Facebook unable to play video error

Any one else with problems playing video 's in your FB timeline? When at home on wifi I get the message "unable to play video check your internet connection". When I'm on 4G or LTE data I do not get that error message but the video's never load to play, they just sit there with a spinning circle in the middle.

I'm starting to wonder if it's my ISP but that wouldn't explain why vids from FB don't work with my cell data thru AT&T. Was visiting my folks yesterday, FB video's worked like they should when connected to their wifi. As soon as I left tried to watch the same FB video over cell data and nothing !

At home on wifi my 5s that's jailbroken won't play yet my iPad mini that a jailbroken iPad mini plays them fine. This is insane. Sometimes at school the 5s will work on their wifi but it's hit or miss

Restting my network settings fixes this on my ipad mini. Whether on atnt or wifi....videos give that error. Until i reset network. Another problem ive come across is pictures wont open. The preview/thumbnail show up, but clicking the picture should open the actual full sized version. Sometime clicking the pic does nothing :shrug:

I tried resetting network settings but no luck. I'm not sure if it's a tweak or not. Pretty much the exact cydia packages on my ipad and FB video's are fine. Video's also play perfectly normal on my phone with FB's "Paper" app.

Do you guys use tetherme?

I'm having the same issue at home on wifi or 3G my ip5s 7.0.6 won't play videos on Facebook
Tried at my friends house on wifi works fine??
Have a iPad 7.0.6 with my account on Facebook all works fine on wifi at home.
Wife has iP5 no jb and videos ok. So it seems to be isolated to my device.
It's driving me nuts

hi to all today facebook roll another update in app store but my problem remains like yours ! i test 3 devices on same cellular network and after on same wifi spot.
I use 2 iphone 5s and one ipad 3. All 3 devices have same ios 7.0.1
all 3 devices have latest fb app installed, all 3 devices was jbked with same tool
anyway in all combination on one iphone 5s FB video can not be played !
on that device i even play with fb iternal settings but with no luck, i try even on that devices various thing in safe mode !
why in safe mode, because to be shure that no tweak have connection with that bug
i try install vpn and connect true vpn but ip adress have nothing to do with bug.
if i login tru safari on fb, videos playing with no problem at all, but u want to be able to watch it on app. if somebody have some thing to try ... i will test it
that is real mistery
btw. i forget to write that i do network reset but with no luck
