Video Bummer

11 03 2014

I just learned that the little pixies inside the web have decided to not allow videos from Facebook pages to appear in WordPress Facebook page links like the one from earlier today. That is, you can only view them if you have a Facebook account, and only via your Facebook account. So, if you’re a Facebooker and you want to view a video that is missing in one of my posts, in which this notice appears:

Facebook Internal Video – Unavailable

This video is only accessible from within the corporate network or VPN.

then just click the time stamp on the source Facebook page (for instance, in today’s Sunrise post, click the link in the post header just below where it says “Manassas National Battlefield Park”. That will take you to MNBP’s page and their original post.

Sorry for this. I assure you it’s NOT MY FAULT. I just hope the same thing doesn’t happen with images.

UPDATE – Looks like the problem is fixed. Thanks to the more than 2,000 of you who came here looking for an answer via Google. Hope you became fans and will visit again some time!

I think this is just a Facebook glitch, seeing as I can’t watch my OWN videos without getting that message. Hopefully its temporary.. ?

Just ran into the same issue. Having an FB account is not the issue as I have one but was unable to watch a video my sister posted (couldn’t watch it on her timeline nor in a new window). Went to a community page and received the same message. Cleared cache, logged out of FB, logged back in and tried again but same message popped up. Wonder what’s going on with FB this time?
