Title:

Facebook videos are black

Text:

On my macbook pro only, facebook videos don't work. They appear as a black square (no audio either). Embedded youtube videos work just fine though.
I tried both Chrome and Safari and got the same results. Any ideas how to fix this? Thank you!!

I found the solution! Apparently my problem was account-specific.

When other people logged into facebook on my laptop they could watch the videos, I just couldn't watch it on my laptop.
So I put an "s" in the URL right after http, which would make it https://www.facebook.com/ And it worked! Apparently it needed a secure URL for it to work. Interesting.
