Facebook videos are black

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!!

Update

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.

Answered! View the answer I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

Neither of these worked unfortunately. And it's only facebook videos. Youtube, Skype, iSight, vimeo, flash games, they all work! Just not facebook. I tried contacting facebook and they never replied.
