Just thought i would be the bearer of bad new's all my videos that i have sent to facebook via the phone or uploaded via the PC i cannot watch anymore on my N900s MicroB or FireFox as it requires me to update flash.

Maybe its just my phone or somthing but everyone better check it out and see if im correct.

I think they're requiring Flash 10.0.0.0 and not 10.1.0.0 (or higher) - that's what Vimeo and a lot of other sites are doing right now.

First off **** 'em.

Secondly, I have a workaround.

But it's not elegant and doesn't work for videos in albums (at present anyway)

Requirements:
* firefox ("minefield" NOT fennec)
* Facebook Video firefox extension (alternatively you may be able to use the port of Greasemonkey and the original greasemonkey script in conjunction with MicroB but I haven't tested it)
* mplayer (or any other video player that can FLV; osso-mediaplayer does not)

1.) Open firefox (the port floating around someone made for Diablo is labeled as "GrandParadiso"; aka one of the developer build codenames)
2.) Edit>Preferences>Set default download folder to /home/user/MyDocs/.videos
3.) Install this: https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/9614/ (you will first have to click "allow"), then restart firefox and by this they mean close firefox and re-open it.
4.) Visit a page such as: http://www.facebook.com/pages/Fire-F...r/145513041952

5.) Click "Download Video" link
6.) Choose Save

7.) Open mplayer and select the video (if you use gmplayer it should find the video for you)


What doesn't work:
Videos embedded like such: http://www.facebook.com/video/video.php?v=37403547074

Okay yeah you can just use the greasemonkey script + MicroB

1.) apt-get install greasemonkey-webaddon (or install from HAM or I suppose fapman or whatever)
2.) Open microb and restart it a couple times
3.) Open greasemonkey
4.) Visit http://userscripts.org/scripts/show/9789 and click the Install button ( http://userscripts.org/scripts/source/9789.user.js )
5.) Answer yes to install the script
6.) Visit http://www.facebook.com/pages/Fire-F...r/145513041952 (or wherever)
7.) Choose Save (not Open because it will open in default media player which cannot open MP4)
8.) Open with [g]mplayer and enjoy.

I know I'll get flamed for this... but what's Nokia's official word about this? Maemo 5 is still supported, right? These workarounds are a ton more complicated than they need to be.

I do, however, blame the sites that are going to Flash 10.x for no real reason - there's no extra functionality in moving to FP 10.1 as they're using it so far (read: no 3D, no added features really)
