    The actual facebook app has to be updated for this to work, by default the app is set up to respond with that message no matter what, so even if in some unholy universe we had a firmware update that gave us full flash support, the videos in the actual facebook app still wouldn't work...

    It must be slow to propagate across the severs because I still am getting the error. I tried uploading a new video taken with my Droid, no go. I tried viewing on both my 2G and 3GS and still no go. I tried taking a video taken from both my 2G & 3GS then viewing on FB, still no go.

    are you trying with the FB app? if so, it won't work until the app is updated, but you can go to the Full Site Facebook page from your iDevice and see the videos just fine, try it out.

    people are going to keep trying to use the facebook app so that they can say its a big fail or that its not working and we are liars. If they tried it on the actual site through the safari app it would be different. The videos would play. But I guess they will do whatever they can to make it easier for them to sleep at night (i.e. thinking we wrong and that the videos actually don't work) Heaven forbid they try both ways.

    Wow Apple controls the interwebz... If facebook ditches flash you can expect youtube to do the same and then it's only a matter of time before others turn in.

    They brought a huge user base and now forces sites to go flash free just because they want it that way. A single company that influences the whole internet.

    Never thought apple would succeed. Bring on the html youporn now
    I'm MYAATT DAAAMOOON!!!

    For facebook, you must go to facebook.com and use the desktop version for iPhone/iPod touch users. Only videos from News Updates and going to someones page, clicking videos of this person, and pick the individual video will work. The video previews on the persons actual page still use flash player.

    Oh and incase anybody wants to put more news, youtube has almost moved to HTML5 too. They have a beta website, youtube.com/html5 . Just join the beta on your iDevice, click the desktop version and search your video. Just to let you know, this is basically the same principal the same as the youtube app though, just takes longer. It would be cooler if we were able to watch the video in the actual website instead of quicktime player. So I guess for iPhone/iPod users its now a choice between youtube app or youtube.com/html5 with quicktime. I think the iPad can do HTML5 in the same website, but it would look the same as the iPad youtube app.

    EDIT: iPhone/iPod users, I think you might like going to the website better. The videos load faster for me than the youtube app (even though they're the same videos). A plus is they're always in HQ not the low quality they put when you're on 3G.

    The report stated that Facebook IS ditching Fash, not has. Big difference!!! To encode ALL the vids on facebook will take some time, so give them a break and stop yelling at people.
