    Dear,

    I got a 9900 with 7.1.0.569 with facebook 3.2.0.12. The issue I'm being faced with is the following:

    When I'm in my facebook app I sometimes come across videos posted by my friends. When I click on the link for the video (usually youtube videos), it opens up my browser and I get redirected. Immediately after that I get the message "The item you selected cannot be displayed. Do you wish to save the item?"

    Additional info: I'm connected to a wifi network.

    What could be causing this?
    Thx in advance.

    I get that a lot too and I don't know how to fix it. Sorry. I was hoping someone on here did. What I do is just copy the link from the mobile FB site and then paste it in the browser. Lame but it works.

    Maybe this should be reported to RIM? Is this a problem encountered by many?

    No problems here... except when a video is linked that isn't compatible for mobile devices (ie Flash not HTML5)

    I know I can install the youtube app. But thats not the point. The ability to open up a link directly from my facebookapp exists. I want to be able to use it and I can't. We integrate an option that doesn't work properly just to say afterwards "hey but you can use another app for it". That's just not the way it should be

    You must install the BB youtube app in order to open the youtube links in facebook app.

    Is it even an app? It seems like It was only a shortcut. I don't get how this even would make sense. Because I can open videos if the person posts the HTTS address

    exactly. If you get the links there is no problem. But opening it by clickin in the facebook app is a no go
