    The Facebook app is created by BlackBerry so it's possible that it won't offer the full functionality of the Facebook app created by Facebook itself.

    You could surpass this issue by viewing the video from Facebook within browser

    I don't have this issue. Did you change your default browser ?

    Could it be because the person is sending you a MP4 video file instead of sharing a link of a video online?

    Ha, that's something else. I thought you spoke of video on your timeline, not via the chat. I guess it can depend on the video format. Did you try a long press ? Sorry, I can't help more.

    Perhaps the browser can't play mp4 video files, and thus the video player needs you to download the video

    I'm thinking it's the unofficial FB chat app made by Nemory.
