When trying to embed videos from facebook I go to share video then click copy link. Then go to tff and click on embed media and paste the link. But I just get this message.....

What am I doing wrong?

Thanks Joe.


Edit. Getting link from facebook app on Android phone and using chrome browser for tff.

That looks like a link to the post not to the video. I managed to do it a few weeks ago. Whats the link you are trying to do? I'll have a look.

Just a video to go in the jokes thread, but I've tried other videos before and always have the same trouble.

Seems to work ok - you have you click on the video to get the URL of the video. The one above was:

facebook.com/ combinesharvestersthreshers/videos/273989300145754/

Looks like you are trying to embed the post.

Nope, still can't do it, maybe it's because I'm trying do it on my phone from the facebook app. You can't click on the video to get the URL.

Doesn't look like its possible to copy the Video URL from the Facebook APP - seems they only want you to share it on Facebook!
