    I dunno how long they've had this available to us iPhone users now... but you can now watch Facebook embedded videos on iPhone!

    but it only works in Safari when viewing the Full Desktop version of the site.
    Still waiting for the Facebook app to cut to the chase.

    Doesn't work for me. It just says I need to view the video "on a device that supports Adobe Flash". :(

    Same for me, I'm using the full site, is that what others are using to watch them?

    It just opens the YouTube app within the safari. I was hoping it plays it like the iPad

    YouTube videos are playable through the app, aren't they? I know I played one through the app just the other day and I think it went through the YouTube interface.

    So.. Even though they're videos are in an Apple-supported format, we can't watch them via the Facebook app.

    ... wtf.

    I first came across this post last week however this feature has not worked for me yet. I hope it does cuz it's really annoying when trying to watch videos on facebook from my iPhone.
