Facebook videos are not playing in fullscreen!

Hello,
I have a problem playing facebook videos in chrome: In Mozilla firefox, I can play them in fullscreen mode, and I can choose wherever I want to play (I can play directly from the minute 1, from the middle of the video etc..)
In google chrome, although youtube video are working in fullscreen, facebook video are not: I can't play videos on facebook in fullscreen, and I can't select the wherever I want to play. I am obliged to play it in normal mode and from the start till the end (I can't jump to the middle of the video for example)

I have the same problem and was able to fix it by changing the zoom. It s weird but true.
Go to the zoom in Chrome and change it to normal Crtl +0, then it you should work. good luck

In fact. Accidently I changed the zoom to normal and it worked but I didn't know why. Now I tested your theory: when I zoomed in, it didn't work. So I guess we should report this as bug!

I have this same problem and I'd like to get it fixed as I'm using Chrome through FullHD TV so I have to zoom in every site.

This problem isn't just Facebook. It is any site that embeds YouTube.. MANY sites. Same problem for me with Facebook and Elance.
 
Really annoying.... Not only is it annoying you can't switch to where you want to watch.
You can't turn the volume down when it suddenly starts blasting on a site that loads the video automatically.
 
Other issues:
1. When I switch back to a tab after a while the tab is WHITE? and I have to wait for it to load again.
2. When I have many tabs open it bogs down my computer HARD. Firefox manages many tabs a lot better IMO.
3. Crashes often
4. Why does it not have a bookmark browse? I would like a list of my bookmarks on the list to browse without having to navigate through drop down menus every time.
 
This browser is not as good as firefox IMO.

right click on your flash video, go to settings. The left tab should be the tab for display with the only option being "enable hardware acceleration." Uncheck that and video should begin to work in fullscreen again. Of course you shouldn't have to do this, but it does seem to work.
