Ok, this is long time due tutorial for you guys.. So I am going to show you how to Embed a video from facebook

1. First go to the facebook page where video is located - example this page `https://www.facebook.com/malamalagamereserve/videos/1058296017555355/`

2. Copy the last part of the url(link) which is numeric, i.e. 1058296017555355 (this is id of the video)

3. Add this numeric video id (1058296017555355) to the last of this:- `https://www.facebook.com/video.php?v=`

4. So the final url(link) will be like this:- `https://www.facebook.com/video.php?v=1058296017555355` . Now this is the link that we need to use in WildFact. Note that only numerical id will change for different videos.

5. Now follow this tutorial - https://wildfact.com/forum/topic-how-to-...s-in-posts to embed video on WildFact, instead using youtube use facebook in drop down in step3

Hope this help
Note: Facebook videos when embed does not show play button, that is why I write "Click on image to play the video" just below it, otherwise reader think it as image

Let me know if you guys are facing any problem

Is this applicable for only public videos?

@sanjay Public videos from open groups (i'm not even a member there) on FB often show to be unavailable r some reason. Happens only with videos posted in Facebook Groups.

For example my latest post in impressive-females thread. Could you please fix it?

If you figure out what's causing it, let us know...

@Rishi The said video is not visible when you are not logged in facebook, Only videos that can be seen without even login in facebook can be embed. This is facebook restriction and we can do anything about it.
