I'm seeing people upload facebook urls like this


The filter only works with urls like this: v={id}.

This patch works with either type:

preg_match('/(.*)?[v|video_id]=([^&#]*)/', $url, $matches);

Has something else recently changed with Facebook URLs? Mine were all working fine and then suddenly stopped working. I have applied the patch above which I can now pull in thumbnails, but I am still not getting videos to display as they were. Anyone else having issues?

This isn't fix at the module yet and happens the same as #3

Looks like urls with the "v" parameter have stopped working.
Maybe try changing the urls in your content to use the "video_id" parameter?
Try these

I created this patch which works with facebook urls without problems at display videos and their thumbnails.
I hope you find it useful.
