FaceBook videos won't play

Posted videos - shorts - that jump to own page to play - stop in less than 5 seconds. No error message - just goes back to play arrow.
The ones that play instantly, in line, don't stop, are fine.
I tried clear cache
I tried incognito mode
All videos watched directly on a website or youtube play fine - it's just the FB posted ones that flip over. And seems to be no means to stop them from flipping to second screen.

This is a newish problem - I've had the Asus Chrome for maybe 3 months - it's been that last month or so that it became a problem.

Update to the most recent version of your web browser (example: Chrome, Firefox, Safari, Edge, Internet Explorer). If your computer is running Windows 7, Windows Vista, Windows XP or an earlier version of Windows, the issue you're experiencing may be fixed by using a different browser.

Lewis is right. The problem may be in your browser. Also, maybe your OS is the lack of required drivers for your hardware? It happens. I wasn't able to launch new game on my PC only because I had Windows 7 installed and it didn't have proper driver for my graphics card. Also, what's with Instagram videos? They use similar tools. BTW, I like Instagram more than Facebook because it's easier operate with. Not so long I've even bought real Instagram followers for a low price for my page. Now it's popular more than ever. Why? Because I wanted so. Thinking about concentrating on Instagram and TikTok.

I suggest you migrate to Instagram. I am sure that you can find the same videos on Instagram. You can follow the pages that you like. Plus you can see posts, videos, and photos from other pages that post the same content that you like. Plus on Instagram, you can get free likes on your page. You can use IGautoliketo get free Instagram likes instantly. You can buy them if you want more. You can also get comments and followers if you want. It is a limitless website and social media. I am amazed by this website.
