    Hi....can anyone help me with this?

    I successfully jail broke my iPad. But now when I go to websites like Facebook, I can no longer view embedded videos. When I click on the vid, the browser takes me to a new page that says:

    Click download to the file to your /var/Mobile/library/downloads folder.

    There are 2 buttons, one says 'download!' the other says 'Play in media player'.

    If I click to play, I hear the video, but see nothing...and I never get back to the original site (Facebook in this case). Just stuck on this landing page.

    I downloaded icabmobile thinking it was a safari thing...same problem.

    Any thoughts? This did not happen before I jail broke the iPad

    Thanks

    this is not just from jailbreaking your ipad. You install some sort of safari download plugin. You must uninstall it if you dont like what its doing.
