    How are you accessing Facebook on your iPad? Are you using the app or are you using the Facebook website? If you're using the website, try using the app, instead and let us know if that helps.
    The app version of Facebook may adapt those videos so they play on the iPad, as there is no native support for Flash on any iOS device.
