    Hi Everyone,

    Not sure if this is an ios6 issue or a Facebook issue, but when I click video links inside Facebook on my iPad, the video has no sound (even though volume is turned up).

    Any suggestions for how to fix?

    same problem -- no sound in the Facebook app since I upgraded to iOS 6. switching to safari to watch videos in my Facebook newsfeed is a pain. anyone have suggestions?

    Had the same problem with Facebook and other apps which embed videos. Then it occurred to me... The Side Switch... It was on MUTE. switched it off mute... Problem solved! Hope this works for you too!

    Facebook.


    Hi aliasjanedoe,

    It is the app because I have a fairly new ipad 2 so that it isn't the ipad, Facebook is still a beta app so it isn't perfect.

    Hope this helps,
    JT

    It's not the app. Unmute from the multitasking menu. You're muted there. To get to the multitasking menu, double click the home button, and scroll all the way to the left to the main multitasking area where there is likely just the iPod music icon. Look for the mute button and unmute it. Presto. You're now an iPad genius.

    It must be the app. I can hear sound through the headphone, but not the speaker. It is not the mute button on, as if I switch to YouTube I hear sound through the speaker. So there we have it. Facebook, sound through headphones but not through speaker, YouTube sound through speaker. Is it a Facebook problem or an Apple problem? I note there is never a response from Apple on any issues. Are they just conceited or don't know. I'm fed up with trawling through user forums and trying this "because it worked for me". We need definitive answers not the suggestion of a milliard of users fiddling around.

    Further to above post, I reset the iPad, deleted Facebook, reset the iPad again, then re-installed Facebook, but no change in the situation. I have noticed from a search there are loads of similar sound issues on the iPad. I am using an ipad3. Why oh why does Apple never address these issues?
