Can't embed facebook video
I can embed YouTube videos fine but not Facebook videos.
The blog I need help with is wordsthoughtsdreams.wordpress.com.
Hi, I can’t seem to attach screenshots but basically when the post is published/previewed, only the Facebook Embed Caption shows, but not the video.

The guide above explains the whole process
I spent about two hours trying everything in the guide you linked before posting this topic. Currently I can embed YouTube videos fine just by pasting in the YouTube URL.
But for Facebook video:
1) Pasting the URL https://www.facebook.com/InterUniLGBTNetwork/videos/400136377240732/ into a text block or a classic editor block doesn’t work. When the page is published, the caption shows up but not the video. I ensured that the url was NOT hyperlinked in the editor. Again I wish I could show screenshots. :)
2) Using the shortcode
[facebook url="https://www.facebook.com/InterUniLGBTNetwork/videos/400136377240732/"]gives the same issue. It simply doesn’t show.
Can you give a link to the post?
At the very top of the post under the title, I have used a shortcode,
but it isn’t showing up.
In tests when I used a Facebook Embed block, and include a caption, the caption shows but not the video.
I’m seeing this link https://www.facebook.com/InterUniLGBTNetwork/videos/400136377240732/?v=400136377240732 when i visited your site.
Kindly check again
Wow, thank you! It didn’t occur to me to check in another browser. It loads fine on Chrome and Edge, but surprisingly not Firefox (which was what I was using). Turns out I had done things right after all, and it was just Firefix.
Thank you so much for your time and effort! :)
Glad you could fix it :)
