    Hello! Up until yesterday I was able to choose which video player I could use. Now, it uses the default FB player and there is NO way to change this. I tried clearing defaults, deleting Allcast cause I thought "maybe" there was something in the update that messed with the defaults. Nothing works. I do not want to do a factory reset.

    I have a Samsung Tab II and it now is doing the same thing? Both were fine yesterday and today now they auto default to the FB player. I did not know there was one built into the app but there must be. The only thing I have not done is delete the current version of FB.

    Can someone please check if this is the case on your phone? I would love to be able to use Allcast to view videos and up until yesterday I could. What is weird is there has been no update to the FB app in a while. Very very strange.

    Thank you for your help!!

    It has something to do with the latest FB update on the 13th. What worked (temporarily) for me was to uninstall and then re-install. After some time it reverts back though. It is definitely an app issue...how it behaves with this phone.

    Yup, it is the FB app and the auto play. Why do this? It sucks...may try to revert to an older version if I can.

    Find the app you want to remove from default such as photo or whatever

    Until Facebook makes the change there is nothing anyone can do. I have cleared defaults many times and that does not solve the problem. Maybe try using Friendcaster or similar. I used to use it but it was horribly buggy.

    This is because of the latest Facebook update... Most phones and tabs auto update their apps on WiFi... Hence you don't realise that there is a change between yesterday and today... All of a sudden the videos start opening in-app by default...

    Go to settings >apps>facebook.
    Uninstall updates... It'll ask you "do you want to revert to factory version?" Say "yes".

    Once done, open fb app, give your user credentials and log in...

    Touch any video and you have multiple options available as old...

    Enjoy!!!

    The new version of FB is the cause. I uninstalled the new versiin and re-installed the most recent backed up version I had and it works fine now. I use Tubemate to download FB video and Youtube video.
