If you open the Gallery, can you still view your videos? What if you share from there?

If you can't see your videos (are they stored in SD card?), chances are the files have been damaged.

yes I can open my gallery and they're there and they play just fine but when I try to share them to Facebook nothing shows up just a blank page on Facebook. Also I'm getting that Google photo app wants to close all the time and I've done partial cache clear. even all my prior videos that I've taken in the past if I try to upload them will not go to Facebook either. But like I said I can see them in Google photos and I can see him in my gallery just fine. Do you have any suggestions?

Does the Facebook app have permission to access storage? If you try to add the video FROM the Facebook app (not sharing through the Gallery), do you get the same page?

OK, then it sounds like an issue with accessing storage for some reason. Have you tried clearing the Phone's cache after the update (not the app, the phone...through Recovery Mode)? What about doing it in Safe Mode (if it works in Safe Mode, then there might be an app that's causing trouble)? Uninstalling/Reboot/Re-install Facebook and Photos, have you tried that?

OK, yes I have uninstalled reinstalled fcbk and did Safe Mode still same. Called tech at att and he remoted into my phone we did several things same thing as last technician the other day but he was telling me that since my Oreo download on the 21st it takes about 10 days to fully update he could tell in the system that it hasn't finished the update so I'm going to wait a few more days after my 10 days and call them back and see if they can remote into my phone again and see if the whole Oreo update is fully complete he said some apps take a little bit longer to update so I don't know if that's true I'm running out of options.

Yeah, that doesn't sound true at all. The update takes minutes (an hour if your phone is really slow), and while app updates might not show up immediately (and only if they are available), if you uninstalled and re-installed, the app you want to use is already updated.

I hate to suggest this, but I think you might need to start backing things up and getting ready for a factory reset, and see if that works.

Forgot to ask, does sharing pictures work? Is the issue just with videos? What about sharing to other apps (I'd suggest Instagram, but since that's Facebook-owned, the code might be similar, so it'd be better to try with another app)? I wonder if the bug IS with just a few apps.

as far as I know it's only Facebook and Instagram on the video issue that is uploading it from their site. I can share a video to Instagram through my gallery but not to Facebook. and I just tried to send a video through text message and it doesn't even give me the option videos are there just shows my photos. So that's strange. Yes I can share pictures just fine. and also just tried to share in my photo gallery of video to Facebook and through text message and it's not going through the app keeps wanting to close. I have uninstalled it reinstalled it stop the updates free updated still the same thing

Wow. That's really weird. Long shot, but try uninstalling the Video Player app and reinstalling from Galaxy Apps? (not sure you can do that...). Looks like a factory reset might be the only option... ??????

Last try. If you use a 3rd party app to record video and then try to share that, does it also fail (I'm almost certain the answer will be 'yes' but still...) Just can't think of why only videos would be failing, it's so weird.

It seems everyone with an S7 Active has these issues after the Oreo update. No word on a fix, but it will take another update or patch to fix it. One user said a factory reset fixed his issues but I'm not ready for that yet... Hopefully they will get us an update fix soon.

Ummm... Haven't used cameras in a while haha. I used Camera Zoom FX a long time ago, maybe give that a go. But mostly any camera app would do for what I want to test (if the video from the main app, for some reason, is the one that fails).
