So the thing is if I play it on 4G it doesn’t need buffering lol....so you can’t really blame Facebook. Maybe net neutrality actually is dead?
Same here .. On 3G videos work perfectly .. But this happens sometimes not always ..
Bro im not sure i do get buffering with JAZZ LTE aswell so I directly blame facebook for that lol
Lol
I experience no buffering on PTCL and Telenor 4G.
Every video needs buffering. You cant play a video if it doesnt buffer so its either slow or fast buffering. P.s. I do also notice slow buffering issue on my Warid LTE as well for Facebook.
Yes by no buffering I meant no interruptions in playback.

It's obvious throttling. I used to experience it back in the day on PTCL but none these days.

That could be true as well. I just wonder just like PTCL do throttle services like Youtube and Netflix, why would SF throttle a social network rather than streaming services.
Because Facebook consumes a hell of a lot of data as well since literally everyone uses it.
The usage of Netflix is fairly low in Pakistan and even YouTube isn't an ubiqous as Facebook.
Also because Facebook isn't really optimized to stream videos like YT and other streaming services.
In Karachi PTCL did throttle Facebook till the end of 2016 when I was living there. However the PTCL I have in Islamabad has zero throttling of anything. So in the same company the policy could be different depending on area.

Its the CDN issue with Facebook, not only in Pakistan but in many countries. Thier CDN sucks.

That wouldn’t explain why it plays perfectly fine when I switch to 4G
Maybe our telecomms have better route to Facebook CDNs and that pretty much explains it.

FB video is abysmal. It's surprising how such a bad video player can exist in 2018. Open the same video on facebook and youtube and the difference is clear. Facebook compression is so garbage that a 1080p video looks like a 360p video. AND still manages to buffer 20 different times. (They also just added 1080p video support a few months ago, before then every single video would get downgraded to 720p. Shoot in 1080, 2k or even 4k facebook would somehow manage to make it look like it's shot from a china phone camera from 1997.) The thing is, on youtube when you upload a video, it gets compressed and stored on their server as one file. You can use any download manager to see that the video on youtube is one file. On facebook however, for some reason (maybe to stop piracy or whatever) the video gets divided into segments after their God awful compression. If you use a download manager to download a video from facebook you will see many many different files to download and those are all tiny segments of the video. It's the player that is so garbage that when playing and switching between the segments it gets stuck. Sometimes even goes to flash to stream video (that's how bad it is!) Amazon Prime and Netflix both use a similar player where the video gets separated into segments, you will see on netflix or amazon some shots look awesome full HD and then suddenly next two seconds would be 240p and then two seconds later it will be HD again. But their player is actually good and can take it while FB player is a mess. And switches to flash player instead of HTML5 when it gets stuck and this just makes it even more of a burden on the browser. You can see the photo I've attached and see the difference in quality (that is if fb's photo compression doesn't ruin it and make everything look the same). The top one is from facebook with the most amount of compression and took the longest to load (minus the bottom one), the middle one is youtube with less compression and took no time to load. The bottom one is from apple trailers where there's no compression. The last one took the longest to load but also shows the footage as it was intended without compression.
