Facebook Video Calling and Opera
The reason for Facebook’s block seems to be a problem with our version of Opera on OS X. Facebook’s plug-in installs itself as
FacebookVideoCalling.webplugin on Mac, but our browser only recognises plug-ins with a
.plugin extension. This causes their plug-in detection scripts to think the installation failed, triggering a renewed installation process.
Our fearless engineers are working to fix this issue in Opera code as soon as possible, and we’re also in talks with Facebook to find a quick resolution to the problem.
