Recent times, we are forced to face the problem in playing Facebook videos in Facebook mobile app which keeps buffering continuously without playing while using with OnePlus mobile or Android mobiles. Most of the people likely get the problem only after they did recent OnePlus OxygenOS 10.3 update. After this OS update, Facebook videos start to keep buffering continuously in Facebook mobile app.

We might think this is because of mobile internet connection problem, but not same problem happens in high speed internet connection also.

Also, this is not a problem in OnePlus OS update or your OnePlus mobile, the real problem is with Facebook Mobile App. And there is not permanent solution to fix this video buffering issue until Facebook Mobile App gives update to this fix.

Till that we have few workarounds to follow which everyone familiar with already,
