Videos in Faceache don't play

SWMBO gets many Faceache links with videos sent to her. These invariably fail to play, we don't know why. Thinking that there was a compatibility issue with whatever was trying to play them I installed VLC on her machine 'cos VLC can play anything! They still don't play. She is logged in. When she clicks the link a video screen opens in a Firefox window showing a still from the video with a PLAY arrow (triangel in a circle). Clicking on this causes the still view to turn black with the circle chasing BUSY indicator but after about half a second it goes back to the still picture. I am not sure that the VLC is the default player for these videos as I don't know what format the videos are encrypted to. The behaviour was the same before the installation of VLC..............

The system is Win XP with loads of memory and CPU grunt.

Any ideas please?
