Videos will not play. Install Firefox sudo apt install firefox, Chrome or Chromium and get rid of this browser by typing in terminal sudo apt remove --purge epiphany

    The most funny fact is that developers are using Firefox or other browsers, but they put this nonsense browser into Elementary. Have no idea why.

Epiphany actually don't support MSE and VP9 codecs which is necessary to play YouTube videos. Probably that is why it does not support videos on Facebook.
