yes it does
Facebook made its player months ago, it open videos with its player for me too. To mention some times it doesn't and lets me chose with what I open but I think thats just a bug.
So you will face that from now on.

did your FVD app get updated?
if yes, it might require a configuration like it did the first time you installed it

as suggested by @ra3or clearing app data and cache from your application settings is suggested.
