    i have the same exact problem! i first tried to record  video about 4 months ago. and i've tried all the time since then and it NEVER works!

    it always says "An error occurred. Unable to connect to server. Please try again later, or now."
    I have a mac, the latest flash player installed, the internet connection is fine, and my camera is working. 
    I can actually see myself in the preview, and then as soon as i hit the record button the error message pops up.

Unable connect server

The servers that... well... serve your location for Facebook might be down. Just give it a minute (of 30). If it still doesn't work, close and re-open your browser, and try again. Still not? Delete all cookies, history and temporary files in your browser, close the browser and try again. Still not? Restart your PC. Still no solution? You might consider that I was right on the servers beeing temporary down...

This may be an issue with the version of Flash that you have installed -- if you have it installed at all.
Got to the Flash about web site to see if you have the latest version of Flash and upgrade/install as needed.
Additionally, when the Flash application request permission to use your webcam, be sure to approve and save your decision.

Unable to connect to server- is the only response from Facebook

Do you have a 3rd party firewall on your computer?

It might be the firewall is blocking the connection. Try turning the firewall off, temporally, and trying to connect. If you do, you need to set your firewall to allow the software to connect to the video server (contact the video server site for the port info).

Cant log in

When attempting to log-in on Facebook, I am being greeted with a "Network Timeout - The server at is taking too long to respond." error message.

The best solution I can offer is to try logging in to Facebook again in a day or two. It is most likely a Facebook issue, NOT a user issue. The Facebook staff may be doing maintenance, there may be some kind of outage, or the server could simply be overloaded at the moment. In any of these cases, there is nothing a Facebook user can do but sit patiently and try again in a day or two.
