My http trafic analyze product which is running on lippcap and wriiten with C++ has some troubles with videos which are opened from facebook.

I can classify websites and my program outputs log files which contains IP/PORT/URL/REFERERWEBSITE/WEBSITE data. I am parsing "REFERERWEBSITE" information from request header's , "Referer:" field .

But when I open youtube from facebook there is not any "Referer:" field. I am checking the video session I can't see anything about "facebook" in URL nor in any other field.

Now I am in a situation I must get this information somehow . Any advice will be extremely appreciated.
