Can I use the Bitmovin player within a Facebook post?

Yes, Bitmovin empowers you to share you videos on Facebook! To do so, you simply have to prepare some additional information in the header section of the page you want to post, like:

        <!-- Open Graph tags -->
    <meta property="og:title"           content="YOUR TITLE HERE" />
    <meta property="og:description"     content="SOME DESCRIPTION HERE" />
    <meta property="og:type"            content="video" />
    <meta property="og:url"             content="URL COME HERE" />
    <meta property="og:site_name"       content="SITE NAME TO BE PLACED HERE"/>

        <!-- Video player specific OG tags -->
    <meta property="og:video:url"           content="http://www.dash-player.com/facebook/bitdashplayer.swf?src=PATH_TO_YOUR_MANIFEST&amp;controlBarAutoHide=true&amp;controlBarAutoHideTimeout=4&autoPlay=true" />
    <meta property="og:video:secure_url"    content="https://www.dash-player.com/facebook/bitdashplayer.swf?src=PATH_TO_YOUR_MANIFEST&amp;controlBarAutoHide=true&amp;controlBarAutoHideTimeout=4&autoPlay=true" />
    <meta property="og:video:width"         content="640" />
    <meta property="og:video:height"        content="360" />
    <meta property="og:video:type"          content="application/x-shockwave-flash" />

Please make sure, to replace the uppercase placeholders with your desired information – note that the path to the manifest must be URL encoded. A sample code snippet, using our Sintel test video looks as follows:

        <!-- Open Graph tags -->
    <meta property="og:title"           content="Bitmovin's Adaptive Streaming Player now on Facebook!" />
    <meta property="og:description"     content="Post your video streams on Facebook, using Bitmovin's player solution." />
    <meta property="og:type"            content="video" />
    <meta property="og:url"             content="https://www.dash-player.com/demo/facebook-integration/" />
    <meta property="og:site_name"       content="Bitmovins's Playground"/>

        <!-- Video player specific OG tags -->
    <meta property="og:video:url"           content="http://www.dash-player.com/facebook/bitdashplayer.swf?src=https%3A%2F%2Fbitdash-a.akamaihd.net%2Fcontent%2Fsintel%2Fsintel.mpd&amp;controlBarAutoHide=true&amp;controlBarAutoHideTimeout=4&autoPlay=true" />
    <meta property="og:video:secure_url"    content="https://www.dash-player.com/facebook/bitdashplayer.swf?src=https%3A%2F%2Fbitdash-a.akamaihd.net%2Fcontent%2Fsintel%2Fsintel.mpd&amp;controlBarAutoHide=true&amp;controlBarAutoHideTimeout=4&autoPlay=true" />
    <meta property="og:video:width"         content="640" />
    <meta property="og:video:height"        content="360" />
    <meta property="og:video:type"          content="application/x-shockwave-flash" />
