oEmbed player on Facebook


(Whatsaross) #1

I'm curious to know how exactly the oEmbed player works when sharing on Facebook. I noticed in the source of the embed urls include og:type as video along with og:type:video and og:type:url. However, the model interactive is (obviously) not a video player. I'm trying to accomplish something similar, but any og urls I provide are inserted as a <video> sources. I'm just generally curious as to how Sketchfab's embed works.

Thanks for any insight.


Hi there,

You have to be whitelisted and implemented by Facebook, which they rarely do for 3rd party embeds. Good luck :slight_smile:

Hi James - I was slowly coming to that conclusion myself. I appreciate the quick response!
