What is a Social URL (oEmbed)?

A Social URL or oEmbed tag is a player embed code that provides you with a URL address to an automatically generated player page on our content delivery network (CDN).

When selecting this tag type, the Portal will automatically generate a page for the player that will also include relevant metadata tags for social networks such as Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn and Weibo.

This embeddable link can then be shared directly in a social network platform that and will display a player within that platform.

For example, posting the Social URL oEmbed link in a Facebook post will automatically render a player within Facebook.
