We recently worked with Facebook to enable playback of Brightcove video in the 'News Feed.' Now Brightcove publishers can allow their users to share content into their News Feeds on Facebook*.
One of our first customers to take advantage of this is Rainbow Media's WE tv. I have also created a demo of this and attached the source code with getting started instructions below.
- Download the file and open a text editor - Download Source Code
- Edit Meta tags at top of the HTML page
- Replace existing Brightcove player with one from your account
- Edit "image_src" and "video_src" within Facebook button code to reference your image and the video player that you would like to be posted in the News Feed (retain format of 'video_src' url and add your publisher/player/video IDs).
