Custom skin for JWP7 Facebook embed


I am currently embedding a JWPlayer 7 to Facebook.

Following this documentation and in your example the embbeded player is a JW5 player with a white skin.

In my iframe, with these open graph tags:
<meta property="og:video:secure_url" content="https://somevideo.mp4">
<meta property="og:video" content="http://somevideo.mp4">
<meta property="og:video:type" content="video/mp4">

Facebook just play the video with the default browser player. How can I play a MP4 with a custom JWPlayer skin?

Currently, JW 7 is compatible with Facebook Instant Articles. It can not be embedded into the newsfeed.

Hello Donni.

Thanks for your response.

Is there any available documentation to learn how to embed a JWPlayer (with custom skin) through Facebook Instant Articles?

Kind regards,

Not at this time, but it should work out of the box.
