We only support this in JW5 right now –

Is there any way I can edit the code for JW Player that can help me achieve this?

Not for JW6, since JW6 can only be embedded using our JS, and FB embedding requires OG tag embedding.

I'm trying to get vids to embed in Facebook and feel like I'm close but it's just not getting there. I have a JW5 Flash player, and here's my meta code:
<meta property="og:type" content="movie"/>
<meta property="og:video" content="">
<meta property="og:video:height" content="290" />
<meta property="og:video:width" content="480" />
<meta property="og:video:type" content="application/x-shockwave-flash" />

But when I use Facebook lint, it seems to munge up the querystring.

"url": "https:\/\/\/theme_overrides\/Respond\/js\/jwplayer\/player.swf?file=http\u00253A\u00252F\\u00252Fvideos\u00252Frestaurants\u00252Frestaurant-elizabeth.mp4&autostart=true",
"type": "application\/x-shockwave-flash",
"width": 480,
"height": 290

Should I be encoding the filename somehow?
