I think you are missing a comma after your sharing block closes.

Here’s a simplified example of what you you have on your page:

<div id="container"></div> <script type="text/javascript">
width: 300,
height: 250,
autostart: ‘false’,
mute: ‘false’,
file: ‘bunny.mp4’,
sharing: {
code: encodeURI(“<iframe src='' />”),
link: “”

Hope this helps,

Hi Todd,

That helped to get the player and shared overlay feature to appear on the page however the video is not embedding with the social networking pages/new feeds. The link carries over but the video player itself is not being embedded into the players. Can you please tell me what I'm doing wrong?

Thanks for the help

That is the intended functionality. We are not able to currently embed onto Facebook with JW 6.
