Embedded timeline video not played, The media could not be played


I embed a twitter timeline like so:

<a class="twitter-timeline" href="https://twitter.com/Support">Tweets by Support</a> <script async src="//platform.twitter.com/widgets.js" charset="utf-8"></script>

You can see it at:

If you try to play a video in the timeline, then you get a black screen with text “The media could not be played.”. Some videos are played normally, others show error message.
Exactly this tweet is not playing in support timeline: https://twitter.com/TwitterSafety/status/846459111436824576

This is just an example, I encountered this problem when embedding another account timeline to my clients website.

Thanks for the help!


It seems it happens with the retweeted videos.


Anyone? :slight_smile:


This is strange - thanks for raising. I’ll see if the web team can take a look at it, as I’m able to reproduce.


Thanks for looking into it. Any reply from the web team?


I think the problem is solved now.


Yes, this should now be resolved everywhere.
