How to implement cards/metadata with embedded content?


#1

Hi all,

We often allow our customers to embed our video player into their site. EG: www.someonesblog.com will have an iframe that contains our content from www.ourvideoplayer.com.

We’d like to use Twitter Player cards to share using their referral URL (someonesblog.com), but the meta data tags necessary for Twitter card integration will reside on our embed code (ourvideoplayer.com). Will Twitter be able to scrape that metadata from our site, or does the meta data have to reside at the parent/master level?

Another possible solution would be to point the share to a script on our server that contains the meta data and then redirects the user to the referral URL, but I’m not sure if Twitter is able to read the meta data from a script that later redirects to another site.

Thanks!
