Since today we noticed a big change in how twitter custom player are rendered.
Before what you had to do to see a custom player card was clicking on “open media” and start / unmute your media. Now you have to click on open media then on the default play button and then unmute / start your video (asked by twitter guidelines)
Same on a profil a pinned tweet with a custom player card was always open now we have a wierd player that you have to click .
Well first is it intended ? You now need nothing less then 3 clicks to start a custom player ? It’s also working this way in the validator now.
