Twitter Card Validator Not Allowing Player Card To Be Submitted for Approval


#1

We’ve implemented ‘player’ cards on some of our video pages, and when we submit to the validator we get:

INFO:  Page fetched successfully
INFO:  25 metatags were found
INFO:  twitter:card = player tag found
WARN:  Not whitelisted

Upon entering our Administrative and Website information and hitting “Request Approval” we get the following message:

*.startups.co whitelist request for failed
ERROR: player is not a valid card type

We’d like to submit our cards for approval, but it looks as if there may be some sort of bug not allowing us to. We observed a similar case here: https://twittercommunity.com/t/player-is-not-a-valid-card-type/99282

Example of affected URL: https://www.startups.co/education/lessons/data-driven-decisions

We’ve looked through the Player Card approval process, as well as the markup, and there doesn’t seem to be an issue with our markup for the example above:

<meta name="twitter:card" content="player" data-react-helmet="true">
<meta name="twitter:site" content="@startupsco" data-react-helmet="true">
<meta name="twitter:image" content="https://d1oio9abzfhcfi.cloudfront.net/media/lessons__lesson__image/00_MG_Main.jpg" data-react-helmet="true">
<meta name="twitter:description" content="Big data. Data-driven. A/B testing. Optimization. These terms are often repeated in Silicon Valley, but what do they really mean for your company today? Mike Gr..." data-react-helmet="true">
<meta name="twitter:title" content="Data-Driven Decisions | Startups.co" data-react-helmet="true">
<meta property="twitter:player" content="https://d1oio9abzfhcfi.cloudfront.net/media/lessons__media__transcoded/1425330219-666/hd.mp4" data-react-helmet="true">
<meta property="twitter:player:width" content="1280" data-react-helmet="true">
<meta property="twitter:player:height" content="720" data-react-helmet="true">

Any advice would be appreciated.

Thanks

Thanks - investigating.

I tried doing the same thing and it’s doing the same exact thing to me. I’m still trying to find a solution also

Thanks, we are looking into this issue at present.

Please retry your whitelist requests. We cannot provide any specific ETA for whitelisting but this should now enable submission.


#6

Thank you. I’ve submitted for approval successfully!
