Shared video is not playing

I'm trying to share a video on the facebook wall // timeline. Everything seems fine - the Debugger-Tool doesn't encounter any errors

    Meta Tag:   <meta property="og:type" content="video" />
    Meta Tag:   <meta property="og:url"  content="" />
    Meta Tag:   <meta property="og:title" content="Speed by microsoft" />
    Meta Tag:   <meta property="og:description" content="(material by microsoft)" />
    Meta Tag:   <meta property="og:image" content="" />
    Meta Tag:   <meta property="og:video" content="" />
    Meta Tag:   <meta property="og:video:width" content="420" />
    Meta Tag:   <meta property="og:video:height" content="237" />
    Meta Tag:   <meta property="og:video:type" content="application/x-shockwave-flash" />
    Meta Tag:   <meta property="og:site_name" content="SPlayTV Video Platform" />

When sharing this video - a Thumbnail with description etc is posted on the wall. But when I try to play the video - there's only an empty box saying "download file"...

Any suggestions?


You need to use flash for the video to be playable in the newsfeed. At the moment, your code is pointing to the file, but it does not use a player to play the video, so the user is prompted to download the video instead.
