Adding Facebook meta data to posts with Blubrry
« on: November 12, 2013, 09:53:33 am »
I have been looking for a way to get my player to show up in Facebook posts. In order for this to work the page would need to declare metadata in the header, which would only be available to Blubrry.

As a for instance, you can see soundcloud posts audio files to facebook by adding 5 tags to the header:

Currently I use a plugin to display OG Data but since it does not have access to Blubrry and does not know what the podcast file is, it cannot add this information to the header.

My request is that Blubrry adds a toggle-able function that allows you to turn OG:Video data on/off.
  • OG:Video would be the default player from whichever blubrry installation you are using with the appended MP3 file to it so it would load
  • OG:video:secure_URL would either be the trackign redirect of the direct link to the file
  • OG:Height and OG:Width could be whatever the player default is set to, or custom sizes for facebook
  • OG:video:type" would be the valid mimetype for whatever the file enclosure would be

Do you have Facebook documentation on this? Last time we spent time developing a solution for Facebook, a month before we released it they changed the rules on how to post media on facebook and rendered our work worthless. So I would rather not spend our development cycles on something that is not documented by Facebook.

Just waiting for someone to explain how we can implement. At the moment there is no offical documented api that I could find.

I think you have to create an application on Facebook. Here's the code inserted by Podomatic in a page of mine that, I think, allow the player to be embed directly in FB (from the following page http://mateo360.podomatic.com/entry/2014-03-12T03_34_15-07_00 ) :

<meta content='216756441679292' property='fb:app_id' />
<meta content='podomatic:podcast_episode' property='og:type' />
<meta content='http://mateo360.podomatic.com/entry/2014-03-12T03_34_15-07_00' property='og:url' />
<meta content='http://assets.podomatic.net/ts/9d/de/64/mateo360/200x200-279x279+48+0_9352134.jpg' property='og:image' />
<meta content='PodOmatic' property='og:site_name' />
<meta content='application/x-shockwave-flash' property='og:video:type' />
<meta content='393' property='og:video:width' />
<meta content='93' property='og:video:height' />
<meta content='https://mateo360.podomatic.com/swf/joeplayer_v20a.swf?facebook=false&amp;minicast=false&amp;jsonLocation=http%3A%2F%2Fmateo360.podomatic.com%2Fentry%2Fembed_params%2F2014-03-12T03_34_15-07_00%3Fheight%3D93%26amp%3Bwidth%3D393' property='og:video' />

Looks like it uses flash. Will have to see if we can have a JavaScript based player or just HTML5 player on Facebook as an alternative, flash doesn't work on mobile apps and most folks I know consume Facebook from the apps.

Does a player appear from the Facebook mobile apps for the podomatic app?
