Open Graph Meta Tags


Learn how to use the og:video meta tag to improve your site.

Defines the URL to a video file or video page that complements the content of the web page. When shared on social media platforms, this video may be displayed as part of the preview.

Code Examples

<meta property="og:video" content="https://example.com/path/to/video.mp4" />
Specifies an absolute URL to a video file, ensuring it can be properly accessed and displayed when shared.
<meta property="og:video" content="https://example.com/page-with-video-embed" />
Specifies an absolute URL to a webpage that hosts a video, allowing a preview that includes the video to be generated when shared.
<meta property="og:video" content="/path/to/video.mp4" />
A relative URL that may not properly resolve when the webpage is shared on social media, potentially leading to a missing video preview.
<meta property="og:video" content="https://example.com/video-format-not-supported" />
Specifies a URL to a video in a format not widely supported by social media platforms, potentially leading to playback issues.


  • Use Absolute URLs
    Always specify the video URL as an absolute path to ensure it is correctly fetched by social media platforms when the webpage is shared.
  • Mind the Aspect Ratio
    Choose videos with aspect ratios that are naturally supported by most social media platforms (e.g., 16:9) to ensure the video displays properly without unintended cropping or letterboxing.
