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

Defines the canonical URL of a video that complements the content of the page. This URL is used when the page is shared on social networks, enabling platforms to embed the specified video.

Code Examples

<meta property="og:video:url" content="https://www.example.com/path/to/video.mp4" />
An absolute HTTPS URL pointing to a publicly accessible video file, ensuring good embedding practices.
<meta property="og:video:url" content="https://youtu.be/dQw4w9WgXcQ" />
Using a URL from a well-known video hosting service, enhancing reliability and load times when shared.
<meta property="og:video:url" content="/path/to/video.mp4" />
A relative URL that will not resolve correctly when the content is shared and embedded on social platforms.
<meta property="og:video:url" content="https://www.example.com/video?auth=123" />
A URL that requires authentication or has restricted access will likely fail to embed the video on social platforms.


  • Use Absolute URLs
    Always specify the video URL as an absolute path, including the protocol (http or https) to ensure the video is correctly embedded on social platforms.
  • Prefer HTTPS
    Using HTTPS for your video URL enhances security and is preferred by most social platforms, potentially improving shareability.
  • Consider Video Hosting Services
    Hosting your video on reputable platforms like YouTube or Vimeo and using the video URL from these services can improve load times and reliability on social platforms.
  • Verify Video Accessibility
    Ensure that the video pointed to by the URL is publicly accessible and does not require authentication for viewing. Private or restricted videos will not be embedded.
