Learn how to use the twitter:player:stream meta tag to improve your site.

Defines the URL to a raw video or audio stream that Twitter will use in its card player when sharing content. It is intended for integration with Twitter cards, specifically for videos or podcasts shared via tweets.

Code Examples

<meta property="twitter:player:stream" content="https://example.com/video/stream.m3u8" />
Uses HTTPS for secure delivery and an adaptive streaming format (HLS) for optimal experience.
<meta property="twitter:player:stream" content="https://example.com/podcast/stream.mp3" />
A direct link to an MP3 audio stream, ensuring straightforward compatibility.
<meta property="twitter:player:stream" content="http://example.com/video/stream.m3u8" />
Lacks HTTPS, making the stream unsecured and potentially blocked by Twitter.
<meta property="twitter:player:stream" content="https://example.com/video/stream.avi" />
Uses an incompatible file format (AVI) that Twitter's player likely won't support.


  • Secure Your Stream
    Always use HTTPS for your stream URL to ensure user data is protected and to adhere to Twitter's security policies.
  • Optimize Streaming Quality
    For a better user experience, use adaptive streaming protocols (like HLS) that adjust to the user's bandwidth, providing smooth playback without buffering.
  • Check Compatibility
    Ensure the stream format is compatible with Twitter's player. Typically, H.264 video codec with AAC audio codec in an MP4 container works best across all platforms.
  • Avoid Autoplay With Sound
    Consider setting your video or audio stream to start without sound if autoplaying, as this follows best practices for user experience and accessibility.
