How do I add embed sharing to JW Player WordPress plugin? (20 posts)

    I have been having trouble with this problem for a while now. I am using a WordPress theme called deTube wich is compatible with the JW Player. I have a Premium License for it.

    The problem is, I cannot seem to add the embed sharing option for the JW Player. I have read every documentation that is provided by LongTail, and I still cannot get it to work.

    Just to be really clear the embed sharing option basically is the option to share your custom video player on other websites and have it play in your JW Player custom skin.

    I have even contacted LongTail support, but they said this is not an option yet for WordPress, even though I have seen multiple sites have this option while using WordPress as their CMS.

    So if anyone could help I would be highly appreciative and very thankful.

    My website is viralcentro.com

    If you are using the plugin, only the link can be set. Sharing.code has to be set manually. You would need to embed the player using static embed code in this case.

    I doubt the original poster is still reading this thread, considering that they posted the original question 10 months ago.

    It is not possible yet to add the embed code into the sharing option in the WP plugin yet.

    @Seyntjim Try this

    sharing: {
    code: '<?php echo get_post_meta($post->ID, 'new_meta_box', true); ?>',
    link: 'http://example.com/page/12345/'
    }

    That would work fine. It just won't work with the shortcode for the plugin.

    Yes, we are aware of the missing functionality and are planning on addressing these shortcomings in a future version of the plugin.

    So is there no way to get around this until they release the next plugin? The embed code feature is something we really need as well.
