Reproduce Video From OpenGraph Preview - Type "text/html"

I'm receiving an URL from a Twitter video and I'm not able to embed the video and reproduce it.

I'm developing a web site that shows social media elements. On Twitter, I process the tweets I get from the API and, if I find a link, I check it out with OpenGraph. In some cases, the link I get is from another tweet, and that tweet has a video. I'm able to get the URL from that video, but HTML5 Tag won't play it.

I get this URL from Twitter:

With that, I get this JSON from OpenGraph:

  "type": "video",
  "url": "",
  "title": "La Vida Moderna on Twitter",
  "image": {
  "url": ""
  "description": "“SHOW ME THE BILLETS\n\n @_rafamata_ → ”",
  "site_name": "Twitter",
  "video": {
    "url": "",
    "secure_url": "",
    "type": "text/html",
    "width": "1200",
    "height": "675"

With the URL from video.url I'm trying this on my code:

<video width="100%" height="100%" style="background-color:#000000" autoplay muted loop>
    <source src="" type="video/mp4">

But video won't load. I've tried changing "type" attribute using the received ("text/html") and all the accepted type, but same result.



If you look at the source code of that video, you'll see that it isn't a video at all. Instead, it is an HTML page which loads some JavaScript in order to display the video.

You could put it in an iframe - for example:

<iframe src=""></iframe>

That will embed the video for playback on your site.
