Previews are standalone HTML pages that are used to display a certain Bits on the Run player. Previews are useful for quickly sending out certain videos to friends or clients without having to embed a player in your website. For example, you could email a preview link to your client if you need approval on a final edit.
Previews are requested with the key of the video/channel and the key of the player used to display the video/channel.
Here is an example preview:
Note all preview pages contain so-called OpenGraph headers. This ensures that, when sharing a preview page on Facebook, the video itself is actually appearing on your wall.
The domain name used for requesting a preview will be propagated in the return. This means the link to the player embed code inside the preview will contain that same domain name and not content.bitsontherun.com.
