By David Cohen Comment

EmbedVideoVideo is red-hot on Facebook, and the social network revealed its embedded video player for non-Facebook websites at its F8 global developers conference in San Francisco this week.

Facebook described its new embedded video player in a post in its developer blog:

A new full-bleed, responsive and interactive video player to embed Facebook videos on your site. The player features controls like play/pause, HD/SD toggle and full-screen mode, and also lets people like or share the video right from the player.

The social network also hinted at future plans for video in a Facebook Media blog post:

Over the coming months, we’re redesigning the video upload flow for pages with new control and customization features including expiration dates, audience restrictions and more.
