Periscope Embeds on the web

A Periscope embed brings the best live video from Periscope into your article or website. A broadcast is embedded with Tweet Embeds and Embedded Timelines, and a broadcaster profile is embedded with the On Air Button.

To start embedding Tweets with Periscope broadcasts, visit and paste in a Tweet permalink or Tweet timeline URL.

Tweet Embeds

Everywhere on the web a Tweet can go, a Periscope can go, too!

When embedding a Tweet with a link to a Periscope broadcast, the full broadcast video is included. The Periscope broadcast will update in real-time when the broadcast is live, including the number of live viewers. When the broadcast has ended, visitors can replay the broadcast, see the total number of viewers, and visit for the full experience with hearts, comments, and more from the broadcaster.

Embedding a Periscope broadcast from a Tweet works the same way as embedding a Tweet. Publishers may copy-and-paste embedded Tweet markup generated on a Tweet detail page or via, pass a URL to a supporting CMS, or add a Tweet to the page using a JavaScript factory function. For more detail, visit Periscope Embeds and Embedded Tweets on Twitter‘s documentation for Twitter for Websites.

Embedded Timeline

An embedded timeline displays Tweets from a specific Twitter user, a list of Twitter users, a search result, or a curated collection of Tweets. A full Periscope broadcast will appear for Tweets with links to a Periscope broadcast.

Share the latest Periscope broadcasts published to a Twitter account with an embedded search timeline. The filter:periscope search operator will restrict search results to recent Tweets containing a link to a Periscope broadcast.

For more detail, visit Embedded Timelines on Twitter‘s documentation for Twitter for Websites.

On Air Button

The On Air Button lets you embed Periscope broadcaster profiles anywhere on the web.

The button displays a broadcaster’s live status and username, and will change automatically to indicate when the broadcaster goes live!

Clicking the widget will open a new window showing the broadcaster’s profile on If the broadcaster is live when visiting the page, their broadcast will automatically start playing!
