How can I make my JW videos embeddable and Facebook share-able?

I'm hosting videos on Amazon Cloudfront, and playing them in the JW player on my Wordpress site. I would like to make these videos embeddable, my main interest being to make them share-able on Facebook (which I realize is probably its own ball of wax).

I've found scattered documentation, but nothing that really thoroughly tackles this problem head-on, which, it seems to me, must be common: Wordpress, JW Player, Facebook sharing.

I'm not afraid of a little code, but I do need more direction than I have been able to find, and that includes the Facebook API documentation.

This page describes the header tags you need to add to your site. You apparently also need to manually request that your videos are embeddable.

Response by poster: I'm aware of that page... that's what I meant above by the Facebook API documentation. And Facebook has approved my request.

The problem is more complicated than just inserting the recommended tags. When I do so, the video itself is stripped out of the wordpress post.
