Sorry if this is the wrong place to post this but I was unsure where to post it.

I am thinking of buying a video and wondered if it can be placed in the template to show in the listing, and automatically play when people go into the listing

Thanks
Steve

Howdy Steve,

You can add the video into the listing, if you’re using YouTube to host it then you’ll want to use the “old embed code” option so that it works on eBay.

As for auto playing it, personally I’d find that annoying, so would suggest just letting the customer click play if and when appropriate.

I wonder what your thoughts are on it and if you think like the auther does that it will improve positive feedback

Thanks

Howdy Steve,

Not seen something like that before, like it if I’m honest.

If it’s not too dear it’s gotta be worth a punt to see if it makes a difference.

Hi Matt/ Steve

Its a mailshot for £17.95 from info@bayvids.com or visit http://www.bayvids.com.

I think its a spam email a si have never signed up to these.
Matt i have sent over the email for you to look at.
You could knock this up in a couple of hours yourself, it would annoy the crap out of me if i saw this on a site.
Any auto video or music with some comic talking get the close button from me.

Let me know how you get on Steve

Wow your right Dale, I did find that Video really really annoying!

I love the idea and concept and know Matt has spoken about this before, but for me the execution on this video is way of the mark and like you said I would instantly close it too.

As for how people have been emailed these, I think it’s safe to assume there is no partnership with eBay which means some other methods have been used here.
