14.2. How do I add a You Tube video to my listing?

You tube's embed code inserts the video into an iframe which eBay does not allow.

You can still embed You Tube videos into your listing but you will need to remove the iframe.

On You Tube:
1. Click on the Share button under the video
2. Copy the 11 digit code for the video, it will be the last 11 characters of the url shown
3. Replace XXXXXXXXXXX in the code below with the 11 character code of your Youtube Video. Note there are two places you have to do this.

<p align="center"> <object height="385" width="640"><param name="movie" value="http://www.youtube.com/v/XXXXXXXXXXX?fs=1&amp;hl=en_US"><param name="allowFullScreen" value="true"><param name="allowscriptaccess" value="always"> <embed src="http://www.youtube.com/v/XXXXXXXXXXX?fs=1&amp;hl=en_US" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" allowscriptaccess="always" allowfullscreen="true" height="385" width="640"></object></span></strong></p>

4. Copy the code above with your you tube video number in it and use this code to add the video to your listing.

On the Listing Generator page in SSB:

Save your listing and then go to the Saved Listing page and preview your listing from the Saved Listing page and you will see the video.
