eBay does not let you use it!
Here is how to embed your sales video on eBay!
When Youtube started using the iframe tag in their HTML markup language to embed Youtube Videos into websites it really screwed up embedding into eBay! Google got rid of the old code and so most people have no clue any longer.
Since eBay doesn't allow the usage of the iframe tag, we must go back to the old embed object code, which is very easy if you have some basic knowledge of HTML.
Below is a Generic Youtube Embed Video Code to use in eBay auction's. To make this work just do two simple things as explained here.
Here is the old code to use on eBay. Insert this code in the auction HTML section tab.
<object height="385" width="640"><param
allowfullscreen="true" height="385" width="640"></object></span></strong></p>
Replace XXXXXXXXXXX with the 11 character code of your
Youtube video channel embed code .
For example, in the following web address, we would use the 11 characters after the "=" sign to replace XXXXXXXXXXX - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZG5W7s98aKo
Plug those 11 characters (ZG5W7s98aKo) in place of the XXXXXXXXXXX in 2 locations in the above code and you are in like flint!
I hope this helps, since just a simple video on Youtube can help many more people find your auction on eBay.
Another great idea is to use to, use Picassa to upload your photos of your Auction Items as well.
Youtube and Picassa are owned by Google, so adding content to both websites can only increase traffic to your eBay Auctions and that will increase bids and/or sales.
Now get to it and watch your eBay sales go up, up, and away!
