Upload Video to YouTube, and then
Choose which source to use:

1 Copy video number
2 or copy entire URL from top of browser
3 or Copy the single line from "Share this video" slot
4 or Copy code from the "Embed" block
You can now paste any one of these codes in the single box below:
  1 Video number
  2 Video URL address
  3 "Share" link
  4 "Embed code"
Then click the "Make eBay Code" button below:

We are making some changes. The code for "adaptive" sizing will be a little bit longer than the fixed-size codes because it will automatically resize the video for mobile or desktop.


Format the video block:


Copy above code for use on eBay

Play YouTube or Vimeo videos within eBay listings:

eBay does not accept <iframe> video code directly from YouTube or Vimeo, so the code must be modified to run on eBay. This tool produces 2016 code that is designed to work on eBay.

In mid 2017, eBay will change the requirements for videos, and you may need to again change your video code. As the mid 2017 deadline draws near, we will either update this tool or retire the tool and provide information on how to add videos to eBay in the new 2017 format.

Code Formats:
  1. Mobile Friendly Object code is a compact format that should work on most (but not all) devices. The benefit of this code is that it will survive eBay's Quick Lister and wysiwyg editors.
  2. Scripted iFrame code is designed to work in all targeted devices, but it can not be used in eBay's QuickLister and will not survive a wysiwyg editor. After insertion in the HTML tab of eBay's Advanced description editor, Seller Hub editor, or Turbo Lister editor, switching tabs would destroy the code. So use the popup preview to see the results rather than switching back to the Standard tab on eBay's wysiwyg editor.
  3. Old Flash Embed code is no longer supported by YouTube (although Firefox may internally convert it to a displayable iframe format). This flash format is supplied for other players and is not recommended for YouTube videos.
  4. Original iFrame code won't work on eBay, but is provided here if you need to convert back to iframe code for your own website.
