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 code that is designed to work on eBay until eBay's June 2017 Ban on Active Content.
16 Apr 2017 - In June 2017, eBay will change the requirements for videos, and you may need to again change your video code. As eBay releases their new specs, 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. Please check back. In the meantime, eBay will be alerting sellers whose listings contain active content. Rest assured that even though these videos are Active Content, you can continue to use them until the June deadline, at which point they will simply cease to function. There are no dire consequences. You will then have a few months to remove them and change to eBay's method.
26 Apr 2017 - One workaround for those who wish to continue using YouTube videos until eBay has a solution, is to directly link to the video. The direct link we provide in the slot above will open the video by itself in a new window without distracting promotions.
09 May 2107 - eBay updated their link policy to allow a direct link to a YouTube video, as created by this tool. In a staff post on 20 Apr 2017, eBay indicated their own YouTube solution may not be ready by June. The link created by this tool may be your best option for displaying YouTube videos during the period that eBay is still working on their own solution.
27 May 2107 - For those of you who are tired of waiting on eBay, we have created a new eBay-compliant video "thumbnail" that is mobile friendly and that looks just like the real thing with a real cover image and start button. Use this pseudo-video as a clickable placeholder in your listings for either YouTube or Vimeo videos. When clicked, the real video will open in a new page in full-screen mode, compliant with eBay Links Policy.
Upload Video to YouTube, and then
Choose which source to use:
1 Video number
2 Video URL address
3 "Share" link
4 "Embed code"
