    Yes. The way you do it depends on a number of things - eg: are your videos hosted on YOUR server, or on somewhere like Vimeo or YouTube.

    In the case of a 3rd-party server (youtube) they will allow you to grab a "share" code (usually in an iframe) that you just paste into the product description's raw HTML.

    IF you host the material on your server, you may need a player to play them on your site. You can use external players, embedding the codecs and other param info into an <object> tag.

    In fact, if you see my SIGNATURE LINK to SBX, you will see that we are doing just what you ask. We use a service called streamingvideoprovider, and they have some very sophisticated video tools - as you will see:

    Also, look at this DEV SITE we are busy with: http://pallettegallery.co.uk/index.p...ndex&cPath=1_2

    Thanks for the info. I actually have embeded video's on my site, hoever not in the product listings themselves, I couldn't see to get it to work. And I was hoping I could use a video/3d image that can rotate arounf the item to give a full 360 view of it for the customer.

    However I don't like the fact that i would have to take 18-32 picutres of each item for that set up where with a video I can just spin the items around and video it.

    Some video editors allow you to snapshot each frame. In a video file, the FPS is usually 30 (ie: 30 Frames Per Second)
