Hi guys,

I’m looking to embed a video (YouTube, Vimeo, Screenr, etc.) into my item description but it doesn’t seem to like those iframe tags. Is it possible at all?

I’m sure I’ve seen it done before – any & all help is appreciated.

Cheers!

I don’t think it’s possible (if you could embed an iframe you could embed anything, and that’d create trouble).

I think what people generally do is insert a screenshot of a video that links to the video itself. I’ve never seen a video actually embedded in an item description myself – though it’d be great if we could!

Yeah maybe that’s what I’ve seen before.

Cheers, Chris!
