Example of Old Embed Code for Youtube Video Use on Ebay

There are many times that we use video in our eBay listings, but since YouTube went away from the old embed code and to the new iframe settings we have not been able to use them. But with the code below, we are able to use them to put videos in again.

Basically you need to paste this code into your eBay listing in the HTML version of the listing.

If your video URL is

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SaBv4QsIsjI

then you can simply copy the video id (everything after /watch?v=) and replace the XXXXXXXXXXX with that.

<p align=”center”><object width=”640″ height=”385″><param name=”movie” value=”http://www.youtube.com/v/XXXXXXXXXXX?fs=1&amp;hl=en_US” /><param name=”allowFullScreen” value=”true” /><param name=”allowscriptaccess” value=”always” /><embed src=”http://www.youtube.com/v/XXXXXXXXXXX?fs=1&amp;hl=en_US” type=”application/x-shockwave-flash” allowscriptaccess=”always” allowfullscreen=”allowfullscreen” height=”385″ width=”640″ /></object></p>

So the new code should read as follows;

<p align=”center”><object width=”640″ height=”385″><param name=”movie” value=”http://www.youtube.com/v/SaBv4QsIsjI?fs=1&amp;hl=en_US” /><param name=”allowFullScreen” value=”true” /><param name=”allowscriptaccess” value=”always” /><embed src=”http://www.youtube.com/v/SaBv4QsIsjI?fs=1&amp;hl=en_US” type=”application/x-shockwave-flash” allowscriptaccess=”always” allowfullscreen=”allowfullscreen” height=”385″ width=”640″ /></object></p>

And the video will show up looking like this in eBay;
