You can now embed Youtube links into the pages of your Shapeways shop so you can show a video of your product in use, an animation, assembly instructions or a simple rotation of the product to help communicate your designs. Put a link on your Youtube page back to your shop to drive sales. Easy.
In the Shapeways galleries you will see a play icon on all models that
have an embedded video. On your page you will have a 630x400 video
display. With enough uptake and positive feedback from the Shapeways
community we may try and expand on this in the future to have the
option of having the video as the main image as well as embedded in the
gallery pages as preview images.
Great news! Although I'm on vacation, I immediately adopted the feature for all my products. Great addition
Once I get back I want to remake all my video's with my new, better camera to get a more professional look, and I'm quite motivated by the embedding.
I see that you've got enters working for the model descriptions. That's great also.
I don't think I would use any video as a main image (for the sake of resolution and never getting the right shot as default image) but I love the addition as is.
As a service and to make sure it works correctly, I have been adding for some of you the YouTube links you had in your product page as embedded video. Should you not like this do let me know and I will remove them again.
