Video in place of images at products pages

Is there a way to have a video show up in the main products slider instead of images? My product consists of video only and without the video embedded in main products slider causes confusion for new site visitors. Viewing from smartphone, they never scrolll down far enough to see the embedded video because its so far down the page.

Nice store Anthony :) 

Here's a simple way to set a video as your product image.

1. In your admin - select a product you would like to add a video to.
2. Hover over a product image you would like to add your youtube video to.
3. Select "Edit Alt Text" 
4. Paste your Youtube embed link in the dialog box.
5. Save your changes!

I hope that works for you, please let me know!

Cheers,
​Ross

It does work. Make sure you are using the embed code, and not just the link to the video.

Nicole, I couldn't find any video samples on your product pages...can you point me to a sample. I'm interested in doing this on our product pages. Thanks!

Hi,

I have minimal theme and it doesn't work. I use the embed code with this website: http://embedresponsively.com/

Someone can help me?

Hi Nicole and Ross,

I have been going through all of the tips and advice on this ... And your solution looks the best ... But I have not been able to crack it.

I have definitely copied the embed link, but it's still not working.

This is the page I would like to change - so the video becomes one of the product pictures (instead of being on the right). I would really appreciate any help or tips on how to fix this.
