Hi! New to Shopify and still setting up my store. After setting up 50+ products and producing 6 second videos in mp4 format and uploading to each product page because it's an option through Shopify, I'm now finding that the videos don't show anywhere on the product page. Then with further research I'm learning that I have to actually use programming code to actually insert videos from YouTube (after I upload all 50+ videos to a newly created Youtube channel). Am I in the twilight zone where a super popular shopping app isn't able to host and convert short videos uploaded to its product pages? Any advice for the most simplest and effective way of getting my videos on the product page would be helpful. And does anyone know if Shopify will be fixing this major flaw in their system?
