What are we supposed to do with active content and youtube videos? None of the codes that I have received will work. Does anyone have more knowledge about this?

 

 

FRONT EBAY ACTIVE CONTENT PAGE DOSE NOT WORK WITH YOUTUBE:

 

http://pages.ebay.co...deoBestPractice

 

<video width="320" height="240">

      <source src="movie.mp4" type="video/mp4">
      <p>Here is a video of the product</p>
    </video>

 

 

 

AND THIS ONE THAT FROOITION POINTED US TO:

WORKS BUT IS STILL CONSIDERED ACTIVE CONTENT

 

<!-- BEGIN VIDEO -->
<div style="position:relative; text-align:center; margin:auto; width:100%; max-width:600px;">
<div style="width:100%; padding-top:75%;">
<div style="position:absolute; left:0; right:0; top:0; bottom:0; margin:auto;">
<object width="100%" height="100%" type="text/html" allowfullscreen="true" data="http://www.youtube.c...iv></div></div>
<!-- END VIDEO -->

The "video" tag eBay provides are HTML5 syntax and are allowed by eBay, whereas the "object" tag can contain active content just as you pointed out.

 

To add videos to your listings you'll need to use the "video" tags, and link those videos to a video host that supports HTML5. I believe Vimeo has an HTML5 player, but I haven't tested it out myself.

 

For more information, see:

https://join.vimeo.com/video-hosting/

 

and:

https://vimeo.com/bl...ew-html5-player

 

EDIT: Their HTML5 player should definitely be working at this point since their article regarding the beta test was written in 2010.  ;)
