    On a e-commerce website, using videos for advertising and direction of using products not only helps customers understand clearly about products, but also builds the trust of customers on those products and your website. In fact, this is an amazing feature for any Magento-based websites that allows admin to add videos for products shown on product details page.

    As an ecommerce outsourcing company with more than six years of experiences, We have received lots of inquiries for videos placement on product details page presently. So, we realized that we should develop an extension to allow a lot of magento websites to easily install and use this great feature. With Product video extension, admin can add videos for the products they want and the videos will be shown on the product details page, which will help the customers to have the most visualized look about the products and other information.
