     Videos are always useful, particularly if you want to display information. It provides maximum details in less time. In an e-commerce store, customers are interested to collect all the information about a product before they buy the product. It's a good idea to upload a video to product page where you provide complete information about the product such as what the product is about, how to use the product, features of the product etc. This article explains how you can add YouTube video to product pages in Magento.


 
				1.Create “video” attribute selecting input as text. Add it to appropriate attribute set and reindex your data.
2.Go to the following file.
 app/design/frontend/yourpackage/yourtheme/template/catalog/product/view.phtml
3.Find the following code in the above file. This code displays the Product name.

productAttribute($_product, $_product->getName(), 'name') ?>

4.Insert the following code to add the video under the product name. getVideo()): ?> Now you just have to paste the video UID (Unique Identifier) into the video attribute field to display the video. For example, xbL0ab22WEc is the UID in https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xbL0ab22WEc.
