About Video Links

Video Links is an extraordinary-in-its-simplicity plugin, enabling you to sell your products even more effectively. Whether you’re adding a demonstration, testimonial or supporting material, you are improving the shop’s quality and User Experience. Video Links enables your customers to trigger video clips by clicking on the product images on a page. You can embed videos from external sources (such as Youtube, Vimeo, and QuickTime videos), so you’ll save potential bandwidth costs, and the videos will load and autoplay in a PrettyPhoto lightbox.
