Video is definiately a growth area in eCommerce. Not to be left behind we have been experimenting with video for the Hello Baby Online Baby shop.
Here is the video uploaded to YouTube. I like the idea of uploading to YouTube because of the syndication potential. However the compression seems to have negatively affected the quality of the video
Here is the same video uploaded to Metacafe
Both video sharing services show alternative videos when the video has played which is a bit annoying as I don’t want other people being driven off my site of listing by other videos
I have also experimented with uploading the video to Vzaar
Looks that Vzaar comes out top in terms of video quality. It also doesn’t have the annoying ‘other videos’ option at the end…..
