How do I add videos to a product?

MyVideoly makes adding videos to your store easy.

You can add videos in your products library or by clicking into a product ('product card').

In case you're working with a long list of SKU/EANs, check out the MyVideoly multi-add tool guide. 

1. Adding videos in the products library (via the multi-add tool)

Search for one or more products in the search bar. There are two ways to do this:

  • Paste in multiple product SKUs or EANs in the search bar (separated by a space, comma or semicolon).
  • Search by product title (one by one) and select products as you perform multiple searches. Products will stay selected until you untick them.

Add videos by

  • Clicking ‘+Add video’ at the top of your products list
  • Paste in the YouTube URL of the video you’d like to add
  • Assign a genre and language (*available languages in the drop-down menu are those that have been set for your shop)
  • If you’d like to add multiple videos to your products, click ‘add another video’ 

2. Adding videos in the product card

In the products library, search for a product in the product bar (by title or SKU/EAN) and click into it. This is what we call, the product card.

  • Click the ‘+Add’ in the top right corner
  • Paste in the YouTube URL of the video you’d like to add
  • Assign a genre and language (*available languages in the drop-down menu are those that have been set for your shop)
  • If you’d like to add multiple videos to your products, click ‘add another video’

💡Can't find a product in your library? 

Only published products visited at least once appear in MyVideoly. Recently published products may not have seen traffic yet. Simply visit the product in your store and refresh your MyVideoly window. The product should now appear in your products library and you can work with the product card. 


💡We recommend adding a genre to videos, as this helps set your site visitors’ expectations about the video they are about to watch. Genre labels will always appear in your store's default language. We have eight genres to pick from:

  • Presentation
  • How-to
  • Review
  • Specs
  • Unboxing
  • Comparison
  • Brand
  • Inspiration

A note on manually added videos

💡Manually added videos will feature a 'circled plus' in the video thumbnail. We always ensure  that only  embeddable videos that are available on YouTube are displayed in the widget. We also perform this check on videos that you manually add via MyVideoly.

💡If a video you have added cannot be embedded, or is not available on YouTube, you will see a notification of this in a green thumbnail (see example to the right)

💡You can preview changes by clicking on ''Open in the store''.
