Posting videos to Shopify

Modified on Thu, 16 Aug 2018 at 11:36 AM

Shopify has no direct support for video , but several themes handle videos by using images ALT tag. 

If image alt consists of Youtub/Vimeo/Valigara embed URL, image is replaced by the video player. 

In your Shopify account settings page in Valigara enable "Send videos as images" option.

Valigara will send videos thumbnails as images, with ALT = embed URL of the video

Video is placed last after product images.

Prefix and Suffix fields allow to make required changes in the URL sent to Shopify. 

When system creates alt for image its the url of video (f.i. )

If prefix or suffix are defined (f.i. some_prefix and some_suffix), 

the resulting alt value sent to Shopify is "some_prefix"
