Beautiful photos increase interest in products and positively affect sales, but video is king. That's why we added a video gallery to our products so our customers can sell more effectively and present their offer more interestingly.

In the admin panel we select Configuration->Additional applications->Product Video Gallery
We activate the gallery
We go to the product edit to the Video tab.
We add movies and save
If we want to change the configuration of the gallery size, we can change it in the Photo Configuration.
Up to 3 short video clips can be added to each product. The videos appear instead of the main photo on the product card. It is best to add 2-3 movies, then they will be shown one after the other.
It is best to adjust the size of the movies to the size specified in the photo configuration (Configuration->Module configuration->Photo configuration->Products->Card).
The maximum size is 10MB and the time is 15s. It is recommended to add movies for 5s. You can add a movie one second longer than the time in the configuration, then the additional second will be used for a smooth transition between movies.
Before adding the movie, it should be compressed, e.g. using Freeconvert
Movies should be without sound.
SEO and optimization
Video on the product card is not only a presentation, but also a longer time for customers on the page, greater engagement and, consequently, better parameters for positioning. The videos are short, compressed and loaded one after the other, so the system displays the page faster. By default, videos on many mobile devices have the option of automatic playback turned off (iOS, iPhone, iPad, etc.), but thanks to the use of special technology compliant with the requirements of mobile device manufacturers, videos from the gallery start automatically when entering the product card. This is one of the reasons why the videos have no sound.
The purpose of the video gallery is to replace the main photo with a video presentation. Regardless of this function, longer video films can be added to the store description, e.g. from YouTube.
Video materials in the store are the future. They say a picture is worth a thousand words, but video tells the whole story. That's why we've added a new feature to the online store: video banners. For free. As standard. For everyone.
We have added to the SOTESHOP 8 online store standard a new graphic called Futura. It references a futuristic vision of the future, which is very close. It uses dark background colors and bright texts. The graphic is available for free to all stores in the SOTESHOP 8 version.
