Display hosted videos, YouTube videos and pictures in your slideshows

We started the month of April with the pre-release of our rich media slideshow

Simply put, a rich media slideshow is nothing else than a slideshow mixing videos and pictures seamlessly. In its simplest form you can attach videos or photos, or both to your articles, blogs, events or products with the ease of use of our familiar “drag and drop” photo selection tool.

Videos can either be files uploaded to the website (mp4 or flv format), or videos hosted by YouTube. 

This is a huge step forward for this content management system and for what it allows you to do. With proper use of videos you can enhance your website with rich content, lengthen the average time visitors spend on your site, increase traffic, and deliver more relevant content to your targeted audience. We recommend loading your videos to YouTube so that you can benefit from its bandwidth and its exposure. In addition, content properly posted to YouYube will bring in new traffic to your site from youtube itself. That is a great (free) benefit that you cannot ignore.

Rich media, as we call it, is a great way to promote your products or services, and to increase traffic to your site.

So, keep an eye out for us, and stay tuned as we deploy this feature to everyone in the coming weeks.
