Hi all,
I have a video that I'd like to put on my homepage. I might decide to move it to an information page but for now, I want it on the homepage. My question is twofold. First would it be better to embed the video from YouTube or upload it to the site. Second what would be the best way to go about this. I edited the home.tpl file but wonder if that is the best way. You can see my work in progress here.

I don't see an html module in the list of modules. How can I add it? Do you have a suggestion on the marketplace?

Try with Welcome module or with this extension

But why you don`t install/upgrade to 2.3.0.2 ? I don`t see to have any products on that url.

Well, I started out playing with OC3, but wanted a "simple cart." I didn't want affiliates or people registering accounts and things like that. It was suggested that I go with 1.5.6.5_rc so I've been playing with it. There are no products configured yet. Wanted to get the look and feel right first. That's why it's in a subfolder. I may actually go back and play with OC3 again since I've learned a little more how it all works. Thanks for your help.

Much better to embed the Youtube code IMO. I would first visit this website though and make the code responsive:

I would also avoid using either the welcome message extension or any HTML extension. The editor often strips out parts of the code and breaks it. I would recommend an extension like this one as it allows you to turn off the HTML editor and embed code directly.

My preferred OC is 1.5.6.5 with VQMOD 2.6.1 and the excellent OC Bootstrap Pro theme. I've found that setup to be very powerful and very flexible.
