Video extension for Magento

Video Module Box

Another highly required thing for Magento – a Video extension. Despite it’s quite straightforward to create an attribute and use it, many people would like to see this functionality “out-of-box”. We decided to explore this possibility and start development of a video module. What we have now is a very simple code that adds a tab in the product configuration interface and allows to enter video embed-code. We’d like you, Magento users to contribute your ideas and needs and help us create a useful and poweful module.

The development has been started basing on this thread: http://www.magentocommerce.com/boards/viewthread/1432/
