Product Gallery, Videos & SEO
The integration with the WooCommerce single product page lets you configure the main gallery area independently of the thumbnail slider. The default options should cover most requirements.
A useful option is to specify the aspect ratio of the images. This is great when a client has provided a series of product images that are a mixture of landscape and portrait formats.
To add videos to your WooCommerce product galleries…
Make sure you enable Power Slider’s WooCommerce gallery integration in Settings > Power Slider. Make sure you enable Video Gallery Media and the Schema Object too.
Save those settings, then go to your Media Library and upload an image that represents the video you want to show – the video’s cover image. This can be a totally different aspect ratio to the actual video – you’ll probably want a square aspect ratio cover image for the gallery, even if the video is 16:9 widescreen.
Select your image in the Media Library and you’ll see some new settings on the side:
All three of these are needed in order to create the VideoObject schema that Google picks up. Make sure the date is in the correct format too.
Save the image, then edit your product and add the image to its product gallery as normal:
That’s it – view your product and you should see that the video is playable now.
Test the Structured Data / Schema
It’s a good idea to check that you’re happy with the schema that’s been embedded before Google (re)indexes the page.
Enter your product’s URL and check that the VideoObject schema is picked up correctly

Fixed a typo on the settings page.
Added a couple of new action hooks that fire before and after the frontend Glide assets are enqueued.
Small fix to the WooCommerce product gallery integration. Better handling of when the customer goes from viewing a product variation, to viewing the product with no variation selected. We now default fall-back to the product's primary image properly.

Added a new option to hide the product carousel if there's only one image/video in it.

Position the overlay-play buttons in the corners of the WC product images, or in the centre. Independent positioning for each carousel.

Added video schema to the single product page.
Added product gallery sliders to the WooCommerce single product page.
Added "count=X" parameter to the power_post_carousel shortcode so you can override the number of slides on a per-carousel basis.
This fantastic plug-in has dramatically improved our product pages. The plugin allows you to add Youtube, Vimeo, and self-hosted videos from within the slider. Furthermore, because of the VideoObject schema markup it’s made our videos appear next to our products in the Google search results = Win. Very happy.
