Aweber video question

is it possible to embed a youtube video into an email without it actually taking the person to youtube when they click to play it?

I want them to be able to just click the video and it play right there in the email without them going to youtube.

can this be done?

    You could play video's in emails like 10 or so years ago. But these days service providers are going to prevent it, because it could be use for malicious activities instead of the intended purpose.

    There was a post that I read a while back, that the OP was looking for a product that supposedly someone had come up with a way to do it. Does it really exist...I don't know.

    The only way I could see it being done is if you send it through a Facebook Message. That might be a better option because deliverability is 100% there.

    Why you don't want to take them to youtube?

    Actually what I was doing is take a screenshot of video, and then embed that image into email body and just link to a video.. That is the same effect as the real video is in email body, but it takes you to youtube though..

    I don't believe you can easily embed videos, though if you are worried about losing traffic to all of the other content on YouTube, I recommend creating a blank page on your blog and embedding the video there. You can then link a screenshot of the video to the blank embed page for the user to view it on.

        Not sure what the OP's answer is, but I'd avoid sending them to youtube like the plague.

        There are similar videos or recommended videos on the right. Major distraction and pulls away from a direct sales funnel.

        You send them to youtube, you may never see them again.
