WooCommerce: Show Video Instead of Featured Image @ Product Page

Ecommerce trends are changing a lot. Now, users are consuming more videos, and product images don’t provide many details about the product to the user. In such cases, users are tending to watch a video of product details. Product feature videos are helping them to make a firm decision without confusion.

You just need to know a product id of the product and the embed code of your video. I have explained about youtube video embed code. You can check it at the end of the article.

add_action( 'woocommerce_before_single_product', 'ts_show_video_for_specific_product' );

function ts_show_video_for_specific_product() {
	// Here 31 is product id. You can change it according to your need.
	if ( is_single( '31' ) ) {
		remove_action( 'woocommerce_before_single_product_summary', 'woocommerce_show_product_images', 20 );
	 	add_action( 'woocommerce_before_single_product_summary', 'ts_add_iframe_video', 30 );
	}
}

function ts_add_iframe_video() {
	
	$output = '<div class="woocommerce-product-gallery images">';
        // Replace your iframe code from youtube here.
	$output .= '<iframe width="956" height="538" src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/aqz-KE-bpKQ" frameborder="0" allow="accelerometer; autoplay; encrypted-media; gyroscope; picture-in-picture" allowfullscreen></iframe>';
	$output .= '</div>';
	
	echo $output;
}
