I remember Craigslist was able to accept some coding language, but does anyone know how I would put this video on the site to advertise?

HTML is used for Craigslist, right?

HTML for CL (http://www.craigslist.org/about/help/html_in_craigslist_postings/)

Images are accepted, but I googled videos on CL, and CL doesn't allow videos.

You could try it, but you risk it getting yanked.

Even if you can't embed the vid, you can post the link to the video in the ad.

That's a great idea! If you could embed videos in craigslist, it would be sweet!

Maybe either link to it, with an image linking to it? Or have it link to your website with an image that has the video on it?

Would any of that work?

YES! That is sweet! Nice job!

Now you can keep watch of the view count and see how many people are going there from your craigslist ad!
