Play-on-hover videos!

A small enhancement to our images on some landing pages was rolled out quietly a few weeks ago. On some of our larger images if you move your mouse over the image, the seemingly still image will start to play a video. Laurie Williams, the video product manager, and Daniel Lopez, a front-end developer, we're involved in this project and we hope they wow'ed you with this feature.

See it in action on this video:

 

 

Here's Daniel with the feature that can be seen on Zappos.com/rideshop

That's awesome! The climbing video on the Outdoor page looks really outstanding.

Can you make it so the mouse cursor fades out as the video plays?
