Hello, you create your own categories in a very easy to use UI, it creates a category tree, and you can make sub categories etc, click and drag them around etc. Products are also easily created. It pretty much walks you thru everything with tabs providing what info is required etc.  there is also an imporot feature which I haven’t tried yet, but I think you can import products via a csv file.

As for video, I have no doubt, I am close to embedding a flash flv, if you will see my post regarding flash but no skin. Once that is solved it will be doable. I imagine you can also embed windows media player with the same html you use on any web page.  The descriptions etc all use and accept scripting, flash, html etc. Its a very nice product, best I have seen.  The total package.  You can look over my partially completed site, http://www.epicurecookware.com to get some idea of how complete it is, with related products, upsells etc.  If you look at my site, browse the Ruffoni Opera line, its really the only completed category. 

All in all I say its excellent and highly recommend it.
