One of the other HUGE benefits of doing real video walk arounds is the capability of sending it to AutoTrader.  I'm sure that other inventory management systems do this but the example used below is using VinSolutions Inventory Management System.  Once you upload your video walk around using the VinCamera into the system, VinSolutions takes care of the rest!  VinSolutions will automatically send your video to AutoTrader just like it does to YouTube!
