New streaming Amazon button on Amazon capsule?

    Has anyone noticed the "new" streaming amazon button in Amazon capsule (normally stagnant below products). Not sure if I like the blinking while reading but if that draws more clicks to affiliates then I'm all for it ! I'm thinking this might have something to do with the stats glitch though! I'm sure we'll hear something soon !

    Ok now that's strange. I just posted/published  a new hub 10 minutes ago and the radio button for Amazon capsule below the product was flashing and streaming 20 % off then flashed to 'Click here to save" . Now after posting about that here and going back to edit some hubs, the radio button went stagnant. Anyone seen this new feature? Did they recall it now or what? Something's Up!

    I have added that streaming (carousel) ad on one of my blog. It takes time to load though.

    I haven't noticed about to publish a new hub, so I guess I'd see.

    Hope they put that back up.. I was  gettin' GEEKED after seein' it. I was startin' to see $$ signs in my eyes for a minute. Anything to promote extra affiliate clicks is good in my book.

    I doubt if Yieldbuild is setting this. I think HP is testing those ads on their own.

      Not too knowledgable about whether its from yieldbuild or HP test but it definitely showed up for minute and I was stoked! I would assume it was HP testing as you said bcuz it was through an Amazon capsule which yieldbuild probably would not have anything to do with it. I'll bet your right. It's probably in testing mode and I accidentally ran across when adding a module. Stats/hubmetrics do seem to be disabled which would be on Yieldbuild. But maybe thats just to give room to ad the new feature to capsules. Like turning off the electric b4 messing with a new outlet switch !

      in all actuality its really only a little extra flash to get ppl 2 click. its not really a new feature thats controllable. Unless they put in a control to turn on/off the carousel mode of the logo button.

    Is it possible Amazon introduced this carousel to the system of their affiliates everywhere and is messing up with syncing to  hubpages platform without staff actually knowing and might be the reason behind the stats malfunction they're getting on their end? Could be messing with Yieldbuilds functionality !

    I haven't noticed this yet, is this an option on the Amazon capsule set up, or did this just appear?  I don't know if you are sying this is a Hubpages addition or an Amazon addition?

    oli, ...i'm saying it looks like an amazon flash logo rather than the stagnant logo underneath products.. not real sure it just appeared while in preview pane but once I published, then ...GONE ! Not sure what to make of it.

    I thought it was pretty interesting that a PS3 browser would even show up on Analytics.. Caught me by surprise. I thought it might be you bcuz the word oli was in my keyword lists for discovering my hubs. Must've been someone plugged in through the PS3 interface searching the web.
