Uploading a video as your Facebook cover video is as simple as uploading a new photo. Though you can upload it only on your Business Facebook page
Facebook video cover feature is a new Beta feature on Facebook, and sometimes, you might not be able to upload your video successfully, as it is simply might not load.
So if you are not able to upload your video as Facebook cover, we would suggest you to wait a bit and try again later.
To add or change your Page's cover video:
- Go to your Page.
- Click Add a Cover or Change Cover in the top left of your cover photo or video
- Select Upload Photo/Video to upload a video from your computer, or select Choose From Videos to use a video you've already uploaded to your Page. Keep in mind your cover video should be at least 820 x 312 pixels and between 20 and 90 seconds.
For FB cover you need to download video in Widescreen ratio from your Promo account. And for your text to look the best on your cover, make sure to place it in the center of the video. If the text is placed directly in the center of the footage, it will be perfectly visible on your cover page.
- Select the video from either your computer or your existing videos.
- After the video has uploaded, reposition the video by clicking it and dragging it up or down, then click Next.
- Click the arrows to scroll through up to 10 thumbnail options for your cover video. The thumbnail image may be used when someone hovers over your Page's name to get more context about your Page.
If you want your video on FB cover to replay automatically in a loop, you can Enable or Disable this feature
- Click Publish.
- And confirm by clicking Publish in a pop up window
Done :) Your FB cover should be successfully uploaded on your Business Page :)
And if later you decide to remove your cover video, the video won't be automatically deleted and will still be available in your Page's video library.
