Can I use a video for my Facebook cover?

Yes! In fact, we encourage it even more if you have a business page. It’s more engaging than just a still photo. If you have a personal page you will not have this feature currently but maybe in the future they will provide it.

Do Facebook cover videos play on mobile?

Yes. The cover video will play automatically on mobile the same way it does on desktop. Don’t worry about that!

How do you crop a video for Facebook cover?

Videos will automatically be cropped to 820 x 462 pixels. For this reason, it’s important to keep any important images and text centralized so they won’t get cut out. The mobile crop is slightly different and will crop less of your video, but once you’ve uploaded it, double-check to make sure it looks okay on mobile.
