What If I Don’t Have A Video For Facebook Cover?

No worries. Since we do a lot of logo animated videos lately, we are receiving requests regularly from our clients, asking us to prepare their logo animated video for Facebook page cover. Since most of our logo animations are under 20 seconds long, we have to take care about their length and loop them at least two or three times to achieve the minimal length requirement.
Beside that, most of time our logo animation projects are already optimized for the Facebook cover page video, since Facebook accepts all kinds of mp4 format without any hassle. The only thing our clients have to take care of is to position the cover video once it is uploaded so it is centered on the cover photo layout.
Facebook page cover video loads automatically once Facebook page is fully loaded, and it plays automatically.

Nice way for brand visibility or to visually present your product or a service…

What About Facebook Cover Video On Mobile Devices – Is It Supported?

Only downside at the moment, which we are aware of, is that videos are not automatically played on mobile devices and, instead, one frame is taken from the video as the poster for the cover photo.
Also, sound of the video is muted when the video is initially played, but you can toggle that any time by clicking on the speaker icon (found at the bottom-right side of the cover).
The Facebook Page cover video is still in beta phase so it may not be available to one hundred percents of the Facebook pages. You can easily check that if you have the camcorder icon in the top left side corner of the Facebook page cover photo layout.
