Part 1 Facebook Profile Video Specs and Technical Aspects

First, you need to know the Facebook video specs and technical aspects when trying to upload a video as your Facebook profile.

Facebook Profile Video Length

You can take or upload a video of up to 7 seconds to use as your profile video on Facebook. If your video is longer than that, Facebook allows you to trim the video down to the required length or select the portion you want to use, but it will automatically use the first 7 seconds if you don't do anything.

Facebook Profile Video Size

There doesn't seem to be any size requirement for the videos. But you'll need to crop your video to a 1:1 aspect ratio to fit the profile space.

Facebook Profile Video File Format

You can use any video file formats, including MP4 and MOV, etc. However, a GIF file is not a good choice for the FB profile because Facebook will show GIF profiles as an image rather than an animated picture.
