For some pages, Facebook now offers the ability to display videos instead of a cover photo. They require that the videos be at least 820 pixels wide. I've been unable to figure out how to do that with Powerdirector 15. I keep getting this error message from Facebook.


"Cover videos should be at least 820 x 312 pixels. The recommended size is 820 x 462"



Any suggestions?

The thing that strikes me from that message is "at least".

820x461 is a 16:9 aspect ratio. Why not simply produce to 1920x1080?

Hi patmoore1946 -

This question has come up before, such as here - https://forum.cyberlink.com/forum/posts/list/62735.page

As Longedge suggests, the simplest thing to do is produce to a standard 16:9 profile, like 1920x1080... knowing that parts of your video will be cropped out.

Cheers - Tony

Sorry to take so long to reply. I was out of the country. Now, Facebook isn't even trying the upload. I'll keep at it.
