How do I make a profile video?

If a photo says a thousand words, consider video profiles more akin to a short story. By creating a video profile, you can express yourself to the Airbnb community and make a great first impression. We recommend you start with your name and where you’re from, and then let us know your interests, a fun fact about yourself, or why you love Airbnb. To record one, go to Edit Profile > Photos and Video > Record a new video.

After you click to record your video, you will be asked to allow Airbnb to use your webcam. You will have 30 seconds to record your profile, and when you’re done you will have the opportunity to preview or re-record your video before uploading it. If your webcam does not detect you, go ahead and push the little button on the bottom right of the window to choose your camera.

At this time, you cannot upload a video profile saved on your computer or a video for your listing.
