How do I change the lead video on my imdb page?  I set my Demo Reel as my Primary Video, but when I go to imdb.com or the imdb app, My cover/featured video is a trailer for Megalodon.  I did not upload Megalodon, and would like to simply have my own Demo Reel as my featured video that shows.  Any way to change it?  Thank you.

Hi, Dominic Pace.

Please examine the official guidelines:
  1. Can I change the order of videos/demo reels on my page so that a specific reel appears first?
  2. And this one:
If the demo reel does not appear on the "Your Videos" page, it means it was added with a previous account and can't be removed on your end. 
For more assistance, please visit our Contact Us page while logged into your IMDbPro account and select IMDbPro member questions > Images & Video > Remove/update videos  (if you are logged out of your IMDbPro account, please select IMDbPro member questions > Other IMDbPro member issues), then select "Email" to provide us with the URL of the video to request removal and other relevant information.

At the top of my page there's a trailer for a film I'm in. Is there a way to remove it or at least shift it to another part of my profile or replace it with one of my acting reels? I'm wondering why, out of all the films I've appeared in, it's the only one that's on my profile. It's not a role I have a big problem with, but it's just not the film trailer I would want as the first thing everyone sees when they land on my profile page.

This reply was created from a merged topic originally titled Can get my demo reel to appear on my IMDB page.

I'm an actor with an IMDB page and an IMDB Pro account. My IMDB has several videos linked to it that I didn't put there - trailers for films & video games I've been in. I uploaded my demo reel to IMDB Pro and set it as "Primary Demo Reel" on the video management page. For a few days this worked and my reel was displayed next to my photo on my IMDB page. However, then it reverted for no reason & is showing a video game trailer. There's not option to delete the videos I don't own and I've tried deleting and reloading the demo reel and setting it "Primary" again. However, I can't get my reel back on the IMDB front page. Any suggestions gratefully received. Thanks.
