Do you still practice the policy where actors cannot remove videos from their own IMDB accounts? This is absurd. I pay for my IMDB Pro account and still have unwanted videos attached to my profile. I should have the right to remove them, as they are mostly just promotion.

If you are in the videos yet feel they are not representative of your work, another option is to upload demo reels and clips which are more representative so they still stand out from the others.

A visit of an IMDb staff to this old "Answered" topic is quite unlikely. So you would prefer to create a new topic on this forum.
But maybe, search this forum first, as this issue has already been answered numerous times...

Hi Aaron,

Videos appearing on a person's page are derived from the titles in their filmography. In other words, we display links to videos/trailers based on filmography credits, regardless of whether the individual is featured in the video clip or not. 

If there is an error in the filmography, you can submit a correction by going to the bottom of the name page and clicking the "Edit Page" button to edit the information. However if the credit is accurate then the video will be retained.

Thank you for understanding.

Regards,
Will
