I should be able to pick the main video on my page that I pay monthly for!

I pay monthly for this site! Why can't I choose which video can be the main video on my profile next to my main photo? Months back they allowed us to be in charge but then they changed it and now they get to pick the video even if it's some random trailer or interview. As an actor I want my most recent demo reel to be in that main video slot. That's what I want people to be able to see as a first option then look at my other videos if they choose to do so. IMDB wants to be able to pick what video is in that main slot. Their "logic" for how that main video is picked makes no sense at all. Again, I'm paying monthly for that video so I should be able to pick.

I agree. In a similar situation now, where a very outdated trailer for a tiny project I did 10 years ago is the featured video on my page, and am feeling very frustrated that I can't trade it out. I have exponentially better and more up-to-date clips on my reel - ones that people would likely be much more interested in, and I'd soooooo much rather have everyone see. Been paying for IMDbPro for years, and this just seems weird.

I have the exact same issue as those above. Primary video showing is for a short film I agreed to be in some 10 or 12 years ago.  Crazy.  As an IMDBpro subscriber, this is just absurd.

Please fix this issue, IMDb!!!  Displaying our video of choice/demo reel should be a basic feature of our IMDb pro accounts.  I don't want this trailer from a film I had one line in 10 years ago to be my featured video!  PLEASE let us choose and leave the current "logic" for those that aren't pro subscribers.

I see this thread was started a year ago. Same issue happening here. A crappy short film I was in over a decade ago is my MAIN VIDEO when people look me up. And to boot, I'm not even in the crappy short film's trailer. This is super frustrating and just straight up embarrassing. We all do work early on in our careers as we learn and grow. You want to leave it on my page to be some sort of archive, fine I get it. But to make it the FIRST look that people get of me is absolutely ridiculous.

I literally had to request that they take down every other video I had so I could be left with only my demo reels and that's how I was able to get my latest reel on their. I had trailers and interviews that had piled up over the years and I hated to see them go but it's the only way I could get my reel back on my main page. IMDB has really dropped the ball on this.
