Why is my film's trailer under External Sites? I want it linked direct to my film's home page.

I've loaded my film's trailer but it features under 'External Sites', but I want the link on the film's home page under 'Trailers and Videos'. How do I rectify this? Please advise.

Hi Carol,

Because you most likely linked it as an external link...!
Please check the Help on how to upload a trailer.

Thank you Vincent and Col for you help. Yes, I know I uploaded it as an external link as there was no alternative option on the IMDB Contributor page. Is the Scorecard Access page a replacement system for updating IMDB pages or an additional resource? I've emailed for access, so hopefully all will be revealed.

Hi Carol,

Yes it's an additional resource which gives you access to certain features.

Thanks Will, unfortunately your new Scorecard system is giving me further issues. As a freelance writer, I don't have a company name just my own. So I've tried twice to gain access but have been rejected both times.  Any ideas how to get around this?  I've never needed a company name for any of my films I've loaded to IMDB before. I simply want to link our film trailer to our site.

Assuming the title is https://www.imdb.com/title/tt8032252/ here? Can you ask someone from French Fancy Productions (https://www.imdb.com/title/tt8032252/companycredits) to apply for a Scorecard account and upload it or ask if you can become their official representative and apply on their behalf?

Thanks Col, yes I just didn't want to land them with all the hassle for the sake of adding one trailer.  It simply doesn't make sense that I can load everything else related to the film, except the trailer. Why split that one aspect away from the contributor's form?

Any contributor can add a link to the trailer on a third party site as you have done already. 

To add the trailer directly to the title page requires us to host the video and therefore have certain processing / publication rights, hence why we need verified permission from a representative of one of the companies responsible for the title. This is where Scorecard comes in -- it protects us and the filmmakers legally, and also protects titles from inappropriate video uploads.
