It'll be nice to show a video preview (with a play button) underneath the profile description, in place of the current "Play video" link. Showing a video preview instead of a link will make that section more prominent, and will encourage people who haven't added a video like me to create one.
Any update on this? It's been a bit over a year since I posted this and I didn't know what Upwork's decision was on this and whether this is something Upwork wants to implement.
I still haven't recorded a video yet because of this missing "IMO" main and no brianer feature.
Please let me know.
We aren't aware of any immediate plans to replace the link with a preview yet. However, if there are any changes in this area, we'll definitely post an announcement in the Community.
