Facebook’s Official Statement:
We recently started testing the ability on desktop to upload a video as the Page cover. Once a cover video has been created, the video will render when people visit the Page.
By making a cover video available, we want to help you create more engaging interaction and drive more rich experience for your audience by letting you spotlight your creative content in one of the most prominent space: your Page cover.
The feature is still in early testing, but we expect to roll it out more widely soon. We appreciate your patience and support while we improve on this feature to bring cover video available to you soon.
