What if we could post one video or send one

@Hi-there

I understand the intent of the videos, but as I have reiterated, it can be done by other means.  There is a reason why there is no customer support email address /phone number/live chat etc.  It is cost prohibitive to hire people  to review videos.  It will not happen.

@Lapua-Thank you for your time and response.
@Lapua it's done on another site just like this one with no problems at all. I post a 3 sec video and up to 10 pictures. They have software that can recognize what the item is...

@BrightMoonstone-I also am aware of a few other buying & selling sites that allow you to add/upload video content. There are also times that you have the option to view the feedback & people have stated "Being allowed to see the item work & being able to view the videos have been extremely helpful as a buyer." (For example). That's why this is a great forum where people have the ability to put ideas out there, & we can provide feedback.

Even with Google's resources it cannot figure out a way to make a decent image recognition imaging software, and neither does China.  No such algorithm exists at this time for each "bit" recognition within a video.

@BrightMoonstone--Thank you for your response!! You brought up valid points!! I really appreciate it!!
@Lapua I use this site every day what I'm saying is it knows if its something inappropriate during those 3 seconds. There's other sites that have this feature with no problems..they don't need a crew to watch every video

The video premise is not an innovative idea (ie.. Etsy, Vzar,etc.).  Each app has different values.

OfferUp is all about safety, having the ability to see both buyers and sellers in a short video., would make OfferUp members more comfortable in the buying and selling experience, and yes there is other sites with video options. 😎🇬🇧

BTW, this subject has been discussed before. Believe or not both @Elinand @Mj_206 agreed with my thoughts on the matter in regards to compliancy. You can search the forums.
