The problem we all know with still photos is obvious:
1. They were chosen by the person themself, so no objectivity.
2. Sometimes they are OLD photos, which too many people post, hoping that on a first meeting, their date won't notice.
3. They are 2-dimensional and do not reflect physical demeanor, which plays hugely into physical attraction.
4. You can't hear the sound of someone's voice from a photo. This is also a crucial element of real chemistry.
With a video, you can get a sense of a person's energy level, or total lack of energy. You can better assess if they're an extrovert or an introvert, or at least get a good idea anyway. It's all about their body language, which you can't read from a still photo. But just remember if you post a video on Match: Be mindful of bad lighting, like overhead fluorescents which make everyone look awful. And the camera adds 15 pounds...on everybody, not just the "Average" or "A few extra pounds".
