Create a Video

Great Videos are on Rentwlo.

All you need to know about videos for our marketplace in one page!

Let’s review how to create a video in a format and size suitable for publishing in Rentwlo. And how to make sure your videos are approved for publishing.

1. Create

Video Tours.

Landlords provide their own video tours. More than a video it is a way to provide an experience.

Recommendation

All you need is your smartphone. In video settings choose 720p.
With your phone in a Horizontal position, record a video of your property. Your video tour should present everything about your property. Explain the layout, show all divisions and details, share how it feels to live in the property and neighbourhood. Do you have a separate Storage room? And Private parking? Show that too. Simple.
Video duration should be 8 – 10 min.
We recommend 1 or 2 videos per property.

Simple rules

Do not provide any form of contact, direct or indirect, like phone numbers, emails, pages, links or addresses, etc.
Do not show or indicate the property building number and apartment number. To show the street is ok.
Note: Rentwlo verifies that video tours correspond to the correct property.

Personal Videos.

A feature unique to Rentwlo. A Personal Video is a short video cv. It is used by tenants in booking requests (if requested by the host). A good way to go about this is to do one video that you can re-use for all your booking requests at a given time.

Recommendation

All you need is your smartphone. In video settings choose 720p.
With your phone in a Horizontal position, record a video of yourself. Present yourself and your family, talk about your career, current job and income, and why you want to rent the property.
Video duration should be 3 – 5 min.

Simple rules

Do not provide any form of contact, direct or indirect, like phone numbers, emails, pages, links or addresses, etc.
Note: The Personal Video must feature the Tenant.

2. Location

We offer the possibility for videos to be hosted in Rentwlo or hosted on an external site like YouTube or Vimeo.

If you are a YouTube or Vimeo content creator, using those services might be easier for you. For all other users it will be much easier to upload your videos to Rentwlo.

3. Compress

If you want to upload your video to Rentwlo, you will need to compress it first. The video you recorded will likely be a pretty large file. We need to convert it to a lower size (lower resolution).

Use a smartphone app to compress your video to a lower resolution but still with good quality.
After using the app, your videos should have the following specs:

Video Format: MP4 (only MP4 is supported)
Personal Video: Max file size 80MB
Video Tour: Max file size 150MB

Video Compression App Suggestion

Free App for Android phone: ‘Smart Video Compressor’, from Clogica.
Open the App. Click +Select. Select your video. Use the horizontal bar to select the Target Size. Click Convert. Rename file if you want and select output folder. Click DONE. Wait for processing. It takes about 1-2 minutes. Done. Review your video to check final quality.

Free App for iPhone: ‘Video Compressor – Shrink Video’, from Zheng Weijie.
Open the App. Click the round button. Select your video. Use the horizontal bar to select the Target Size. Click the down arrow to compress. Wait for processing. Once finished (it only takes a few seconds), click More. Select ‘Save to Files’, select your folder (rename the file if you want) and click Save. Done. Review your video to check final quality.

The result of both Apps will be an MP4 file. Also, now you have your video with the right size for Rentwlo.

App for Video Editing (in case you need to edit your video)

Free App: ‘Splice – Video Editor & Maker’, from Bending Spoons.
Available for both Android and iOS. Have fun!

4. Upload, Manage, Use

Then login to Rentwlo, and go to Dashboard / Personal Videos, or Dashboard / Property Videos and upload your video. You can see all your videos in the same location. Start building your library.
Note: Tenants don’t have the ‘Property Videos’ tab.
That’s it!

Booking Request
When doing a booking request you can select the video(s) you’d like to use from your library.

Add New Listing
