Is it weird that an eBay seller wants you to upload a video of a faulty product to YouTube?

I got something and part of it didn't work,

I sent pics but the eBay DM system doesn't let you share videos.

And the seller asked me to link them a YouTube vid.

I dunno, it just feels kinda weird 馃槙

Would you send a video through eBay if it allowed you to?

@Fishy so it would be a privacy concern then?

If I really wanted a replacement, I would just make a new YouTube account if I had that privacy qualm.

The request itself isn't weird as people scam all the time and people want to verify it's actually broken

@deadgerbil I just think it's dumb that eBay doesn't allow you to upload vids 馃槙
Easier way to show video of the the failing product. Photos do not prove faulty unless visibly broken.

It may be a bit odd bit it sounds like a reasonable request for proof the thing is actually defective.

Don鈥檛 do anything outside EBay. Any issues take it to customer service.

Either they want proof or they're just stalkers
You don't need to make a video. Just request a return through eBay.
