[Objective] This paper analyzes the characteristics of crowdfunding videos from the perspectives of their status quo, contents and features. [Methods] Based on the theory of task presentation affordance, we first constructed a two-dimensional (initiator and participant) framework to analyze the contents and formats of the videos. Then, we examined the proposed method with, a Chinese crowdfunding platform. [Results] We found that (I) videos could significantly improve the effectiveness of crowdfunding by attracting more supporters. However, few Chinese crowdfunding cases used videos; (II) the contents and characteristics of the crowdfunding videos had some similarities and differences. [Limitations] The analytical framework needs to be extended, refined, and then examined with other crowdfunding platforms. [Conclusions] This study helps us optimize the design of crowdfunding platforms and improve the performance of related programs.
