Answered in the 123RF forum -- yes.

Seems particularly unfair for video-only contributors, since there will be only 10 months of sales by then. And how likely it is that initial sales of new media on any site are going to be robust?

Hey Stocker2011,

It's ok to upload using the codec PhotoJpeg.

Kindly email to submission@123rf.com if you're facing any difficulties in video uploading so that we can guide you from there.

Have a pleasant day!


Cheers,
Anglee

Made the decision not to invest the time to upload footage there much easier. Think I'll concentrate on Pond 5 where I can set my own prices and get 50% instead.

Does anyone know the video specs of 123RF?

Quote
Supported file formats are : .MOV, .WMV, .MP4
Kindly ensure your footages do not exceed 1 minute in duration.

The above doesn't say much. I'm need to know if the accept .mov files with the PNG codec and support for alpha channel.

Also, on the summary info table for each video, there is no information about the original video codec.
Buyers need to know this information.

Cheers.

Unfortunately, the longer the delay, the less time available to earn the 50% commission level  promised that led some to upload in the first place. Not to mention it lessens the time to earn "credits" towards achieving a higher than minimum commission level starting January.  :(

^^ Indeed it is -- thanks! As of when, I wonder?

The first search I tried was Hawaii ... and in the top 12 results were: a time lapse of clouds moving over the Grand Canyon, 3 palm tree videos keyworded with a multitude of countries that have palm trees, Atlantic Ocean Dominican Republic, and a majestically beautiful waterfall in Taiwan. But the other half (6) were all actual scenes taken in Hawaii.

This isn't a knock on 123RF, it's a knock against my fellow contributors who love to spam locations (among other things). (Though the Grand Canyon and Taiwain ones don't appear to be location spamming -- their keywords seem to pertain to different clips.)

Keyword spamming is so prevalent that IMO sites that weigh keywords based on buyer's purchases and clicks will eventually end up with much better search results than those that do not.

We've gone live on Monday, it's a very soft launch, ie. only several countries have it. Once we iron out the bugs etc. We'll go all out to promote and push footage.
Great, glad to hear that. I hope it goes very well.

As for the locations and keywording spam, it's a normal occurrence, we can remove keywords from the index at a future date.
I wish there was a system by which buyers (or anyone who does a search) could report bad keywords. It doesn't mean the files would have to be changed, but at least that would give a mechanism for someone who is a keywording expert to be alerted to look and decide. OTOH, it could cause more harm than good if there aren't proper resources available (i.e., an available keywording expert).

Hey Stocker2011,

Yes, you need to click on the "Earnings"  located at the Footer when logged into 123RF to retrieve the full earnings report.

The credits on the top bar acts as a reminder to clients on their credit balance in the account for them to download images.

As for the video stats page, we're improving the features in stages. You can only upload, keywords and submit videos at the moment. We'll keep you posted as we add in new features.


Thanks,
Anglee
