Like all "middle tier" agencies listed to the right, 123RF at the moment, when they by accident sell a video clip you feel like taking a week off with the family to the Bahamas to celebrate.
More or less the same I believe goes on for still images (although I am not into photos very much).
Okkydokky, sadly all agencies apart from the big 3 (or 4?) have died, but at least some of them are extremely easy to upload to, so you could hold on uploading for some more time waiting for a miracle.
But uploading footage to 123RF is a real nightmare, almost as bad as Videohive (well no, actually VH is 100.000.000 times worst).

When you dare uploading footage at 123RF, first of all you should not go for more than 10 files at a time, otherwise it goes crazy. I upload 40-50 video clips a week, so having to break it in 5 sessions for 123 is a huge pain in the neck.
What's more you have to be there and wait until the last moment of the file transfer and then immediately click the process button. If you miss the sweet spot and do it 5 minutes late, it doesn't like it and you have to restart the FTP upload from scratch.

So I am afraid, but it is time to cut the dead branches and say: "bye bye 123RF"

Hi, same problem here my friend. I use 6 stock website, and the worst one is 123rf. I tried to upload 10 footage several times, but it keeps saying   "No files found in the processing queue."  I searched for the solution, then i found your topic. Now i see, i think i have to check it when my upload complete. But hey, we cant wait until upload complete.

I think i don't use 123rf anymore.

I have definitely given up.
Too much time wasted to get a sale every time that a pope dies

I can upload there but the files are not reviewed. I have video clips since April 2016 there and still have not been reviewed (stuck in "Pending" stage).
