I did some random video searches on Alamy today and I was surprised to find some of my videos on there. By the way, I was not contributing to Alamy in the days when they accepted video.

I clicked on a few videos of mine and under 'contributor', it says: "Pond 5 / Alamy Stock Video." And yes, I also have these same videos on Pond 5.

Actually, I vaguely recall some deal between Pond 5 and Adobe Stock where your editorial videos on Pond 5 could be sold through AS. But I wasn't aware of any deal between Pond 5 and Alamy.

Interestingly, only some of my Pond 5 videos are available on Alamy - not all of them. I wonder if there's some kind of selection process or I guess it could be random.

Though it does seem odd that some of my videos on Alamy are also on my Pond 5 exclusive account. Since they're exclusive, I would have assumed they could only be sold through P5. And there are also non exclusive P5 videos of mine on Alamy.

I did check the details of a few of my videos and I notice my Pond 5 account name on them (on the Alamy website.)

Alamy started acting as a Pond5 distributor a few months ago under the Pond5 Global Partnership Programme (GPP). If you haven't opted out of that programme at Pond5, some of your clips will be available via Alamy (you can't specify which). Sales made via Alamy will be paid via the usual Pond5 channel as a GPP sale - Alamy will take their cut, then Pond5 will give the appropriate percentage of the balance depending on whether the clip is exclusive or non-exclusive.

Instead of a random search, you can go to Advanced search and type in your username, to see all your videos.

That doesn't work for our Pond5 videos on Alamy because the assigned contributor is Pond5. They have included the name of clip creator in a Photographer field, but that is non-searchable.

Select videos, use your P5 username and it will work. It works for me.

My apologies. You are absolutely right. That has taken me quite by surprise, but it will be most useful.  :)
