Great news that they offer video, the problem is the comissions are too low to interest me.

Already tried that, Unfortunatly although i have good quality stuff, I only have about 60 clips vs 1000 images. They want like 2500 clips to make deals like that. Ive been doing this about 18 months and mostly been working on images not video.

As they wont offer me any better I wont send them anything

I'm in the same boat.  I'm mainly do photos.  Videos are a nice diversion but my clip collection too small for them to feel a need to negotiate. 

My photo return per download is very, very low at deposit. Far lower than shutterstock or any other site.   Subs, subs and subs mostly.  Deposit is bringing in less than 1% market share despite having my full portfolio (about 1700 images).  I don't think uploading videos to them would be an efficient use of my time...

Still not seeing video live at DP, hopefully they are re-thinking their commissions :)

Hopefully they are re-thinking their pricing too.  I looked at a clip or two on their website and they were charging $35 for a full HD clip!

Where did you see clips being sold on their site? The search option for videos isn't showing on my end.

Correct.  Videos are not an option to be searched directly.  I simple searched for "footage" with all files selected and some videos come up.  The full HD pricing shows as $35.  This may or may not be what they are actually charging for footage.  If it is then it is a non-starter for me.

I tried the 'footage' search and some videos appeared for me as well, the majority were selling for $35 for 1080p but i saw one selling for $60. How bizarre, no search option and different pricing.

Pricing is way to low for HD

I'm new to this site, but it seems they have quite different pricing nowadays, am I correct?

Hard to tell with credits here and there, but to me it seems like the cheapest plans are $56 for HD and about $140 for 4k, putting them right below where the competition is.
