Can anyone please tell me where can I find DT commission rate for video (non exclusive). Is it the same as for photos?

Info is on this page - http://www.dreamstime.com/stock-video-footage click on View All for the Levels. They also offer video credits packages which are similar to subscriptions. Per the forum -

The videos follow the same level system as photos and illustrations. The first sale elevates the video to level 2, with higher prices. If you sell a video as level 1 and you go directly to that clip's page you will find the new, updated prices, because the clip is level 2 now.

Regarding the 9$ royalties, probably the customer bought a very large credit package, it's all explained here in the FAQs: I received unusual royalties.

Thank you cuppacoffee for the link to pricing. Unfortunately, with DT you never know how much a credit is worth.
 I was hoping that there is a different commission rate for footage but I was wrong.

it's all explained here in the FAQs:
I couldn't find the explanation he talks about but it doesn't matter, I'll pass for now.
Thanks again!

Yeah, all that FAQ says is that you can expect different prices depending on the credit package that the buyer purchases, same as subscriptions.

I never uploaded my content there because of the many folks who claimed that their video downloads only got them a few dollars.

Here's a MSG thread on DT video you might be interested in.

Thanks Mantis for the link, it helped me in my final decision not to go there.

Anyway, the site is so slow these days. I have a few images stuck in processing for the second day now. FTP would be even more time consuming.

Video RPD is relatively low compared to other agencies (taken from http://www.dreamstime.com/sell-stock-photos-images, video tab):

Level 0 (0 dls, older than 6 months): approx. $11 for HD, $22 for 4K
Level 1(0 dls, new files): approx. $15 for HD, $30 for 4K
Level 2 (1-4 dls): approx. $24 for HD, $49 for 4K
Level 3 (5-9 dls): approx. $33 for HD, $66 for 4K
Level 4 (10-24 dls): approx. $42 for HD, $85 for 4K
etc.

These are maximum values.
As you can see, the first couple of levels are way below the industry standard. Then it gets better, but it's very unlikely you'll ever hit level 3.
I didn't like the fact that my first sale would only net me $11 or $15, so I decided not to upload video to DT.

Thanks Noedelhap, I visited that page before but I missed the "video revenue" tab at the bottom of the table.

Even level 2 is unlikely for me nonexclusive.
Yes, these are maximums but if you get a web size download than it's just $5.1 for a new file. Very low indeed.
