Simple question.  I've only been uploading to these two for the last couple of years.  None of the other Big 4 seem to be worth it to me.

Then nothing else in micro stock will be worth uploading too. Simple fact, unfortunately.

Kind of a general question.Depends on the amount of work you do, the size of your portfolio and the quality and subject matter of your footage overall, but more important in my opinion, on the pricing you do on the site that lets you price freely, for example pond5 since it's the only one amongst those 2 that lets you set prices.

So if you keep prices lower than the (temporarily) "established" price which is 79 for hd and 199 for 4K so you can get the same amount of commissions at p5 like shutterstock (let's say 50/2=25 usd ) then you perhaps have more choises including videoblocks.
If not then consider carefully where you will place your port because you are going to get even lower commissions everywhere else and propably regret it for even more reasons that low commissions.

If you are the kind of guy that prices everything below 50 usd and have a small enough portfolio to upload then you should (perhaps) consider dissolve too,maybe fotolia,and clipcanvas (although i doubt you will get sales there) .

Do you know that on videohive they sell 4K for $25? And there are some big contributors, I really don't get it, why people are uploading there.
For HD footage you get there about less than $3 this is crazy.

Just so we can have a balanced discussion, two thumbs down for Videoblocks.

Thanks!  I'll look into Videoblocks.

My average pricing on Pond5 is $50.  I usually do a search to see what similar stuff is selling for, some for quite a bit over, but none below $20 (fairly common stuff).  Maybe I should consider letting Pond5 set the price for me.
