After Storyblocks's dead i decided to subscribe another site.
What's the best site for videos sellers in your opinion?
I like Adobe to, but i've a lot of editorials so it is quite limited for me. ::)

From what I understand, Pond5 specializes in video, which sells well there.

I can't speak to that, since I've just uploaded a few hundred videos there and am still awaiting my first sale in that department. (I've got many stills there, but compared to SS, AS, and the like, they hardly sell at all.)

You can always try to get into Vimeo stock.

Otherwise go for Dissolve if you're desperate :/ the rest is not worth it.

Please excuse my ignorance, but why is Storyblocks dead...? Just getting started and also registered there. Would appreciate your reply!

EDIT: I guess it's related to what is being discussed here...?

Sales have fallen off for some contributors

Get what commercial videos you have on Adobe Stock and give Dissolve a try would be my best advice.

1. They increased the price to $79 rather than $49, so removed the only real USP of the marketplace... as they don't have the quality and quantity of the other big agencies. If it's $79 there and $79 elsewhere, but with more choice elsewhere... I think a lot of people went elsewhere.

2. Clips in the library seemed to be given precedence in the search over marketplace clips.
