You have to group videos and catalog them in a certain way + you have to submit a demo video featuring the clips. They sent me an invite and I told them that if they auto generated the demo, accepted csv files and offered higher commission rates (I think any new site should offer commission rates greater then 55% getting into the game at this late stage) then maybe. But to ask for more of contributors and not deliver with royalties then why would anyone bother. But to be fair I will paste their email reply below as I was impressed with it and they may be a site to watch.
-------
First, you are not coming off as rude at all. We appreciate your honesty and candidness. I have take the time to answer your questions in order below

1) Making a demo is a big ask for only 70% for 2 years.

We encourage 15-20 second demos of the packages to facilitate a better experience for our customers and generate more income for you. Since its a package, rather than individual clips, were selling the best way to easily showcase the package content is with a demo (trailer). We know that customers enjoy getting a brief summary of the package. Once the demo has generated their interest they will watch each clip and in the end buy the package. We know that production schedules can be grueling so we also have an Auto Demo Generating Service on the site to make the package creating process a little easier for our contributors.

2) 55% commission is low for a new stock company to offer especially when other new sites are offering 70% or 100% like Videoblocks (which in the last 3 months has added an additional 1million videos due to this high contributor royalty rate)

We feel that 55% is a fair percentage considering we are still in beta. Our funds are currently being allocated in to building the best platform possible and amassing a library. As it stands, nothing is set in stone and things may change in the future regarding royalty fees. Videoblocks has been around for way longer than us and sell individual clips. They also have paid subscriptions which help them pay at 100%.

3) $49 for 4K clips (in a batch of 6) is not adequate, the average range is between $299 and $89 per 4K clip, Videoblocks has been giving me $199 for a 4K sale.

We are not selling individual clips. This concept is what separates us from other agencies. We sell b-roll packages of 4-7 clips each. You can easily increase the amount of money you make per clip by simply decreasing the amount of clips in your 4K package. Maybe for 4K packages you can have 4 clips in each to increase the amount to $74 per clip. Keep in mind that our prices are at a promotional stage right now to encourage customers to buy.


We are eager to engage contributors like you to set a high level of produced footage in our b-roll library and give our customers an idea of the quality and diverse footage they can get. We are looking for video experts who can deliver multiple video clips on particular subjects such as aerials, time lapses, or specific locations, countries or activities and it is obvious that you are an expert in many topics. We would love it if you became part of the B-RollStock.com team!

We understand that at this point it may seem that our rates arent reasonable, but they are for the time and stage we are in. We comprehend where youre coming from. We are filmmakers ourselves and are completely empathetic to the production struggle. Its hard work and we love it. Know that we are not in this business to take advantage of anyone. We have a mission to corner the market with a great idea that production houses will gravitate to as soon as they realize that we have every angle covered.

Who offers 70%, just out of interest?

There are 4-6 clips in a package.

A HD package is $199. We receive 70% for the first two years and after that 55%.
A 4K package is $299. We receive 70% for the first two years and after that 55%.

Considering the effort involved in making the packages this is not worth it.
4-6 4K clips for $299 is nuts.

I've been wanting to spend a bit of time to learn more about b-rollstock but if this sums up the deal....it's a deal breaker. Save's me some time though. Thanks!
