I suggest you not to upload videos to iStock.
Personally I stopped 3-4 years ago. Why:
- They pay much less than others. Sometimes you get cents, yes literally cents!
- Uploading to them is complicated. Special resolution, specials codecs, fps.
- Disambiguating nonsense
Not worth at all.

Not! Since they payed 2 or 3 cents per download, i don't uploading new work to them

Everyone should do that!

Because of tiny return per download numbers... I removed my clips from istock.
