The length of video excepted varies from site to site, with Shutter taking up to a minute and Revo as low as 20 seconds.  I hate to create different version just for different sites.  The max I submit is 30 seconds... does anyone know where the sweet spot is for sales... 15 second, 20 second, 30 second or higher length clips?

Not all clips can be 30 seconds due to the nature of it, but know for instance if 20 second is enough, then I could submit that to all sites without worrying about length...

I still did not pass test on Revostock. They wanted weird format of samples. When I get them video in this format now they claimed that I need to upload full size samples cause they cannot judge them from smaller format their requested :-) Even IStock application was less complicated. Besides that I am trying to keep clips between 5 and 30 secs which is most universal for other sites.

Revo is the most strict site I submit to... I like that in a way, but wish the sales there were better.  They are also the odd one with a 20 second limit... which really sparked my question... if they only accept 20 seconds do most buyers not need clips higher than that?  Sometimes I have a clips that could be cut off at 20 seconds, but I go up to 30 and don't submit them to Revo since I don't want to spend the time to create a separate file.

when i have longer clips i submit the longer ones to other sites, then either reduce the clip to < 20, or make 2 clips of the 30" one and submit both to revo;  if the other sites pass on the long version, i then have the sorter versions to try
