Now what,  for every video I have to prepare video in proxy format and if approved then I can upload final one? I thought uploading images to IS is cumbersome.

Register for FTP upload first of all.

Then upload everything in full resolution via FTP.

The proxy option is for people with small bandwidth.

I thought only exclusives can use FTP?  I upload via the online page, just like with photos.  It takes a long time and sometimes goes wrong.  They take a very long time to review, it can take over a month.

I would recommend uploading one first, to make sure it is accepted.  Having a large batch of videos rejected with istock would be a nightmare.  They are quite lenient but I have had some rejected that were accepted on 4 other sites.

Not anymore. I searched the forums and saw many people uploading via FTP who are not Exclusives. I asked and everyone told me that everybody can use it now.

Istock didn't change the info on the submission page.

I had major problems with HTTP upload therefore I prefer FTP. Works great!

Wow, why wouldn't they let us know?  It has been a PITA uploading footage there and I had just about given up.  Will try again now.  I can't believe how strange they behave sometimes.  This is something positive but I still feel annoyed :)

I've given up to feel annoyed - it just gets in the way of our daily business.

If you accept all the bumps in the road (as it is in real life anyway) it's so much easier to move on.

Well, don't tell anyone about the FTP upload. Review times for footage is almost a month now so I don't want too many people dumping their clips on them  ;D
