I'm new to stocksubmitter, most of my files show that error (the file name is too long).. file names are not long and I can upload those files using normal ftp

File name length limit is 50 characters.
The reason for the limit is that Pond5 cuts displayed filename on their website so if you will upload a file with a longer name the program won't be able to identify it :(

Also stocksubmitter doesn't read my metadata (IPTC) that I made in Bridge, is this normal?
Video only here (mp4, mov)
Thanks for help Niakris

I'll recheck in case they changed the limit but it was a 50 characters limit on their website.

Regarding metadata: if you write metadata directly to the video files then the program won't be able to read it (it's not supported yet but it's planned).
The program reads only the metadata stored in JPEG previews.

Aha, thanks. Stock video is  growing fast and it's nice to see more support for video.
By the way, your software is superb!!
