As my livelihood does not depend on the stock, I have preferred not to collaborate with companies that I consider exploitative. Right now, I only submit content to Adobe Stock.

Do we have any alternative for editorial videos?

Thanks.

Dreamstime accepts editorial videos. Doing a search there, it doesn't look like there are yet a lot of these, but editorial videos are definitely in the DT database and searchable as such.

But aren't you also getting $2.80 commissions on AS?  I am.  I don't think these low commission sales are avoidable these days.

I was exclusive on pond5 so I didn't have any other video on Adobe. I'm uploading them now.

Then get prepared for your share of $2.80 and $4.20 commissions.

Funny then that you don't see Adobe as being exploitative. They are just also a company trying to maximize their profits. They present them selves better so they have more sheep clothing but if it needs to lower prices they will do so accordingly (see videos). The advantage is that they also have other income streams then stock photography so to gain marketshare they can play around with your share and customer prices until they reach their target. But once that target is reached, beware!
In the end they are all the same and will act the same.

I count on it. The day that happens, I will have to stop uploading content.
