MicrostockSubmitter / Loading NAS in SS
« on: January 18, 2018, 03:06 »
Hi Niakris,

Quick question; Stocksubmitter has trouble loading my network drives. They are mapped to letters and seemed to load randomly, i usually just close and reload SS repeatedly until they pop up. What is the best way to avoid this and have them load first time? Browsing for folder doesn't work as they aren't under Networks and the Mapped letters don't appear anywhere in the browse for folder list.

Also how do i reset the configuration? I loaded an .ssb from other win7pc to win10pc and it ran really slow so id rather wipe it and start clean.

Also hows the iStock rewrite going?


MicrostockSubmitter / iStock ESP connection error
« on: December 03, 2017, 20:21 »
Hi guys,

Just having problems uploading to Getty iStock. I've verified my logins details, tried logging into incognito, etc. When clicking upload it pops out a Connection error message: "Check your internet connection and try again". Details say: "Code UnkownConnectionError".

This my first time uploading to Getty so not sure whats the correct way. Any help appreciated!


General Stock Discussion / Metadata Titles and Descriptions
« on: November 23, 2017, 18:10 »
Hi all,

Does anyone know what the general policies are regarding identical metadata for several images or videos? Do all titles and descriptions of videos/images have to be unique? I've tried googling but haven't found anything conclusive.

Thanks in advance!

MicrostockSubmitter / Submissions over error
« on: July 26, 2017, 19:12 »
Hi Niakris,

I posted awhile ago about the submissions error i was getting and have started uploading large quantities again but i am still getting the System/Submissions. 80% of the submissions have completed but the rest keep resulting in the error. See image. I've restarted multiple times and when i click account in Stocksubmitter it opens a browser and confirms i am on an unlimited plan.

Otherwise loving it, Thanks!

MicrostockSubmitter / Compatible Category list (Video)
« on: May 09, 2017, 21:29 »

Is there a list of compatible video categories. Uploading to 7 sites and only Adobe really has problems. 10% of the time it wont read the category. Also Videohive does the same thing but rarely. I think i've narrowed down the categories that don't register but would be good to have an official list?


General Stock Discussion / Clips under 5 seconds?
« on: March 06, 2017, 00:49 »
Hi guys,

Just wanted to ask if anyone has any experience in selling very short clips. While most footage stock sellers have a minimum clip duration of 5 seconds, some accept clips that are as short as 3 seconds (Pond5, Getty, Videoblocks, i think).

Has anyone had success selling anything between 3-5 seconds? Or is it not worth the time and just best to focus on clips strictly over 5 seconds? I'd be trashing a lot of clips if i stuck to 5 thought.


MicrostockSubmitter / Uploaded videos filenames
« on: February 23, 2017, 18:11 »

Quick question regarding filenames, when uploading a video to several major stock sites, the clip is renamed during upload, to something like "UEJTQl9KU19CMDAxX0MwMDE.mov", can this be changed?
