Video Requirements

December 11, 2020 / Contributors

Don’t despair if your videos are rejected. We will work with you to improve your video submissions. SkyStock aims to offer clients high-quality resolution videos and currently, videos will be rejected for:

  • Location: This is by far the biggest reason for video rejection. Please ensure an accurate location of where your video was taken from. When you manually submit a location please ensure it is accurate. If your videos are declined for location information you can resubmit. Go to the Video tab on your Dashboard and under Actions click edit.
  • Resolution: Videos must be of high resolution which is currently set at a minimum of HD resolution. Smaller videos will be automatically rejected during the upload process. Maximum resolution is currently set at UHD resolution. If you have videos greater than this size please contact us.
  • Size: 4G upload maximum. Larger videos will be automatically rejected during the upload process.
  • Frame Rate: We current only except videos with the following frame rate: 23.98, 24, 25, 29.97, 30, 47.95, 47.96, 48, 49, 49.96, 50, 59.94, 60. If you have videos with different frame rates please contact us.
  • Lighting/Colour: Over/underexposed videos meaning the video or parts of a frame is too bright/dark can lead to rejection. One of the main culprits here is white objects such as boats or houses that are too bright. In regards to colour, editing is allowed however don’t go too crazy with the colours. Our goal is to provide ready to use images.
  • Not Aerial: Our platform is for aerial videos only which can be taken from a variety of sources. If your video is not taken from the air, or it is very low to the ground it can be rejected.
  • Watermark: During the upload process we watermark your public video files. Once customers purchase a video then they will be sent a copy without the watermark.
  • Too Similar: While a number of videos in a certain area are acceptable please ensure that there are some changes between videos uploaded. If videos show limited changes then a number will be rejected, keeping just the videos which show a difference.
  • Aircraft: If shooting from an aircraft please remove or crop any aircraft parts such as wings, wheels etc.
  • Other: We will write a manual reason here.

Keep an eye on this blog and our social media pages as we will be posting tips for improving the quality of your videos. Note that our parts of our system are automated and may accidentally disapprove a video. Please contact us if you would like to discuss the approval process.
