Why Dreamstime don't sell video footage?

posted on 25th of august, 2011

Yes, is it a good question, no? ;-)

There are many (and many!) microstock websites, but how many sell video footage? I only know three of them!

It's a really less offer for customers... and for contributors! Personnally, I make some little "real" video footages with my Nikon and some "basic" digital footages (computer calculated).

And now, it's easier for lots of contributors, because 90% of the SLR camera can make video footage.

I think, it's really strange that Dreamstime doesn't offer footage to sale..

I can't sell it here, but when I sell one footage, commission are really higher than an image!

Maybe there isn't much of a market, although my local news seems to use a lot of stock footage (images and video). It would be nice from a contributor standpoint to upload video clips.

About me

Hi ! I’m Lionel, my profession and my passion are computer, wider! Because it has been over 30 years that I practice (yes!), I fell into it when I was young teenager… But I don’t stop at computer, even if it’s my job now, I’m very curious, I love reading books of all kinds (books, technology, comics, magazines, novels), see films, many films (rather than action, science fiction, fantasy), travel to see the world and its beauty, to see exhibitions of all kinds, create images (photos and 3D) … In short, I love to do many artistic things !
