Videos Creator always looks for a good platform to upload their hard work so that they can generate enough revenue from those. Let us dig a little for the features of some good quality websites. So that the new creators who are looking confused and looking for the best option,
It is highly recommended to go through the whole article for pros and cons to make up the mind and choose the appropriate one for your videos.
Metacafe has a big collection of videos like which cover up a large variety Music, Short Movies, Sports, Funny video etc are a few examples. A viewer can go through a good quality of videos, so it meant the uploader has to submit some good quality videos only. Metacafe allows the users to upload good resolution videos up to 1080 pixels, it won't accept beyond that. Almost any video formats are allowed to be uploaded like MP4, AVI, MPEG, MKV, WMV, MOV, ASF, 3GP etc.
1. More than 1080 pixels cannot be uploaded
2. The duration of the video cannot exceed 10 min
3. Earning money through Metacafe can only be possible after reaching 20,000 views for a video. So after 20 k views, the uploader will be benefited for their videos. After 20k views, which is not a small factor, every thousand views will generate 5$ per thousand views.
For an instance, if the uploader gets 21k views then he gets 5$, and if 22k more 5$ will be added, and this process keeps going. Generating 5$ for 1000 views are great, a lot of earnings can be done through it, but yes a little disappointment initially as the views to be cross 20k. If getting 20K views are not a big factor for the creator, then Metacafe is highly recommended.
In Daily Motion we can create Title, Tags,Description and playlists easily. All the video formats just like Metacafe are being accepted in DailyMotion as well. And moreover videos with any resolution can be uploaded, even 4k videos, which is very good for the viewer's point of view.
The videos which are below 60 min duration can be uploaded.
video file size should not exceed more than 2GB
Now the Main point for the video creators earnings :
1. Advertise revenue can be generated
2. Paid content can be uploaded
3. If you have a website, and you want to Embed the Daily motion videos on your website, and the traffic you get on your website and views the videos, then you will get the commission. Which is quite decent enough, as you can have a double source of income. From the Metacafe website and also from your website.
It's a very professional video platform, only HD videos are being allowed to be upload by the creators. So we won't be able to see the low-quality videos at all, again which is a very good thing for the viewer's point. All the well-known videos formats are allowed to be showcased in Vimeo. A video of 1080 px resolutions can be accepted. Which are quite decent enough to watch.
The creator of the videos needs to opt for some plans in Vimeo to upload videos. Follow are the plans -
a) Vimeo Basic - 500Mb / week, up to 25 GB / year can be uploaded, you cannot earn after opting for this free plan (Vimeo Basic).
b) Vimeo Plus - 5GB / week, up to 250 GB / year can be uploaded, you cannot earn even after opting this plan (Vimeo Plus), for which subscription 59.95$ has been paid for a year.
Which doesn't sounds good for any creator of the video?
c) Vimeo Pro - 20GB / week, up to 1TB / year can be uploaded, earnings can be done in this plan, for subscribing to this 199$ to be paid a year.
YouTube is the Most Popular website for videos. In fact, it is in #2 in Alexa Global Ranking.
We can upload a video with any size, duration, and quality. Which are very favorable for the video creators, and also for the viewers as they can watch full-length movies as well.
