Does anybody know what the current average inspection time is for videos?


I have several videos in the inspection-queue. Uploaded up to 18 days ago. Seems a bit steep in comparison to the image-inspection times...

Best regards, David

Close to 2 months for non-exclusives....pretty typical here at iStock. Every once in a blue moon they do a "surge" and everyone gets excited that things are on the up and up but...plan on 6-8 weeks for non-exclusives.

I'm waiting for 2 weeks. You're lucky and the inspection logic is terrible.

Well, I've uploaded these files on 27 september so I guess it would be your time soon ! It is mainly surprising to have such a big serie inspected on a saturday !

I thought they were inspected in the same day Sorry.
I've experienced such things for editorial images where normally inspection takes more than a week.

When / if you become exclusive here, that will go some way towards motivating inspectors to review your work more quickly.

How long would a submitter have to wait if EXCLUSIVE?

I don't believe that being exclusive would increase my sales enough. Nothing in the forums indicate as much.

7 weeks + 2 days ... kind of silly actually and not very respectful IMHO. What? Only in Canada you say?


In Thailand (where I am presently) it is always tomorrow so when tomorrow comes it is tomorrow again and again. smile No big deal because nothing happens on time or when you would like.


Not to worry iStock. Take your time. No rush.

Was told by CR that the queue extends from 8 to 10 weeks now. Files submitted today won't be inspected until January 28th.
