I made some videos, but I read that IStock first want to see a so-called low-resolution proxy file.


What is the easiest way to produce those out of the original file?

iStock no longer accepts low-resolution proxy file. You only need to upload the fill sized video.

Yeah, if you're applying for video, then the specs for the three sample videos are different that of the regular uploads. But once you're accepted, you don't need to upload proxy videos anymore, just the full sized video.

I,m trying to upload three sample videos. I transferred the .mov files into mp4's, made sample jpegs of each one.


The mp4 has to be uploaded together with the jpeg. But i constantly get errors. Now is the sample jpeg not ok, so i have to start uploading again...very time consuming with 100Kb max upload.

Look through the forum, there are a lot of threads about uploading the sample videos.

The video's height must be between 240 and 1080 pixels.

The one setting that never seems to fail for video application samples is:


640x360 pixels


.mp4 file compressed with the h.264 codec.

After compressing them with the MPEG-4 codec with standard quality (Powerdirector), the uploading went without problems. Got 3 files between 10-13Mb.
