New Video Platform Amazon Video Direct

If you didn’t hear already there is a new video platform in town called Amazon Video Direct. I signed up for an account at https://videodirect.amazon.com. The process was relatively quick, but you need to enter payment and tax information in order to start since Amazon will pay for content you upload via advertising. I uploaded the video worldwide checking two options. Free with Prime or free to view with advertisement pre roll. All the info I entered was pretty standard, but I did get hung up on closed captioning. In order to distribute your video content on Amazon Video Direct you must upload a file with the audio transcribed. Amazon suggests companies that will do this for you, I went ahead and got one done at Fiverr. The video I uploaded is now ‘pending’ and has been for a couple days. The first video had the wrong transcription format so it was rejected. Hoping Amazon Video Direct takes off.
