  • Videos should not contain adult,erotic,violent or hateful content. That means your videos should be suitable for all kinds of audiences.
  • Too short or too long videos may not qualify. So try to make your videos that run between 20 seconds and 6 minutes long(recommended)
  • Before submitting you videos, do maintain a backup of your video. These hosting companies cannot guarantee to return your videos.
  • Please do not submit videos that are not owned by you.

What if my video is not accepted? Don’t get discouraged if your video is not accepted. Try to reproduce your videos to meet the desired criteria. Watch videos of others and learn from them. Keep trying and your videos will be accepted hopefully.
