Distributing your video on Amazon Prime
It has been 3 weeks since publishing the films and they have made about $8 so far. Woohoo! Mind you these are shorts between 1 and 5 minutes. I am just glad more people watched them. It seems to represent us, uk, de and jp markets but I have only seen engagement from the US audience mostly.
My experience with youtube has been not positive. I have been asked many times to prove that the music and contents are my own with out any reason. I had to send them copies of the Talent release agreements and such. Now I just don't turn monetization on anymore. Youtube customer service is non existent.
Video Direct has pretty good customer support. My short "Max" got linked to a feature film by the same name and they fixed it within 24 hours.
Are any of you already using Prime for publishing? If so I'd love to hear your experience.
