VIDEO RESTRICTIONS – VEVO
• VEVO doesn’t accept video uploads from independent artists anymore. They may be upload through the website VYDIA for 20$ (includes unlimited releases for a year)
• Do not include any text on the video or photo (example: Presenting, Directed by, any lower thirds, etc.). Videos with text may be rejected by VEVO and will delay the process of getting your channel live.
• The video should be 1280×720 or 1920×1080, and the photo should be at least 800×800 pixels in a high-resolution jpeg.
• Television Broadcasts Must Have Closed Captioning Data: With few exceptions, all video content that will be aired on television must have EIA 608/708 closed captioning for the hearing impaired as mandated by the FCC. This includes both HD and SD TV shows, films, commercials, live news broadcasts, and Video on Demand (VOD) libraries. Failure to comply with captioning regulates may result in fines, penalties, and/or rejection of your show by a broadcast facility.
• Web Accessibility Also Requires Closed Captioning: In addition to TV closed captioning, virtually all federal agencies and most educational institutions must also add closed captioning to their Web-Based audio and video. New Internet technology now allows users to add closed captioning to Flash, Windows Media, QuickTime Podcast, and Real Player.
