One of the benefits of selecting a Vydia Plan is having the option to monetize your audio and video content. By selecting a monetize policy, content containing your works will be claimed as yours, and subsequently have revenue generated from audience-appropriate advertisements being placed alongside the claimed content.
Please be advised that by selecting a monetize policy, content that you upload on your social media platforms will be claimed as well in order to apply your monetization policy. Also, note that selecting a monetize policy does not guarantee that revenue will be generated; but rather enables the option for ads to generate revenue.
In order to start monetizing, users must create a release on their ‘My Content’ dashboard and select ‘Monetize’ as the protection policy across YouTube, Facebook, and Instagram.
Similar to an ISRC, a Universal Product Code (UPC) is a unique 12 character code that identifies unique products like CDs and digital albums. ISRC’s identify individual tracks while UPC’s identify the complete album. As a Vydia user, if you do not have UPCs for your content, we can create them for you at no additional cost.
Please note you will need both an ISRC and UPC to deliver your audio and video content to streaming platforms.
Vevo has strict standards for the videos that appear on their platform. To accommodate, every video must be manually reviewed. This process can take between 5-7 business days. However, due to the number of requests, the wait for Vevo acceptances can take longer.
In order to update your Vevo channel, please create a support ticket here. When making your requests, list all edits you would like made to your Vevo channel with any corresponding files. Please be mindful that we can only make one set of bulk changes for a Vevo channel per month, so be precise with your edit requests. Image guidelines for channel artwork may look different on desktop, mobile, and TV displays. Click here to make sure you meet Vevo’s artwork specs.
The International Standard Recording Code (ISRC) is a unique, 12 character code that identifies specific sound recordings and/or music videos. As a Vydia user, if you do not have ISRCs for your content, we can create them for you at no additional cost. For more information on ISRCs, please click here.
From platform upload to distribution, our technology provides the digital infrastructure needed to efficiently package and deliver your video content to major video streaming platforms and social networks. To get started, check out our Video Distribution walkthrough guide.
Applying for a Vevo channel is one of our premium services that are available with the Vydia Plan. If you already have a Vydia Plan, you can create a release, select “Deliver To Premium Partners’, and choose Vevo as your video’s destination.
Once the release is complete, it will be manually reviewed to ensure that Vevo requirements are met, which may include certain metrics such as social media following, video performance, the authenticity of engagement, and quality of content. To learn more about this process, check out our blog!
Vydia’s technology streamlines content and metadata ingestion to ensure it meets partner specifications. In order to further expedite this process, before you distribute your next video, be sure you have the following:
- High-definition .mov or .mp4 file type (at least 1920×1080 or 1280×720 or higher).
- ISRC (Don’t have one? You will be prompted to create a unique ISRC within the video distribution workflow.)
- UPC (Don’t have one? You will be prompted to create a unique UPC within the video distribution workflow.)
Expand your global reach with expedited delivery to the industry’s leading video destinations. From one convenient platform, our video distribution services will allow you to:
- Deliver to premium video partners including iTunes, Apple Music, Vevo, etc.
- Publish to connected social networks including your YouTube channel, Facebook page, Twitter account, etc.
Please note that you must meet certain partner standards to distribute video content to the platforms mentioned above.
How long will it take to deliver my video to premium video partners (i.e. iTunes/Apple Music, Vevo, etc.)?
Audio distribution may take up to 5 business days to be reviewed, accepted, and delivered to partner platforms. You will receive a notification once your audio content is live. To make sure your content is available for playlist consideration, please schedule your audio release at least 4 weeks before the launch date. Please note that playlist support is not guaranteed.
Once your video has been delivered to a streaming platform, you must contact Vydia Support or your dedicated account representative for any additional changes.
No, video distribution is included in Vydia Plans.
Once we receive earnings statements from our partner platforms, we will ingest them into our system. Partner platforms have various schedules for statements and payouts. Typically, it can take anywhere from 1 to 4 months (depending on the revenue source) before earned revenue is made available to you.
The earnings you accrue can either be used as a credit towards any services on our site or paid out to you directly once you register with our payment system, Tipalti. Please note that you are only eligible to sign up with Tipalti once you accumulate a minimum balance of $35, verify your email addresses, connect at least one valid social media account. Once you have successfully onboarded with Tipalti, payments will automatically be sent to you on a monthly basis around mid-month starting the next applicable pay period.
For questions on Tipalti, please visit for Tipalti FAQ page here. Please note, all payments are subject to Vydia’s approval process. Vydia reserves the right to withhold earnings that do not comply with Domestic/International banking regulations as well as Vydia’s Terms and Conditions.
No. Vydia has a distribution partnership with Vevo which allows any artist to request their own Vevo channel. In order to adhere to Vevo’s quality guidelines, requests will then be manually reviewed for acceptance.
Vydia works directly with the Vevo team to make any and all changes to your account. No login to the Vevo platform is available. In order to request an edit, please contact Vydia Support here. Once created, requests for your Vevo channel are limited to one batch of edit requests per month; so please make sure that you are precise in your Vevo edit requests!
If approved, your Vevo account name is based on your artist name. You can find out if the artist’s name is already being used by searching for it on Vevo. If there is a problem with the artist name you submit, we will contact you for another option.

Yes. Users are able to create a release and submit new videos to be published on their pre-existing Vevo channel.
Vevo is intended for music content only. However, if you have other video content such as webisodes, vlogs, or live streams you can upload them onto the Vydia Platform to be published, protected, and monetized across different social media channels.
Our premium video partners (including Vevo, Apple, and Tidal), do not allow any beginning or end text slates and logos, lower third corner text (also known as chyrons), social media names/logos, and website URLs. If there are graphics and text used in a creative way as part of the video, then it is possible it will be allowed. Our Content Operations team will notify you of any additional edits once the review process is complete.
