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. 

Yes. Though you will grant Vydia an exclusive license to monetize/protect your content, you will retain 100% ownership of your copyrights. While you retain full ownership of your content, you cannot grant the same rights to other parties. Granting rights to multiple parties may cause a conflict and will not result in additional earnings. In fact, doing so may put your earnings on hold until the conflict is resolved.

YouTube Ownership Conflicts occur when another YouTube partner attempts to claim ownership over an exclusive copyright Vydia is also administering for you. Ownership Conflicts put your content’s revenue on hold for as long as the conflicting party’s ownership remains, so it is important to resolve these conflicts as soon as possible.

We recommend reaching out to the conflicting party to request that they remove ownership of the assets in conflict.

Based on content strategy goals, the Vydia platform enables creators to select different protection policies for how they want their content managed on Facebook, Instagram, and YouTube. The 4 protection policies include:

  • Monetize– selected platforms may display advertisements with the content, which generates revenue that Vydia collects on behalf of the rights holder.
  • Block– selected platforms will prevent users from uploading protected content.
  • Permit– selected platforms will allow users to upload content that contains copyrighted material. Performance metrics, like views, will be tracked; However, no revenue will be generated.
  • No Policy– Vydia will not claim copyrighted content on selected platforms.

*Please note that claims will be made on all content uploads, including the creator or rights holder’s own uploads in order to apply the selected policy.

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.)

An Artwork Video is made up of a sound recording and its corresponding album art. You can use Vydia’s Artwork Video Creator to make a video file ready for delivery to your YouTube channel. This will make your audio track available for playback regardless of whether there is an associated official music video that has been produced.

Vydia’s Artwork Video Creator is a tool that will guide you through how to generate an artwork video using Vydia’s technology.

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.
