One of the benefits of selecting a Vydia Plan is having the option to monetize your content. In order to start monetizing, users must create a release on their dashboard and select Vydia Content Protection. By turning monetization on, users can earn revenue from views and advertisements that are displayed alongside their content. Currently, monetization is available through YouTube and Vevo.
Vydia Content Protection technology allows users to be more in control of their content across multiple platforms. Choose policies (based on platform availability) to Monetize, Block, or Permit your content to be uploaded by 3rd parties on social platforms like YouTube and Facebook. Any content that you exclusively own the rights to is eligible for Vydia Content Protection. This includes the visual, sound recording, and/or composition rights.
Yes, though you will grant Vydia a license to monetize/protect your content, you will retain 100% ownership of your copyrights.
Vydia offers users complete transparency on their earnings and video performance through the analytics on their dashboard. These analytics include important data like Total Earnings and User-Generated Content (UGC) claims and can be accessed on Vydia’s desktop or mobile application.
Currently, over 200,000 video creators, including multi-platinum artists, social influencers, independent musicians and entertainment outlets, use the Vydia Platform worldwide. Some of the major artists we have worked with include Lil Xan, Boonk, Derez Deshon, BandGang, Bhad Bhabie, Jay Critch, Daniel Caesar, RiceGum, Agnez Mo, and more!
Once users grant authorization to connect their social networks, Vydia will collect data on their behalf in order to provide each user the ability to streamline multi-network publishing and access a centralized analytics dashboard. This analytics dashboard will display and analyze key metrics including content performance, video engagement, revenue generated, and any user-generated content (UGC) claims. Vydia will be able to use this information to provide creators with actionable insights about how to improve their content’s performance. Users can access their analytics on the web application here.
Creators may also request changes by contacting us at firstname.lastname@example.org. They can request to update, correct or delete their information as needed.

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.

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.

Front page promotion is an editorial decision made by Vevo and is selected on a case-to-case basis. Vevo has weekly meetings to determine which videos they would like to use for promotion. After your Vevo channel is created, if you’re interested in this type of promotion, please fill out a Support Ticket here to be considered.
