As of today's date (02/28/19) no studio can post the exact same clip in the exact same format and resolution. We have never allowed this, however we have found many studios have been posting duplicate content on the site which has caused us to re-state this rule and institute a ban on this type of update.
REMEMBER - The new Advanced Search allows customers to see ALL of your clips in EVERY Main Category and all of the Related Categories that you select. You no longer need to post multiple clips to be seen in different categories.
If you have a clip and you wish to post it in a different category then you MUST change either the clip format or resolution in order to post the clip a second time. Ex. You can not post two exact duplicate MP4 1080p clips on the site. Minor changes made to a clip does not constitute a unique clip. Remember, you are allowed the option to change the format and resolution and post up to four (4) versions of one unique clip.
For example, we recommend uploading only the most popular formats which are:
- HD MP4
- HD WMV
- SD MP4
- SD WMV
Please do not violate this rule - if you do, you risk having your clips deleted and your store being added to the Recently Updated page block which will make your store not appear on any of the site's recently updated lists.
What about re-posting old, previously posted clips?
Clip posting rules have always stated that clips can not be removed and re-posted.
All content posted to the site must be new, never before posted clips.
Studios are not allowed to scam the system - meaning we do not allow studios to repost old clip content in an attempt to have a clip featured more than once in the "Recently Updated" lists.
