The process is listed below. 

Getting Started

In a few steps, you can initiate the Video Distribution process! To get started, click here.

  1. Fill out the video metadata form
  2. Pay the BASE delivery fee of $95, and (if selected) PLUS partners upgrade fee of $55
  3. Upload your video using WeTransfer or if your video is larger than 2 Gigs, send a Dropbox or Google Drive link to video@symdistro.com

Approval

There is a light approval review process of the videos that are sent to us prior to delivery. You can read more about our content guidelines and technical specs HERE.

*Tip: The videos must NOT have websites, fixed logos, scrolling credits, nudity, violence, or explicit drug use.

We will work with you and give you feedback on your music video so that it meets our partner's specifications. We will not reject the video unless you are unable to make the needed revisions.

You can read more about what types of videos are accepted by our partners HERE.

Once your video is approved, you will receive an approval email to the email address you provided on the video application.

If you have an existing account with Symphonic, you will then see your video's royalty record appear under approved releases. If you do not have an account with Symphonic, one will be created for you and a welcome email sent to the email address you provided on the video application.

Delivery

Once the video has been approved for distribution, we will deliver the video to the partners you have specified.

*Tip: We require all videos to be submitted with a go-live date of at least 3 weeks from the submission date to allow our partners time to ingest, download, process, and upload your video to their platforms. This time frame also gives our marketing team the time need to effectively pitch the video for a feature placement - just like with audio!

Go-Live!

Ahead of your chosen release date, you will receive a new email from us with your release links.

Then, the video will go live on the release date on the partner stores that you have chosen!
