Symphonic is proud to be a provider that works with artists to expand their brand through video. Not only do we focus on Video Distribution, but we can also help create the video content as well.
We want to help artists and record labels to distribute solid and cutting-edge video content at a price that is as cost affordable as it is easy to use.
Video distribution is not only limited to Symphonic clients; we welcome ALL artists and labels who have video distribution needs. You also can choose specific partners for delivery during the video submission process if you do not need a particular platform. We can also deliver back catalog music videos; our video distribution service is not limited to new music video releases.

Official video streams from Facebook will also be added to the data that informs the Billboard Hot 100, Billboard 200, Artist 100, and Billboard Global 200 charts and all other Billboard US and global charts that include streaming data. Please note that Premium Music Videos (PMVs) are only available in the US. Facebook video plays will be categorized as ad-supported streams and represent activity solely within the US. In addition, Facebook videos will be included in the 'Others' data bucket under Video within MRC Data’s Music Connect platform.
If you or your artist(s) have opted-in but are currently not auto-sharing new videos to their feed, now is a great time to activate this feature. This is a great way to drive additional visibility and discovery for your music videos on Facebook.

Vimeo – Videos will be located under Symphonic’s official Vimeo channel for more potential exposure. Vimeo is an American video hosting, sharing, and services platform headquartered in New York City. Vimeo operates on an ad-free basis and instead derives revenue by providing subscription plans for businesses and video content producers and offering software as a service (SaaS) with video creation, editing, and broadcasting tools, enterprise software solutions, as well as the means for video professionals to connect with clients and other professionals. Vimeo focuses on the delivery of high-definition video across a range of devices.
A curated experience means that we'll deliver content, and their team, whether it be human or algorithmic, will preview and decide if the content will make it onto their platform. Symphonic does not process refunds if a video is not selected for placement on these platforms.
