Publishing HD video to Amazon Video On Demand (VOD)
on Aug 21, 2013 at 1:51:48 am


I'm trying to figure out how to publish a 30 minute video program to Amazon VOD, but the project is HD and I want to be able to publish it there in HD. Do you have any thoughts about how to get it on Amazon VOD?

I found that Amazon CreateSpace will allow you to publish on demand video products, but they can only do SD and want to import the video off of a DVD and then transcode it. Blech! ;-)

I have seen products from other self published video producers available in HD on their VOD platform, so I know it is possible some way, although the ones I have seen are probable competitors so I haven't asked them directly. Amazon reps I have managed to contact have no idea how I would need to do it.

I am also aware of Distribber and I will contact them, but I'm not sure if they submit HD to Amazon or just SD. Also, I'd prefer to submit directly to Amazon if possible as I am confident I could handle all of the technical requirements.

Do you happen to have any information or suggestions about how to do it or who to contact. Amazon can be almost as hard to get answers from as Google! ;-)

Thanks in advance!
