How does it work?
We believe that artists and content creators must be fairly compensated for their effort and need to receive fixed income to help them live a stable life. A standard route to generate survival revenues / investment income for future projects always puts a smile on a true artist's face and lets you breathe easy.
There is sufficient uncertainity in the world - even more so now after COVID - and your revenues at least need to be something within your own control
That's why we're here - Talkies.tv gives you a fixed earning per view irrespective of circumstances, which then lets us stabilize your income from video views.
Can I upload my youtube stuff?
As long as it's your own content, you are free to put it up here. It would be nice if you don't re-use someone else's content - because that risks a DMCA takedown notice and may affect your revenues.What if I make put up someone else's video?
There's a chance we'll need to take it down in response to a DMCA takedown notice. Your account as a whole may be at risk, since we need to answer the lawyers and cannot cover you beyond a point.Youtube / Vimeo / etc has xyzzy feature. Can I do that here?
There are many snazzy features that other video sharing services offer - we may not have all of them on our platform at this time. We're happy to engage in conversation and add more features for you, just reach out to us on firstname.lastname@example.orgWhat videos are safe to upload?
Non-copyrighted, family friendly videos are preferred. Do NOT upload adult, illegal, gambling, violence, racism or hate related materials as these will be taken down and your account may be penalized.Will I get paid if I watch my own stuff?
We don't plan to ban users. Please feel free to watch; it's just that if a view is valid or not is determined by our investor's AI tool and not by us manually.What is the minimum video length / maximum video length?
We have currently capped the maximum length at 30 minutes and a minimum length of 10 seconds would be nice. This is not forced - so you can actually upload shorter videos as well.When will I get paid?
ALL views count, even those before monetization is enabled. So you will get paid when your total accrual touches $100. Payout is via Paypal or Bank Wire. We have a UPI option if you're in India.Are there charges for payouts?
For Paypal there aren't, but there may be a cost for the bank wire depending on your country. UPI in India is free at this time (early 2021).How much money will I make?

Revenues Talkies.tv vs YouTube
Note: This estimates the money that can be obtained from a YouTube video based on the number of views and the RPM (Revenue per 1000 Impressions). The default CPM range is from $1.36 to $3.40 per 1000 views for Youtube.
It is important to note that this RPM range is AFTER the cut Google takes from Adsense earnings which is 45%. So RPM = CPM - 45% Thus the total earnings on YouTube is less than you'd expect.
Note: Talkies.tv pays an exact $5.00 per 1000 views (minus your own views on your own videos), so the result is much more rational and predictable.
