The meaning of ‘Rumbling’

Hey everyone, Wojtek here from Rumble. Many people were inquiring, so I felt I should provide a little explanation on what “Rumbling” means on your Pending Videos page.

After uploading and selecting your licensing option, videos get placed into a queue. In this queue an automated technology dubbed ‘Rumble Rank’ makes a decision on the value and virality of the content you uploaded, and if our Rumble Rank ‘likes’ the content, it will be sent to our newsroom for a final decision and audit. If for any reason Rumble Rank and/or editors are not certain (possibly due to not enough data) but they see potential value in your content,it will get placed into a separate queue called ‘Rumbling’. At this point your chances are pretty good that it will get purchased/approved, but still not certain. Most people can expect a reply within two weeks while rumbling, in some cases this can take longer.

Some tips to help get your video noticed, or noticed faster:

  1. Film in landscape mode (hold your phone sideways)
  2. Upload the highest quality video you can.
  3. Cut any lead up / part of the clip that is not needed.
  4. Tell your friends to watch your clip on Rumble

I hope that helps. Feel free to leave comments and questions below, and maybe on my next post I’ll address it 🙂

 

Introducing Weekly Payouts at Rumble

Weekly Payouts on Rumble

After receiving feedback over the last 60 days, we have decided to ramp up our payout frequencies. We are now moving Rumble to a weekly payout schedule, every Friday as long as you make a withdrawal request in the previous week. Let me explain with further clarity inflatable sumo suits.

Example 1:

  1. You make a withdrawal request of $100 on Tuesday.
  2. You will be paid on the following Friday, 10 days later.

Example 2:

  1. You make a withdrawal request of $100 on Friday.
  2. You will be paid on the following Friday, 7 days later

If the Friday lands on a holiday in Canada, the payout will be issued on the following business day. It is very important to note that you MUST make a withdrawal request. If you fail to do so, you will not receive payment and your balance will accumulate. The minimum payout threshold will stay at $50.

Additional payout restrictions:

  • You must have sold at least one piece of content in the last 12 monthsxiao cheng
  • You must be able to accept Paypal or Check

 

Rumble Updates Windows 8.1 App

Over the holidays, a part of our Rumble team was hard at work! They managed to push live the latest version of our Windows 8 desktop application. If you are using your surface, desktop or any windows tablet, you will definitely like what our latest update has too offer.

In addition to fixing bugs, the rumble team created a new user interface, added new categories of video content, and streamlined the uploading process. Most importantly, the tweak to the user interface was the most important update in our 4th version of our Windows application. You’ll notice the design uses  the universal elements seen on our website, and maintains the full overall look and feel of rumble. We also made sure the upload process mimicked the web version, creating less confusion for all of our video creators.

In addition, we want to give a big thanks to the folks at Microsoft for helping us in the development process of this application. Their team really helped us get this app through the door and out to all of our Windows users.
