Today we’re rolling out an update to the VideoHive item upload/update process that introduces a solution for audio attribution on Market. This is to help ensure AudioJungle authors are credited for their amazing work. Likewise, it is important for us to know and let authors know - when and if, their items are being used within the marketplace.
Audio tracks used in previews are not referenced consistently on VideoHive item pages and HTML links are not allowed on Elements, which means that attribution is limited to the item and author’s name. This is a complicated experience for customers and negatively impacts discoverability.
Today, we are excited to let you know about some changes to VideoHive attributes that will enable authors to provide information about the audio they have used in their item preview.
How will this work?
We have introduced a new attribute for authors to provide information about audio used in VideoHive item previews.
This means that authors uploading or updating any VideoHive item (including items that are already published) will need to complete the new attributes as shown below,
For the attribute "AudioJungle Items Used in Preview” there are two options:
(1) Add the AudioJungle item ID(s) used in the preview video.
(2) N/A - Not Applicable
For the attribute “External Audio is Used in Preview Video” there are two options:
(1) Yes - use this only if the audio included is not an item available through AudioJungle.
Please update your existing items to ensure that the information we have about audio used is consistent and properly credits the audio author.
How do Authors Update Their Existing Items?
Authors can provide this information via the VideoHive item edit page. You can read all the steps and review the relevant screenshots outlined in this Author Help Center article.
*Please note the addition/editing of the audio attribute does not need to be reviewed if this is the only change submitted. However, all other item edits will be reviewed as per current practice.
In the future we plan to show the related audio information and links on the Elements item page. We will keep you updated on this progress as we continue our work throughout the year.
We hope that this is a positive move in the right direction to make it easier for authors to credit the work they use, and as a result, benefit from the customers that find their work in the marketplace.
We’ll post follow ups to this thread as we receive updates and over the coming week, we’ll be around to answer any general questions you might have (using the daily batch reply approach we’ve taken in the past). Thanks!
