Its kind of like a store clerk ringing the door bell on a house and asking for the receipt for the food that’s on the dinner table.
This is a fair analogy I think, Jeff. It’s really why I’ve been reluctant to jump in. Matt, you have been using adrev for 3 years? Which puts you about the time you started on AudioJungle. I don’t know where else you have sold but you’ve had good success here and this Adrev has served you well because you have been the store clerk retaining the receipt immediately after a sale from your very first sale.
Basically, people like Jeff and I are pushing back a little out of fear. Why would we want to upset buyers by asking for a receipt 3 years after a purchase? It feels a little irresponsible on our part that we didn’t jump in as early as you did, and they have to find their license for us because of … us? But then, better 3 years back than 15 years back, right? Might as well start now than even further down the line?
But I guess if it hasn’t been a problem like you said Matt then maybe the pros out weigh the one con. I know I would be annoyed though. What if I made a video and purchased sfx/music files from 5 different locations and right when I uploaded the video I have to fill out 5 forms? It would be a pain in @$$. I would be like “get your crap off my video!”
Yes, I’m curious about this too. It sounds like you haven’t had many issues, Matt? I suppose if enough composes start using these services, it’ll become an expected practice. It’s just, like you said Matt, change… and it’s scary.
Alas, I’m still waiting for a low-selling song I uploaded to Adrev a couple months ago to start supplying data to see how it works.
Edit: Matt, I see you were writing a response as I was and you answered some things. Thanks. Good stuff to keep discussing, though. Thanks for sharing your experience.

michellerobinson saidAwesome! Thank you
Handling the input of multiple versions is something that needs a bit more time and consideration to do it properly but we are working on a quick, interim solution which might be something like – allowing authors to enter multiple track/clip lengths in the length field (comma separated) so the search can pick up all versions.
Phew that’s all I need…......running a marathon, trying not to sprint and now I have a mountain to climb. Whatever next – I am trying to negogiate a jungle and I presume an ocean to swim!
Good luck to all.
Graham, your persistence amazes me. You’ll be the fittest one by the time we all die off…
Whoa… what happens when we all die off….??
...and there he goes, off on his own, never to be reached again. They grow up so fast, ya know?
Very inspiring! Thanks for sharing.
Wow, sorry for just now jumping into this thread, Jeff. I’ve been gone for a few days. I’m so happy you won! And of course I voted for you. It was a no-brainer! and what a wonderful pro-community gesture. But don’t buy mine or I’ll buy yours so hard it won’t even be funny.
By the way, I never got an email or saw any posts about the winners. Not sure how I missed that. Anybody want to help me out and point me in the right direction? Thanks!
You don’t need to worry about the other libraries – the only thing that appears on a user’s YouTube account is: ‘Third Party Match detected. Name of track – Authour. Administered by AdRev’.
So, what happens with a track you changed the name of? Some clients may have bought it as a different name than the new name that you now provide to AdRev. Does this present a problem?
