Are there any special documents required to monetize Premium videos?

Due to new regulations the owner of the account must provide a copy of their official ID card or passport. If you are a couple or small operation, we need a document for each person shown in your content. If you operate a larger studio you have to be able to provide, upon request, a proof of age and consent from any of your models.

How can I get my video featured on the Home page?

All videos uploaded to the Free area are eventually featured on the home page. Your video starts at the bottom of the page and will climb higher depending on its popularity with viewers.

Popularity will also affect how long the video stays on a home page, how often your channel is featured and how many regional home pages it will be displayed on.

What is the Channel system?

Channels are upgraded profiles that are eligible for the Content Partner Program. These Channels have the opportunity to upload content for monetization and are also ranked within the XVideos system according to account status and country. Channels can choose to upload to the Free area or to our RED member paysite and monetize their content with multiple options.

What monetization options do you offer?

For Free video uploads, we offer Adshare monetization and for Premium videos we offer Revshare with 3 available monetization options.


This revenue comes from the advertisers who display ads on your Free area video pages. The advertising revenue varies from country to country and greatly depends on how many views your video page receives, as well as the ad that was shown to the viewer and how much the advertiser paid for the ad.

To qualify for Adshare revenue the length of videos must be 10min+ when coming from studio channels and 5min+ when coming from an independent model.


Premium ( RED )
This option is for publishing premium full-length videos on Xvideos RED. It is our paid membership sector where you can showcase a portion of your full membership offer for Xvideos Paying users. The payment system here is based on membership fees. It is a 50% revenue share with our RED channels. 50% is split amongst the channels the member views during the membership to RED. It is a good idea to have regular updates to keep your RED channel subscribers coming back to entice them further into buying your full membership. For more information on this program, click here.

This option enables you to create a unique membership offer with a monthly membership to access only your content. Your membership offer must be competitive with any other membership offer you have on the Internet. The price and amount of content available must match or be better than other offers out there. Once you enable this feature and users join, you have an obligation to honor the membership agreement, and update your membership content regularly, as with any membership site, the members expect updates.

Direct Purchase
This option enables you to sell your videos individually and its a good idea to have all of your Premium Paid content available as Direct Purchase for those customers who prefer to support you and buy your content this way. Once you sell a video it will be unlocked permanently for the buyer even if you remove the video at a later date.
