Has anyone published their work on Amazon Prime Video? I'm looking for some tips to make sure the format is correct - as far as I've read Amazon can reject a submission without explaining WHY.

I've just completed all the Closed Captions which are required (Power Director's Caption editor is great to use) but wanted to check frame rates and such.

Advice welcome!

They spell everything out pretty clearly here for framerate, bitrate, formats.....: https://videodirect.amazon.com/home/help?topicId=G202129880

Only somewhat unique requirement I noticed was the file needs to be progressive format, not surprising considering distribution means.

Thanks Jeff.

Yes, I found that document when I was looking at the CC requirements. I took note of the suggestion to use Interra Baton software to perform QC on the video before submitting it but, even as a long-established IT business, have had no luck in contacting them for a trial version (I guess it may be a Corona issue).

Thanks for highlighting the progressive format issue. I guess the only thing I can do is to submit the movie and see whether it is accepted.
