What can you use the app for?

Revver is a video site; however unlike many of the others it’s possible to make money from your videos rather than just gaining yourself a reputation. You can make your films, upload them to the site and then you can get paid for them. When you upload a video to the site the software automatically analyses it and attaches a relevant advert to it. The site calls this Revverizing the video. The adverts are attached to the video and are not separate, this means that wherever your video is displayed, even if it’s embedded on a blog or website you will still be able to get paid. The more people that see your video, the more that see the advert and so the more money that you can earn. It’s easy to look at the success of your videos by looking at your account page, this shows you how many times people have watched the video, and whether you’re earning any money from it. You can also earn money from sharing other people’s videos.
