We always look for the best videos to feature on the feed screen which is visible to all the users. If your videos don't make it to the Feed Screen, then it might be because of:

  • Poor video quality: these include inadequate lighting, poor audibility, and shaky videos.
  • Usage of harsh words, rude comments, or targeting a particular cultural/ racial background. Rizzle is a positive community and we want our users to be respectful and considerate about sentiments.
  • If there is obscenity, vulgarity, substance abuse or excessive swearing in the video.

If it is your own composition & doesn't violate copyright then it isn't infringement. But if you use a copyrighted artwork to sing or play the music in the background of your video then it falls under infringement.

Why there's no option to Delete the Channel?

Once you delete your Channel you'll lose all your Videos and the Sponsorship details. So, considering that in future you might want your Channel back we have given you the option to Archive and not Delete.

Yes. You can raise a request to change your Channel's name by filling this form. Our team will follow through on your request after reviewing it. Please make sure your proposed Channel name is not greater than 24 characters.
It will take at least 24 hours to 48 hours for the Channel's name change to reflect on the app, as our team will review your request and process it accordingly.
We’re happy to help you with changing your Channel’s name. But your request may be rejected if:
  • Your Channel has sponsors (even if it’s 1)
