Yes is a complex topic... So grab a coffee, put on your headphones and open your mind 😅.

First, we recommend you to read What are native videos vs. dynamic videos?, to fully understand the differences between Native and Dynamic videos.

Due to the nature of the Dynamic Videos, we can't calculate how many dynamic exports you will be doing during Build Time.

Every time you change a set of variables dynamically through the URL it is going to be like a new export and that can occur in real-time. So that's why we can't predict while you are building it.

So, How do we calculate them?

We count any new dynamic URL as a dynamic export, Here are a few examples.

Example 1

You build 1 base video and then send it to a list of 4 subscribers using their names as part of the video.

https://woxo.tech/reach/A3fiGlnlQO?name=Ava
https://woxo.tech/reach/A3fiGlnlQO?name=Alex
https://woxo.tech/reach/A3fiGlnlQO?name=Rosse
https://woxo.tech/reach/A3fiGlnlQO?name=Diana

So this will count as 4 dynamic exports.

Example 2

You build 1 base video and send it to a list of 1000 subscribers without any personalization

https://woxo.tech/reach/A3fiGlnlQO?greetings=Hello
https://woxo.tech/reach/A3fiGlnlQO?greetings=Hello
https://woxo.tech/reach/A3fiGlnlQO?greetings=Hello
https://woxo.tech/reach/A3fiGlnlQO?greetings=Hello
etc

Even if the whole list opens the video, this will count as just 1 dynamic export.

Example 3

You build 1 base video and send it to a list of 1000 subscribers dynamically changing a parameter based on people's language.

https://woxo.tech/reach/A3fiGlnlQO?greetings=Hello
https://woxo.tech/reach/A3fiGlnlQO?greetings=Bonjour
https://woxo.tech/reach/A3fiGlnlQO?greetings=Aloha
https://woxo.tech/reach/A3fiGlnlQO?greetings=Ciao
etc

Even if the whole list opens the video, So this will count as just 4 dynamic exports.

Differences between Dynamic Exports and Views

Views -> every time the video landing page loads it counts as a view. So if you send the same video to 4000 subscribers and each of them opens it, it will count as 4000 views towards your quota.

Dynamic Exports -> does not matter how many times the landing page of a given video load, as long as it has the same URL it will count just as 1 export.

We believe that using the Dynamic Exports for the quota limits calculations will give you a lot more flexibility than using views or clicks. What do guys think?

Where can we see our Dynamic Exports usage?
