Example

If your application made the following requests in a particular month:

  • 1000 label detection requests, each containing a 1m22s long video.
  • 100 explicit detection requests, each containing a 1m15s long video.

Your cost would be:

  • Each request is 1m22s or 82 seconds long and there are 1000 such requests. Calculating in minutes, we have (82*1000)/60 = 1366.66 minutes of label detection. The first 1000 minutes are free; the additional 366.66 minutes cost $0.10 per minute, totaling $36.67.

  • Each request is 1m15s or 75 seconds long and there are 100 such requests. Calculating in minutes, we have (75*100)/60 = 125 minutes of explicit content detection. The first 1000 minutes per month are free, so there's no charge for these requests.

Total cost is $36.67.
