Other stock footage marketplaces offer much more variety because they allow each author to upload many similar items, so there’s a higher chance you find exactly what you need. On videohive that isn’t allowed, or when it is, we need to bundle videos together, which further drives the prices down, which is a bad deal for the author. But since other marketplaces sell royalty free and envato is license based, I think the price gap will always be like this…
Not sure if this is self promotion as it’s answering to a specific request, but your example reminded me of these items of mine: http://videohive.net/search?utf8=%E2%9C%93&term=euphoric+dream
What ToivoMedia said. Collections could be much more useful… it would be nice to able to feature a collection on our profile page, just like an item. Also being able to follow collections would be great for authors that have many categories of files, because buyers could choose which collections (categories) to follow, instead of being updated of items they might not care about.
I think its a fantastic idea, would like to know tough how do you reuse it after deployment.
From their FAQ: “If your Hövding has been in an accident, it can’t be used again.”
Welp… also, what if it punctures on impact? And what about hot weather… it must look/feel a bit like a scarf, no? Interesting idea but looks too much like a fashion item… for the 400€ they ask for you could buy a handful of great regular helmets.
A small request:
Right now the “Homepage Image” occupies a lot of space (590×242px) which links to nowhere. I’d rather use that space to display thumbnails/links to my items so I’d like to suggest that this “Homepage Image” (along with the “Profile Heading”) could be optional, so authors could better design the content of their profile page.
Small bug? That small arrow/triangle pointing to the current marketplace appears blurry on Firefox, but OK (sharp) on IE.
Cool! Change is nice…
Looks good, just in time for Christmas
Cool idea. For videohive authors it frees up space on the description, audiojungle authors can track where their files are being used, and for buyers it seems straightforward and quick if they want to purchase the audio right away. However, to me, videohive has bigger problems than lack of integration with other marketplaces. I like your idea but I’d rather see devstaff efforts looking at other long lasting issues on videohive first.
