Found my answer at http://videohive.net/licenses/faq

While it’s true that I’d get a better quality file, valid point, but I especially need them at this low file size as the page will get high traffic and I also don’t wish to cripple mobile visitors without wifi. The previews are well compressed to about <10MB size and a normal resolution which is what I need. If I had infinite free time I’d buy them and add my own watermark but for now ain’t nobody got time for that ;)

I already found 9 videos I’ll showcase and set my page up. Mods please lock the thread as it’s no longer relevant.

For a preview page of a WP product of mine, I’m looking to showcase around 5 stock videos. My question is, can I download and use the watermarked version? Of course with a link back to the product page. I have no problem purchasing but I’d rather not show them unwatermarked as-is because they would be prone to theft that way I guess. Also I believe there is a convention where TF/CC authors can use watermarked AJ/VH items, just not sure about the exact usage terms. Like themes use VH videos with watermark in their video player feature previews. In my case it would be called “self-hosted videos opened in a lightbox video player” or similar, so the videos would be hosted by me.

Oh you are also welcome to nominate some files if this is allowed.

The top sellers page is a bit interesting now that the trending triangle is applied to them as well, it covers a good bit of the thumbnail.. Makes us rethink the thumbnails to accommodate a possible trending ribbon? I mean it now reads like “lider revolution” or “inja popups” or “able rate shipping” etc :)

It’s confusing and I don’t get the new fee structure at all. The item price remains the same. I still get the same %. The buyer still gets the item with an unchanged price. Who cares how is Envato’s % is split up and how it’s named? :) They do whatever they want with it. The fraction % numbers are also very confusing. Why does the example say ‘a $100’ item and then it says ‘item price $80’. An $100 item is a $100 item and costs $100, the $80 is never there. I don’t understand it but whatever :) Looking forward to the shopping cart feature!

Affiliates still get envato’s cut (30%) right?

Does this remove the Envato preview bar automatically?

Just updated one of my plugins to the new Facebook API 2.1, but yet I added the 2.0 tag to the item – is that correct?
I did so. I suppose Envato will perform a global check with that key

I also did it like that.

Hire an accountant or pay full tax rate :)
Like I said, I’ve no problems paying my taxes…. I’m just not sure how this works as Envato has yet to point me towards a Tax Form they way other sites do which is part of my main question?

Dreamstime is based Nashville,TN, US companies normally pay out affiliate cash with either tax withholding or requiring you to fill out a form. Envato is more offshore than that, it’s not an American company.
