There are plenty of similiar ones that are obviously inspired, but theres one particular version that copied the dialogue itself and used the exact sentences he used in his preview as a sales pitch

These projects re-initiate the mystery of the pricing system for me, if Envato says the pricing is based on complexity, how for the love of god could you price a ripoff higher than the original? What’s complex in copying someone’s idea? It’s just like selling a rolex replica higher than an original rolex .

That’s all, totally feeling you on this one jakubvejmola.

Here’s a fantasy, thought it would be nice to hear some opinions There are so many ways out there to watch videos (Youtube, vimeo, etc) that are far superior to the Videohive JW Player (or whatever its called) Would there ever be a way to just embed them into the Item description rather than being forced to use the built-in one?

It seems just too buggy from over here (very slow streaming), it could shorten the process instead of compressing an FLV and waiting for it to upload you’d just send a link and wait for it to be approved…

Is it just me or do others here have “issues” with the current player / technology used to stream our previews?

Yes, it works flawlessly – its native unlike the OpenSeaseme script. So Levels, Layer Styles etc are all perfectly saved.

Hey, you have a few techniques, first of all, the ones on the left side or right (the black curtain) could be easily removed with a cc wire removal tool… Or just a surface / smart blur on few adjustment layers with masks.

But hey, you could just watch this video that explains it thoroughly , the guy’s voice might put you off to sleep so have some caffeine or red bull around and you’ll be fine. https://vimeo.com/35486787

^ Of course but what if you’re living in an environment where you have to fight for every cent just to pay your bills and have something to eat? There is no room for “life” and earning money equals survival?
poor people have bills? really?? if you ever go to Mumbai theres a neighbourhood right outside the airport that will answer all your questions. If you think youre even close to being poor = think again. Even for the poorest of them its Oxygen first, then Water, then Food, maybe a shelter… money is the privliege of the wealthy man.

Oh boy, we are the fast food generation, we want it tasty, good, and most important – FAST . Funny you chose the analogy to big macs, because it perfectly illustrates the way you’re thinking… Here’s a different perspective a Big mac meal gets sold once, $5, $10 whatever the price is -> once its sold its gone, they have to produce another one. Your jobs, those nice clients that pay you big $$$ to advertise their toothpaste, car, or ciggerates, they pay you once, sure, it could be a nice amount, but its just like a one night stand – it has 0% potential, you hit it and its out the door. (Remember that teacher at school who said you have a lot of potential, but… -> well, she was right…) Our products, thanks to Envato get sold over and over -> its the same Big Mac deal that could be served infinite amount of times .

and on a side note, there’s much more to life than money.
