What exactly were the terms of our $5-bet, doru and motionvids?
It would be too ironic if I would be responsible myself for losing it, by asking Eric to do it as a script.But I’d say as long as there is nothing official, I win
I agree. No terms we’re really set but we sort of agreed upon that the feature needed to be official and has to be implemented by Envato.
And I’m really starting to think that I can give you those $5 straight away. But let’s just wait it out till the end of the year!
After that we can do a new bet regarding this:
Will the staff be able to leave an official reply to this thread before the year 8971?
Thanks Plac and felt. I really appreciate both your efforts in drawing attention to this feature and I’d really hoped your reputations and positions within Envato would result in an official response.
Unfortunately this seems not to be the case.
However for those still interested in this feature, there is an AudioJungle author who has developed an extension for the Chrome browser which shows you video previews when hovering over a thumbnail. You can find the original thread here. All credits go to the original author: SchwartzSound.
VH author “Creattive” simply asked for a video rollover feature and the AJ author replied within hours, giving access to an updated version of his “PreviewPal” which now gives you the ability to preview (MP4) videos while you hover over a thumbnail. It’s fast and it’s awesome.
While this Chrome extension is completely client side related and obviously will not be automatically enabled for every user, it is still a lot more than Envato has managed to produce in the last 3-4 years.

Am I dreaming?? Thanks Envato for finally being transparent and open to us. It was about time though
What has been the problem in the last two years and what has changed now?Initial idea looked very good, still today. So why didn’t it see the daylight.
I figured Collis has been back to the Marketplaces for a few weeks now, that might explain the sudden change.
It was an awesome first episode once again.
This is so awesome! I’m really enjoying the speed of these previews. Let’s hope Envato will not undo this feature. Now we at least know it was not a technical issue that prevented Envato to implement this feature.
4 years and not one single reply from the staff and here comes SchwartzSound and creates this extension in a couple of hours. Thanks SchwartzSound!
Great app, thank you. I love AJradio, too, btw.
But I’m curious: As your app can access the item preview from list view, is it possible to have an option to not only download videohive previews, but also play them back in a modal window?
So that users can view the preview in list view and don’t have to go to the item’s page to do so?That would be great.
Great idea! PreviewPal now provides automatic preview playback on hover within results / listings pages for compatible media (some video previews are still are FLV). Simply mouse over the item area (audio) or thumbnail (video) to start playback. Hover playback can also be enabled / disabled via the options menu.Make sure to update the extension if it hasn’t automatically (should be v1.2.0), and let me know what you think!
YES! We have waited 4 years for this at VideoHive and you do this in a couple of hours!! Bless you man
I hope Envato will incorporate this functionality for all users by default.
