I’m always use mp4 H264… never got any reject or anything.

Well in the upload form it clearly says “Submissions must be encoded with one of the formats listed here, within a Quicktime MOV container.” and so does here http://support.envato.com/index.php?/Knowledgebase/Article/View/330

I guess it’s just another example of marketplace rules that aren’t enforced.

All the videos have been .mp4’s. So the pervious ones that have been accepted have just slipped through?

Most likely. Sadly these slip throughs are not that unusual… Unless the rules have changed yet again, I think the videos inside the *.mp4 container weren’t supposed to have been accepted, so keep future videos encoded in h.264, inside a *.mov container. That’s what I’ve always done with no problems.

Did you upload a *.mp4 or a *.mov file?... Because h.264 is a codec, just like PhotoJPG is.

You can upload a h.264 encoded video, as long as it’s inside a *.mov container.

Hey my OCD is kicking in. You know how it’s “Popular Items” and “Upload an Item” on the marketplaces? Then why do our profile pages show a “Featured File” instead of a “Featured Item”? :grin:

I think in the future, whenever something like this happens and someone from staff says “you should change your password asap”, there should be a notice saying so on the author dashboard… or the bar usually reserved for advertising bundles. It’s messed up to have to know about this from the forums, as I don’t visit the envato notes that often.

Honestly, the right thing to do would be fix it, not remove the option…

This is just common sense… we’re talking about preview images that should be properly displayed in a 16:9 aspect ratio, which is used globally for video. If this issue was the other way around it wouldn’t make sense, but this is 2014, 16:9 video is everywhere, and this is a video marketplace.

I have this issue too as all my items are in 590×332. I also mentioned this over a year ago on forums and on multiple occasions since, and to support. I don’t think anyone at envato cares, or it must be at the absolute bottom of priorities for them. Just makes you wonder why they even give an option if the option is broken.

I was looking at the video section http://studio.envato.com/explore/video-animation and have a question:

Those first 3 jobs are essentially the same, just different price points for different animation lengths. As Studio expands, it’s pretty obvious this will lead to pages and pages of variations of the same job. So why aren’t they being merged into one?

That other site I’m sure you’re familiar with has a nice approach… a base price for a job, with “extras” to that job in case the client wants them. One job page, multiple options.

Another example: Many authors on videohive have templates for 100 images. A template like this on Studio shouldn’t have the same price for customizing 10 images or 100. So if the author wanted to add price-points for different number of images customized, that would mean multiple jobs, instead of one job with extras inside. Add to that more authors, more templates… and soon Studio will be a mess to browse.

Nice project. But if you notice other slideshows on videohive, their preview image features a still with many different photos to show how those photos be displayed on the video… and your preview image just has a huge instagram logo (which I’m not even sure you can use) and clipart mustaches.

You should request a staff reply. My guess: it was a different reviewer for each one… or the extra 8 seconds in one of them make it worth $2 more… There are more situations like this around videohive… so whatever the reason, it’s just another good example of how the pricing policy for motion graphics and stock footage needs an overhaul.
