If it’s a new feature It is very fine :) Customers now have to open item’s page and read the description, so if the track has something in the middle that could be interesting for purchasing, customer can read about it without skipping after 5 seconds towards a new thumbnail…My thoughts :D

edit: it’s also a way to use all thumbnail for graphics!

Customers won’t bother. Generally you want to be able to search through a lot of tracks quickly. There’s not much you can tell by the title, the description or even the sales / rating. But you can generally tell if something’s right in the first 10 seconds by listening to it. This just slows the whole process down and adds a lot more clicking. I suspect it will mean that files with less sales will get less of a look-in, because trying out something untried and tested will take more time.

I really don’t give a damn about the description…I might read the descriptions of two or three shortlisted tracks, before I decide which to buy. I also bookmark a lot of stuff and need to be able to recap hundreds of files quickly before making a purchasing decision. This feature being missing makes that very difficult.

I agree about the start of the track not necessarily being representative. I would like to be able to skip to the middle of a track from the 80×80 icon, from the moment it starts playing.

Yeah, I’ve noticed too… I think it’s gotta be a bug! This seems like taking a step back if it was a new feature.

+1 felt. If this is going to stay, that’s horrible. It sucks, very much.

This is a reason why I’m not a fan of “all versions of track in one preview”
For example, if buyer want to listen to the track in the middle, he clicks on the middle of preview on the icon….and hears the same music as intro… Because it’s beginning of the second version or a loop.

Hey guys,

This has been reported to the devs and they are currently investigating the issue. It’s definitely a bug and not a new feature. Thanks for your patience while the issue is investigated and rectified. :)
