both licenses allow you to use them on ONE project.

single use for example is for a single website, single client etc. and not distributed to another people.

extended covers redistributables(for sale or for download by MULTIPLE people)

so I think your usage would fall on extended license

@theflyingtinman I thought that wasn’t in affect until Monday :?

You’re right. I thought the original question was to do with trying to understand the wording of the new license types recently announced. (I was probably wrong)

So let me get this straight. If I buy an extended license for a file fom FD, I can use it in a template that I was to sell it here?

Important Notes Image Viewers and Galleries purchased under a regular or extended license may NOT be used within other Envato marketplace items.
Important Notes Video Players purchased under an extended license MAY be used within website templates for sale on ThemeForest or FlashDen.

So it depends on the purchased file type. I don’t know how you expect someone on the forums to make it any clearer than that!

I’m wondering what’s the reasoning behind making some file types usable and others not.

I’ll give you the clearest example: you made a PSD website template, publish it on TF and start working on converting it to HTML or Wordpress. In the meantime some freakin’ fast coder buys your file on extended license, codes it and releases it before you.. You are screwed!

On the other hand GR backgrounds are permitted to be used in TF templates (via extended license) because you know… the background doesn’t make the website template… And this is why people make backgrounds or icons – the best way to make money with such items is sell them to someone making templates on extended license :)
