usability is the main feature

+1. The way to really stand out is to make sure your items are as useable and ready-to-go as possible. That can mean providing useful variations, seamless loops, clean and thoughtful edits, processed/mastered/designed clips, etc. Create and design sounds for a real purpose. Make sure you put some thought into explaining the usefulness and versatility of your item in the description. A unique approach and recording also certainly helps, and quality is of course key. That’s my advice :)

Great info as usual Gareth! Best production tutorial I’ve seen in some time. I also recommend the egg cartons on walls, really terrific at getting that unwanted 600-800 Hz out of the room: http://www.acousticsfirst.com/docs/egg.pdf. My mixes have never sounded more organic ;)

Hey everyone! I’ve made a few updates this weekend. With PreviewPal v1.3, now along with:

  • One-click download buttons on item pages
  • Direct download access on the results/listing pages
  • Automatic renaming for improved organization
  • Hover preview playback for compatible media

You also have access to an “Enhanced Results View” option that provides an alternate list view layout with enhanced formatting, linking, and item information. Just enable it in the extension options and your results pages will now look something like:

The full-width audio player can also be separately enabled/disabled if you decide not to use it.

BUG FIX: For those of you that may have noticed it, this update also fixes a bug where the results page preview features didn’t update during pagination. All good now!

does it work with sfx?

Indeed, any media file with a watermarked preview file available, including graphics and photos too!

That’s a must have feature! Thank you! Any chances for Firefox?

Unfortunately I’m not really familiar with creating add-ons for FireFox, plus I know there are some media incompatibilities such as FireFox is unable to natively play MP3 files (requires integrating a more advanced player with a Flash fallback). However if any experienced FireFox devs are interested in converting the extension feel free to drop me a line!

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!

Hey Everyone!

With all the attention on comp / preview file downloading recently, I’ve been inspired to create this new Chrome browser extension to help with downloading and organizing preview files across all marketplaces!

With it you can:

  • Download preview files on item pages with easy access buttons (no right-click)
  • Download preview files directly from results and listing pages
  • Download preview files on items across all marketplaces (where available)
  • Automatically renames the preview files based on item information
  • Customize your own file naming convention for improved organization

Have a look, it’s completely free to install from the Chrome Web Store and via Envato Extras.

I hope you find it useful, and let me know if you notice any issues or have any requests!

UPDATE: PreviewPal now also provides automatic preview playback on hover within results / listings pages for compatible media. Simply mouse over the item area or thumbnail to start playback. Hover playback can also be enabled / disabled via the options menu. Enjoy!

Hey Tim, FYI the preview downloading is working fine on AJ Radio, in the meantime :)
