On Chrome the icons show up OK.
On Firefox 27 I get those strange placeholders (not running any scripts and all browser extensions disabled).
In IE11 those placeholders don’t even show up, it’s just blank space.
Yup, no icons here also.
Almost a month later and right now there’s at least two items with “loop” on the title in the motion graphics category. Yes, they slipped through… I don’t want to call them out, I just wish this whole rule would revert back since it doesn’t seem like it’s enforced, giving only extreme cases of title abuse an actual need to be changed.
Furthermore, a question:
As Tyson has mentioned here, attribute-based information really does belong in the attributes. Titles should be a short succinct description of the file and not include extra, redundant information.
How can this be when themeforest titles systematically include “joomla” or “wordpress”, words that are also present in the attributes? Shouldn’t these rules be valid for all marketplaces? If for themeforest it’s handy for buyers to notice the distinction between items in the title, why can’t it be handy for my videohive buyers to see if a file is a “loop” or not? Boggles the mind…
Here’s a +1 for a proper explanation, or better still, some changes.
1) From my own experience and browsing around videohive it’s really a coin toss wether you get priced $4 or $5 on a single motion graphics item, the question is why? Furthermore, if it’s based on chance, why not set them all to the maximum they can be ($5 right now) and make things fair?
2) Packs are always incredibly discounted, sometimes 25% the sum price of all those items, if they were sold individually. Why?
3) Stock footage is more expensive at fullHD than motion graphics even though they have the same kind of usage as a video tool. So, why?... It’s also priced by resolution, while motion graphics isn’t. Why?
I’m not sure if you’re just simply asking how does one arrive at the url: when you click play on a video, the window that pops-up has an arrow button on top to “Download Video”; clicking it will display the full url on your browser.
If it’s more complicated than this, you should press the “Request Staff Reply” button on your message to make sure someone from staff sees your question.
Well… i could say a new featured file of the week is a very efficient use of that dedicated place in the front page….. but I will not say that. Happy valentines day
Oh… wow… a valentine’s day item featured on the 24th of February. Great sense of timing… maybe this is definitive proof that videohive is behind the times. :/
I agree, three years is too long to adapt. Sometimes it seems these needed features on videohive are overshadowed by the needs of themeforest and codecanyon which bring in $ and don’t need a video rollover (or an audiojungle sound rollover for that matter). So, while competitors have rollover previews for video, audio and image, here on videohive we get a squashed rollover preview image if we happen to upload it in 16:9.
Regarding search, at least the two other famous marketplaces for stock footage (with a much higher traffic ranking than videohive) seem to keep it simple in terms of options, very similar to envato, so maybe their algorithm is better.. or maybe its the fact the rollover videos load so fast and make finding what you need a breeze… or that they definitely have more file variety… or even that their image previews on the grid are bigger and much easier on the eyes to browse than envato’s small 80×80 thumbnails. Add to that a cart system…
I don’t think we’re going to get a concrete timeline from devs on this… It’s good to see the visual changes of lately on the marketplaces, it just doesn’t seem like the changes authors want and that buyers would love.
I disagree… for single-file motion graphics or stock footage I think the prices should be the same across the board, disregarding duration or complexity. This is the way the big stock footage marketplaces do it and i think it’s great.. you go to those marketplaces, you search and get what you NEED, regardless of price. Because if you leave up to the reviewer to put fake value into some files, this will only lead to angry authors and confused buyers wandering inside an unbalanced marketplace.
Regarding other pricing changes, charge more for UHD/4K files (4x more is OK as it’s 4 times the resolution)... for packs of stock footage or motion graphics I think the price of the pack should never be below 50% the price sum of every item inside it, if it was sold separately (ie: I have a motion graphic selling for $4, a pack of 10 should never be below 20$).
I am user of computing and internet for about 15 years. And I dont know any of those commands which are for search filtering. So I think buyer should not be required to know them to find something. (...)
I agree, buyers shouldn’t be required to know this just because Google uses it… but if envato’s search supported this, then it would be a matter of making users aware that they could use the minus(-) to filter their searches. Having in mind I don’t know anything about coding, this seemed so simple I just had to ask the devs. But I realize it’s not a pretty solution.
Hey, it’s 3am so here’s a day dream:
The search input area up there becomes a button… when pressed it relocates users to a Search Central with a form/options relevant to the marketplace in question. Below the search form there are cool items of the marketplace being showcased. Among the many search options, one can see input fields for “Include Words” and “Exclude Words”. Everyone’s happy.
I was just trying out the search and I have a quick question: If I search for “loop” right now I’ll get some Valentine’s hearts items close to the top. Imagine I want to filter out the word “hearts” from this search with a handy google-style “loop -hearts”... is something like this possible in the future?
