MOST WANTED :) Thank's Mika
Music Videos. I can produce a CD with my music with CDBaby but it costs me 65$ including the bar code. That's quite a lot as I have realized 40 CDs with my music. Would you think it could be profitable for you as well as your customers that you allow selling music videos or music video slideshows, means slideshows where there is not just a background music but where the music is actually from the composer/producer himself so that the focus here would be on the music not the photos. Thanks for your kind consideration.
Videos can already be downloaded... I'd like to be able to monetize this service! I create videos and display them beautifully on Smug Mug... I get a lot of emails from people asking if they can buy the video. I have no way to meet this request easily. I have to burn a dvd.. figure out a way to have them pay etc... it's not practical! If people could just click, pay & download this would be amazing! PLEASE WORK ON THIS ASAP!!! Many photographers are now doing video as well! I want to be able to sell ALL mediums that I am creating!
I think it would be great if my clients could purchase a DVD of the videos I would post on SmugMug from SmugMug.
Thanks for your patience. Now go sell some videos! :)
As much as my clients love beautiful photographs they always ask of they can have a disk with all the images. Now I include the disk in the pricing. It means extra time buying disks, labeling, burning, making sure the disk runs. I would love to simply have the client order the disk when they order prints. I also do video productions and have requests for them on disks. It would be great to be able to send the video link to Smug Mug and let the clients order the disk directly from Smug Mug.
As I was browsing the web to determine which site I would like to use for my photography business, I really felt confident with choosing "SmugMug" but once I learned DVD/CD's weren't available for customer purchase, that was such a big let down for me because DVD/CD are highly recommended in this market at this time. SmugMug please add DVD/CD's!!
You have the best helpdesk, and most easy to handle that I have seen in my now 15 years of Internet experience. All my compliments.

That is a separate feature request over here:
Thanks for the feedback!
I mean smugmug burn the disc before mail out.. not download.. DVD or Blu-Ray
Thank you for the added feature. A few questions.
1. Would there be a feature for Pay-Per-View option in the future?
2. Could videos have proof feature as photos? This would allow
producer to maybe upload short trailer initially. Once clip was purchased, producer could upload full clip while in proof state.

This is a brilliant addition and thank you for your work SmugMug!
As always, you guys ROCK!
My Sony a580 takes great video clips and the newspaper I shoot for uses the links for the events I cover. It would be great if I could sell other videos to my photography customers.
My Nikon camera and also GOPRO camera allows for great video clips to be produced. I think people would buy for their iphones etc. How close is the feature?
I used to shoot and sell dance recitals on DVDs. Nowadays it's more appropriate to sell video clips so people can put them on youtube or cellphones.

ACK! I'm REALLY needing the ability to sell videos and I just assumed I could through my smugmug site. I didn't see any kind of warning that I couldn't and I now have my foot firmly in my mouth. Please make this a possibility for us!
I would love to see this feature - I use the video service primarily to produce educational tutorials and would love to use SmugMug to sell access some videos that I'd consider more valuable. This would also really set SmugMug apart from other personal video services.

Selling video downloads or DVDs of files (as we do with pictures) would be GREAT. It would keep us from having to answer tat question over and over and over... Thanks!
James Callas commented
with cameras that take videos along with pictures it would be so cool to be able to sell the videos also.
Carolyn Himes commented
It would be great to resell videos specifically if you have a RESELLER Account with Animoto. And it's a logical way to add a revenue stream to existing photography. Thanks, please consider!
Videos could add another option. The more the better!
Hi I am Events @ School Sport Photographer and many people asked me WHY NOT YOU SELL DVD SOMETHING LIKE THAT. i think its cool if you add to sales DVD or Blu-Ray for some fee and send to them.

I definitely see videos, and clips as a source of new revenue for SMUGMUG as well as myself. My videos are being used right now to help set up draqracing cars. as my wife and I are dragracing photographers...
Videos would add so much to Smug Mug and it's users! More visibility and more sales!
