New month, new clip

Yes, I know, I've dropped off the face of the earth again. It's gonna happen sometimes, folks... when my schedule gets busy and something's gotta give, it's gonna be lostbets.com. And now I've got an enormous backlog of email to plow through, sigh.

But anyway! In happier news, Ashley's Revenge, the sequel to the popular Wednesday's Challenge, is now published! It's a long one... and a dirty one, too. This one goes way farther than anything I've done before... compared to the forfeit here, Addie's forfeit after losing to Simon was child's play. More detail is on the site, hidden behind spoiler-text, so you don't have to see exactly what happens if you don't want to.

Please read this before you bitch about the price: This video is being sold at the Clips4Sale minimum. I couldn't charge less if I wanted to (which I do.) So you can complain to me about it, but it won't do any good. Don't despair, though... I plan to republish this video in a series of shorter chunks, and each one will of course be cheaper.

A while back, you said you were looking into alternative hosting that might let you charge more reasonable prices (or have a membership). Are you still looking, or have you given up and decided to stay with Clips4Sale?

Red said...

Maybe. I really wish that Clips4Sale paid a higher royalty, and above that, I really wish they allowed me more flexibility in setting my prices, but the fact is that they do an awful lot. The only real alternative would be rolling my own software and doing it all myself, and I'm just not sure I'm up for that. I actually did a fair amount of work on a prototype which I'm pretty happy with, but I'd have to handle my own billing, my own fulfillment, and above all, my own customer support. That's what really worries me.. emails from people complaining that their credit cards were fraudulently charged, emails from people complaining that their download didn't work, emails from people complaining that they forgot their password, ugh. Just the thought of it makes me queasy.

Which isn't to say I won't do it eventually... but not now. Right now I'm extremely stressed with a whole lot of responsibilities, and I just don't have the cycles to spare. (I barely have time to keep the site updated even infrequently as it is.) I'll do my best, but please don't hold your breath.

OK I have downloaded every gd thing I can and I can't play your sample clips.....HELP. Make it easy please. My DELL is only 18 months old and I have Windows Media Player 11....it shouldn't be this hard! I can play it from youtube.

I'm not sure of all of the legalities, but have you looked in CCBill?? I know of another site that uses that -- I don't know what the hosting arrangement is either -- but that video quantity/cost is much better.

The new clip looks good, but it's a bit too pricey for my tastes. Maybe breaking up a bit (3 parts should do it) might make it an easier buy. Again, good luck with this, I love your work.

No interactive games really blows then. I'm in the camp that the vids are out of my price range. I've bought one and may buy another in the future. I would honestly buy every one of them if they were 75% cheaper which I think is the fair price.

What about selling them to SGC? His site really sucks and could really use your vids. Could be a great situation for both of you.

Red said...

Anon 2/3 12:46: Try downloading ffdshow (google for it), it should make Windows Media Player able to play the video. If nothing else works, download VideoLAN (google for that, too)... it can play virtually everything.

Crosis: I have looked into CCBill. At the time I rejected them because they require a $750 upfront payment to be able to accept Visa. Since then, I've poured enough money into this thing to make $750 not seem like such a huge investment, but there are other issues with CCBill... it's really more suited to a subscription model than a pay-per-video model. And I really don't dare go to a subscription model... subscriptions mean regular updates, and I just can't guarantee that I'd be able to keep it up.

Anon 2/3 8:23: Believe me, I'd really like to get interactive games going, too. I've got tons of footage filmed that I can't use without a framework for interactive gameplay. I'm not going to let that footage go to waste, but I can't promise just when I'll have interactives ready to go.

Anon 2/3 8:26: I've had some casual conversations with SGC about possible collaboration, and it may happen. By the way, I completely disagree that the site "sucks"... it's been one of my favorites for years.

Anonymous said...

I think SGC has gone extremely stale and if you've seen it once there is no need to go back. In fact I can recall reading a few a your posts over there Red which were some of the most critical I've seen there.

it would ave been better if the striping was embasig for them also

Bogart said...

I just wanted you to know that I love your site and I think I'm in love with Ashley. Also, have you ever considered selling dvds of the videos, I know I would be interested.

Anonymous said...

I really like the site, and have most of the videos. I have liked every girl, except for Wednesday, she just can't seem to act embarrassed.

What is SGC?

Anonymous said...

I have to agree about Wednesday. SGC is stripgamecentral.com. You'll sadly find that the girls there are much worse at acting embarrassed then Wednesday is.

Red said...

Hey Bogart... thanks for the compliment. Yes, I've seriously considered doing DVD sales, and I probably will eventually, but I couldn't say when.

wednesday harrington said...

LOL!!

I'm finding all these comments about me so amusing! Well, it should be noted that i didn't act too "embarrassed" as i was working in a script where my character was trying to be a hardass, right up until the moment of truth :). As for comments folks on here have made about me undressing like a "stripper"... ROFLMAO!! The horrible irony is that i can't dance and strip sexy to save my life when i try, i usually trip on my panties and do a nosedive into the laundry hamper...
