[resolved] [closed] Is HUGE COST ($200-$500 per year) for premium AddOns justified for rtMedia? (2 posts)

    Ok, I understand this is a good plugin.

    But current premium add on prices "every year" are over $200 per year:

    $50 - rtmedia instagram addon
    $50 - rtmedia photo tagging
    $100 - FFMPEG addon for file conversion
    $150 - Kaltura addon

    Additional soon more Add-Ons are coming and will take your yearly cost to run this plugin through the roof ($400-$500 per year)as follows:

    $$$ - Watermark Addon
    $$$ - Membership Addon

    So soon it will cost like $400 or more "EVERY YEAR" to run this plugin.

    As per rtmedia (rtcamp) site, you will get free upgrade/updates only for a year, so that means we have to shell out 400 or more dollars every year to keep this plugin working.

    Am I missing something here?
    I have never seen a plugin so expensive?

    Be careful using this plugin or you will have to abandon this plugin and re-start from scrath in future when you won't be able to afford to renew every year.

    Before I jump in to using this plugin, I would like to get a clarification from the developers about these costs:

    - provide full disclosure about what will be the total costs of all necessary add ons?
    - Why the upgrades/updates are only covered for a year?
    - Why can't all the premium add ons be purchased with a single addon and single price?

    Even Microsoft Office price is below this plugin.

    I don't want to be held hostage to this plugin if I can't afford the costs.

    Please clarify.

    Thanks.
