Not What's Promised
By , for WP 3.9

I've never been able to get all of its features to work at once, but was happy just to get the basics...the capability to let my site's members upload graphics and video. Unfortunately, something happened with an upgrade and now that doesn't even work. I'll click on Media and get nothing but a block of text that used to be the commands to upload, edit, etc. no interface whatsoever.
My research for a solution has been in vane. I can't understand the language used to describe solutions, is targeted to programmer types and is inconsistent in its terminology. Articles I've read from others is equally discouraging! It seems I'm in the same boat as a lot of other people.

Very Expensive
By ,

I wanted to use this plugin but after looking at the $149 base price PLUS much more on the Add-Ons, it looks like a solution for people that can spends few hundreds at least.

Even some big software are not that expensive.

Appears to be good plugin but too pricey.

Will not upload video
By , for WP 3.6.1

Hours of time wasted, searching for solutions. Cannot contact customer service unless you purchase. Can find my problem in the support forums, but not solution (but do see alot of posts from paying customers with questions left unanswered or half answered). Other users seemed more helpful on support forum than the staff when it came to my issue, which is still unresolved. Video does not upload when using plugin because it is either incompatible with firefox (widely used browser) or due to incompatibility with other wordpress plugins (wild goose chase). I'm sure the developers worked very hard on it and it probably works great for others. For me, however, it is dirt/trash/garbage/terrible/horrible/awful/worthless/time-vampire.

Doesn't work with shoestrap theme (roots theme)
By , for WP 3.6

This plugin doesn't work correctly, it breaks my theme when buddypress (1.8) is activated. The profile tab "media" gets a 404 error.
Hey, guys, you must make it work with roots theme if you want to distribute this plugin!

Migrations Stalls/Update not working
By , for WP 3.5.2

This plugin was working well but when the new version came out it was a complete disaster. On the backend the plugin stalls in a attempt to migrate your database. Avoid downloading and wasting your time.
