I still don't like the plugin itself, but videostir is pretty freaking cool. It's like when you buy a pair of panties and it's stuffed full of product labels and care-instruction tags and you're there for like an hour with a pair of scissors cutting out all these stupid labels and- i swear. sometimes panties are more label than pantie. you know.. but you still buy the panties. cause they make your butt look amazing.
If you want a paid walk on character actor service, this is one of many on the internet. I was all excited when I saw this, but nothing is for nothing. I researched how to do this, and I can now do this in Dreamweaver in 10 mins after watching a tutorial on YouTube.
On their website you get one free video clip with their logo attached. If it goes over 100 views, you have to pay. Even if you pay $19 you only get one video clip which allows 10,000 views with a "hover over logo". They say it is free, but they appear to be just using WordPress to advertise their service and calling it a plugin. Any character you create and work hard on yourself, is delivered from their website, not WordPress.
It took me a little to get to the final clip (i first wanted to try out a video and then made a more "serious" video) but i was astonished by the power of the videostir engine.
i recommend using the service to bring a new level of interaction on a website - whatever your website's goal, there's almost surely some good way to use the clip overlay - but just make sure to put some effort in it otherwise the experience can be a little frustrating.
There's virtually no need to have a technical background to use this plugin, although a little familiarity with coding can give an extra edge if one wants to quickly customize the "clip code".
the customer service was more than willing to help, btw, so when in doubt, ask. They seem to be aware that right now they are dealing with people exploring and pioneering the use of this plugin, so they put extra care in being serviceable.
Definitely worth giving a shot.
