Hi Mike,

You are correct, this is a browser issue. It must be something to do with Vimeo as well. My iPad plays all the videos fine on safari, but my laptop only plays 10% of the videos on chrome. The error message suggests its something to do with the settings on the video itself, so hopefully this will be resolved soon.

Good to hear.

This is a new venture and I suspect it will take them a bit of trial and error to work out all of the bugs.

I'll volunteer to be a beta tester (for a fee of course).

At the moment, I don't like it. The Videos are alle splitted in parts. One for performance, one for explanation - looks also a little bit confusing. I think, if I could watch the whole DVD, it would be easier. There is of course good content (but actually not so much, as someone may be expected), but I am not seeing me, paying the next month. It would also be nice, if there would be a list, with things new added.

I've found if I choose the magician tab and choose the performer and play from there, the video's play in order. They are still segmented but are set up as performance then explanation for each routine. All you have to do is click next video.

I see good and bad in this from L&L.

I remain open minded.

Thanks for the feedback so far. We are still in the early stages and plan to put a lot more polish to the site. Let us know what you would like to see.

Would like to see more videos added to the site.

At least the Barrie Richardson material, I've really enjoyed those.

Digital distribution means that the effective cost of production becomes zero, so it makes sense to see people going for long tail sales through discount pricing, bundling, and all you can eat services. In the past warehousing old stock was an expensive pursuit, so at some point it just make sense to junk old stuff - meaning it retained value. With digital goods, they inevitably trend towards a cost close to zero, given enough time.

That said, subscription services tend to earn a lot of money - hopefully this ends up being a revenue generator for L&L such that it justifies the creation of new content.

There isn’t much content up currently to justify the monthly subscription. Please add more and quickly. I’d like to see more material from:
Daryl
Michael Ammar
Jay Sankey
Dan Harlan
Darwin Ortiz
The World’s Greatest Magic Series

Darwin Ortiz is on there already. But yes, the content is very shallow right now, but you are getting a discounted rate for that reason. A few months down the line Id imagine there will be plenty of content and new subscribers will be paying more while us early birds will be still paying the 9.95 fee.

There is still more than enough content to justify the 9.95, 13 magicians featured including Richard Osterlind, Max Maven, and Barrie Richardson. Most of the magicians have multiple routines available as of right now. If nothing is added but next month, then yeah it will slowly become ¨Not worth it¨. But right now, Ive paid 9.95 and ive got my moneys worth.

Edit: Just realised you said ¨More content¨, rather than ¨Content¨. My bad, yes more Darwin Ortiz content would be lovely, and I'm sure its on the way.

More I think about it, cheaper $9.95 seems.

Yep! I would expect the price to double once they load all their videos.

Think of it as being a beta-tester with the perk of long term discounted access. Less than the price of a pizza a month.

No brainer for me. Smile

I went to the site and didn't see anything on the home page about it. Where is the link?

I'm speculating.

I'm just excited to see something like this finally arrive. To be fair they don't have any ground breaking videos on there yet ;and most of the videos are based upon known concepts, but some of the nuggets I found got me thinking about doing things a different way. So there is that.

I looked at it this way. I spend the same amount for IMusic (or whatever it is called) each month so that my Niece can listen to music that I hate. So $10 spent a month for myself where I may find a little inspiration isn't too much to feel guilty about. Besides (speculating) I expect it to continue to grow.

Will we see Max Maven's Nothing? Hmmm maybe... maybe not... it was rather pricey when it came out (I bought it) and it has been a few years.

I have the DVD's (core to me) already and may not find too much on the site that I don't already know. But... you never know.

I'm not associated with L&L in anyway. I'm just excited to see this concept being attempted.
