I'm just a small producer but the sales of video for a buck or two through a "bug" or whatever you want to call it incensed me to no end. My solution was to "opt out" by deleting my portfolio and closing my account. That seemed to do the trick.

When something like this happens, the polite thing would be to issue a statement and let the producers know what is happening, so they don't get so damned pi$$ed.

Hi All,

We have experienced a temporary bug allowing some holders of old monthly subscriptions to download videos from opted out contributors. That is now fixed.

We also remind you that the ability to download M size videos has been recently taken out from all new monthly subscriptions, so these sales should gradually totally disappear as old monthly subscriptions run out.

Thanks,

Mat

OMG, I just got a subscription video M size sales the other day and got only 1.3 credit which is only $2 or so.
If I get this ridiculous cheap sale of my video clips, I'll delete all my video files from FOTOLIA.  This is bad for us contributors.  I already deleted all my video files from 123RF because of similar ridiculous sales.  I actually closed my account there because it's not worth it.

It's ridiculous because I should be making $15 instead of $2 for those M size video sales.  FOTOLIA is giving some rich big corporation an insane discount in expense of us small business individual contributors.  They got to stop this ASAP.  It'll be bad for their business too if all the good footage contributors start deleting video clips from FOTOLIA.

"We are pleased to announce that one of your files has just been sold by subscription:
File Reference: 58810524 
Purchase Date: 2014-10-01 16:15:16 
Purchase License: V_M 
Sale Price: 1.35 "

Well I'm not pleased with the sale price, so all my content will be deleted from fotolia.

Try this, worked for me.

I opted out from here.

Just de-select the video clip sub sales.

I hope it works.

Thank you Ronnin. I will delete my videos from fotolia anyway. Couple of years ago they were selling my full resolution images for 0.35 and now my videos for 1.35. I`ve had enough.
@Mat - thank you for your advice but I will delete all from fotolia.
