For the past 2 months, not a single sale on P5. I understand the holiday season and all that, but zero clips? They are all "online", 1200 clips and priced hd-60 and 4K - 120 or so.

I was getting about $250 to $375 a month up until around two months ago. Got $160 in December and $165 in January.

A bit too soon for some kind of worrying trend, but we'll see how this month and the next goes.

Since the membership program started in May, I have had in 8 months a combined number of downloads lower than what I was doing in a month! and my portfolio is three times bigger now. My last sale was middle of November.
The artists participating to the membership have been pushed up in the search and everybody else has been squeezed out. In other words, if you are not in the MS, forget about P5 and move to something else.
Also 85-90% of customers have moved to the membership where they can choose amongst 200,000 good quality files for peanuts. I have the feeling that this incredible dumping is starting to affect the other agencies as well and I believe soon they will start lowering their prices to respond to this start of the race to the bottom

At what price are you selling photos?
Try to increase it to 20-50 Euro.
I did and the number of sales (which was already very low: about 5 sales per month) didn't go down.
I don't know why, perhaps an higher price gives an impression of better quality.
At least now the few sales are worth it.

Edit: I just realised you were talking about video, not stills.

I had decent sales in December. January was slow, had just one.

SS has had no sales since November.

Great sales all last year, Jan very slow and nothing this month so far

SS also very slow start to the year.

 Adaptation and other income streams are very important in the stock media game.

Same here, nice steady stream of money turned into a big fat zero.
