Today, I am going to review Stockocity 2 a collection video clips brought to you by Richard Madison, and what it does is it gives you access to full HD royalty free videos that you can use as a background or even compile these video clips to create a video collages for marketing videos to promote your online or offline business.
This product is actually a revamped version of the Lifetime Stock Video, which was a product launched in August 2017 and was a pretty big hit especially for video marketers as it provided lots of royalty free video clips at a very low price.
Now, it’s is being launched today, claiming that it will provide you with 6 times more stock videos compared to its predecessor, but to tell you honestly, I actually haven’t bought Lifetime Stock Video before so I can’t really tell if its telling the truth or not, but what I’m really interested here is the kind and quality of videos that I can get with this product, and being a somewhat a video marketer myself, I thought that I will be needing these kinds of royalty free video footage someday so I went on to purchase it to find out for myself if it’s really worth getting this one.
Inside Stockocity 2
Below is the sneak peek of what you can expect when you get this product
The Main Dashboard
After purchasing, you will be provided with your email and password to access their online library, and their dashboard will look like the one below
Selecting A Video Footage
Once you found the video that you like, just click the thumbnail and you will be sent to the page where you will see more details about the footage as well as the download link to the file
To download the video, just hover your mouse over the green download button and you will then see several options for your video quality (FHD, HD, SD, Web)
I don’t know if it’s just with my browser (I’m using Firefox by the way) because it does not automatically download the file and just sends me to the video itself (without the watermark) so I have to hover my mouse over the video, then right click on it then choose “Save Video As…”
Browsing the Videos
What I like about the dashboard is its well organized interface and you can browse either by categories, by tag, or by entering a keyword
To browse by categories, just hover to “Browse” text on the top menu and the different categories will appear
Just select any of the categories and you will be shown the videos under that category. In this example, I chose “Eating and Drinking” category
You can also browse videos thru their tags. Just click on the “Tags” text on the top menu and you will be sent to their very artistic tag cloud (see below)
The size of the text is actually proportional to the number of videos tagged with that text, so you can see here that most of the videos are actually tagged with “Tide”. Also, each text there is actually a link, and if you click on one, you will be shown video clips related to that tag.
The only problem that I can see here is that some of the tags with few associated videos are very small and it’s really difficult to see, though there are other ways to search for videos anyway so it’s not really a big deal.
The team of Richard Madison has actually done a very good job because they provided a feature where you can browse the video clips by keywords, and I’m really thankful for this feature because it will make your life easier to browse for videos that you actually need.
To search by keyword, just click the magnifying lens icon that you can see beside your avatar
Then just type your keyword below. I just like to remind you that there is just some kind of bug here because you’re unable to see the text that you type (maybe they have set the text to transparent or something) but it does still work though, just make sure to type the correct word.
Once you already typed the word, just click “Search”.
In this example, I actually typed “dog” as my keyword and you can see the result below
So I browsed and downloaded some of the royalty videos that caught my attention, and compiled them to give you a glimpse of what you will be getting in case you actually purchase this product. These videos are for both the standard and the professional packages.
To tell you the truth, I really have no plan of getting the professional package because I thought the standard version is already enough, but after I saw some of the sample video clips in the pro version, there are just lots of videos that I saw that I can make use of someday so I decided to get it as well.
I just have to remind you that the video clips does not come with any audio, but when you buy Stockocity 2, you will actually get royalty free audio tracks as bonus (100 tracks for Standard package and 480 tracks when you upgrade to Professional package)
Sample Videos from Standard Package
Below you’ll see a compilation of some sample video clips available in the Standard Package
Sample Videos from Professional Package
And below you’ll see some sample videos only available in the Professional Package that I’ve compiled using Camtasia.
And that’s basically what’s inside Stockocity 2. There’s actually not much to tinker here since it’s just a library of stock videos, but what I do like about it is the ease of use and the well organized user interface including the search by keyword feature.
What I Like About Stockocity 2
Massive Collection of Royalty Free Video Clips
This is the selling point of this product and they really lived up to expectation as you’ll get access to more than 6,500 royalty free video clips just in the front end alone.
If you think that’s still not enough for you, don’t worry because you have the option to purchase the Professional Package upgrade to increase your total collection to 18,000 videos! (which by the way will go up to 25,000 after two years!)
Videos are High Quality
As you can see from the samples above, the videos are really high quality and professionally made. I just do have to tell you honestly that not all are amazingly done because there are some video clips that I found to be very ordinary, but still, there are really lots of videos that are so majestic, full of emotions, and attention grabbing and it definitely offsets the ordinarily made videos included in the package
Another nice thing about Stockocity 2 is the videos are stored on the cloud and you will be able to access your video assets anywhere as long as you have an internet connection
One time Fee
For a massive collection like this one, it’s really hard to imagine that it’s a one-time fee product but it definitely is!
Additional Full HD Videos Every Month For the Next 24 Months
Another thing I really liked about Stockocity 2 is you’re not stuck with the same videos for the rest of your life (or at least for the next 24 months) because every month for the next 24 months, you will receive 75 new videos, which is actually very cool considering it’s a one-time payment product
And by the way, in case you decide to upgrade to Professional Version (which I did), you’re entitled to receive 250 new videos every month (instead of 75) for the next 24 months
What I Don’t Like
Some Videos Are like the Same
The only thing I noticed is that some videos are taken in the same place with just a different angle or composition, which I really find somewhat off because I am expecting the videos to be rather unique in every way
No Option For Mass Downloading
It’s really cool that this product is cloud-based and you’ll be able to save some space in your hard drive, but in case you’re someone who wants to get all assets in their PC, downloading everything at once can be a pain because there is no option for mass downloading, which is actually something you should think of doing because if the website went down or the owner stopped supporting the product, all your collection will be lost.
Stockocity 2 is a one-time fee product and is currently on sale for $67.00, but for a limited time, if you buy thru my link, you can actually get it with a cool $20 off. Just click the button below to learn more on how to avail the discounted price.
And I guess that wraps up my review. In my opinion, Stockocity 2 is definitely a product worth looking at and something that you can add to your marketing arsenal as it can provides you with lots of video resources that you can use in your video marketing needs.
As someone who uses video promotion like myself, I personally recommend this product especially to those who need lots of royalty free videos for their work as it really does provide you quality stock video footage with lots of varieties to choose from, and for its price, I think getting this one is really a no brainer.
