Can I make the Demo Player autoload?

There's a saying that goes like this: "don't wake the baby". Autoplaying your demo could in theory wake a baby, fill a house with screams and all of a sudden your great demo is a source of great resent.

Many browsers have autoplay disabled as it doesn't align well with the internet's best practices.

You can however make your demo player run through all items in the cart stack, once the user has cicked play, see Sequential Playing on the Demo Control Panel, it can also optionally play through the stack one more time, see Repeat Playlist on the Demo Control Panel.

Can I use it as a Drop-In or Pop-Up?

Yes, it can be used as a "Drop-In" iFrame embed, a "Pop-Up" window or full blown, all singing, all dancing website.

Your Control Panel has an Embed Section which lists all the pages on your site, the options to suppress certain features, and a link generator to make embedding, or sharing your website easy.

Can I add Broadcast Rights to an order?

Does your platform have buyers like VDC et al?

Voiceovers Direct is not a marketplace.

It's a platform that enables you to sell direct to your clients, how you find those clients is 100% on your shoulders. It's cool how you bring traffic to your site, as long as it's ethical and above board.

Do you have an affiliate scheme?

Users of the platform can refer other new users and will earn a finder's fee of $100, €90 or £80 depending on the new client's payment currency..

This offer is only for Voice Talent who use the platform, it's not a regular affiliate deal as such, more a exclusive, users only referral deal.
