Music Video Shop

A store which sells music videos
  [vote for,

It's easy to find places that sell music, but none of these stores have many videos for sale. With the popularity of shows like Total Request Live, this would undoubtedly be a profitable business. By the way, if this is actually baked, I would like to find out about it.

Music DVDs on eBay http://listings.eba...ory41563/index.html
eBay has everything [benjamin, Oct 04 2004, last modified Oct 05 2004]


       Actually, they never play music videos on MTV. Period. Not even TRL plays them in their entirety. All the more reason for this store.

       I disagree. Music videos are VERY difficult to find and purchase - I think a very small percentage of them are commercially available in any format. I paid eighty dollars last year for an out-of-print VHS of about 12 videos I liked. If you could repackage unavailable vids (what mid-20's goth wouldn't pay for a collection of vintage 80's Siouxie & the Banshees / Cure / Depeche Mode?) they would definitely sell. I can't think of a price I wouldn't pay for a set of videos of my choice - some of which have only aired once...at 3 am...7 years ago...on MuchMusic in Canada. Double-bonus!! If this store lets you pick videos out of a catalog or from a computer system, and then burn them to a custom DVD. For that matter, this could easily be a web business that just compiles and sends you the (encrypted? un-copyable?) DVD. Of course, there's a lot of negotiating to be done with the record companies who own these videos - they'll want a cut, but might be thrilled to have new revenue flowing in from essentially worthless stuff they paid for long ago.
