    For my first Maxbounty campaign I decided to promote the VLC player, I would link to it but obviously I can't but it comes up when you type in "player" into maxbounty. It's the UK version.

    I know for a fact that I've had some downloads yet no "actions" are coming up. I'm also getting quite a few complaints that the file contains a virus of some sort.

    Would Maxbounty promote malicious software? Also is the reason I'm not getting any "actions" because I sounded like a noob on the phone and they think they can shave me like a noob?

    Lastly does anyone know any alternatives to this, that are available in the UK. Looking for offers that involve downloading a Codec/Video Player. Or else just any Email Submit offers available in the UK.

    Thanks

    Affillion also has this offer...

    VLC Player is a free opensource player so I'm pretty sure some shady company is distributing it bundled with spyware or something.

    Argh gutted. From experience anyone know any CPAs that don't shave too much? I just know that I pretty much had a 90% conversion rate so to say I got 0 actions is ludacris.

    Most of the time one those types of offers the user needs to download AND install the program and keep it installed for X amount of days.

    Talk to you AM and they will be able to tell you exactly how to get the offer to convert.

    I am very interested if still relevant. When I first got into online marketing I signed up with a CPA network that claim to pay for both vlc and media player classic downloads. I never got a conformation e-mail (or at least nothing mentioning cpa) so I can't remember what site or service it was. If you know of one pls reply or PM me...I don't think I am able to send PMs yet.
