Tony, the "market" isn't one monolithic thing that all people must slavishly follow in lockstep: there certainly is a large niche, particularly in the events video sphere, and to a smaller extent, in corporate/government/institutional settings, where DVD and/or BD is going to hold strong for a good ten years yet. Yes, cloud and youtube and vimeo are the trend. But just ONE trend. There are plenty of people out there that have their reasons for not migrating as fast as everyone else.

"Making" people migrate to the cloud just to be modern isn't just arrogant, it's bad business, because it is leaving money on the table. It's my opinion that a developer that can work from well-established base code, and doesn't have to create everything from scratch, could efficiently make the product I and others want, and make good money off of it, for years, perhaps a decade. There is money to be made there: certainly not billionaire-class money, but "comfortable living on into retirement" money? Heck, yes.

Particularly, because Apple, Adobe, and all the "cool kids" are not bothering to pick up the small change laying on the floor. The thing about small change is, pick up enough of it, and you have enough for bus fare and something to eat. There is and will be a place for authoring optical media for some time yet. And an opportunity, for a clever designer who can craft the missing piece to the puzzle for people who need it. That is perfect third-party developer territory.
