Because it would be pointless. The AlamDV software hasn't been available for something like 7 years, and isn't really compatible with many modern computers.

Besides, all the plug-ins really are are bits of stock footage in a special wrapper, a wrapper which has to be removed before the stock can be used in any other program. So you are better off just creating stock footage than an AlamDV plug-in, and there are loads of people who create stock footage.

So how come there isn't a stock footage section?

Well, there is. The lower half of this page is chock full of various stock footage.

I'd guess that there isn't a section of free stock that anyone can upload to because bandwidth and server space cost money, and video takes up a lot of both. Since the old AlamDV stuff was already online, on the servers, they thought it'd be nice to make it available so people could still use it if they wanted.
