Not Supported DB Changes Uses Plugins Template Edits Additional Files  

From the makers of the letters O and Yea comes the hottest 'must have mod' of the season: AME 2.5 - The Return of The Hot Mama.

Thanks everyone for making AME 2.5 Mod of the Month

AME is the multi award winning modification that smartly scans new and edited posts for URLs from a customisable variety of web sites (i.e. YouTube or Amazon or about 200 others). If it finds a match, AME will 'transform' the URL into inline embedded media without your users ever having to even think about it.

It was important for me to create a system that did not need updating (and subsequent reinstalling) every time one of the sites it supported decided to change the way it displayed its media (which is all the fricken time). Therefore I built a system in which the 'definitions' for each site could be imported, exported, tweaked and shared on a whim. This way, you only have to import the definitions that you want. It also allows the vB community to get creative and share definitions that I wouldn't of thought of!

Which sites are supported?

Included in the default installation is YouTube and Amazon. At time of posting this, I believe that there are over 180 sites supported that have been created by the vBulletin community. These range from sites that stream videos to Amazon referral links to locally hosted music and video files.

Check out the 'add ons' section of this post below to see availible add-ons.

For a total list of features and an FAQ, see click here.
For a post on troubleshooting, click here.

Though not tested on any version of vBulletin lower than 3.7.4, in theory it should work on versions 3.5 and higher (just dont quote this bit!).

Big thanks goes out to all those in the community that have supported this mod. Especially Digital Jedi who gives great support on this mod and has created over 160 definitions for this system alone!


Installation/Upgrade
  • Upload the contents of the forums folder into your forums directory and import the product-ame.xml file into your product manager (if upgrading, choose 'yes' to overwrite previous installation).
  • After installation, make sure that the system is on (admincp->AME CP->Settings)
  • Then you may want to try to rebuild old URLs via the tools option.

Hey, Geek, where descriptions are inserted into DB? I have ISO-8859-2 forum, and titles from YT containing characters outside of ASCII7 are destroyed (guess it is not iconved).

Wha? Where on earth did you hear that HTML needed to be on?

Er... do you mean the titles for the link? When you post a link to youtube and you have extraction on, it will go fetch the page title and lin it up as [ame="url"]title of page[/ame]

I did some encoding for multiple languages, but as I only speak English (and not very well) I am at a disadvantage.

It only works if I have HTML enabled for the forum. Otherwise, I get only the link showing up instead of the video.

See here - it is publicly available on my forum
http://forum.olympusclub.pl/showpost...postcount=1128
And second video should contain "Paweł" not "PaweĹ�" on title bar as it is on original youtube page
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zlFbqtNjB0A
Hope will be able to find where you are writing it, but you know your code and can hint me, where to search for it. iconv is needed.
Would love to run my forum on UTF, but you know, it is not supported ;-)

Regards

This is the error message that I am getting:

The path to your file cache is set to /amecache/ which appears to be invalid and as such, the file cache is not correctly working. The suggested default value is /hermes/bosweb/web183/b1838/ipg.drjdh/amecache/.

Can you post a link as an example.

Not sure where the encoding will need to be done. Most likely here:

in includes/ame_bbcode.php specifically function ame_fetch_www_title

or possibly here (though this is at runtime):

includes/ame_bbcode.php

That is a warning that your path to the file cache is incorrect. It needs the full server path to the folder. Listen to AME, she is giving you the answer

Ok, I got it working.

Problem: Needed to install the Product-ame.xml AFTER the files are uploaded.

Silly me

I think the definition for clipfish has changed, cause it doesn't work.

This is an example expression What is the Media Definition Code, Regular expression and Replacement so that I can fix it?

I've seen this referred to in this thread but can't fix the fact that YouTube embeds are consistently showing "YouTube- Broadcast Yourself." as the video title. Other video providers work e.g. DailyMotion with no problem so I assume the site is correctly CURLing.

Where does "YouTube- Broadcast Yourself." come from as I can't see it stored anywhere in the AME code/definition or in the source of the actual YouTube page?

Any ideas on what might be the cause? I can't see any other plugins that should be interfering with it.

I've tried/checked the steps below as well as a complete uninstall/reinstall of the product to no avail.

1- Make sure you are on 2.5.6
2- Edit your youtube definition to make sure the 'validation' setting is empty
3- Save the definition anyway (that will rebuild your cache)
4- Edit and save one of the posts you were having problems with

The title is pulled from the the destination page; the URL itself. If the page is saying something different from what your getting, than maybe you don't have extraction turned on, either globally or in the definition itself. Either way, for titles to be pulled, you have to have extraction enabled.

Cheers for the reply. It's on in both places hence my confusion. It must be getting "YouTube- Broadcast Yourself." from somewhere? With extraction off it just shows "YouTube" as expected.

I appreciate it's working for other people so I'm debugging it myself but just wondered if there was anything I may have forgotten.

Thanks again.

EDIT: Ok, it's YouTube - because a lot of requests have come from my domain they show a verification page where you have to enter a code before the actual content is shown. This verification page has the title "YouTube - Broadcast Yourself." Not sure if I can get round it but thought I'd report it in case other people hit the same thing.

i dont know what happened....something to do with my crappy host im sure due to issues i just had with them.

anyways, the videos arent showing up now. i have to click edit and then save to have the video show up. the link to the video is still in the post, but its not showing itself in the thread at all, even a link or title. so i click edit, and i see the link in the threads original area, and i click save and the video loads....

this is happening on all the threads. what can i do to fix this?
