From the makers of Smooth and Jazz comes the singing sensation my mom has been waiting months for:

AME3. Bigger. Badder. Bestest.

NOTE ABOUT vB4.0.3: ------------------------------------------------------------

vBulletin 4.0.3 has changed the way video codes are handled and in the process, inadvertently broke AME3. I have submitted a bug report and believe that the issue will be quickly resolved. There is a manual fix you can apply for 4.0.3 here in the interim.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

AME3 is the sequel to the multi award winning AME 1x and AME 2x systems. AME3. This time, its different.
AME3 does 3 things:
  • It allows users to simply paste URLs into their message without having to use the video bbcode or video popup box.
  • It allows you to add, edit and customise the video definitions that ship with vB4
  • It allows you to import community created definitions to extend the system in ways you otherwise couldn't.
Now you can use AME anywhere you can use video bbcode: posts, blogs, visitor messages, the CMS, etc...

Note that I am releasing this early for beta testing and general feedback. There is currently a bug in RC2, RC4 and 4.0.0 that will prevent AME from working however there is a workaround posted below.

I have written a pretty comprehensive readme and attached it seperatly to this post. I suspect both this post and the readme will get updated as AME3 becomes finalised.

I am currently in the process of converting to another forum package (that oddly has auto embedding an an extensible video system) in my busy schedule.

As to the points about what AME does versus what vB4x does - well, thats by design. AME2x was far more complex and feature rich than AME3, but that was because I built AME3 on top of vB's video code system for maximum compatibility.

AME sholdn't hae even been needed in vB4 as the additional functionality of AME SHOULD have been out of the box in vB4. The vB video code is limited (but well written) however for whatever reason, it was done without the average user in mind.

Users are bathed in rich and responsive UI's every day now. Gone are the days where users were woooed over your smilies appearing in your wysiwyg editor. Users DO NOT understand or care about popups or tags (we fix about 30 broken quote boxes a day to prove it).

When we click on a smilie, we expect one to appear in our editor. When we do a colon and paren, we expect a smilie to appear in our message. When we paste in a URL into our message, we expect the url to be a link when we read the page. Me (and my users) expect to be able to post a link to a youtube video and it appears in their post.

These are not crazy concepts, they are natural user expectations.

All of the code is there, almost all the functionality is there - but there is a disconnect. Smart linking (of videos) is an important user experience feature that could have been great but instead a non extensible video tag that users have to be instructed about before using.

In regards to definitions - Anyone with minimal regex knowledge could whip out a crap load of definitions simply and easily (heck, 15 minutes looking at the ones there would have gotten people started).

I had also hoped that people would have "got stuck in" and involved in sharing definitions with each other (thats why I spent so long creating import and export systems). But in the end there was DJ and a handful of others trying to help everyone else that wouldn't even try to help themselves. Which is fine and to be expected to a degree - but also sort of sad and deflating.

Anyhoo - those are some of my thoughts on the subject(s). I do hope that AME's functionality gets folded into the core system one day - but sadly I won't be here to see it.

nJoy and thanks for the fish!
Perhaps if you would be kind enough to open up this code to be open for other users to work with it someone could make a new modification based on it? I know I'd appreciate it.

He actually said it was reusable code in an earlier post #754. But he hasn't yet edited his first post (or however it's done) to enable the "reusable code" check box so it's going to be difficult for anyone to know it's okay.

Don't feed in the "content" part... and try wrapping video or url tags around the url. (the part with the MORE link)

I agree. You type colon and parenthesis and an emoticon appears.

You type a URL that you have set to display and it should appear embedded.

Cheers installed and working well on 4.0.3

Awesome, I hope someone else takes it up sometime then.

hi.

Is it possible to remove AME3 and old urls be converted to VB4 default code for video?
Does removing AME3 leave me with broken videos or is there a way of doing this?

Thank you.

Anyone please???

I run rebuild posts but [ame] tags are converted to [url] tags.
Is there a way of converting [ame] tags to [video] tabs used by VB4?

Any help would be appreciated.

Thank you.

I suppose you could search and replace. But problems would occur with any videos that don't work in vb4. i.e., if you changed all your Youporn links from AME to VIDEO, they wouldn't work in vb4 because it doesn't come with a definition for Youporn. Better to change them to urls, then they would still work, though they wouldn't be embedded.
