This mod has been rewritten for vB4x here: http://www.vbulletin.org/forum/showthread.php?t=240677

This modification is based on the Video-Directory modification by Survivor and vBPoint.org.
His mod is NOT dead, its still alive and kicking; but he has informed me that he just doesn't have the time to maintain it and give support. So until he is able to work on it agian; I've been doing a series of updates.

What is this mod?

This mod adds a fully featured and fully integrated video directory archive to your forums. Users can add their favorite videos from their favorite video service to the directory. I only support a few select hosters; but the hoster scripting is XML base, so any user can create their own scripts for any number of hosting services. The old MyVideo and Sevenload scripts from Survivor's version will still work, but they wont pull in Keyword/Tagging information, nor the video length time codes.

Basic Feature Listing:
  • Fully integrated into the vBulletin user database and product manager.
  • Fully phrased and built on templates for easy reskinning and styling.
  • Fully administratable and a myriad of settings for personalization.
  • Complete customization of permissions based on usergroups.
  • Landing page for broad information and fully featured tag cloud.
  • Category profiles for videos.
  • Contribution profiles for users.
  • Keyword profiles for tag cloud.
  • Built in comment system for videos.
  • Search function for titles and descriptions.
  • RSS feed of videos.
Product Demo:
http://www.8wayrun.com/video.php
Installation Procedure:
  1. Upload all files in the "upload" directory to your forum root.
  2. CHMOD /videothumbnails/* and /includes/videoserviceapi to 777.
  3. Import the product "product-videodirectory.xml" in your Product Manager.
  4. Follow the on screen instructions to configure your video hoster settings.
  5. Refresh your administration control panel to see the new navigation links.
NOTES:
vBulletin 3.7.0 instituted a new avatar-thumbnail system. There is a high probability that you are unaware of this new system and may have failed to setup your vBulletin to make use of it. Make sure that a directory called /thumbs is located in your avatar directory and CHMOD it to 777. Then go into Maintenance > Update Counters and run the Rebuild Custom Avatar Thumbnails process.
Upgrade Procedure:
  1. Upload all files in the "upload" directory to your forum root.
  2. Take note of the information stored in Limits of Videos > General Settings.
  3. Import the product "product-videodirectory.xml" in your Product Manager.
  4. Re-establish your previous Limits settings in Videos > General Settings.
  5. Re-import ALL of your hosters and settings in Videos > Manage hosters.
    • You MUST remember to re-import your hosters after upgrading.
NOTES:
You may lose your category dataman when you upgrade. If no categories are listed after an upgrade, you will be required to rebuild your category dataman. Its very easy to rebuild it if you need to. Simply go into Videos > Manage categories, select ANY category and hit [Edit], then click [Save]. Your category dataman will automatically be rebuilt.
Roadmap for the Future:
  • Moderation
  • Favorites
  • Playlists
Don't forget to click INSTALL!

Making changes in the bbcode manager window does not work so long as this is active. Any ideas?

robbiefritz, I had the same issue. It's a bit of an annoyance, but before adding your new BBCode, simply deactivate this mod. Then, after you setup the new BBCode, simply reactivate the video-directory mod and you'll be good.

Yep - same thing I do.
It would be nice to see a fix for this issue - but other than that - it's a wonderful wonderful modification.

I really ahate to ask this, but i read thru the last 9 months of posts and cant find a definitive answer.

theis mod was working great, and one of my admins accidentaly chmodded the thumbnails to 644 while wqe were loading our videos up. We realized after 40 videos were loaded with no thumbnails.

i have been reading about using the rebuild custom avatar thumbnails to rebuild, but that did nothing.

Is there a way to rebuild the thumbnails? i would hate to have to go back and reload 40+ videos if i can avoid it.

I never got it to automatically do the thumbnails when I had a similar CHMOD issue. I had to go in and get the thumbnails and update them one by one. Please share if you find a way to do it automatically.

I don't think there is a way to do that without querying your database.
You'd need to edit each vid individually I'd think. Perhaps the OP and/or someone familiar with database queries can help...? Good luck.

I have been using this for a long time and love it. I just wish I could post the videos on the home page.

Is there a way to put a module of, let's say, top videos, on non-vb page?

Thanks

Indeed there is the Video Directory Module for vBa CMPS. I wonderful little modification I use on my boards. You need vBadvanced installed to use this though.

Of course I've customized it a wee bit to better fit the look of my forum, as well as added quick-navigation links to vid categories. Here's what it looks like on my poetry forum:



HTH

Thanks, but needs to be on a vbadvanced page. I am trying to put it on a non-vb page. S static HTML page. Maybe a script that would pull the videos.

I'm having the same issue, it has to do something with the way VBSEO is setup.

Jaxel, I know you are not supporting this mod anymore, but can you shed some light on this on how to go about fixing it?
