From the inventors of Swiss Cheese and the Egg comes AME - The Automatic Media Embedding System.

Note that Version 2.0.0 can be found here

AME is derived from GAL 6 base code but instead of linking keywords, it converts URLs that users paste or enter in their posts into inline embedded video streams.

Big credit goes out to mfyvie for the original concept that jazzed me up enough to lift code that I have been working on to radically improve his fresh idea. Though the same goal, I have taken a totally different approach to his initial release. This mod is 100% steaming fresh code straight from the Geeks oven of love.

First... the overview

AME scans new and edited posts for pre-defined patterns of URLs (i.e. youtube's). If it finds a match, it swaps the url tag for an ame tag.
When a post get parsed for bbcode and an ame tag is found, instead of hammering away at the post with umpteen bbcodes, AME quietly figures out which pre-defined embedding should be placed there and... viola', you have a pretty little embedded video like this:

Attachment 66927

This is significantly faster, has much lower overhead and is much easier to manage than loads of bbcodes or a than scanning every single post as the user views it to see if there are any conversions that need to be made.

Now for the bells and whistles

AME:
  • is lightweight as it does all of her chores without the overhead of having 1 bbcode per pattern or trying to parse a post every single time it gets displayed with a bunch of patterns. This radically reduces overhead and speeds up the processing. The only time ame will kick in is after creating a new post or after editing an existing one (or if an ame tag is found in a post)
  • is extensible. She allows you to add, edit, delete, import and export patterns. That way you can decide which services to support, how they should look and then share them with others!
  • can extract the title (requires your server to allow url wrappers with fetch_contents)
  • can extract embed code from sites whose URLs do not contain sufficient information to embed the video
  • can rebuild your old posts to convert your 'other' mediaish tags into URL tags.
  • can rebuild your old posts to convert URL tags into ame tags where needed
  • can convert her codes BACK to url codes so you're not stuffed with a bunch of dead tags if you uninstall!
  • won't uglify your site by having videos appear in quotes, php, code or html blocks (blech!)
  • can be globally disabled
  • can be excluded from forums
  • can exclude usergroups
  • can be toggled on/off per post
  • would cook dinner for you if she had arms
  • can wrap the output in a 'container' with original URL
  • has a super comprehensive admincp help system. Yes, I actually took the time to add all the info you need into vB's admincp help system. If you ask a silly question in this thread that is addressed in the help system, you will be taunted.
  • is fully phrased
  • has hooks around integral operations so you can extend it

Add ons

AME comes configured with YouTube, Myspacetv, Google Video, Bolt, iFilm, Yahoo, Dailymotion, Amazon and MetaCafe Support built in. Since the amount of providers are always changing and most sites will only need a particular amount, AME has been designed with an import and export system to allow members to easily share formats with one another. In fact, the second post of this thread is updated periodically to relflect those add ons. Currently there are over 12 more additional formats contributed by AME users. Click here to see them.

Installation
  • Upload the contents of the forums folder into your forums directory and import the product.xml file into your product manager.
  • 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.

Troubleshooting

A note about support and such

I have my plate pretty full with taking care of my commercial mods and the support that comes with them. Saying that, I will help when I can - but to be honest, I have ensured that there should be little to no support needed on this mod as it is very much self contained.
Please do not PM or post asking me to give you regexp's to support additional media streams. I built the system so that you can add your own providers as well as the ability to import and export them. If you still need a pattern but are not great with regular expressions (who is?) then I suggest getting RegExpBuddy. Although I am not expert at regular expressions, I did a quick start tutorial on AME regexps here if you want to check it out. I don't mind you guys asking amongst each other for these things, but just note that I will most likely not respond to the requests.

I will reserve the first couple of posts in this thread to periodically add user contributed patterns to import and for additional information (I hate mega long first post's in the release section). So check there for up to date information.

Have you checked your settings to see if it is disabled? Looks like it is by default. THen do a quick edit/save. I just checked it on my vbseo site and it seems fine.

You should use tcat and thead, thead for the name of the video hoster, eg. Youtube or Veoh. and tcat for the name of the video, like Superman fights back or How to cook bejcon.

Rene, edit the google regexp to this:


Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

That will take care of the extra parameters that is causing a false return. Ill update the installer accordingly for the next update.

@Lucky, I am planning on doing this for named URLs (i.e. those with names in them) but wont otherwise as it would require going off site to try and figure out what the name is

here is your myvideo.de

regexp:

embed

The others are pretty easy as they look like some of the default ones that are installed. I was going to export these for you, but I just found a small bug in the importer. Ill upload a new one later tonight so we can start the exporting and importing

installed here with no problems.... but is there a list of "supported" sites other than the ones listed in the admincp? Just wondering because the previous version seemed to support more than the 6 video services i see listed in the admin section.

and is there any way to get the title in from the youtube clip? I know previous versions of these media players would list the window as "youtube - title of the clip". it makes it easier to see exactly what you are watching before you click the play overlay because you cant tell alot of the time based on the initial image.

@Aggie, the beauty is that any site can be supported. No need to wait for someone to add support for you - you can add what you want now (it doesnt have to just stop at viedo sterams... think amazon.com referrer ).
I only included the most popular to start with, but thanks to the importer and exporter, I am sure it is only a matter of time until everything is out there

I started looking into putting the title in... Its not as big of a deal as I thought so I am doing it now. I agree that it looks much nicer

Glad I could get you something Goth...
