Thank you for looking at this. It is my first 'product' for vbulletin. I hope you find it useful. Now on to the writeup...

Short Description

Simple YouTube video display module.

Long Description

This mod uses a cron based system to scan recent posts for bbcode-posted YouTube videos. The cron has two settings which can be found in the vBuletin options menu. These settings control the bbcode used to post youtube videos to your forum and the number of data rows to cache in a custom table. Also provided is a vBadvanced module for use in displaying the collected videos.

Cron Features
- BBCode setting
- Cache Limit setting

Module Features
- Cache Limit setting (to further refine your selection per module instance)
- Display Order (Random, Descending, Ascending based on dateline of the post)
- Maximum Rows
- Maximum Columns (per row)
- Maximum Characters (for truncating overly long thread titles)
- Player Width
- Player Height
- Automatic Playback (just in case you want to display a single item as a 'feature')
- Loop Playback
- Window Mode (opaque or transparent)
- Source Forums (to refine your selection by a forumid list)
- Show Links (to display Post By and In Thread links under the video)

Installation
- Ensure you have a working bbcode to post videos with (see below)
- Download the zip file and extract it
- Upload the *.php files to their proper locations
- Use 'Manage Products' in the admincp to install the product-videomax.xml file
- Use 'Upload Module' in the vBa CMPS cp to install the module-videomax.xml file
- Run the default cron once, manually, to get initial data.

Suggested BBCode
- works in all tested browsers (ie, ff, safari - latest versions each)

<object type="application/x-shockwave-flash" width="425" height="355" data="http://www.youtube.com/v/{param}">
<param name="movie" value="http://www.youtube.com/v/{param}" />
<param name="play" value="0" />
<param name="wmode" value="transparent" />
<param name="quality" value="medium" />
<param name="loop" value="0" />
</object>

That's all there is too it. Enjoy!

Defkalion, I wrote it on 3.7.0 Gold, so I cannot guarentee that it works in anything less. However, There were not that many changes between the two in terms of what this mod does. You can try it and report here so other will know.

Always remember to backup your database and file tree before any modification!

Hi RagingPenguin,

I tried to do it for 3.6.8, but when I try to Use 'Upload Module' in the vBa CMPS cp to install the module-videomax.xml file I get an error saying that:

The file you have uploaded is not a valid module file.
The product xml file however installs with no problem, so I assume something wrong is going on with the cmps module, but what?

Do you have any ideas?

Defkalion, I will setup a vbtest installation as 3.6.8 later today and re-export. Expect a post then. It should work for you after that.

NegativeSMoke, you would add bbcodes in the vbuletin admincp. If you need specific steps explained, they are in the vbulletin manual at the following links.

I use passivevid to display my youtube video's.

Would there be anyway to make this work with that.

Def, what version of the CMPS are you using? I have the 3.6.8 vbtest forum up and need to know so I can export it for you in the right format.

Hey, I'm using

CMPS v3.0.0

and

CMPS v3.0 RC2

on my two diferrent websites. I plan to use this mod in both. If I have to upgrade to a CMPS specific version just say so, don't waste any time on my account.

Ok I managed to make it work with CMPS v3.0.0.

The only problem is this:

It brings in my frontpage let's say 4 videos, but only one has a preview - the rest only have the thread title where the video was posted. So it only brings back videos that are posted like this:

[youtube]5da9sd43[/youtube]
bbcode type and not the codes that are posted like this:

[youtube]http://youtube.com/watch?v=-gVtWZ36_BA[/youtube]
Is this correct?

If so, is there any way to make it work with the second bbcode type also, or if that is not possible, to make it work ONLY with the second bbcode? Because all my members post the second type in the forums.

Thanks.
