From the team who brought you the blockbuster film "Yahtzee!", comes the next major motion picture about incredibly bad and arbitrary puns:

AME 2.5.7: Electric Boogaloo

AME automatically embeds media in posts without the need for pesky BBCode cluttering up your editor toolbar. It's also lightweight, and saves resources that BBCode would ordinarily consume. Your users don't even have to know you have AME installed. If they share a link from YouTube, Dailymotion, Amazon, Metacafe or Vimeo, AME automatically embeds the content for them. No special code to learn. No instructions for newbies to understand.

In addition, AME allows you to create, import and export support for individual websites in the form of media definitions. These XML files expand your AME to support a limitless number of websites from around the net and let you share them with the community. We currently have around 200 media definitions collected at this repository thread. If you want additional support for website not listed, please ask for it there. Odds are, we might already have one. (TIP: Be sure to check the Add-Ons section below for stuff you might miss out on, otherwise.)


This modification was originally built by The Geek, who is no longer coding for vBulletin. We miss him. But he gave permission for someone to continue to build upon his work. All I've done is modify the code a little to support additional functionality and to provide a place to continue to support the product. The product didn't need too much tweaking, but I did manage to add some new features I think you will enjoy, which I'll lay out in the feature list below.


It is HIGHLY recommended that you read the READ ME.html file included in the ZIP file before you upgrade or install. You don't want to be blind-sided, now do you?

  1. Download and Unzip the contents of the ZIP file.
  2. Upload the contents of the "UPLOAD to Forum Root" folder to your forum's root directory. (This is the directory where your vBulletin is physically installed.) Also, if you've renamed your Admin CP folder, be sure to move the admincp folder's contents to your renamed directory.
  3. CHMOD your amecache folder to 777.
  4. Go to your Admin CP ╗╗ Plugins & Products ╗╗ Manage Products ╗╗ Add/Import Products and import the product-djs_AME-2.5.7.xml file.
  5. Your Admin CP should automatically refresh and you should now see the AME CP somewhere below your vBulletin Options menu.


If you are upgrading from AME 2.5.6.
  1. Delete custom definitions specifically for Amazon, Dailymotion, Metacafe, Vimeo and YouTube. (Key names: amazon, dailymotion, metacafe, vimeo and youtube) Theses five definitions are now hard coded into the product and will be updated along with the product if need be. You can back these up if you need to, but keep in mind if you use any custom defs for these sites, they will be duplicated every time you upgrade AME. So don't ask my why your videos are doubled up, or I'll throw rocks at you.
  2. Upload the contents of the "UPLOAD to Forum Root" folder to your forum's root directory, overwriting previous versions of the files.
  3. Ensure that your amecache directory is still CHMOD'd to 777.
  4. Import the product-djs_AME-2.5.7.xml file into your Product Manager, making sure to set the option to Allow Overwrite to Yes.
  5. If you are using the file cache, it is strongly recommended that you re-sync your cache using the Tools menu.


The following five posts will include:
  • Additional Screenshots
  • Full Features List
  • FAQ
  • Resources to develop your own custom definitions
  • AME History/Changelog

Are you running only default definitions? There's no Game Informer there. Not even in my repository set. No Game Informer links should be trying to convert, and .aspx links wouldn't react without first matching the domain name.

Yep. My bad. Installed DBSEO at the same time, and it was it's URL rewrite rules. For some reason it crashes when trying to pull titles from .aspx pages.

Thanks for the reply though it forced me to use my brain for a second!

I just updated one of my forums to AME 2.5.7. I uploaded the files (3 times and with a new download) and I uploaded the new main xml a couple of times with overwrite but I still only had YouTube and Amazon as video options showing in ame's AdminCP.

Products/Plugins shows AME 2.5.7.

So, I exported the missing standard video options from another of my websites - just the missing vimeo, etc -- and uploaded those via import.

Now those options show up in ame's admincp and are activated, but vimeo clips still aren't being embedded.

Is it a VB version issue? I'm running 3.7.3. As I mentioned I'm running 2.5.7 on a 3.8.7 vb install and it works just fine.
UPDATE: FIXED! Turns out I had to uninstall the Product XML and then reinstall it. That fixed everything. Thanks.

Many thanks for the hack it works great!!!

However we face a problem. Because previously we were using another hack to do this work, right now all the previous posted video links are just showing as link and do not embed.

Is there any query or fix for this issue?

p.s We have noticed that if you just press edit in a post and submit again without any change, the link converted correctly.

Is there a way to embed remotely hosted files, similar to how the locally hosted embedding works?

I can't delete some of DJ AME definitions, after selecting definitions to be deleted or not active and clicking save, it show display order saved, but doesn't do anything all settings stays the same. Any ideas?

I have moved my VPS recently, set new location for amecache and 777.

I don't suppose there is a version that will work on vb5? We just upgraded and this is the one mod we didn't check

Damn so everyone that used AME for years is SOL now? That sucks... is here at least a way to transfer the embed code back to url form so there aren't weird characters and other things showing in old posts?

VB software kinda sucks now
