This is a new modification, spawning from the old VB 3.x Video Directory modifications.
For all intents and purposes, both my old Video Directory Remixed mod, and Survivor's original Video Directory mod have been discontinued. Neither of us are maintaining these older versions, they will not receive any future updates and we will not be providing any support. This version has a new name because it has been completely rewritten from scratch and is not being built on Survivor's old code. Because of this, if you are upgrading to this new version, from the old version, be sure to read this entire post in order to understand the upgrade process.

What is this mod?
Simply put, this mod is a directory for media. It supports URL inputs, in order to extract meta data and directorize media into a simple and easy to understand library. Users can add their favorite media from a select few online distribution centers (such as Youtube or Vimeo) and categorize and tag them as they see fit. This mod offers rudimentary support for the hosting of local media. An administrator can upload a media to the /customVID/ (default) directory; then add the media to the library using the URL code of "local:filename". Media hosted locally will be displayed using JWPlayer, but will not provide meta data, so that kind of information will need to be entered manually.

Demo:
http://www.8wayrun.com/media.php

Features:
  • Integrated directly into the vBulletin user database and product manager.
  • Fully phrased and built on tempaltes for easy re-skinning and styling.
  • Simple to use administration features and usergroup permission settings.
  • Landing page with the most recent, most popular and highest rated media.
  • Ability to add media into a single category, while adding multiple tags.
  • Ability to browse media through categories, tags, and user contributions.
  • Summary tag cloud with a link to the entire list of tags in the system.
  • Comment and rating system based on AJAX including graceful degredation.
  • Individual RSS Feeds for newest videos, categories, tags and user media.
  • Search function for titles and descriptions.
Installation:
If you are upgrading from before version 1.1, please install that version first.
  1. Upload all the files in the "upload" directory of the attached zip file to your forum root.
  2. CHMOD the /customVID/thumbs/ directory to full read/write/execute 777 permissions.
  3. CHMOD the /customVID/sitemap/ directory to full read/write/execute 777 permissions.
  4. Import the product file called "product-medialibrary.xml" in the Product Manager of vBulletin.
  5. Set your usergroup permissions and media library settings in your administration control panel.
  6. OPTIONAL: Enable the "Generate XML Media Sitemap" scheduled task in your administration control panel.

    NOTES: Make sure you decide what you wish to use for your thumbnail quality setting. By default, thumbnails are saved at 50% quality. At 50%, thumbnails will only be 2kb in size, but at the expense of quality. At 100%, thumbnails will be about 15kb in size, but will have the highest quality. I recommend setting it to 80%, which would leave thumbnails at 5kb in size with still excellent quality.

    Every time you change your thumbnail quality setting, you will need to run the "Rebuild Media Thumbnails" to see any changes.
Upgrading from VDR:
  1. The "video*" tables from your previous installation of VDR need to exist in your database.
  2. Enable the "media ADMIN import" plugin in the plugin manager of your control panel.
  3. Run the "Import Media from VDR" process in your update counters menu in maintenance.
  4. Disable the "media ADMIN import" plugin in the plugin manager of your control panel.
  5. Run the "Rebuild Media Thumbnails" process in your update counters menu in maintenance.
  6. You may now uninstall VDR once you confirm everything has been imported as intended.

    NOTES: You will mostly likely get at least one error while rebuilding media thumbnails...

    When you get an error, click the details link for that media. If the media displays some sort of error such as "This video has been removed" or "This video no longer exist", then that means that media is gone and you'll be unable to generate a thumbnail for that particular media. Use the available options on that media's detail page to DELETE it from your library. Then go back to your browser window which is rebuilding thumbnails and click the "retry from this position" link.

    If you got an error for a media, but after clicking the details link you can find no obvious error with the video; then the error could have just been a simple syn/ack failure. Just click the "retry from this position" link and the system will try to rebuild that thumbnail again.
Known Bugs:
There is a conflict with this modification and some of Valter's VSA modifications that will prevent navbar permissions from being handled correctly. I don't know exactly who's fault it is; but I'm pretty sure there are no errors in my code that would be causing this problem. There is a work around for this however.

Video from youtube still loads and plays perfectly.

A feature request: Allow the smilies we have to show in the comment box. Unless I missed a setting somewhere.

marked installed and 5 stars


typo alert:::
::: #3 of the installation instructions reads - " Import the product file called "product-media.xml" in the Product Manager of vBulletin." The file name in the package is "product-medialibrary.xml"
Fixed in next version... apparently... E_DEPRECATED has been... uhh... deprecated...

If Jaxel is interested I can share the files, and he can ignore/use/recode to his hearts desire and release if he sees fit, as it is his MOD

Regards
The thing I dont like about the fisheye is that the menu covers the input box. You cant click on the input box if your mouse is anywhere near the menu. And as we add more hoster services, the menu will get bigger and bigger till you can't click on anything.

Ok that image is just a TAD too big... lol

The link you're looking for isn't in Admin CP. It's on the forum page under the Media tab. You adjust the categories straight from the forum... if you have the permissions set correctly.

Fair comment,

The issue we have is no one will post videos.

So we asked them why.

Essentially, the interface scares the majority. Which I find mad. But they dont realise how to add videos etc.

I havent tried this yet, but as you know: using a related video url from youtube doesnt work with vb, how does this effect Media Library ?

Can the URL be pruned automatically of the ( &feature=related )

Nope... I didn't scroll far enough to the right to see the whole 3000px image. Having said that, isn't that the link right there saying "categories: random media?"

I see what you mean. You're missing the Admin links to the right. The only thing I can think of is that the permissions on the profile you're using isn't correct. I had this issue once trying to fix something and wasn't using my 'admin' profile. I was using a working profile that I added to the usergroup admin but it still didn't have all the correct permissions as a regular admin.

Just thinking out loud here.

===========================================================
Version 4.0.7 BIG BUGFIX ROLLUP
===========================================================
UPGRADERS: If you are upgrading to 4.0.7 follow these steps:
  1. Delete the entire directory /media and all files within it.
  2. Upload contents /upload folder of ZIP file to your forum root.
  3. Import product-medialibrary.xml as a product, allow overwrite.
  4. Run http://URLtoYourForums/media.php?do=admin_host_restore
  • NEW FEATURE: Service Hosters now support secondary service values! This is important for video hosters such as Hulu which purposely obfuscate their embed codes.
  • NEW FEATURE: Submission form for media will now validate fields.
  • NEW FEATURE: Category Descriptions will now parse BBCode.
  • CHANGES: Service Hosters no longer require semicolons at the end of fields.
  • CHANGES: Regex now use # delimeters, so / no longer needs to be \ cancelled.
  • BUG FIX: Comments and Editing boxes have been fixed! This issue was related to the guide here on vb.org being wrong about how to valdiate WYSIWYG textboxes. As a temporary fix, a plugin has been installed that will completely disable WYSIWYG options inside of the Media Library.
  • BUG FIX: ~E_DEPRECATED has been removed, since it has been depricated... oh irony.
  • BUG FIX: Loading media details will no longer prompt a javascript error for favorites.
  • BUG FIX: Thumbnail compression will now default to GD only, until I can find a fix for ImageMagick.
  • BUG FIX: Tags will now strip the following characters from any entry:
    # $ ? & @ % + = ^ | : ; / \ < > { } [ ]

    These characters are reserved URI characters and were giving problems with tags. This fix will fix any NEW tags, however this will not affect your existing tags. I recommend everyone to head to their administrate tags panel and delete any tags which contain any of these characters.
  • BUG FIX: More miscellaneous code and template revisions...
