vB Version: 3.8.x Rating: (86 votes - 4.83 average) Installs: 704

Not Supported DB Changes Uses Plugins Auto-Template Additional Files External Content Is in Beta Stage  

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!

The RSS feature would be used to 'feed' the information to either a widget or feature (like this one: http://www.vbulletin.org/forum/showthread.php?t=196332 ) or a news feature ticker (like this one: http://www.vbulletin.org/forum/showthread.php?t=207432 ) to communicate it out to your members/guests.

Hope that helps
Yeah. You are right. I didn't notice that but after a while I found it useless to be posting in a forum. It only gives me 2 instances of the video. I have a youtube mod installed too so as soon as there is a post in a thread it appears as a video again.

Thanks again.

Now I had a hard time moving videos from one category to another. I have to open each video separately then click edit then choose the category...very time consuming. Hope there is an updated way of doing this soon. Other than that, this mod rocks and kicks _ _ _. Thanks a lot.

Use the 'search this thread' feature and type "categories" in it. The answer has been given several times throughout this thread.

I dont suppose anyone has an xml to make this work with photobucket videos do they?

Also, probably a stupid question! But im guessing the version for VB4 does not work on 3.8? I know some mods are backwards compatabile

Question

I Ask My Question Again, I Hope Jaxel or an User that Know How to Do It Might Answer It:

Could You Please Tell me Where Can I Find that Option to Upload New Thumbnails For the Videos?

I Appreciate Your Help.

My Best Regards.

In the Post Jaxel Mentions that there is an Option to Upload New Thumbnails on the Videos, a Great Option to Change the Images and also Upload an Image on Videos Where is Not Possible to Automatically Get the Image From the Video Hosting.

I Appreciate Your Guides and Answers.

My Best Regards.

Inciarco, if you are looking to change an existing thumbnail for a YouTube video, for example. Simply open the directory .... videothumbnails >> YouTube and there you will see the thumbnails for the videos that you have uploaded.

As an example, I have a video uploaded at one of my sites here: http://www.themysterydistrict.com/vi...atures-10.html

The video's URL is here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Pa0SY6RYJIo

That video's thumbnail is here: http://www.themysterydistrict.com/vi...a0SY6RYJIo.jpg

So, as you can see, the video's ID is used as the 'name' of the .jpg file. So, to change the image, I would simply create a new thumbnail (use a size that won't 'break' your style/layout) and rename it as "Pa0SY6RYJIo.jpg" and upload it to your videothumbnails >> YouTube (or YouTubeHD if applicable) directory. Does that help?

I Appreciate Your Answer and Guide. That's the Hard Way to do it, but Jaxel said that the Option to Upload the thumbnails was in the System, I'd Appreciate to Know where is that Option Located? (I haven't Found it Yet).

I Quote His Post:

I'm not sure if I'm going to put in an option where you can change the serviceVAL of a video. The whole idea of changing serviceVALs is problematic, and it should only be done by administrators in the first place. If you are an admin, you can easily edit the serviceVAL yourself in PHPMyAdmin.

SEO Slugs are also done and working PERFECTLY. Check them out on the test site.
My Best Regards.

inciarco,

Are you running the 4.0 or the 3.8x version of vBulletin? I use the 3.8x version and that's the only way that I know of. I believe that the 4.0 is the one that Jaxel is referring to. Good luck!
