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!

Hi. I recently installed your mod into my forum, however this message appears everytime I try to go into the video directory:

you do not have permission to access this page. This could be due to one of several reasons:

Your user account may not have sufficient privileges to access this page. Are you trying to edit someone else's post, access administrative features or some other privileged system?
If you are trying to post, the administrator may have disabled your account, or it may be awaiting activation.

Could anyone please explain to me, how to enable all of my members to have access to the directory? Thanks

I think you should go to usergroups and give permissions from there to every group you have.

michael5472,

That means that you didn't CHMOD the directories correctly as in step 2 of the installation instructions above. Make sure that the "videothumbnails" and the subdirectories are CHMOD 777.

Some of my members are asking for editing options in the comment box like the ones in the reply box in vbulletin, bold,center, colors...etc. Is this possible?

sorta disappointed developer just ignored this and multiple other people who had the same issue.

It is a plugin conflict, and rather than say what, you are experiencing is a plugin conflict, try to disable your other plugins to fix the error, the problem just sits ignored.

It has nothing to do with rebuilding your limits after an upgrade as we installed 1.3 fresh.

If you are getting this error just try shutting off plugins one by one.

We had a problem with VBobtimise and this plugin. We set the vid directory general settings to NOT cache styles.

That's kinda what "Not Supported" means.

thanks for that update on what the mod feature icons mean above.

these issues are from 2009 and the developer responded to numerous posts directly after people posted this same issue and just ignored these people, so thats why IMO it was really "disappointing" that he helped and supported the mod to some people and not to others.

Seems odd that you would respond about that now. Looking back at the numerous posts you mention, seems it was addressed. Just never fixed before he could no longer support this mod.

i'm responding now because it just happened to me and it was not addressed by anyone. I read through about 40-50 pages of posts about it looking for a solution. Just people saying, yea same thing happened to me since i upgraded.

the developer said to one guy, looks like these guys didn't rebuild their limits after upgrading. which has nothing to do with the error and was of no help. As i said we installed fresh and had this issue.

First of all = Thanks for the modification share Jaxel! Much appreciation.

I would like to change the default youtube embed player from the 480x385px older size to the newer youtube 640x360px player. I'd like the larger player for all pages which parse the embed code, including the one in forum thread posts. How can I do this please?

Again - thanks for the share. I'd appreciate some assistance with this my fellow vBNerds :P

Jacquii.

Hello?? Any suggestions??
I'd appreciate some assistance - Does anyone know how to change the default youtube player size to 640x360px instead of the older "block" size 480x385px

Thanks in advance!

Jacquii.
