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.)




CREDITS

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.



RECOMMENDATIONS

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?




NEW INSTALLATIONS
  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.



TO UPGRADE

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 default zip program can sometimes be unpredictable. In the beginning, it worked fine for me, too. And I eventually ended up going with ZIPGenius and 7ZIP.

With that said, I did zip the file with the default WIN 7 zipper. Maybe the download was interrupted, somewhere.

Here's the same files zipped using 7zip. See if there's any difference when you try to open.

How are you trying to import the XML, from your computer or your server?

Same error. Must have something to do with my setup, not the downloaded files.

From my computer.

My admincp folder has a nonstandard name. I changed the name of that folder before I uploaded it. It was the same when I was running AME 2.5.6. Could that be an issue with the install?

No it should not matter, try loading the XML to your server, and import it from there.

The XML file needs to be uploaded in ASCII format.

If your Admin CP folder has a different name, did you make sure that the contents of the admincp folder from the ZIP, also went to your renamed admincp folder? They would need to be there to install properly. I was thinking the few times I've seen that error was sometimes because of misplaced files.

I tried running the xml from the server - no joy.

The admincp files did get uploaded to the correct folder.

Can you try another mod from here and see if you still have the same issues, http://www.vbulletin.org/forum/showthread.php?t=303650

That may help us to determine if it something in this mod, or your comp.

I've installed countless mods from here, the last being within the past week.

Well you are having the issue now, not within the past week, this is a step to determine the issue.

BTW, I'm running vB 3.7, not 3.8. AME 2.5.6 runs just fine on it.
