vB Version: 3.8.x Rating: (86 votes - 4.83 average) Installs: 703
Released: 06 Jan 2009 Last Update: 31 Jul 2009 Downloads: 7955
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!

Sorry for having two updates in one day... I finally figured this stuff out...

I tried my best to make it as simple as possible to upgrade:
  1. Download new zip file
  2. Upload new files
  3. Re-install new product
  4. Re-set limit settings
  5. Re-import hosters

===========================================================
Version 1.2.1
===========================================================
  • Changed the way certain video hoster setting options work.
    • These options are now global options, instead of being individual to each hoster.
    • There is now a new "Video detail settings" menu in your Admin Control Panel.
    • This change was made so that I could support a plugin based [VIDEO] BB code.
    • You MUST remember to re-import all of your video hosters after upgrading.
  • Added support for plugin based [VIDEO] and [VIDEO=XXX] bbcodes!.
    • There is an option in the general settings to enable or disable these video tags.
    • If enabled, users will be able to embed videos from the video directory in their posts.
    • There are no permission checks on this; if a video is embedded, ANYONE can see it.
    • If you enable video bbcodes, they will replace the existing bb codes in video details.
  • FILE EDITS SINCE 1.2.0: (make sure you upload these new versions!)
    • upload/video.php
    • upload/includes/functions_videodirectory.php
    • upload/includes/xml/cpnav_videodirectory.xml
    • upload/includes/xml/videohoster-Dailymotion.xml
    • upload/includes/xml/videohoster-Metacafe.xml
    • upload/includes/xml/videohoster-YouTube.xml
    • upload/includes/xml/videohoster-YouTubeHD.xml
  • TEMPLATE EDITS SINCE 1.2.0: (make sure you revert these templates!)
    • NEW: video_bbcode
    • some random plugin changes...

Google, Myspace, Yahoo and MSN dont have publicly available per-video XML (not just a REST API). If they dont have a publicly available per-video XML, then there is nothing I can do for it... Dailymotion is already available in the pack... Veoh has one... I'll add it in the next update. A per video XML feed is basically a file that your server can retrieve to get the specific information about a video. If it doesn't exist, then you have nowhere to get the information... Here are some examples...

Veoh: http://www.veoh.com/rest/video/v831782W7CC6yez/details (its mangled, but it should still work)
YouTube: http://gdata.youtube.com/feeds/api/videos/DxkbFNXTfhs (view source)
Dailymotion: http://www.dailymotion.com/rss/video/x7s7tj (view source)
Metacafe: http://www.metacafe.com/api/item/2296082 (view source)

Hello Jaxel, and thank you for this great mod !

Just a question : when I made the upgrade from 1.1.0 RC2 to 1.1.9, I lost all my YouTube videos. I still had my categories, but there were 0 videos in it, instead of more than a hundred.
More surprisingly, I still had the videos on the videothumbnails/youtube folder, but I was not able to see them on my forum.
So I uninstalled the mod and reinstalled the 1.2.1 version.

Next time I will upgrade, is there something I have to take care or to back up if I don't want to lose again all my videos ?

You should not have lost any videos. What you forgot to do was re-establish your limits, or rebuild your category dataman. This will make it LOOK like you have no videos, when they are actually still there. When you uninstalled, thats when you actually lost your videos.

Each category has its own permission. You forgot to set those.
