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!

rapidphim,

If you didn't add the information in automatically by clicking "load information" when uploading the video, then you'd have to go back into the video detail page for that particular video, click on "edit" and then enter the minutes and seconds in those spaces next to the tag field.

btw, do you know how to not allow posting video on the main category? Example

Main Catagory: no video should be posted
----Category A: video posted
----Category B: video posted

Things like that..... Thanks much.

Jaxel, I just noticed that the 'FH Video Directory Mod' is showing the 'latest comments' as the first comment made and not the most recent. Should I go through the actual mod's developer for assistance or would you (or anyone else) know the quick fix on that?

Check here for what I mean....

www.glamrocktalk.com (below "notices" I have the Video FH section)

....you can see that the most recent video is "Queen - Under Pressure (Live at Wembley Stadium 1986)" and the "Latest Comment" was placed by Rothnroll. But, if you go to the video detail for that video....

http://www.glamrocktalk.com/video.ph...ils&videoid=68

....you can see that the "latest comment" is actually by GRTArnyVee. Any help would be appreciated.

How come this mod uses so many queries?

video.php?do=viewcategory&categoryid=10 (1 video) takes 9 queries
video.php?do=viewcategory&categoryid=12 (17 videos) takes 25 queries (!?)

you'd think the amount of shown videos in a category would be 'query independant'? For example: when I set the amount of videos to be shown in the vbadvance video directory module from 3 to (for example) 6 videos, it has no influence on the amount of queries for that page. Shouldn't it be cached or something?

When many people browse through the video directory at a particular moment, it really stresses the server.

TCB, how do you determine how much each video takes as far as queries? I'd like to compare how things are running on my site as well.

Just install the microstats mod (http://www.vbulletin.org/forum/showt...ght=microstats). Although it says it's for vb3.6, it still works like a charm on vb3.8

Is there an easy way to get the vB or the vBSEO social bookmarking features to display in this hack? Particularly on each video page.
