This is a new modification, spawning from the old VB 3.x Video Directory modifications.
For all intents and purposes, both my old Video Directory Remixed mod, and Survivor's original Video Directory mod have been discontinued. Neither of us are maintaining these older versions, they will not receive any future updates and we will not be providing any support. This version has a new name because it has been completely rewritten from scratch and is not being built on Survivor's old code. Because of this, if you are upgrading to this new version, from the old version, be sure to read this entire post in order to understand the upgrade process.

What is this mod?
Simply put, this mod is a directory for media. It supports URL inputs, in order to extract meta data and directorize media into a simple and easy to understand library. Users can add their favorite media from a select few online distribution centers (such as Youtube or Vimeo) and categorize and tag them as they see fit. This mod offers rudimentary support for the hosting of local media. An administrator can upload a media to the /customVID/ (default) directory; then add the media to the library using the URL code of "local:filename". Media hosted locally will be displayed using JWPlayer, but will not provide meta data, so that kind of information will need to be entered manually.

Demo:
http://www.8wayrun.com/media.php

Features:
  • Integrated directly into the vBulletin user database and product manager.
  • Fully phrased and built on tempaltes for easy re-skinning and styling.
  • Simple to use administration features and usergroup permission settings.
  • Landing page with the most recent, most popular and highest rated media.
  • Ability to add media into a single category, while adding multiple tags.
  • Ability to browse media through categories, tags, and user contributions.
  • Summary tag cloud with a link to the entire list of tags in the system.
  • Comment and rating system based on AJAX including graceful degredation.
  • Individual RSS Feeds for newest videos, categories, tags and user media.
  • Search function for titles and descriptions.
Installation:
If you are upgrading from before version 1.1, please install that version first.
  1. Upload all the files in the "upload" directory of the attached zip file to your forum root.
  2. CHMOD the /customVID/thumbs/ directory to full read/write/execute 777 permissions.
  3. CHMOD the /customVID/sitemap/ directory to full read/write/execute 777 permissions.
  4. Import the product file called "product-medialibrary.xml" in the Product Manager of vBulletin.
  5. Set your usergroup permissions and media library settings in your administration control panel.
  6. OPTIONAL: Enable the "Generate XML Media Sitemap" scheduled task in your administration control panel.

    NOTES: Make sure you decide what you wish to use for your thumbnail quality setting. By default, thumbnails are saved at 50% quality. At 50%, thumbnails will only be 2kb in size, but at the expense of quality. At 100%, thumbnails will be about 15kb in size, but will have the highest quality. I recommend setting it to 80%, which would leave thumbnails at 5kb in size with still excellent quality.

    Every time you change your thumbnail quality setting, you will need to run the "Rebuild Media Thumbnails" to see any changes.
Upgrading from VDR:
  1. The "video*" tables from your previous installation of VDR need to exist in your database.
  2. Enable the "media ADMIN import" plugin in the plugin manager of your control panel.
  3. Run the "Import Media from VDR" process in your update counters menu in maintenance.
  4. Disable the "media ADMIN import" plugin in the plugin manager of your control panel.
  5. Run the "Rebuild Media Thumbnails" process in your update counters menu in maintenance.
  6. You may now uninstall VDR once you confirm everything has been imported as intended.

    NOTES: You will mostly likely get at least one error while rebuilding media thumbnails...

    When you get an error, click the details link for that media. If the media displays some sort of error such as "This video has been removed" or "This video no longer exist", then that means that media is gone and you'll be unable to generate a thumbnail for that particular media. Use the available options on that media's detail page to DELETE it from your library. Then go back to your browser window which is rebuilding thumbnails and click the "retry from this position" link.

    If you got an error for a media, but after clicking the details link you can find no obvious error with the video; then the error could have just been a simple syn/ack failure. Just click the "retry from this position" link and the system will try to rebuild that thumbnail again.
Known Bugs:
There is a conflict with this modification and some of Valter's VSA modifications that will prevent navbar permissions from being handled correctly. I don't know exactly who's fault it is; but I'm pretty sure there are no errors in my code that would be causing this problem. There is a work around for this however.

Hey is there a Way to Clear all Favorites from all videos
Ive found a bug and some members boosted the "Most Popular Media" up by doing this

When Guests can rate the videos they can also add them as Favorites but they can add it over and over again and it clocks them up

Thanks

Definitely not what I want to do. Most regular posting on vbulletin has a moderation queue option, and I think it would work well here, especially if you add permissions for who can post videos into what.

For now I will make do with a submissions thread in the forum. For my site this is mainly a staff maintained video gallery, but the option of having partial member submissions would be useful.

Jaxel, I'm having trouble with the SEO links on the latest version. If I set them to be enabled then it seemingly correctly rewrites the link (media/mX-title) but it returns a 500 internal server error upon trying to view it. I've opened up the apache error log and it gives me;

Sun Jun 20 19:26:36 2010] [error] [client XX.XXX.XXX.XX] Request exceeded the limit of 10 internal redirects due to probable configuration error. Use 'LimitInternalRecursion' to increase the limit if necessary. Use 'LogLevel debug' to get a backtrace., referer: http://www.gamingperfection.com/testvb/forum/media.php
EDIT:

Turning on debug and now have the following;

Any ideas? It was working in a previous version but I skipped a few before this and didn't save it so can't compare any changes made in .htaccess.

EDIT 2: Found this bug report which seems to have something to do with it. I deleted the MVC part which fixes the 500 error but now it gives me a 404 not found error. Is there some setting/module that I haven't enabled to get this to work for me on my server?

Also, and this is a minor thing, the styling for the media comments header appears in 8WR_media_comment_bit (rather than 8WR_media.css) and seems to be 'hard coded' rather than style-specific.

Hello Jaxel, I recently upgraded to vb 4.0.4 and now my megavideo videos do not show with IE.; they work fine with Chrome and FF but IE gives me : "INVALID OR UNKNOWN VIDEO LINK". Examplle use: http://www.aniworlds.net/forum/media...ails&mid=17738
Try that link with IE, GC and FF and test it out to see what I mean. Any ideas would be very much appreciated. Thanks again for the awesome mod .

NOTE.: I just also discovered that in the description area where we add the mirrors to those episodes , the megavideo mirrors work fine. That being the case I can conclude that it is a problem with Media Library, maybe with the upgrade to vb 4.0.4 caused this somehow? The upgrade has caused some style issues but nothing mayor.

I can confirm this, but the same thing happened to me on 4.0.2 and 4.0.3 so I don't think it's a 4.0.4 issue.

MegaVideo videos show the "INVALID OR UNKNOWN VIDEO LINK" error in IE, but work fine in Chrome/FF.


-------------------------------------------------------
Edit: Heres a temporary fix for MegaVideo videos to work again in IE.

Media Library > Services

Edit the MegaVideo service and in the Embed box, replace it's contents with the following:

hi, thanks for this vb4-version - it's a cool hack.

if i try upgrading from VDR i got this mySQL-error:
"Table 'vb4.videotagvideo' doesn't exist"

the video-tables are in the database but this one is missing. maybe i tried updating from an older video directory version?

can i create an empty table "videotagvideo" by hand to get the media library running? if this works, can anybody please post the structure of this table?

thank you,
markus
