vB Version: 5.2.6 Rating: (8 votes - 4.88 average) Installs: 26
Released: 26 Jun 2017 Last Update: Never Downloads: 167
Supported Uses Plugins Additional Files Re-usable Code Translations  

All New Version 3.0.2

This mod can do two things:

1. It can automatically grab the title of a page you are linking to
2. It can embed video URLs automatically

For example it will turn:

to Forum - The Official vBulletin Resource!

This is working on both the simple and complex style URL BBcodes, and it will ignore existing links if you have specified a custom title.

It can also turn a link like: into an embedded video without use of the [video] BB Code.

In addition there is an option to auto embed old links that were previously embedded by the AME 2.x mod for vBulletin 3.x. If you still have [AME] BB Codes in your posts this mod can do its best to embed them like they used to be with AME.

Video Embedding is currently working with Youtube (both short and original URLs) and videos.

The Mod should auto install, upload files as instructed in Readme (everything goes in the usual place.) Clear the system cache to see the mod work on existing posts.

If you wanted to undo the changes made by this mod simply delete the files/remove the mod/ and clear the cache. This mod does not alter the original posts, only the cached copies.

This is an update by Rhodium for the mod created by BirdOPrey5 - thanks to both!

The mod now works without the bugs mentioned in the prior version.

Yes I continue to use it on vb 5.5.5 myself. Depending on your server you may need to tweak server settings to make this mod work, such as by activating PHP-FM.

on vBulletin 5.6.0 the title is not "grabbed".
Only video displayed without title.

I'm doing some further testing on this. This might be a function of vb 5.6.x that what is embedded is just a sort of "thumbnail" of the video, and then when you click on it the video opens into a larger frame and in this larger frame appears the video, along with the title.

Does anyone have an older version of vb 5 running? If so, try embedding a youtube video with this Title Tag Grabber disabled, and see what happens.

This "issue" has to do with that in 5.6.x a "thumbnail" of the video is embedded in the post. Upon clicking the thumbnail, only then does the embedded video itself appears within the post, which then includes the video's title and description.

I made an improvement request, please vote for it:

I tested it on a clean 5.5.4 site (no mods running), and then again on the same 5.5.4 site with this mod running, and in either case the title of the youtube video is not pulled. So, I am back to thinking that this seems to be a function of some recent change at youtube's end, and not to do with vbulletin 5.6.1

I just tested it on 5.6.2 and it works fine.

I tested it
via direct URL entering nothing more than the YouTube URL into the body of the post.

via the vbulletin Insert Video Clip function.

Both cases, identical results, the YouTube video is embedded (but, as noted above, in both cases without the title - this appears to be a function of the way YouTube now works, that the YouTube video title is no longer "grabbed.").

Thanks for this, hopefully it keeps working with VB updates.
Mods like this are sorely needed.
