vB Version: 3.8.x Rating: (86 votes - 4.83 average) Installs: 704
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!

Mariocaz, I'm using 3.7.4 on one forum, 3.8.0 on another and they are both working. So, it should work. Good luck!

Glad to see you back on.

You get a lot of replies on this thread and it seems like my question is always drowned by all the others by the time you get around to answering.

Any way to make comments count as posts?

But as I said the demo link you have above produces the same result, not just my site!

I was using NetNewsWire (for mac), but it's any newsreader.

Got to you Video Directory, subcribe to your RSS feed (http://www.8wayrun.com/video.php?do=rss)

The links in this editor are getting mangled here when I paste them, so I"m attaching a screen shot instead! The link shown in it has the url that includes the "s=" string in it.

The links work fine for me in Internet Explorer, Firefox and Opera...

Sounds like a mac issue.

It's not a MAC issue. It's any RSS newsreader! It's just more convenient for me to give you the MAC example.

So here is another example, go to this web url - slinkset.com - it contains links taken from your RSS Video Directory feed...notice the link URL's - they do not take you to the exact video, but rather the Video Directory index - the "s=" string is causing them to be redirected to the index instead of the actual video.

Something is generating the "s=" string in the RSS piece of code, whether it's your code or within vBulletin itself. I can't find anything obvious, but I'm not a coder!

Hopefully you or someone can dig deeper....as it is effecting the usefulness of the RSS piece of this.

Hello, and first of all, congratulations on this awesome mod.

I just installed it on my boards, thing is, I use a main table width that's smaller than most of the other boards using vB. I'd like to know where to change the width of the text boxes and / or main tables so they fit my forum (check the screenshots below):



What can I do to fix this? Thanks in advance for your help.

The session tags are generated by vBulletin itself. It's what lets people stay logged into the website, even if they have cookies disabled. I've never had any issues with my forum, and none of my RSS aggregators add the session tags in.

If you want to fix this with your forum, go into functions_videodirectory.php and replace:

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

with:

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

However, if you require people to be logged in, in order to watch videos, your users may have problems if they have cookies disabled.

The codes are in each respective template. I have them so long because I figured no one would have a forum smaller than 1024 pixels in width... I guess I was wrong.
