From the makers of the letters O and Yea comes the hottest 'must have mod' of the season: AME 2.5 - The Return of The Hot Mama.

Thanks everyone for making AME 2.5 Mod of the Month

AME is the multi award winning modification that smartly scans new and edited posts for URLs from a customisable variety of web sites (i.e. YouTube or Amazon or about 200 others). If it finds a match, AME will 'transform' the URL into inline embedded media without your users ever having to even think about it.

It was important for me to create a system that did not need updating (and subsequent reinstalling) every time one of the sites it supported decided to change the way it displayed its media (which is all the fricken time). Therefore I built a system in which the 'definitions' for each site could be imported, exported, tweaked and shared on a whim. This way, you only have to import the definitions that you want. It also allows the vB community to get creative and share definitions that I wouldn't of thought of!

Which sites are supported?

Included in the default installation is YouTube and Amazon. At time of posting this, I believe that there are over 180 sites supported that have been created by the vBulletin community. These range from sites that stream videos to Amazon referral links to locally hosted music and video files.

Check out the 'add ons' section of this post below to see availible add-ons.

For a total list of features and an FAQ, see click here.
For a post on troubleshooting, click here.

Though not tested on any version of vBulletin lower than 3.7.4, in theory it should work on versions 3.5 and higher (just dont quote this bit!).

Big thanks goes out to all those in the community that have supported this mod. Especially Digital Jedi who gives great support on this mod and has created over 160 definitions for this system alone!


Installation/Upgrade
  • Upload the contents of the forums folder into your forums directory and import the product-ame.xml file into your product manager (if upgrading, choose 'yes' to overwrite previous installation).
  • After installation, make sure that the system is on (admincp->AME CP->Settings)
  • Then you may want to try to rebuild old URLs via the tools option.

I installed both mods, no errors

I copy a link to a video I found at youtube, I then post a thread at my forums and paste the link, and it doesn't display the video, it just shows a link as I previously stated

First off I was not challenging you to a duel but wishing to be helpful to some, many or most.

What I was talking about specifically was what I thought correctly OR NOT, that you was less than specific and while its not an insult it is an encourgement to post responsibly if you expect premium help.

I immeditly then broke my rule I ask you to follow with a rambling post of how my pages will not load. More properly, I would have had my coder study this for a time and then posted it for Geek to see into.

Version can be the most important thing at times.

Telling what you done to dianose it or trouble shoot it helps as well. If you done nothing then nothing to post there. I think most are going to tell you to upgrade to 3.81 as your first solution to this.

Yeah, I am sorry about my response, I may have been a bit edgy. My apologies

The first solution you suggested was to upgrade to 3.8.1 which I did after reading through the AME Mod thread a bit more. But the YouTube videos are still in url form and not displaying the actual video.

I recieved a p.m from one of my members that they could not see another video I posted from WeGame.com as well. I see it fine, and so do other members, so I am assuming this is something from the users end and not something wrong with the AME mod?

I would like to get the YouTube working though, as this is obviously the most popular video site to link from.

I have not seen any problems with UTUBE since mine went in but then again we really have not tested any since then.

Also have you already had the utube links? OR is this new ones?

Asking due to not sure how you have followed this thread. If they are existing, I think you have to edit each one and just save it without doing more and then it will set it working.

We had to edit all of out links but then I only had maybe 10 music files.

I am sure DJ, Geek or some one will help if this did not.

No, these are brand new links, and I never tried posting a video on my forums before, nor have any of my members. This is something brand new to me.

I may have skipped over a few pages in this thread But I still haven't seen any troubles from other users posting the YouTube vids when I was reading through them. Most I saw were people getting error's, and I am not getting those, just a link from YouTube but no video

I'll keep plugging away in the meantime. Thank you for your help

Does the video have embedding disabled? If only a link appears (with an icon) it means that the destination video has embedding disabled. You can also double check by following the link to see if it has embed code on the page.

The only part that will slow down is when the post is created or edited and you have extraction enabled. This is because with this option set, AME will extract the destination HTML to get some information (i.e. page title). If your sever has a naff connection to these sites, and/or you have a lot of videos in a post, it will slow it down. Once that information has been extracted though, it really takes no longer than normal to display the page.

Remember, you can disable this funationality, though some sites do require it.

Then you had the setting to 'remove AME code' on. This setting is designed to remove AME from your posts (i.e. you were going to uninstall it) instead of leaving behind a bunch of dead bbcode.

-index.html

AdminCP Folder -> AdminCP Folder -> There shouldnt be an admincp folder in your admincp folder!

Images Folder -> Misc Folder
-amazon
-film_go.png

Please tell me where I went wrong. I must get this fixed. Thanks for your support.
Not sure if you have the problem sorted yet, but this is not the correct directory structure at all (and hence why you are having problems). I would suggest that you ask your host to install if you are unsure of how to upload the files.

HTHs!

My slow down is nothing to do with AME then as I have 10 local songs hosted and it is slow all the time recently pitifully slow and not when posting a song or such.

I am sure the problem will be found on my server in time by a 3rd level tech and will have nothing to do with Vbulliten or AmE.

All AME does is replace [ame]url[/ame] with <embed> HTML. That isnt time consuming and certainly not very resource intensive. The only time AME itself will slow things down is IF it is told to go to the destination web page and extract details from it (i.e. the title). In those instances, the additional time is spent in your server downloading the destination web page and parsing it for the details it needs. If your server and/or its connection is pants and/or the destination site is slow or offline, this will cause a noticeable slowdown. However, as mentioned, the only time ame will actually do this is when a post gets saved. Otherwise, AME is about as slow as using a smilie.

The rest is down to what you are embedding. Say for example its a movie from youtube... if the user is on a 14.4k modem, it may take a minute for the youtube video to appear, but that has nothing to0 do with ame or your site, it is actually youtube that the user is waiting on.

I think my biggest problem will be solved when I learn to use and migrate to Red Hat Fedora and get 16 gigs of memory and a quad 6 core processor set up.
