This mod has been rewritten for vB4x here:

This modification is based on the Video-Directory modification by Survivor and
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:
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.
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.
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!

Bug on Uninstalling Process:

When I Tried to Uninstall the Mod on a Test Forum, I received the Following Two (2) Errors; is Important Jaxel that you include a Logic Sentence that If Any of the Table don't Exist then Continue to the Next Steps, because the Process Gets Stopped for Each Missing Table.

Tables: ZZZvideotag and ZZZvideotagvideo

I had to go to phpMyAdmin, Create the Tables with 1 Field in them (Any), and then Run the Uninstall Process for it to Complete Fine, but the Sentence on the Uninstaller is Very Important for Not to get this Errors:

ZZZ are Table Prefixes.

My Best Regards.

First Error:

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

Second Error (it happened after the first one, so I had to create the first Table Twice for the Uninstall Process to be Completed):

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)

Hey Jaxel,

An impressive feat, I don't think a year of messing with PHP/VB and MySQL, I could achieve what you have done with this application. Impressive indeed. However,I'm having a bit of problem with people posting comments on videos that have been posted. Each new comment seems to tab the previous comment over one. This issue only happens in the "Safari" Browser, I've checked with FireFox and it seems to be working fine. I'm not sure what's causing this but I believe it might be a CSS class issue, moreover, could you assist me?

Edit: I was wondering if you would be releasing more hoster-sites, if yeah, then I won't try a miserable attempt at drawing one out on my own. I'll just wait for yours.

Thank you very much,

Jaxel, first off thank you for this cool mod.
I have a few questions/request.

How do I make some of the videos viewable to some groups and not the rest.
How do i go about making it show videos on my own site, do any one have a plug in for this plug in?
can the the number of videos that a person uploaded or last video watched show up in the user profile?

Hi guys,
I have getting this error whenever I try to watch any video:
"You are not logged in or you do not have permission to watch videos."

But the strange thing is I can upload videos.

All the permissions are appropriately set for the categories but even the system administrator is getting that message. I saw some previous posts in this thread where people said they have resolved the issue but they never said how

Can someone please help me resolve this issue.

First of all, I found NO instructions for uninstalling this mod. So I uninstalled it from the Product Manager in my admincp and now I'm getting database error reports emailed to me. Help please!

- Ok, my bad on this one. I removed the product but hadn't removed all of the uploaded files yet. It seems after removing all of the video directory files from my server I am no longer getting database error messages.

Fabulous addition. Exactly what I was looking for.

So far the addition of videos has been extremely easy, but I have received this error on a video or two:

"The response of the video-server can't be read."

That error came while adding a series of videos and this was the 6th out of 9 videos. The others in the series were fine. I can't "Load the information" or add it by hand either. I saw two others in this forum with the same error, but I couldn't find an answer if one was given, so if I missed it forgive me.

Any ideas?

Also, I love the idea of having an "add video" button on the front page and then having a drop down select box for categories. Would make it much easier for users to understand

Thanks again for the fab mod.

Edit: I think it maybe that there was a _ in the video number/url. Not sure, but that seems to be the only difference. I added it by hand directly to mysql and it works fine on the frontend now, I just couldn't add it.

I am using CleanBlue style, and this is how it looks like after I have installed this:

It worked fine on all the other styles. So I don't have any idea on what file to go and what to do so it would work on this style as well. Hopefully someone can give me a solution
