Not Supported DB Changes Uses Plugins Template Edits Additional Files  

This mod was inspired by by Embed XHTML valid YouTube and Google Video into your posts but this mod contains some bugs and isn't complete so I then needed to modify it and decided to do it really well and aply SEO technology to it.

This mod will enable your users to publish YouTube or Google videos on your forum. It's managable via the adminpanel and the script will automaticly download the titles of the videos from YouTube or Google Video and store it in the database so it will get the videos indexed verry well and it's fast.

Some of the features:
  • Custom tagnames, manageable from the adminpanel
  • Automatic Video Title retrieval, with optional support for Lib Curl and user-simulated video title retrieval
  • Custom editor icons, managable from the adminpanel
  • Template based Google or YouTube video output
  • Support for local Google Video servers, to make your site local
  • Phrases for all text so it has support for multi-lingual forums
  • Optional, extend all links within the video with rel="nofollow", customizable seperately for YouTube or Google Video
  • Custom Video titles via tag option ([googlevideo="Video Title"]...[/googlevideo])
  • SEO Video Index (demo)
  • SEO Video Bar (demo)
  • Ability to configure usergroups that have access to delete videos.
  1. Import the XML product
  2. Upload the attached icon images (or use your own)
    • Default is:
      • /images/editor/google.gif
      • /images/editor/youtube.gif
  3. Open htaccess.txt, configure it (replace yourdomain with your domain), save it as .htaccess and upload it to the root of your forum
  4. Run the included installer
    • The installer will also upgrade previous instalations
    • Bug: when you run the installer more then once, multiple of the same indexes are created. I haven't found a way yet to prevent this. I have posted some messages on MySQL forums to find an answere and will then upgrade the installer. For now it is adviced to run the installer just once and for upgrades it is adviced to check the PREFIXseovideos table after upgrading to see if there are any duplicate indexes configured to remove them if needed.
  5. To install the Videobar anywhere on the forum use the folowing code:

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


Have Fun!

MM doesnt seem like this mod is still being supported, what happened to him. I find the videos work well in the forum but the icons doesnt show up on quick reply and in advanced it shows the text which look horrible. I think its better to uninstall this mod its way to full of buggs.

Home someone writes a decent one, any good replacements you guys can point me to ?

I see so many people running it properly. Glad for you.
But please share the knowledge. The developer seems to be absent for a long time.

My videos.html page works but the youtube source is messed up, i get a blank space.
Normally the link must be :
Well, mine is :
(on all videos)
Example from the page source :
<object width="255" height="207" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" data="">
<param name="movie" value="" />
Google video appears but cannot be launched.

How did you people made it ?
Please share the information

Note: i use VBSEO, but normally this has nothing to do with it.

I can't get the index bar to show up. Everything else works fine, but the index bar doesn't seem to show up no matter where I place it.

And I can't get the videos index to show up either.

No Video option when doing a repl but New Threads work!

I just aquired a board that is running the SEO Video mod.

The board is running 3.6.4

The problem is the I don't see the option to post google or youtube videos when doing a "reply".
The option only shows up when posting new threads.

Sorry if this is dumb question - I have worked with SMF and phpbb but not VB.

Any help would be appreciated.

Quick Update.

I noticed that if I use the "Post Reply" button it works.

But if I use the quick reply - goto advanced - I dont see the option to insert video.

This one works - Post Reply Button

This one does not work - not option to insert the video -the google & youtube icons are missing.

FYI - I found another bug...

My video bar only displayed "3" out of the "4" videos.....

I changed......
<td class="panelsurround" align="center">
<object width="160" height="130" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" data="{video}">
<param name="movie" value="{video_1}" />


<td class="panelsurround" align="center">
<object width="160" height="130" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" data="{video_1}">
<param name="movie" value="{video_1}" />

Works now...

Does this work with vBSEO? And has anyone tested it in vB 3.65?

Looking at the .htaccess file you offered for download, it seems as though perhaps I could put some of the Rewrite Rules into the Custom Rewrite Rules section in the vBSEO control panel?

If someone here has installed this that uses vBSEO I'd love to hear from you (or from the plugin author )
I blog about running a business online at find me there

I installed it and I use vBSEO. I can't say that it works, because I see nothing on the videos.html page. The videos work in the forums, but that's about it.

To add this .htaccess to your existing one, just copy and paste it under the vBSEO stuff. Make sure the settings are the same as the vBSEO, or you'll get errors.

That's about all I can do for you. This mod needs to be marked as UNsupported!
