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!

I'm getting this error - anybody know why?

Fatal error: Call to undefined method vB_VideoSharingService_YouTube::fetch_showurl() in /var/www/domains/dawnswebdesigns.com/docs/forum/video.php on line 492

I'm sorry...should've read back about 3/4 pages. I did try to reimport the hosters but I couldn't find the files so I exported what I had & tried to reimport them which didn't work out. But then I found this:

SOLUTION: After upgrading, go to Video Directory - Manager Hoster - Click "Import Video-Hoster" - browse to install folder (VidDirRx-1.2.0\upload\includes\xml) and install the XML files for each hoster and set the settings.

OK now videos are simply loading...they don't show up.

I have upgraded & I have reimported the hosters. Now all I get are videos trying to load but they don't actually load.

I replied & noticed my helper logged out so I reinstalled the old one that works 'til they can figure this out. Mine's not meant to be a test site so I need things to work.

Any idea as to why some videos won't play even though they are 'embeddable'?

For example....this video...

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3iHFizLOh_E

...is one that doesn't have that "embedding is disabled" message, but yet when I add it it shows "video is not available" message in the display area.

Are there some videos that are blocked in some way that I'm not aware of?

EDITED: This one....

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=x3XGjnQgsJA

....gives me a message stating "The response of the video-server can't be read." when trying to 'load information' on it. I had never seen that one before.

SgtSling, I had the same problem. You have to move the avatars from their storage in the database to the file system.

You do that by going here.... AdminCP -> Avatars -> User Picture Storage Type -> Go

If that alone didn't do it, then you can try and rebuild the custom avatars through AdminCP -> Maintenance -> Update Counters -> (Look for rebuild custom/avatars option)

Hope that helps

Jaxel, you might want to put that in the directions or on the 2nd post (which I haven't checked, so it may be there already ) to help with it.

Glorify,

I noticed that Surviver had people PM him (since he was originator of the mod) and he will give you instructions on the brand-free version.
