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!

Installed on 3.8.2 and all seems to be working well except for a few small things:

1. AJAX for posting comments doesn't work. Any ideas?

2. The tags don't get saved about 30% of the time. The other 70% tags get saved fine.

3. Veoh vides kept giving me an error of "This video cannot be embeded". I disabled the Veoh option for now but I would love to get it working since there's a few vids on Veoh I want to add that I can't find on other sites.

Overall, awesome mod! Thanks!

Hi Jaxel,

Hope you're doing better now (saw your post from last week about swine flu).

My original feature requests are below. Could you please let us know a general timeframe of when to expect the next release? I'd love to install your mod, but cannot due so yet since there is no moderation queue feature yet. Thanks.

Feature request:

- usergroup submissions moderation queue
- who's currently viewing this video
- who's active in video directory
- user video uploads (local)
- mp3/wav support (both local and 3rd party)
- user comments moderation

Thanks again!

Hi, I haven't heard about my message. Could someone please read below and let me know what you think?

Here are 2 questions:

I feel like we would get users to submit more videos if we had the Add Video button on the video directory home. I modified the template for that but it doesn't work because the Category ID is a requirement.
I think it would make more sense to let users choose to Add a Video from anywhere, then on the add video form they can pick which category it belongs to.

Did anybody also think of that? Done that?

I read through the entire thread and still can't figure out how to add something like "random videos" as a module on my CMPS. Would someone please shed some light?

Thanks so much for the help

I'm just checking on the status of the new video-hosters? There was a post way back in January regarding new ones.

Unless a hoster has a per-video RSS feed... I wont be making a file for it.

But are there any more files apart from the original 8, and if so where can we download them from - thanks. Also are there any plans to be able to upload videos directly - or the possibility of integrating with another app in order to do that. I think our members would also like to send their videos directly to us, you see. Thanks!

Moderation Que would be something very important. At least that way, when you allow people to upload Videos, you can be sure nothing offensive is posted before its shown to everyone.

I just installed this and for some reason I can't access it. When I go to video.php I am always getting a permission error. I adjusted the general categories permissions and administrator is definitely there. I cant find any other settings that change the permissions?

What am I doing wrong here?
