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!

Can some one help me with this before I uninstall and forget about it! I really would like to get this to work!

I get the following error when I try to upload a video. If anyone has any info, please respond, the author seems to not care.

----------------------------------------------------------------------

I got it finally I did a complete un-install and slowly went through the steps again and so far everything looks good! I still don't know what I was doing wrong but it's up and running.

There seems to be a conflict with AME that I've noticed as well. And, anytime that I try to add new bbcode, it gives me an error message. Once I disable the video directory mod, the bbcode is added with no issues.

Although, the video directory is a FANTASTIC mod, there seems to be that slight bug or conflict. Jaxel, I can find the error message for you if you'd like to research it.

[1] Hi ! Can you help me with this ? Everytime i am adding a video and automatically create a thread for the new video, i am getting this "THIS VIDEO DOES NOT EXIST" message. Is it because of DJ AME or something else ? Thank you in advance for your help !

[2] Later edit: I think i found out why there is a "THIS VIDEO DOES NOT EXIST" message on the newly created thread. It's because the video contains [ ] characters inside the title and therefore the bbcode can't handle it correctly". How can this be fixed ?

[3] Even later edit: Can somebody help me with a www.gametrailers.com .xml ? Thx again

[4] And the last edit: How can i autostart Youtube HD movies in HD mode ? They always start in SD... in a small window.

[5] Unfortunatelly, i've noticed another bug. When i try to add a comment, i get an "Invalid video specified". Need some help with this too... Sorry for taking so much of your time.

When you type/paste the URL into the space, simply change the HTTP to HDEF and it should bring over the larger HD version of the video.

I noticed this in some posts before.

Yes, i noticed that... but now i have a few hundred videos already inserted... and no way to edit them back. Btw, is it possible in the future to add a way to modify the links ? So we can modify http with hdef or even repair if the link to the video is down...

This Idea Is Very Important for a Future Update of the Mod, Jaxel.

And Also the List of Comments in a Page to be able to Read the Latest Comments and Moderate them if Necessary; in the Current Version is Impossible to do that, so is not Possible to Control the Comments that Users Make. If you can Include this in Your Next Update I'd Appreciate it Very Much, Jaxel.

My Best Regards.
