From the makers of the letters O and Yea comes the hottest 'must have mod' of the season: AME 2.5 - The Return of The Hot Mama.

Thanks everyone for making AME 2.5 Mod of the Month

AME is the multi award winning modification that smartly scans new and edited posts for URLs from a customisable variety of web sites (i.e. YouTube or Amazon or about 200 others). If it finds a match, AME will 'transform' the URL into inline embedded media without your users ever having to even think about it.

It was important for me to create a system that did not need updating (and subsequent reinstalling) every time one of the sites it supported decided to change the way it displayed its media (which is all the fricken time). Therefore I built a system in which the 'definitions' for each site could be imported, exported, tweaked and shared on a whim. This way, you only have to import the definitions that you want. It also allows the vB community to get creative and share definitions that I wouldn't of thought of!

Which sites are supported?

Included in the default installation is YouTube and Amazon. At time of posting this, I believe that there are over 180 sites supported that have been created by the vBulletin community. These range from sites that stream videos to Amazon referral links to locally hosted music and video files.

Check out the 'add ons' section of this post below to see availible add-ons.

For a total list of features and an FAQ, see click here.
For a post on troubleshooting, click here.

Though not tested on any version of vBulletin lower than 3.7.4, in theory it should work on versions 3.5 and higher (just dont quote this bit!).

Big thanks goes out to all those in the community that have supported this mod. Especially Digital Jedi who gives great support on this mod and has created over 160 definitions for this system alone!


Installation/Upgrade
  • Upload the contents of the forums folder into your forums directory and import the product-ame.xml file into your product manager (if upgrading, choose 'yes' to overwrite previous installation).
  • After installation, make sure that the system is on (admincp->AME CP->Settings)
  • Then you may want to try to rebuild old URLs via the tools option.

I also deleted the previous youtube def and imported the latest from the 2.5 link.

Example above:
I assume this has been fixed, as they appear fine when I check your link. Or is still happening for some videos? If you're using my definitions, we'll need to move this to my AME thread.

How do I get this script to automatically add youtube videos to my forum in widescreen? It seems to just add them in standard size although the video on youtube is actually widescreen.

Can anybody help?
Settings are set globally or within the definition. It will not distinguish between aspect rations.

Check your error logs or check with your host to see if maybe you getting a time out during save.

Question MP3 Problems

I dont know whats going on here, but sometimes my embedded mp3 files play and other times it just sits there. I have extract data on, contain on and active on.

I use BBcode to embed my files since HTML is not allowed in forum. I've tried it both ways even enabling HTML and trying just URL's.
ex.

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

I removed the [ before the url= in this post so the code would display...

If I click on the name of the Song in the player when its NOT playing i get this error:

ERROR
The requested URL could not be retrieved

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

While trying to retrieve the URL: http://www.united4freedom.net/mp3/honor_your_flag.mp3

The following error was encountered:

•Access Denied.

Your cache administrator is webmaster.



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

Generated Sun, 18 Jul 2010 21:51:46 GMT by sv24.byethost24.org (squid/2.7.STABLE9)


Then a few minutes later sometimes it lets me access it...
I've spent the whole day messing with this, and ALL permissions for the MP3 folder and files on server are 777. I'm very perplexed and would appreciate any help anyone can give me. I'm a Linux novice ...

Thank you,
Tom Martin

I tried looking through all the posts in here and in DJ's thread, but I was unable to find an answer, so I decided to post my problem in both threads... I couldn't figure out if I have an AME problem, or a problem with the definitions.

I have had the AME 2.5 installed for a long time now (on VB 3.8.5) and in order for just the regular YouTube to convert, I must have "extract destination data" turned off in the main settings. Turned on, YouTube won't convert at all. I have tried to turn on the "extract desitination data" in the main settings, and turn it off on the YouTube definition itself, but it still won't work unless it's off in the main settings. Just today I decided to install DJ's definitions, and none of them will convert at all, with the Extract Destination Data turned on or off. I have tried at several different sites to be sure (ESPN.com, CBSNews.com, Hulu, Gamesopoly) and made sure that embedding was allowed on all links, still nothing will convert, just the URL gets posted.

I assume it's me... I'm not the most proficient at all this. I did re-install AME 2.5, and did an overwrite of all files and xml, still to no avail. Any other info you need to help me, I would be glad to provide! Thanks.

What's that actually mean?

There isn't a setting for it in the general settings, from what I can see.

How long does the install typically take? Mine's been running for 15+ minutes now (4.7 million posts on my board) and, actually, on Chrome, my browser timed out so I don't know the current progress...

Question YouTube titles

Something seems to have changed when trying to extract titles from YouTube videos in the past few days. Whenever AME generates a title for a YouTube video via "extract destination data" it includes HTML/character entities (Example YouTube Title: "YouTube- ‪'How to Train Your Dragon' Trailer HD‬‎") in the title text along with the video title. It is doing this for all YouTube video titles regardless of any characters in the YouTube video page title.

Did something change at YouTube? Anyone know a fix for this?

There's a MegaVideo definition in my AME thread, avaiable in the Add-On section of the first post. However, I'm getting reports that I may need to update it.

Hey, we should probably have this discussion on my thread. Please bear with me as I try to catch up on all the support requests.

Yes, under Settings in your AME CP there are fields to set the Height and Width of videos for each of the different regions videos appear in. They can also be set individually in each definition by editing the embed code.

Install itself shouldn't take all that long.

Presuming you have the most recent definition, you just need to allow Extraction. If you have that disabled it won't pull the title.

AME doesn't always convert the special characters included in some YouTube titles. There's a file you can edit, I don't quite remember at the moment which, where you can get it to accept certain characters, but it will still not convert a few because you can only set it to one type of encoding.

Thanks for getting back to me about this. This problem appears in all YouTube titles and it looks like YouTube made a change to their video title format -- a few other sites have mentioned this same issue, including:

http://www.vbseo.com/f77/automatic-l...hem-now-44713/

Wonder if there is a way to fix this? Anyone know what the character entities translate to that YouTube is putting in their titles?

‪ and ‬‎ are what is being added to the beginning and end of every YouTube video title.
