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!

===========================================================
Version 1.1.1
===========================================================
Added basic support for SEO slugs. To enable SEO slugs, uncomment out the line:

// define('SEO_ENABLED', true);
in upload/video.php

Enabling the SEO slug is NOT for people with vbSEO, you dont need it.

The required apache rewrite rules are in htaccess.txt.

BUG: Enabling the SEO slug will inherintly break the Who's Online recognition.

BUG: The &page= variable in the SEO slug is not properly optimized.
I have a quick question. I'm wondering if support for this was removed in a previous version maybe?

The htaccess.txt mentioned hasn't been in any recent releases, and without the rewrite rules I'm unable to enable this in the video.php file..

Anyone know the rewrite rules?

I did a search in the thread but couldn't see if it was possible to set usergroup permissions per video category or not?

or is it just permissions for all the videos?

Jaxel, I just installed the Mod. However, I found only 1 problem with it so far.

Forum is installed on: http://www.<hostname>.com/forums
Mod is installed on the forum home.
CMPS is installed on: http://www.<hostname>.com

When going to the home URL of CMPS, in this case, http://www.<hostname>.com, and clicking the Video Directory link in the Nav Bar, the resulting URL is http://www.<hostname>.com/video.php. This results in a blank page, since the mod is not installed there.

However, if I go to the forum, and then click on the link, the Video Directory link in the Nav Bar resolves to the correct URL: http://www.<hostname>.com/forums/video.php.

Why is this happening if the installation instructions were followed correctly? Is this a bug? Can I uninstall and re-install uploading the files to http://www.<hostname>.com instead of /forum?

In the end, I would like the mod to be installed just like yours on 8WayRun, and yours doesnt seem to be on /forums dir.

Thanks.

@kasht... I cant give you help on a conflict with another mod...

@rockdrig... there was a problem while trying to connect to the video sever, maybe you should try again later?

@MagicThemeParks... turn on avatar thumbnails.

Does anyone know anything about the Inline Moderation system in VB? I want to incorporate that with the comment system. As well, has anyone looked at my uStream file?
