I installed the BB code, thank you BTW, seems to be perfect, I get the window, and evetrything seems cool

then ill post a link
http://www.aircraftmechanic.org/bec.divx

and it comes up with a 404 not found error, and then a permissions error. Yet if I place the address in the browser address bar, it asks to play or download the file, and downloads, so I know the files there. Any ideas??

Im going to use divx for instructional videos on my website.

This really looks awesome, and divx is the bet thing to hit streaming video since I have been involved with computers. thank you for the mod, and the help

Hi Steve,

Not sure why that happens i'm going to look into it for you today :D

Thanks, Marked as installed ;)

However I get the same 404 error.

I have set the file and folder permissions to 777 just incase but had no joy so far, look forward to that update :D

****UPDATE****

The url tags {URL} doesnt seem to be working steve, if that makes any sense.

I had initially used the code to embed like on an html page, such as http://www.aircraftmechanic.org/nova.htm its embedded and plays, might be some permission restriction in vbulletin, im dying to get it going

Still waiting to here back from Divx they have sent me the link to the webmaster kit which i can email any coder which wants to take a look, its too big to upload here. file, still its been a struggle to get the embedded code right for Vbulletin.

Perhaps a more experianced coder could look at the scripts, Divx would be a great asset to have on your boards and were 99.9% there, Just wondering if it could be a codec problem?

Well I did.... codec smodec lol... basically if you google and research you'll see this has been a consistent problem since they the last version release of the web player. How it worked on your board is ??? I see the demo screenshots in your admin panel which are just like mine BUT I would like to see an actual working version w/ URL link in it to because this makes no sense that it works on yours and not on ours...

UNLESS it's the output format of the divx itself?? Hmmm..... Divx Ultra NTSC (NA etc) or Divx Ultra PAL (Europe etc)....

Ok guys I found the problem :D

The {URL} code is incorrect, simply change with {param}

here is the working code:

<object classid="clsid:67DABFBF-D0AB-41fa-9C46-CC0F21721616" width="500" height="410" codebase="http://go.divx.com/plugin/DivXBrowserPlugin.cab">
<param name="mode" value="full" />
<param name="autoPlay" value="false" />
<param name="src" value="{param}" />
<embed type="video/divx" src="{param}" mode="full" width="500" height="410" autoPlay="false" pluginspage="http://go.divx.com/plugin/download/">

Yes it is, I converted a Fraps video as it would not even load in Windows media player etc via BB code as it was too big but now..

I present Halo Video for BF2142....

http://www.tournamentgamingworld.com/online/showpost.php?p=6675&postcount=17

Edit: Just a side note..I had the video open in my forum, then clicked the link i just posted and it gave an error.... so basicaly you can't view two windows of it YOURSELF which is fine, I had several members view at same time and good to go just not me in FF but checking IE...ok, same in IE and if one open in FF and one in IE it gives a error:

"The downloaded video file is not a DivX file."

Me personally they should not have two windows of it open so the code is good as-is :D

Thanks again.

Make sure you have only one window open you can't have more than one of the divx screen open at any time, Then copy this sample onto your board

http://download.divx.com/divxlabs/Apples_and_Oranges_Trailer_720-12Mbps.divx

Should work, this is basically what "TheLastSuperman" has explained above.

Bingo! So I was in admincp AND had the thread where I posted the same video (I used the same example in admincp that I wanted to show first lol) so it would error nad I was going ???? Basically F5/Refresh etc w/ one window open will do the trick.

Also when you download DivX (as of a few days ago) it has a handy converter that makes your old HUGE videos/movies into uber small and playable ones :D

It works trust me lol, I was like :confused: :erm: @ first too until DangerousDale posted :D :D

THANK YOU
code works fine, on all but ONE of my divx files, its weird, I can download the file, and play it, I cant link to it, but it wont play embedded, but its only one, so I can live without it, I also put up a trailer, from the saw film, it looks fantastic, thank you for making Vbulletin a little bit better. This is going to be a huge plus for my board.

Thank you x 100 man, you guys rock

Someones a Happy Chappy :D

Thank you Sir for requesting it.

Even i couldn't believe the quality, this has to be the best format for videos by far, and setting the standard.

Now i can put full lenght films on my forum, not sure what sort as its a business forum, but i might open up an area for VIP members and a regular "Night at the Movies" Forum :rolleyes:

Post your DivX demos here Guys, Don't be Shy ;)

Take care

Macc,

Delete the current divx bbcode that you have and start again, when i first released this their was an error in the code and everyone had the same problem as you. This has been fixed now, so you need to re install from fresh, just delete what you have and install again.

Try using this demo divx video as a sample

http://download.divx.com/divxlabs/Apples_and_Oranges_Trailer_720-12Mbps.divx

Let me know how you got on

Hi Macc,

Thanks for letting me take a look at your admin cp :up: The code is ok, I've copied it bit by bit from my sites own, which i know works quite well as you can see from the demo link.

I feel that it may be a conflict with another mod or bbcode, I've noticed you have quite a few, when you get a spare moment try and disable them one by one and then try the divx

I'm puzzled by this one :confused::confused:
