DJ, I know I have asked this before but I don't think it was answered or I missed it.

How can we properly embed Gametrailers vids in HD?

DJ, embedding google maps now works. I've installed git repo to maintain personal subset for my production site

http://github.com/rcdesign/vb-ame_rcd_rules/tree

You can find there XMLs for google maps and some russian foto-video hostings. Feel free to use in your pack and modify as you wish.

For Gametrailers each resolution has a different code #, so for instance:

SD: http://www.gametrailers.com/video/sd...ultimate/53450

HD: http://www.gametrailers.com/video/sd...ultimate/53449

this (random) video that I pulled from metacafe is not working though. Any reason why?

Meta Cafe is an old one that I've only tweaked over the months, but never fully redid. I think it might be time to start from scratch with Meta Cafe.

At the time, I believe, they didn't have any way of doing so other than a flash popup. I've been waiting for them to do a unique URL, like you posted. I'll look into seeing if I can do an new def.

Thanks, I'll give it a look-see.

What is going on?

Thanks for the help and great mod!

Double check your Extract destination data settings. If I'm not mistaken it has to be turned on now for YouTube's embed check to function correctly.

The definition should have converted the last one to HD and you would have had to gone into the definition itself and adjusted the size to what you wanted manually for HQ/HD. But it looks to me YouTube changed the way this works AGAIN, so that's why you were having problems. For instance, when I made these, the videos were in EITHER HQ or HD, but not both. That seems to have changed again. I'll try and work on this again and see if I can work something out if The Geek doesn't come up with a better solution for the next version of AME before then.

I mean, my boards users are somehow a bit newbies (everyone once was it! :p ) and most of the times, they just don't click on the Image Button (https://www.vbulletin.org/forum/external/2011/07/5.gif) in order to embed the JPGs on the posts...


They simply post the URL to the image, and what we get all the time, is something like this:
http://www.vbulletin.org/forum/image...ple/vblogo.gif

When we should be getting this:
https://www.vbulletin.org/forum/external/2011/01/6.gif


So, my question is: How could I add a way to automatically embed the JPGs on posts by simply posting the images URLs? :confused:

It's possible, but I'm not sure how practical it would be. I'm always a little suspect of making definitions too broad so they match any URL. I can look into it.

Thanks for your help.

What method are you using? Are you importing the Master XML?

Just removing that last part doesn't seem to work either. Am I doing something wrong?

Flickr has a handful of URLs that don't match the current RegExs and I'm working on that, but it's a tough one trying to keep it from conflicting with the very similar video URLs.

With that said, you need BOTH the Flickr (Photostreams) and (Sets) to capture the majority of their Slideshows. Do you have both imported?

Unless memory is failing me (and that entirely possible at this time of night) there's a problem with that depending on which browser you're using.

Is there a way to change the color of the font above the videos without changing the color in the actual forum style? If not is there a way to change which font color (First Alternating Color), it pulls from in the forum style?

See the image below:

https://www.vbulletin.org/forum/external/2009/08/42.jpg

AME uses templates, so just change code the template to something other than the tcat class it generally uses.

It looks to me like you don't have Extract destination data turned on, either in the definitions or globally or both.

Remember to re-save the posts if that turns out to be the case.

Last time I checked, no. But I'll keep checking back to see if they ever decide to use a consistent media player. They tend to want to switch between Hulu and a local player, and that just creates problems for AME.

Just as soon as I can get new ones out.

Thanks for the responses DJ. I've contacted Gametrailers.com to see if something can be done.

I think I sent them an email, too, sometime last year. Looks like their still not using unique URLs for the High def videos. At the very least, though, I might be able to get an embed with the HD video, it would just have to be enlarged by the user if he/she wanted to see it larger.

Yes, I have them all installed... Video, Photostreams and Sets. Installed the master xml a month from now, not sure if it has been updated since then.

I installed all as written in instruction, but nothing happens. AME CP is working and definitions are loaded, but forum shows only url links, no youtube no flash and no mp3. What should I check first?
Sorry if someone already asked... can't find with search.

with vbulletin 3.8.3 and AME 2.5.5

the

has a severe problem, its not linking to the destination thread instead always to itself.

example if you hav a link with www.xxxx.de/..../t=123
t=12 does not show up in a mouse ovr but instead t=456 (the thread were you place the link to) and if you click you end where you started.

alle the **internal linking do have this problem.

the edited thread shows the original link unmodified.

I'll have to double check these. The Geek posted an alternative to my Internal Linking definitions a few pages back that you can look into.

Not in the last month. Now that I think about it, I remember checking Flickr right before my absence. I think there are a number of conflicting URLs now that I can't include, without there being a video conflict.

Depends on a few things. Old URLs need to be converted carefully using the AME Tools. But if new URLs are the problem check all your settings, making sure you didn't accidentally turn AME off, or did something wiggy with the permissions. Also, for local hosted you need to make sure you made the appropriate edits to the definitions, and for YouTube, make sure the videos being used are actually embeddable. Sometime they're not.
