NEARLY 300 SUPPORTED SITES FOR VIDEOS, AUDIO, GAMES AND MORE!

https://www.vbulletin.org/forum/external/2008/11/36.png

This is the most current repository of definitions for DJ's AME :: The Ultimate Automatic Media Embedder. These media definitions will expand your AME to support embedding from hundreds of websites. More videos. More than videos. These definitions will let you embed content from sites that include games, widgets, music players and so much more.

This repository was seeded by contributions from the vBulletin community over several years, but are curated here for easy access. Special thanks to Hotwheels and Danyloski for starting the tradition.




NEWS
DJ's AME 2.5.7 is out! What are you waitin' fer?!




IMPORT
DEFINITIONS ARE NOT INSTALLED They're imported through your AME CP. Which means you have to have AME installed first. You DO NOT import definitions through your Product Manager. I mean, you can try. But I'll make fun of you.

The READ ME file explains in more detail. Please don't skip it. I named it in big letters and everything.




VERSION INFO
These definitions are for AME 2.5.

A BETA set of definitions for AME 3 can be found here.




LIVE DEMO
This is my development area with a lot of test thread. As such, it's not a comprehensive list of all working definitions. You can find that below...




MEDIA DEFINITIONS LIST
The full list of definitions is available in the second post of this thread. Requests for new definitions should be made here (no registration required), rather than in this thread. It makes it easier for me to keep track and to prioritize. Please do not use this area to contact me.
Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.





SUPPORT
I can't stress this enough. I NEED LINKS in order to troubleshoot problems. Links to the video. Links to the thread. I can't do anything without knowing what videos are causing the problem. If all you do is post that a particular site is not working and provide me with nothing to look at, well, how can I fix it? Following this simple guideline will save us both a lot of time and effort. (And check the FAQ on the first page. I worked really hard on that one. :erm: )

Please note that I do new definition requests in the order they were received and as timely as I can.

DJ's DEFINITIONS FAQ
Here's a few Q&As, FAQs and FYIs about some of definitions available and some tips and tricks with regard to the AME modification itself. When referring to editing definitions, it will be assumed you're in your Admin CP » AME CP » Display Definitions list.


**Internal Linking
This set of definitions is available here, but not in the main post. The reason why is it's buggy. It works, but with conditions that might put you off of it.

This set is designed to auto convert links from your vB 3.x website. It includes a definition for threads, single posts, forums/categories and user profiles. Links to these page will convert to a formatted link with the name of that page, and the noembed.png image to it's left.

The problem doesn't occur during posting, which worked for me %100 of the time on two separate installations. The problem occurs if you try to edit. If two of the same kind of links share a paragraph, then the rest of the paragraph gets stripped out when you hit the edit button. I don't know why, and I've tested for a couple of years now off and on with different regexs to try and root out the problem. Since I can't seem to work it out, I decided to let anyone who wants to tinker with them try them out. Note that the issue only occurs when two of the same kind of link share a paragraph.




AllPosters.com (Thumbnails) et.al.: This set will convert almost all product links form AllPosters.com into thumbnails like the Amazon and CafePress definitions. There's very few products that will not convert, and these appear to be only frames, or anything that's been framed.

Also note that you can use your own affiliate ID with AllPosters if you have one just by replacing the three instances of mine in the Replacement HTML. But if you want to leave them in there, you won't get ANY complaints from me.

Examples: ?aid=1244576320 | ?aid=F0048675431


Amazon.com (Thumbnails) and (Links): The original Thumbnail version of the Amazon Links was created by nevetS in one of the old XML threads and it was the first definitions created to demonstrate turning product links into thumbnails rather then links.

Note that I have also included my affiliate IDs in these definitions, mainly because these are constructed on my live site. To work in your own affiliate ID in either the Links or Thumbnails definitions, look for the instances of the ?tag= in theReplacement HTMLand replace the following IDs with your own. Or, again, you can leave them in. Won't hurt my feelings.

Examples: ?tag=stopmomstop-20 | ?tag=citofgamonlco-20


As noted above, you don't want Thumbnails and Links turned on at the same time, which is why I have them both in the Master XML, but one of them set to off.


eSnips.com (Videos) (Music): Unfortunately, you will only be able to use one or the other of these definitions, which is why eSnips (Music) is turned off by default. The URLs were not distinctive enough to make a RegEx that could tell video pages from music pages. Until this changes, this is the one caveat you'll have to contend with.


Google.com (Search Results) (Let Me Google That For You): These definitions convert your Google search results links into formatted links in a couple of ways. Note that they cannot be both turned on at the same time, which is why (Search Results) is the only one active when you import them.

(Search Results) converts your search results links in simple link with the search terms and the google icon.


(Let Me Google That For You) on the other hand, will convert links into a funny redirect to LetMeGoogleThatForYou.com. This definition is a variation on the one originally created by Vitaly.


For Google (Search Results) to work, you'll need to add these images to your images/misc directory. This first is the old Google favicon and the second is the new one. The definition uses the new icon by default, but you can change the definition to the old one just by changing the Replacement HTML image source from _new to _old.


MP3 Local Hosted Audio: I hope you like the new player I added. Unfortunately, I can't take all the credit. The player was created under the Creative Commons Licence by neolao production. The great thing about this player is that it's fully customizable, and can even support it's own skin if you happen to have one. Go to http://flash-mp3-player.net/players/maxi/generator/ and set the colors and settings to your liking. Copy and paste over the code into your MP3 definition under Replacement HTML. Just remember that you MUST replace the MP3 URL (http%3A//flash-mp3-player.net/medias/another_world.mp3) that they provide with $p1. Otherwise, your MP3s won't work.

Alternatively, you can download the flash player and host it on your own site, but you'll need to change the source of the video player in your Replacement HTML to the location on your server.



NewsClipper.org: This is one of those definitions that I consider "imperfect" in that it's functional in every way it needs to be, but not as fully as you would like it to be. Newsclipper.org is a website that manages to collect news videos from all the major video news sites: MSNBC, CNN, CBS NEWS, FOX NEWS, Associated Press, Rutgers, BBC, Sky News, ESPN and Comedy Central. But because all their videos are pulled from different sites, every video has different aspect ratios. There's currently no way to dynamically set the height and width of a video using AME (or in this case, an iFrame). So you'll have to set those attributes to your liking in your AME CP. I currently have them set to the widest and highest of the videos I found. This will leave a white square around videos that have smaller aspect ratios. (Not a big deal if your postbit color is already white.) You can change the color of this area by adding the color code in the style attribute: style="background-color:#000000;". But this will only works in FireFox. IE users will still see a white empty area surrounding the video.


UOL.com.br: Yes, that many files was needed to make UOL work. Each category is like it's own website with it's own embed source code. The site is vast, and is essentially several websites grouped under one domain. As noted, the one peculiarity is that URLs with "assistr" in them wont embed. This is because, for whatever reason, these pages have no usable code in the HTML or URL to backreference. Not sure why. It could be this page is actually a front page that changes content often, so most of the content is handled via javascript. Either way, these URLs are infrequent, and shouldn't be encountered too often.


Sort Order: One thing I've been annoyed with in AME is trying to get some kind of display order that makes sense. I found out while working on these, that entries with the same Display Number sort by alphabetically order. So what I ended up doing was setting all my working files to 1, and all my non working or in-progress files to 0. This made to where I could keep them in alphabetical order and create pseudo-categories.


Special Characters: For some reason, AME doesn't always convert Special Characters correctly. Instead of an ampersand (&) you'll get the HTML equivalent (&), etc. One of the things you can do is edit the post after posting, and simply change the name of the link, without altering what it links to. (In the Full Editor, all you would do is edit the exiting name. In the Basic Editors, you would simply change the name between the [url][/url] tags.)


Wikipedia (Links): In order for Wikipedia to work you need to save this image to your images/misc directory. https://www.vbulletin.org/forum/external/2008/11/66.jpg
Keep in mind that Wikipedia is a beta, meaning that it really only works for English entries. International Wikipedias didn't have the consistency in the HTML code needed to make this work for all of them.


YouTube.com: Periodically YouTube goes down for maintenance. This means that some features, like embedding, is disabled during this time period. If you see "Video Not Available" and YouTube was working yesterday, hang on for a little while. Also, check to see if a video says "Embedding Disabled by Request "in the embed code box. If so, the video will be blocked from embedding and will give the Not Available message as well.

A new feature worked into YouTube is called Deep Linking. Sounds like something you'd get from the back end of the video store, right? Not in this case. Deep linking is YouTube's relatively new ability to jump to a fixed time frame inside a video. In order to do this, append the URL of your YouTube video with ?t=XXs where XX is the number of seconds into the video you want to jump. (NOTE: I know some of you already know of this, but what's different here is that you cannot use minutes and seconds in the URL. You have to use seconds only, so you'll have to do just a little head math and convert minutes into seconds.)

For example, click http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FuQRmtBq-ls#t=120s and playback will begin exactly 120 seconds or 2 minutes into the video.


zSHARE.net, et al: For badges to work, you'll need to add all the following images to the images/misc directory for your forum and/or any different styles you use. So, for example, if you have a forum that uses the default style and a custom skin named Centura, you would need to add it to the default image/misc folder (yoursite.com/images/misc) AND into the folder for the Centura style (yoursite.com/centura/misc).

If you mean for locally hosted videos, then yes. But you need the appropriate definitions.

Go to my profile page and click on the link for my other XML thread called (Third Times the Charm) and you can get the definitions for Local Hosted Videos. I will be adding them to this thread to, once I get the size variables added, but you can still use the other ones on any version of AME. Be sure to follow the instructions for Local Hosted Videos as described in the thread.

I think I'm either missing something or being really REALLY stupid.

I can't get it to import all the defs. After importing the master file and making no changes to what's enabled etc I still only end up with 25 defs showing as active, including the original five included with The Geek's hack. :(

What am I doing wrong? :confused:

Digital Jedi 11 Nov 2008 17:07

I'm not sure why it would do that, but it shouldn't be letting you import anything if you have the default definitions still installed. Try deleting all your definitions and doing a full import afterwards.

Just given it a whirl and it's just imported 20 now. I've even tried uninstalling The Geek's hack and re-installing it. But get the same result. :(

Anything else I can try? :erm:

Not sure if that's meant to be a question or a statement. I only use Firefox, but I don't suppose IE would hurt to try. Can't see what difference it would make though.

Adem GENĒ 12 Nov 2008 01:03

Suggestion

1. Upgrade ame 2.5 RC 1
2. Display Definitions-> All Delete
3. Import Definitions
4. Browse
5. Select DJ's Master XML 2.xml
6. Import
7. Import
Completed

58D 12 Nov 2008 04:51

Hey DJ, are these the same definitions from the "Third Times a Charm" or should I switch over to these. I'm using AME 2.5.

Eneswar 12 Nov 2008 05:06

Any idea why all the videos i post comes out very small?
Wasnt like this before i imported this definitions.

Like:

It shouldn't, but it's worth a try to cover your bases.

Just a thought, but check with your host to see there's any reason they would put a limitation on file imports. I don't know of anything of hand that would do that, and the XML isn't particularly a large file, but you never know.

The only difference is that these are using the size variables for 2.5. You can now use the AME global size settings for 98% of them, except of course the ones' that don't need them or can't be resized for other reasons. (The small list in post 2.)

As I mentioned, these use AME 2.5's global height and width variables. They're smaller because your using the default size setting in the AME CP for posts. You can now set the height and width of all your videos globally per region (posts, blog posts, profile comments, signatures)

Eneswar 12 Nov 2008 05:46

So I have to install 2.5 one? im using 2.0.2

Digital Jedi 12 Nov 2008 05:49

My fault, I titled this thread so early in the morning, I mistakenly said these where for 2.0. These are for 2.5. If your not using AME 2.5, you don't need these definitions and the older one will work fine. I'll be keeping both version updated simultaneously.

Eneswar 12 Nov 2008 05:58

Simple misstake.
Then ill wait for 2.5 to go gold and get this definitions :)
Thanks anyway

Eneswar 12 Nov 2008 06:05

Got a question tho :P
Is there a possibility to add Deezer definition to 2.0.2, if yes, how?

Thank you

Digital Jedi 12 Nov 2008 06:06

Deezer is included in the Master XML and in the Main ZIP on my other thread.

Due to unusual instance of a % symbol in some Daily Motion links, a slight tweak to the definition is required. Please delete your old Daily Motion definition and import this new one. The Master XML 2 was also updated.

i have the same problem, i think that's wrong coding (not sure if that's ame or DJ).

this is an example for AOL
source of definition

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)

source of generated page

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)

so problem solves if i use

I don't think you've updated your BETA version of AME. $ameinfo["size"] is only supposed to parse the digits, not the full size element, since not every site is going to use the same format.

Thanks DJ. Updated to RC1

Just a thought, but check with your host to see there's any reason they would put a limitation on file imports. I don't know of anything of hand that would do that, and the XML isn't particularly a large file, but you never know.

Gave it a go, but no difference.

I've also just tried splitting the .xml down so that it was in batches of 20 defs, with <AME></AME> at start and finshed as required.

But this time it only imported 17 of the first 20. :confused:

I'll contact my host just incase there is something set their end to cause this issue. But I'm stumped now lol.

Thanks though.

You would just delete the old versions and import this one.

There's no reason it shouldn't unless they made changes to how that is controlled. I'll give it a look and get back to you.

I just tested two MySpace videos and both of them 'hang' on the little logo in the middle of the video.

Anyone know if I have to do something special to make those play?

That is the purpose of the upgrade: size control per reigon. You need to set the desired size for posts in the AME CP. It's currently set to default.

Well, there's the problem. MySpace is no longer using an iFrame to display it's video content, it's using actual embed code now. So that will need to be updated by me.

I got the ame 2.5 RC 1 to work fine on my vb Version 3.8.0 Beta 1 board. Just a few minor issues like the caching folder error and a bug with vbspell (var mispstr = ""; var misps = Array();; ).

However when I tried to import this addon I get this error:

Can not save Import because of the following error(s):
Duplicate keys found


Anyone know a way around this?

Nice mod by the way.

Keys where added to 2.5 to prevent you from importing duplicate definitions for the same site. This Add-On has all the sites that already come default with AME, so you'd need to delete your default definitions first in order to get a successful import and no matching keys.

Great. That worked!
I noticed that some videos from youtube that had alredy been on my site via the tag mod took about a minute to show after I installed this mod.

Also it was the same case with the video directory mod. When I clicked the thumbnai to view a video it would take forever for the video to show. So I went into the AME control panel and clicked Save under settings without changing anythign and the videos began to show quickly again for a short while then the same problem started again.

I'm not sure what causes this but it can be the cache feature.

Also the vbspell error seems to be cause by AME header code. What do you think?

PAKIDIL 21 Nov 2008 13:52

will this work for the .swf and .flv formats ?

I had vBSpell installed at one time along with AME and didn't have any conflict. But I removed it awhile back when there was an IE error. I haven't installed it since it was last updated, but I'm not sure what would cause that. Is your vBSpell the most current?

YouTube embeds are susceptible to slow load times, and is often, though not always, a problem on YouTube's end.

We've got one for .swf, but we don't currently have one for .flv. I'll be looking into .flv during my next run through of requests. If you want the .swf you need to download the Local Hosted Videos ZIP file in my other thread in the 3.6 section. I haven't yet made a Local Hosted set for the new resizable AME, but those will work just fine.

Yes I believe my vbspell is current. I will check again.
Another issue I noticed is that when I was test posting some urls from youtube the video would only show if I was posting it as a reply to an existing thread. If I tried posting a new thread the url would only show as a link.

That may be just be a quirk when posting. You said tried disabling vBSpell to see if that was causing your other error, right? See if the same thing happens when posting a new thread and vBSpell is off.

Yes, MySpace has recently went from an iframe to actual embed code. I will address this one for sure in the next update.

I am afraid there is not much you can do about myvideo.de. I was trying to embed copyrighted music videos (eg http://www.myvideo.de/watch/5495128/...mberlake_Rehab). I think that is their way to control copyrights. I wonder if it acts the same if you use their api.

By the way, thank you very much for sharing all these definitions! They are a great help for novices like me.

thnx DJ for this definition master file.
i had your ame xml master file previously.
i imported this as well. i hope that would not compromise the settings.

i was surfing and by chance dropped in this thread.
although i had clicked install on geek's ame installation thread as well as ur previous definition too.
however, didnt get notified for this thread.
may i suggest that all those who click install, get the notification of new definitions as they come.:)

thankx

I remember when I first tested the MyVideo definition that I got a lot of commercials only, but my RegEx was off. I'll have to test it again to be sure, but I wouldn't be surprised.

You both needed to delete your existing definitions before importing a new Master XML. Your getting duplicate videos becasue you imported two copies of the same definition.

That would be up to The Geek, as I don't maintain that modification, only the Add-On.

No need to import them all. As I explain in the first post, the Master XML is for those just starting out who want all the sites at once, and the Main ZIP is for those who want to pick and choose. The Local Hosted is for just that, videos hosted locally on your server/site.

Nadeemjp 25 Nov 2008 07:05

oh ok so as long as i have this DJ's AME 2.5, i dont need to worry about the rest?:)
super.

and i understand that it is upto geek to notify and that is ok, but i had your other i mean previous addon and didnt know about this latest development:D. so i was actually suggesting that instead of making new thread, why not to update it in the same thread? in that way, whosoever has clicked install would get the notification. but it is just a humble suggestion:)

and one question: when i imported the master xml file, it as usual, asked to check and confirm the different definitions. i noticed that some of them were not checked yes in wrapping instance and some were not checked yes in activity context. i didnt touch it since i didnt know what i am doing, so i imported it as it is. should i be now manually changing them? or can u tell why some were not selected during import? i just want to know if it is a system glitch or something else.

Oh you mean in my other thread? For one, I don't want to remove any screenshots to make room for the additional three files I'll be adding here. For another, if some people are still using an older version of AME, then these definitions won't work for them. And since AME updated to 3.7, it made sense to have a thread in the 3.7 forum. Plus, I think it's confusing enough as it is.

However, I did send an update in that thread about the day I started this thread.

As a general rule, I don't set the music players to wrap. It's just something I do, and it also demonstrates to users what the wrap feature is. Also, there are some definitions that you can only use one or the other, not both. So have one turned off so you don't get conflicts until you decide to choose which. These definitions are noted in the list in the first post.

jerx 27 Nov 2008 13:07

Admin Panel - > AME CP -> Display definitions -> Mark all definitions for deletion and save.

Edit: I have just noticed that you have also asked the same question in DJ' s 3.6 version thread. This is not a good manner. And it is easy to see that DJ adresses each support request very quickly. There is no need to multipost. Post your question once and wait at least one whole day before you post somewhere else or bump the thread.

MotMann 27 Nov 2008 15:17

okey.. thanks :)

I dont need Multipoast. But, if you have over 6 Windows from that App open, then comes little mistakes ;)

This hint should be added to the main plugin page. :)

EDIT: Game Trailers doesn't work. I'll look why. Seemed to be AME cache issue. I reactivated cache and it works. Now only the size doesn't work, but that belongs to AME itself. Thanks for this plugin!

EDIT #2: The best size for gametrailers <embed> tag is 480x409 (widthxheight). With default settings by your definition it gets resized which looks crap (the width is okay but not the height). Regarding resizing media see also this post at AME main product.

The Google definition is for Google Videos only, so it won't convert videos Google has dragged in or harvested from another video site, like say YouTube or MetaCafe. You would have to use the actually YouTube or MetaCafe link for that.

It is, actually, part of the 2.5 new features list


Quote:

2.5 is a pretty major upgrade from the 2.0 series and adds the following functionality to 2.0:
  • New in Beta 3 - Validation ability. This will help prevent media being embedded that can not be embedded (i.e. youtube videos that the author has stipulated can not be shown off of youtube). This option requires the extraction option to be turned on and a valid validation regexp. I have included one in the default youtube version. When a video on you tube gets embedded, but the author doesnt allow embedding, a link (with icon) is shown instead.

I dont think its suppose to do this, but when you click on that Amazon Thumbnail, it takes you to a page saying:

I figured it would make the image larger or just redirect me to the page they got it from.

For those having the linking problem with Amazon (Thumbnails), I have a temporary fix for you until the variable problem in AME can be pinpointed. It will not convert titles properly and will just read Amazon (Thumbnails) or whatever you've named it in the AME CP, but it will properly convert your URLs.

NOTE: If you need to add your own affiliate ID tag you must go in and change each instance of ?tag=citofgamonlco-20 to your own affiliate ID. There are three. If not, you won't hurt my feelings leaving it in. ;)

Oh, remember to delete your old one.

http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/tg...fullmailbox-20

which takes me to the main page of amazon, having removed the asin number.

i'm keeping this definition active for now, but any ideas on that will be appreciated.

(and yes, i realize it says 'temp fix', im just trying to troubleshoot)

thanks for the rapid reply and fix DJ :D

See if using this as your Replacement HTML helps at all. It shouldn't be stripping out the ASIN number.

You know, looking at the RegEx a little more closely know, I see this is one I didn't originally make. It's a little different then the way I would normally go. Let me see if I can come up with something a little different and maybe this will address the parsing problem we've been having.

Link me to a couple of examples so I can see what the problem is.

There will be soon.

Hi guys, just a little status update for you. Looking through my PMs, it looks like I've let a lot of requests fall by the wayside. This is because support for this thread, my other threads and my other web work is continually getting more demanding.

Over the course of this week, I'm going to be going through my PMs thoroughly to make sure I address any questions I may have overlooked. As a result of this, I'm going to ask that any future requests, questions or comments be made through my two respective threads, unless we're dealing with some private information. As it stands, I've just let things get out of hand, and I find I'm forgetting PMs much more easily then I used to. The linear nature of a thread, though, is much harder to ignore or forget, and way easier to search.

This will make it easier for me to keep track of things, and I'll be able to put things on a rough, but clearer schedule then I had before. In short, this will make support better. I appreciate your patience and will get back to you soon.

You might want to add words like "no support via pm or email" to your signature and the first post of your threads. I have seen other mod authors doing this. I think it will help reducing your pm amount.

Jedi, is 2.5 RC1 stable enougth for production site? I plan to recheck my definitions & add new ones for 2.5. But still don't know, does it worth to upgrade right now.

I would, I just like to use my sig for other things and change it often.

I've not gotten to do a real good test of 2.5, but I've seen it on a few live sites. There appears to be a few small bugs with some definitions. But I haven't yet determined if that the definitions interaction with 2.5 or 2.5 itself. It's up to you really, if you want the resizing option and some of the new features.

boandmichele 08 Dec 2008 18:25

im running 2.5 on our live site with no problems aside from the amazon link problem. its fantastic aside from that

Great work! Just one question though. I'm using VB 3.8 RC1, and the IGN definition is causing an error. Any suggestions for a fix?

Digital Jedi: wouldn't be easier and less time consuming for you to stick to only one version (usually latest) ? I mean, it must be a killer job to go back to 2.x then 2.5 and so on. I think we could manage to love one version only, one big definition file, easier to track bugs... Just my 50 cents :)

I thought this was fixed in RC1, but what you can try to do is go into the definition for IGN and see if there are any single quotes. Escape each single quote by adding a backslash in front of each one, like so: \'

I've not had a chance to check to be sure, but that's likely the problem.

Easier for me, maybe. But it would leave a lot of users out in the cold. While the old definitions will work on RC1, these definitions will not display properly on anything but RC1. And the whole point of doing definitions for RC1 is so you can use RC1's new area controls. But if I drop the old defs for the BETA version's defs, I'll be leaving a lot of folks out in the cold who aren't ready to use the new version yet, or who've been receiving errors with them.

The hardest part is over now that I've gone through the main list. The only thing I need to do now is when I make a set of definitions, to import the new set to my demo board and export them again with the $ameinfo variables instead of the usual height and width parameters. An extra step, but not an egregious one.
