This is a new modification, spawning from the old VB 3.x Video Directory modifications.
For all intents and purposes, both my old Video Directory Remixed mod, and Survivor's original Video Directory mod have been discontinued. Neither of us are maintaining these older versions, they will not receive any future updates and we will not be providing any support. This version has a new name because it has been completely rewritten from scratch and is not being built on Survivor's old code. Because of this, if you are upgrading to this new version, from the old version, be sure to read this entire post in order to understand the upgrade process.

What is this mod?
Simply put, this mod is a directory for media. It supports URL inputs, in order to extract meta data and directorize media into a simple and easy to understand library. Users can add their favorite media from a select few online distribution centers (such as Youtube or Vimeo) and categorize and tag them as they see fit. This mod offers rudimentary support for the hosting of local media. An administrator can upload a media to the /customVID/ (default) directory; then add the media to the library using the URL code of "local:filename". Media hosted locally will be displayed using JWPlayer, but will not provide meta data, so that kind of information will need to be entered manually.

Demo:
http://www.8wayrun.com/media.php

Features:
  • Integrated directly into the vBulletin user database and product manager.
  • Fully phrased and built on tempaltes for easy re-skinning and styling.
  • Simple to use administration features and usergroup permission settings.
  • Landing page with the most recent, most popular and highest rated media.
  • Ability to add media into a single category, while adding multiple tags.
  • Ability to browse media through categories, tags, and user contributions.
  • Summary tag cloud with a link to the entire list of tags in the system.
  • Comment and rating system based on AJAX including graceful degredation.
  • Individual RSS Feeds for newest videos, categories, tags and user media.
  • Search function for titles and descriptions.
Installation:
If you are upgrading from before version 1.1, please install that version first.
  1. Upload all the files in the "upload" directory of the attached zip file to your forum root.
  2. CHMOD the /customVID/thumbs/ directory to full read/write/execute 777 permissions.
  3. CHMOD the /customVID/sitemap/ directory to full read/write/execute 777 permissions.
  4. Import the product file called "product-medialibrary.xml" in the Product Manager of vBulletin.
  5. Set your usergroup permissions and media library settings in your administration control panel.
  6. OPTIONAL: Enable the "Generate XML Media Sitemap" scheduled task in your administration control panel.

    NOTES: Make sure you decide what you wish to use for your thumbnail quality setting. By default, thumbnails are saved at 50% quality. At 50%, thumbnails will only be 2kb in size, but at the expense of quality. At 100%, thumbnails will be about 15kb in size, but will have the highest quality. I recommend setting it to 80%, which would leave thumbnails at 5kb in size with still excellent quality.

    Every time you change your thumbnail quality setting, you will need to run the "Rebuild Media Thumbnails" to see any changes.
Upgrading from VDR:
  1. The "video*" tables from your previous installation of VDR need to exist in your database.
  2. Enable the "media ADMIN import" plugin in the plugin manager of your control panel.
  3. Run the "Import Media from VDR" process in your update counters menu in maintenance.
  4. Disable the "media ADMIN import" plugin in the plugin manager of your control panel.
  5. Run the "Rebuild Media Thumbnails" process in your update counters menu in maintenance.
  6. You may now uninstall VDR once you confirm everything has been imported as intended.

    NOTES: You will mostly likely get at least one error while rebuilding media thumbnails...

    When you get an error, click the details link for that media. If the media displays some sort of error such as "This video has been removed" or "This video no longer exist", then that means that media is gone and you'll be unable to generate a thumbnail for that particular media. Use the available options on that media's detail page to DELETE it from your library. Then go back to your browser window which is rebuilding thumbnails and click the "retry from this position" link.

    If you got an error for a media, but after clicking the details link you can find no obvious error with the video; then the error could have just been a simple syn/ack failure. Just click the "retry from this position" link and the system will try to rebuild that thumbnail again.
Known Bugs:
There is a conflict with this modification and some of Valter's VSA modifications that will prevent navbar permissions from being handled correctly. I don't know exactly who's fault it is; but I'm pretty sure there are no errors in my code that would be causing this problem. There is a work around for this however.

Sorry if this is a stupid question. But, I have an extreme interest in this hack but I need to know a little more about it.

Do you just post in a thread (or create a thread) and you can embed videos. Or, you add it to a library.

Or, actually both. You add to posts and a library is created?

Again, just trying to get the gist of things.

Please advise.

Thanks!!

Have the same issue but at least the videos do work. Jaxel is right about megavideo flipping that API around. I guess the only thing I could suggest is to get the config set for the current API and rebuild the thumbnails. After that, just don't use the rebuild thumbnail function anymore. I noticed that if I add new videos, the thumbnails will work. If I rebuild after that, they go black on the newly added videos too. Maybe when Jaxel has time, he can provide a temporary fix to get the existing thumbnails back, then we can rebuild and move on from there.

You post directly to the hack but it has options to post to a forum as well. I do highly recommend this hack. I've tried several other solutions and this is simply the best one I've ever seen. Easy to use and easy to configure. I am confused why Jaxel is not selling it as a product. He should be swimming in a pool of money right now if he did.

I dont plan on fixing MegaVideo. The last time I went to MegaVideo (2 days ago), I got a MASSIVE virus that took down my system. I managed to eradicate the virus, but it has rendered an essential program unusable (Ahoihoi).

Oh that's bad news. Hope you didn't take a lot of damage or lose data. No plans for megavideo is not good news either but I guess the black thumbs are not such a big deal really if the new ones work.

Ok how about this. Can you post the info for the API and how to adjust the application? That way some of us can try to see if we can come up with a temp solution?

Remember, you can manually load thumbnails on the media edit screen...

That would take a great deal of time. Time has never been a friend of mine. Actually I have an idea that I am going to try but it would only work for people who upgraded. If it's successful I will post it. It involves using the thumbnails from the video directory hack. I have not had a chance to investigate yet but I am thinking to take the thumbnails from there and apply it to the directory of the media folder. Well that is considering that I did backup the whole forum up before the upgrade. I can't say that this will be a fix for everyone if it is even do-able.
