Not Supported Template Edits Code Changes Re-usable Code External Content  

I'm not sure if anyone has created this yet, but I do know that there are a lot of YouTube In Profile scripts floating around. All I have seen are hacks that only allow the inexperienced user (being me) one YouTube video in their users' profiles without explaining that they can add more if they want. If I seem to have ripped anyone's concept or idea off, PM me and I'll gladly remove this with no problems. I am fairly new to vB, so this is my first. Feel free to correct me on any of my mistakes. But please use constructive criticism.

What this does:

1. Allows you to have 10 mini YouTube videos in your profile (unless you edit the script to add more). All you have to do is copy and paste some of the script and add another $post[fieldX <--- replace the X with a correct field ID] after making a custom profile field.

2. Uses a Javascript pop up to detach and enlarge the video (just a little - it's a mini player) so you don't have to worry about staying at a person's profile waiting for the video to end. With this pop up, you do not have to create any additional pages.

3. The pop up is customizable as far as background color, size, scroll and the title. The flash script should be left alone as well as the <HTML> and <BODY> tags for the inexperienced user.

NOTE: I have installed the Interactive Profiles mod to have more of a MySpace type of setup. I also have a very slim style installed. So this is why everything is set up so small. You may adjust the sizes to fit your needs, as well as adding more or removing videos.


1. 1-2 template edits
2. Editing of the downloaded script and that's all.


1. Create however many profile fields you want to equal up to the amount of videos that will be available for your users. The template edit is preset to 10. Write the profile fields down in order. field10, field11.. etc.

2. The first field description should probably say something like this

Want to display up to 10 videos from YouTube in your profile? Enter the Video ID below. Example: If the video you want to link to is, then the ID you will enter will be JCnioLOANaM.
3. Edit the fields in the script. Example: $post[field10] should be changed to your first custom profile ID. So change EVERY 10 to whatever your first profile field is. The next field is 11. Whatever the next profile field you create says, you will replace EVERY 11 with the next number.. and so on. I'm sure you get the idea.

4. Go to AdminCP --> Styles & Templates --> Style Manager --> click the down arrow on the style of your choice and select Edit Templates. Scroll down until you see Member Info Templates. Double click and wait for the page to load.

5. Double click MEMBERINFO. Depending on how your profile is set up or whether you have installed something like Interactive Profiles like myself, it's kind of hard to determine where you would want something like this. So this is what we're going to do.. on to step 6.

6. Open Notepad and select all the text in your MEMBERINFO template and paste it into Notepad. This ensures that if something screws up, you know you have a backup of your template. Including any past customizations you've made.

7. Once you've backed your template up, find a spot (anywhere you want to try) and paste the whole script you've edited. Click save and refresh your profile. If something goes wrong, no worries. You still have a backup in Notepad. Simply paste the backup back into MEMBERINFO and try again. If I had a regular profile, I'd probably place it under the Contact Details. Since I have Interactive Profiles installed, I placed them under the Profile Pic section in the profile.

Sorry for such long instructions, but I was VERY confused when I started installing hacks on my vB and rarely had anyone to explain in detail. Did the best I could to make it noob friendly, as I am still a noob myself.

Please let me know if I left anything out.. or have an advanced coder fix any mistakes.

and Replace the field ID's in the order you have your YouTube videos. There are more added <if condition="$userinfo[fieldX]"> and those should be updated as well.. in order of course.

Updated and fixed bugs

Users can now choose any field to enter a YouTube video ID without the profile script breaking.

If you're viewing in IE, the MySpace player kills my profile - until the developer finds a fix. Have to view it with FireFox.

Pretty cool, I would probably install this if I was not going to be installing vb 3.7 in the coming weeks.

Thanks a lot guys. And I'll post when the site is open. Still have a lot of bugs and stuff to go through.. mainly the MySpace player in IE. I've heard 3.7 is coming out soon, but I'm dreading the upgrade because of all the modifications I've installed and having to see if they're compatible (minus the profile enhancements that 3.7 is supposed to have). Let me know how your installations went, for everyone installing this.

I dont get this mode to say the true (the instructions are fine but not what id does).

What i mean is if i add this mode and do the template changes than what does a user needs to do in order to add his 10 youtube videos to his profile?

Is there a way so that the user can upload the code from his users cp or the admin has to do it for him?

if i want to add it exactly at the same place that you have putted it on the demo shown what exactly do i have to do?

Sorry for this but i just dont get it

I'll post a screen shot of the profile fields in the UserCP.

Let's say your user wants to add their band's YouTube video.. or anything for that matter.

They'll get their YouTube link. Example:

Then in the profile field, they would paste the 0f9Q7VYnLJk part into the field. Then to add more videos, they just have to repeat the same step as many times as they want for however many videos you allow them to have.

If you want to place the videos in the same spot I have them, you'll first have to install the Interactive Profiles mod here After you have installed that, find the following code in your MEMBERINFO template:

And add the code below that. Note: I have edited the Profile Pic table script to my needs, so it may differ from yours slightly.

I was looking through the code today and saw that I had a lot of sizes mixed up. I guess that's what I get for doing this half asleep. Anyways, corrected all the errors I could see. Let me know if there are any others I left out.
