btw I saw a guy who wanted a WeGame hoster, I made one for it however it requires PHP5 with SimpleXML libraries (couldn't get the built-in vbulletin XML class to work, perhaps you can fix it Surviver and maybe include in future releases)

Edit:
if interested to use this, after installation create a folder called "WeGame" (case sensitive) in "videothumbnails" folder and give it write(777) permission

I changed a lot of the formatting, so that it looks less generic and can display more information a single screen... plus, on the video details pages, hacked your code up to support BB Code for [youtube] tags.
That's amazing! Please share your work with us!

When I tried to use it, I got an error and the thumbnail creation failed. *frustrated* So close.... The video shows tho and will play but I uninstalled it.

Ooooooh someone fix it for me! My forum members are gathering the pitchforks and torches.......

all you need to do is, creating a folder called "WeGame" (case sensitive) in "videothumbnails" folder and giving it write(777) permission

as for PHP5 question, it seems you already have PHP5 with SimpleXML libraries

a feature request to Survivor,

-> multi-level categories

all that needs to be done is adding "parentid" to cats and creating a function to show them all in right structure

by the way I modified the code to have maximum 3 level cats but it's not worth sharing as its just a nested while loop

cheers

are you going to release this update and if not Surviver are you going to implement bbcode in the next update and when can we expect the next update?

Okay... here is how you add BBCode... (I'm doing this with BeyondCompare3, so if I forget something, I'm sorry)

in VIDEO.PHP FIND:

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

REPLACE WITH:

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

FIND:

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

REPLACE WITH:

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.


In STYLES -> VIDEO-DETAILS REPLACE WITH:

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

Attached are the two YouTube XML files required for all this... (YouTube and YouTubeHD)
You don't have to use the YouTubeHD.xml, but you MUST use the included YouTube.xml

Here is my version of STYLES -> VIDEO-BIT if you care...
(The HD tag will only work if you are using the included YouTubeHD.xml)
