Not Supported DB Changes Uses Plugins Auto-Template Additional Files Translations External Content  

From the team who brought you the blockbuster film "Yahtzee!", comes the next major motion picture about incredibly bad and arbitrary puns:

AME 2.5.7: Electric Boogaloo


AME automatically embeds media in posts without the need for pesky BBCode cluttering up your editor toolbar. It's also lightweight, and saves resources that BBCode would ordinarily consume. Your users don't even have to know you have AME installed. If they share a link from YouTube, Dailymotion, Amazon, Metacafe or Vimeo, AME automatically embeds the content for them. No special code to learn. No instructions for newbies to understand.

In addition, AME allows you to create, import and export support for individual websites in the form of media definitions. These XML files expand your AME to support a limitless number of websites from around the net and let you share them with the community. We currently have around 200 media definitions collected at this repository thread. If you want additional support for website not listed, please ask for it there. Odds are, we might already have one. (TIP: Be sure to check the Add-Ons section below for stuff you might miss out on, otherwise.)




CREDITS

This modification was originally built by The Geek, who is no longer coding for vBulletin. We miss him. But he gave permission for someone to continue to build upon his work. All I've done is modify the code a little to support additional functionality and to provide a place to continue to support the product. The product didn't need too much tweaking, but I did manage to add some new features I think you will enjoy, which I'll lay out in the feature list below.



RECOMMENDATIONS

It is HIGHLY recommended that you read the READ ME.html file included in the ZIP file before you upgrade or install. You don't want to be blind-sided, now do you?




NEW INSTALLATIONS
  1. Download and Unzip the contents of the ZIP file.
    .
  2. Upload the contents of the "UPLOAD to Forum Root" folder to your forum's root directory. (This is the directory where your vBulletin is physically installed.) Also, if you've renamed your Admin CP folder, be sure to move the admincp folder's contents to your renamed directory.
    .
  3. CHMOD your amecache folder to 777.
    .
  4. Go to your Admin CP Plugins & Products Manage Products Add/Import Products and import the product-djs_AME-2.5.7.xml file.
    .
  5. Your Admin CP should automatically refresh and you should now see the AME CP somewhere below your vBulletin Options menu.



TO UPGRADE

If you are upgrading from AME 2.5.6.
  1. Delete custom definitions specifically for Amazon, Dailymotion, Metacafe, Vimeo and YouTube. (Key names: amazon, dailymotion, metacafe, vimeo and youtube) Theses five definitions are now hard coded into the product and will be updated along with the product if need be. You can back these up if you need to, but keep in mind if you use any custom defs for these sites, they will be duplicated every time you upgrade AME. So don't ask my why your videos are doubled up, or I'll throw rocks at you.
    .
  2. Upload the contents of the "UPLOAD to Forum Root" folder to your forum's root directory, overwriting previous versions of the files.
    .
  3. Ensure that your amecache directory is still CHMOD'd to 777.
    .
  4. Import the product-djs_AME-2.5.7.xml file into your Product Manager, making sure to set the option to Allow Overwrite to Yes.
    .
  5. If you are using the file cache, it is strongly recommended that you re-sync your cache using the Tools menu.

It's actually a kind of a scary thing to watch in operation, the page shows you which threads/posts it is converting.... If you set it for too few posts per cycle it takes FOREVER.. I think I settled on something like 1,000 and it still took a long time.

But that's to be expected when you're going back 100s of 1000s of posts, retro.

Just trying to figure out why it isn't working.

I have a vague idea of what happened. And it's likely my fault. Your YouTube definition didn't exist. I'm not sure if this was because of my upgrade instructions to delete YouTube in advanced (which I didn't clarify you only need to do upon upgrade from 2.5.6), or because some definitions were overwritten with different replacement content, but the names didn't change. So you might have deleted YouTube, since it wasn't actually called YouTube.

In any event, I had to delete four defs you did have. 220 and both 2KSports will need to be reimported. I went ahead and added YouTube, Dailymotion, Vimeo and replaced Amazon, since these were the five that incorrectly imported during upgrade. I'll address this install bug on the next update.

I've heard tell just adding the column to post table took literally a couple of hours on some installations. The several million posts boards. I can understand the trepidation.

I totally forgot to mention a couple of things. I didn't run the convert script again, since that would require you to do a database backup before taking that measure again. So older links wouldn't convert just yet.

Also, I believe because of the https://, I have to allow any videos to appear in my browser on my end. So everything's blank until I click the security message in Chrome. Probably seeing something similar in your browser.

And eBay. The eBay def broke a while back, (as eBay change a lot about their URL structure) and has been totally rewritten for my next update. So for now, that one just won't work. You may be interested in waiting for the new one, however. It looks something like this:

Without the option to choose how many are processed per cycle it would have been a days long affair!

It worked very slick though, very impressive.

I'll try to put this in the FAQ a little later, but if you're website is running an SSL certificate, you need to tweak your definition slightly in order to fully support external embedding.

Find the source URL in your respective definitions' Replacement HTML:

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

Add an s.


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

Of course, the respective website needs to actually provide https URLs. Most do. A few don't. But relatively easy to check, and easy enough to tweak for your most used websites.

Is it an unusual zip of some sort? I've opened hundreds with the same Windows 7 built in unzipper before.

I downloaded and unzipped, then uploaded the package twice. I don't think it's an uzipping error.
