This mod has been rewritten for vB4x here: http://www.vbulletin.org/forum/showthread.php?t=240677

This modification is based on the Video-Directory modification by Survivor and vBPoint.org.
His mod is NOT dead, its still alive and kicking; but he has informed me that he just doesn't have the time to maintain it and give support. So until he is able to work on it agian; I've been doing a series of updates.

What is this mod?

This mod adds a fully featured and fully integrated video directory archive to your forums. Users can add their favorite videos from their favorite video service to the directory. I only support a few select hosters; but the hoster scripting is XML base, so any user can create their own scripts for any number of hosting services. The old MyVideo and Sevenload scripts from Survivor's version will still work, but they wont pull in Keyword/Tagging information, nor the video length time codes.

Basic Feature Listing:
  • Fully integrated into the vBulletin user database and product manager.
  • Fully phrased and built on templates for easy reskinning and styling.
  • Fully administratable and a myriad of settings for personalization.
  • Complete customization of permissions based on usergroups.
  • Landing page for broad information and fully featured tag cloud.
  • Category profiles for videos.
  • Contribution profiles for users.
  • Keyword profiles for tag cloud.
  • Built in comment system for videos.
  • Search function for titles and descriptions.
  • RSS feed of videos.
Product Demo:
http://www.8wayrun.com/video.php
Installation Procedure:
  1. Upload all files in the "upload" directory to your forum root.
  2. CHMOD /videothumbnails/* and /includes/videoserviceapi to 777.
  3. Import the product "product-videodirectory.xml" in your Product Manager.
  4. Follow the on screen instructions to configure your video hoster settings.
  5. Refresh your administration control panel to see the new navigation links.
NOTES:
vBulletin 3.7.0 instituted a new avatar-thumbnail system. There is a high probability that you are unaware of this new system and may have failed to setup your vBulletin to make use of it. Make sure that a directory called /thumbs is located in your avatar directory and CHMOD it to 777. Then go into Maintenance > Update Counters and run the Rebuild Custom Avatar Thumbnails process.
Upgrade Procedure:
  1. Upload all files in the "upload" directory to your forum root.
  2. Take note of the information stored in Limits of Videos > General Settings.
  3. Import the product "product-videodirectory.xml" in your Product Manager.
  4. Re-establish your previous Limits settings in Videos > General Settings.
  5. Re-import ALL of your hosters and settings in Videos > Manage hosters.
    • You MUST remember to re-import your hosters after upgrading.
NOTES:
You may lose your category dataman when you upgrade. If no categories are listed after an upgrade, you will be required to rebuild your category dataman. Its very easy to rebuild it if you need to. Simply go into Videos > Manage categories, select ANY category and hit [Edit], then click [Save]. Your category dataman will automatically be rebuilt.
Roadmap for the Future:
  • Moderation
  • Favorites
  • Playlists
Don't forget to click INSTALL!

Export your youtube hoster as an xml file, once downloaded edit it and find the line below, see my values, perfect for youtube wide screen (width="540" height="360") - if you make it 640x you get black bars either side left and right.

Hello

and sorry for my very bad english. I have some problems with the comment. If I make a comment, I can not see this. I refresh the site and for just one moment I can see the comment and than the commentbox is empty.


I upgraded from 1.1 to the newest version and I can see all the older comments. Is there a problem with my Video_commentbit template? Or is there another problem?

thank you for help!

Cool PopModal XML

Hello Folks,
Just want to start off by saying this Mod Rocks, and we've been using it for sometime now. I do however have a question, Can anyone explain to me how I can make a Hoster definition XML for a site that doesn't exist as one of the hosters listed/Included? I've tried modifing some of the existing ones and uploading them, but I'm missing something somewhere. I'm sure it has something to do with the URL info and the way I'm entering it into the xml. This site does it quite different then most of the others, so I'm very perplexed with the code I see in these. I think if I knew how to make a Wildcard for part of the URL I could get it. But I dont know how to do that, * and *.* dont seem to work.

We have recently been reviewing quite a number of videos from a site called www.PopModal.com I have no idea where to start and was hoping someone could point me in the right direction. Below is the Embed and URL information, I don't know if that will be of any help to help figure this out but figured I'd include it.

Any chances this mod will add in a feature for using "own video player"? Basically allowing the site admin to play all youtube video through the sites external player?

It would stop members or visitors from clicking the video to see where the video is on youtube.
