Not Supported DB Changes Uses Plugins Template Edits Additional Files  

From the makers of the letters O and Yea comes the hottest 'must have mod' of the season: AME 2.5 - The Return of The Hot Mama.

Thanks everyone for making AME 2.5 Mod of the Month

AME is the multi award winning modification that smartly scans new and edited posts for URLs from a customisable variety of web sites (i.e. YouTube or Amazon or about 200 others). If it finds a match, AME will 'transform' the URL into inline embedded media without your users ever having to even think about it.

It was important for me to create a system that did not need updating (and subsequent reinstalling) every time one of the sites it supported decided to change the way it displayed its media (which is all the fricken time). Therefore I built a system in which the 'definitions' for each site could be imported, exported, tweaked and shared on a whim. This way, you only have to import the definitions that you want. It also allows the vB community to get creative and share definitions that I wouldn't of thought of!

Which sites are supported?

Included in the default installation is YouTube and Amazon. At time of posting this, I believe that there are over 180 sites supported that have been created by the vBulletin community. These range from sites that stream videos to Amazon referral links to locally hosted music and video files.

Check out the 'add ons' section of this post below to see availible add-ons.

For a total list of features and an FAQ, see click here.
For a post on troubleshooting, click here.

Though not tested on any version of vBulletin lower than 3.7.4, in theory it should work on versions 3.5 and higher (just dont quote this bit!).

Big thanks goes out to all those in the community that have supported this mod. Especially Digital Jedi who gives great support on this mod and has created over 160 definitions for this system alone!


Installation/Upgrade
  • Upload the contents of the forums folder into your forums directory and import the product-ame.xml file into your product manager (if upgrading, choose 'yes' to overwrite previous installation).
  • After installation, make sure that the system is on (admincp->AME CP->Settings)
  • Then you may want to try to rebuild old URLs via the tools option.

Is it always in the same spot? What if you change the number of results per page?

Hmm... the variables are being used fine here... can you give me an export of a definition that you feel isn't working as intended? (just one please!)

Heh, I DON'T count.

They've always been marked as unsupported, since updates can be done on the fly by the community. I just hang around and create the illusion it is. Kind of like the illusion I create to make it sound like I know what I'm talking about.

Heh, sure. Here's one where you won't have to go anywhere to grab URLs. I made this one to auto format internal link from your forum. This one does Forums and Category links (NOTE: does not do the ones with "daysprune" in the URL). It's supposed to grab the URL and title of the page.

Changed the results per page to 50 and it worked like a charm.

Okay, I gotta give this more love. I LOVE that it does not quote the videos, but only a link. Because we get crazy people who quote 99 times.

I worship this.

Thanks DJ. Found the problem and have sorted it for next release. Its pretty minor so I'll hold off to see if there is anything else that needs to get fixed before I do another release. As a side note, make sure all $url and $title variables in your definitions are $ameinfo[url] and $ameinfo[title] respectively. $url will no longer put the url in and $title may or may not produce the title you are after

Thanks again!

lmao, thanks I found it annoying too, hence the reason it doesnt do it

They are in the first post of the thread, but here are the specific changes from 2x to 2.5:
  • Validation ability. This will help prevent media being embedded that can not be embedded (i.e. youtube videos that the author has stipulated can not be shown off of youtube). This option requires the extraction option to be turned on and a valid validation regexp. I have included one in the default youtube version. When a video on you tube gets embedded, but the author doesnt allow embedding, a link (with icon) is shown instead.
  • Ability to prevent non authorised usergroups from viewing (see Readme file in zip for more info)
  • Usergroup permissions (edit usergroup to adjust edit/view permissions)
  • Template driven system
  • Signatures supported
  • Different sizes and template configurations for each supported zone (posts, blogs, groups, visitor messages and signatures)
  • A couple new hooks (Mainly to support a future add on for AME media in profiles)
  • Notfication system (similar to vB's to check for errors)
  • Definition keys for easier updating of definitions and to use in templates
  • File caching system which radically reduces processing
  • And more that I cant think of off the top of my head!

Maybe the wrong place for this

..... but with some of the the YouTube HD videos being in a wide screen format is there a way of accommodating this feature?

Cheers

The videos still get show in widescreen format. But if you can change the Replacement HTML if you want a larger video monitor.

Is this the same site as the one in your profile? Because the videos at that site are showing on the vBa pages.

Show us a link to the video that's not embedding. Also, double check your settings.
