This is unlike my past video mod which used bbcode, this one is more simple and works much better for the user too. What it does it parses the url when the post is viewed, so it will work with past links and new links.

installed 2.0 full and on my vBulletin 3.6.7 PL1 it's not working...the interface in vbulletion options looks totally different than the screenshot. The support site is down and I followed the directions to the letter (not a newb at this). Any known issues that are preventing this from working? it says Works With: vBulletin [3.6.X to 3.7.0 beta 3] so I should be fine

Installing Passive Video 2.0

1. First, unzip the Passive Video zip file you downloaded from the licenses area to your hard disk.
2. Upload the entire contents of the 'upload/' folder to your web server, in the same directory where vBulletins showthread.php is located.
3. Install the product-passivevideo.xml
4. Rebuild the foruminfo (AdminCp -> Maintenance -> Update Counters -> Rebuild Forum Information)

The entire installation process should take no more than five minutes.

it looks like the 2.0 full I bought isn't compatible with vbulleting 3.6x after all...rolled back to the latest freebie version and it's working again but not with streetfire which is why I was trying 2.0

well the old 1.12 version doesn't work right either, getting a blank page when trying to load some threads so I disabled it and the threads are loading again.

There is no solution to this problem. Either YouTube removed the video off there server or the user deleted it or a copyright order was done such as certain rock videos that say "embedding disabled by request", they will not embed with this hack.

You can't code an embedded object to stay on a site and pull from the other site if the video is no longer there or embeddable.

The first time I click on the RSS link I get the errors. If I click it a second time the RSS feed works perfectly. If I disable the mod, clear cache/cookies all RSS feeds from my site work perfectly the first time.

Anyone experience these errors? Great mod by the way.
I actually did some tinkering around with this and while I don't know what caused the RSS error, nor do I know which version he fixed it in or if it will be fixed in 2.0.0. But what could be part of the problem is that you can actually take a video feed from youtube, and put it through your RSS Feed Manager on vBulletin and with this add on disabled it will just post the link to the video or nothing at all, depending upon what RSS options you are choosing ( i.e. encoded, description, more url, etc. ). If you enable this add on, you can grab there RSS feeds and this modification will automatically embed the object into the thread.

Because this modification changes the url to a video or auto embeds that, that is what is making it be able to embed videos through the RSS which is actually really cool. Because the more options we have that work with this mod, the more we can have literal RSS video feeds without using HTML to post the flash video's.

I am going to set up some small amount of daily feeds on my forum and probably show a link so people can see how it works. It's pretty sick, and places like YouTube and such like Gametrailers offer a ton of different video rss options.

Of course while however cool this is, it still messes up the RSS for our own forums, which I don't know why but I read a few posts ago that it might be fixed or is fixed, which version???


Coders Shack

I am cool with being one of the first for 2.0.0 as long as it is compatible with 3.6.8 PL 2, AND I want the RSS error fixed that we've talked about above. Oh...and I want added as well.

CNN allows embedding of videos and they have a Video RSS feed, which means I could RSS Feed CNN video news with a combination of there Feed and your modification.

Here is an example Embed Code for CNN, and thanks for catching my post on MTV, that's sick to.

P.S. I'll pay you 10 bucks if you add CNN to the list, but sadly still does not allow embedding of there videos.
