Goldbrick Media system for vBulletin 3.7

Thanks to all who nominated or voted this for MOTM.

Some of you might be looking for Anymedia. Well this has replaced it. It's a total rewrite from the ground up. A huge thanks goes to Sir Adrian for creating the framework. He can't cook soup but he sure can code.

Why the name goldbrck?

From Wikipedia:
Goldbricking, in today's terms, generally refers to staff who use their work internet access for personal reasons while maintaining the appearance of working.
From Urban Dictionary:
Goldbricking: To loaf or goof around on the job. Supposedly an old union term describing laborers (or more specifically, bricklayers) who were going so slow, it was as if each brick were made of solid gold. One can alse be referred to as a "goldbricker".

Dude, I spent all day at work goldbricking - surfing the web, making long distance phone calls - basically just picking my ass.
Goldbrick uses the following third party Products:

What's new in Goldbrick?

correct? Instead it is adding

which gives only a url link. This is using 1.8 and that is of course as I explained after I fully uninstalled 1.5. The option in the ACP "Show the download link?" is set to "No" but I tried it both ways.

Hope that helps explain it better.
Tom, go to vbulletin options, then Goldbrick media options. Double check to see if where it says "Set the tag name for the BBcode." that is says "media" instead of "url".

You all really need to read what I wrote. I changed it to URL and it worked then because it was not working as it should. Do we understand that so far. It was not using the bbcode MEDIA..it was putting the bbcode URL there. The bbcode MEDIA was in the ACP where it should be. I changed it however to URL to see if it would show the youtube embed in a post and it did. However we all know that is the incorrect method. The correct method the mod uses is MEDIA as the bbcode and it is not using it. Do we follow me now? IT is not functioning by putting the word [media] http://whatevertoyoutube.com/ickydoodle.movie [/media] that would be the raw code you would see if the video wasn't there. It isn't. It is using URL instead of MEDIA. Don't make me get my etch a sketch out and draw pictures!

Just to avoid any confusion you can see I do have it selected as "media" however I think it is working now. I will see but I didn't do anything.

Nix... I also forgot to mention that if you have multiple Google Video on the same post at the same time, when you hit submit new thread, you'll receive php error in return on google.php file.

The flashvar link is wrong. I have vbseo installed. Could this be the issue?

Yes the mp3 is in the options, I am using the file system and the path is correct. Like I said, the inline url to the attachment is correct but the flashvar url is not.

Correct : http://www.voice-overs.com/forum/att...g-gravity2.mp3
not correct: http://www.voice-overs.com/forum/att...mentid=324.mp3

Go read all the post in this thread and the 3.6 thread and then let me know if my simple questions are a waste of time.

I've said not all features in implemented yet, so that bbcode tag options doesn't do anything.

For goldbrick to auto phrase a link this is what it needs.

What link are you posting that doesn't work?

DivX thumbnails

It was user posted content. After looking at the goldbrick_player tempalate though, I realized what was happening. I didn't quite understand how the thumbs were being added till now (still don't fully understand though). The user that was embedding DivX videos in her posts were embedding videos directly off of her server, which doesn't have any thumbnails associated with them.

So, my question is how do you need data sent to this plugin in order for thumbnails to work? She's totally cool with building whatever is needed to get her videos to display properly on my site, we just need to know how Goldbrick needs them to be sent

I had one other question though about the template. If I'm trying to troubleshoot what is going wrong with embedding in the forums threads/posts, why am I looking at a template that has the variable $info[profile] in it?

If it's user posted content, there is no thumbnail to display. It will just show the default gif. I could add that as an option when posting media.

It just is NOT that important to me my friend. You evidently still didn't get what I said out of all of that. Your bbcode for using the function simply was not working and I was merely pointing it out. If you didn't understand that then it is not my problem to keep trying to simplify my explanation of it over and over. I will just go back to what I was using. I don't see where you got so confused with what I considered somewhat well explained feedback.

I'm not sure I understand. What exactly do you mean by "user posted content"?

Isn't there something that you already have built into the DivX embedding that automatically grabs an image from a URL (much like YouTube)? If so, what do I need to have her do to make this work with the videos on her server?

I'm not sure why you're getting so hostile. If there is a bug I'll fix it. I just need to know what the problem is. From reading your post, you've posted a link and when you hit reply it wraps it in url tags. If that is what is happing, goldbrick didn't do anything. Changing the acp setting to url doesn't do anything. That setting isn't live yet. If this isn't your problem I'm not sure what is.

By user posted content I mean any media that isn't part of a video site.

The attachments are being stored at forum/attachments/. What would that line of code need to be to pull those attachments?

So far I have :

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

But it is not pulling the name. What is the variable to do so? And will it need to be added to the function line?

This fixes most bugs. There are some left, this version just fixes the major ones.

Bug Fixes that I remember
  1. Removed highslide and replaced (smaller footprint now)
  2. Profiles fixed
  3. edit post fixed
  4. dailymotion fixed
  5. um, a lot more I just don't remember
  6. attachments fixed

I'll also have a working demo up soon.
I have upgraded to 1.8 and no other site but youtube is working now, dailymotion adn google video are not parsed even if I add Tags manually. Great work and thanks for keeping this hook updated.

Yes, only YouTube is working properly. Veoh is also working. Google is working but if you have more than 1 video in the same post, when you submit the new thread, you'll get error in google.php file.
And this monster Dailymotion is never worked for me at all.
