From the makers of Smooth and Jazz comes the singing sensation my mom has been waiting months for:

AME3. Bigger. Badder. Bestest.

NOTE ABOUT vB4.0.3: ------------------------------------------------------------

vBulletin 4.0.3 has changed the way video codes are handled and in the process, inadvertently broke AME3. I have submitted a bug report and believe that the issue will be quickly resolved. There is a manual fix you can apply for 4.0.3 here in the interim.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

AME3 is the sequel to the multi award winning AME 1x and AME 2x systems. AME3. This time, its different.
AME3 does 3 things:
  • It allows users to simply paste URLs into their message without having to use the video bbcode or video popup box.
  • It allows you to add, edit and customise the video definitions that ship with vB4
  • It allows you to import community created definitions to extend the system in ways you otherwise couldn't.
Now you can use AME anywhere you can use video bbcode: posts, blogs, visitor messages, the CMS, etc...

Note that I am releasing this early for beta testing and general feedback. There is currently a bug in RC2, RC4 and 4.0.0 that will prevent AME from working however there is a workaround posted below.

I have written a pretty comprehensive readme and attached it seperatly to this post. I suspect both this post and the readme will get updated as AME3 becomes finalised.

vBulletin 4.0.3 has totally changed the way video codes are processed. I have looked through the code and as it stands now, there isn't an obvious way to quick fix. In fact, I am not even sure how to fix it yet without at least a file edit.

I will try to come up with a solution, but note that I am migrating to IPB so I have my hands full. So sorry to say that until further notice: vb4.0.3 and AME3 are incompatible.

Can't say that I balme you. Every other VB update seems to completely change "something" in the code. I'm seriously starting to look elsewhere myself.

Thanks for the response it's much appreciated.

Since you are moving away from vbulletin and going with IPB does this mean you will eventually abandon your vbulletin addons?!

I'm only asking as if vbulletin keep changing it so we need updating mods all the time and you're not around it will be problematic.

I would prefer to know sooner rather than later so not to get my users used to having AME on vb4 and then for it to be taken away in a few weeks/months when they (vb) decide to change things again. Since vb4.0.3 is my first experience of vb4.

Thanks Geek

This is really sad news for me. I can't believe vBulletin is destroying its modding community this way!

My mods are unsupported to begin with - regardless of that, no one can give you a guarantee that their mods will continue to be developed as time goes on.

Personally I believe that vB will eventually fold this functionality into the core product. vB3x didn't have any embedding apart from AME - now AME only transforms links into vB4 video bbcode so its actually vB4 doing all the work under the hood.

In short - even IF AME stays|becomes incompatible, the only thing that will STOP working is automatic transformation of links to videos. The videos already embeded will stay and moving forward, users will just have to use vB's video bbcode. Its not like you won't be able to show videos any more.

As to why I am moving to IPB - it is because I believe it is the right move for my communities. It isn't 100% for sure (about 85%!) and it will still take some time to do so who knows what the future holds.

Thanks for understanding.

I have applied for a new hook to be added to take care of the issue in 4.0.3 so hopefully this will only be "broken" for this iteration. If you want to fix, you will need to apply the following file edit:

Note: THIS IS FOR VERSION 4.0.3.

Edit includes/functions_video.php and change:

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

to

Thanks for the edit Geek.

However and I'm not completely confident of it yet but it does seem to be (after an hour of testing)

As soon as I made the edit to the php and posted my first video I notice the majority of normal posts since were doubling up (double posts) at first I thought it was coincidence and then it happened to me.

I've since replace the old original php back and disabled the ame plugin and it seems no users have double posted yet.

Is anyone else having this problem?

I did this and now when I post a youtube link, the video simply isn't there. The post is completely blank.
