From the team who brought you the blockbuster film "Yahtzee!", comes the next major motion picture about incredibly bad and arbitrary puns:

AME 2.5.7: Electric Boogaloo


AME automatically embeds media in posts without the need for pesky BBCode cluttering up your editor toolbar. It's also lightweight, and saves resources that BBCode would ordinarily consume. Your users don't even have to know you have AME installed. If they share a link from YouTube, Dailymotion, Amazon, Metacafe or Vimeo, AME automatically embeds the content for them. No special code to learn. No instructions for newbies to understand.

In addition, AME allows you to create, import and export support for individual websites in the form of media definitions. These XML files expand your AME to support a limitless number of websites from around the net and let you share them with the community. We currently have around 200 media definitions collected at this repository thread. If you want additional support for website not listed, please ask for it there. Odds are, we might already have one. (TIP: Be sure to check the Add-Ons section below for stuff you might miss out on, otherwise.)




CREDITS

This modification was originally built by The Geek, who is no longer coding for vBulletin. We miss him. But he gave permission for someone to continue to build upon his work. All I've done is modify the code a little to support additional functionality and to provide a place to continue to support the product. The product didn't need too much tweaking, but I did manage to add some new features I think you will enjoy, which I'll lay out in the feature list below.



RECOMMENDATIONS

It is HIGHLY recommended that you read the READ ME.html file included in the ZIP file before you upgrade or install. You don't want to be blind-sided, now do you?




NEW INSTALLATIONS
  1. Download and Unzip the contents of the ZIP file.
    .
  2. Upload the contents of the "UPLOAD to Forum Root" folder to your forum's root directory. (This is the directory where your vBulletin is physically installed.) Also, if you've renamed your Admin CP folder, be sure to move the admincp folder's contents to your renamed directory.
    .
  3. CHMOD your amecache folder to 777.
    .
  4. Go to your Admin CP Plugins & Products Manage Products Add/Import Products and import the product-djs_AME-2.5.7.xml file.
    .
  5. Your Admin CP should automatically refresh and you should now see the AME CP somewhere below your vBulletin Options menu.



TO UPGRADE

If you are upgrading from AME 2.5.6.
  1. Delete custom definitions specifically for Amazon, Dailymotion, Metacafe, Vimeo and YouTube. (Key names: amazon, dailymotion, metacafe, vimeo and youtube) Theses five definitions are now hard coded into the product and will be updated along with the product if need be. You can back these up if you need to, but keep in mind if you use any custom defs for these sites, they will be duplicated every time you upgrade AME. So don't ask my why your videos are doubled up, or I'll throw rocks at you.
    .
  2. Upload the contents of the "UPLOAD to Forum Root" folder to your forum's root directory, overwriting previous versions of the files.
    .
  3. Ensure that your amecache directory is still CHMOD'd to 777.
    .
  4. Import the product-djs_AME-2.5.7.xml file into your Product Manager, making sure to set the option to Allow Overwrite to Yes.
    .
  5. If you are using the file cache, it is strongly recommended that you re-sync your cache using the Tools menu.

VB software kinda sucks now
Alot of people revert to vB 4, which you can download from your members area at vbulletin dot com. Seen it done. Here most recently.

Edit: Just a heads up.

Installation automatically rewrote all of my Amazon links to use DJ's affiliate ID. Using the tools to revert them, all of the URLs were no longer hotlinks, just raw text. I have to restore from a backup to undo this, because Amazon is a big revenue provider for my forum. Uninstalling the product and using the tool basically nuked several years of affiliated links from my site.

Looking at the XML file for this mod the only Amazon coding I see is to format Amazon Video services. What is the AF ID you are seeing being applied?

I should have been more specific - this mod, plus the definitions:

http://www.vbulletin.org/forum/showp...03&postcount=3

Amazon.com (Thumbnails) and (Links): The original Thumbnail version of the Amazon Links was created by nevetS in one of the old XML threads and it was the first definitions created to demonstrate turning product links into thumbnails rather then links.

Note that I have also included my affiliate IDs in these definitions, mainly because these are constructed on my live site. To work in your own affiliate ID in either the Links or Thumbnails definitions, look for the instances of the ?tag= in theReplacement HTMLand replace the following IDs with your own. Or, again, you can leave them in. Won't hurt my feelings.
I should have RTFP'd a bit better, heh. Uninstalling it, like I said, rewrote all of the URLs back to normal but none of them were actually parsed as links anymore. So I had hundreds of posts with amazon links that weren't click-able links anymore. Not fun.

So, it was the one of the definitions - I'm not using his definitions package.

VB5 has built in video embedding and my video embedding mod will automatically embed youtube and vimeo videos embedded with AME - http://www.vbulletin.org/forum/showthread.php?t=288954

I didn't see this when you first posted, but FYI for anyone coming across this later, you only have to edit the definition to replace your affiliate ID with your own. (Keeping in mind that caching of any kind may not properly reflect your changes right away.) My ID doesn't work anymore, and hasn't for a few years. It's just in there so you can change it and implement your own without a lot of fuss. I did, however, point that out in the FAQ.

Yes, an uninstall without running the conversion tools first will results in unparsed links. I was certain I had included this in the README, and it is mentioned in various places like in the Admin CP and the FAQ, but apparently I didn't include it in a prominent place. I'll be sure to put that in main README file to prevent any confusion in the future.

The Amazon rewrite only applies to people activating the Amazon Video functions in this modification. Correct? If you install it without Amazon Video there is no issue??

It only applies to posted links to Amazon products. (I'm unaware of any way to embed Amazon Videos.) But the links are editable within the definition. You simply add your own, or remove the ID string.

When a user posts a link to a video url such as;

http://www.worldstarhiphop.com/video...Jt34Y0079wW9uz

when they click "Submit Reply" the end result is a url like below

We just upgraded from 2.5.6.

It's very sad that, after all these years, the youtube definition still doesn't recognize short urls (youtu.be/...)

Question Turn Off Youtube Related Videos?

Is it possible to edit the Youtube main definition and Youtube Short URL definition so that when a video has finished playing no related videos show at the end?

What edits would I need to make?

Is this the latest version or is there an upgrade to this I am unaware of? It will be installed onto a VB 4 platform, latest version.

Thanks,
Phil

Yes....Your Youtube replacement HTML should look like this:

<iframe width="$ameinfo[width]" height="$ameinfo[height]" src="http://www.youtube.com/embed/$p1?start=$p2" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe>

You want to add &amp;rel=0 to that output URL. (rel is the parameter for related, 0 means off).

I added that after the $p2, so it ends up being this:

<iframe width="$ameinfo[width]" height="$ameinfo[height]" src="http://www.youtube.com/embed/$p1?start=$p2&amp;rel=0" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe>


Make the same change to the Youtube short URL definition.
