@ Frequently Asked Questions
Q: I got white screen when playing a google video.
A: AnyMedia fetch the correct video url, but there's sth wrong with the flvplayer.swf, try to refresh the page to solve it.

Q: When using mp3player.swf to play mp3, it's played fast/slowly.
A: Flash doesn't support vbr (variable bit rate) mp3 files.It only support a mp3 with a fixed bitrate of 64/96/128 kbps ,a sample frequency of 22.05kHz and joint stereo. To solve it, turn the option off in admincp to make it be played by WMP.

Q: I have to click play button twice to play a google video.
A: Emmm... Even using the google player, you also have to click twice. I don't know why, and I'm trying to fixed it. If you know, just tell me.

Q: The supported extensions checkbox are always unchecked even if I check them all.
A: The permission cache is not updated. Overwrite the 'includes/xml/bitfield_anymedia.xml' file, and log into your admincp to visit 'admincp/index.php?do=buildbitfields' to rebuild the permission cache.

Q: When I use build-in player to play Youtube, it will be loading all the time.
A: To use the build-in player to play Youtube videos, your server have to enable the 'allow_url_fopen' option, or enable the 'fsockopen / curl_init' functions. If failed, turn the 'Use AnyMedia Player for Youtube Video' option off in admincp.

Q: I cannot get the PPLive working with my Firefox or etc.
A: As far as I know, the pplive object can only work with IE. And if you know how to embed it on FireFox, just tell me.

@ Todo
1. Add a Playlist.
2. Integrate it with CMPS, Link & Download Sys, and etc.
3. read ID3 tag.

@ Notes
1. We need other translations, if you made one, just PM me.

If you like the hack, Please click .

I DO NOT know whether I should update the hack.
I'm not a coder of vBulletin-Chinese Team now, as I left there weeks ago.
Sorry about this, and I'll tell you how the update's going if it's really on the way.

Looks interesting
I try to stay away from file edits but this one may well be worth it when I get round to using it live.

Is there a way to restrict the media tag per forum id's ?

Hm, installed, but not working - nothing at all shows up in the post. Files uploaded, changes made, product imported.

What am I missing?

I thought the template compressor might be hosing it, but it makes no difference.

If I view my source, there's no reference to it at all.

Crist, you can edit code make the end user (as me, you or someone) can easily choose the other tag name (not only the tag call is "media", so the end user can edit to diffence name they like).

For simple more, Can you make the option call example is "abc" include the name tag to run all media type (put in Vbulletin Options in AdminCP)?. After, the end user go to AdminCP/Vbulletin Options/abc will check & fill the fied name tag. Default name tag is "media" as the author is Crist written the code, the end user as me when install & using mod hack will change the tag is "media" to "music" for suitable of my forum. After, the "music" tag will become the main tag to run all media type instead of the "media" tag.
