This is a new modification, spawning from the old VB 3.x Video Directory modifications.
For all intents and purposes, both my old Video Directory Remixed mod, and Survivor's original Video Directory mod have been discontinued. Neither of us are maintaining these older versions, they will not receive any future updates and we will not be providing any support. This version has a new name because it has been completely rewritten from scratch and is not being built on Survivor's old code. Because of this, if you are upgrading to this new version, from the old version, be sure to read this entire post in order to understand the upgrade process.

What is this mod?
Simply put, this mod is a directory for media. It supports URL inputs, in order to extract meta data and directorize media into a simple and easy to understand library. Users can add their favorite media from a select few online distribution centers (such as Youtube or Vimeo) and categorize and tag them as they see fit. This mod offers rudimentary support for the hosting of local media. An administrator can upload a media to the /customVID/ (default) directory; then add the media to the library using the URL code of "local:filename". Media hosted locally will be displayed using JWPlayer, but will not provide meta data, so that kind of information will need to be entered manually.

Demo:
http://www.8wayrun.com/media.php

Features:
  • Integrated directly into the vBulletin user database and product manager.
  • Fully phrased and built on tempaltes for easy re-skinning and styling.
  • Simple to use administration features and usergroup permission settings.
  • Landing page with the most recent, most popular and highest rated media.
  • Ability to add media into a single category, while adding multiple tags.
  • Ability to browse media through categories, tags, and user contributions.
  • Summary tag cloud with a link to the entire list of tags in the system.
  • Comment and rating system based on AJAX including graceful degredation.
  • Individual RSS Feeds for newest videos, categories, tags and user media.
  • Search function for titles and descriptions.
Installation:
If you are upgrading from before version 1.1, please install that version first.
  1. Upload all the files in the "upload" directory of the attached zip file to your forum root.
  2. CHMOD the /customVID/thumbs/ directory to full read/write/execute 777 permissions.
  3. CHMOD the /customVID/sitemap/ directory to full read/write/execute 777 permissions.
  4. Import the product file called "product-medialibrary.xml" in the Product Manager of vBulletin.
  5. Set your usergroup permissions and media library settings in your administration control panel.
  6. OPTIONAL: Enable the "Generate XML Media Sitemap" scheduled task in your administration control panel.

    NOTES: Make sure you decide what you wish to use for your thumbnail quality setting. By default, thumbnails are saved at 50% quality. At 50%, thumbnails will only be 2kb in size, but at the expense of quality. At 100%, thumbnails will be about 15kb in size, but will have the highest quality. I recommend setting it to 80%, which would leave thumbnails at 5kb in size with still excellent quality.

    Every time you change your thumbnail quality setting, you will need to run the "Rebuild Media Thumbnails" to see any changes.
Upgrading from VDR:
  1. The "video*" tables from your previous installation of VDR need to exist in your database.
  2. Enable the "media ADMIN import" plugin in the plugin manager of your control panel.
  3. Run the "Import Media from VDR" process in your update counters menu in maintenance.
  4. Disable the "media ADMIN import" plugin in the plugin manager of your control panel.
  5. Run the "Rebuild Media Thumbnails" process in your update counters menu in maintenance.
  6. You may now uninstall VDR once you confirm everything has been imported as intended.

    NOTES: You will mostly likely get at least one error while rebuilding media thumbnails...

    When you get an error, click the details link for that media. If the media displays some sort of error such as "This video has been removed" or "This video no longer exist", then that means that media is gone and you'll be unable to generate a thumbnail for that particular media. Use the available options on that media's detail page to DELETE it from your library. Then go back to your browser window which is rebuilding thumbnails and click the "retry from this position" link.

    If you got an error for a media, but after clicking the details link you can find no obvious error with the video; then the error could have just been a simple syn/ack failure. Just click the "retry from this position" link and the system will try to rebuild that thumbnail again.
Known Bugs:
There is a conflict with this modification and some of Valter's VSA modifications that will prevent navbar permissions from being handled correctly. I don't know exactly who's fault it is; but I'm pretty sure there are no errors in my code that would be causing this problem. There is a work around for this however.

Just an idea and maybe it could be edited and made into another mod or intergrated with this ?

But if this could be the exact same but for images,etc

As a gaming clan, Many of our members like to create signatures and show them off in their posts, but this mod if it could be edited would be a great way to show off sigs that other members can look through and request to use

You think thos could be done and would you do it ?

No alternative than to uninstall as it would never be able to go live on my site as it runs vbseo.

The product has a fundamental conflict with vbseo that even when you place media.php in the ignore list it still conflicts.

Also if you allow the built in SEO options to run then it conflicts with vbulletin profiles and refuses to load up peoples profiles. Could be vbseo again.

Some further input:

I think when you are using the playlist you should be able to add videos easier than urls to the playlist and also when you're listening to the playlist i think you should have an option to automatically jump to next video. This would mean you could have a music jukebox where you just press play and listen to someone's playlist.

Also I would like to be able to add videos that are not allowed to be embedded and then be able to be promoted to watch on youtube like what happens when you place a youtube video on the forum.

Its possible to make this work for images, just be creating an image hoster file.

No, this is a complete rewrite.

As I said before, I don't give support for people with issues using VBSEO. I personally think VBSEO is snake oil and I've been very vocal about it.

Video sizes are configured in the hoster settings.

You would have to add "checked" to the field in the template.

Dear coder, I have vbseo installed and I request you to look in to it because I cannot un-install vbseo just for it. This would be great if it can be worked with vbseo as well. This is awsome plugin and you are a great coder.

This is the correct format for the media url... however this is a PASSWORD PROTECTED show, so it will not work in the public Media Library.
Um, I can't get this to work at all.

"
Could not parse media URL.
"

For any media url on that website,.

Might be that I am dumb, but what does the "depth" actually do? Also, anyway to have sub-categories?

Thanks!
