Do you have ftp access to your files or are you cloud hosted? I've actually got some previously used code to add "thumbnail" support to the existing rebuild feature. Which should make it into the next version but can provide a patch sooner if you can modify your files.

Hi Mike,

Yes, I have FTP access to my VPS, not on IPS cloud hosting. That would be great, currently my Videos System looks very broken.

Many thanks.

Any news on a fix, please Mike? My videos are still showing no image thumbnails since moving to S3 and Cloudfront.

The rebuild tool doesn't fix the thumbnails. If I edit a video and save it, it creates a new thumbnail but I need a bulk fix, ideally. Thanks.

Just now noticed that Video Statistics, on the Videos splash page, doesn't update when you delete videos: I had one test video and deleted it, and the video count remains at 1.

I've noted this in a bug report. I'm actually in the middle of updating the Videos app now, so will be included in the very next release.

I set 21 videos to show by category page in the settings

Do you have anything set in the categories "per page" setting? If a value is detected in the category settings, it will override the "Videos per page" video setting.

Hi Mike,

I just enabled Clubs and when adding a Video with a YouTube link, it doesn't seem to grab the Description from YT.

I tried adding a video in the main Video app to compare, and the same, the video appears with the thumbnail but without a description. Is that intentional? I'm sure it used to fetch the description as well as the title and thumbnail.

No biggie as the videos look nice and neat with no description but may be a bug for others?

Many thanks.

As in automatically grab the title and description like the IPB 3.4 version did with "quick add video"? If so, watch this space.

Have you had any customers buy this to sell video access and not just provide it?

None that I'm aware of and it's not something that has native support in the Videos app either sorry.

Hi, I wrote a script to migrate videos from vBulletin Addon Video-Directory Remixed.
I mangaged to import categories, videos, comments and tags, so far.
But I need help with the tags. You can see them on the video page but you can't search them.
I am sure this is because I just filled table core_tags and kept core_tags_cache and core_tags_perms untouched.
So my question is how to fill core_tags_cache and core_tags_cache. Is there a background routine / maintenance process I can call?

 But I am stil wondering about different record counts.

The counts will be a bit different because core_tags will have a row for each tag and the other tables will have a row for each content item (video).

I would of suggested using something like the "setTags" function from "system/Content/Item.php" and to loop through the videos database table. It handles all 3 tags tables for you. But if the search index rebuilt the cache and perms for you, then it should be fine.

  2. Quick add video support.
  3. Video.JS support for uploaded videos.
  4. Improved front end design new trending, followed, discover and featured tabs .Including pagination and sorting.
  5. RSS import support for videos.
  6. IP.Board 4.3.x compatibility update.

If you have any suggestions for future versions, please let me know.

v3.3.1 will fix several bugs from the new version except for the furl issue you had. Still working on that and shouldn't be too far behind.

I'm definitely better waiting for the next release then! My community would probably not be too happy with me, if we brought that issue back! Thanks again.

Thank you for this update! I have been waiting for RSS import. Now, how do I get a youtube channels rss feed to use with the RSS import feature? I can't seem to find an easy way of doing this on google. It seems youtube has removed rss functionality. 

I found this and it seems to be working:

@Mike John Thank you for the effort you put in and the respect you have for customers. Bought the app on your site, not here, but felt the need to say it here.

Thank you. ?

If you can just remind me in a few days, it shouldn't be much longer.

Yeah it seems there is still ways to get a feed through that method. Will see how that goes and if I need to, I can just expand the import code to support the Youtube API itself.

the 'trending' display appears to be sorted via the 'tid' not 'video_trending_views' ?

Can you point me to the code your talking about? The default sort for the "trending" tab should be.

            $table->sortBy        = 'video_trending_views';
            $table->sortDirection = 'desc';

seems to be a flaw with the sorting of the various tabs for the front index on version for 4.2

the 'trending' display appears to be sorted via the 'tid' not 'video_trending_views' ?

 

 

the below edit seems to fix this for both 4.2 and 4.3 versions

  //    $table->sortOptions   = array();
        $table->sortOptions = array( 'video_trending_views' );
        

how did this get thru pre-release checking?

Thank you, my apologies. Disabling the sort options was intended but obviously it's causing issues because the sort by is checked against the sort options array. My tested was done via the date the video was added, so never noticed the sort not being applied.

Logged this as a bug report and will be fixed next release.
