Title: YouTube BBC Tag (XHTML Compliant)
Post by: Daniel Marquard on January 03, 2007, 09:18:19 AM
Link to Mod (http://custom.simplemachines.org/mods/index.php?mod=595)

Overview

This mod allows a poster the option to embed a YouTube video in a post through the use of the [youtube=425,350][/youtube] BBC (bulletin board code) tags.  What makes this variation different from other YouTube BBC mods is that the code it uses is XHTML compliant, thus keeping with the forum's XHTML validity.

Its use is easy: simply plug the video ID (random jumble of letters and numbers) between the [youtube][youtube] tags.

Language Integration

To make the mod work with your language, simply open Modifications.*.php, where * is the language you wish to integrate the mod into, and add $txt['youtube'] = 'YouTube'; to its own line in the file.

Theme Integration

Theme integration for this mod is fairly straight forward.  Simply copy youtube.gif from the default theme's images directory into your custom theme's images directory.  If your custom theme happens to use its own Post.template.php, open that template file and find:

Code: [Select]
'flash' => array('code' => 'flash', 'before' => '[flash=200,200]', 'after' => '[/flash]', 'description' => $txt[433]),

Following that code, add:

Code: [Select]
'youtube' => array('code' => 'youtube', 'before' => '[youtube=425,350]', 'after' => '[/youtube]', 'description' => $txt['youtube']),

Compatibility

This mod is only compatible with SMF 1.1 and 1.1.1.  This mod will not be ported to work with any version bellow 1.1, as I only encourage the use of version 1.1 or above.

Package manager said it had installed but didnt seem to do anything, non of the files where changed..

Went in and did it manually and it seems to work ok

Glad you like it.  :)

Odd.  Are you using a custom theme or is that none of the files were changed whatsoever?

From what I could tell nothing had changed, it was showing as installed but wasn't working, so I ftp'd the files that needed changing, checked against the changes that should have happened, and nothing was there ??

I'm using SMF Default and Babylon, but even on the non scheme specific files nothing..

Could be pac-man playing up

Just out of curiosity, did you download the mod from the mod site itself or through the package browser in your forum?

Sorry, I'm not familiar with that.  Is it an FTP client?

Edit: Seems it is in fact an FTP client.  Well I've tried it on several various installations and it's worked for me.

Nope.  I highly recommend you upgrade to 1.1.1.  Once you upgrade and install my mod, please tell me know if the install works for you.  It's the wierdest thing that it will install for me, but not for Motorhead.

If you use the proper upgrade package, most of your mods will remain intact, if I remember correctly.

It may have been something playing up with the server when I did the mod, it's no big deal 10 minutes to install manually by editing the required files and uploading them...

Working a treat on my site..

I added this mod to my site, and it works fine for everyone, except for people using firefox. Though firefox 2 seems to have no problems with it.

Here is an example thread:

What changes should I make to the code to make it work for them?

Thanks,

The default <embed> code for YouTube videos, as posted on each video's YouTube page, is not XHTML compliant.  I took that code and revamped it to be XHTML compliant, apparently at the cost of browser compatibility.  I'm not aware of another way to format the code to be accepted in all borwsers and still retain its XHTML validity.  Any ideas are welcome for compatibility, but the goal here will still be to keep the code XHTML transitional.

Nice, I like it.  However, is there a way that we can tweak the code to make it default to 425,350 in the attributes?  I would like my users to simply be able to enter the tags and it automatically make it 425x350.  Something like:
Code: [Select]
[youtube]SVaQ3bkLC28[/youtube]I know that clicking the BBC button automatically places the attributes in the tag, but the majority of my users manually type the code.

There is a method of doing that; unfortunately, at the cost of the inability to define custom dimensions upon implementing the changes.

In Subs.php, find:
Code: [Select]
'content' => '<object type="application/x-shockwave-flash" width="$2" height="$3" data="http://www.youtube.com/v/$1"><param name="movie" value="http://www.youtube.com/v/$1"></param><param name="wmode" value="transparent"></param></object>',

...and replace with:
Code: [Select]
'content' => '<object type="application/x-shockwave-flash" width="425" height="350" data="http://www.youtube.com/v/$1"><param name="movie" value="http://www.youtube.com/v/$1"></param><param name="wmode" value="transparent"></param></object>',
In Post.template.php, find:
Code: [Select]
'youtube' => array('code' => 'youtube', 'before' => '[youtube=425,350]', 'after' => '[/youtube]', 'description' => $txt['youtube']),
...and replace with:
Code: [Select]
'youtube' => array('code' => 'youtube', 'before' => '[youtube]', 'after' => '[/youtube]', 'description' => $txt['youtube']),

Very nice mod.  I think it would be cool if when someone pushed the youtube button and a little popup came up that allowed them to either put the entire youtube url or just the youtube video code.

This would make it easier for those that are not the best at using BBC code.

Just a thought

Doesn't seem like a bad idea at all.  It will be considered if I ever release an update to this mod.  :)

Post by: Alexmosutheskypirate on January 06, 2007, 03:38:18 AM
yup..very nice..working perfectly..
the easyest way to do it...would be to tell the mod to actually read only the last 11 characters of...whatever you input..
as the youtube code is http blabla+11 characters..the last 11 characters...ae the important ones
this should be ...easy...shouldn't it ?

and it would still work if you input the 11 chracters..only..cause all of them would be the last 11 chars :D

thanks for the mod

saludos :D

As long you YouTube agrees to *never* change the number of characters in their video IDs, I see no wrong with implementing it in the next version.  Thanks for the idea.  :)

I really can't explain this.  Make sure you've cleared your cache?  No one else has reported the problem you're having with the mod, and on a clean install of 1.1.1, no less.

Try copying the youtube image to: /themes/your-theme/images/bbc

That worked for me

I like that idea.  But, instead of hardcoding a number of characters, I would just look for the equals sign and extract everything to the right of that sign.  Of course, I know squat about PHP coding and am only speaking from VB experience.

There has been one other reported instance of the language text appearing at the top of the forum; was that there before installing my mod?

Also, use [youtube=###,###]videoID[/youtube], with ###,### representing the dimensions of the embedded clip.

It's been discussed to trim all but the last ten characters contained within the [youtube][/youtube] tags.  This feature will be added to the next version.

I just installed it on my test forum v1.1.1 cause my users really want it.

First problem the .gif didn't load (pacman said a ok when installed).
Second, nothing appears on the screen although the space for the box appears. I have read every post here and tried all the given solutions.

Same results in Firefox v1.8.xx, (not everybody waqnts to run the 2.0 beta) IE and Opera.

No problem un-installing it though.

I know this has been rough for you, but something is seriously wrong.

Guess I'll have to wait for the update.

Thanks for the effort.

PS What we really need is a WYSIWYG editor like the high priced guys.

Firefox 2.0 is a final release, not beta.  You should consider upgrading.  The image should be copied to the "bbc" images folder of your custom theme.

So i uninstalled the mod and it still remained.
So i deleted the actual mod  - it remained

i reinstalled the mod hoping it would overwrite the previous one and now its added another load of code on the top. HELP please

Is there a reason why the param (http://www.w3schools.com/tags/tag_param.asp) element was used with end tags? I thought the param element was a self-closing empty tag.

I have written my XHTML compliant flash (youtube) code like this...

Code: [Select]

<object type="application/x-shockwave-flash" data="http://www.youtube.com/v/$1" width="425" height="350">
     <param name="movie" value="http://www.youtube.com/v/$1" />
     <param name="loop" value="false" />
     <param name="menu" value="false" />
     <param name="quality" value="high" />
     <param name="scale" value="noscale" />
     <param name="wmode" value="transparent" />
</object>


I like forward to the next version, and hope that it will recognize previous youtube BBC tags that still contain just the youtube video id.

It's the way I formatted it in order to include everything and still retain its XHTML validity.

After installing this mod to SMF1.1.1 and Tiny Portal 9.7, it place at the top of all pages this code.

$txt['youtube'] = 'YouTube'; $txt['youtube'] = 'YouTube';

my site is here;

http://manichols7.com/forum/index.php

I uninstalled it but it left that code, so I reinstalled it to learned what files it modified and it place a second code there.  I have uninstalled it again.  Can you please tell me how to removed that code?

Ok, I went back a little and found the problem, I went to my form root and found the language file and deleted the code and it is now removed from my front page.

I just deleted the youtube and nothing else.  Thank you for trying to give us a neat mod and I will try it again when you have improved it.  Good luck,
Marian

There's nothing I can improve upon as far as the language file.  All you had to do was post the contents of Modifications.english.php and I could've fixed it for you.

I've installed the mod today but I have some problems.

I uploaded the youtube.gif to my theme bcc dir and it works. I edited Modifications.english.php and Post.template.php of my theme (I use pdx-dk06).
When I type [youtube]SPE8vL5hlFA[/youtube], the post shows the code...
When I use the bcc button and I paste the yt code (like [youtube=425,350]SPE8vL5hlFA[/youtube]), I can't post because I get the error "The message body was left empty."
So if I add some words before or after the bcc code everything works and I see the video in the post..

It seems crazy  :D
What's happening?

I believe yo uhave to have the width/height parameters in there.  As for it saying the body was left empty, I get the same error message if all I put in there is the youtube code.  But, I normally type something in there along with the code anyways, so that doesn't bother me any.

You have to type something in the body of the message even though you have that YouTube code, it doesn't recognize that as text.

Type the word 'test' for example, then use your YouTube code   :)

Got me there   ???   Something with the mod I guess.  Usually people on my forum will make a short intro before using the the code, e.g. Here's a funny bicycle accident, then use the mod to insert the YouTube value.

This is very strange,  because I did not modify any code, and yet am no longer receiving the empty message body error notification. I forget if I changed something in the admin console, perhaps that could be it. Could anyone shed some insight into this issue? Because apparently I wasn't the only one who had this problem though it seems to have gone away, for now.

Hello, I've just installed this mod on my test forum (1.1.1 with WoW dk theme) and I can get the button to show and that's about it. The code isn't working and I'm not sure what else I should edit.
I used the code as you said to (only using the end of URL).

Any help appreciated.

Edit:
Got it to work, yay!
I just manually edited the subs file. In fact, I had to manuallly edit everything including uploading the image(which didn't exist anywhere in my forum files)...nothing was modified with the install at all.

At least now I can stop pulling my hair out trying to find out what I did wrong. I hope that eventually it's fixed so that we can actually install it with the package manager. ::)

I installed it with the package manager without any problems whatsoever!!!

Thanks for the reply, I'm glad it works for some people.

I'm using version 1.1.1 with the default theme and the only mods I have are:
1.    SMF 1.1.1 Update Package 1.1.1      
2.    MessagePreviewOnHover    1.4    
3.    YouTube BBC Tag (XHTML Compliant) 1.0    
4.    Users Online Today Mod    1.3.1

I've installed it, tried to uninstall it but it gives errors and says it still wants to install it even though it's already installed. I deleted it, re downloaded it and re installed it with the same results. When I try to use it, it just shows the [youtube] tags. I don't know what else I can do!

Edit: Here's the error message when I try to uninstall it:

I read this whole thread and I'm not the only one having this problem. There are several people that have posted the same problem that I'm having, at least two of them chose to install manually because they could not get it to install with the package manager. I have tried it on 2 different forums (both 1.1.1 with default (core) theme] with the exact same results! So even though I have always been able to install mods with the package manager, it's my forums problems that I can't install this one!!!!!!

I uploaded the package from the SMF Mods page. I deleted the file from my computer the first time and uploaded it again just in case the original one had gotten corrupted.

I also tried to figure out how to do it manually but I'm not sure I did it right. If you could give me a list of files to FTP and what files/folders to send them to, that might solve my problem.

I also tried installing it in a third forum I have, also 1.1.1 default (core) theme, with the exact same results. In all three cases I can't even uninstall the mod, it gives this error:

I uploaded the package from the SMF Mods page. I deleted the file from my computer the first time and uploaded it again just in case the original one had gotten corrupted.

I also tried to figure out how to do it manually but I'm not sure I did it right. If you could give me a list of files to FTP and what files/folders to send them to, that might solve my problem.

I also tried installing it in a third forum I have, also 1.1.1 default (core) theme, with the exact same results. In all three cases I can't even uninstall the mod, it gives this error:

I honestly can't explain why this is happening to you (and maybe one or two others).  Extract the files to your computer and make changes based on the contents of the imstallation XML file.

Edit: I don't think I understand how to do that. It makes no sense to me. I open the XML file and it's a bunch of code. What am I supposed to do with that?

I tried that but it still doesn't work.  :'(

It would have no reason not to work if you're modifying the code manually, unless the code you're searching for does not exist.

Thanks for taking the time to try and help but this is wayyyyyyyyyyyyyyy above my head. I can upload files via FTP and even change a line or two of code but I have no idea as to what I have to do to make this work. I'll just have to live without it.

Also had problems installing the mod and getting it to work. Uninstall gave the error mentioned above.

Went ahead and changed the two files (subs.php and post.template.php) by hand, uploaded them and the mod was working like a charm.

There are some issues with installing, maybe it has something to do with languages/themes (my guess), but manual install should be no problem.

The end of address  ;)

I was struggling to get this to work until I saw this post, I'm used to embedding the whole code that You Tube provide for websites etc. Might I suggest that this quote be placed within the download page so we do not need to search through this entire thread before we find this.

I'm not complaining as this is a fantastic mod and I am really pleased to find it and know that once my members get used to it they will love it.

I installed though pac-man and it worked 1st time no problems whatsoever. Now just going to try it with the new theme (Millenium) we are hoping to use for the forum

Thanks for trying to help but unlike you folks, I'm not a coding pro, in fact I have zero knowledge of XHTML. I unzip the package and all I get are these three files:

youtube.gif

package-info XhtML file

yt bbc xhtml 1.0


I uploaded the youtube.gif to the images folder of my default theme but what in the heck am I supposed to do with the other two files? I opened them to find a bunch of code and some explanations that meant nothing to me. What am I supposed to change in subs.php and post.template.php??

I have never had so much trouble trying to install a mod. I wish I just had a list of the modified files that I could upload and write over the present ones. That would be soooo much easier than me trying to decipher XHTML codes.

Thanks again to those who have tried to help this old fart.

catfished, I'm gonna try to help you out.  If you still can't get this to work, you can send me the necessary files and I will mod them for you and send them back.  PLEASE, remember to make a backup of these files before yo modify them in anyway.

In yourforum/sources/Subs.php

Find This
Code: [Select]
array(
'tag' => 'hr',
'type' => 'closed',
'content' => '<hr />',
'block_level' => true,
),

And add this after it
Code: [Select]
array(
'tag' => 'youtube',
'type' => 'unparsed_commas_content',
'test' => '\d+,\d+\]',
'content' => '<object type="application/x-shockwave-flash" width="$2" height="$3" data="http://www.youtube.com/v/$1"><param name="movie" value="http://www.youtube.com/v/$1"></param><param name="wmode" value="transparent"></param></object>',
'validate' => create_function('&$tag, &$data, $disabled', '
if (isset($disabled[\'url\']))
$tag[\'content\'] = \'$1\';'),
'disabled_content' => '<a href="$1" target="_blank">$1</a>',
),

in yourforum/themes/yourtheme/Post.template.php

Find This
Code: [Select]
'flash' => array('code' => 'flash', 'before' => '[flash=200,200]', 'after' => '[/flash]', 'description' => $txt[433]),

And add this after it
Code: [Select]
'youtube' => array('code' => 'youtube', 'before' => '[youtube=425,350]', 'after' => '[/youtube]', 'description' => $txt['youtube']),

In yourforum/themes/languages/Modifications.english.php

Find this (which will be at the very bottom of the document)
Code: [Select]
?>

And add this before it
Code: [Select]
$txt['youtube'] = 'YouTube';


That's it.  Now upload the modified files into their respective locations and you should be good to go.  I will say one more time, MAKE A BACKUP OF THE CURRENT FILES BEFORE TOUCHING THEM.  For instance, make a copy of Subs.php and name it something like Subs1.php.  That way, if something should happen during the modification process, you can rename the Subs1.php to Subs.php and be right back where you were before you tried modifying the files. ;)

I could, but if you have other mods installed that I don't or if I have mods installed that you don't, it could mess things up pretty good.  Can you give us a test account on one of your boards to see exactly what it is doing?  Are any of the files failing when you try to install it through the package manager?  Is it saying installed successfully, but you are unable to see any changes in your forums?

Thank you very much for taking the time to try and help. Unfortunately, I'm having nothing but trouble with this mod. I have spent many hours trying to solve it but to no avail.  :'(

For starters, there is definitely no such code as this in my Subs1.php:
Code: [Select]
array(
'tag' => 'hr',
'type' => 'closed',
'content' => '<hr />',
'block_level' => true,
),

I spent quite awhile searching for it, line by line and it's definitely not there, yet my forums work just fine without it. ???

catfished, that is the code to insert a horizontal rule in your post.  Seems like it should be there.  Strange.  You are on 1.1.1, right?  If so, could you post up the code from or attach your Subs.php?  I'd like to take a look at that.

If your filename is Subs1.php, then that's why the mod wouldn't install.  Not sure how it managed to become that either.

Search for 'tag' => 'hr', in Subs.php and then add my code below the array.

I attached a copy of one of my forum's Subs.php
From what I know and can tell, it doesn't really matter where the code is placed in that file, as long as it falls with all the other arrays.  So...

Find this (on row 1201):
Code: [Select]
array(
'tag' => 'center',
'before' => '<div align="center">',
'after' => '</div>',
'block_level' => true,
),

and add this after it:
Code: [Select]
array(
'tag' => 'youtube',
'type' => 'unparsed_commas_content',
'test' => '\d+,\d+\]',
'content' => '<object type="application/x-shockwave-flash" width="$2" height="$3" data="http://www.youtube.com/v/$1"><param name="movie" value="http://www.youtube.com/v/$1"></param><param name="wmode" value="transparent"></param></object>',

if (isset($disabled[\'url\']))
$tag[\'content\'] = \'$1\';'),
'disabled_content' => '<a href="$1" target="_blank">$1</a>',
),

Of course, the other modifications that I posted will have to be applied to their respective files.

Well thanks but as soon as I added that code, it crashed the forum with an error:

Parse error: syntax error, unexpected ',' in /home/norcal/public_html/forum/Sources/Subs.php on line 1215

I simply replaced the edited file with the original to get the forum back but I'm about at the end of my rope here. I'm convinced that this mod is not going to work on any of my forums!!

 Well this is the final straw! :'( I really thought I'd discovered the problem when I realized there were Subs.php and Subs.php~ files as well as Post.template.php and Post.template.php~ etc. The ones with the ~ were dated the day I originally installed the mod via the Package Manager. I checked all three files and found that they did not have the changes so I made them just as you instructed and renamed them without the ~. I then checked to see if my forum still worked and it was working fine. I anxiously tried the youtube mod and guess what: It still does nothing!!!! That's it!! The end!!! There is no way that this mod can ever be installed on any of my SMF forums.

LOL, I'm sorry to hear that; it's quite unfortunate that my mod doesn't work on your website.  It's one thing if your forum is having trouble installing a mod through the package manager.  It certainly is a very different problem if the additions my mod needs to make to files fail, simply because the search code (apparently) does not exist.

I wish I could help you further, but no one seems to have the problem you're having.  Everyone that has had difficulty installing my mod through their package manager experienced no problems at all with installing it manually.

Well if I had remembered about using [youtube=425,350][/youtube] as suggested by matjazz (http://www.simplemachines.org/community/index.php?topic=139271.msg890923#msg890923)
 instead of just [youtube][/youtube] tags that your mod instructs us to do, I wouldn't have had to make my previous post. I remembered reading that earlier in this thread so I tried it and it finally works.

I'm glad you got it working, though I can't fathom how you got the mod to work when you had a parse error in Subs.php.

I posted earlier that I found two Subs.php files one with a ~ after it. I renamed the one with the ~ and did the same with Post.template.php~ and Modifications.english.php~. I then added the codes for the mod to those files.

Guess what!!! I just found out it only works with Firefox!!!  In IE7 it just shows a box with a redX:
(https://www.simplemachines.org/community/proxy.php?request=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.sabretalk.com%2Fyt.gif&hash=8bf5983f27c72fe48fcc25f132d35028)
Below is the same tag posted in Firefox:

Now I'm totally confused. It was a heck of a lot less hassle to convert three IPB forums over to SMF a couple of years ago than making this mod work correctly!!!!!!!!

Update: I posted my problem on a geek forum and about 40% of IE7 users were seeing red X's. The fix is to install flash since IE7 evidently does not have it installed when you download it. Below are my comments on the geek forum.

Thanks everyone, I installed Flash Player and now it works but I'm going to get a lot of people saying they can't see the vids due to IE7 crap. I don't see why they can't have Flash installed out of the box since Flash is so popular. I hate %$#$# IE7 crapola!!!!

I've tested it out on many new versions of major browsers; all worked clawlessly.  The idea of reinstalling flash to IE7 seems correct to me.

Was it only the Flash with my embed code that returned a red 'X', or was it all Flash applets?

Language Integration

To make the mod work with your language, simple open Modifications.*.php, where * is the language you wish to integrate the mod into, and add $txt['youtube'] = 'YouTube'; to its own line in the file.

I use classic and it has no modifications.english.php file. And it's not working on the forum.

I have the .gif and I did edit the post template. There must be something I need to do in another file. Can you tell me what that might be?

Hi, does it works with 1.1.2?

Thanks

Works for me. I use the Black Rain theme so I had to modify the youtube.gif with a white background. Otherwise it looked weird. Steal it if someone needs it...

My mod should make changes to only the default theme's Modifications.english.php file.  As long as your custom theme lacks this file, it should function as intended.

I'll try again. I kept getting a blank screen. By the way, the files are .wmv files. Do these work with the youtube tags? And I have to put in http:// because the file is not located on the same host file system.

Uh, if the movie file is hosted on YouTube, it shouldn't matter.  Just in case you don't know, you have to upload the video to YouTube first before embedding it in the post.

Thank you Marlon. THere is actually more about you tube than I realized. I guess I need to tackle that part first.

By the way, you were very polite in your answer. It's appreciated.
Title: Re: YouTube BBC Tag (XHTML Compliant)
Post by: DreamSinger on February 14, 2007, 09:06:33 PM
Hi, first thank you for this mod. I'm really excited about its possibilities.

I installed it through smf package manager, and it seems to work okay in IE7, although I did notice when loading my pages I see the $txt['youtube'] = 'YouTube'; text in the upper left hand corner. But my background is black, so the text gets hidden as soon as the color loads.

In Firefox, of which I have the latest edition, for some reason the video freezes. It appears, but you can't click on it to make it play.

My theme apparently doesn't have the post.template.php file, only my default theme does.

Any help in this would be greated appreciated. I've read through this entire thread, and my head is spinning, but I do want to understand what I can do to make this work.

Also, I can't preview the post in either browsers, but I can save it, and then the video will appear. When I try to preview it just goes into "fetching" mode, and the bar at the bottom of my screen says "Done", but nothing else happens.

Thank you for your help!

[EDIT] I took down the attachment for the modifications.english.php, because I finally got it working. Two files were overwritten correctly, I think, but the modifications file just needed to have the code placed before the closure and not after. That took care of the code at the top of the page plus my Preview function started working again (after I had discovered that it didn't work for the video post or my regular posts before)

But it still doesn't work in my Firefox brower and in IE7, I need to click on the arrow twice to get it to work, and when I do it opens a new window to the YouTube site, as well as loads it in my post.

Marlon, I went looking through my files and I found quite a few files that have been renamed with a ~at the end. Not only the files that were supposed to be modified but others i wouldn't have thought would have been affected.

In the default/languages folder there are duplicate files and the ~ on one of each duplicate for modsettings.english.php, manageboards.english.php, login.spanish.php, login.german.php,  login.english.php, login.dutch.php, index.spanish.php, index.german.php, index.english.php, index.dutch.php, errors.spanish.php, errors.german.php, errors.english.php, errors.dutch.php.

In the sources folder there's a bunch more.

Are these duplicates with the ~ ? Can they be deleted or what do I do with them?

Okay, thanks.

Could you, please, tell me why it still won't work in my Firefox brower though? It's like the screen is frozen and I can't click the arrow. In IE7, it works only if I click the arrow twice, and then it, also, opens a new window to the YouTube site, itself, in addition to playing in the post.

Here's the url, http://keepingthedream.net/index.php?topic=65.0 (http://keepingthedream.net/index.php?topic=65.0)  if you or anyone else would like to look at it through the different browers.

I have the latest version of Firefox and IE7.

Any help in this would be greatly appreciated.

Okay, FINALLY, I understand. This is what happens when you're on the lower end of the learning curve.

I confused update with upgrade. I checked my Firefox and it did say I had the latest updates. But that's different from upgrades.

So for all you other newbies, to have this mod work in Firefox, make sure you go to the Firefox website and upgrade to the newest version of Firefox. It has to be a 2.0 version, and not just the latest updates for 1.whatever.   ::)

Thanks for a great mod.  :)

At the time of sending the message, it leaves a warning to me saying that I must nevertheless write something but this the code of youtube.

To the flank of the code I write a “point”, that if it sends it and it leaves the message the video with the point to the flank.

If they want they test.

It's not working in MY mozilla. But it is working fine in Firefox. I'll check opera shortly.

I have my mozilla configured to act like Safari. That way I can troubleshoot mac issues better. It's been right on so far but it's not a safari.

First, you must use the R-ayk8xz5_A for that particular video, because that's the video ID, not the URL.  Second, the mod doesn't appear to be installed properly.

I was wondering if there was a timeframe for a compatible version to be released?

Also, I was wondering why this would happen even though I copied the youtube.gif file into all theme directories:

Your tags are formatted properly and working. I even copied one to my own forum which has the mod installed and working and it played fine.

I noticed that you aren't using the default core theme, I can only assume that this is the problem.

If you installed the mod with package manager on smf then it will only be installed to the default core theme. You will have to extract the package contents and manually edit and place the code for the mod into the relevant files for your theme.

When you create a new topic, do you see the YouTube button?  It may not be installed properly.

The YouTube code itself works with any theme.  The only possible theme modification would be to Post.template.php, should your custom theme have it.

Yes, it works with new version, but there are some people who don't use new broswser. What we can do for them?

Encourage them to upgrade to a newer and more stable version of their browser.

If Windows 95 can run Firefox's latest release, I'd imagine any other operating system could do the same.

I'm not sure where to start.  Try making the file changes manually.

Not everyone is a system administrator, I mean there are a lot of people who uses internet from work or internet point.

That's true.  It's been confirmed, even before I released the mod, that the valid XHTML code WILL NOT function correctly in older versions of popular browsers.  As stated earlier, the code used to embed the videos in posts WILL NOT be changed in any future release of this mod unless someone can brainstorm a way to embed the video into a post and still retain the page's XHTML validity.

I have installed this on my test forums (1.1.2), and while it the video works fine, I noticed that it changed the font settings of the forums somehow (could be my browser), and that there is some text at the top of the page that states $txt['youtube'] = 'YouTube';

Can anyone help with this?  Here is the URL of my test forums.

I can't explain why quick reply is missing.  Try checking your profile options and the theme's default settings.  Also, would you mind either posting the contents of or uploading your Modifications.english.php?

Hello,

I just installed the latest version of this mod from SMF's web site. I am currently running SMF v1.1.2 and my browser is Firefox 2.0. The mod is not working on my web site. It is a fresh install of the board, no added templates, mods, nothing else. Once I click on the BBC icon and paste a video code inbetween the tags, it will just paste that code as regular text in the forum. Anyone know what gives?

Thanks,

Richard

Ok fixed the Quick Reply thing, that was a setup issue.  The font issue seems to be an issue with IE, Firefox doesn't seem to have any problems.  I've uploaded the Modifications.english.php file.

Absolutely.  8)

Though I do recommend that you uninstall the mod before upgrading and then reinstall it once your upgrade is complete.  This rule won't apply to you if you use the package manager to upgrade rather than the full upgrade.  It's completely up to you.  :)

Disregard that message for now.  Log into your SFTP server and CHMOD all affected files to 777.  Once you've done that, then apply the mod.  Let me know if you're still having problems.

I suggest you use Daniel15's package parser (http://60.241.80.44/smf/package.php) to display which files need to be made writable.  If that doesn't work, you'll have to make the changes manually, I'm afraid.

Move the youtube.gif file from the default theme directory to your custom theme's BBC images directory.

Works great! Though I was wondering if there's a way to make the size defaul. Do we always have to specify the size? 425,350? Just typing the tags without the size does not work.

Seem to have a similar problem.

Installed the mod, but it won't show a thing, not even a white box (tested IE7 and Firefox (latest version).

It doesn't produce the <embed> code, could that be a problem?

For a sample:
http://www.fencecheck.com/forums/index.php/topic,8550.msg132092.html#msg132092

(first video is entered manual with the Flash BBC button, second (not visible) is entered with the YouTube BBC button)

My hosting is dreamhost, this hosting allow me to put with some code a flash video in my site. The code is this:

Code: [Select]
<script type="text/javascript" src="https://media.dreamhost.com/ufo.js"></script>
<p id="sample.flv"><a href="http://www.macromedia.com/go/getflashplayer">Get the Flash Player</a> to see this player.</p>
 
<script type="text/javascript">
  var FO = { movie:"https://media.dreamhost.com/mediaplayer.swf",width:"320",height:"240",majorversion:"7",build:"0",bgcolor:"#FFFFFF",
             flashvars:"file=https://media.dreamhost.com/sample.flv&amp;showdigits=true&amp;autostart=false" };
UFO.create(FO,"sample.flv");
</script>

There is any way to make the same of your mod youtube with this features? what i have to change?

Thank you!

Dreamhost doesn't allow you to install mods on your forum...?  I have some news for you regarding Dreamhost: run...no really, find a new host.

Of course it would.  And that would be great...if you wanted to display the YouTube video page in its entirety within the post.

Why would it be?  YouTube themselves provide any user with the code to embed their videos into remote webpages.

Hi... this is a great mod... I've installed it on some SMF forums and works great...

The only thing that could be changed is:

Let the option for entering the last 10 characters that identify the video or the whole youtube url... with some php you can check if there's the whole url or only the last 10 characters... something like this...

Code: [Select]
$arrContent = $1;
if ( strchr($arrContent, 'http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=') == true) {
  $arrRetVal = explode('http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=' $arrContent, 2);
  $videoID = $arrRetVal[1];
} else {
  $videoID = $arrContent;
}

Lately instead of $1 it should say

Code: [Select]
'content' => '<object type="application/x-shockwave-flash" width="$2" height="$3" data="http://www.youtube.com/v/$videoID"><param name="movie" value="http://www.youtube.com/v/$videoID"></param><param name=wmode" value="transparent"></param></object>',
The problem is i don't where to put the first code shown for making it work with either the last ten characters that identify the video or the whole youtube url...

Hoping for some help...

Greetings from Chile
MrAnderson

PD. I'm not good at coding so the first php code may be improved.

I installed the mod and it works great.  the only problem I see is the button shows up as text.  I have already copied the you tube gif.  to my dilber mc theme images.  what could be the problem.  everything else works good.  Great mod by the way.   I am using smf 1.1.2



Edit:  I fixed it . I had uploaded the you tube gif.  in the images  not the images/bbc

I've fixed part of the code for making easier the use of the tag... with this modification you can use [youtube=425,350] or just [youtube]

this part of the code
Code: [Select]
            <add><![CDATA[
            array(
                'tag' => 'youtube',
                'type' => 'unparsed_commas_content',
                'test' => '\d+,\d+\]',
                'content' => '<object type="application/x-shockwave-flash" width="$2" height="$3" data="http://www.youtube.com/v/$1"><param name="movie" value="http://www.youtube.com/v/$1"></param><param name="wmode" value="transparent"></param></object>',
                'validate' => create_function('&$tag, &$data, $disabled', '
                    if (isset($disabled[\'url\']))
                        $tag[\'content\'] = \'$1\';'),
                'disabled_content' => '<a href="$1" target="_blank">$1</a>',
            ),
]]></add>

Must be replaced by
Code: [Select]
            <add><![CDATA[
            array(
                'tag' => 'youtube',
                'type' => 'unparsed_commas_content',
                'test' => '\d+,\d+\]',
                'content' => '<object type="application/x-shockwave-flash" width="$2" height="$3" data="http://www.youtube.com/v/$1"><param name="movie" value="http://www.youtube.com/v/$1"></param><param name="wmode" value="transparent"></param></object>',
                'validate' => create_function('&$tag, &$data, $disabled', '
                    if (isset($disabled[\'url\']))
                        $tag[\'content\'] = \'$1\';'),
                'disabled_content' => '<a href="$1" target="_blank">$1</a>',
            ),
            array(
                'tag' => 'youtube',
                'type' => 'unparsed_content',
                'content' => '<object type="application/x-shockwave-flash" width="425" height="350" data="http://www.youtube.com/v/$1"><param name="movie" value="http://www.youtube.com/v/$1"></param><param name="wmode" value="transparent"></param></object>',
                'validate' => create_function('&$tag, &$data, $disabled', '
                    if (isset($disabled[\'url\']))
                        $tag[\'content\'] = \'$1\';'),
                'disabled_content' => '<a href="$1" target="_blank">$1</a>',
            ),
]]></add>

This makes the tag work in one or another form... I'm still looking for making the content inside the tag work with either the long url provided by YouTube or just the 10 characters code that identify the video...

As stated in previous posts, the code I use to embed YouTube videos into posts is different from the code YouTube provides in that my version is XHTML compliant.  The code used to embed these videos will remain the same.  This mod has in fact been tested with all newer versions of most major browsers.

Regarding that problem, Kindred, I've also noticed that issue on other computers with both same and different browser versions than mine.  For some reason, browsers don't like the position of the video, as SMF puts it within a div.  I'll have to look further into it.

i'm wondering how i might be able to install this mod without having to use the package installation tool?  the problem is that i cannot get the package installation tool to work properly.  i'd need an FTP account with root access on a remote Debian server, and i am not willing to do that just so i can install packages easier. 

so, from un-gzipping the mod, what can i do from a command line to install this in a 1.1.x SMF installation??

thanks!

Post by: Kindred on April 20, 2007, 05:24:21 PM
tethead,

I don't mean to be mean, but if you plan to run a forum with anything other than the default theme, you will have to learn how to read the mod package files and apply the mod into different themes. Most mods will only install on the default theme.

In addition, if you have to manually apply all of your mods due to a lack of FTP, then you REALLY need to learn it.  the instructions are all there in the XML file within the mod package. it tells you search for "X" code...   either add before, add after or replace, based on what the XML indicates.

ok, i figured it out, and it actually worked!  awesome mod, thanks!

the hardest part was figured out the youtube.gif goes into the ../bbc/ folder within the theme's images, cause i just couldn't figure out where that had to be.  works like a charm on Safari, Firefox, and Camino as far as i can tell, and i think the IE users would've commented by now if it weren't working there.  not that i'd care what happens to IE users anyway...  8)

If you actually took the initiative to read back several pages, you'd find that your request was never ignored.  I mentioned that I would add that in the next version of my mod.

Well, in that case, my apologies.  I didn't see that (apparently no one else did, either).  My bad.

Excellent mod!
No problems till now.
But today some members (not all) made complaints that they can not watch the youtube videos. They can only see the first image with the arrow (play).
Any help?

ok, i'm having same problem with firefox 1.x (i havent tested with 2 yet). in the subs.php file i changed the line to:

Code: [Select]
'content' => '<object width="$2" height="$3"><param name="movie" value="http://www.youtube.com/v/$1"></param><param name="wmode" value="transparent"></param><embed src="http://www.youtube.com/v/$1" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" wmode="transparent" width="$2" height="$3"></embed></object>',
which is the code used by youtube. it still doesn't work, for some reason it drops the closing </param> tags and i get this:

Code: [Select]
<object height="350" width="425"><param name="movie" value="http://www.youtube.com/v/xRwfojgoSAA"><param name="wmode" value="transparent"><embed src="http://www.youtube.com/v/xRwfojgoSAA" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" wmode="transparent" height="350" width="425"></object>
so maybe if this is solved then it will work on all browsers?

ok, i found a work around for me. that is to use this mod instead:

http://custom.simplemachines.org/mods/index.php?mod=390

and works ok now :)

Am I getting the tags wrong or something ?

If you're using the embed code that YouTube provides you, then yes, you've just broke your page's XHTML validity.

Hi!

I've been using this great mod for some time, now. But recently some of my board user have been complaining. Some couldn't hit the play button of the video... (well, they hit the button, but nothing happens). And some don't see the video at all. All of the page loads, but not the videos.

All worked fine until some time ago, but now it won't work. Since I haven't make any change in my board, anyone knows if something changed at YouTube?

Thanks in advance,

Tell the members that can't click the play button to upgrade their outdated browser installations.  Explain to the members that can't see the videos at all how to use the mod; that between the tags goes the video embed ID, NOT the video page's URL.

Post by: xung on June 15, 2007, 11:13:41 PM
Hi!
Thanks for the answer. I'll tell those who can't click the play button to upgrade.
Then, the other ones (at least one I personaly know) uses Opera, and all worked fine until some weeks ago. (I mean, he could see videos with no problem).
This particular one has no problem with videos he uploaded (he hasn't really uploaded any, I think). He has problems with videos other users upload and that work fine with both IE and Firefox to other users (me, for instance) and don't work with him.
He said the whole page loaded but the video didn't. Instead he had a blank space....

I don't know if the recent "OnMouseOver" changes youtube made has anything to do with this particular issue.

But, thanks, anyway. I guess I'll have to tell all my users to get a decent browser. :D

SMF 1.1.3 using Default theme

Downloaded the mod, uploaded with the package manager, test all passed, reported a good install, but nothing worked.  No new button either.  Checked my error log and all three files said permission denied.

Any help would be greatly appreciative..

Post by: Kindred on June 30, 2007, 01:57:38 AM
modifications.english.php would be in your Themes/default/languages directory

To install it on different themes, you need to check what files your theme has modified away from the default and then apply the mod manually.

Hey Jim,

I'm in the same situation...default theme and the package manager borked out on me when attempting to complete the install despite all tests showing as passed. Even uninstalling it showed a red box error warning of dire consequences. :(

I read the xml file for the mod from the package manager and manually did the adds.

Type in your website and see if yours is XHTML valid. Basically if it is then it increases the chance of your website being more compatible with all the browsers and it's nice to know your code is clean and correct.

Nice mod!&nbsp; My site and theme is heavily customized, so the installer didn't do didley for me.&nbsp; But I manually moded the 3 files and put the youtube.gif file in the correct place, and it works great!

I always hated the idea of asking visitors to leave my site to view a video.&nbsp; Nice Mod!&nbsp; I love it!

I installed correctly but it doesn't work. Because?
it is just the place where should appear the video, but doesn't appear
Title: Re: YouTube BBC Tag (XHTML Compliant)
Post by: Kindred on July 30, 2007, 02:03:45 PM
You need to provide a little more detail...

you installed correctly:
How do you know that you installed correctly?

it doesn't work:
HOW does it not work? Does it not show the youtube button on the post form?   Does it show the button, but nothing happens when you click it? Does it load the code, but no video is displayed?

Are you running this on the SMF default theme? If not, did you bother to read any of the previous pages of this thread (or any other mod thread) that indicate that you will have to manually install portions of this (or nearly any other mod) if you are not using the default theme?
Title: Re: YouTube BBC Tag (XHTML Compliant)
Post by: Haguen on July 30, 2007, 02:13:56 PM
I use the theme default and the standard language&nbsp; &nbsp;
&nbsp; &nbsp;
It happens like this: the option in the post appears normal and the tags also but the video doesn't appear, it is just his space in the post.

That way the guys could PM the URL for the vids they want posted and I can make sure I will not be ashamed or jailed for it's being on the site....

1- we apparently can not view that site without registering.

3- is the video allowed to be called externally? Some youtube users turn off external access

Hi Kindred, thanks for you reply. 

I was coming back on here to post something I just found out:

If you use Firefox (which I do) and you haven't upgraded to the new Firefox 2, the mod won't work for you. I just upgraded and it works perfectly.

Just go to www.Firefox.com for the link.


I don't know what it's like on IE.  I'm just going to check.... It's works well.  I have the IE7 which is the lastest one.


I hope this information helps some of you!

I know this probably has something to do with modifications.english.php but i don't have that file. i have settings.english.php

any help?

in modifications.english.php, move the ?> in that file to the end of the file...

as for the youtube button not showing up, are you uysing the default theme?  If not, you will have to manually apply the mod to your theme's post.template.php

Where else would that code be showing up since i don't have the above metioned file?

Give a look into themes >>default >>languages >>Modifications.(yourlanguage).php
You have it for sure (Modifications.english.php is always there).
As Kindred said, before "?>"(end of file), put:
Code: [Select]
$txt['youtube'] = 'YouTube';It doesn't matter about your actual used theme..the added strings are "recalled" from default theme folder.

Well, that's debatable.

The stray code at the top of the page is gone now.  :D

But I think the youtube website might be down. No videos show up on my site, including the videos that were in the main page (Joomla) but I can't get into youtube website either. I'll update if anything changes.

Are there directions on how to do a manual install to the template for the button?

UPDATE:
Yes, the video is showing now. Yay!

Still need the directions on manual install though.

I've installed the mod.  The bbc is enabled in Admin>Post & Topics.  The icon shows up for embedding the tag, but no video shows up.  No box.. nada.  I can, however, highlight an invisible box.  (The google embed mod works perfectly, btw.)

I've tested it in IE and Firefox.

Ok, eventually it seems to be all right, it's to easy to make mistakes.

Now, the only two things that you have to chek are:

/Sources/Subs.php

Code: [Select]
array(
'tag' => 'youtube',
'type' => 'unparsed_commas_content',
'test' => '\d+,\d+\]',
'content' => '<object type="application/x-shockwave-flash" width="$2" height="$3" data="http://www.youtube.com/v/$1"><param name="movie" value="http://www.youtube.com/v/$1"></param><param name="wmode" value="transparent"></param></object>',
'validate' => create_function('&$tag, &$data, $disabled', '
if (isset($disabled[\'url\']))
$tag[\'content\'] = \'$1\';'),
'disabled_content' => '<a href="$1" target="_blank">$1</a>',
),
array(
'tag' => 'hr',
'type' => 'closed',
'content' => '<hr />',
'block_level' => true,
),


And in Themes/default/languages/modifications.Yourlanguage.php:

Quote
$txt['youtube'] = 'YouTube';

Don't understand where is the issue..there's no opportunity to make mistakes.

Are you sure to have the block codes in Subs.php, post.template.php and the string in Modification.yourlanguage.php?
And: did you enable the bbc [youtube] from admin panel->post and topics->bulletin board code->youtube ?
Title: Re: YouTube BBC Tag (XHTML Compliant)
Post by: tatore on August 30, 2007, 02:17:18 PM
'Youtube' works, I've tested.
The path for the gif don't know why is where you said to have replaced it.
No answers to your questions, sorry.

Post by: malcolmlo on August 30, 2007, 02:30:48 PM
The thing is there were no directions on what modifications are being made in the MOD information. Only to add the line to post.template.php and the language one. Nothing about subs. Ill check the language one now, but i already did the post.template.php one manually.

Post by: tatore on August 30, 2007, 02:38:05 PM
..so you didn't install it via pakage manager?
Why didn't you try?
Do you have a customized post.template?
Try to install it as I've suggested.
Title: Re: YouTube BBC Tag (XHTML Compliant)
Post by: malcolmlo on August 30, 2007, 03:21:23 PM
Yes, I installed it using the package manager. thats why i dont know anything about which modifications to make manually, the package manager did it all. I just did the 2 extra steps (moved .gif and changed post.template.php
Title: Re: YouTube BBC Tag (XHTML Compliant)

I'm in the same boat as some above...   I installed the package and checked the mod in the english php and the correct code WAS added.   I don't have a custom post.template.php in my themes that i saw so I didn't need to change that... but it still doesn't work

Does it work with SMF 1.1.3?

I just wanted to post, and say THANK YOU for keeping this mod alive.  It's one of my favorites.  I use it on many of my forums, and only had trouble with install on one.  (It wasn't the mods fault)

So thank you!

This mod still has a long life too. :P I already updated it to the private beta by permission of Marlin. So once 2.0 goes public you will have it too. :)

Ok, eventually it seems to be all right, it's to easy to make mistakes.

Now, the only two things that you have to chek are:

/Sources/Subs.php


In attachment is my subs.php

and now it causes this errors

Hi,

Quick question: I'm running SMF 1.1.3, and this mod works great for me. Installed just fine with the Package Manager. Only, I want to do away with the '=425,350' in the opening tag. I followed the advice from earlier in the thread, and made the suggested edits to subs.php and post.template.php. And I get the following results:

[youtube=425,350]Q5im0Ssyyus[/youtube] - works fine
[youtube=213,175]Q5im0Ssyyus[/youtube] - works fine (shows correctly at 425x350)
[youtube]Q5im0Ssyyus[/youtube] - doesn't work

It seems that it works great, it shows the video at 425x350 if I enter any two numbers for 'youtube=x,y' in the opening tag. I just can't seem to get it to work with a plain 'youtube' opener. A push in the right direction would be much appreciated. Thanks!

If you installed the mod via the package manager try posting your modifications.english.php here. The <php> </php> tags are probaly wrong.

Hi Everyone,

I've install this MOD and it works perfectly in the forum but, I allways get this error message in the Admin section :

8: Undefined index: youtube
Fichier: /homepages/34/**********/htdocs/testfofo/Themes/default/languages/Post.french.php (eval?)
Ligne: 781

And the worst is that I've checked the Post.french.php and it doesn't even have 781 lines. :-\
Can someone help me please with that one? :(

Thanks in advance. :)

Just put into the default /language/Madifications.french.php the string

Code: [Select]
$txt['youtube'] = 'YouTube'; before
Code: [Select]
?>Assuming that french is your forum's language :)

Hello :),

You assumed right! :D

Ok, for the code, I had already done that... here is the content of my Modifications.french.php  :

Code: [Select]
<?php
// Version: 1.1; Modifications
$txt['uot_users_online_today']='Utilisateurs loggu&eacute;s aujourd\'hui';
$txt['uot_yesterday']='Hier a';
$txt['uot_total']='Total';
$txt['uot_visible']='Visibles';
$txt['uot_hidden']='Cach&eacute;s';
$txt['youtube']='YouTube';
$txt['myvideo']='DailyMotion insert Number';
?>

But the error is, if you can see in my previous post, in the Post.french.php

Any clue?

Hi,

I've uninstall the MOD and reinstalled it and still get the same error message witch is :

Code: [Select]
8: Undefined index: youtube
Fichier: /homepages/34/**********/htdocs/testfofo/Themes/default/languages/Post.french.php (eval?)
Ligne: 781

And still, here is the content of my Modification.french.php  :

Code: [Select]
<?php
// Version: 1.1; Modifications
$txt['uot_users_online_today']='Utilisateurs loggu&eacute;s aujourd\'hui';
$txt['uot_yesterday']='Hier a';
$txt['uot_total']='Total';
$txt['uot_visible']='Visibles';
$txt['uot_hidden']='Cach&eacute;s';
$txt['youtube']='YouTube';
$txt['myvideo']='DailyMotion insert Number';
?>

The weird thing is that the error is suppose to come from the Post.french.php file, on line 781... but the file as only 185 lines. :(

Can someone please help me to solve that mystery?! :'(

Thanks in advance.
Title: Re: YouTube BBC Tag (XHTML Compliant)
Post by: karlbenson on September 18, 2007, 05:38:53 PM
At a guess its probably line 781 of Post.template.php
Title: Re: YouTube BBC Tag (XHTML Compliant)
Post by: AfroSamurai on September 18, 2007, 05:46:56 PM
Ah ha! I've notice something... when ever I put my mouse cursor over my BB-codes buttons in the writing interface, there is a little "alternative text" that appears. Like for instance, if I move my cursor over the Dailymotion button, it pops "Dailymotion" ... but when I put my cursor over the YouTube button, nothing appears. This would most probably come from there.

So, can someone tell me where to fix this?
Title: Re: YouTube BBC Tag (XHTML Compliant)
Post by: karlbenson on September 18, 2007, 05:48:38 PM
then its definately
Theme/{themename}/Post.template.php
Title: Re: YouTube BBC Tag (XHTML Compliant)
Post by: AfroSamurai on September 18, 2007, 06:49:27 PM
Well, actually that was not quit it... I manage to fix every thing!!! :D

Here's what I found and what I did to correct :

In the dm_bbc_xhtml_1.0.xml file, I found this :

Code: [Select]
<file name="$themedir/languages/Modifications.french.php" error="ignore">
                <operation error="skip">
                        <search position="end"></search>
                        <add><![CDATA[
$txt['dailymotion'] = 'DailyMotion';
]]></add>
                </operation>
        </file>

There was a error="ignore" and error="skip" to it...

So I've change to this :

Code: [Select]
<file name="$themedir/languages/Modifications.french.php">
                <operation>
                        <search position="end"></search>
                        <add><![CDATA[
$txt['dailymotion'] = 'DailyMotion';
]]></add>
                </operation>
        </file>

And re-zip it.

Then, in the yt_bbc_xhtml_1.0.xml file, these lines :

Code: [Select]
<file name="$themedir/languages/Modifications.french.php">
                <operation>
                        <search position="end"></search>
                        <add><![CDATA[
$txt['youtube'] = 'YouTube';
]]></add>
                </operation>
        </file>

were not there so I add them and re-zip it. Then, I did a reinstall of both MODs and everything is OK!!! No more errors!!!

Thanks for your help and I hope my solution is gonna help some people that encounter the same problem.

See ya!  8)
