    AME - Auto Media Embedding

    Another Update...

    AME scans new and edited posts for pre-defined patterns of URLs (i.e. youtube's). If it finds a match, it swaps the url tag for an ame tag.
    When a post get parsed for bbcode and an ame tag is found, instead of hammering away at the post with umpteen bbcodes, AME quietly figures out which pre-defined embedding should be placed there and... viola', you have a pretty little embedded video.

    This is significantly faster, has much lower overhead and is much easier to manage than loads of bbcodes or a than scanning every single post as the user views it to see if there are any conversions that need to be made.

    Now for the bells and whistles

    AME:

    is lightweight as it does all of her chores without the overhead of having 1 bbcode per pattern or trying to parse a post every single time it gets displayed with a bunch of patterns. This radically reduces overhead and speeds up the processing. The only time ame will kick in is after creating a new post or after editing an existing one (or if an ame tag is found in a post)
    is extensible. She allows you to add, edit, delete, import and export patterns. That way you can decide which services to support, how they should look and then share them with others!
    can extract the title (requires your server to allow url wrappers with fetch_contents)
    can extract embed code from sites whose URLs do not contain sufficient information to embed the video
    can rebuild your old posts to convert your 'other' mediaish tags into URL tags.
    can rebuild your old posts to convert URL tags into ame tags where needed
    can convert her codes BACK to url codes so you're not stuffed with a bunch of dead tags if you uninstall!
    won't uglify your site by having videos appear in quotes, php, code or html blocks (blech!)
    can be globally disabled
    can be excluded from forums
    can exclude usergroups
    can be toggled on/off per post
    would cook dinner for you if she had arms
    can wrap the output in a 'container' with original URL
    has a super comprehensive admincp help system. Yes, I actually took the time to add all the info you need into vB's admincp help system. If you ask a silly question in this thread that is addressed in the help system, you will be taunted.
    is fully phrased
    has hooks around integral operations so you can extend it

    Add ons

    AME comes configured with YouTube, Myspacetv, Google Video, Bolt, iFilm, Yahoo, Dailymotion, Amazon and MetaCafe Support built in. Since the amount of providers are always changing and most sites will only need a particular amount, AME has been designed with an import and export system to allow members to easily share formats with one another. In fact, the second post of this thread is updated periodically to relflect those add ons. Currently there are over 12 more additional formats contributed by AME users.
