Hello,

I'm the dude who got mislead by the gits at autoembed, they took some of the code from this site and re-licensed it as LGPL3 without authorisation, I didn't know that until I read a thread at wordpress.org.

Anyway I broke connection with those gits, remove autoembed link from my blog, removed two google project page that contained autoembed and removed autoembed from mybb.com repository to prevent any further spreading and without being asked to do so.  However I do feel responsible for not doing my own research, although I did notice the credit in stubs.php, didn't bother to google that up, how many would of bothered anyway?

Chris.

Yeah, I saw your post over there, too. Didn't have time to answer though (very busy.)

No problem, man. I appreciated that I was credited for my work, and reckoned that it was done without malicious intentions (even from the 'gits' you mention.)
I'd seen on your website that AutoEmbed was 'deprecated' so I didn't bother to contact you, and just got in touch with WordPress because they're so strict about the GPL and I'm pretty sure they feel horrible everytime something like that happens. I didn't bother to contact MyBB because they're LGPL but I'd appreciate if it's removed from their website, too. (If not already done.)
There are plenty of ways of automating embedding from multiple websites, Aeva's is just one of the more efficient.
I may relicense it in a few months (no promise but it's something I'd discussing on a private board), with a less restrictive license (BSD-like), so you'll be able to include the file if you're still into it.

Bonjour Nao.
Y a-t-il une possibilité de mettre les commentaires des photos dans la lightbox/highslide, en dessous dans le cadre blanc, à coté des flèches de navigations??
Peut-être cette option existe-t-elle déjà dans la version commerciale?  :mouais:
Un truc dans ce genre -là:

Uploaded with ImageShack.us

Is there a possibility to put comments in the lightbox images / highslide, below in the white box next to the navigation arrows??
Perhaps this option already exist in the retail version?
Something like that.


Merci !/Thanx!  :rolleyes:

Hmm, no.

I don't think there's a point...

If I remember correctly (or was it in my to-do-list?), AeMe indicates whether there are comments in the highslide version. If there are, you can click the item to go to the full page version.

Wordpress has oEmbed as well as embed handler built in since version 2.9, oEmbed fetches the html embed code and caches it to a blog post (or page), so it only fetches once unless the blog post is updated, so it practically efficient, the issues I have with oEmbed is that some providers return object code that is not xhtml1.1/html5 compliant and some return iframe which I really despise of, but the good thing is that wordpress has added filters to oEmbed which allows plugins author like myself to take advantage, and so I did.
I may relicense it in a few months (no promise but it's something I'd discussing on a private board), with a less restrictive license (BSD-like), so you'll be able to include the file if you're still into it.
Or use the file to extend WP embed site list without creating new shortcodes (bbcode or whatever it called on smf).  :gnehe:

I should remind those 'gits' that there are no such thing as borrowing without asking!   :mdr:

That's good to know...

Ah yes, I can understand that. The only use of iframe I currently allow in Aeva is Google Maps, because, well, it's pure Javascript stuff, rather than Flash...

Will there be any support for a failed 1.4 upgrade in the near future?
In a thread marked "no support"...? Probably not...

I can't remember where Nao posted that he's not providing support for the free version, either...

Free version works just fine for me, and it installs just fine on the majority of servers...

The reason as far as I can tell that support isn't being offered for the free version is that so many people just got crappy about demanding things without understanding the thousands of hours that went into building it.

Yeah, it's that complicated.

I have no problems with providing support (ESPECIALLY with fixing bugs), but I would appreciate that noobs are screened through more... 'understanding' support helpers before they come to me, because I'm just like that -- bitchy. I have absolutely no time to devote to tech support, and things that are already addressed elsewhere should stay out of my sight because they get me upset quickly.

As of right now, though, my project (of which you're aware) takes all of my time, and I could hardly devote time to tech support (outside the 2.x branch on the private boards), whatever the issue. I guess it depends on whether you find me on a lucky day ;)

Just as a matter of interest is there a general discussion board here. As most of the other boards are in French I am finding it hard to see  :sifflote: :niark: Just a place to chat about SMF in general

There are the official SMF Boards. Why would you want to talk here about SMF? Or did you mean a SMF aeva lite board?

Because I like posting here  :gnehe: Also just a general board not a support board, but I found the lounge here in French and I suppose that will do just fine  :cool:

Salut Nao,

Long time user, first time poster :gnehe: Been using SMG/AeMe since we migrated our forum from PHPBB to SMF (few years now), and really find it/them great pieces of work. You have my utmost respect, and sympathies for what has gone on elsewhere...  :sifflote:

Kind of a support thing, but not for AeMe; I'd really like to pay for AeMe 2.x (specifically to get some support help, but also because I think you're worth it) but when I click on the PayPal button, PP responds with "This recipient is currently unable to receive money."?!

DirtRider, no there's no English-speaking general board... I'd rather keep that away from me, as Noisen is really a French-speaking website and I only put the Aeva website in here because, well, Noisen was my main focus at the time and it felt natural... Plus, I wanted to internationalize the website, but in the end no English-speaking users come here to participate to Noisen, they only come for Aeva Media, so there's no point for me. Certainly now I'm not planning to enable users to discuss Aeva Media 1.x or Aeva Lite here. There's a topic for that at simplemachines.org (which I'm not reading), and that's where discussions should be posted.
Of course Aeva Media customers may discuss anything they like in the Aeva Media private boards. I'm not picky. :P

PantsManUK, thank you.
Yes, it's a known issues. My PayPal account is currently disabled, because I finally earned over 2500¤ on my account (in 10 years, lol), and that's a limit where you have to provide account confirmation, IDs and crap like that and start paying taxes. (Yay!)
Unfortunately, the confirmation process is stalled. I'm supposed to be confirming my credit card number but it won't show up in my logs. Grmpf...
Interestingly, RIGHT at the same time, for the first time in 12 years and for a totally different reason, my Kyodai Mahjongg order form is disabled, and people can no longer buy it either. So that means right now, I'm a web tramp.
