I would only say -- if you're serious about video counts, then disable Highslide. I know it sucks, but Highslide isn't very cooperative.
Maybe in the future I'll change the system to use another library. Or I'll just give up on that stupid slideshow and just use Highslide as it was used before the AeMe days.
As an easy alternative, i'm just gonna remove the line of code from the portal block instead of it always showing "Views: 0"

That should solve the problem for now, i don't see the point of removing highslide completely, too much work for such a small thing and i'm moving away from SMF by the end of the year anyway :P

Jooma in conjunction with another forum software is the future, with SMF there is too much bullshit involved and the shit is definitely going to hit the fan on a major scale eventually (we have seen signs of this already, it's just a matter of time before it goes downhill completely).

So i'd just like to take this opportunity to thank you for all your help and assistant over the last 8 months and to wish you luck on your future endeavors :)

I completely agree, except in two areas:
- SMF will become Open Source when SMF2 Gold is released. They said they would. We're trusting them to do it. In the current situation, SMF will die. If it goes open source, then it means others can take over, even if the project is dying.
- And there ARE people who are willing to take over and seriously make SMF a powerful solution again. Arantor and I are two of those. We're just waiting for SMF to be made open source. And then we'll have some fun!

Sounds good.

SMF is my favorite forum software by far, i don't even think the paid for solutions are as cool as it (and certainly not worth paying a 6 monthly fee for) so i hope they do make it open source and its future is secured, i may just come back to it after i've played around with phpbb3 :P

I can only agree... I'd rather use FluxBB or, forgive me, phpBB before being coerced into paying $150 (or more!!) for a software package that barely does better than SMF...

Well, phpBB3 really isn't worth much of your time. I like their main theme and it's a long-lived project so I respect them, but... Have fun with their plugin system...

Strictly speaking it is possible to write a fully licence compliant Joomla / SMF bridge. It's just a pain in the {insert bodily part here}, as JFusion found.

Hey, I'm using phpBB3 and I'm fully okay with the mod / plugin system. For  the version 4 they planned to make a better mod system, that should be much more easier, than the current one.

*And* there will be plenty of bridges available once SMF goes BSD, I'm sure.

@Nao - there's my $20 and worth every penny in fees to PayPal. Now to grab the commercial version and see if it fixes any of the problems we've got with 1.4  ^_^

I hope it does, but I doubt v2.x would fix any bugs within v1.4!

It's always worth a try... but no, didn't fix. I'll post in the support thread when I get to work tomorrow (as that's where I've got a screenshot to show one of the problems.)

Hello, I have just installed aeva on my boards and I cannot get the auto-embed feature to work.  Probably something I am doing or not doing, but still some help would be appreciated..
Thanks

I do not believe Nao is providing support for AeMe 1.4 or Aeva Lite at this time, especially not in a thread with "No support!" in the thread's title...

I currently have SMF Media Gallery and Aeva ~ Auto-Embed Video & Audio on my site. I really like both and was just doing a check for mod updates and noticed that it appears AEVA Media has replaced SMF Media Gallery, awhile ago it seems.  <_<

I'm definitely going to be grabbing the commercial version (worth every single cent). But I just want to make sure that I won't lose any gallery data when I do the change over. I'm also assuming this still supports the external media embedding for stuff like youtube.

Thanks sorry for complete noob questions.  I wasn't sure if I should be asking here or on the SMF forums.  :^^;:

@Ransim - Just follow the instructions in AeMe and you'll be fine. Uninstall both SMG and the embedder, then install AeMe. No data lost, just remember to (re)set the permissions profiles after the install so your members can post media  ^_^ (and yes, wrong place to post support questions)
