Do you actually answer to support requests?

Ok i see now i missed that you wanted it to a different email address, i have resend it please check now.

All good, sorted out. But, you should advise your clients: youtube api version 3 has a bug! It doesn’t trigger properly any URL! I know, I’ve tried and failed (3 different domains on both root and subfolders installs). Second point: looks like the right *.php version for having this script properly working is 5.6 (FastCGI Apache). I know, I’ve tried with 5.3 and 5.4 and failed (not tested with 5.5). Third point: disqus has a very own code which triggers NOT the shortname BUT the URL ID! So, those having issues with getting properly disqus platform below any video, open video.php and change the code between lines 85 and 103 with diqus code! It’s pretty much self explanatory. After that, you’ll get disqus properly set and visible without any hicks. You should also read on your account disqus dev page and add the bottom code onto the same file, video.php; at the bottom of disqus page you will see a line which has to added to your file in order to get properly the number of comments! I know, I’ve tried and worked.

Anyway, the script itself is very handy, fast and nice. Would be also useful to have some new templates based on it. Thumbs up for dev! Rated 5 stars.

Regards, Alex

Glad you got it sorted out now, i have not found any bugs related to the youtube v3 api but i will look into that, the disqus comment code is already included in the script you just have to create a new comment form on disqus and put the comments shortname in the site settings file and it will be activated, anyway thanks for your feedback and the 5 star rating!


Good script, only one suggestion – implement geo ip for $country_code.

I did it in the next way:

1) Downloaded GeoIP.dat here https://dev.maxmind.com/geoip/legacy/geolite/

2) Downloaded https://github.com/maxmind/geoip-api-php and uploaded files from ‘src’ code there into just created folder ‘geo-ip’ in the project

3) In siteconfig.php replaced code: $country_code = 'us'; to next code: try { include './geo-ip/geoip.inc'; $gi = geoip_open('GeoIP.dat', GEOIP_MEMORY_CACHE); $country = geoip_country_code_by_addr($gi, $_SERVER['REMOTE_ADDR']); geoip_close($gi); } catch (Exception $e) { $country = ''; } $country_code = 'us'; if (!empty($country)) { $country_code = $country; } Links:

Search count for results and main page is better make by PHP variable in siteconfig.php too to avoid code customization in the engine ...

The site is: http://www.video-search.pro/

And one more thing:
  • in file apis\youtube\search.php code of function ‘covtime’ better warp into try/catch http://clip2net.com/s/3ECviBg because if troubles with YouTube key or time date I got this error:

Fatal error: Uncaught exception ‘Exception’ with message ‘DateInterval::__construct(): Unknown or bad format ()’ in /home/xx/video-search.pro/www/apis/youtube/search.php:4 Stack trace: #0 /home/xxx/video-search.pro/www/apis/youtube/search.php(4): DateInterval->__construct(’’) #1 /home/xxx/video-search.pro/www/apis/youtube/search.php(42): covtime(NULL) #2 /home/xxx/video-search.pro/www/includes/main.php(11): include(’/home/xxx/...’) #3 /home/xxx/video-search.pro/www/search.php(62): include(’/home/xxx/...’) #4 {main} thrown in /home/xxx/video-search.pro/www/apis/youtube/search.php on line 4

Hi, thanks for the feedback, i will try to make the geo ip locator as an option in the next update.

Hi, because you do not need an api key for Dailymotion.

realmag777 can you send me all your files from video-search.pro ? mail : flareagar@gmail.com

Hi, after i installed it’s error! you can try on magnetalk.com i don’t know why?

Hi, it seems your domain is not properly setup, you should ask your domain hosting about it; https://www.whatsmydns.net/#NS/www.magnetalk.com

Hi, i try installed on http://codetopus.com/video/

It’s error on search, watch, surprise and video. How to fix it?


I think its because you installed in a subfolder, then you would need to change a lot of files because the url path to images,scripts,css and so has been changed.

i recommend that if you do not want to install the script on a maindomain you can create a subdomain and install the script there, like this; videosearchxl.maindomain.com

Is there any way to stop displaying ads on videos? I don’t like displaying ads on videos. Displaying ads on videos is not good for cellphone.

Hi, you mean the ads from youtube? you could use adblocker for your web browser.

Hi, i have send you mail.

Hello i wanna buy script urgent please contact me this email djboys2050@gmail.com

Hi, you can buy the script right here, and you should not post your email here.

Looking very nice script but have been scared a bit for latest review about banning by Google. What restrictions exist?

Also 2 questions:

  • The data are saving in database or just displaying in the page? I prefer just to display them. Is this possible?
  • Do I need API key for all 3 providers?

Thank you

Hi, i do not know any restrictions, you do not need a database for saving any data, for youtube and vimeo you need a api key for dailymotion not.

Is there a way to block a certain page from appearing in the search results and blocking that page from visitors. I got a warning from Google violating their policy for displaying sexual contents!

Hi, please contact me on the item support page.

there is no any time duration in related videos! its very important for choice and play videos about long or small videos

Hello Is possible to see admin panel? Thanks

Ok,i see not have admin panel.Just tell me did this script i allowed for adsense and did google can ban site on search engine because is automated search method?

Hi, yes it uses a config file for the site settings, i can not say for adsense and google but you should check their policy for that.
