    Types of Forum Allowed on Cloud

    I wanted to try out vBulletin for a new forum so I was going to start with the cloud version. I wanted to better understand what types of websites you guys allow. For instance, the forum I was going to create, I wouldn't put it past users to post videos and posts similar to what's seen on reddit. What's allowed versus what's not when using cloud version, or either for that matter?

    I remember I had another customer who use vB primarily for images and videos and it was from his request that I created this video player mod for.

    I have a customer who uses my video mod and they said it works for them. But I don't know if they use vB primarily as a video platform or not.

    It's not practical to use any version of vBulletin primarily as a video platform. It's not designed for that purpose.

    For those who want to see how the Video Player mod works, watch the video screencast below:

    Yes you can as long as the last bullet point can be done for a max file size video you will allow to be uploaded.

    Yeah having a 15MB video is limiting. So I guess it's not practical for vBCloud customers to have this video player mod that I created for self-hosted vB. Thanks for the info.

    • Make sure your server has enough storage for uploaded videos.
    • Make sure your server has enough bandwidth for high data traffic due to large videos.
    • Make sure you can set Attachment Storage type to File System instead of Database.
    • Make sure your server is powerful enough to handle large video uploads.
    • Make sure that Max Post Size and PHP Maximum Upload Size values in PHP configuration are equal or greater than the Max File-size you set in the MP4 extension. Ask your host if you need help changing the PHP configuration.
    AND~ very interesting too Glenn,
    Had my eye on that for awhile now.

    ARE you saying I can self produce a video on my computer AND directly then upload to the forum?

    OH~ and I will approach my host with the info above SO THANKS again

    What are the Max Post Size and PHP Maximum Upload Size values on vBCloud?

    2. Bandwidth varies depending on the Cloud package purchased.
    3. All attachments are stored in the file system on Cloud. This is the recommended setting for all vBulletin sites.

    I created a video player mod for self-hosted version. I didn't create one for vBCloud (although technically possible) due to the attachment size and bandwidth restrictions of vBCloud.
