    I so love you right now nubian! Thank you so much for the help. I added the config line rebuilt the bbvideo code. I then removed the line, went back and it still wasn't working. However, I went and checked my bbvideo template settings (which were correct) but I went ahead and re-saved the template (even though I didn't make any changes) it somehow fixed the issue!!!!!! Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!!!!

    Oh BTW GHST, my apologies for the late reply.
    For some weird reason, I do not get email notifications when someone sends me a message on vBulletin.

    I'm not too sure why the video you posted is being displayed that small on this very site.
    I too was experiencing these same symptoms in the early stages of beta.
    This only occurred with upgrades and not clean installed.
    For some reason what was happening was that vBulletin was not modifying the bbcode_video template during the upgrades.
    Some people experienced this issue and some not.

    So to resolve this issue I did the following:
    • Edit your config.php and the following line of code that the end of the file.
      Code:
      $config['Misc']['debug'] = true;
    • Go to your admincp -> Style Manager
    • Choose "Edit Templates" from the Master Style section
    • Double click on "BB Code Layout Templates"
    • Select "bbcode_video"
    • Under the Controls block select edit
    • Locate the Vimeo block of code
    • Not too sure what your current dimensions are but here are mine:
      Code:
      <vb:elseif condition="$provider == 'vimeo'" />
      <object class="restrain" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" width="640" height="360" data="http://vimeo.com/moogaloop.swf?clip_id={vb:raw code}">
          <param name="movie" value="http://vimeo.com/moogaloop.swf?clip_id={vb:raw code}" />
          <param name="wmode" value="transparent" />
          <!--[if IE 6]>
          <embed width="640" height="360" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" src="http://vimeo.com/moogaloop.swf?clip_id={vb:raw code}" />
          <![endif]--></object>
    • Click save
    • Make a test video post for example: http://vimeo.com/8537554
    • ???
    • Profit

    I hope this works.
    Don't forget to remove the debug line of code in your config.php.

    the demon has reared its head again. check this thread and notice that the dimensions are small again.

    Just to be clear, I've inspected the bbcode_video template and the xml file. Both show the proper dimensions. i'm not sure why it keeps shrinking.

    You don't see post #3 showing improper sizing for the video embed?

    Bump. Steve or VB Staff? I'd like an answer on this issue. You can see that this site (vbulletin.com) is experiencing the problem as well.

    I've done some more detective work and it appears that it happens with any plugins I can install. I will install one to show top stats and then the Vimeo problem comes back. Uninstall, and try a different type of stats, same thing happens again.

    I've rebuilt threads, tried creating a new parent theme, none of it works. I would like to at least have the ability to install plugins from vb.org. I never go crazy with adding them but it seems foolish that I can't use any.

    I'm curious as to why it only affects Vimeo and not Youtube.

    Is anyone else experiencing this problem?

    My Vimeo example in post #3 is case in point. It doesn't work on this site now!

    If it's plugin related, then remove that plugin and contact the author about this.

    It's back!

    I can't delete this post. It was plugin related again.
