Again, this is an amazing modules. A few concepts have come up as I've worked through your demo. Namely, some nice to have UI features and the ability to allow module owners to "monetize" the features on their sites:

1. Upload Limits based on DNN Role. Add quantity support by role (for example a free member can add one video, but a paid member can add 20)

2. Role based viewing...again some videos could be "free" and others require membership. (I think this might have been suggested already by another user)

3. Video Search. It would be nice to incorporate search into the view module. Results would follow the thumbnail tile presentation you already have.

4. Tokens for DNN User to make it easy to tie member videos to other community modules like forums (Active Forums), Private Messenging (Ventrian) or profiles (DNN Fusion)

5. Ending slide for each video. Like YouTube, the ability to append a branded flv onto the end of each video. This would be especially helpful for embedded videos as you could display a "Click here to View More Videos" driving links an traffic back to the site.

6. URL Rewriting (SEO). Adding some url paramters based on maybe category and video name from the view to the player page would help SEO (so www.mysite.com/videos/tabid/10/VideoId/3/Default.aspx

would become:

www.mysite.com/videos/automobiles/1986_BMW_380i/tabid/10/VideoId/3/Default.aspx

7. Private Videos. Allow users to upload videos but exlude them from public searches and category display.

Steven, I really appreciate your kind suggestion, I considered to include some of them in UVG 1.0, but didn't do it due to time reason. however, I already plan to support them in future versions.

Can you explain it in more detail about the 4th point? I'm not exactly sure.

Thank you.

Glad to hear that you are already considering adding these features into the product.

Here is some more clarification on item #4:

Some other modules such as "Active Forums" and DNNFusions "My Profile" use tokens to allow you to connect user content across modules.

So, for example it might be nice in a forum to link a user's profile summary to their "video gallery" using a token I could place in their template manager.

<a href="mysite.com/gallery/user/[userid]/default.aspx">view my video gallery</a>

Thanks for your explaination, I think I'll add it to UVG_RelatedVideos module, I'll force this module to read "UserId" parameter from querystring.

Thanks.
