By making a complete redesign of both front and back end, writing thousands of lines of code. Using latest and modern apis, We are glad to announce ClipBucket V3 Will be released pretty soon as we have completed 75% of the task.
Sorry for keep you waiting for so long but things were so complicated, writing documentation and adding new and modern design took us long. Let me just show you some screenshots and explain whats going on.
A complete re-design of video manager to make things more visible that an admin needs to view and ease of access to actions that he wants to perform with videos, including quick search.
new video editor as well, we have made things more flexible so that you can make editings more fast and easily as you can see the button on right top will stick to window-top so you can save video even if you are scrolled to bottom of the window.
New categories manager with full ajax to make things faster. Now you can choose category icons as well to display them either in front-end or back-end to make UI more attractive.
A widget manager for ClipBucket. O yes, this is a widget manager, you can drag widgets as you can see and drop them in the right pane. And different widgets can have different settings that you will be able to edit. Its a wordpress-like widget system.
Now our newly improved language manger make you edit or add new languages more easily.
new and improved plugin manager.
Dropping our old conversion toolkit, we have re-written everything from scratch to make things ready and compatible with most of the systems available and also made things even a lot easier and customize-able so that admins can add or create new profiles as many as they like based on their requirements. Including mobile and HTML5 version.
This is how adding new conversion profile will look like.
do not worry, we have already written the documentation and tutorials, you will have it when we will release our v3.
we have dropped uploadify due to its license limitations and added plupload instead and we are really thankful to have such a nice and easy uploader. Its fully integerate with ClipBucket v3 with HTML5 features including Drag and Drop. Our new interface will make video uploading more fast as it will let you upload multiple videos in different methods at the same time with all configuration options. and this is how it will look like
This is not the end of ClipBucket v3, it was just a TEASER. yes its just teaser of our new features for ClipBucket v3. I will be posting more updates in upcoming days as we are really close to release our alpha version. Just stay with us.
Thanks for all of your love and using ClipBucket.
Eid Mubarak to you all in advance.
Just to give a brief update about our new version. We are adding many major upgrades in our system by adding more new demanding, required and awesome features and to improve overall system performance.
Again, not to make difficult for developers to understand whole thing we are following bit of design made by wordpress.
Filters, now you can apply filters on your output just like wordpress, a complete list will be given before the release to developers so they can figure out how to use and where to use.
I will keep updating about more features and updates. Stay connect.
Ok, here is the news.
We moved our goals a step forward, also added Widgets, just like wordpress. a new template with Smarty V3 with more easy development and using amplify.js to improve ajax. We are behind schedule but will release a preview soon, those are are anxious can download it from SVN. Photos section also updated and more changes in the playlist. A new toolkit to make conversion system better and to debug processes easily. It takes time to development something better. Again, we are TWO developers here and I cannot promise anything really soon.
Well, we have been lazy in releasing the updates and I am really sorry for that but we have never thought of stopping ClipBucket development. Today we have new challenges to accomplish and add more features to be on Top.
There have been more scripts in the market and ClipBucket, still, so far has very positive image and we have now looking to FORGED it even deeper with your support.
Ok, now lets move to the main thing. Many of you are waiting for our new upgrade. Before I tell you what it will have I will only give you a glimpse of what we have in our mind to put in ClipBucket.
- HTML5, yes this time its for real
- A Whole new template using Twitter Bootstrap
- Un-hiding the hidden features of ClipBucket (due to lack of documentation, now we are positive)
- Some awesome improvements in our Collections and Photos section
- Full version of Audio
- The Mobile version
- Open Integration, using JS
And some more cool ideas we have been thinking of implementing on ClipBucket.
This time, I will not ask for anyone to help us in developing ClipBucket, I think we can develop anything with the help of my AWESOME LITTLE TEAM of CLIPBUCKET, if still anyone wants to help us in development, you are welcome.
You all are welcome to write us an email to express your ideas , feedbacks or anything.
Just give us 30 Days, and you will have new ClipBucket Download Link in your inbox. I cannot promise, but still, I think we can make it.
Have a good day, and thanks for using ClipBucket.
With Love, From Pakistan
A self-certified ClipBucket Head Developer

If you are running a ClipBucket website then you must know following tips in order to keep your website running smoothly
Delete files from your temp directory which are old and are not deleted by Clipbucket, if you don’t want to keep video conversion logs for long time delete them after specified time, we have added new options in “Tool Box” called maintenance for deleting inactive sessions, old activity feeds and access logs that actually takes a lot of space on your server. Keep checking your server performance and delete conversion locks if your videos stop converting.
No matter how much fast or professionally written script you choose, most important role is played by your server and its configuration, if server is not configured properly a small HTML based website can even cost you big problems so always make sure your server is optimized and is configured according to your requirement. Keep an eye on apache or your website log error log and make sure your mysql is configured properly to handle enough of the traffic. Use quality servers for a video conversion website because it takes a lot of CPU.
When too many connections are made on 1 server it can crash and cost you many problems such has hardware failure so we always recommend you MultiServer plugin for ClipBucket, by using a MultiServer plugin you can keep your videos, thumbs and photos on different servers so your website can handle HTTP requests properly and do not crash on having a large load of traffic.
When you see a user uploads 10 videos but Clipbucket shows it has uploaded 8 or 5 or may be –1 its because ClipBucket increment or decrement video counts when user uploads or deletes a video but sometimes when you mass embed or mass delete videos, this counting can go bit wrong so we suggest you to re-index videos, users and other objects to keep your stats updated on your website, to use ClipBucket ReIndexer goto Admin Area > Tool Box > ReIndexer
If your ClipBucket missed the video duration, you can goto Admin area > Tool box > Fix duration , here you can find videos with no duration, you can choose option how to update duration and most chances are ClipBucket will fix your video duration by reading its conversion log.
FFMPEG, FLVTool2, FLVtool++ and MP4Box , these modules are open-source and are widely used for video conversion and repairing but if they are not updated properly, they can cause your videos not to convert or stream properly so always keep an updated version of these modules , you can ask ClipBucket official team to do this job for you.
Pseudo Streaming is very important feature that every video sharing website must have but you must have a properly configured webserver in order to make it work. Ask your host to enable your server H264 streaming plugin so you can let your viewers to seek video from where they want to watch. Once your web server is properly configured for pseudo streaming , goto Admin Area > Manage players > Player settings > Check Pseudo streaming.

I am here to annoucne, our update has been delayed, yea you guys already know 25th december has already passed, but due to few reasons we decided to delay our release.
- Fawaz was on vacations and there was no language pack for the picture mod, now i will have it today as he is back
- In addition to remote upload, i have added Upload from Youtube, now user just need to put Youtube Link and you will have its video embedded
- We also have to improve our pagination system for stability of website and server
- Some of important things are still missing , i will list them once we will finish working on them
We have also added “Remote play” upload option , that will let you enter any video file link and it will be played from that link instead of download, convert and all the processing stuff
I know many users are awaiting for new release, please be cool as we are working on many parts of Clipbucket for its stability.
Relase date : Fatal error, unknown date defined release_date(); please stick with older version till new update arrives
If you guys have an idea in your mind, you can simply post it on our forums.

Well fellas, we have been too much busy in coding, alot, for free offcourse and we really enjoy doing it till our mum called us to buy some onions, yes, for that, we code some official plugins, too.
clipbucket was going great, had good interactive features and i think, it was a good video sharing script but sure it misses alot of good features on what we were working on. for all those who wants to turn on your PICTURE SECTION, get ready, we are going to release is on 25th December, if we able to meet our milestone.
Fawaz worked alot on this section, and believe it or not, he had really did an AWSOME job and i know he wont disappoint any of you. Our picture section will have all those features that you want, it can be used as wallpaper directory or private pictures like facebook have or just simple image sharing like flickr.
I don’t have any demo or screen-shot of the section because i am writing this blog from my private computer, btw we are going to launch it in couple of days. so you better stay tuned with clipbucket.
Besides this, i always bring a new problem for all users :p, this time, its an ultimate uploader, “whats so ultimate about it” ? well, i know you guys love the way you upload videos on youtube, simply select the file, no form filling, just hit upload and boooom, upload and do the rest later when you have time for it. so i code a whole new file uploader, now you can upload multiple files at once, no form filling, fully ajax, same like youtube. see the screenshots below, i was not able to provide you a video demo because i am not in my workplace write now..
Yea, you can see how our uploader works.
Now lets come to another promising feature, that no other script has, we are now introducing our new Remote upload, an Ajax Based remote uploader with file upload status and speed. works with PHP 5.2 and 5.3 with different method.
I wrote down whole new remote downloader for Clipbucket, exlusive for clipbucket as you will nto find any remote downloader of php with status. i really love php because with php 5.3 we can add more enormous features in future :p , i dont have its screenshots or demo either as you already know the reason
We also have a Christmas Gift for all of our exclusive users, its a surprise gift, its absolutely free. hint # 1 : you can run your video sharing website without any modules
Clipbucket is totally and totally rely on its paid plugins, we don’t have enough earnings but we sure do our best. If you , any of you, can bring us a good sponsor, a helper or anyone who can be a beneficial for Clipbucket, you are welcomed , we really want to make this project a really bigger one s we are aiming for a social + media sharing script which means facebook and twitter clone is not far far away. If you keep supporting us, we will definetly bring something new to this world.
Happy X-Mas and on 25th December its a very important day for us “Pakistanis” , its a day when our beloved leader and founder of Pakistan, Quad-e-Azam was born, may his soul rest in heaven.
and yes, i am the one whose name keep showing on every clipbucket powered website
ClipBucket 2.0.8 Rev 366 , We released 2.0.8 Rev 365 yesterday, but few bugs remains there so that’s why we have to release Rev 366, now its a clean release, some aw some new features and even more stable video conversion.
As we told you before, Pakplayer is based on flowplayer so it woks the same as Flowplayer BUT we made a core editing to integrate with our need completely, here is a quick overview of what Pakplayer can do
Pakplayer can pseudo stream videos, works with lighttpd H264 streaming as well as rtmp. For those who don’t have lighttpd can work things out with xmoov.
Pakplayer is really easy to control, almost every part of Pakplayer is controlled via Java-scripting, using jQuery, Controlling Pakplayer is no more difficult, you can either read flowplayer articles or wait for our docs.
Pakplayer can extend its power with its plugins such as Youtube or Advertising or Viral Videos like, we Compiled Main source with Youtube and Pseudo Streaming plugin only, you can expect more in future.
Pakplayer skin can be changed with CSS, you can brand your own player, change gradients, styles easily, its totally based on CSS 3 and XHTML
well folks, this a very basic overview of Pakplayer which i can write in very basic mode. I have to go advance in order to tell its core capabilities.
There are many video sharing script available but what makes Clipbucket so special ? here is a list of features you wont find in any other script.
- Free & Open Source , ClipBucket is first free & open source video sharing website script.
- Easy plugin system, no other script has easy plugin system as compared to ClipBucket because of its stability and flexibility

- Easy Template Engine, ClipBucket template editing is the most easy-to-edit template system among all.
