Aeva Media 1.4w
Aeva Lite 7.2
Developed by René-Gilles Deberdt
for SMF 1.1.x and SMF 2.0.
© Nao & Dragooon

  • Aeva Lite is a popular auto-embedding mod that allows you to automatically embed any video URL from 200+ websites such as YouTube, Dailymotion and even non-video websites such as Google Maps.
  • Aeva Media (previously 'SMF Media Gallery') is a full-featured gallery system built on top of Aeva Lite (so you don't need to install Lite in addition to it.)


- Development on Aeva Lite and Aeva Media has ended. This also includes the commercial branch of Aeva Media. (Reasons here.)

- All new development on these mods, including taking over the attachment and avatar systems, is now being included directly into Wedge, which features the commercial branch of Aeva Media (for free, of course.) -- more details at, if you're interested.

- I won't be replying PMs or forum posts (even if I wanted to, I couldn't as I'm post-banned -- reasons here and here -- old stuff, though. I'm cool with the SMF team now.)
Aeva products are free of bugs though, thanks to their long development time (2007-2009 for Aeva Lite and 2008-2010 for Aeva Media), and you shouldn't worry about being able to use them on SMF, even if you don't switch to Wedge.

- I'm still considering deleting Aeva Media and Aeva Lite from once Wedge is out. I secured permission from the co-authors. I'm also not sure whether I'll a copy online at Whether I end up doing it or not, at any rate, if you're a heavy user, MAKE SURE to keep a copy of the AeMe package file, if only to be able to reinstall it in the future. I do not aim to harm users, only to make things simpler to manage.

- The complete readme file for AeMe is available only here, for the sake of shortening this mod page. It is no longer updated, though.

- Beware, if you want to install or upgrade Aeva Lite or Aeva Media, you need to uninstall any earlier versions of Aeva, Aeva Media and SMF Media Gallery!

- The automatic sitelist processes for both Aeva Lite and Aeva Media are terminated. If a website stops working -- not my fault. Ask the SMF team to fix it for you.

- I think I'm done. It's been an... interesting 3 years working on the Aeva series. It can now be put to rest.

CHANGELOG for Aeva Lite
Version 7.2 (2nd November 2011)
* Updated sitelist to the latest version in Wedge, including removal
  of iMeem (long dead), and support for URLs.
- Removed daily retrieval of sitelist and version updates,
  as no further versions are planned.

Version 7.1.708 (27th August 2010)
! Forcing cache to be disabled on posts, because this would break Javascript code.
+ Added support for HTML-type embedding, and Google Maps (which uses just that)
* Added support for YouTube's data API. It fixes those pesky permanently
  broken lookups after embedding a certain amount of videos.
! Hopefully fixed internal version numbers, avoiding some broken sitelists.
! More minor fixes from the Aeva Media 2.x codebase.
