    Hey Smashers! Today we're proud to announce another addition to Smashboards, the Media section! You'll now be able to find and filter all of your favourite Smash VODs from right on Smashboards itself!

    The media index greets you with popular playlists and the most recent videos

    For the initial launch of the system, we've added over three and a half thousand videos from VGBootCamp, ClashTournaments and 8WayRun, and tagged the characters used in every single one of them.

    Everything in the system is organized into categories, the vast majority of course being Tournament Matches. Sort through thousands of videos across years of Smash, filtering by game, match format (Singles or Doubles) and the characters that appear in the set. In the near future, you'll also be able to filter for the players in a match, with some videos already being tagged.

    Search for characters and players, or expand the options to search by game and match format

    Other categories include Exhibitions, which includes exhibitions and money matches, Compilations for things like combo videos and highlight reels, Crew Battles, Friendlies and of course, individual Highlights, like this:

    Easily embed videos from the media section!

    A very very special thanks goes out to @PillsBuryDopeBoy who took care of tagging over 5200 characters in the system, beating out my own efforts of 3200! This wouldn't be ready today without his incredible efforts. I'd also like to thank @Jaxel of 8WayRun, who is the developer behind the Media add-on for XenForo (As well as the Rankings system!)

    Going forward, the Media team will be working to keep the section up to date, as well as getting players tagged in all current and future videos. If you're interested in helping with the Media section, please get in touch with me!

    Do you run a Smash channel and want to get your videos in the system? Just as above, please send a message to me and I'll get you the access you need and your past videos in the system.

    Got feedback on the Media section? Send me a PM or bug me on Twitter @Warchamp7
Smashboards Head Admin
Warchamp7 is the head technical admin of Smashboards and Squidboards, as well as possibly the most aggro Ganondorf in Smash. It doesn't work out very well.

Keep an eye for updates and improvements to the site from him, as well as direct all the blame towards him when anything goes wrong.
