Oh, you're right, it does work. See, I'm getting old, I'm starting to misremember stuff...

we can either use DVD Profiler offline to just keep managing our local databases

Unfortunately, no. DVDP requires Invelos to add new titles. Try it. Cut your internet connection and try to add new titles. I stumbled upon this fact then Invelos was down a few months ago.

You have not seen the grey in my beard.

TBH I baught a total of 1 (one) Blu-ray this year and while I'm still maintaining my tools, my interest in DVDP is rapidly waning because of my lack of purchases.

I still have the old XML-export-to-Access-database-converter though.

Nothing genius behind it, just loads of ugly string parsing. IMDb now delivers websites that have 250,000 characters in a single line!

It appears as if IMDb is once more in a transitional phase and it delivers websites sometimes in the old style:



and sometimes in the new style:



I tried to accommodate both ways now but it's very possible that other stuff is going to break over the next couple days/weeks, depending on how they are restructuring

After updating t0 2.1.11.2 (and I tried re-install, too) I can't parse episodes from a season, get only a messagebox that he can't find episodes. I'm the only one with this problem?


Dammit! Nothing I changed on my end, so IMDb is restructing again

FYI: So far, in Germany you only had the age rating itself, from FSK-0 all the way up to FSK-18.

Now, similarly to the UK and others, they're going to give hints about what the rating is based on.

Does this mean you don't care if the data in your collection is correct? That's a shock!


I used to but only for main people. There is a Kevin Smith that used to play Ares on Xena: Warrior Princess and then there is the Jersey guy. But not for any random John Smith I have never heard of and will never look up anyway.

That is not me you are quoting. You know that I know better. Editing the cast and crew comes pretty close to editing a person. You can even make new ones.

Yeah sorry, made a mistake when removing nested quotes and now can't edit anymore because time's up. Was supposed to look like this:

So changing that birth year would not create a new cast record, but either change the birth year for the existing record


In the API you don't really have access to the cast/crew as people. You just can tell a profile that it contains this first, last and middle name with that birth year. There is no way to edit an actual person.

API stands for "application programming interface", it's a generic term for whenever a software allows a third party (in this case Invelos allows us plugin programmers) to connect to their software with our software.

DVD Profiler has an API that allows plug-ins to read and change the profile database. Not in all ways but at least in certain ways. We do not, however, have direct access to the actual database DVDP is using.

It's basically like you calling the pizza place and order a pizza. You get the guy on the phone (API) and can request your wishes but you do not have access to the kitchen itself (database). But in the end you get your pizza (profile). But if the API doesn't offer you to do something (no, you can't pick and chose your pizza toppings, we only offer standard items), you're out of luck.

more than 25,000


For testing purposes: Could you sort your collection by alphabet, go to the first F movie, mark all the profiles above, then backup those profiles, create a new database and restore the backup there? Law of average that should give us about 5,000 profiles (yes, I know that not every letter is equally represented in the movie title world).

Does the export work with this smaller database?


The problem is that DVD Profiler is stuck in Windows XP 32-bit world with the known "foreign letters" ANSI technology on top. At some point you will just reach the natural limits of what this program is capable of.

I tried the version to export "1 file per profile".... but as this didn't last too long I stopped after about an hour (not even 1000 files/profiles then of more than 25.000)



No I meant just randomly flag 5 profiles and export those into one file. Does the export complete there?

Did you try to export 1 profile? Maybe played with the options of what to export (leave out cast and/or crew for test)? Chose a different drive for the file?

I may not have the largest collection but it's not small either, so for reference: My ~7400 profiles export to a 163 MiB file in 2 minutes 50 seconds.

Well, I wanted to try... but I can't! I would need to export my (whole) collection to xml and export doesn't work anymore. It runs and runs... and at about 99 % the Error-Popup comes... I got an xml but with Zero KB size. So in this case I got no chance to try it.

That sounds like you need to run a database repair.

And if that doesn't help, do a test partial export in packages of 1000 profiles each and find the profile causing the export problems.

But it replaces letters, available in Episode 1 with an _ for all further episodes, and this I can't get out.


Text encoding is like this:

Reverend Mother Gaius Helen Mohiam: Do you know of the Water of Life? The bile of the newborn worms of Arrakis?

Paul Atreides: I have heard of it.

Reverend Mother:It is very dangerous and deadly. The Bene Gesserit women who drink it use it to see from within. There is a place...terrifying to us...to women. It is said...a man will come...the Kwisatz Haderach. He will go where we cannot. Many men have tried.

Paul: They tried and failed?

Reverend Mother:They tried and died.


Others fail just as badly:



ã is actually ã
¼ is ¼

The latter one obviously has no place in a street name.

The original address was "Schlüterstrasse" but ü encoded in HTML would be ü so more seems to have gone wrong
