I would like to know which of these fields you think might be useful to you.


Sound interesting. For me, it would be
Production year, genres, director(s), awards, Metacritic rating, IMDb rating, # of IMDb votes.

3000 x 50 GB = 150TB
300 x 100GB  =  30TB
1200 x 8 = 10TB


Well, I can tell you that I have 990 dvds and 113 blurays. They are all ripped to .mkv - only the main features, not all the extras (occasionaly I have included the blooper-reel from thing like The Big Bang Theory.)

Together with the scanned covers (around 10-15 MB each), it totals 9.7 TB.

Where do you get the time to do that??? I guess little by little as you acquire the discs. How long does each rip tale?

When I started doing it, I got through my (then) ~700 discs in about six months. Using MakeMKV, a dvd-rip usually takes 4-6 minutes (with LibreDrive) and anywhere from 10 to 20 minutes for a BluRay.

The covers I scan in 300 dpi as zip-compressed tiff.

From then, when I get new discs, they go directly into DVDP (obviously), and in that same go, I rip it and scan the covers, moving it to my NAS. And yes, about every 20 or so, I do make an extra copy to an off-line harddrive.

Sorry, have a tendency to ramble. I know Invelos was not the original creator of this software. My family got the key before they acquired it.

I think you are missing something here...

The abridged version goes something like this (free from memory):
Once upon a time, many moons ago, three people decided to found a company called Intervocative, The purpose of the company was to market the software that the three people wrote.

Years later, it turned out that only one of the three people, Kenneth Cole (aka. Ken), had made a program and released it through Intervocative - that program was DVD Profiler. For reasons that have never been fully disclosed, Ken had an argument with the other two owners, resulting in Ken taking DVD Profiler and leaving Intervocative, starting his own company Invelos and running DVD Profiler from there.

Yes, the company changed, but the developer remained the same. He even converted old keys bought through Intervocative to new Invelos-keys free of charge...

I can see the use of that, but a few years ago, I ripped my entire collection to a NAS (which currently holds 10,4 TB of movies only, only video, best audio-track and danish subs (with a few exceptions) ripped to mkv), and when doing that, I also scanned every single cover and put it in DVDP.

And no, I do not watch the movies on my computer. Well, I sort of do - I have a computer connected my tv through my surround receiver, so I still get the full experience (without all the unskippable junk in the beginning of the discs).

Since then, whenever I got a new DVD/BR, first thing I do is rip it and scan the cover. These days, I only use my BR-player to play the occasional SACD... 

Edit: So, gave it a spin anyway and found that I've been living a lie - if found quite a few covers in pretty low resolution, so I guess I'll have to fire up the scanner when I've got the time... 

Thanks, Gunnar - you make a lot of usefull tools that I didn't know I needed!

I agree. The rules clearly states
Quote:
If a title is re-released with the same UPC, but different cover images, do not contribute the new images to the original profile.


So even if the newly contributed scan was better quality, it would not be allowed as per the rules.

Will that do? No fancy formatting options, it's a third party grid control, so what you see is what you get.

Added a criteria "Original title is not empty" and got exactly what I wanted!

Tanks, Gunnar - once again you saved the day!

I'm trying to make a simple report that prints only collection number, title and original title - but ONLY if the original title is not blank. I just can work out how to set this condition (if it is even possible)?

If not, does anyone know of a plugin or other third-party tool that can do this?

In the menu, select DVD -> Change UPC / Locality. Click the blue arrow on the right to create an alternate profile for the same UPC/EAN.

For those without UPCs, you can try adding them by disc-id or title - select the appropiate on top of the add dvd window.

Are you sure that this is about the Profiler Limit?
Maybe a problem with Ram of Computer...
I dont know about the limit number of Profiler.
Sounds strange to me...

I haven't heard about a limit before, but if he can enter 32,768 and not add anymore, that matches a signed integer...

Just realized that the import from Profiler does not include collection number. This is a definite showstopper for me, as that is the only way I can find a title in my shelves. 

I noticed that too! I'm sure I'm just missing it, as I can't imagine a program not having this - I mean, it is the most important field right after the title!

DpUpdateCheck 2.0

I couldn't resist taking on mediadogg's "challenge", getting local data from HTTPJolie instead of from an export file. Not surprisingly it's a bit slower. Reading from a file is faster that getting the same data via HTTPJolie. But you don't really have to wait for it, just let it run while you do something else.

It is a bit slower, but not much - it's still running at >1 profile/sec. 
And even using .xml-files, I doubt anyone would just sit and stare at it, waiting for it to finish...

Sure was a bug! I bypassed the check if the entire DVD was locked - which all yours were. 

ROTFLMAO! Honestly, for some reason, this made me laugh out loud, even though I'm home alone. In the past, I have done some programming myself, and this is the sort of thing that makes sense, until you remember the odd ways of users... :-)

My collection is just over 1000 titles, yet it runs thorugh the entire file in less than a second, saying there are no updates? In the sections, I have set everything to "Always", except Discinformation.

When you load the xml file, does DpUpdateCheck say that it has 1000 something profiles loaded?

Yes, it does.

My xml-file is here, if you would want to see it. :-)

I notice there is a download indicator now, so maybe you have discovered the "Digital Downloads" tab when you log in.

I did, yes. 

When installing, I then ran into another problem - it kept giving me the error "Setup has detected that HTTP-Jolie is currently running." It took me longer than I am willing to admit to figure out that it meant DVDProfiler, not HTTP-Jolie. When I closed DVDP, it installed without a hitch! :-)

I'm obviously doing something wrong here...

Got this installed, exported my collection to an .xml-file and opened it with DpUpdateCheck.

My collection is just over 1000 titles, yet it runs thorugh the entire file in less than a second, saying there are no updates? In the sections, I have set everything to "Always", except Discinformation.

So, apparantly I need this to run one of GSyrens plugins...

Even though I think it is f'ing annoying and stupid to have people register for free software (1), I did, and it now says "Order complete" - but it doesn't give me a link to download it!?

(1) I read a survey once, that about 70% of potential customers skips the product if they have to register in order to download the software advertised as "free", as the registration process is more often than not considered "phishing", because you give the company personal information that they have absolutely no use for, other than spamming you or selling your information on...
