Notice the file names on his pictures. Encoded in the file name are first name, middle name, last name and birth year. It is the official DVDP Profiler way of identifying head shots on a disk file. Does anybody remember where those rules are described? Maybe in the Wiki?


The wiki used to be here: http://www.dougweb.org/dvdpro/kb/index.php. Unfortunately it appears to be gone.

Luckily the Wayback Machine still has a copy of the page: https://web.archive.org/web/20121027111600/http://www.dougweb.org:80/dvdpro/kb/index.php?title=Credit_Photos#Storing_on_the_harddrive

I'll quote it here before it is lost forever:

The naming conventions for the file are:
  • LastName_FirstName_MiddleName

  • And if the birth year is set:
  • LastName_FirstName_MiddleName_BirthYear


  • Examples:
    Name --- File name
    Cher --- _Cher_.jpg
    John Wayne  --- Wayne_John_.jpg
    Kevin Smith (1970)  --- Smith_Kevin__1970.jpg
    Kevin Smith (1963)  --- Smith_Kevin__1963.jpg
    William H. Macy --- Macy_William_H..jpg
    Christian I. Nyby II --- Nyby II_Christian_I..jpg

    Note: The file name doesn't need to have a birth year. If DVD Profiler doesn't find a file with birth year, it will use the one without a birth year.

    Example: Kevin Smith (1970): Smith_Kevin__1970.jpg doesn't exist, but Smith_Kevin_.jpg does. DVD Profiler will use Smith_Kevin_.jpg instead.

    Since every profile is most likely to a different movie, I'm afraid there is no way to bulk-edit cast and crew. (Unless mediadogg's actual tool BulkEdit has some function to do it).

    Set the focus on the collection list and press CTRL-A. Or go to Collection -> Flags and make your selection there.

    Then use Collection -> Flagged -> Set Exclusions and reset the options you want to

    But you need to take it with a grain of salt.

    For example, I have a lot of 505* EANs that are purely for the German market, e.g.

    5-053083-071813



    According to the wiki page, 505 is a UK prefix. It's probably due to the fact that the manufacturing company is located there and simply produces the DVDs for the entire EU market (at least until Brexit).

    I would not use ID for IMDb simply because it is ID. Rather IM or something.

    Also you need Kickstarter. Maybe _KS?

    I was wondering if anyone includes anything other than DVDs and BDs in their local databases? 


    I have a digital download in there (my Kickstarter copy of the Veronica Mars movie)

    I keep my books and comics in seperate databases.

    A possible work-around is to create a manual profile and copy everything from the original child profile (DVD/Copy, DVD/Paste), and add that manual profile as a child to the second boxset. The downside is, of course, that this child will never be automatically updated.


    Or create an alternate profile Id.

    Quoting The Movieman:
    Quote:
    Just curious to read from some, what info do you keep locally that can't be contributed to the database?


    Ttitles.
    TV show titles because I like my seasons numbered clean and equally. No "The Complete Season One" here and "The Second Season" there.
    Movie titles because I remove all editions unless I have the same title twice.

    Cast & Crew.
    The past ten years have shown that the common name system is a crutch and we'll never get a person-Id system. So I'd rather take the information from IMDb and can live with the fact that the role is called "Captain Kirk" instead of "Kirk" like in the actual credits.

    Quote:

    And therein lies the rub: "theoretically". But what happens when all the affected profiles (both parents and all children) get downloaded from the Online?


    They get downloaded and attached to the first profile, then discarded for the other ones. Or last one wins. Either or, they are just attached to one profile.

    You can try it out. Both of these German Babylon 5 sets 7321921739934 and 7321921228551 contain the disc F45C-2781-4F50-9D7C (Season 1, Disc 1).

    If you add both of them at the same time, the child is only attached to one of them

    That was the issue where I submitted the child profiles for the parent and some were approved and some were not.  If I try and create those child profiles from scratch it tells me the disc id's are for another profile. 


    I think we need to talk in images, to get some confusion cleared up.

    For the online database, you can contribute a profile that locally has child profiles attached. Like this one of mine:



    Once this contribution has been approved, anyone updating their profile of " Young Sheldon: The Complete First Season" 883929-643509 will get notified that there are new child profiles available for this box set.

    Theoretically, these same discs 365D-DC5E-33FB-DC4F and 4316-208E-6910-50D4 could be attached to a different box set in the Online database. But not your local. Locally one profile can only have one parent.

    Quote:

    Can you make a screenshot of that and upload somewhere for us to see? Otherwise it's hard to understand what you're doing and where you're failing exactly

    then reminded myself that a given profile can have only one parent. What am I missing?


    You're thinking "your local DB". In your local, one profile can only have one parent, true. This is due to the hierarchical display of the program

    But in the online any number of profiles can have the same child profile assigned because it's just a bit of text in the "box set content" part of the profile.


    Since the OP was talking about contribution ("submit") I assumed that this was his issue.

    All profiles live by themselves first and foremost.

    But you can take any number of box sets and assign the same child profiles to them.

    This often happens with re-releases of seasons or even complete series boxes that just re-pack the discs from the earlier releases.

    So something like this:

    Quote:

    Star Trek: Season 1 (UPC: 123456789012)
    - Disc 1  (DiscId: ABCD-EF12-3456-890A)

    Star Trek: The Complete Series (UPC: 987654321098)
    - Disc 1 (DiscId: ABCD-EF12-3456-890A)


    is totally ok and not out of the norm.
