DvdpVerify 2.0

There were a couple of things that bothered me in DvdpVerify version 1. The foremost one was that when a list was rearranged, but all items in the list were correct in themselves, there was no indication that this needed to be fixed in the actual profile, nor any way to mark it as fixed.

I was also not fond of the whole look. I wanted a more "structured" look. And the way the status was handled was complicated and bugged, leading to sometimes incorrect flagging of the tabs. Moving items was awkward when the list was long. You had to right click for the context menu for every step. So that needed changing. Adding items was also not as convenient as it should be.

So I decided to basically rewrite the program from scratch. About the only thing kept over from version 1 was the code that loaded the export file. Now the program looks like this:



As you can see, the color on the tabs have been replaced by "traffic lights", indicating the status of the data in each tab. I have also ditched the idea of transparency. I found that it really wasn't very useful, and it added a lot of code unnecessarily.

Since this is 95% new code, there could possibly be bugs that I haven't found during my testing. If you come across any, please let me know. There is, in fact, one minor cosmetic bug that I haven't quite decided how (or if) I should tackle. See if you can find it.

Oh yeah, there is of course a whole new help file that you should at least glance through.

Download it here.

No, haven't seen that. I also use Firefox. Strange ...

I don't quite understand the people who are saying "Goodbye" to DVD Profiler. Unless you are heavily dependent on using it on your iPhone, it still works well. So why not keep using it while it works.

I can see two roadblocks ahead.
1) The online database goes away. This will cripple Profiler somewhat, but it will still be useable.
2) It becomes incompatible with Windows (Win 10 or whatever). This will happen at some point in time, but hopefully not too soon. Perhaps when MS decides to stop supporting 32 bit applications.

There is of course the possibility that support and development will resume, by Ken or by someone else. It may not seem very likely, but who knows. I thought AnyDVD was dead when Slysoft folded, but RedFox picked up the ball, and it's still supported and developed. The same thing could happen here. Would enough people be willing to pay new (likely more expensive) licenses to make it possible? Perhaps a moot question ...

Anyway, I for one will keep using DVD Profiler as long as it is working. At least unless something even better comes along, which I seriously doubt.

Of course another solution is to create alternate IDs so as to have the correct images and release dates.

True, but I'm not fond of that solution. One of the most requested features for DVD Profiler has been to separate movie data from other data in order to avoid duplication of effort. And I like that thought.

Creating alternate IDs like this goes against that idea. It means creating more duplication of data, so any corrections to the movie data in one set is not carried over to the other set.

Well, that's a problem that we have with profiles added by disc id if these discs are part of more than one parent profile. Some of the data refers to the parent profile, especially if the child is in the same case as the parent (covers and overview for example).

Ideally when the disc is used for another parent, such parent profile related data should be kept local, not contributed. It should be "first come, first served", so to speak. Only disc related data should be updated, since it should be the same regardsless of parent. Not everyone realizes this.

So, there is not much to do, except lock the parent related parts so they don't get overwritten.

Found this on the MyMovies site and what they apparently did to get around the issue in Win10.  Bottom line, they updated their program to no rely on the Windows calls and manually calculating the disc IDs.

Disc Id differences

Interesting, but all it tells us is that Ken probably could fix this, if Ken was fixing things.
Not much we can do about it without him, is there? 
Well, I guess those of you who haven't already done so could by licenses to AnyDVD ...

ProfilerQuery 4.0



I could call this the Corona edition of ProfilerQuery. Not that it's a virus! 
It's just that I finally took the time to investigate Syncfusion's datagrid. So I replaced the standard datagrid in the Results tab, and now you can get filtering, grouping, searching and printing! And all this because I am quarantined and have nothing better to do. Well, this and watching movies, of course.

The new features are described in the updated help file, under the topic The Result Tab.

Create a "fake" boxset and name it "Marvel Cinematic Universe"
Add all MCU movies to the boxset and use sort title to sort them in the desired order.

Do the same for DC Universe and any other group of movies that you need to put in order.

I'm confused. You have posted in the forum for requests for the Android app, but it sounds like you are talking of features for the Desktop program?

Categories? There are only four Collection Categories and they can all be hidden, so they don't pose a problem. Lists that you can add to, but not delete from? That would be Media Types and Genres. I don't see how Media Types would be a problem, so that leaves Genres. Is that the one that bothers you?

Otherwise there are lists that you can't add to (or delete from), some of which are indeed rather long, for example countries and languages.

The chances of any updates to the program(s) seem rather slim, but if you are going to make requests it would probably be better if you were a bit more specific (and posted in the appropriate forum).

I'm inclined to agree with Martian. To me, "adapted from" implies that it is based on the story (or part thereof). Obviously the premise is more than just the characters, but not enough for an OMB, in my opinion. So possibly OCB.

That may have been the intent, but I can see nothing in the rules that says so. That said, I don't think it would be applicable here.

Another quick update.
Fixed a bug that incorrectly listed some "Other persons".
Added tooltips with the persons function(s).



This usually makes it easier to identify the person in the forum post, and does make it easier to find them in the cast and crew lists in Profiler.

BirthYearCheck 2.1.0

Things are moving fast when you're bored. Or in this case when I am bored. 
I realized that there was a rather obvous extension needed in the functionality - listing by title.



I also added a help file. Not that the program is hard to use, but read it anyway. There is a feature that you might miss otherwise. Just saying ...

BirthYearCheck 2.0.0

"Hey! Let's be careful out there!"

And here is the result: BirthYearCheck 1.1.0



And as requested, AiAustria, all media types are now shown in the Title link.

Note: If someone in Others has two links in the birth year list, that person will be listed twice, once with each link.

Q: Is there a sorting order behind the movie title list?
The order in which they are found in the export file.

Quote:
Suggestion: If there are more than one media type selected in a profile, only the first one is displayed in the movie list. Would be nice, if all could be displayed.
Well, I could do that, but is it really relevant? Since the object is to find where birthyears may be needed I would have thought that listing the major media type was sufficient.

Quote:
Suggestion: Would be nice, if the import of the XML File could be limited to the collections displayed under Owned. Otherwise my technical collections with headshot and BY profiles completely blow the result (1906 vs. 1021 persons with probablly missing BYs).
If you just want the owned collection, why not export only Owned?

When I did some work using version 1.0 I realized that it would be silly to fix just one birthyear in a profile if there were more birthyears needed for the same profile, so I'm working on version 1.1. It's not finished, but here's a preview of what I have so far:

I intend to make the "Other persons" names hyperlinks to their respective forum posts. Most likely there will be other design changes as well. Watch this space for an announcement.

After I had finished my previous project - BirthYearLookup - it occured to me that being able to check which persons in your collection that need birth years would be really useful. So I wrore this tool that compares the names in your collection with the names in the list of approved birth years.



Names in blue have at least one unknown birth year, so may or may not need a birth year.
Names in red do need a birth year.

Read more about it and download BirthYearCheck 1.0.0

PS: As you can see, I have my work cut out for me if I want to check all 1299 names that may need a birth year.

I have noticed that something has changed in Windows 10 recently. When I restart Windows it no longer takes down DVD Profiler, but insteads hangs and waits for Profiler to exit. So I guess that DvdpRebootGuard no longer fills any function.

I'm currently switching to the WebView control

That still uses the non-chromium Edge browser, if I understand correctly. So will you update to WebView2 when that is released? Not sure how much difference it will make.
