Message Details
Season 2 of Stranger Things is coming out on UHD/Blu-ray/DVD this Tuesday coming up.  Retro VHS style packaging will be used again as was the case with Season 1.  For those that prefer to house the discs in regular Blu-ray cases I've worked up some cover art which can downloaded below.

I'm using posters I found online for the front portion of each.  Added the Netflix credit myself.  The same title treatment is being used for the back portion.  Note also that the title treatment for the spine is using the correct font.  The red framing I'm using is a nod to the RCA VHS releases of days gone by.  The back portion of each closely follows the layout and details offered on the retail packaging with a couple twists.  The spine is intended to be somewhat reminiscent of the spine of a VHS tape insofar as how I've segmented the top and bottom areas leaving a defined area in the center for the label.

In any event, these were fun to put together.  Feel free to download any of these for use locally. (Front and back images available on my DVD Profiler based websites.  See my forum signature.) There are two versions of the cover art available below.  I've worked up versions with 15mm spines for use with cases that can hold 4-6 discs.  I've also got versions with 11mm spines for use with cases that can hold 2-3 discs.  Enjoy!

(Note: Custom cover art should not be contributed to the Invelos Online Database.)

Thanks for explaining this.  It's exactly what I'd have wanted to do if I knew I could.  Now I know I can and how.  It means all my custom roles remain intact, which downloading my online databases to my tablet loses. 

So you know, syncing the mobile apps with your local databases works great over the Internet as well.  My main computer here at the house is a laptop which runs 24/7.  I always keep DVD Profiler up and running as well.  I put my laptop's IP address in the DMZ of my router in addition to forwarding all DVD Profiler port traffic (32847) to the IP address.  With the mobile app I'm then connecting to each of my databases using my WAN IP rather than my laptop's IP address.  Works great!  Of course you want to be sure to only run an update from the mobile app for the local database you have open at the time. (The mobile app will warn you if this isn't the case.) If I want to connect and update a different database (which is very rare) I just remotely connect to my laptop using TeamViewer and open the database in question before running the update from the mobile app.

So, for movies with numbers as the name or at the start of the name, personally, I would like them all to sort together. So

"Two Tigers" would sort near to "2010"

Is it acceptable to make the sort title for Two Tigers to be "2 Tigers" so that numbered titles sort together?

Another one that bothers me is "The VVitch". Obviously the intent of the two Vs is to create an exhagerated "W", so logic should say the sort title should be "Witch", not "VVitch". Thoughts?

It's acceptable to do whatever you want with your local database.  Set the "Sort Title" to whatever you want.  Set the "Title" to whatever you want in fact.  It's no ones place to tell you otherwise.  Just be sure to never contribute any local profile data to the Invelos Online Database that doesn't meet the contribution guidelines.

There's a similar thread over at Blu-ray.com where people post custom cover art they've created.  I thought I'd start a similar thread here for those interested.  Just please make sure not to post cover art which you did not author.  Also keep in mind that custom cover art should not be contributed to the Invelos Online Database.  In any event, I'll get things started.  See below.
__________________________________

The title Antz was released on Blu-ray this week.  I pre-ordered the title, but didn't care for the cover art at all.  I liked the original DVD cover art much better, so I spent a couple hours the other day converting the original DVD cover art over for use as a Blu-ray cover.  Results shown below.

Before:


After:


For DVD Profiler I use smaller images of the front and back portions.  They're still quite a bit larger than what the Invelos Online Database uses with respects to retail covers though.  The front and back cover images I'm using locally with DVD Profiler provided below for those interested.


(For use with your local database only.  Do not contribute to the Invelos Online Database.)

I host my own phpDVDProfiler based websites as well.  The websites are a mirror reflection of my local profile data and cover art.  You can check out my online version of this profile here.  To view the profile within the full structure of my websites hit up the appropriate link below in my forum signature. (Best viewed using a conventional computer or laptop with a browser that supports old school frames.)

I'd suggest not concerning yourself with the item being represented in the "shared" online database.  Just add the items to your local database however you'd like and move on.  Life's too short.

What you are looking to do is already possible.  Highlight the existing profile, copy the profile data via "DVD->Copy", highlight the target profile, paste the profile data via "DVD->Paste".  The "Paste Profile Data" window is displayed.  Select the profile data you want to paste and click OK.

You could also create a copy of the existing profile instead, then changing the UPC afterwards.  Highlight the existing profile and select the "DVD->Change UPC / Locality" option, then selecting the "Select/Create Alternate Version" option.  This expands the "Change UPC / Locality" window.  Under the "Alternate Versions" section highlight the "Create New Alternate Version" option checking the "Retain existing entry and create a clone" option at the bottom, then clicking OK.  The profile is cloned.  Once cloned highlight the resulting profile, select the "DVD->Change UPC / Locality" option and change the UPC in addition to the Locality if needed.

Bada bing, bada boom.  It's so easy a caveman could do it.  Have fun!

Albeit crude, it is possible to share profiles without the online database.  Just this evening I shared my local profiles for the "24: The Complete Series" Blu-ray box set courtesy of Fox Japan.  I just flagged the 60 profiles in question, backed up the flagged entries only, then uploading the resulting file to my web space so my friend could download it.  She downloaded the file, unzipped it, then performed a restore merging the profiles with her existing database.

And why didn't I just contribute the profiles, so they were available for all to download?  I didn't contribute them, because they don't meet the contribution guidelines and I had better things to do with my life at the time than build the profiles initially for contribution, then updating each and every one as I saw fit after the fact for my own purposes locally.

If at some point the online database is no longer available I won't lose any sleep.  I'm fully capable of adding a given title from scratch locally and from day one I've backed up my local database in the event I ever need to perform a restore.  I also host my own DVD Profiler based websites, so that base is covered as well.

There's another way.  Host your own phpDVDProfiler based websites.  Below are the websites for my Blu-ray and DVD collections.  The profile data is actually from the same database.  Could just as well be from separate databases though.  In fact, it used to be.

My Blu-ray Collection
My DVD Collection

A phpDVDProfiler based website is more feature rich than what Invelos provides and is a true representation of your local database, both your local profile data and cover art.  Surprised more people haven't gone this route.

The outer packaging still represents the particular movie.  How many layers you have to peel back to get to the disc(s) is beside the point.  How each of those layers is represented is beside the point.  If the given SKU represents a single movie title for instance I don't see the point in not including all the data for that movie under the parent profile, irrespective of whether it's decided to include child profiles as well.  If you want to have to drill down to a child profile before you can see the cast/crew details knock yourself out.  I don't see what's accomplished using that approach, but to each his own.

Hi,

quick update: I'm currently not @home. I haven't forgotten you guys but I don't know when I'll be able to fix it.

Do you take donations?  I'd like to contribute towards your continued support of the application.


Here is a link to Karsten's tools - directly under the list of his programs are 2 links - 1 for dollars and 1 for euros - that allow you to make a donation:

Same here.  I'm running 2.1.4.3 and am finding the same.  Tried a TV season just now.  Crew works.  Cast doesn't.  For the Cast all I'm getting is the episode dividers.  No other data.

On a related note...
I encountered the same issue with the IMDB import function of My Movies.  An updated DLL file was provided which resolves the issue.  The updated DLL file can be found here for anyone that also uses My Movies. (I browse and initiate playback of my DVD's and Blu-ray's using My Movies for Windows Media Center.  Aside from that I have no use for My Movies.  DVD Profiler continues to run point when it comes to cataloging my collection.  There is no substitute!)

Look over how the options are set under your Collection Categories.

Or don't even involve the cloud.  Cut out the middleman.  Create a new database from the mobile app using the "Connect to DVD Profiler for PC" option then sending and receiving changes between the two locally (Local IP) or when on-the-go (WAN IP).  If you want to view or update your collection as seen online that can always be done separately from DVD Profiler for PC.

Is anyone else having issues at the moment with Cast/Crew Edit 2?  Once I perform a search for something and attempt to scan the given page it fails.  Getting the below.

"Incorrect URL!
URL is incorrect! Please use an URL of the form http://www.imdb.com/titles/tt0000000/."

I used the application quite a bit earlier today.  No issues earlier.  Something going on with IMDB.com perhaps?  Thanks in advance.

Figured it out.  Been a long day I guess.  When performing a search and selecting a given title the URL that populates to be scanned is for whatever reason using "https" rather than "http".  Using "http" instead the given scan is successful.

Is anyone else finding these 4.0x builds particularly annoying on iOS 11?  I've got an iPhone 6 Plus running iOS 11.2.5 now (...prior I was running iOS 8.4.1) and am finding all sorts of issues with DVD Profiler for iOS 4.04 which I sync with my local DVD Profiler 4.0.0 Build 1762.  Time permitting over the next day or two I'll post back outlining the various issues I'm encountering, screenshots included.

With 4.0.3 I can't update my collection connecting to DVD Profiler for PC. The connection always breaks up.

Am I the only one having this problem? The app is unusable.

I've got this running on several apple devices (...a couple iPhone 6 plus, iPhone 8 plus and iPads).  No issues at all performing a database update whether I'm doing so locally or over the Internet.

Yeah, must be an iOS 11 issue then.  Hopefully the powers that be are monitoring this thread and will have the issue addressed with the next update.

From another thread on this same issue.  See below.  Sounds like 4.03 has addressed this.
