You're not supposed to use other sources directly, though of course you can use such other sources to see where the actor is in the movie.


Except for: "If there are no credits, the film's official site may be used as a source."

The question then is if these actors taken from an offical source should be marked as uncredited.

Just noticed that the last DVD I purchased is from 2017 and the last one before that from 2014. Do you still buy them or is it blu-rays only now?

I don't know how this could happen, but then I never use a direct connection for syncing. I keep my phone and desktop collections in sync with the online collection. It looks like most of your collection is still available online so can't you just restore it from there?

The "bug" is still present in Windows 10 release 2004 (aka May 2020 update). DiscIDs are still reported correctly with AnyDVD running.
The Lady Vanishes, Criterion #3 (UPC 037429122129)
DiscID read without AnyDVD: 75CAF101823A9417 [UNDEFINED]
DiscID read with AnyDVD (which also matches the id stored online): 5F81EE6FBB60CC21 [UNDEFINED]

I only know of Gemini Man which is 60 fps on 4K but 24 fps on blu-ray.

The problem is, you can't enter the Disc ID manually into DVD Profiler...


That was not the intention. Apparently, AnyDVD is able to "hijack" the Windows system call seamlessly, which another utility should also be able to do.

Someone with programming skills ought to be able to create a free utility that reads the disc ids the old way, for those who don't own AnyDVD.

Not sure what your issues with Apple phones are - you don't need to buy them.

And I love the program, that's why I bought it on Windows and then for iOS.

I really would love to use it for several more years and would be willing to pay again, or subscribe to it or whatever, if it would've been continously supported. But there isn't any. No bug fixing on existing versions (Windows version from 2017, iOS 2018), no new ones either, no further development. That's what I think is very sad because it was a fantastic program that cannot be easily replaced.


I have no problem with the fruit company, I own stock in it. 

And the same goes for Android phones. In fact they will usually become obsolete and unsupported quicker than Apple phones. Even so I prefer them over iPhones.

My point was only that whatever you buy, at some point it will become obsolete and unsupported. Same thing with DVD Profiler. But considering the service I've been getting all these years I don't have an issue with that, sad as it may be. I think I've already got my money's worth, and then some.

How do you decide what to buy/upgrade to 4K?

I've worked out my own order of priority since I don't want to end up rebuying all my stuff (again).

1. Completely new titles or old titles that I don't hold previously on any format.
2. Titles I only own on DVD.
3. Titles that have significantly superior 4K releases over the blu-ray. Usually this means "true" 4K titles restored from film and not any 2K digital upscales but other factors such as audio formats and special features may play into this as well.
4. I guess there shouldn't really be any lower priority than 3 but sometimes I will accept an upgrade of a favorite title even if the conditions in 3 is not met.
5. No.

Finally some good deals on 4K discs in Sweden, I picked up these 10 titles for 1000 SEK from CDON (that's less than $10 per film).

Forrest Gump
Grease
Inception
Independence Day
Life of Pi
Prometheus
The Prestige
Predator (1987)
Hook
Hellboy (2004)

Could easily have added another 10 but restraint, restraint...

DVD Profiler is only blind to parsing during an update.


Ah damn, that must be it then. I thought downloads worked the same way as updates.

Maybe the parsing was wrong at some point and I corrected it in my local database, but by doing so I accidently created two variations of the same person. I sincerely hope it's my own fault and not something I will have to watch out for. There are already enough complications creeping into my local database in the form of both good and bad birthyears...

One of them probably has the Von (von) as the middle name and the other has it as Von (von) Sydow as the last name only.


No, like I wrote, it is not a parsing issue.

So I was doing some profile surfing and discovered that my two copies of The Exorcist didn't link to the same Max von Sydow. Aha, I thought, it must be a simple case of bad parsing, you know the not getting the first/middle/last name parts correct. But no, the difference was only the "spelling" of von/Von. It has always been my understanding that updates to the local database wouldn't mess with the letter case but treat Max von Sydow and Max Von Sydow as the same person. Have I been wrong all this time?

A bit more research produced that I had mysteriously acquired four profiles with Max Von Sydow but the majority of my titles used the proper Max von Sydow.

If you have created a custom collection category for your UHD titles, make sure to tick "include contents in owned collection".

Topic Replies: 2, Topic Views: 288
No, because it seems like these people worked on the stage play and not the film.

Wow, I still have less than 40. Guess paying two or three times the price of regular blu-rays don't appeal to me much, unless it's something I really really want. Gonna buy the Star Wars OT though.

Based on is based on, so OMB. But not knowing the specifics, it could also be OCB.

For the price of a few DVDs I have used this program and apps for, oh I don't know exactly how long now but it's closing in on two decades. How's that for value?

Good luck with the phone which will be obsolete in a few years and no longer supported by the fruit company.
