Seriously? As a long time user you should know by now that our primary source for the data is the disc/film itself. But if the data is not in the film you have to take it from somewhere. Like the cover. Which might be right or wrong. If it's wrong, no problem, someone will come along and correct it eventually. So be happy that someone still contribute profiles instead of whining about trivialities.

Not sure what your stab at IMDb is about, they of course have the year right.

Just occurred to me: do you want to include streaming titles not also owned on physical media?

More and more often, I am buying some 4K titles on sale at VUDU, without the disc.


If you really think that you own something that you stream online, then be my guest!

How is the audio track listed on the disc? I would use that before anything else. Mixed tells me absolutely nothing about which languages are used. Other should only be used for languages that are not represented.

There were plans for an online version almost 10 years ago but it never happened.

No, the profile should only contain the information from the main media type, in this case the 4K BD.

A child profile for the BD is optional and doesn't affect this at all.

I'm not good at remembering names but I recognize your avatar. 

Yep, still around. Probably the only forum left from the 90s that I still visit (or still exists, after social media killed the Internet. Most of it is crap now.)

I don't collect as much as I used to for lack of time and interest, but I have started buying a few 4K titles. But only movies I didn't previously own on blu-ray. Blu-rays are "good enough" but some DVDs might be worth an upgrade.

Is it coded like that on the disc?

Otherwise I don't think we should start adding dialects and accents. Where would it stop?

Topic Replies: 5, Topic Views: 808
I would say use it if you think it helps distinguishing between different releases of the same title.

Peter Elliott is listed in the sound section, are you sure he's not a Sound Editor?

I have all of one (1) 4K Ultra HD title but I assumed the region code would indicate the "normal" blu-ray included, since it would (could) still be region coded. And if the 4K title is always region free then it goes without saying so it doesn't really matter if the profile says something else.

Well, I finally caved in and bought my first 4K Ultra HD title. In honor of my very first DVD title bought almost 19 years ago back in the autumn of 1999, it is once again The Matrix (a title I've never owned previously on Blu-ray so this is two first times for me).



Now, I just have to go and find myself a good 4K player!

We bend the rules all the time, otherwise "A Film by" credit wouldn't qualify as Director.

As has been often repeated (but not enough it seems), the rules can and will never cover every possible variation of film credits.

I wouldn't, except for:

Quote:
Exception: If a company name heads a group of crew, use the Group divider to enter the company name.


Quote:
Also use Group dividers for crew teams, included only if the crew meets the other listing requirements.


But I never quite understood the last one so I just ignore it and carry on.

Nice tool!

For additional visual verification you could also try this: Soundcard Scope

I haven't tested it on DVDs but it works well enough comparing mono and stereo tracks on Spotify, for example with The Beatles "1" (Remastered).

For older recordings you will sometimes see variations in the input signals due to channel noise but the differences are generally much smaller than for real stereo.

The main production studio is really the only studio I care about, not who paid for it.

Except none of these are genres. It's content meta data that should probably go in its own field somewhere if we want to track this.

I think genre should be limited to one field, at the most.

But the reason it went from three to five was to allow us to enter our own custom genres without having to remove any of the "official" genres. Since the custom genres are private it made no sense to increase the online fields.

A common problem with Swedish titles is that they seldom follow our general writing rules (nor do they have to). So in cases of mixed capitalisation I would be inclined to follow what's printed on the cover, especially since many times the disrespect for normal writing rules is intentional. I guess they want the titles to stand out better that way. There's also a strong influence from the English-speaking world which is often reflected in Swedish headings and titles in various printed media. In my personal database I can of course "correct" them later if I want.
