I remember a little girl stabbing her male protector. He (and the audience) were shocked.
Spoiler:  (Select to view)

It was either Netflix "The 100" or Hunger Games, or there was one other in my mind ...

She stabbed him in the neck, I think with a weapon he gave her (???). Does that ring any bells?

Thanks. It was my attempt to follow that post, that got me where I am. Maybe I clicked on the incorrect registry entry. Don't know. But I'm hoping that the software engineer assigned by the Corporate Office will help me get it resolved.

I uninstalled the RAD Studio, rebooted my PC and have attempted to download the Community Edition, but somehow the installer continues to recognize the RAD Studio Trial license. I get a message saying that CE cannot coexist. I will contact their support to see if it can be resolved.

Continuing to have problems. Apparently RAD Studio leaves a bunch of directories, registry entries and DLLs lying around, even after uninstall. Now Support won't talk to me, not even to help me manually uninstall the remnants. So I can't run anything now, and my machine is "tainted" with the remnants of a sloppy uninstall process. Guess if something seems too good to be true, it usually is, as they say. I was hoping to give them a try, but now they have really ticked me off.

Just got in touch with Corporate. They are assigning an engineer to work with me. Impressive!

Was wondering how I can remove Collection # from Child Profiles all at one if possible. 

There are probably serveral ways, as is often the case with DVD Profiler.

One way I know about is to use the BulkEdit plugin.

BulkEdit adds, among others, the following menus to the "Flagged" menu:

- Flag Child Profiles
- Clear Collection #

So, you would first flag the parents of the box sets in question, then use "Collection>Flagged>Flag Child Profiles," which automatically clears the Parent flag, then "Collection>Flagged>Clear Collection #".

If you don't normally use BulkEdit, afterwards you should disable or uninstall it, as it does have a performance impact on DVD Profiler.

Thanks. There is no CE for RAD Studio.

Sorry but I do not understand.
Rad studio is still present (whether you download the CE cbuilder or Delphi CE).
Of course it is not as complete as the paid version of 3000 USD, but a reduced version is present and allows you to encode in C ++ or delphi.
For trial I uninstalled everything and reinstalled again.
I tried to make a simple application for windows, and then without any changes (I simply changed the target) I tried to compile it for the phone, and in addition to compile it, I transferred and installed directly on the phone.
During the installation (of Cbuilder CE or delphi CE) it asks you if you want to install also the necessary to create android applications, OS X etc ...

I am sure that it is I who does not understand. In fact, I sent a note to the guy who was emailing me about the license, and here is his direct email reply:
Quote:

"Hi there,

The CE edition is for C++ Builder and Delphi only.  RAD Studio comes with both of those products but you can't get a CE edition of RAD Studio.  The 5k/year revenue restriction is correct.  Please let me know if I can assist you in getting a paid license at any point.

Have a great morning"


Maybe you got grandfathered in on a previous deal. Anyway, I will follow your lead and see if it works for me.

Maybe "cross-platform" is available, even without what they call "RAD Studio." If so, that would be great.

Thanks again.

But did you download the Comunity version?

As for the phone calls, never received one (also because I did not put the correct number        )
For emails, one a day the first times, now once a week (if they bother you create a rule to move or trash them)

Thanks. There is no CE for RAD Studio.

Most useful discussion I have seen in awhile. Looking into CBuilder. Before I "Retire," I would like to try a cross platform project. Looks like an interesting way to go.


Happy for your words.
Believe me, it's a really good product.
It is a true RAD environment.
Furthermore, by simply changing the target, you can create the same application on Windows, IOS, Android, OS X.
I use Cbuilder (c++), but there is also the version for delphi (always free for personal and commercial use. If you exceed 5000 USD of profit, then you have to buy the license).

I downloaded the whole package, not realizing that the cross-platform part, RAD Studio is not free. I started getting phone calls and several emails a day trying to sell the license after trial. It is a great system, but I can't afford it. I unsubscribed from the notices, and I will play with it until the trial runs out. I do appreciate finding out about it.

Why would Invelos react to this? DJ Doena's CastCrewEdit had done the same from IMDb for years without any reaction.

They haven't been reacting to much of anything lately, sadly. I didn't mean that they would necessarily be opposed. Notice DJ Doeana's caveat:

That's more along what I meant. I was curious if that rule is still is being "enforced" or whether anybody cares. I for one, do not. Oh, and Mamo, please do not for a moment interpret my question as a criticism of your good work.

Thanks, every new tool for DVDP, which seems like abandonware these days, is welcome. I will play around with it on the weekend and post some feedback then. Of course, a greenie is on the way 

Well, if there is any Invelos staff still around, this tool will certainly get their attention. Will be interesting to see what, if anything, will be the response.

Greenie for the effort. Just not sure how it will play with Invelos ...

In case anyone comes across this old thread:
It is possible to have the color of the primary genre displayed as the background if that condition is checked.  The current condition check for "genre contains" and this not always result in the primary genre color being shown.  If The "Primary genre is equal to" condition is checked then that color will be selected.  I did discover that it was necessary to select Genres from the Film tab as an item in order for the Primary condition check to work.  After choosing this item I made it 1 pixel by 1 pixel and located it it 2 pixels off the top and left so it wouldn't be visible.

Clever!!!

It's back!  Thanks media!  I'm starting to think that a re-install after backup might not be a bad idea.

It might just be a layout issue. If it is, then perhaps you could avoid a complete re-install. But I'm not sure about that ...

I would focus in ANY changes that have been made to your system since last week, when things were working. Anything: windows update, new program installed, new DVDP plugin, whatever. More often that not, it was something that recently changed.

@jfrench, you have lost the menu item. If you want it back, right click on the DVD tab and select customize.

When the customization dialogue comes up, click on the DVD menu, scroll down to Select by UPC, and then drag and drop the menu item to anywhere you want it - ideally on the same menu tab that GSyren expects it. Then you should be good to go.

DVDPca V2.10 Available

- Improved accuracy in detecting available audio formats
- Various bug fixes and error recovery
- Updated to be consistent with current DVD Profiler naming for audio formats and industry naming conventions. In some cases a conversion is needed (I have even seen errors in some DVD metadata)
- Improved installation script automatically deletes old versions
- Plugin API updated to latest version
- Verified operation on Windows 10 and Net 4.0
- Use of DVDFab Passport is recognized in lieu of AnyDVD

Random testing with a bunch of DVDs and BluRays from my collection have indicated a high level of accuracy (based on visual check of the audio setup menu and/or Cyberlink PowerDVD).

Reminder: One of the advantages of DVDPca, is that it scans the entire disc, all folders, in order to scrape metadata required for a contribution. If you have a disc that is not yet in the Online database, DVDPca can actually build a starter profile in minutes. Some discs even have a bit of cast/crew information - rare, but I grab it, if I see it.

Note: The standalone version of DVDPca is no longer included in the package.

Ok, I am finding mostly good correspondence, but I just hit one that will make it relatively easy for me to sort out bugs. The IFO scan shows all tracks and languages, dead equal and the same as the profile in DVDP. But my GUI drop downs are blank. Clearly a bug there. But it shows that the hard part is correct - the IFO parsing. The mono channels, in this case, were Commentary. Little Miss Sunshine, 024543403319, US.

Never mind everybody regarding examples. The nose on my face got in the way of the obvious.

A simple filter search on my own collection, identified a whole bunch of DVDs and BDs with MONO audio tracks. I will just run a few through DVDPca and compare what it finds to the existing DVDP profiles. If I find a difference, I wil examine the code and the actual IFO bits.

For what it's worth: All discs I looked at, whether 1 or 2 channels, were identified as AC3 by DVDPca. But that was only maybe half a dozen discs, so that could be just coincidence.

Barring a good way to display channel difference (l-r), it still seems to me that an educated guess is the best way to identify 2-channel mono. Not sure how well that would fare with voters/scanners though.

I was going to say that I do have several 1 channel discs, bur the problem would be to find them.
But now that AiAustria has provided an example maybe I don't have to?
If you need further examples, mediadogg, I can certainly take a look.

Not sure how to interpret this. If you used some 1 channel discs, then you obviously could find them.  What did I miss?

Thanks, let me start with that one. But if DVDPca already reports mono, I don't need to ...

Note to AiAustria, Thanks, but I need all the IFOs. Is that the only one?

I'll take a look anyway, but it would be interesting also to know: what does a DVD player say?

I just looked at the profile. Both tracks are "Dolby Digital - Mono".

I will be very eager to see the actual bits in the metadata!
