Hi,
    I've not used DVDProfiler for some years and decided to revisit it. I've downloaded the Windows app (I see that regrettably, the Android app is no longer available) and noticed that its downloading a number of  .dod files. These appear to be either encrypted or binary and I can't open  them - is it a proprietary (DVDProfiler) format file? or is there anything else I can use to see what it contains?. I'm reluctant to let any app download any file which may contain potentially executable code.

Thank You
Anthony

These files contain a compressed listing of all titles that are in the online database, and they are used to list the matching titles when you add titles, so that DVD Profiler doesn't have to scan the online database for that info (which would have been very much slower). They have always been a part of DVD Profiler and if they had contained executable code someone (or some virus protection program) would have found out about that long ago.

Thank you for the reply, so its a proprietary file format. You'll excuse my caution regarding the format and nature of unknown files, its based on 40 years of employment in IT, and having been a programmer my self I'm well aware how easy it is to hide malicious code in seeming innocuous file such as photos...
