Regarding folder structure, I take advantage of the fact that if you use the pre-defined DVDP scheme, everything you put in there is saved and restored by DVDP automatically.

If you want to play with it, let me know if you find something that works for you. Then if I add Trailer and Playlist path settings, you can change them if / when DVDP supports saving those items.

I am aware of the backup advantage, but personally I don't care - I do backups of my documents folder anyway.
But it would be much easier to maintain playlists, when they are stored in their own folder.

And if you add an option to a 'Playlist folder', it's default path can still be ScenePhotos.

Hmmm, the DVD Cast / Crew was intended to work the way you want it to I think. I even put code in to extract the path from shortcuts so that you can save space and not need to store multiple copies of pictures in folders representing aliases of a cast / crew member.

Here is my CreditPhotos folder. I do not have any DVDP credit photos for "House of Flying Daggers", but when I use the Slideshow for Displayed DVD Cast and Crew, the lovely Zhang Zhi is displayed in all her glory based on a match from the Cast / Crew and either a folder or picture found in CreditPhotos. Isn't this what you want?

Are the pictures 'Okonedo_Sophie_.jpg' and 'Theron_Charlize_.jpg' shown on attached profiles?

I don't have a single sub-folder in this folder. It looks like this:

And I don't see any of these photos.

Just to check: I'm not talking about headshots stored in the database! I don't have those. All my cast / crew photos are stored in the 'CreditPhotos' folder.

Well that was what I intended, and the way it seems to be working for me.

Here is a screen shot of my slideshow for Aeon Flux , showing photos being picked up from CreditPhotos and ScenePhotos (not head shots).

I'm not sure what the disconnect is. Maybe a bug in my actor name parsing???

By the way, the fun thing about the folders is that you can stuff a bunch of pictures of your favorite actors in it. So long as the folder name matches the artist name, all the photos inside the folder are added to the slideshow, regardless of how they are named.
Thanks for your support.

Ah, I see. You have the pictures inside a subfolder:
\CreditPhotos\Theron_Charlize_\Theron_Charlize_.jpg

But DVD Profiler expects these pictures without this subfolder:
\CreditPhotos\Theron_Charlize_.jpg

And that's how I stored my pictures.

Well actually I have both, so the fact that they are being found in the folder was masking that the ones outside are not. I consider it a bug, so it will be fixed.

So in summary, thanks to your efforts, I will make the following changes:

- Fix menu typos
- Add Playlist Path option to Media Player
- Add Load playlists by Profile ID menu
- Fix bug in finding images in CreditPhotos

Is that it, at least so far?

Whew! 

It might be awhile. I realize the risk is that you will add even more  to the list ...

But I prefer that somebody is using and loving the program. I appreciate your feedback.

I admit, there's a risk - but right now I don't see anything else I could put on the list.

LoadDVD Pro V2.51 Available

Due to a mistake in setting compile options, LoadDVD Pro V2.50 was not installing correctly.

This release has no functional changes. Apologies to StaNDarD for taking so long to nail this. Both LoadDVD and LoadDVD Pro had the same bug, and both have been updated to V2.51.

Now that I've gotten past that, I will start the next series of upgrades, and I will try to include as many of the ones you mentioned as I can. Thanks for your patience.

Download link isn't working for me (http://www.mediadogg.com/myfiles/loaddvdinstallv2.50.zip) which is still calling out and pointing to the 2.50 download.  Tried hitting up "http://www.mediadogg.com/myfiles/loaddvdinstallv2.51.zip" instead and that isn't working either. 

(Meant to post this in the LoadDVD thread.  Sorry.)

Doh!  Blonde moment there.  Should have thought to do that.  Forced the page to refresh.  Good to go now.  Just downloaded 2.51 without issue.  Thanks!

Really curious how it goes. I'm pulling my hair out. Now all of a sudden, it is no longer installing on my own machine. I'm about ready to call GhostBusters.

Now all Ok. I think my laptop does have ghosts ... (or is it my brain?)

I'm finally making some changes.

On Load Trailers by Profile ID, do you want:

- upc.locality.trailer name.ext
- upc.trailer name.ext

- both???

Edit: No time to wait, so I coded both plus "formatted upc.trailer name.ext".

Fir example, these all work:

4942463602307.17.trailer.mp4
4942463602307.trailer.mp4
4-942463-602307.trailer.mp4
