A new version has been sent to alpha testers : alpha 0.03

The main goal of this version is to check the import speed.
The database version is not implemented yet.
When starting, the application checks for the date/time of the collection.xml file. If it is more recent than the imported one, it asks for importing.
You can also force the import by going in settings&tools, with optionaly clearing the db before import.
All DVDs (and bluRays of course) are marked as 'deleted'. Then for each entry in collection.xml the profile timestamp is check. if different, the DVD is deleted (if existing) and (re)created. If timestamps are equal, the 'deleted' flag is removed.
When done, marked dvd entries are deleted (to go faster). To remove unused actors/credits/..., go to settings&tools and choose 'pack database'.

Please report me times for Import, Import with 'clear database' checked, pack database. Don't forget to tell me your database size (in # of entries) and if you include all actors/credit or limited them.

Thank you for your help.

Sorry for the inconvenience. There is a bug in the startup of the application. I've made a mix in the source for this DB and the previous one. A fix will be sent tomorrow, and will include database version.

Welp got a new APK this morning, looks like stuff was fixed.

The imported of almost 1000 profiles with a max of 10 actors per went very fast, I would say less than 5 minuets.

Sort works A-Z and 0+

the Image pan/zoom works well.

I would say outside of more sort features or adding categories and or wish list scanning  this seems like a very solidprogram at this point. I think it needs a desk top component for keeping up with image files but that shoudl be a fairly small task.

Here are some screens from this morning :













Thanks !

Installed new version, loaded up fine.  my import of 626, took about 2 min. on my Galaxy S2.  Everything I looked seemed to work no problem.  I would not mind seeing a different view instead of just a list.  A thumbnail only view would be nice, with the covers maybe double the size from the list view.  Also a way to filter the list, Like only show Blu Rays.  Finally a dream feature would be to scan a bar code in the store and the app telling me if I own it.  I know we have all bought a back catalog disk only to go home and find out that we already own it.

To err is human. Not me. On the other hand I do not have a large collection.

Importing 736 profiles (owned only, only movie profiles) with full cast & crew and I'm happy to say that it's importing MUCH faster at a very satisfactory speed.

Thanx for reporting guys.

Do you think I have to investigate in other import method or is it fast enough ? Do you prefer to use a soft on the PC that will build the DB file and then just copy it on device to go faster or just update on the device ? I still have no answer for access to the plugin dev section, so I'm still locked with collection.xml 

Cheers,

Olivier

Speed wise, it's sufficient for importing. Bit clunky with the manual steps but that's to be expected and not held against you. My only recommendation is figuring out a way to skip the UTF-8 conversion.

If you provided a database format, I'm sure one of the plugin develpers would build you a little plugin - to get you started. Or, at least to output the XML already in UTF-8? I think the instant export guy could probably do that easily. If you think I could help in any way, PM me. I have already 3 Android devices, so I will be using your tool I'm sure.

Here is another idea: Go ahead and create a standalone utility
- make it do whatever you want (e.g. build a DB directly)
- use C#, Net 2.0
- keep the dialog simple
- start with XML

When you get it working and stable, you might by then already have gotten your authorization to use the API
- then put in the plugin scaffoldng
- add a new menu option to load from API instead of XML
- and if you don't get the API soon enough, I will offer to do this step for you when you are ready, and I can support the plugin until you are authorized.  (if another author wants to do this instead - its OK - I just want help make it happen)
Thanks for your support.

Hey Mediadogg - I was thinking of you for testing on a tablet :D

That's awesome that you are willing to help him out!

mediadogg : thank you for your help. I'm using a sqlite DB on the device, so I'll be able to find any title by actor, credit, etc... I made some tries with SQLite & .net on PC, and the DB seems to be compatible. Maybe it can be the solution. But working with collection.XML can be easier because if I change the DB structure, only the program changes, not the plugin. The choice is hard

Understood. Best wishes for your success.
BTW, what tool or package are you using to write Android apps? Someday I would like to learn how to do that. I was surprised to see that things like SQLite are available there. Sounds cool.

I'm using Eclipse and downloaded the android plugins. I'm quite new to android dev (used to make pocketpc with .net and c++).

BTW : do you know which in which database system is stored the collection ? when writing a plugin, do you have access to the DB and read tables ?

Thanx.
