Every once in a while I upgrade an existing DVD with a Special Edition or I upgrade from DVD to Blu-ray.

And every half a year or so I decide to give away my old copies to friends and family.

I must have given away about 50 DVDs already that way.

When I'm in my give-away-mood it's a bit hard to remember which DVDs/BRs I have multiple times.

So I wrote me this little tool that scans my collection and looks for possible duplicates.

You can find it in the Plugin Downloads section.

Or here.

I have tagged my dibs for this.

Works nice!

One suggestions:
Add an option to ignore titles bought on the same day, otherwise BD/DVD-Combos show up.

Also the program finds a lot of tv-series because of the same Originaltitle, but I can't think of an easy solution for that one.

I did that, too. But I often forget to set that tag.

Can do.

I could set an option that ignore profiles with the Television genre?

I threw myself into the perils of developing an actual plugin with setup and stuff.

And here it is: version 2.0 is now a real DVDP plugin.

If anyone could test it, I'd be thankful.

eh ... FindDoubleDips.zip is 449KB of size and contains a folder FindDoubleDips which holds a number of DLLs and stuff but no installer?

Thanks for the great plug-in Karsten!  Could have also done the same thing with my Database Query plug-in. But options are never a bad thing.
Get the CSVExport and Database Query plug-ins here.
