For technical reasons I can not update profiles directly into the program.

But I have been able to download the profile list as well as headshot updates.
So I should be able to download updated profiles files to my phone and then transfer them to my computer and then do a restore of that profile.

So, first I would like to test if this is possible if someone could link me to a profile dpb file.

Test profile.
Wonder Woman including covers.

Thanks

I don't think it can work this way.

When DVDProfiler downloads a profile it fetches a .doi file - not a dpb (and this makes sense, since the dpb file contains much more information but the downloadable part of a single profile: structures, personal information, etc.).

Esample for a German Wonder Woman profile:
http://www.invelos.com/AppData/DVDPro/data/50/5051890309655.5.doi

Similar for the covers:

One should be able to flag a profile, create a backup of that profile and upload it to a site for download.

Yes, that's what I used to publish headshots for instance... But this is not the file format which is used by DVD profiler for internal purposes...

I just tried it by flagging a profile, backing up that flagged profile, then opening up another database and restored that flagged profile into that database.
It worked fine.

If nobody wants to help, then I guess I just have to live with many blank profiles.

May I ask what technical reasons prevent you from updating a profile?

If you can provide a dpb file with all your (empty) profiles in it, I could restore this file on a test machin, update all profiles and send it back.

Interested?

Trying to follow with my feeble brain - you want:

(1) Give us a list of Profile IDs
(2) Then we create saved profiles and put them somewhere accessible to your phone.
(3) Then you download onto your phone.
(4) Then using USB or Bluetooth, you put them on your computer for installation in your database.

Is that it? If so, why not go ahead and post the UPCs, and people can claim them and provide URL.

If not, maybe I'm not the only one confused about what you need.

Ah, I see you already got an offer. Go for it!!!

I'll take the first batch unless somebody else has started.

I notice that they are all UPCs or Locality 0 (USA) Profile IDs. Is this what you want?

Without a given dpb file it would take forever to get the profiles compiled together...

Does anybody know a method to create a database out of UPC codes?

First batch is almost done.

Yes, it is easy.

(1) Put all the UPCs into a text file, one UPC per line (cut and paste from the post and delete the titles)
(2) Open a new database, with whatever name
(3) Add DVDs to Collection
(4) Add Multiple
(5) Upper left icon - load UPC file
(6) Add Now

Answer yes to load child profiles
10 minutes (or less) done

Backup the small temporary database

Yes, USA region profiles.

First batch done. Sent PM with a link to CubbyUpsBatch1.dpb.

It was done without a lot of cross checking, so let me know if I missed any. The advantage of using Drop Box, is that there is a free app that makes it easy if you can't do it from the browser.

@AiAustria, want to try the next batch?
