Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, they say.

Well, I'm not quite that sincere, but this is a tool that is heavily inspired by DJ Doena's plugin Find Double Dips. So why did I bother to write such a similar tool? Well, there are a few reasons:

- I wanted to be able to select and position the columns in the result.
- I wanted to be able to find duplicates that had production years mismatched by one year.
- I wanted a tool that didn't lock up Profiler.
- I wasn't satisfied with my previous attempt, which is part of ProfilerQuery.

So, here it is:


The main window after a "normal" run.


When searching for mismatched production years.


The column selection window.

As usual, this tool uses an exported collection file as its starting point.
Do read the help file for more info.

You can download version 1.0.0 from here.

DoubleDips 1.1.0

This is for those of you that have PAL DVDs. I have added an option to recalculate the runtime for those DVDs by adding 4% to compensate for the PAL speedup, in order to make the runtimes comparable to Bluray and NTSC DVDs. Recalculated runtimes are displayed in parenthesis.

DoubleDips 2.0

Version 1 had a nasty bug, and lacked some features that I thought it needed, so I rewrote it from scratch. It doesn't look much different at first glance, but it is faster and better, and it has printing facility.

If you're looking to get rid of some DVDs that you have upgraded to Blu-ray (or Blu-ray to 4K, or whatever), then this will help.

If you're wondering about the statistics, the reason that DoubleDip profiles is more than DoubleDipped titles is that some titles have been "dipped" more than once (like "20 Million Miles to Earth" in the illustration). 653 double dips? Yikes!    Maybe I should spend more time culling my collection, and less time developing software than no one but me seems to be interested in ... 

PS the printing subsystem is supposed to be able to print in color. It doesn't. At least not for me. I blame Syncfusion. Not that I consider it a great loss in this case. And I guess I can't complain too much since I don't have to pay Syncfusion for using their datagrid.

I am always impressed to see the "HTTPJolie available" banner on your tools. You have taken advantage of my efforts in a way beyond my wildest dreams when I wrote that plugin. I thank you for that.

To make sure I understand, when used with DoubleDips, the benefit to the user is that they are not required to manage an XML export?
Thanks for your support.

No, I only use HTTPJolie here for selecting profiles in DVD Profiler when the user double-clicks a row. I contemplated reading the data directly via HTTPJolie, but decided that it would be too slow. So, limited use here, but I find HTTPJolie immensely useful in other applications. It opens up so many possibilities.
