Many thanks, Gunnar!   

Thanks! Well, I've been using it quite a lot myself so I got tired of looking at its warts.
So at least now I can see some new warts (maybe) ... 

My current mission is to add Disc Info to all profiles in my collection that misses that, and at the same time I check if there is other data that needs to be added and/or updated. Lots of older profiles are missing things. Titles that not a lot of users may have, but those profiles need a bit of love, too. I have 179 titles yet to check (and that doesn't even include TV shows). 

20 years of collecting DVDs (and BDs) have landed a few odd titles in my collection.

DvdpVerify 2.0.1

Fixed a bug that could prevent proper copying of cast and crew to CastCrewCheck.

DvdpVerify 2.1.0

I took some time to rectify one of the things that bothered me the most, the display of the overview.
It now displays properly with bold, italics and paragraph breaks.

Good news, bad news. The good news is that I could do it with Microsofts webbrowser component for WPF, so we don't have to be burdened with all the support files than came with the CefSharp browser that was needed for ContribLookup.

The bad news is that Microsofts HtmlEncode function is sadly lacking, and fails to convert quite a few special characters, so I had to fix them "manually". I have tested a lot of overviews to try to see if there are any more characters that are not correctly encoded. I highly suspect that there are, so if you come across any, please let me know. Thanks!

DvdpVerify 2.1.1

Main reason for this release is that I had problems with copying cast to CastCrewCheck. The first time clicking the button that does the copy, only crew would be copied. After that, it would work fine every time. I spent many hours trying to figure out why this was. I tried timing delays in case it was a timing issue, but to no avail. I finally gave up and solved it by doing a "fake" copy before the first copy, and that solved it. I dislike work-arounds like that, but sometimes you just have to admit defeat ... 

A few other minor issues have been fixed as well.

DvdpVerify 2.2.0

Now with support for HTTPJolie! With HTTPJolie you can load a profile directly from DVD Profiler without having to go through an XML export file. Here's how:

Open Settings and check the checkbox.

If you are running DvdpVerify on the same computer as DVD Profiler, then you should get the correct IP Address by default. Otherwise enter the IP Address where DVD Profiler is running, but it's not really practical to run these programs on different machines (unless they are next to each other).

The port number defaults to 41415, which is the port that HTTPJolie used by default. Unless you have changed the port number in the settings for HTTJolie, you should not change it here.

Click OK and you'll see that the selector has changed in DvdpVerify:


You can switch back and forth between using the export file and using HTTPJolie if you like. Just check/uncheck the setting.

If you are not using HTTPJolie, then this update offers nothing new. Sorry!

DvdpVerify 3.0

This is kind of a "trifecta" update in as much as there are three programs that have something in common that are being updated. These are DvdpVerify, CastCrewCheck and ContribLookup.

In this version, DvdpVerify uses a new method to copy cast and crew to CastCrewCheck that should be more reliable than via the clipboard.

CastCrewCheck is now started immediately when DvdpVerify is started, and cast and crew is copied as soon as a profile is selected, so the two programs should always be in sync.

Furthermore, in you have ContribLookup (ver. 2.5) running, it loads the contribution notes when a profile is selected in DvdpVerify, so it is also always in sync with DvdpVerify.
