You highlight the word cast within the displayed page. The word crew would be interesting too.

... and, I for myself use the word credits as synonym for cast/crew...

Yeah. Unfortunately the browser component only allows one search string at a time, so I chose "cast" as the one that I thought was the most likely to find the data of interest.

ContribLookup 2.1.0

OK, the new version is ready for all of you. If you already have a previous version of ContribLookup installed, there is a much smaller download with just the updated files.

Enjoy!

Darn it! A bug snuck in during the last fixes and I didn't catch it. 
A fix is imminent!

"I'll just fix one last thing. It's such a small thing that surely it can't cause any problems. No need to go through a full test, just a few profiles."

All right, I'll sit in the shame corner. I should have known better! 

Anyway, version 2.1.1 is tested a bit better, so I do hope I haven't screwed up anything else.
Just be aware of the limitation in the "sloppy copy" (as it is called in the help file). If you happen to copy exactly 16 characters that are not a Disc Id, ContribLookup will think that it is just that, a Disc Id.

Edit: Yeah! I did screw up something else - the download link in this post. But maybe you realized that it's the same link as in the previous posts. I just put it in for every version just for convenience. And look how well that worked!    Anyway, fixed now!

Best I go to bed now before I manage to f*ck up even more!

ContribLookup 2.2.0

New features:
      - Improved scan algorithm for faster scan of all localities.
      - A new menu item in the Browser menu: Show Only Checked Items.
      - A count of checked items shown at the bottom of the list in the Browser tab.
      - A gridsplitter between the list and the browser that lets you resize them.

The improved algorithm divides the localities in 3 groups, North America, Europe and the rest or the world. It scans the groups in that order, and if a match (or matches) is found in a group the scan stops there. I guess it is technically possible, but highly unlikely, that the same ID exists in different "continents", but it's a limitation I am willing to live with with.

Sugestion for Improvement:

Getting a UPC/EAN takes many mouse clicks/Keystrokes. Copying a DVD from DVD profiler is done with two clicks.

It would be great, if the program would detect a complete DVD (CSV) in the clipboard and extract the UPC/EAN...

Not sure if I understand what you mean. If it is DVD/Copy from the menu in Profiler, then that really doesn't yield any useful information on the clipboard.

If you want to get the contribution notes for a specific profile in your collection, you can either right-click the View Contributors button, or if you want it opened in ContribLookup use Alt-DU,Ctrl-C and switch to ContribLookup.

That doesn't work with the German translation, unfortunately, because the translator hasn't implemented any keyboard shortcuts, so if you're using that you would have to select DVD/Change UPC with the mouse, then copy the ID and switch to ContribLookup.

You can copy a UPC/EAN/DiscId from anywhere and switch to ContribLookup. If it's a valid ID it should get pasted inte the search field automatically.

Sorry, my bad. Thought DVDProfiler puts the data into the clipboard (as seen with cast and crew data). But realized, that it only puts a pointer into the clipboard.

ContribLookup 2.3.0

I thought I had the Intervocative lookup working because I actually found a couple of profiles, but it turned out to be a mistake. 
So I have corrected that, and now it really works.

I have also added a filter to the Browser list, so you can filter on title name if you're looking for a certain title in a long list.

ContribLookup has been updated to version 2.4.0. This is mainly in order to work together with ProfilerQuery (see this post).

But I have also fixed the context menu since I learned how to do that for BirthyearCheck.
