After I finished my own database with Cast/Crew Edit 2 I wanted to check if everything went as expected since I was constantly improving the program while working with it.

Thus I written a small add-on if you will that checks the data of DVD Profiler against what's in the Cast/Crew Edit 2 cache file. This way it's also possible to find Birth Years that have been added while downloading profiles but aren't in the Cache file - which can lead to inconsistencies.

Check out (and beware of my lengthy names ) Compare DVD Profiler XML and Cast/Crew Edit 2 Cache

Fantastic. I was thinking of how best to do this w/o actually going through and re-doing all of the profiles again with the latest iteration of your awesome program. Many thanks 

So, we export our DB to xml then run this new app against it, correct ?

I saw you had a "check for duplicates in cache" program also. Guess I missed that one before

Did IMDb change how they store their birthyears? I'm not having much luck pulling them. I am using the latest version.

Dolly's not alone. You can also clone profiles.

No, thank you!

This is an awesome program. It makes this entire process much, much easier by a magnitude of I don't know how much. The number of hours of work you're saving me is astounding. Thanks!

Cast/Crew Edit 2 is now able to download trivia for a movie. You have to enable it via the settings.

If you're not interested in Cast & Crew but only in the Trivia, you can disable parsing of Cast & Crew - also in the settings.

The path as usual: http://doena-soft.de/dvdprofiler/index_en.php#CastCrewEdit2

Just when I think this program can't get any better... 

I have not tested it (or even upgraded from 3.51 yet), but does the latest beta use the same xml import format as 3.51 (making it possible to use the same format to add cast/crew to a profile in 3.6) ?

Thanks

I like this plugin very much. Thanks DJ
Unfortunately, I can't use DVDprofiler at the moment due to lack of a Windows computer.

It's basically the same and should work but as soon as 3.6 becomes final, all my tools will switch to the new XML format(s) (with the new fields they contain) and I will release a new version.

The XML format of the new version 3.6.0 seems to have become stable, so I released a new version compatible with DVD Profiler 3.6.0. As always, it can be found under http://doena-soft.de/dvdprofiler/index_en.php.

Where does the program store it's settings? Somehow it wants to put everything in a /data/data/data folder, and in settings I can't change it. Not even when I select the browse button to point it to a other location. I (de-) installed the plugin, but it keeps pointing to the same wrong directory.

Check the Windows registry under

Key: HKEY_Current_User\Software\Doena Soft.\CastCrewEdit2
Entry: DataRoot

If you remove that entry then the program will look into the "Data" folder in the directory where you put the CastCrewEdit2.exe.

Thanks. Yes, that does help.

I was looking for something called 'Doena', but couldn't find anything. Trying this.

Thanks.

Karsten,
I do get no trivia data with Cast/Crew Edit 2 for some time now. Checkbox is ticked, but trivia field stays empty on titles which have trivia available in the IMDB.
Any suggestions?

Again, thanks for your great plugins.

Thx. Since I don't personally use that feature I didn't notice it stopped working. New version is available here.
