A bit long, but not unheard of. I wouldn't worry too much.

I've fixed it for you - I've submitted a contribution changing this to 'Salem's Lot'. There's nothing strange going on here, except the profile used the wrong kind of apostrophe. Invelos's title capitalization filter only works with the ' but not with ’ - and it's the latter character that was used in the title of that profile. Once you correct that to the normal apostrophe, it all works as it should.

Isn't the fact that you actually made a change that wasn't just capitalization the reason that the contribution could be made, rather that it being the wrong apostrophy?

TmdbTvShowCheck can now work together with EpisodeCheck!

See this post!

EpisodeCheck + TmdbTvShowCheck = True!



Sorry that the video is a bit fuzzy, bit it shows how quick and easy it is to import episode data into EpisodeCheck with the help of TmdbTvShowCheck.

Initially I had planned to include the functionality for getting episode data directly into EpisodeCheck, but then I realized it would be much easier to just make the two programs work together.

You'll need to update both programs. EpisodeCheck 1.8.0 and TmdbTvShowCheck 1.4.0.

No comments (just one greenie), so I guess the improved showcase is not something that I need to put any work into. Not totally unexpected, but a little disappointing. So this test is now abandoned.

A taste of things to come - maybe

WhenI try something that's new to me in programming - new techniques, new components, etc - I often write a small test project to see if it works and is suitable for whatever I have in mind. These test projects usually gets scrapped when I am done.

I wasn't pleased with the Showcase tab in ProfilerQuery, but at the time I didn't know how to make it more like the Showcase in iOS Profiler for iPad. But recently I found a component that seemed to fit the bill. So I wrote a test program.

But when I was done I thought "Yeah, that's nice, but it over 1000 lines of code. ProfilerQuery is already complicated. Do I really want to add all this. And it's a fair bit of work adapting the test code into PQ."

So I thought I'd let you have a say. Here's how the test program looks right now:



You can scroll through the entire collection. You can set watched titles to be faded (I got that idea from Letterboxd). You can select to show unwatched titles only. You can double click to go to the title in DVD Profiler. You can right click to select Properties:



Want to try it for yourself? Here it is.

As it stands, you don't have a whole lot of options to select profiles. You can load flags from DVD Profiler, so you can run queries in ProfilerQuery, save the result as flags, and then load them in this program. It would obviously be a lot easier to have it inside ProfilerQuery.

I currently still consider DvdpShowcase a test program. I offer no support for it, and no promise of any further development.

Do you think that this functionality should be incorporated into ProfilerQuery? If so, let me know!

ProfilerQuery 3.32.0
Two minor enhancements:
- Export files can now be dragged and dropped into ProfilerQuery to open them.
- The Tools menu has a new menu item: Export collection.

If you use ProfilerQuery regularly, you have probably created a command file to help export your collection. If you haven't, see the ProfilerQuery help file for instructions. It's easy.

Now it is even easier to export your collection. You just have to specify your command file in the Settings in ProfilerQuery, and then you can just select Tools/Export collection and ProfilerQuery will send the necessary keystrokes to DVD Profiler to run your command file.

NOTE: If you are using a translated version of DVD Profiler, there are a couple of registry entries that need to be modified.
PM me and tell me which translation you are using, and I'll help you fix it.

Had a similar thread a few months ago.

If the release itself lists them as interview I would still choose Other as audio track and Interview in the features section.

Dang it! I had totally forgotten that thread. I must be getting old. 
I agree with T!M about using "Other" just for unlisted languages.
There are also two "regular" interviews on that disc. So just checking Interviews means that we don't separate those from tracks that play with the feature.

I submitted an update to Indicator's recent release of The Odessa File. Now afterwards I started to wonder if I did the right thing.

It has three audio tracks, the regular soundtrack and two other tracks. In the menu they are listed as interviews. However, there is no way to list them as anything other than Commentary in the Audio section. So I did that.

But -  in Features only Interviews was checked, so I checked Commentary as well, since it seemed wrong to have Commentary in the Audio without having Commentary in Features. So, in effect the interviews are now listed as both Interviews and Commentary.

Right or wrong?

I'm not familiar with Movie 43 but I feel that Kentucky Fried Movie definitely fits the description "other logical episodic distinction".

Or I can just add a dialogue to XMLSpy, which I will release someday. If you want to design the GUI for it, I promise to use it.

No offense, Jim, but I'm not sure that's a good idea, even if Karsten is right.
- These are such disparate functions. Creating a custom profile should belong to a plugin of its own.
- "Someday" sounds rather vague.

Well nobody has agreed that "_V" means anything.
Yeah. I know. What I meant was "if that was what it had been used for".

Thanks Gunnar. All you need to do is accept a Profile ID that starts with "_".

That works today. I was more thinking of various selection options. One obvious thing is ID Type where Custom should be added.

You could select "ID starts with _V" for VHS (if that's what it is used for), but it would be nice if I could add named selections, like "ID type is VHS". Possibly configurable.

By the way, am I correct in thinking that it is not possible to add custom IDs directly in Profiler, so you would need some plugin just to add things?

Combined with DJ Doena's Enhanced Features and Enhanced Notes plugins, this could really be useful, I think.
I'd be up for updating ProfilerQuery (and possibly other tools) to accomodate custom profiles.
Quote:
_V for videos or VHS maybe. Maybe the UPC would follow, if you can fit into 14 characters
AFAIK all UPCs are 12 digits and EANs 13, so that ought to work.

Alternate UPC: V[Encoded ID].Locality      (used only by plugins and internally within DVDP)
*cough* and by some tools *cough*

I must have missed this when you first posted it. I think it sounds very interesting. I will sleep on it and let it sink in.

If at first you don't succeed:
a) Bang your head against the desk.
b) Shout selected curse words.
c) Try and try again.
d) All of the above.

It's your guess which of the above that applied when I thought that everything was hunky dory, only to realize that I still had not managed to get genre selection right.

Anyway, version 1.5.2 seems to work as intended. Finally

Not sure that there would be enough users that care that deeply about getting cast and crew exactly as credited that there would be sufficient demand for a cast-and-crew profile collection.


Especially since it is unclear on how a database restore actually effects the cast & crew database. It's still unclear to me when a non-birthyear actor gets merged with a birthyear actor.

Even more so that a change of a common name can destroy a precisely audited profile.

You're talking about database restore. I don't think that backup/restore would be a viable way of sharing profiles anyway.
However, with profile files you get the same control as you do when you download an updated profile from Invelos.

That said, I'm still not very optimistic about the idea.

Perhaps instead of profile by profile, what about just sharing manual profiles for movies/tv series seasons.

So, that would be mainly for cast and crew? Sure, that could be done, but ...

If Invelos servers were gone, then Invelos rules would be gone, too. And if the rules were gone, I for one would just copy cast and crew from IMDb. It may not be perfect, but good enough for me. And I'm sure a lot of other users would feel the same.

OK, not a serious problem, but still. CastCrewCheck 2.19.3 should work the way I intended. I hope ...

Backup is one way of sharing profiles. But if you just want to share single profiles, there is another, rather unsung, method.

Use File / Create Profile File to create a profile file from the selected profile. Then the recipient just has to open that file, and Profiler will use it either to add that profile, or - if it is an existing profile - to update the existing profile from it (with the same update page as if you downloaded it from the online).

Aha! That's the one I was trying to remember in a previous post!

Yeah, I guess in theory it could be possible to create an online database of such profile files, if Invelos shuts down it's servers. In practice I think it would be too little to late. There would be too few interested users to build anything like a useful database. And of course it wouldn't provide anything like the features of Invelos' database anyway.

CastCrewCheck 2.19.2

Fixed two minor problems:
- After an entry was edited it would be moved to the first unchecked position. Now entries are only moved when they are just checked or added, not when they are edited.
- Crew entries were not moved to the first unchecked position when added.
