Ok, now it works ;-)


What works?  CSVExport or ProfilerQuery?

I want to know Why Newbies Can't Post In The main Forum?


As I recall, it was a way to contain all the spam to one section of the forum.  That makes this area messy, but keep the rest of the forums nice and clean.

On the very rare cases where people share the same birth date...


I'm totally taking this conversation off track for a moment, just so you know.  That statement just caught my attention.  So here's some fun trivia for your Friday.

You only need to gather 23 people together before the odds of at least two people sharing a birthday are greater than 50%.  In other words, get 23 people together and you're more likely to find two people sharing a birthday than not.  If you can get 70 people together, your odds that two people share the same birthday are 99%.  To hit 100%, you need 367 people (accounting for a leap year).

It's the Birthday problem.

One last important difference.  GSyren seems to do a MUCH!!! better job keeping his code up to date.

Not to come off as being snarky, but I'd think the most plausible scenario is simply to get money out of people who would use the free version given the opportunity.  With the licensing structure for the main program, this doesn't come as a surprise in the slightest.  A one-time fee doesn't seem sustainable over the long-haul to me.  Also, with movies on disc slowly fading away, I'd think additional revenue streams would be high on the list.

I wish I had a better answer, but I'm going to have to go with the obvious and guess "to make more money".

I'll try to take a look at it this weekend.

I don't have a smartphone, tablet only, can't conceive of trying to watch a movie on the tablet (let alone a smartphone) after watching everything on a 53" WS HDTV.


Don't forget that it's not just screen size that is important.  Screen distance is also part of the equation.  Sure, my 10.5" iPad can't compare to the 55" on the main TV.  But when it's 12" from my face compared to about 8'-10', that actually makes a gigantic difference.  I've never felt that I was watching on a "small" screen.  Relatively speaking, I wouldn't be surprised if it was "bigger" actually.  And to be honest, it's just a better screen period (in comparison to MY television).  I get my noise-cancelling blue tooth headphones and for me, it's a far better experience.  It might fall short in a couple technical areas.  But it brings it's own advantages as well.

It's still fun to fire up a movie for the whole family.  We did that just last night and had a great time.  But not everyone is interested in the same shows / movies I am.  That's where my iPad really shines.  I can watch whatever I please.

I recently ran into this issue trying to add a new retailer.  I couldn't save it.  Had to kill the app.

You could also use the Database Query plugin.  I'm fairly certain it will help you track that down.

The Database Query plugin will allow you to sort by Aspect Ratio.  And many other things as well.

I've just uploaded version 3.0.2.  It fixes two serious bugs and one minor bug.

The first serious bug is the plugin will crash if you have empty tags (a tag with no name) assigned to a profile.

The second serious bug is the whole program would hang if you have a profile which is its own parent and hover over the title to display the little popup.  An unlikely scenario to be sure, but nasty if you have to kill profiler.

Finally, I was calculating the height of the popup incorrectly.  In some cases, this would cause parent profile information to display past the bottom of the popup.  Everything ought to fit correctly now.

Thanks to widescreenforever for sending me his collection so I could get all this stuff tracked down.

I "separate" them with tags.

Silly question, but have you double checked the options?  There's an option to treat notes as HTML or not.  Might that option have been turned off?

I've updated my plugin to version 3.0.  It now works fine with version 4.0 of DVD Profiler.

OneDrive?  Are you storing your collection in the cloud?  I wonder if you wouldn't have better luck copying that locally until you get whatever you need accomplished.

I only mention that because I ran into a similar issues this past weekend.  I'm trying to get my plugin updated for 4.0 and it was taking ages to read my collection (like 100x slower than normal).  It was because I was storing it on a cloud drive.  Profiler seems to have no issues with it.  But for whatever reason, my plugin wasn't the least bit happy.  I moved it local and all it well.  When I'm done playing around, I'll switch it back to the cloud.

Just for the record, I recently switched from Parallels to VMWare Fusion.  Profiler still works great.

I switch to VirtualBox quite some time ago and it works just as great. Advantage of VirtualBox: it's free (so you only need to prepare that Windows license).

I have run bth Parallels and VMWare Fusion in the past and was satisfied with both. But seeing that I only need Windows for DVD Profiler and Microsoft Project I ended up switching to the free solution.


I was quite happy with Parallels.  But this year they switched to a subscription model.  Then to make things worse, I recently got a new Mac and found out I needed separate subscriptions for each machine.  VMWare on the other hand lets you install on multiple Macs, so I went that way.  But I think next time around, I might look into VirtualBox.  At this point, I run Profiler on Windows and Visual Studio (development) stuff.  If a Mac version was available, I might skip it altogether.  I really only need Visual Studio when I work on my plug-in stuff.

I'll check into that.  I had other issues I was working out.  Like why my plugin reads data at an insanely slow rate.  I did get to the bottom of that one.  Now I have to get back to this.

I tried it both ways.  I know when I used Parallels, that seemed to do the trick.  I did play with it the other night, but it didn't seem to work.  Of course I was also setting up a new computer and fixing up my laptop.  So it really wasn't at the top of the list to get working.  Now that I've got things mostly running, I'll probably take another stab.

I figured there was probably a multi-page thread with tons of advice from years of experience buried somewhere around here.  There probably is, I just can't find it.  I'll try a few more things.  And maybe poke around the site a little more.

Next time I'll change the networking mode and reboot.  It seems VMWare will do that on the fly, unlike Parallels.  Once it switched I could still connect to Invelos and my browser worked fine.  But maybe a full reboot is still not a bad idea.

I'd also mention to anyone else who comes along.  I did open the ports in the firewall on my Windows machine.  So it shouldn't be that.

I picked up a new desktop computer over the weekend.  Got myself a Mac again and I've switched from Parallels to VMWare Fusion (VMWare allows multiple installs while Parallels requires a license per machine).

The problem I'm having is that I seemed to be unable to sync with my mobile devices.  I had this all worked out in the past, but with the new computer, I seem to be having issues.

Can anyone point me to a thread on this topic?  I'm sure this must have been discussed in years past, I just can't find the threads.

To put it all in perspective, here are those as viewed on the phone.

Ok, if I've done this right, here's what DVD Profiler looks like on the X.  This is the full 5.8".  No notch showing.

And for reference, here's what an app that's been optimized for the X looks like.  This is also the full 5.8", no notch showing.

Finally, here's a picture zoomed in.  Again, full 5.8", no notch.  But when viewed on the phone that way, the top part of it is covered by a notch.

A little underwhelming when view as a rectangle.

So since you own an iPhone X tell me, how accurate is the mock-up I did?  Well, aside from the arrows of course.  Also, when you take a screen capture with the iPhone X what does it look like?  How is the notch dealt with?  Is that area of the screen capture transparent or instead filled with the background of the given page as if the notch wasn't there?  Curious minds want to know!


Actually, you were fairly spot on.  The main thing you got wrong is that the app hasn't been updated for X support yet.  So sadly the screen doesn't extend to the top and bottom like you've shown.

Screenshots work like normal.  It's as if the notch didn't exist.  It's a full screen shot.

I'll see if I can upload a screenshot of the app in action.

DVD Profiler for iOS (Version 4.0.1) on the iPhone X.  Ascending/descending arrows present and accounted for.  Guess it was worth the $1000 I paid for this phone after all!

Okay, you got me.  Just kidding.  My evil Photoshop at it again. 


Not so quick there.  I'm on an iPhone X and I'm NOT seeing the arrows.  I'm not sure what you did to get the arrows to show up, but I'd like to know the secret.
