Sorry, I must have missed your database entry. I will reset right away. I've been trying to get the company that makes my store software give me an easy way to reset in bulk.

Edit: Should be fixed now. If not, PM me and I will give you a direct link.

New Release V1.27 Available

This is a utility release that fixes bugs and adds functions to maintain compatibility with GSyren Tools.

Please note: End User Documentation has NOT yet been updated for this release, due to personal constraints.

If you have downloaded this plugin previously, you do not need to order a new copy. Just use your existing login, use the Digital Downloads tab and re-download to get the update.

Any download issues, please let me know and I will get it resolved.

If you have truly refreshed the collection, you would have effectively done what you did for a single DVD, for each DVD in the collection. So, my guess is that you are not following the correct procedure, which is:

- Online > Refresh Online Profile List
- Online > Refresh Updated Profiles from Invelos

That should do it. Yes, it will take a long time.

This is why Invelos made a Backup / Restore option. You can restore from a backup, or from the online.

It appears you might have wiped out your online backup if you uploaded from an empty database?

Sorry if you see my response as kind of an attack and I don't know what made you thinking this way.

But what in your opinion could I have done alternatively? No matter if T!Ms response includes facts or just an opinion, my answer was nothing else than an evidence that he can't be right.

Well of course he could be right. That means that you could be wrong. Be open minded and explore what could cause two people looking at the same facts to get two different answers? It usually means that one or both parties are missing something.

- An Invelos bug (yes, it happens)
- The website / backend doesn't work the way you think it does
- A glitch in the normal flow of contributions approvals - they are just people
- etc.

@Magmadrag

Sorry to intrude, but it seemed to me as though @T!M was trying to help with some detailed info that sounded reasonable to me. Why attack?

Another experienced user with a massive reputation score cannot be all wrong. Maybe a matter of interpretation?

I believe that just about anything you put into certain folders is backed up automatically along with the database:

- ScenePhotos
- CreditPhotos
- Filters
- Labels
- Flags

I am not sure what if any restrictions exist for filetypes and size. If anyone knows, please share info. But I think you could just add a folder(s) for your HTML and pics.

There is no folder setting for the plugins folder.

So if the plugins are not working, there is a registry issue.

To resolve:

- for Invelos Plugins, re-install DVD Profiler (that might fix everything)
- for non-Invelos Plugins, if not fixed by the prior step, re-install those plugins

And of course since you have chosen a non-default install directory, make sure that the plugin DLLs are in the \Plugins folder or sub-folder, where Profiler can find them. 

You should be good to go.

It appears as though you have installed DVD Profiler in a different folder from before. Maybe you went from 32 bit to 64 bit?

Anyway, plugins should be saved in a folder path relative to the dvdpro.exe:

{location of dvdpro.exe}\Plugins\(name of plugin)\.... plugin files are usually here

Also:

{location of dvdpro.exe}\Plugins\CollectionGallery.dll
{location of dvdpro.exe}\Plugins\ViewFlagged.dll

Filters might also be an option for switching among groups of profiles with selected attrubutes.

It's tested against the latest released version, 1.21.

Ok, I sent him a link to V1.26. Not sure that will change anything, given the functions you are using.

Great, now what I need to do is figure out why elevation is required on some systems, and not others. By the way, I wonder which version you have. I have authorized Gunnar to distribute whatever version he is testing with, to his users. But I will send you a link to the latest (unreleased) via PM. There might be features I have recently added or fixed at Gunnar's request.

Hi Gunar,

I have already spent way too much time trying to get HTTPJolie to run correctly, and don't want to invest more time in getting HTTPJolie to run.

Understandable. Sorry for your troubles. I get nothing out of people using it except the satisfaction of helping others, so I'm sorry that it doesn't help you. But if it is at all possible, the only way I know I am making progress, is from users. So, sometime in the future, and you are so inclined. grab an updated release and just see if it works. No extensive testing. Just type the "ping" command into a browser. 1 minute test.

Thanks in advance.

Would love to try it, but HTTPJolie will not work on my computer.

I appreciate your patience. Would you like to try the latest version? There is still a bug where on some systems, DVD Profiler needs to be running elevated both for TCP and HTTP requests. This happens even on my own network, and I don't know why this happens on one computer and not the other. But if you have the patience to try again, let me know.

And just in case you forgot, HTTPJolie / Profiler do not need to be running on the same computer as the tool. Maybe that will allow you enough flexibility to get things going.

Wow, seems cool. Would it be legal for me to use that API inside DVDPca to auto generate a profile (its original purpose)?

sorry for typing in German. English is not a problem at all
I noticed that Chrome shows me all the posts in my language, even the ones I previously wrote in English, so I thought it was a general option on this website.

I have 2 Synology Diskstations with a total of 30TB of storage, so no Windows PC has to be running 7/24.

Where can I find your plugin "LoadDVD" and what to say about "makemkv" see below?

LoadDVD and most other plugins are discussed in the plugins forum. Details on how to get them, how to use them, bug and fixes, etc are all topics. I will leave to someone else to discuss makemkv.

It's a global forum. Love it!!!

@mediadogg, what servers are you using, are you bringing over the entire disc (ISOs?), and what are you using to stream your the content?

I have only a small fraction of my collection on hard drive. I gave up when Blu-Ray came along. It just took too much time to rip. And in the early days, hard drives were far more expensive, and to compensate I tried to use RAID arrays, which was an absolute nightmare. I could not afford the expensive enterprise drives and quality controllers. I spent most of my life rebuilding corrupt arrays after a thunderstorm.

So my strategy now is to use 1 main server, Windows 2012 Essentials where I have about 60TB spinning. Most of my media consists of TV programs and torrent downloaded international pop music videos and TV programs (JPop, Kpop, CPop, etc.). I organize by year, and make backups onto cheap USB drives as the main server drives get low.

I also have a backup server, Windows 2011 Essentials, that has more drive space, but I don't keep them spinning. Power it on every now and then.

Both servers have the ability to automatically make incremental backups of Windows machines. So all my laptops and desktops are backed up nightly. They also keep massively large Windows File History folders that contain shadow copies of files (prior versions).

Current year media downloads onto my torrent machine, which syncs daily with the main server, which has all prior years and family photos, PC backups, etc.

So, I usually have at least two copies of everything I care about, and up to three or more copies, some of which have been moved offline to sit in a cabinet.

Most of my physical discs are in 4 400 disc Sony changers, 2 DVD (CX995V) and 2 BD (CX7000ES). So I play media from them, and also use VLC Player and Cyberlink PowerDVD for hard drive media.

My Plugin LoadDVD allows me to launch media from any of those sources directly from DVD Profiler, and it includes support for all Sony multi-disc changers using infrared and TCP/IP commands.

Finally, my goto 4K player is the mighty Xbox 1. When I want to blow the roof off visually and audibly. Atmos, 4K, UHD, the whole ball of wax. 13 speakers including 4 subwoofers and 4 Atmos bouncers.

So, there you go! That's me!

Captain, I don't mean to be rude, but this is an English language Forum, and you speak it perfectly well. I'm not sure what point you are trying to make, by making some of us work harder to understand what you are saying. I do care, and I do want to read it. I speak and understand some German language, especially when I'm drinking, my friends always pointed out, but not enough to understand your posts.

Edit: Oh, OK I see when I am in Chrome, I can right-click to see English. Well that is easy enough!

Also, es macht nichts!

Is this better?

Well, I can tell you that I have 990 dvds and 113 blurays. They are all ripped to .mkv - only the main features, not all the extras (occasionaly I have included the blooper-reel from thing like The Big Bang Theory.)

Together with the scanned covers (around 10-15 MB each), it totals 9.7 TB.

Where do you get the time to do that??? I guess little by little as you acquire the discs. How long does each rip tale?

Thanks, you know I won't burden you with messing with all those plugins. Consider it an FYI. You have shared enough info about how to use a VM, which I should get up off my butt and do  , and then test the plugins. Thanks for all the great info.

Plugin CLTBoss uses internal browser, timers and Autox.

Bulkedit uses internal browser and xml libraries.

HttpJolie uses UDP, HTTP and TCP listeners and a large number if the internal Plugin API calls.

There probably isn't much hope for LoadDVD, My Tools and Sidecar. DVDPca is already broken. Hopefully someday I get to update them, but maybe by then ....

@rdodolak

I have no doubt that I could have made mistakes. After downloading the profiles, I just set filters for DVD Only, etc. and then copied down the number of profiles in the filtered collection.

I had considered asking you for the totals, but I didn't think it was fair for me to burden you.

The BD and UHD items by far cost the most storage, so if I use your numbers (and incorrectly count 1 disc per release), I get:

3000 x 50 GB = 150TB
300 x 100GB  =  30TB
1200 x 8 = 10TB

Whole bunch of TB!!!! 

I have to say though, I am still amazed at how much people spend on physical storage and fancy display cabinets.

My 4 Sony changers cost almost $3000 to store 1600 discs. They produce stunning images, but big and obsolete and now can't give them away.
