Found a bug, it says an Ä -letter in the url is an error. But we use them here. e.g.:

Tryed to add:
http://fi.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kun_taivas_repeää

Link doesnt work without the dots:
http://fi.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kun_taivas_repeaa

Special characters (such as high ascii or unicode) need to be escaped.

http://fi.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kun_taivas_repe%C3%A4%C3%A4 would be the link.  Firefox does a good job of URL encoding - just visit the link and it will encode it for you.

Edit: Bah! Beat me to it while I made sure that version would be accepted. :D

^^ Yea that worked. I use Opera and it doesnt encode them, which is good in general use (as it would be a pain to copy/paste links in finnish forums otherwise )

However, the links aren't tied to a specific profile.  They're linked up by Production Year and Title or Original Title if that's set.  So, add one link to "The Matrix" and it will be added to every variation - all 73 of them. O.o


I don't think this is a good idea. Is this feature "english only" or will there be for example over 20 links to wikipedia for each language? We get a complete mess if everybody wants to link sites in there native language. Or will there be a filter in the next profiler?

Well, first of all... fantastic update. The new website looks great! and the links feature is brilliant.

Are we able to add these links to DVD Profiler somehow? I'd love to be able to see these links in my software as I browse my collection and be able to click them from there (to launch in a browser) rather than have to browse them online (Just a personal preference)

And will the links show up in the online database?

FYI, Links currently show on the "Upcoming DVDs" feature in DVD Profiler.  Direct support for online links for DVDs in your collection is coming in version 3.5.  Additionally, links are integrated into the upcoming DVD Profiler Online Plus.

There seems to be a bit of a bug if submitting links for stuff not in Owned.  There's some angry looking (red) text that tells you that locks can't be set on stuff you don't have, but it still allows the link to be submitted.

Should be fixed now.

Selected a random disc from my collection (http://www.invelos.com/Database.aspx?task=links&upc=717951003973&fromletter=_) and when i looked at it's links page several of the links didn't give a choice at selecting the red/green arrow but had the icon (arrows in a triangle) indicating i'd already selected an arrow for some of the sites:

example: www.kids-in-mind.com/o/101_dalmatians_1996__131.htm

I had no intent to select either red or green pill but was curious that some were preselected.

I checked another disc (http://www.invelos.com/Database.aspx?task=links&upc=085391137641&fromletter=_) and found different sites with the same problem.

Bug or feature?

In general i'd say thanks but i'm not sure my obsession needed this kind of prodding. 
Bad movie?  You're soaking in it!

Very nice! Like another metadatabase for info on our DVDs right at our fingertips in the program. 

I was wondering if a new version of DVD Pro was in the works. Here are some palpable results. Good work Ken.

This is very cool, and saves a lot of work.  However, should we add in director, because I know that occasionally there are two movies released in the same year, with the same original title.  I know of one example, but I also know that sometimes direct-to-DVD companies will try to cash in on blockbusters, so they might interfere too.

The example I know of (because I have one of these in my collection) is King of the Ants

Some American football movie which doesn't appear to yet have a release.

I expect that's it, but Ken's the only one who can do much about it I suppose.
