A server that returns an XML file with the same format as the regular export XML would certainly open up a host of possibilities. A query in the same form as Profiler filter sounds good to me.

A bit of interesting trivia that occured to me when I looked at the filters. You can select AND/OR in all filters except Crew and Studios. Those two are always OR. Probably a remnant from way back when there was only one crew (Director) and one studio.

So, if it still works, and still has value, the only issue is that the author does not want it to be used or distributed.
Well, if I understand correctly it only works under Win 7 and in Internet Explorer.

It seems that goodguy left and withdrew his programs because he got pissed that Invelos did nothing to stop the Forum wars. Now that the main "warlord" has long since retired, maybe someone could entice goodguy to come back and update CLT Plus? Probably wishful thinking.

Now THAT would be a plan!!!!

I tried to contact the e-mail adress he listed with his programs mawobln@freenet.de a while ago. The mail did not bounce, but he did not answer neither.

Anybody around here, who has better information about how to contact goodguy?

Closing in on it.

Is it possible to model the concept by first looking at the local database, and maybe using ProfilerQuery as the UI model? If the concept works on the local, then it will work with the Online. Then we package the query up in XML format based on the Profiler filter format maybe. Once happy with that, we test the idea of blasting that query into a plugin that executes on the Online instead of the local, and returns exactly the same formatted result that the standalone program has already perfected using the local database. Then the standalone program just does its UI thing, not knowing or caring where the result has come from?

Thoughts?
(Meanwhile I think I will mess around and see if I can replicate the Clint Eastwood query and how much time it would take in a plugin)

This is the point, where my technical limits are exceeded...

Testing so far indicates that a plugin is going to be way too slow. But, just to finish my testing, could somebody provide me with a couple of profiles where episode and group information appear in the profile?

What is "function" in DVD Profiler XML terminology?

It could possibly work if there were a quick way to get a collection of all the movie titles for the prepared name. Is there a database, or a web search that returns a list on one page that could be easily scraped?

Found one: https://film.list.co.uk

Very sracpalitious, but how complete is it?

Not very. I counted 59 titles for Clint Eastwood in my collection (excluding documentaries and double dips, but including Tarantula and Revenge of the Creature), and the same search at that site listed 29 titles.

To continue the Clint Eastwood theme:
J. Edgar 5-051895-164136 has group dividers in both cast and crew.
Rawhide 097368-878020 has episode dividers

Will Wallace would be a better example. Lasts a little bit longer than a minute and has many special case included:
- Episodes
- Groups
- Dual credit cast&crew
- BY

Here a small 7Z File including the exported XML file and some small screenshots to identify examples...

I don't know exactly... Are there Roles in the crew section? But baybe the XML example sheds some light on this issue...

Don't think, that this would be sufficient. The base for common names - and these are the final goal - is the Invelos CLT. With all its flaws and mistakes:
- malformed and misspelled titles
- collections in title fields
- seasons in title fields
- ...
I can't think of any external database which would supply a base for the CLT search...

Testing got hung up last night, waiting for Invelos website response. Maybe there is throttling going on. I will to test again today.

I only used the word "function" because I saw it in the "what I need" post. So, if you don't know what it means, then I will go ahead and stick with what comes out of the database as the equivalent for "role" as a crew member. It is CreditSubType, such as "Sound Editor".

Also, I connected to a wired port, and it is obviously running much faster than my wi-fi was last night.

The biggest downside to my approach is that it requires so many hits to the Invelos site, probably more than was intended. But I am using legit API functions, so they must have anticipated some level of usage - just not sure how much. I'm sure the built-in CLT function has a back-end server process that is far more efficient at collecting data from the online database. So, even screen scraping its results are going to be faster than crawling through thousands of hits to the Invelos site on a profile by profile basis. If only the API had a cast / crew search, it would be easy. But alas, you can only query on UPC, profile ID or title.

I sure hope somebody is successful in contacting Goodguy. I would much rather contribute to an effort to update his code, than spending time watching a progress bar track thousands of database calls. I doubt seriously if my testing will bear much fruit unless I figure out a way to more quickly get hold of the relevant profiles to pull the credit info from.

OK, I stopped the test. Over 2 hours, and I was only half-way through titles starting with "a", while looping letter by letter on this:  "\"_ ()[]{}.*&$@!0123456789abcdefghijklmnopqrstuvwxyz".

Tme to start thinking outside the box and it occurred to me that I had not looked at the CLT itself, and examine the page source.

Well friends, the native CLT output is dead simple for scraping at the cursory level - just gathering the profile IDs would be a snap. I have code inside both LoadDVD and BulkEdit  (ScrapeGoat) that almost does this already. Once I have the list of profile IDs, then I could efficiently blast over the API to grab the profile data, and return anything you want - up to and including the entire XML.

Party time! 

By the way, my first task is to make a small modification to my test code, so that rather than discovering the profiles to use, it accepts a list. Once that works, I will move on to adapting my existing scraping code. This will give a few hours in case Gunnar or anybody else who wants to have some fun with the scraping part in a standalone program. Then I will cobble up a way to act as a server for a request that sends me a list of profile IDs, and you get back some XML. If no takers within a few hours, I will attempt to put it all inside BulkEdit. ("All" meaning collecting the raw data. There is still the minor detail of extensively reformatting it to provide the value of Goodguy's CLT PLus)

Another BTW: If you haven't seen Scrapegoat, it is put on the Tools menu by BulkEdit. You get a panel that allows you enter the Invelos user handle, and it instantly scrapes that user's online collection into a list for you to view and / or add to your own collection.

Can you give me a couple of profiles. Will Wallace has lots of movies. So if you know of at least one profile that has all that, I can do some testing.

The two test results I just posted should reveal any glaring errors or omissions. The results were obtained by querying the online directly, using only the profile ID. The data was then collected from the XML. Of course it would be possible to return the entire xml, but that seems wasteful, given that some actors will have thousands of credits across the online. Whoever takes on the task of making a beautiful companion to CLTPlus will have enough work to do without wading through all the unneeded XML entries.

Now I will see if my assertion that scraping the list of profile IDs from the CLT search is a easy as I thought it would be.

I've taken a brief look on it and here what I found so far...

The glaring error is an omission
- The closing lace brace after the closing tag /Rolename is missing.

Other issues:
- The end group marker seems to be ignored

... there is one exactly above Will Wallace, so he is no Bartologist...

- There is no difference between cast and crew entries in the XML: I can't say if the seond line of the Will Wallace file is a cast entry (for a slimy hollywood producer) or a crew entry for the producer of the movie

... and a question:
Is the Locality string really delivered in lower case?

Ah, thanks. I didn't understand how to use the END divider.

I will check about the case of locality. I believe I'm grabbing it as supplied, but I will double check. This info is coming down directly from the Online, so it might well be formatted differently from the PC program. When I get time, I might do a comparison.

Good point about Cast vs. Crew. would you prefer an attribute, or grouping?
