Hi everyone,
I am new to iOS, I used to be a Windows-User but I switched to Mac so now I am left with the DVD-Profiler Version on iPad.  That is no problem, actually.  But: I do not seem to find any option to "contribute" a new DVD to the official DVD-Profiler database.  How do I do that? I have of course the custom entry, but I cannot add the minimal features required (on Windows) to contribute a DVD. So, if this is not available, I would appreciate this feature in the next release.  I did contribute a lot of DVDs in the past, and I would like to go on doing so.
Best regards & thanks
Claudio

Unfortunately there's no option to contribute a profile from iOS. You'll need the desktop version of DVDP.

There are several ways to run DVDP on a Mac.
1)  Crossover is a program that lets you run Windows programs on a Mac without using Windows. There's a free trial available. I never got it to run well, but it might work for you.

2) Run Windows in a virtual machine Like Parallels Desktop and VM Ware Fusion on your Mac.

3) Use the built-in Boot Camp assistant to make a Windows partition on your Mac. This only works with Windows 7 and 8. You will need to reboot your Mac to the Windows partition to use DVDP.

4) Join the club and ask Ken for a Mac version of DVDP. Then wait forever.

For the record, I run Profiler just fine on Windows 8.1 running under Parallels on my Mac.  It works just great.
Get the CSVExport and Database Query plug-ins here.

For Mac, there is also VirtualBox, which is free. Of course, a proper Windows license is still required. I use this and it runs well enough with Windows 8.1.
