It would be nice to be able to add my digital library from UV & iTunes so that I can have a comprehensive database of ALL my movies & TV.

Hello,

i'm agree with you: it would be nice to be able to integrate digital movies library from UV and itunes in DVDProfiler when you have only the digital copy.

for example: a new media type: digital copy (added to DVD and Blu ray) with the possibility to give the format of the copy :HD or SD  and the origin of the digital movie (UV, itunes, ... and perhaps others like google play movies)

i know that i can do that with tags, distributors for UV or itunes, ... in the existing version of DVDprofiler but i would  be better to have  an "official" new media type i think.

But... a new media type means that the integration of digial movies become common to all the dvdprofiler versions (PC, IOS, android).

I hope to be clear in my explanations and thoughts !!!

@pgaudin, I think you are correct in your perspective. I have been working on solutions for including digital media for a long time. Plugin LoadDVD lets you play digital media drirectly from a DVDP icon. After serveral years, Ken add My Links to allow a similar capability without a plugin.

As far as media types, Ken has already indicated that he is working on some updates. As usual, it is just a matter of time before DVDP adds support for new standards. Until then you could play with SideCar - a way to "officially" add custom fields that will be treated properly by Invelos - backup / restore, online storage and database repair. But as you pointed out, we still need support in iOS, Report Generator, etc. to be implemented by Invelos.

Lastly, just FYI, I have been routinely exploring the possibility to add new features to my plugins. Recently I had a discussion with Ultraviolet. They wanted $5,000 for full API access, but when I described our situation (we have our own metadata), they mentioned that they are considering perhaps a lower cost / free API for simple access - for example: "Query what titles in my DVDP database have an Utraviloet available", or "For all Ultarviolet titles that I own, please add them to my DVDP database."  I used to do exactly this for Netflix, but then they shut down the API. Maybe Ken would be willing to pay the $5000???? 

Eventually the world will catch up ... I just hope you are still interested. 
Thanks for your support.

Bumping this up. With the purchase of Amazon movies and iTunes, I would like to be able to keep a list here.

With DVD Profiler for PC you can create as many custom media types as you want.  If you want something bad enough make it happen.  Put the silly mobile phone down, acquire DVD Profiler for PC and get to work.  You can then sync your DVD Profiler for PC database to your mobile device directly or through Invelos instead.

Lowpro, thanks for your response.
I downloaded the PC version, added two different custom media types (Apple, AmazonPrime), added two new "DVDs" to my database, uploaded the database to the server (Invelos).  Then downloaded the database to my silly mobile phone.  The two new titles appear, but the custom media types did not, on my mobile device.
