Physical based media is better in every way. You get better bitrate and no down time.

God forbid if internet went down and the end of the world come about :O atleast i would have my blu-ray and dvd collection in my doomsday bunker to keep me going

To me physical media is always better than digital streaming.

I love dvdprofiler excellent place to archive my collection. its simple and the user interface is second to none

^ Agreed. But most young'ens seem to prefer digital. I don't, not only if the Internet goes down (which doesn't happen often with me around here), but if a digital company goes away or is sold off to another company. It's certainly possible that any digital copies you "own" don't transfer.

I won't ever go digital. Call me an old fogie.

You made me realized I use DVDP for more than 10 years... in fact I jumped the gun three days after the version 3.0, the first one from Invelos, was released

I'm a mix.  I believe to date I've purchased one item digitally.  But I always redeem my digital codes.

When it comes to watching, while I still prefer to watch the disc, I must admit that I've been doing a lot more streaming.

I get that my iPad isn't nearly as big as my TV, but that's all relative.  The TV is on the other side of the room.  The iPad is in my lap.  I'm quite pleased with the screen size at that distance.

I don't get the awesome surround sound, but I do have nice noise-canceling headphones that I'm rather fond of.

I don't get the bonus features when I watch digitally.  But honestly, I got tired of bonus features a couple thousand discs back.  I rarely watch them even on the disc.

On the plus side, I can take my iPad anywhere in the house to watch.  That's a nice feature.  I tend to spend most of that time outside.

I don't see myself going digital only, but I do love having the digital download with my movie.  The quality isn't the same.  But once I get into the story, I tend to forget that it's HD or has an awesome sound track.  I watch for the stories, not the technical specs.

Thing is, and back to being an old fogie, I don't have an iPad, closest thing I have is an old Amazon Fire device which I rarely use.

Don't get me wrong I watch digital and redeem my digital codes so I can watch while I'm away from home but physical media for me is superior and you know you own it and it won't go any place .

I absolutely love my physical media.  It's the best way to watch.  Especially when you find that Netflix no longer has that show or you find out the streaming app you use lost access to a particular movie.  I noticed yesterday that The Arrival plus about 10 others I own are no longer able to stream from Flixster Video.  I just watched that a couple weeks back with that app.  Now I can't unless I switch apps.  I think I might still be able to watch them on the Vudu app, but that's not my provider of choice.  That's why physical media will always win in my eyes.  Still, I'm thrilled when there's a digital code and I always enter them.  I was redeeming my codes long before I had a use for them.  Now I'm glad I did.  It's nice having another option in addition to the actual disc.

My other trick is that I rarely stream.  I'll download it first so I don't have network issues to worry about.  I only stream if there's no option to download.  And if I'm thinking ahead, I'll do my download at work.  Faster internet that doesn't eat into my quota at home.

The application has not been updated since 2015. It lack support for UHD (though I see there is a beta with that feature). I was thinking going over to MyMovies because they have an updated desktop application (though not as nice like DVDProfiler).

Also Invelos should think of rebranding the application name. DVD is so in the past. Movie Profiler (or Media Profiler) would suit it much better.


I agree, some betas for nothing and finished ...

About two months ago, my computer's hard drive died a slow, miserable death. Without my physical media, I would have been without anything to watch for some time because I had issues with ordering, sending back, and reordering a new drive.

I do not collect DVDs nearly like I used to, but that is OK since I have enough currently that I could watch 24/7 for months before seeing them all again. Even so, Profiler still serves a purpose for me.
If at first you don't succeed, skydiving isn't for you.

He who MUST get the last word in on a pointless, endless argument doesn't win. It makes him the bigger jerk.
