Here's another little tool to play with.
As usual with my tools, you load your exported collection.



Click Check Cast or Check Crew to see if you have names that are parsed in different ways,
for example Kristin/Scott/Thomas versus Kristin//Scott Thomas.

Determine which is the correct parsing. In this case Scott Thomas is her last name.
Make a note of which profiles that have the incorrect parsing. Edit one of them.
Select the incorrectly parsed name on the right, and the correctly parsed name on the left.
Hold down Ctrl and click Global Replace.



Now the incorrectly parsed name has been corrected in all profiles. You can now, if you wish, contribute the corrected profiles. You did make a note of which they were, right?

You can download version 1.0.0 here.

I was just made aware that you can already do this with one of DJ’s programs. His is also more advanced. Oh well, this was an intellectual challenge. I need to keep up my programming skills.

I certainly didn’t set out to steal DJ’s thunder. But I’ll leave it here, so you can have a choice. If nothing else, I have made a plug for Global Replace, which is a bit of a hidden feature in Profiler.

Wow, yet another ... 

I wonder if have you thought about enclosing all your goodies under one roof, so that the collection import process can be shared among all your tools instead of each one doing it? Then all you need is a matching plugin that keeps the XML export up to date (maybe that exists already, but if not ...  ?)
Thanks for your support.

Gunnar uses his ProfilerData.dll for this.

I keep up2date with my DVDProfilerXML.dll, to be found on GitHub: https://github.com/DJDoena/DVDProfilerXML

Thanks DJ. But doesn't that still require the request to come from the calling program, and a wait for the data to load?

What I'm talking about is a push from DVD Profiler. Am I off base here?

Well, no, I haven't. I'm not sure how useful that would really be. If you were often working with several of the tools at the same time, sure, but is that how people use them?

In fact, I often have to remind myself to keep things simple. I have probably already gone a bit too far with the features in ProfilerQuery. So I'm afraid that grouping several programs together might actually make it more confusing to use them.

I have to admit that one of the things I enjoy about your tools is that they seem to pack a lot of punch while appearing to be dead simple and easy to use.

So I respect you point of view on that.
