DVD profiler v2.0 available for download folks - in case you didn't know.
Downloaded it this morning. Seems faster and now we can specify A4 for our reports!!
Cant remember now but did version 1 have an easter egg tab?
I missed that!! Just had a look now!! Brilliant - I usually print out Easter Egg notes and slip them inside the cases but it's great to be able to store them here too!!
Having had play it may not be all that good - mine are all blank!!
guess we need to contribute the easter eggs
Yes, but give it time and the nerds in the US will add them all for us anyway
I just had a look at the new report features. Sadly, there's still no way to include the Title Description (collector's edition, special edition, etc.). I'm disappointed about that
Also spotted you can now add which currency you bought them in.
Hopefully an "insurance Report" will come along shortly so we can value our collection
Thanks for the pointer.
You can get spending summaries in the Stats section so should be able to design your own insurance report.
Download a report called DVD Discount report - it compares the price you paid to the RRP - and gives you a list of your DVDs and their total cost
Hi there, Can anybody tell me what this DVD Profiler V2.0 is??? thanks in advance.
Click on the links in my signature below and all will be revealed (although the site is having problems at the moment).
Then click on the link in Doc's first post and download. Just enter the barcodes for your DVDs and it does the rest.
OH MY GOD!!
You can actually enter in your favourite website for ordering DVD's (i.e., Play.com), enter you Play account Username & Password and the forthcoming titles you want. Then as soon as they are released at Play, DVDProfiler automatically orders them for you !!!
Only works in DVDProfiler V54.0 - not released until the year 2029.
It's a fantastic program for your DVD's, but I've got Win 95 but in the download it starts from Win98 and up-ward, so no good for me unless I upgrade.
It seems to be only certain dvd suppliers and play isnt one of them unfortunatly
I have noticed that the regions now have localities, but you can't change the locality.
The ratings are also based on locality but the R2 UK and Aussie R4 ones are mostly wrong
Yeah I noticed the ratings were wrong. I amended all mine and then contributed them.
hopefully that'll get filtered "up there" and will update everybodies databases
I updated some and contributed them as well, but the fact that you can't change the locality is annoying. Some dual R2,4 DVDs are coming up with UK ratings systems even though they are Aussie disks.
If it's dual R2,4, it only shows up as R2 as well, e.g. my BTTF trilogy box set
Gonna take a while for all these little probs to be smoothed out me thinks
Yes you can. From the top menu 'DVD / Change Locality...'.
Brilliant! Thanks mate
I didn't think to try the menu options, was just relying on the toolbar and the tabs.
A while back I sent an enhancement request to the authors (Inter wassname), asking for a barcode scanner interface (given their recommended truncation of the EAN / UPC code) ... guess what - V2.0 support scanners!!
It also includes a nice new menu option "Download all images" so I can get back all the images I lost when the DB screwed up in v 1.1!!! yay
Now that is! good news. Used to be reformat hell.
General skanky, i have this profiler program but have not had a lot of time to mess with it. I like the layout of your DVD collection [i viewed your link] and would like to compile my collection the same... Not being that great on PCs how easy is this to do and were do i start? also can you save your profile to disc in case its corrupted on hard drive. Many thanks.
Go to Menu File and select Backup Profile Database to store your database on hard drive and then burn it on a cdr. The file is too big for floppies.
To set up an online view like General Skanky's, you have to go the their site and select My Profiler section, dont bother to download the program and you will face a screen on which you read the 3rd paragraph. After entering your name and a password you will proceed to set up a specific web page solely for your DVD's on their web site. You can then give the web page address to your friends so they can see your collection too.
< My DVDs'.
Didn't even move my lips.
Could not resist answering, I'll put myself in the cooler for that.
Thanks for your help, I have backed it up to hard drive but cannot seem to view it the file is Backup.dpd what application do i need to open file to view. I must add i am assuming its backed up the titles i have added to my profile [put them in with bar codes].
I have not compiled any reports wouldnt have a clue where to start, all i want is a copy of the titles a put in as above ...help
haha..just checked out dvdprofiler for the first time. It's great but there are some bits not llisted so I'll get used to it then contribute where I can.
Gen Skanky help me out mate..I;m a bit oif a virgin, how do I change my sig to something like yours - My DVDs (if you know what I mean)..
