Wigram, what you are showing is precisely what I did, and it got rejected.

No, it's not. Look, you tried to update the original profile, not create a new one.

When the main profile info gets updated - does it get propagated to the alternate profiles with cover variations?


AFAIK, after it is entered in the database, there is no remaining link of any kind between an alternate profile and the original used in its creation. In the same fashion, there is no link in the database between profiles of the same movie. This is why no update made to a profile ever applies to another profile.

My edition of Piranha has a different cover layout from the one DVD Profiler has for the same UPC.  I submitted it, but it was rejected.  I'm not sure I've ever seen  the cover DVD Profiler has on any physical copy.


You have to submit a new profile, not try and modify the original one (736991-418943).







Your contribution notes should list all the differences, e.g.:

Update re-release of Pirhana. An alternate version is required because:
- Cover images are different;
- ...

Has anyone verified that the Profiler app works correctly on an iPad with iPadOS 15?

It works fine on my iPad Pro 3rd gen.

I think I can delete them all as none of the titles I actually have in my collection.

in Tools>Options>Utilities, there is "Clean Image Directory" which, I believe, does just that.

My question is how would I find say 883929692606b.jpg to what disc this actually is?

The digits (883929692606 here) is the UPC/EAN; b is the back cover (a is the front). Then, in Profiler, ALT-F10 will lead you to the profile for any UPC in your collection.

So, how come only a couple of users have downloaded HTTPJolie?

I have an immense respect for the efforts of mediaddog, who, along with you and DJDoena, keep improving the program and breathing life in there forums. Many, many thanks to you all!

However, I did not download HTTPJolie. A few years ago, I remove all pluggins to improve the performance of DVD Profiler on my modest 4400 profiles database. With pluggins installed, it took minutes (!) to load, behaved sluggishly, crashed often and demanded a database repair almost every time upon loading. Without pluggins, the program loads in 10 seconds, experiences no unexplained crashes and never requests a database repair (to be fair, I do a full database check before backups, once a week). In contrast, I often use your tools, which run independently from Profiler on an XML database export. Communication between those tools and Profiler with HTTPJolie might be better, but it is already quite fine using double clicking or flags.

My vote is for creating alternate versions, based on the rules:
Quote:
Updated re-releases of a title under the same UPC/EAN/Disc ID:
  ...
  Use for: Two or more releases of the same title with significantly different content. (UPC/EAN only)


Even if everything else is the same, a different DiscID is a significantly different content. The DiscID is critical for linking (even if that functionality is broken at the moment).
