TurboCLT provides info from Invelos that is more detailed than the ordinary CLT.
Note though, that you must have HTTPJolie version 1.61 (or later).



Detailed info can be useful when there are more than one person with the same name. If, for example, you're looking for a sound guy that goes by either Greg Jacobs or Gregory Jacobs, you can see the various function separated. Gregory may not be as far ahead as the bare CLT figures would indicate. And you can filter on the various crew roles to make it even easier.



The regular CLT does not separate persons by birth year. TurboCLT does.



How many titles are these really?



You might also spot some profiles that would benefit from adding Original Title.

All in all, if you want to improve the Invelos database, there is a lot of information here to point out profiles that might need updating.

Get TurboCLT verson 1.0 here. As always, I recommend that you take a look at the help file.

I need to mention that mediadogg's work has been invaluable. Not only has he made improvements to HTTPJolie in order to make TurboCLT possible. It was actually he who pointed out to me that web scraping the CLT pages was so much faster with WebView2 than with previously available web components. Initially I just wrote a small test, but it was so successful that I continued.

You may notice that the results from TurboCLT looks a lot like what you would get from mediadogg's CLTBoss plugin plus my CLTinfo program. The big difference is that TurboCLT is so much faster (and is a single program). It's possible that mediadogg comes up with an improved CLTBoss, and if so you have two different approaches to chose from. The problem that mediadogg faces is that the plugin environment imposes various restrictions that a freestanding tool doesn't have to deal with.

Anyway, a hugh thank you to mediadogg for his great work! 

PS. The name TurboCLT is a bit tounge-in-cheek. It's certainly not super fast, but it is a lot faster than CLTBoss. For now, at least ...

Thanks for the kudos. Integrating the webView2 technology into  CLTBoss is proving to be so complex, that it warrants a re-write, which will take some time, and I don't really think it is urgent. It would be more for my edification than anything else. I think TurboCLT is what folks need, so long as you can use HTTPJolie.
Thanks for your support.

Oopsie! Something got lost! 

Not sure how it happened, but TurboCLT was supposed to separate titles with different production years. Somehow that got lost. It may not be very often that someone is credited in two different films with the same title, but it happens, especially in remakes. So, this is fixed now. Example:


As a bonus, I have added a new function:

This downloads the selected profile and adds it to your collection. If you want to fix a profile that you don't own, you may want to add it to a collection other than "Owned". You select the desired collection in the Settings:


So, this is TurboCLT 1.1.0

PS: Just in case you don't know how to add Custom Collection in DVD Profiler, look at Tools / Edit Collection Categories.

A tip:

When you download a profile, DVD Profiler does a refresh of your database. If you have a large database, this will take a little bit of time. So if you intend to download a lot of profiles in order to fix them, you might consider creating a new empty database just for this purpose. It will speed things up considerably. And you don't risk mixing them up with your regular database.

TurboCLT 1.2.0

Someone thought that it was actually a good idea to not use production year, instead treating all profiles with the same title as one title. So now you get a choice. See Settings.

At the same time I fixed a couple of more minor bugs, and added some other features.

- You can now search the results for any random string.
- There is also a context menu item for opening the contribution notes.
- And finally, there is a context menu item named Display profile. It opens a window like this:



All is revealed in the updated help file.

Yeah, sorry about that. There is no way for me to access the necessary information without using HTTPJolie. 

Btw, did you try the latest version of HTTPJolie? I know mediadogg made some changes that could perhaps help.

(1) Does HTTPJolie (V1.61) show as installed and enabled in DVD Profiler?
(2) Have you tried running the Client program supplied with HTTPJolie?
(3) Have you ensured that the IP address being used by HTTPJolie is the same as the one being used by TurboCLT?

Would you be willing to supply a video of your actual operations - showing exactly what you are doing and what you are seeing?
Thanks for your support.

Sometimes when a plugin fails to load in prior versions, a newer version, even when the bug is corrected, will show up as disabled. To make sure, View Plugins and click the enable box if necessary. That is also where you can view the plugin options, which includes the IP address and port being used.

Sorry, I guess we should pick this up in the HTTPJolie thread.

Not sure if this is any help, but I have a small utility that just checks if it can connect to TCP.

TcpCheck

It's perhaps a long shot, but if the connection fails, the error message might give a clue.
