Hi,

I'd like to add my DVD Profiler movies to my Letterboxd account.  The standard Collection export doesn't give me the fields I need and throws up lots of errors.  Has anyone developed or know of a report that could be used to do this?  Thanks


I did do it, trying to remember which way exactly. I definitely created the generic letterboxd CSV format. All it needs is a Title and Year column really.

You can certainly use ProfilerQuery, or the CSV Export extension by Mark Harrison, but I think I actually used Enhanced Titles by DJ Doena (http://www.invelos.com/Forums.aspx?task=viewtopic&topicID=784989) as it also has a Export to Excel function which already only includes titles and year. After exporting I opened it in LibreOffice, sorted by Original Title, and copied over the Title to the Original Title for every release which has an empty Original Title. That way you have one column which only Original Titles, which works best with Letterboxd.

I always remove them when downloading such a profile and they highly annoy me. I would advise you not to spend any time of them, it's a waste of your free time. Enjoy life instead of fretting over such things.

The Contribution Rules are very clear on this: "Use the Rating shown on the DVD cover". The only exception being listed are alternate cuts without rating which should be marked "Unrated" instead of "Not Rated" in certain countries. Under no circumstance do they allow the use of external rating information, not even for discs without a rating on the box. Sorry.

Which part of the collection are you adding them to? Is it the main "Owned" tab or some custom one? Go to "Tools" > "Edit Collection Categories". You are likely using a custom category set up there and after the reinstall the checkbox "Collection Numbers" is not set. Set it, that should resolve the issue.

Hi hydr0x,
Yes, I expect a complete export. I didn't realize that there was a good reason not to include everything. I can most certainly fix that. Thanks for pointing that out.


Cast + Crew are the same, they are also optional exports in DVD Profiler. I think disabled by default, just like the overview. However, those don't cause issues in your tool

I get an "endless" amount of exceptions when I try to load my collection XML:

System.NullReferenceException: Object reference not set to an instance of an object.  at ProfilerMissing.clsOverview.IsMissing(clsProfile Profile) in C:\Users\gsyre\OneDrive\Documents\Visual Studio Projects\ProfilerMissing\ProfilerMissing\Checking classes\clsOverview.vb:line 6  at ProfilerMissing.MainWindow.ExamineProfile(clsProfile Profile) in C:\Users\gsyre\OneDrive\Documents\Visual Studio Projects\ProfilerMissing\ProfilerMissing\MainWindow.xaml.vb:line 269

Unfortunately, your "an error seems to have occurred!" dialog does not allow keyboard input to close it. Either Return to trigger OK or Esc to close the dialog would have been fine. But as it is, running into this means I have to shut the app down via Task Manager. So I have no idea if it would have eventually finished loading the file.

The call stack led me to suspect that your tool has a problem with XMLs that do not have the overview exported, so I tried again with Overviews included in the DVDP export. That worked. As the overview is not something needed for most of your analysis and it slows down export and import, this should probably be fixed

I have a question though, is it possible to prevent the parent tag being displayed with every child tag?


Somthing like this should do the trick:

if (tag.match("Contributions/")) document.write(tag.substring(tag.lastIndexOf("/")+1));


Tom, your post is basically the only mention I find of DP_Tags. Is there a complete list of the header vars somewhere, or can it maybe be generated within DVDP?

Edit: AH, found it! It's in the generated HTML.

Ah, I see, thanks for the clarification.

I now found which tool I meant: It was called NameVariants and is indeed by goodguy. The crazy thing about it is that it actually allows you to change the profile credits from within the stand-alone application.

Is this a replacement for http://gsyren.ownit.nu/NameCheck/NameCheck.html ?

FYI, I think there's also an old tool by another plug-in/tool dev that more or less does the same thing. I can't check what it's called right as I'm not at my main pc, but I know it uses HTA html files

Edit: It might be CLT, it's definitely by goodguy
