Good point about Cast vs. Crew. would you prefer an attribute, or grouping?

If it is no effort a flag would be fine...

The two test results I just posted should reveal any glaring errors or omissions. The results were obtained by querying the online directly, using only the profile ID. The data was then collected from the XML. Of course it would be possible to return the entire xml, but that seems wasteful, given that some actors will have thousands of credits across the online. Whoever takes on the task of making a beautiful companion to CLTPlus will have enough work to do without wading through all the unneeded XML entries.

I've taken a brief look on it and here what I found so far...

The glaring error is an omission
- The closing lace brace after the closing tag /Rolename is missing.

Other issues:
- The end group marker seems to be ignored

... there is one exactly above Will Wallace, so he is no Bartologist...

- There is no difference between cast and crew entries in the XML: I can't say if the seond line of the Will Wallace file is a cast entry (for a slimy hollywood producer) or a crew entry for the producer of the movie

... and a question:
Is the Locality string really delivered in lower case?

Testing so far indicates that a plugin is going to be way too slow. But, just to finish my testing, could somebody provide me with a couple of profiles where episode and group information appear in the profile?

Will Wallace would be a better example. Lasts a little bit longer than a minute and has many special case included:
- Episodes
- Groups
- Dual credit cast&crew
- BY

What is "function" in DVD Profiler XML terminology?

I don't know exactly... Are there Roles in the crew section? But baybe the XML example sheds some light on this issue...

It could possibly work if there were a quick way to get a collection of all the movie titles for the prepared name. Is there a database, or a web search that returns a list on one page that could be easily scraped?

Found one: https://film.list.co.uk

Very sracpalitious, but how complete is it?

Don't think, that this would be sufficient. The base for common names - and these are the final goal - is the Invelos CLT. With all its flaws and mistakes:
- malformed and misspelled titles
- collections in title fields
- seasons in title fields
- ...
I can't think of any external database which would supply a base for the CLT search...

Closing in on it.

Is it possible to model the concept by first looking at the local database, and maybe using ProfilerQuery as the UI model? If the concept works on the local, then it will work with the Online. Then we package the query up in XML format based on the Profiler filter format maybe. Once happy with that, we test the idea of blasting that query into a plugin that executes on the Online instead of the local, and returns exactly the same formatted result that the standalone program has already perfected using the local database. Then the standalone program just does its UI thing, not knowing or caring where the result has come from?

Thoughts?
(Meanwhile I think I will mess around and see if I can replicate the Clint Eastwood query and how much time it would take in a plugin)

This is the point, where my technical limits are exceeded...

It seems that goodguy left and withdrew his programs because he got pissed that Invelos did nothing to stop the Forum wars. Now that the main "warlord" has long since retired, maybe someone could entice goodguy to come back and update CLT Plus? Probably wishful thinking.

I tried to contact the e-mail adress he listed with his programs mawobln@freenet.de a while ago. The mail did not bounce, but he did not answer neither.

Anybody around here, who has better information about how to contact goodguy?

It would be fairly simple to create a thin server plugin that would return a data set (say XML) populated with the results of a specific query made on the Online database. Then some other program could handle the UI, query formation, etc. Just give me the query - I return the result - do with it what you will. EZ PZ. (I or somebody else - I don't care if another developer wants to do the thin server.) There would have to be some reasonable limitations. A query that says "return the entire profile XML for all profiles in locality x," would clearly be disallowed.

I can't speak for others around here. But for my purpose a simple XML would be enough; Excel is a usable front end for XML data...

What would I need?
All CREDITASSIGN (?) where "credited as" is equal to the prepared name (or better any one out of a small list of names) with the following information:
- name (first/middle/last)
- BY
- credited as

- profile title
- profile production year
- profile original title
- profile UPC/EAN/Disc ID
- profile locality

- role name
- function (if crew member)
if it is not too expensive (the CLT lists it): group/episode the name is listed in

Yes, the tools walk through the output of a CLT search...
- it needs an Internet Explorer Session logged into the Invelos site
- it counts per pages
- it needs quite an amount of time (depending on Internet speed and the number of sessions used; the mshta host takes about one percent of CPU on my computer (52 CPU-seconds) - so the local machine does not seem to be an issue)
- and to answer the question: nearly 15 minutes:


... that's why

- entering all known name variants at once to get all relevant titles on one screen
lurks on my wish list... But speed is not a show stopper, since this is the only tool to get an overview of the CLT content.

Easter egg and audio track. Yes, but audio tracks are technical information - they should reflect the encoding on the disc and the should be sorted as on disc.

I am currently using this tool for:
- getting an overview
-- sorting and Grouping by original title
-- selecting by cast or crew
-- drilling into collapsed groups to see profiles and localities
- export to XML (real destination is Excel)

What would be nice to have (wish list for christmas):
- editing of the original title on screen (no write back into the data base for sure)
-- this would make the export smoother and ...
-- the manual counting much easier)
-- preferable by drag and drop (dragging one title onto another syncs the origianl titles
- excluding titles from counting
-- ability to mark features which do not belong to the person currently under investigation
- entering all known name variants at once to get all relevant titles on one screen
-- this would allow to show an exact CLT result for the person under investigation,
-- which could be recalulated on the fly when original titles are altered or features are excluded
- formatting the export
-- usually I only need Original title, year of production and credited as for setting up common name threads...
-- I would need only one export line for the above combination (until now Excel does this job...)

Far in the back of my head, I can remember there was some security issue, which forces the file to be locally stored on C: (I extracted it to the desktop).
