I forgot to mention that Wallace Wolodorsky is not the common name. That should be Wally Wolodorsky, who is currently credited with just 16 titles in the CLT. 16 titles: actual common name. 67 titles: not the common name. Do you see where this is going?

If you don't, there's just no arguing with some folks. Hope you have a good 2022, though!

The CLT is very usable.  You simply look at the numbers and use them, just as the rules have asked.  The real problem isn't the way TV series or original titles are handled, it's the amount of bad data (IMDB?) in the database.

May I present to you, Wallace Wolodarsky.



Aaaand the actual credit lookup results (67 titles, 191 profiles), courtesy of my good old CLT plus tool (which apparently DOES still work, yay!).
Titles in parentheses are original titles, btw.



The CLT is a mess, when it comes to TV series. It needed to be fixed 10 years ago.

I agree.  I used to have all sorts of manual profiles for the individual films, so the alt ID profiles have been awesome.

For films, it's a great feature. For TV series... Let's just say I'm not a fan.

That's fair.  I'm a film person, not much of a TV person, so I don't have the perspective on that level.

Admittedly, thinking about it, the only issue I can come up with is the complete sets that have all the discs in them being unable to profile by season.  If that isn't the issue, what differs with TV in the child profiles that makes you not a fan of the alt-IDs for TV? (if you don't mind me asking)

My biggest issue is that the Credit Lookup is unusable because of Invelos' decisions to:
a) Allow disc profiles on TV series, and specifically: allow crew and cast on those disc profiles.
b) Not set up proper rules for processing titles and original titles of TV-series, season numbers, or even disc numbers. 'Disc 1' vs 'Disc One', anyone?

If those rules were set up properly or differently from the get-go, we wouldn't have eleventythousand 'common name' threads on the contribution forum, and it wouldn't be such a steep hurdle for less experienced users to contribute.

The wording of the poll is incomplete. Nobody argues about the original title of movies. It's the TV series that need a fix. Film ≠ TV series.

I'm being prevented from correcting Mary Ann Meets the Gravediggers and Other Short Stories by Regina Spektor.  There are several typos in the original submission, and this release was intended for sale in the UK (I bought it at a thrift shop in New York City and didn't initially realize), but I erroneously submitted it as U.S.  It's telling me that I can't make the change because items with U.S. locality should be NTSC, and it was correctly submitted as PAL.

I've already contributed the UK release, and it's released now. Change the locality to UK, and it'll show up in your updates.

I'm quite curious if my trusty old Credit Lookup Plus program will still work. It specifically requires a login in Internet Explorer... 

Well... looks like it's not working anymore 

I tried a possible workaround in Edge, where you can set websites to operate in IE-mode, but alas.


Have you tried WebView or WebView 2?

I can't make heads nor tails of those two pages.

I've looked a bit more into mediadogg's CLTBoss, and I can work with that.

The Element of Crime (Forbrydelsens element): Ahmed El Shenawi. Please note that this is from the Criterion release, which has English end credits. It's quite possible that there are other prints out there, with Danish credits.

That would be perfectly fine, if only 'Orion: The Man Who Would Be King' was actually present in our database - but as of yet, it isn't. Or have you just submitted it?

I'm looking at four DVDs in my collection (recent purchases from Dollar Tree) with the same UPC: 828706545201

The Griddle House
The Magic Kids
Monkey King: Hero Is Back
Pagan Warrior

The Dollar Tree titles are legit. You can create duplicates, based on UPC 828706545201, but only in the desktop program.

  • First, add 828706545201 to your collection

  • Select the title, and go to menu DVD --> Change UPC/Locality.

  • Click on the blue arrow icon on the right. "Select/Create Alternate Version"

  • Select 'Create New Alternate Version'

  • Click on OK.

  • Edit the profile for 'The Griddle House' and enter as much data as possible. Please add scans of the cover images.

  • Contribute and wait until it's released into the database.

  • For the next title, you can clone it: After "Select 'Create New Alternate Version', check the box 'Retain existing entry and create a clone'. That way you retain your profile of 'The Griddle House', and you can use the 'clone' for 'The Magic Kids'.
    Repeat until you have 4 clones.

    B.J.Britt      5 titles / 26 profiles

    Not to be pedantic, but the common name of this variation is ALWAYS B./J./Britt. It's even automatically submitted like that.

    So the common name is either B./J./Britt or BJ/Britt.

    if I could take anything from My Movies for DVDP, it would be the color bar that indicates how complete a profile is

    That's an interesting idea. But how would one weigh the importance of the different fields? Would every field count the same? And if all fields have some data, would that mean that the profile is "complete"? DVD Profiler's inability to distinguish between no data and missing data is troublesome. A profile for a title that has no subtitles would never be considered complete, for example.

    Last weekend I tried out 2 other database programs: Movie Collector (from Collectorz.com) and My Movies. Only tried the desktop programs, not the mobile apps.

    To my surprise, I got a very nice mail from Brian Binnerup who runs My Movies. Add a "+" for customer support (which I should have added anyway, because theirs lots of interaction and feedback on their forum, along with regular software updates).

    Anyone who has contributed DiscID profiles with AnyDVD running, should flag these DVD profiles for removal, and resubmit.


    Why should these [be] flagged for removal when a certain Windows 10 update is the issue.

    Because the profile ID is generated from the Disc ID. It would be confusing if the two were different.

    My Movies:
    - No local database. Everything's done online, and every change requires a sync.

    So, these are (for me) not viable alternatives to DVD Profiler.

    These were my dealbreakers too.

    I think each field is counted equal. Subtitles are counted as well, because there's an option 'No subtitles'.

    I've already uninstalled, but it looks like these are counted: title, format/media type, region, production year, country (of origin), audio, subtitle, video format, aspect ratio, running time, release date, case type, rating, genres, studio, distributor, disc id, cover images (must be at least 300dpi; my 'old' DVDP images weren't good enough... ouch!).
