Hello all,

I'm launching the application in public beta. I call it still beta, because there may be problems with the plugin install and incompatibilites on the android devices.

Please note that I'm doing this in my free time, so I'll react as soon as I can.

Also, please don't use cracked version of Invelos' DVD Profiler. Buy it and register it. We all need Invelos to stay alive and running the database.

Screenshots
         

Instructions :
  • For the first use, install android application on your device and run it once. It will create directories that the plugin will try to locate to know where to copy files. It should show you an empty collection.

  • Install the export plugin on the PC, and run it.

  • Some android devices do not allow you to connect it via active sync nor USB storage. In this case, you'll have to manually copy files from PC to device (don't buy devices using poprietary connections )

  • Always use the last plugin with the last android application, and export your collection after having both installed : the application may need the new database structure generated by the last export plugin version


  • Dowload : (sorry, no more version in file names to make update easyer)

    Export Plugin B0.92 : Mega
    Android Application B0.94 : Mega

    * Added a db version to check that the db is the correct version for app
    * Added Export date and db version in the 'System Informations'
    * Bug fix : collection number in main list sometimes splitted on 2 lines

  • Previous Release (March 29th 20123) Android Application :beta 0.92

    I was very excited to try this, but alas, it won't run on my Win7 64-bit as user or admin and the .apk file has a parse error when I try to install on my phone.

    edit: I notice that on your web site the setup is 861.14 KB but all I manage to get is 47 KB after download.

    Marty - I did all the testing on a Win7 64b machine.

    The biggest thing to make sure of is the right click run as admin

    Outside of that you should be ok.

    Tried to install this on a Galaxy Tab. Installation of the apk and the plugin appear to be okay, but the plugin does not find the Android device to start the sync process. Tried through Wifi and USB. Am I missing something?

    Note: there is another app on these forums called My Movies. It has very little functionality, but the export through an xml file works flawless.

    On my Galaxy S2, I never get the message that droid dvdp has never run before.  When I run the plugin, it finds my device, but it does not find the droid dvdp root directory.  for my device the 'droid_dvdp_is_here' file is located at /mnt/sdcard/droid_dvdp

    Inzane, I just saw in another thread that install on an sdcard may be problematic.

    If so that creates a problem for certain tablets, where the internal memory is "logically" connected as an sdcard, even though physically it is not an sdcard at all.

    I too, find the directories and the "droid dvdp is here" stub on the Android device, but the plugin is not so clever to find them.

    I finally figured out the issue with the file size difference. I installed the program on my phone
    and * I Ran It Once *.
    I installed the plugin. Flagged some movies, checked the appropriate options.
    I receive an error message:
    Cannot find program. You must run one time...etc.

    OK. I stopped there, went back, ran the program again. Tried to get it recognized.
    Again no joy.

    My first install was to my SD card. 1) Are SD cards and issue?  2) What folder in the main memory do you need to put the apk in to be able to install it? (if an SD card won't work?)

    Another connecting-problem!

    Install of App and Plugin worked fine as far as I can tell, but when I click on the Refresh-Button to find my Smartphone the eternal hourglass shows up.
    Can be stopped only if I kill the process abd.exe which brings the error-message: "Invalid response from ABD. Please check version." which might have something to say or not ... 

    My Acer Liquid has Android 2.2, is unrooted, is connected per Wifi and has an IP from the same subnet my PC is in.
    Is there something additional to do on the android? I must admit that I'm kind of a noob as far as android is involved, I just use it.

    Guys, here are some explanations about how it works.

    The application on the device create the directory droid_dvdp in the directory it gets from the Environment.getExternalStorageDirectory().getAbsolutePath() function.

    The directory is displayed in the setting & tools. Typically, it should be /mnt/sdcard/droid_dvdp.

    You must enable 'USB debugging' in the 'settings' -> 'applications' -> 'Development' 
    and/or (not sure yet, but I think its OR)
    Have HTC sync installed on the PC
    The device MUST NOT BE CONNECTED AS EXTERNAL STORAGE (in this mode, the device cannot access the sdcard), and not in charge only, but it must be in HTC SYNC.

    Hope this will help.
