It would be nice to be able to add my digital library from UV & iTunes so that I can have a comprehensive database of ALL my movies & TV.

i'm agree with you: it would be nice to be able to integrate digital movies library from UV and itunes in DVDProfiler when you have only the digital copy.
for example: a new media type: digital copy (added to DVD and Blu ray) with the possibility to give the format of the copy :HD or SD and the origin of the digital movie (UV, itunes, ... and perhaps others like google play movies)
i know that i can do that with tags, distributors for UV or itunes, ... in the existing version of DVDprofiler but i would be better to have an "official" new media type i think.
But... a new media type means that the integration of digial movies become common to all the dvdprofiler versions (PC, IOS, android).
I hope to be clear in my explanations and thoughts !!!

@pgaudin, I think you are correct in your perspective. I have been working on solutions for including digital media for a long time. Plugin LoadDVD lets you play digital media drirectly from a DVDP icon. After serveral years, Ken add My Links to allow a similar capability without a plugin.
As far as media types, Ken has already indicated that he is working on some updates. As usual, it is just a matter of time before DVDP adds support for new standards. Until then you could play with SideCar - a way to "officially" add custom fields that will be treated properly by Invelos - backup / restore, online storage and database repair. But as you pointed out, we still need support in iOS, Report Generator, etc. to be implemented by Invelos.
Lastly, just FYI, I have been routinely exploring the possibility to add new features to my plugins. Recently I had a discussion with Ultraviolet. They wanted $5,000 for full API access, but when I described our situation (we have our own metadata), they mentioned that they are considering perhaps a lower cost / free API for simple access - for example: "Query what titles in my DVDP database have an Utraviloet available", or "For all Ultarviolet titles that I own, please add them to my DVDP database." I used to do exactly this for Netflix, but then they shut down the API. Maybe Ken would be willing to pay the $5000????
Eventually the world will catch up ... I just hope you are still interested.
