Not sure why, but I can't get the front covers to stay for iTunes movies so have a lot of profiles with missing covers...

Missing covers locally or in the Invelos onlinelist? The latter does not use your covers but the ones from the contributed profile. So no contributed profile, no cover.

Locally it is a matter of locking. For my 'Streaming' category I use the best fitting BD-profile available and lock down everything. Never lost a cover. (I modify the ratio to a fix 500x600 for aesthetics) [1]

And yeah, Netflix movies that do not have any DVD/BD release are a pain for me, so I just look for a nice cover, get cast&crew from IMDB with CastCrewEdit2 by DJDoena (Thanks!) and be done with it.

It is a list just to see when I did watch certain movies respectively movie I want to see in the future so no need to go overbord.

[1] To watch-list and recently seen done witch XSLtransformation of the XML-export.

If you want to create an individual profile that's not identified by a EAN/UPC or DiscId, you go to "Add by Title" and then uncheck the checkbox at the bottom called "Download profile from Invelos".

This will create a profile that is not connected to the Invelos central database and won't accidentally update/overwrite any data you might have (including your front covers)


Ah, thank you. I never noticed that option in all the time I've used the software!

For physical, I usually scan with my phone then upload the changes.. then download them on desktop.

For iTunes, I've been using the closest blu ray releases, but not all are released on disc either in HD or at all. I like to have the media information of what I have and what format.

When creating a custom profile, that I won't be contributing as DVD Profiler doesn't support online platforms, maybe it's not uploading and then downloading onto my phone. Well the title is, but no artwork. Then when I do it vice versa, it's probably wiping the local image file?

Honestly, I'm not quite sure what I'm doing wrong and where.

Oh my head. It's a nightmare, I just can't seem to figure it out. Even adding my iTunes movies I can't get the covers to stick and upload/download from/to pc/mobile.

I think I'm just going to need to switch for a while until discs are obsolete and use a database software which just scrapes from the likes of tvdb/tmdb.

Thank you for the help anyway guys..

..of course if I find the new software too bad, I'll just go back to basics with an Excel file 

Edit: Just don't like the other software. Just trying to figure out how to add multiple films by title only to DVD Profiler.

Shame I just can't add films all in a .txt doc to the collection as I've already got that copied and pasted from my itunes list.

Well you can, but any software program adheres to some rules. Even those scrapers you talk about, rely on the structure of data within a file.

We have:
- "Add multiple" - DVD Profiler will create profiles corresponding to a list of UPCs (actually profile IDs) in a text file, one per line.
- BulkEdit CSV import: you can create profiles based on a CSV text file. If the text file, does not have a header, you can select "custom" and specify the correspondence between your data columns and DVD Profiler fields. If you don't have UPCs in your file, then BulkEdit will create manual profiles for you.
Thanks for your support.
