Thanks again!

 

As an aside, was The Walking Dead: The complete first season ever reviewed?  I looked for it but only saw it under the Spotlight section.

 

Again, thanks in advance!

Lee, thank you.

 

Will you be updating the database (at some point) to make it easier to find?  Without the links, where would someone look?

 

Thanks again.

Gentlemen,
Attached is post #1 bbcode for the database, and a 'Table template' A~Z, 0~9, and 3D.

If you ever have some downtime, you could try something new.

This a how the table looks/function without all the reviews.
Thank you for your years of service.

EDIT ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Concerning the AVSForum Blu-Ray Disk Review Database zip.. this file should be considers deprecated. There are many errors as the URL are missing correct syntax. I spent several hours fixing these errors and applying reviews that were missing during my initial capture.

The "Ralph Potts Movie datatbase.zip" in post 134 is best used as template in a text editor like Notepad++.
NOTE: It takes the system a bit of time to chew on all the links before showing up as in the example
Once the editor is satisfied that all updates are completed a complete delete of the existing code is preferred upon pasting the newly edited whole copy.

In other words. I would not go to my test post and add Godzilla 3D and try to update. It would puke.
I would use my local copy (HDD) open Notepad++ and add the necessary URL in the 3D section, then go to my test post>EDIT>Ctrl A (to select all)>hit delete key>Notepad++ Ctrl A (to select all)>back to post Ctrl V (to paste)>Save
Let it churn. Test this method/your work in the Test Post area for reliability.

Post Please note edited entry in post above :)

Work in Progress for a tabled view of the first page. Specifically for Ralph Potts and Lee Weber. This format does not work well with Enhanced Mobile View as the table code is ignored, just as Spoiler code is now ignored.. but it is worth a view.

Attached is a zip of the code which resides in post 34 of my work space for their benefit.

Please note the edit entry in post 133
Attached Files
File Type: zip Ralph Potts Movie datatbase.zip (31.2 KB, 15 views)
File Type: zip Ralph Potts Movie datatbase_9_10_14.zip (31.4 KB, 12 views)

Last edited by Woobieizer; 09-10-2014 at 02:36 AM. Reason: Updated post 34, and thus the zip

Greetings,

Currently there isn't any native 4k content available on Blu-ray. Going forward we will have to see once steady hardware and software support comes online.

I received your PM. Thanks for your interest jphillips63.

Good day, Ralph

Any time I'm considering purchasing a movie on blu-ray, I check this database first to see what you and/or Lee thought of it overall as a film and story, and to see how you scored it relating to audio and video. That said, the movie I'm looking for is sometimes not listed in the review database, although there was a review posted by one of you, which is then found with a bit of manual searching. Are such non-listings intentional, or does the database get updated at regular intervals?

It's not a big deal either way, but I'm only wondering if you or Lee should be alerted when a review has been left off the listing?

Thanks to both of you for all your efforts at keeping the community aware of what's coming out on blu-ray!

Suggestion

I'd really like to see a clickable alphabet (and one-digit numeric) list at the top of the movie database to take you directly to the desired section of the list.

This can be kludged around by using searches, but a search will find words other than the first word of a film's title, and requires knowing how to spell the word, which could be idiosyncratic - Koyaanisqatsi, anyone?

Yeah, that sounds like a great idea if it can be easily implemented and Ralph would be willing to do it.

I'd like to pick your brain on software to catalog movies/blurays, I made a thread but limited response.

What app do you use to track/manage/rate/share/etc your huge inventory?
Thoughts/suggestions appreciated
(FYI the Mod moved it from blu-ray forum to the HDTV Software Media Discussion)

Question:
what software to catalog movies/blurays?
(I exclude Excel/access/etc)

I've got 350+ Blurays and 150 DVD's , not huge but getting more blurays over time.

Ideally it should be:
-Minimum typing, click or scan barcode to add
-sortable
-can view on multiple devices; computer, iPhone
-identifies the audio/video correctly
-app for PS3 would be nice but not a must
-Have ability for user to add custom fields for some unique items; storage location, is movie uploaded to NAS, etc
-if rented or bought
-tracking if loaned disc to friend
-etc

I see this app recommended


Then there is the blu-ray.forum app


and this is one other out there:

Greetings,

I have been using it for over ten years. Initially the only option was PC based but several years back the ability to synch with your tablet/phone became available through use of the app. I haven't seen an update to the app itself. It looks like those complaining are referring to the IOS 8 update. I installed that update on both my iPhone 6 and iPad and DVD Profiler works as well as it always has with no issues. Clicking on the link in my signature takes you to my collection.

Well, I was all set to buy it, and see the desktop version is only WinTel....

Is there a Macintosh version of DVD Profiler available?
You do not have access to a Windows computer to run DVD Profiler.Answer:
With apologies to our Mac fans, at this time there is no Macintosh version, and no firm plans to create a Mac version. Although we cannot provide support for this solution, many users successfully run DVD Profiler under Virtual PC on their Mac.
I've been a Mac guy since Sept-1984 as can be seen here in my Engineering college days..... never owned a WinTel at home ..


So I'm still studying which one, I've not ruled out DVD Profiler.
thx for your time.
btw, nice optical disk collection you have there!
