As I go through searching to update missing or poor quality movie trailers I can't help but think that I must have that particular trailer on one of my 1000+ dvd's. But where to search for it on which DVD? My question, is there a reference some where that shows what trailers were put on what dvd. If I had such a thing it would be easy to fine said trailer in my collection or to verify that I do not have it?

People actually watch trailers?? tongue.gif

Anyway, not sure if you're going to find anything like that. DVD's, even the same title, will have different trailers depending on when they are released. Studios may put newer trailers on the same title after it's been out for a few months.

I understand that however I would assume they would be the same with the same barcode so I would think it would be doable but a lot of work?

Umm, yes it would be a LOT of work, and again, not sure why you would want to do it.

Nothing I know of exists

A good bet would be to look for something released earlier in the same year from the same studio

Movie studios don't cross-trailer their DVDs too often

I think you'd still have to pop it in and watch

Even sites like bluray.com, which tell you the audio/video formats of extra features don't list the bundled trailers. If you find a place that has that detailed of review information on DVDs please pass it on

Thanks for your help if I come accross something I will let everyone know. Trailers are handy to have especially if you have a lot of dvd's and forget what the movie was about you can do a quick trailer watch to see if it's something you want to watch at the moment.

So you would rather search through your master list, then try to find the dvd, put it into the dvd player, and skip through to the right trailer? Rather than just youtube the trailer?

IMDB the trailer. They have pretty HQ and if you get a good recorder like Action! you can make pretty good copies of them. Here's some crappified by YouTube HD Action! recording: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=STCKwxzL3VM

much easier way to grab youtube vids, use jdownloader.

copy paste the youtube url and it will grab and let you select which downloads you want, flash, mp4, webm, and each of those in different resolutions.

note: the post above is my opinion. as such, when reading any recommendations from me, please do you research and seek out other recommendations and make up your own mind on your next course of action. i mean, most reasonable adults should know that, but it seems this should be stated anyways.

MCM will fetch trailers from Yahoo, Youtube, IMDB, and Apple

I think the OP (since they stated having over 1000+ DVDs) has run into this problem for a small portion of their collection. Some older movies and foreign films don't have a decent trailer available in youtube or imdb. Sometimes the only youtube hit you can find is pretty grainy

Again, this is pretty uncommon, but it would be rather annoying to know that it sits somewhere on a huge dvd collection

Another good source to download trailers: Dave's Trailer Page

Use Shark007 Codecs and retain your sanity.
