DVD Profiler Tools
I’ve written some tools for myself that are helping me in the usage of DVD Profiler. These tools are of the “roughly carved” kind and have no fancy user interface and they do exactly that what they were written for (and nothing more). However, maybe there’s someone out there that has also use for them. The source code is included and everyone who is able to write C# is allowed to modify it.
If there are any questions to these tools, then you are welcome to ask them in this forum.

Adding Time is intended to sum up run times of TV show episodes. One enters the time as hours:minutes:seconds or as minutes:seconds. Because it’s simpler to do this via the number pad, the following separators are allowed: “:”, “.” and “,”.
To sum up several discs you move the result of one disc to the right side and in the end you can sum up the entire season.

When you order something with Amazon it’s sometimes hard to find the complete article number so that you can enter the purchase in DVD Profiler. This program converts the ASIN (Amazon Standard Item Number) into the EAN/UPC.
You can find the ASIN of every Amazon article in the product details. Alternatively you can paste the URL from the clipboard directly.
Supported Amazon sites: amazon.com, amazon.ca, amazon.co.uk, amazon.de, amazon.fr, amazon.co.jp, amazon.it, amazon.cn

It checks the cache of “Cast/Crew Edit 2” for potential duplicates which DVD Profiler cannot distinguish due to its data structure. If all for data First Name, Middle Name, Last Name and Birth Year are identical, DVD Profiler considers them the same person even if they are two different on IMDb.

It compares the Cache of “Cast/Crew Edit 2” with what data DVD Profiler actually contains. This way it’s possible to find Birth Years that have been added while downloading profiles but aren’t in the Cache file – which can lead to inconsistencies.

This tool compares two different DVD Profiler databases with each other. It will show all profiles that have the same UPC/EAN and Locality and the difference between them.
You can use it if you want to merge two databases or if you have the same database on multiple computers.
To use the full functionality of this tool, you’ll also need to install WinMerge, another free tool.
