    Hi [​IMG]
    I want to list my DVD collection online, so I tried DVD Profiler. There's so much stuff to download, though, once you've got the client, to fill in the databases or what not. Is there any alternative? Thanks for your help. Have a great day!

    Welcome to the forum! I find that DVD Profiler is by far the best, but another one you might like is DVD Aficionado. I've never used it but I don't think it requires you to download things to your computer.

    There's a new kid on the block, too, DVD Collector, which you can find here:
    Crunchy Media

    Try out DVD Aficionado. Click on the link in my sig that says "DVDs" and you can check out the interface. It is really easy to use and has the added benefit of remote adding of titles [​IMG]

    Yeah, I greatly prefer Aficionado to Profiler. There's absolutely nothing to download and it's way easier to understand and use.

    I still use DVDTracker I don't mind paying the little they ask... only $10.00 per year for something I have used since the start. I have 670 in My Collection now and only had a very few that wasn't already in their database. [​IMG]

    Wow, I find it hard to believe there is any
    program better than DVD Profiler.

    I thought I'd try DVD Collector, and this is the error message I got:
    '1.0' is not a valid floating point value.

    If you don't have '.' as a decimal separator, I wouldn't touch this with a stick.

    I'm sorry, but software developed anywhere without the knowledge of regional differences makes me very irritated.
    [/rant]

    Edit: It is a known problem on their support-site, but it still makes me irritated.

    So that's what that error was! I removed the program after getting this.

    Think I'll sit this one out for at least at year, and stick with DVDProfiler. Maybe then, they've gotten some of the bugs out.

    Put me down as another who prefers www.dvdaficionado.com for both ease and aesthetics.
    (Oh....but you can't click on my link right now because it's offline due to our Name that Movie game in the Polls Area.)

    I maintain my DB in Excel.

    And if you have the newer versions of Excel it'll auto-generate an HTML page from a worksheet, so you could post your collection online in that manner.
