Many of them get cleaned out quickly. I think red flagging them helps whoever is doing it. But strangely, some of them stay around for awhile.

OK, now I'm feeling like a complete idiot, but...how do I install this?  I have the downloaded file, and I've extracted the folder from the ZIP, but I can't figure out how to install it.  And nothing in the DVD Profiler program help or that I can find with Google can explain it to me.

How about running the program you found in the extracted folder?

Here is some info I found. No clue how much of it is true - saying that up front. But if it is, this could be an explanation of DVD Profiler behavior and another indication of the amount of research that Ken does on things.

Are all 4K UHD Blu-ray Players Region-Free?
No, and this is where the misconception and misinformation come into play. For some reason, manufacturers have decided not to code 4K discs by region. In other words, if you have a 4K movie title, it should play in any 4K player, regardless of what country the disc came from. However, this is only true for 4K discs. Any other disc, such as a non-4K Blu-ray or a DVD, will not play in the 4K player.

The rumors that have been circulating claim that all 4K UHD Blu-ray Players are region-free. This has created a lot of debate and confusion, and it also has many consumers deciding that they need to purchase a new 4K UHD Blu-ray Player so they can watch movies from anywhere in the world. Again, this could not be further from the truth.

A real region-free player will play any disc, from anywhere in the world. The ability of 4k Players to play any 4K disc does not make the player region-free. In fact, as 4k becomes more widespread on the global marketplace, the discs may very well be region-coded. For all we know, the only reason these discs aren't being coded as of yet is to help promote growth of 4K technology - nothing more than a marketing tactic. While we cannot verify the reasoning behind 4K being regionless, we can definitely assure you that a 4K Player will not play standard Blu-ray or DVD discs from any region.

Ok, I tried BulkEdit, and here is what it claims is in the database when only 4K is selected:

Dune4KOnly

I tried to use BulkEdit to force a change, but the database always came back with all regions set.

But as soon as I added the Blu-Ray checkbox, I was able to set some regions to false.

So, I guess that confirms what you suspected.

I did misunderstand.

Oh, I see now - you mean if you only select 4K, and not Blu-Ray ... Let's see if I can do it with BulkEdit.

I did some more reading, and then downloaded the PC Health Check, and determined that the PC I am using now has a CPU that will not allow installation of Windows 11. That means a couple of my other computers will not either, but I do have a couple of others (my wife's and an IdeaPad) that probably will.

So, I wondered just how MS was going to get away with that, and was led to a Blog statement by Microsoft that they will be supporting Windows 10 through October 14, 2025.

Just FYI, this particular PC that failed, is 5 years old, Intel® Core™ i7-4600U @ 2.10GHz

Thanks again to Hotm@iler for waking me up to get prepared.

What a helpful post! Thank you.

Much obliged mediadogg.

If I have any news regarding this (or whatever else could be useful) I will sure share it here.

Well now that you mention it, how about HTML Windows and HTML Notes? I think they rely on the old IE based internal web browser that plugins use also. Fingers crossed ...

Hello to the recent user who has "purchased" HTTPJolie. This makes the 4th time, but the actual software has yet to be downloaded.

If it was your intention to download the software, just login once again, click on your user name and select "Digital Downloads'.

Once you download from an active order (there are 4, two expired and two still active), I will delete the other three duplicate orders.

Sounds like a "HiResCovers" plugin waiting to happen.    You can even trick Profiler into backing them up for you. Wish I had the time.    Would be an easy plugin for somebody who wants to take a shot at writing a plugin. You'd get lots of help from the rest of us, I'm sure.

This is not a complaint or an expectation on my part. I am just mentioning the slowdown because it has happened. I also can't get HTTPJolie to be recognized by OverviewCheckPlus so there is no point to my running HTTPJolie.

Again, just mentioning what is going on without expectation. Yes, "rebuilding the database" = database repair. It ran much faster before HTTPJolie. I'm OK with it though because I just fire it up when I am going to be away from the computer for at least 2 hours or more.

So, you are not using HTTPJolie, and somehow you are asserting that it is related to a problem you are having with DVD Profiler database repair. First of all, why are you running DB repair so often? And what else were you doing on your computer before the slowdown? I request that you tell us those things, because they also happened before the slowdown. What is the reason you have decided to only mention HTTPJolie as the possible reason for your problems?

Thanks, I will give this a go the next time I get a chance.

Ok, but can you answer the question about the performance impact that you are attributing to HTTPJolie? You can't make a claim like that and not back it up.

It was only after installing HTTPJolie when things that used to run well slowed down, especially rebuilding the DB. Yesterday I rebuilt it and it took all but 2 hours and that was after the HTTPJolie uninstall and restart.

I'm afraid I still don't fully understand. I assume you mentioned this issue because you think it is a problem, and expect for it to be resolved by the  developer. I am attempting to step up to that, but you have a responsibility to help me understand. What "things"" no longer run well? Please be specific. What possible impact could an uninstalled plugin have on a process that runs while DVD Profiler is not running (I assume "rebuilding the database" = database repair)? I don't understand what you are talking about. What does database repair time have to do with a plugin?

Hey guys I think lightning just struck! Yesterday I had a weird system crash that totally hosed DVD Profiler settings. Took a few of my magic tricks to get back going, but it seems I lost no data - just settings.

Well, wouldn't you know that suddenly, my TCP port for HTTPJolie no longer works, which would lead to exactly the problem mreeder50 is having: everthing but TCP working, leading to Gunnar's tools not being able to connect.

The problem seems to be that in my search for valid IP addresses, as usual, I find both the enabled wired ethernet port and a "HyperV" address. Usually, both HTTP and TCP get setup on the same IP address, but in this case, the TCP port got attached to the HyperV IP address. And it worked!

So, until I figure out how to know which address to pick (maybe it has to be a user setting), check your list of server addresses, and if you have more than one in the list I present, try them all. The TCP port may be attached to a different IP address than the HTTP port.

In my case, the address started with a "172."

Well I tried. In addition to forum instructions, I have tutorial videos and documentation. We developers can never seem to do enough! 

Anyway, the client application is cleverly hidden in the install directory of HTTPJolie. It is called: "HTTPJolieSampleClient.exe".

There are sample commands built in, that automatically use your IP address and port settings.

To use a browser, type the following into the URL field of any browser in your network, even your phone:

http://192.168.1.182:41395/?cmd="ping"

If HTTPJolie is enabled and running, you should get an answer back.

Additional documentation is available on the first page of the HTTPJolie thread in the Plugins forum.

By the way, what is this 2 1/2 to 3 1/2 hour delay you are attributing to HTTPJolie??? I have no idea what could be causing that.

Never could get this running so today I completely uninstalled HTTPJolie. I will continue to use OverviewCheck3 as it's the only option I have.

Sorry to hear that.

- Did you try the free client application that comes with HTTPJolie?

- Did you try a simple command, such as "ping" from a browser? Perhaps there is an error message we could learn from.

hmmmm, wonder how hard it would be to add a scan function?

Would come in handy something like this for my Music plugin that has cover images. Has an HTML window that has a HTML player pointing to a playlist. Been ages since I looked at this, but I remember that I also had a function where you opened a profile and it plays the Theme.
Must dust this off.

Currently all my spare programming time has been developing a set of encoding tools for video.

Nice idea. You can probably find Twain driver packages on NuGet.

It was right for a while.  Now it's showing that I own A.M.I., which I don't.  A lot of the Dollar Tree DVDs have that UPC on a sticker over the original, while others have it printed on.  It should also be noted that many of these are maid by the same company, which might explain why they're in the same store with the same UPC.

And submitting them directly violates Invelos rules, but do whatever you want locally. But I'm sure you know all that!
