Import Movie Collection from Collectorz and DVD Profiler (Updated)

Posted June 5, 2014 04:46 AM by Webmaster

Blu-ray.comYou can now import your movie collection from Collectorz Movie Collector and Invelos DVD Profiler. Go to your collection and click Import from Collectorz or Import from DVD Profiler. Follow the instructions on the page, select the file and click "Upload". If you have mixed Blu-ray and DVD collections you have to import them for Blu-ray and DVD separately (same procedure).

Please let us know if you run into any problems and we'll try to fix them as soon as possible.

Update

We have added additional support for importing, so for those of you who got the "Error Unable to read file?" error message, please try importing again. Thanks a lot to member racerx1965 for helping with this issue.

It does import from DVD Profiler, there's a problem though. It couldn't handle more than 1700 titles at once, so I split them up in groups of 500.
It's also very usefull to mention to import DVD and BD seperately in the instructions page and it looks like you need at least one entrance or it won't import(happened to my DVD import). Maybe it will also be usefull to mention the use of filters in DVD Profiler to export the correct profiles, eg Owned, Ordered, Wishlist.

Wasn't able to import my collection from Collectorz (OS X). Stated there was no barcodes in the file. Opened files and the UPC field is definitely included in the xml file.

I can't get it to work. says "Unable to read file? Make sure you are uploading a xml file." Im using a mac. Not very computer literate, but my file says its .xml. I did not have to extract it a second time like the instructions said. It was already extracted when I did the initial unzip. Any help???? Im using collectorz

I successfully got my DVD Profiler collection imported. There did seem to still be a problem if you tried to import too many titles at once. I broke it down into a few hundred or so each, and it seemed to work okay then.

It also seemed to add a lot of Canadian duplicates (same UPC's I would guess), which I manually had to remove. It might be good if there was a filter here to suppress that...DVD Profiler does have a Locality attached to each Profile/Title.

@Katatonia : canadian editions even if they looks like being duplicates sometimes are and sometimes are not.
came upc editions are duplicates but sometimes the difference between editons is canadian distributor adds French audio tracks to US released editions best example i can give you is alliance doing this with their catalog

@gretzky2010 : I know, but many US and Canadian Blu-ray releases often share the exact same 12-digit UPC, even when the covers differ. Warner does this for instance. That's why it's adding "both" the US & Canadian entries on here when an import is done, even if you only have the US Blu-ray in the collection you're importing. DVD Profiler has a Locality attached to every single profile, no matter what the country. It's just that the import filter used on here isn't reading that locality designation, it's just reading the base numerical UPC and ignoring the locality.

@katatonia : the solution to this UPC problem is like dvdprofiler does is to march the UPC + DISC ID that way even if on edition got 1 upc and multiple disc ids (let'S say by many disc pressing the database still recognise it by edition

Must be doing something wrong. Trying to add all my DVDs from DVD Profiler. I can watch it upload the files but then nothing seems to happen. Any ideas? A little over 400 titles.

Iceman;

First the good
The duplicate issue seems to have been fixed by adding the primary country option. (However, you will get duplicates if there's a Best Buy Exclusive with the same upc and the same country)

Now for the remaining issues;

1.) Importing DVDs do not skip existing titles. i.e if I by mistake import one of my xml-files twice, the DVD titles will be appended and I will have duplicates, two of each title with the same UPC. Importing Blu-Rays however are fine, the program will skip/ignore exisiting titles.

2.) You can't import 8000 titles at once. You have to import a couple of hundred titles at the time. I had to make one xml-file per letter, i.e. collection_A.xml, collection_B.xml and so forth. That's time consuming. And makes it very hard to regularly update/export and import your collection.

3.) There's no easy way to delete your entire collection. Because of duplicates I had to delete my collection and start another import. The only way to delete the titles was to select all titles on one page, delete them, and then go to the next page. etc. When your collection is spread on 75 pages, thats kind of a hassle. There ought to be an option next to "select all", called "select all on all pages" or "select entire collection"

I hope these issues can be straightened out

kishiro: Thanks for the help! 1) should be fixed. 2) you can now upload larger files, but still probably not 8000 titles at once. 3) You can increase the titles to view per page in the settings to 500, then select all and delete, that should be quicker at least

iceman: I exported only ONE movie from my collection to an XML file and I get the same error as when I exported my whole collection.

ASIDE: 1,763 entries in collection which was split across 18 XML files.

Invelos still doesn't offer an iOS version for Mac. So no way to move my collection from there to here using the profiler app that I can see.

I know this is a Blu Ray site and all but hundreds of my DVDs weren't imported because no profiles on Blu-ray.cm. Guess I better start adding..Also I noticed for some odd reason Blu-ray.com flagged 170+ movies as watched when I imported them and I never bother flagging my movies as watched.
