Excuse me for interfering, I'm not using mPVD, but it would seem logical to me that mPVD would have version number that is "lower" than PVD since it is "younger" than PVD. Don't bothers me, just noticed it. In such a way it would be easier to track both products?
Btw, great development and congrats on it

I don't think so. This is a completely independent third party program. It has generously adopted the PVD brand, but could probably be used with any movie database that can export an XML file in the required format. Besides, not even PVD plugin version numbers bear any logical relationship to the program version numbers.

Has removed version 1.2. Has established version 1.2.1. I start. I wish to open base. The conductor does not appear. It is displayed only \\

Code: [Select]
[Global]
DataPath = \\
Skin=Manila WVGA
Language=English

It was rolled away on 1.2 now that history, the conductor simply does not appear :( HTC MAX4G
UPD:
Prompt, how the way to base in options looks? I will try to register simply manually.

It's a typo in the ini file.

[Global]
DataPath=\
Skin=Manila WVGA
Language=English

only use one "\" as path (and no spaces before or after the = )

It not simply typing error. At attempt to open base, there is no conductor! In general. Is not present folders, ANYTHING. On the screen this record from ini a file \\ is displayed only.

If you edit the ini file and change the \\ to \ it will work
I attach the ini file so you can exchange directly.

I have mixed feelings with 1.2.1. I miss the thumbnail view of covers but maybe this speed up things a little. Here are a few suggestions how it may make mPVD a little more user friendly.

1. Add a scroll bar to the list view. That way we can quickly scroll to a letter like "S" without having to flick all the way done the list.

2. Better yet, add Alphabet Index to quickly jump to the letter, like what Resco Explorer does or the build-in Contacts.

3. Do the same for the filtered view of Actors where the list is really long. Better yet, add a search box for Actors.

4. When doing search, do not search immediately but after a short pause. The immediate search starts the filter and it slows things down.

5. There must be a way to load mPVD faster. I have only about 300 movies and it takes a while to load my db on the fast HD2. I can load my collection of 3,500 movies in DVDProfiler almost instantly.

6. Can covers be stretch to full width (for smaller images)? or better yet tap the image and it goes fullscreen.

7. Things I wish added:
- Production Year on list view. Some movies have same name.
- Movie Runtime
- IMDB or Other Ratings

That's it for now. Really nice application that can be really useful. Thanks a lot!

I am working on a "virtual mode" for the SliderList. That makes loading not even faster, but can load many many more movies than in non virtual mode.
I hope to be soon back with a new version. And also AppToDate support for easy updating...

Great, looking forward to it. I guess stability and speed is priority before additional features are considered.

Here we go with version 2.0 of mobilePVD.
It now uses a virtual mode from the SliderList, so I do not have to prepare all the items after loading, but on demand. That enables mobilePVD to read many more movies, but has some restrictions also.

By now it would be great, if the version could be tested. If it is running stable out at your devices as it does on mine, we can add more features...

It also supports now AppToDate, which means if you run AppToDate on your device you will be offered to update the software if updates are available in future.

Has established, has tried, has removed...
1. Well very long loads base... (957 films of 15 minutes)
2. And has not understood as to open a card with a film, how many did not press a film does not open...
3. Not probably to operate by means of handheld computer buttons
4. Also takes off...
IMHO: too crude appendix...
p.s. I apologise for my English
Work of the programmer and the shaman has much in common - both mutter not clear words, make not clear actions and cannot explain, how it works.

To get the movie details you have to select the movie (by clicking the movie) and then slide from right to left to go to details (and slide from left to right to leave the details)

the long time for loading leads from XML. I will make some tests to recode the XML to a flat file. Maybe the loading time is shorter then...

It seems to me it is necessary to do import from xml in any format, for acceleration of work of the appendix. This most once long you import, and then quickly works and you open.

Ok, thanks for the new version. The thumbnails are back so that's great. Load speed is not improved, maybe slightly slower on my HD2. Stability is good so far, no crashes with my 300 movies. However, movie title filter not working. No matter what i entered, the full list is shown after the filter progress.

Anyone else sees this?

Oh, one more thing, now none of the filters work, genre, actors, viewed/not viewed etc. Is it disabled for this version?
