Create A Personal DVD Profiler Page

The free version of DVD Profiler may be the single best value for tracking your collection of DVDs and Blu-ray discs. Its combination of a quality interface and an excellent user-contributed database of releases makes it very popular. It seems fair to ask why anyone would buy DVD Profiler Unlimited when the free alternative does so much.

One answer might be unlimited access to DVD Profiler Online. With the free version, as long as you don't have more than 50 titles in your collection you can use DVD Profiler Online to publish your collection to your own personal area on the developer's website. You can use this feature to get access to your collection when you're away from your computer or to share with friends. You could also use it to keep an updated wish list. With DVD Profiler unlimited you can continue using this service no matter how many movies are in your collection.

Although this doesn't give you the freedom to customize how your collection is displayed or create files to use for another website, it is extremely simple to use and once setup it can be managed entirely from within DVD Profiler.
