What's new in Movie Collector for Windows?
In this update, we are improving the Submit to Core system.
We have created a completely new site for processing your submitted entries, which is now fully responsive to your browser size and therefore now fully mobile-compatible.
At the same time, we created a new auto-login system, making submitting easier and more seamless.
Improved Submit to Core system
Core is our central online movie database, the database that is searched when you add movies by Title or by Barcode in the Add Movies screen. In general, the quality of our Core database is quite high, with the movie information being provided through our official IMDb data license.
But still, with over 700 thousand movies listed, and over 1 million barcodes, some errors may occur, e.g. in the specific DVD or Blu-ray edition details. That is where our Submit to Core comes in, it lets you submit corrections to our Core entries, right from the software, so that you can help improving the Core.
The Submit to Core feature has already been available in our Movie Collector desktop software and our Movie Connect web-based for many years, but the online forms that were used were not compatible with small mobile device screens. So our lead web-developer Sven has been working on a complete mobile-friendly rewrite of the Core submit forms, so that we could finally release the Submit to Core feature in the CLZ Movies mobile app too.
Of course, the new site will also benefit full screen desktop users, so today we updated your Movie Collector software to use the new site, including its new auto-login system.
To Submit your corrected movie entry to Core, right click its entry in the list and choose “Submit Movie to CLZ Core“.
Important: the Submit to Core tool is a perfect way to submit your corrections for existing movie entries. However, it won’t work for reporting problems like:
- Missing movies
- Barcodes being linked to the wrong movie
- Box set barcodes only resulting in one movie
For problems like the above, the best way to report them is still to just contact us.
Looking forward to your error reports!
