Mirroring the database

Postby makeworld » Tue Nov 12, 2019 12:28 am

Hello KRPorter! I hope you're still kicking around this forum.

This is a great service, and a great way to identify my DVDs, especially through the API, thanks for making and hosting it. Several other services like this one have shutdown, such as the original Windows Media Service, and dvdxml.com. This makes this service very valuable, especially with new movies still being added each day.

Because of other sites that have gone down, and the valuable content on the service, I'm interested in mirroring and saving all the XML files you have. And covers, if they're hosted here. I have several TB of space available, and would be happy to seed a torrent of them, or just have a local copy in case there are ever database issues on your end.

Is this possible, would you be able to provide an open directory or API for me to download/sync from? Please let me know, and thanks again!

Alright, well it's been a while. This post has over 4,000 views now... but no replies from mods :cry:. I'm guessing this site is unmaintained, which makes archiving the XML files all the more necessary.

Here are the links for the archive I made:
Webpage with explanation
ZIP file of all the XMLs - only 44 megabytes!
Torrent, if 44 MB is too big for you :D - seeded forever by the Internet Archive

Voila! I hope this helps people. Download and save this now, or at the very least bookmark the webpage link. Then when this site goes down, you can still identify your DVDs.
