Add from URL and accomodate for digital content

Postby bgw4222 » Sat Jun 10, 2017 4:04 pm

Potentially this feature is buried in here somewhere (all pedias). It would be nice to be able to add from a URL (e.g., Vudu, Amazon, Apple Store, etc.). It would also be nice if in this day and age of all digital that things like SD, HD, HDX, etc. be options. Everything auto populates with physical media. It gets old having to either always manually enter or find the closest match then remove the physical media details and then enter digital/streaming details.

Drag the URL over DVDpedia dock icon or the list view. It will then initiate a search if it recognizes the URL and target the appropriate site, if it's one of the search sites. Will also pull out UPC/ISBNs from any URL if not recognized for searching.

It would be nice to get more digital content, but all the databases are still mainly geared towards the physical media. Would be great if more digital databases open up their data like iTunes and Netflix.
