Re: Almost No support from Digital Volcano for Duplicate Cleaner

Yep - I need to add more videos. There's only one of me so I tend to spend most of the time updating/fixing DC and working on the upcoming TextCrawler 4 and Duplicate Cleaner 6.

Re: find duplicate video lenght

Video Mode
Video match settings->Ignore Content

Re: Why does DV choose a smaler file with a smaller bitrate over bigger file and a higher bitrate?

It's there in the Selection Assistant- You want to checkmark "Smallest file sizes in each group" and "Bit rate" - "Lowest/blank". This will put a cross against the smallest values, marking them for deletion. You can use the arrows to re-order the 'Preferring to mark' li...

Re: Send ALL selected files to external player

I've added this to the development list.

If it helps, you can disable the Internal player in the settings and send files to the media player by double clicking (quicker than the context menu).
