    1. Hi I was very ill over the last 18 months. But I am back now and will restrain myself better.
      I just restarted V4. I am starting from scratch. I have the same old common issues. Did setting up Google search change? If so are there simple instructions anywhere? Star scraper did not seem to work. I was able to get the list of all stars in remote DB. But they do not show up in PGv4. again any help would be appreciated.


  1. Saw the v5.0 teaser. Few words of caution:
    I know you mentioned that you were planning on cloud integration, but due to the adult nature of content in the application, I would guess that individuals privacy concerns might trump functional advantages of a cloud integration. Make it an option if you really want it.

    Thoughts for improved functionality in v5:
    1. All thumbnails, whether created from the video file or fetched via a google images integration should be stored locally. Space is not a consideration given that the application is intended to organize large video collections. Fetching and/or creating thumbnails is a significant performance drag.
    2. Search bar should be “search within” by default with other options as backups.
    3. Bookmarks is what really sets your application apart. There should be a separate tab which displays thumbnails of all bookmarks across all categories and all videos. Multiple bookmarks within a video should given different thumbnails
    Great work!


    1. HI, I created powershell script which creates xml files for emby.media.


      You can put all of the Star alias, Star Category, Studio Name, Studio Main Category and Category

      You can run the clip.ps1 which will go through all of the mp4 files (File Format: [StudioName] Move name – Star, star2, star3)

      This will create a xml file with all of the categories and will map all of the stars

      I will write full document to upload the gethub


  2. Hi

    I’m having trouble accessing media on external hard drives. I can’t preview them by hovering over a video or playing them using the embedded player by right clicking and choosing View Details.

    I get the following error: “Error Loading Video: Media File Download Failed”

    Here is the data log error: “Error Previewing [(here is the file directory)]: Media file download failed.”

    Thank you


  3. Latest v4 from Patreon crashes on load complaining about a .dll not being designed for windows. Earlier version V4 works, but to go back to what someone else was having trouble with, I did notice that PG likes lower case file extensions and doesn’t do anything with upper-case ones. For whatever reason, some programs save with a .JPG or .PNG extension,and PG seems to be looking for .jpg and .png.


  4. Patreon donor here. Too lazy to login in to Patreon or use the Github page, so I’ll just put this right here. Regarding the latest PGV4:

    1. The scroll bars aren’t very functional – the grab bar is invisible unless you happen to hover over it.
    2. On the stars section, it would be pretty cool to have the alphabet on the left by the other shortcuts so you could quickly seek to the names of stars starting with the letter the user clicks
    3. While inputting the alias is very useful, it’s currently not possible to search stars’ alias.
    4. Wacky idea but it might be cool to randomly select a stars picture from the saved local/url images each time an instance of PGV4 is loaded.
    5. Right clicking on a star’s thumbnail currently brings up a context menu to edit or delete the star. How about also showing a context entry titled URL that has a submenu of all the populated URLs?

    That’s all for now, and don’t get me wrong – amazing program otherwise I wouldn’t even be using it


  5. Recently all of my thumbnails became not visible. The log seems to say it has errors accessing directories. Is this a known thing? Is there an easy fix for it?


      1. I understand. It is a great application. If you get around to it, a quick fix that would go a long way is the color of the slider bar on the right. When you scroll down through thumbnails, you can’t see where you are unless you are hovering over the scroll bar. Great work to bring it this far!

  7. I know that someone had said that splooges was removed from discord and you told them look under porn-splooges but it is really not there.


      1. Hey big fan of your work! I can’t seem to get V4 to work too so I’m trying to go back to v3 but seems like the link for the nreco.dll file has expired as well.. Would really appreciate it if you could reupload that somehow!


  8. Thank you for the free update, but i’ll stick to the v3, didn’t like some new functions and specially the layout and colors, v3 is much more clean and straight to the point


  9. Hi, PG4 crash all the time if I go over the movies. If I disable the preview it works well. I have update my PC, video codes/update but still fail.

    How do I Just disable this feature as it causing problem for me.


    1. the preview uses WMP under the hood. i’ve had a few reports of people having issues and needing to repair/reinstall stuff. unfortunately without more details i can’t really be of any more help. if you can provide the windows event logs of a crash that may assist in debugging. also it’s actually possible to disable WMP entirely, if you have done this, turn it back on.


      1. It just frozen nothing happens.
        The program PGV4.exe version 4.0.6457.28801 stopped interacting with Windows and was closed. To see if more information about the problem is available, check the problem history in the Security and Maintenance control panel.

  10. Hello there,
    somehow V4 isn’t capable of playing or finding files from my network storage anymore, at the first statup it was though. I did import the old database.
    Meanwhile v3 is, just tested it at the same time, same machine.


  11. Hello! Love the work that you’ve done.

    Can you change the ‘Delete’ option so that it moves files to the Recycle Bin instead of permanently deleting them? Or, at least, a confirmation message – like in PGv3 – that asks if you’re sure you want to delete the files.

    I had multiple files selected and went to hit the Home button. Instead, I fat fingered it and hit Delete instead causing them to be deleted from the hard drive altogether. without any warning Admittedly this was my fault, but it’d be nice if there were a fail-safe, so to speak.

    Also, is it possible to resize the video player in the program? I am still tagging many of my scenes and when I scroll down to the tagging area it cuts off close to half the video so I cannot fully see what is going on to add appropriate tags. I do love that v4 has volume control. 🙂


  12. Hey, mate. Thanks for the new version, but… am I stupid or are features from PGV3 missing? I can’t seem to be able to add my own images to anything (stars, categories, dvds…) anymore, and videos won’t play with MPC like they used to. I’ve put the path to MPC in the settings, but it doesn’t work. Are those bugs, or…? Also, would it be possible to have a “dark mode”, or a darker background color or something? All that white is killing my eyes.


      1. Yo, thanks for the answer.

        I’ve dragged a picture onto the frame, but PG just crashes when I do that.
        Also, I’ve noticed that the scrolling is suuuper slow and that dragging the scrollbar doesn’t display the thumbnails immediately (you have to release it for them to pop up). Is that normal?
        Also also, would it be possible to create our own lists / tabs, instead of using the predefined ones (I’m using PG to sort SFM stuff, so I don’t need the “DVD” tab and would like to make a “Creator” one instead)?
        Also also also, double-clicking or pressing enter on an item doesn’t work anymore. What’s up with that?

        Some suggestions: “Themes” and “Categories” should just really be merged into a “Tags” tab. The Log should be in the Settings, somewhere. Oh, and “View details” shouldn’t launch videos immediately (or it should say “Play” instead). Just my two cents.

        Cheers, mate. I might bitch and complain but I still really appreciate your work, don’t worry.


        1. you will have to more precisely replicate the picture drag crash. i cannot replicate it.

          the best way to scroll is to click the scrollbar, aka page up and down. try not to drag the little scroll-thumb.


          double clicking a scene should play it, middle click opens details

          categories support bookmarks, themes do not. they are different.

          settings has enough stuff already. not sure why log should be in there.

          there is an option in settings to turn off auto-play for scenes

          thanks 😀


          1. Hey, again.

            I’ve tried adding screenshots to “DVDs”, “Stars” and “Categories” in detailed view, by dragging them to the little picture icon in the top left. It crashes every time, for each one of them. Gives me a random Windows error and tells to kill the program. I’m using Windows 10. Here’s the only info it gives me: https://imgur.com/a/p4vey (sorry, it’s in Frogspeak)

            I mentioned the scrollbar, because in PGV3 the scrolling was not that painfully slow. Clicking the scrollbar might be a solution, but it’s really not that convenient. I may sound like an old cunt, but “It was better before”.

            Double-clicking a scene does nothing. Middle-click starts videos and opens detailed view, indeed. Still can’t make MPC work (I’m using MPC-HC). It seems to “forget” the path I typed in every time I launch PG and the default player is always selected when I try to play a video.



            1. where are you dragging the image from? can you try a different image? perhaps from a different source?

              pgv3 had paging. v4 does not. it makes scrolling significantly more challenging

              mpc is bugged, will fix soon


              1. I just tested with .jpg files, and it now works. Tried with .png before that, and that was why it crashed. So, yeah, it was because of the file format. Mystery solved.


  13. Sorry, I’m a tad slow in the head at times. Is there any way to set the DVD cover as the thumbnail or otherwise set the thumbnail from an image instead of a frame from the video? Thank you.
