Best DVD cataloging app?

Posted:

I just want an app where I can enter ISBN nos. and the DVD is added to my database.



Is there any app that does this besides the horrendous Java crapware Readerware? I refuse to touch that app. And for $40, I wouldn't even consider using it to lookup, export, then import into my app of choice. That's just way too expensive for a program that bad.



The best non-automated DVD app I can find is [email protected] Great interface, and good database layout. Data entry is tricky, and nothing can be automated, but otherwise it's nice.



Any other suggestions? The new DVD Cache 0.4.2 can look up videos online by title, but it's far too limited and too slow.



I need to catalog about 500 DVDs, so I don't want to enter them by hand. Then there are the thousands of VCDs I have. It would be nice if the app could handle these, too.

    actually i have made up a couple of titles on my own, that weren't listed.

    i just picked an ersatz title then edited it from scratch. worked fine.

    it's rather like iTunes.

    I am using DVDProfiler with Virtual PC. This combo is working well for my extensive collection.

    No barcode ability but it's free and it tracks your CDs, games and DVDs.

    Is there a way in DVD Cache to make separate Libraries, so I can catalog mine, and my brother can catalog his. Also, how do you change the picture for the movie? I can't figure it out. I like this app, but it seems to be lacking? Maybe not, since it is free.

    IMDb is the largest database of movies in the world. It even has pre/post production movies that have yet to come out.



    It maybe that DVD Cache just does not support Unicode but the movies are in the database.
