Best Movie Manager

30 posts in this topic

What is the best movie manager out there? Free or paid. I just want to add a list of movies I have seen. Don't really need the loan feature because I don't own all the movies.

You can use this:

You can use it on PC or your phone... or both.

I don't like the way it looks.

 

You can change the theme/layout... it is customizable.

I know that but there is a huge thing it doesn't have.

 

Foreign films. I can't find Cl?ment, Vuelve, or any other foreign films. It doesn't take data from IMDB.

 

That is a huge drawback. I don't watch just hollywood films.

Tagged MP4 is your friend. Tag the files with MetaX or MP3 tag and you don't need to use any software to organize the collection.
 
Another advantage with this approach is that you can then effortlessly add the network share to any other device even windows rt and the tags stay intact.

Yes it does take the data from IMDB.. I have used their software.

 

And you can use your webcam so you use it as barcode reader to read the DVD/Blu-Ray barcodes.. so it will insert the data into the entry for you.

 

You seemed that you haven't tried it..   

 

If not, then you might want to write/install the DVD script onto your web host so you can manage your DVD entries.

I have used it. Don't have a webcam and don't own all movies I seen. Some I rented.

 

Bet you can't find Cl?ment or Vuelve on Collectorz

if the film is listed on IMDB then it will catalogue it.  I must point out though that  this is for your existing movie collection save to your hard drive, so for example for Vuelve, you would have a folder called Vuelve (2013) with the movie in it...

Yes but like I said I don't own all my movies then what? Some I just rented. How would I get the movie Vuelve listed then ?

If the data has not been pulled, then you enter that movie data in the entry on the software manually..  

 

You don't have to own the movie.. just list the movies you have seen...    the software has "seen" or "watched" that you can checkmark that you have seen.

 

Edit:  You can add "wishlist" that you can list of the movies you want to see in the near future.

Definitely the best way to go. You can even add tags (keywords) to the mp4 files in File Explorer so that you can search them based upon your own criteria. Of course, if your movies are MKV you'd need to convert the audio to AAC to hold it in an mp4 container. AC3 and DTS won't work.

That won't work for me with XBMC.

 

I just tried adding the movies Cl?ment and Vuelve in Collectorz and they could not be found.

good point, not sure if it can do that, but it does support addons so maybe there's an option.  It's free anyways so no harm and trying it out...

Check out My Movies - great app, you can choose OWN or RENT or even WISHLIST when you add a movie.  Support is great, they've added 2 movies that wasnt listed within 2 days when I submitted it.

I have the ipad version and the barcode feature is great for the movies that you do own.

Why not use IMDB's list feature?

Yeah sounds more like what your after is just imdb lists, Can create your own lists - Call it watched, then in desc when you add titles you could put the date you watched it, etc..

Most software for movie collections for for stuff you OWN, not just keeping track of what you have seen, etc.

I am using "All My Movies". It seems it is not popular, because nobody mentioned it. However, I find this program really good. May be it is just for me...

 

Yeah I found it for $10 on bitsdujour.com but I didn't like it.
