Database for cataloging media

Manage your media collection with this free app.

Want to manage your collection of DVDs, videos, laser disks or CDs but don't have the time or patience to master Access? This preformatted app is ready to use for entering data about your collection--either by entering information manually or importing it from online sources or other files.

Ant Movie Catalog launches a large window with several fields ready to receive info about the DVDs or CDs you want to inventory. The large number of fields may be intimidating at first, but because of the range of info you can enter into each record, both novices and completists will appreciate this app. The type of info you can include are media label, source, original title, translated title (for foreign films), director, producer, actors, country, year, URL, description, video format, languages, audio format, length, rating, date added to collection, and more. We also liked that we could include the names of borrowers to whom we might loan a DVD or CD.

This free app performed very well during our tests. It responded quickly to our clicks and keystrokes, and we liked the ease in importing information and pictures from outside the app into a record. True cinephiles will appreciate being able to sort records according to 27 categories. We were pleased at the completeness of data Ant Movie Catalog supports--all without the user having to learn to build an Access database. We recommend it to everyone who owns so many DVDs he or she can't remember them all.
