Review: DVDTheque performs as a comprehensive and useful cataloging app

Catalog your DVDs and track their location with DVDTheque for Mac.

DVDTheque for Mac offers a solid choice for collectors looking to keep track of their DVDs, but its promise of dual language support falls far short.

At startup we were given the option of opening an existing database or creating a new one. After choosing to add a new one, there was no feedback as to where the database file would be located or what it would be called, information useful for backing up. We entered several DVDs into our newly-created database, which was rather easy and intuitive. This is important since there is no help available in the app or online. DVDTheque for Mac offers a comprehensive list of fields to populate with data, including aspect ratio, sound format, and languages, all of which are searchable. However, the only online databases available for retrieving this information were for French releases of DVDs. All database information was in French, even when using the program's English version. You can enter all the information in, manually, but if you've got enough DVDs that you need to catalog, this would be time consuming. There are a couple of printing options.

DVDTheque for Mac offers an easy yet powerful solution for serious DVD collectors who happen to speak and buy their movies in French.
