DVD Hunter for Mac offers basic functionality for creating a database of your DVD collection. Even though this application mostly works, adding titles can be a bear and some features are implemented rather poorly.

On first launch, DVD Hunter for Mac asks the user to import their Contacts, which may seem a bit odd at first since this is a DVD cataloging app, but after getting to know all the options offered later on, this made sense. After the application completes importing contacts, the user is given the option of reading a Getting Started guide. The app's interface seems basic but also very intuitive. For all but the most novice of Mac users it will be easy enough to get started without reading the guide. During testing, we added a few movies from our collection, typing in the first couple of words of a title and pressing the "Auto complete" button. DVD Hunter quickly returned with over a dozen results, accounting for various editions of DVD releases of the same movie. It wasn't always easy to discern which edition was ours, and some of the information returned was incorrect. When we saved the title to our catalog, we noticed the title was listed as our partial search term, not the full title. The application also includes a mechanism for tracking who you've lent your DVDs to, which is the reason behind the Contacts import. If the user imported their contacts, they can only select them from a drop-down menu, though. There's no way to just type a person's name in.

DVD Hunter for Mac seems to be designed with the serious collector in mind, though collectors may find this software limited in some options.

"I love this program's previous versions for my MAC."

December 25, 2011  |  By Tiger_Steve

 |  Version: DVD Hunter 1.1.24

Pros

I think the previous versions were great with a large DVD library.

Cons

No matter how hard I tried, neither the CNET, nor the Author's Site, wood download.???????

Summary

Based upon past history, this concept and Game Hunter, are very good. I wish I could figure out to to download v 1.1.24.

HELP PLEASE! I have a new 27" iMac, and don't understand this problem.

"Fixes need for keeping track of <br />DVD well"

August 26, 2011  |  By Tiger_Steve

 |  Version: DVD Hunter 1.1.17

Pros

This is a great program, but I have DVD Hunter 1.1.16. Don't know what changes were made.

Cons

Difficult to move data to a computer where the DVD's, until you work through it. It CAN be done. Just email the data to the remote computer as an attachment to your own e-mail.

Summary

VERY useful, but many times Best Buy does not still sell the versions you have. I thought you were going to include Amazon.com as an additional source of data.

Many know the actor's, but not the Studios, Director, etc. This option will allow a better narrowing the the version you have - instead of a "collection" of DVD's

"Great Product"

July 31, 2011  |  By RedRiverD

 |  Version: DVD Hunter 1.1.16

Pros

Fairly easy to enter information, I love the autocomplete button, when the movie is in there it is awesome.

Cons

It could list more of the stars when using autocomplete!

Summary

It is a very good program, and once I get all my DVD's listed it will be a great source to let me know which DVD's I have and which ones I need to obtain.

"catalog of DVD disks"

July 04, 2011  |  By Tiger_Steve

 |  Version: DVD Hunter 1.1.12

Pros

Easy to add movies

Cons

Relies, totally, on merchants offerings. Try to list the three Terminator issues, and if the merchant sells the individual DVD's or a package of two, or so.

Can't seem to allow a pick of the one(s) you are interested in, if they no longer sell it!

Summary

If I can't catalog the individual DVD's I own, rather than a box-set I don't, then the utility is limited.

Maybe someone has run into this, and has a solution?

"Best DVD cataloging application available"

April 06, 2011  |  By melzajr_dotmac

 |  Version: DVD Hunter 1.1.7

Pros

Ability to sync multiple computers and the ability to search multiple databases to find details about both old and new movies.

Cons

Minor but to sync having to have app running on both computers.

Summary

Absolutely the best way to keep track of both personal and rented dvds. Details about cast & crew are very interesting.

"Cannot use it."

January 29, 2011  |  By eldonray

 |  Version: DVD Hunter 1.1.4

Pros

Don't know any.

Cons

Not programed for G4 Macs.

Summary

I have a number of DVDs that I need to organize and am hunting for a program to help. I'm sure it is a unique program, but I have a G4 laptop and the program only works with Intel processor.
