This looks dead to me. You better check before buying.

I downloaded the latest trial version because I am looking for new DAM type application.
I have been looking at Mediaboard, MediaDex, Portfolio, Aperture, IView and Lightroom.
The one thing that sets Mediaboard apart from ALL of the others is the complete and total lack of support.
I had an apparently simple question about mysql and have so far sent 12 emails in both english and german and have receive zero response.
There is no forum, no knowledgebase, nothing. You are on your own.

Why anyone would waste the nearly six hundred bucks for the workgroup version with this level of support is beyond me.

I have been asking around in other forums and have not found any user who has ever received a response from them.

Do not waste your money.

I needed to finally buy an app to catalog my stock photos, clip art, and job graphics. I had the free iView Media 1.0 that came with my Mac, but because I didn't want to upgrade it (due to cost and the fact it is now MS) I demoed all the contenders listed on MacUpdate. I narrowed it down to Mediaboard One and QPict, which I then put head to head. I started with QPict which had various crashes. I did like a couple things about it so I attempted again. I soon realized it really didn't have the flow and organization that I wanted, as it automatically listed it's own interpretation of so many folders and categories which became a mess, and indecipherable from my real organized folders. But I gave QPict one last shot and imported my entire library into it, which took an extremely long time (from morning to night). At the very end, when it was doing its final indexing, it crashed, and I lost the whole day's worth of work. Also, I had the program make references to the real file, not store the actual file, but still the QPict size was huge compared to the database created by Mediaboard One.

My choice was clear: Mediaboard One. When I tested it out with just a few files, I could immediately see it organized my files the way I wanted them to be. By using "Smart Add", it let the folders appear the way I have them organized on the hard drive. It also allowed me to assign keywords, etc. at the time of import. If I want to change a keyword later, it is very easy, and because of its right pane, you can even select one graphic and change the keyword in the pane without going to another window. Doing a search for a keyword is lightning fast, and accurate. It allows you to set up Smart Folders also. So I then imported everything, which went very smoothly and took less time. Never once did this app crash, and it felt so stable that I didn't fear the beach ball as I imported one folder after another without pausing.

I'm extremely pleased with my purchase which I quidkly made yesterday, and without reservation, recommend this app highly.

I find this software to be quite usefull. Especially usefl is the abilty to use a MySQL database server to store info, which makes it accessible to an entire network. It is also fairly easy to export this data from MySQL and use it in other ways.

Having said that, there is one big limitation that I wish they would address. Mediaboard will not scan media files without a file extension such as .mov or .dv. In other words, it will not look at standard Mac OS X file types and creator codes. When I emailed the authors about this, I never even got a reply.

I doesn't work for me either. Nothing happens whenever I try to create a new catalogue or import pictures/movies/etc. So what's up with this app?!

Running 10.4.1 (and QT 7.0.1) on my iBook 1,2 GHz.
