Okay program for cataloging movies, but the database search capability is overstated at this point.

IMDB title search is hopeless. Part of the problem may lie within the IMDB search engine. Searching within the IMDB website is hit or miss, whereas searching the IMDB web site with a Google search yields quick and accurate results. This is especially true for less popular titles. Once the IMDB ID is entered into DVD Cache, querying the IMDB database pulls down quite a bit of the information, but not all.

Other choices for database search sites is limited and few work consistently, save for Amazon. Some don't seem to work at all. Needs ability to add other search sites easily, even if data must be entered manually.

Personally, I would like the ability to associate multiple graphics with each movie.

IMDB querying is STILL not working since 4 month !! Posters are ok now, but that's all... No language, no country, no duration....etc
Update for nothing!

This was my bad. I got the problem worked out. My pictures/dvd cache posters file was read only. No idea how it happened.
Sorry for a negative comment for this great program.

Thanks for the comment. Problem: each entry is duplicated 5-6 times.

I'm glad that it still works on my G4 with OSX 10.4.11 and I surly hope that I can keep on using it with this OSX version.

I noticed that the app saves the images in the ".tiff" format. These images tend to take up quite a bit of space. Wouldn't it be better if they were saved as ".jpg".

Thanks for a great app! Keep up the great work!

Indeed, I was thinking the same thing, JPG would be better, also when I want to export my list as HTML, with JPG I could also include the pictures in my webpage. :)

I didn't have any the issues that you listed. I run the Mac Mini with 512 mb ram. I don't have a scanner or iSight so I hand keyed in my 392 title collection. On occassion I encountered a no result for a UPC code but a simple title search located the movie. I opted not to use a secondary lookup, located at the bottom of the search screen, and received 98% of my finds from Amazon. The only real issue I had was that the export to iPod produced a file that weighed in at 1.2 gig.

Other than that...this app worked wonderfully.

Great app. But I still wait for an option to change date fomat (especially purchased date) construction and storing in database as I live far from US.

DVD Collector had trouble on 22 Sep 2003
• I just noticed that when there is no picture for a movie it cannot be added.

• A simple sample of an HTML conversion can be found at:
http://morefood.net/movies.html

I used a stylesheet for the looks (the stylesheet is a bit complex, since it was used for a lot of pages). Furthermore each movie is contained in a separate table.

Great start! There are some bugs though... DVD Cache doesn't remember certain things: I live in europe and list my DVDs as PAL, yet every time I reopen a DVD file the selection has reverted to NTSC... Program doesn't remember column resizing either, for example roles/Actors. Also if you manually enter the name of the Producer, it stays there with the next DVD file you enter. Same thing with genre. (not great when you enter a thriller first, then next DVD is one of my kids' or vice versa...) And why is "preferences" greyed out in the Menu? Anyway keep up the good work, you're well on your way to making something sellable!

For those of you complaining about cover art and related items, like International versions (some endings differ from country to country) this is something to take up with IMDB, not Chris Campbell who has done a nice program that really isn't really at beta stage yet, but I'm using it anyway ;-)
