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!

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.

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.

I've been looking for a good piece of software to catalog my DVD collection since starting my migration to Mac about a year ago. I'd tried and earlier version of this software and didn't care for it. After seeing an updated version, I thought I'd give it another shot, but unfortunately I still enountered issues while trying to enter in my 200+ DVD collection: 1). When using the multi-UPC entry, and an actual bar-code scanner (the iSight scan option has NEVER worked for me on two different iSight equipped Macs) the initial entry finds the correct movie. As an example, the first season boxed set of Sopranos. Seeing that, I continue on and enter in another row of movies from my rack. Then the software wants to do additional lookups where it matched the correct movie/upc with an incorrect match. I have seven or eight boxed sets of different titles. Initially the software recognized them, but then as I continue through the process only one title out of maybe 10-15 actually makes it into my library. 2). When entering multiple UPCs there is no option to work with the list being going through the entire add process. So if you see a problem, you can do nothing about it until you finish the process. 3). When trying to use the iSight camera, memory growth brought my MacBook with 1GB of memory to its knees. Within a few minutes I was using 1+Gb of virtual memory and 800+ meg of real memory. I killed the program and restarted and the minute I activated the iSight memory usage goes through the room. But as I said, I've never gotten the iSight option to work anyway. I would seriously register this product in a minute if it would do what I need to do.

This app rocks! Downloaded it a few days ago and now have my entire DVD Collection catalogued. Wasn't aware that you could also catalogue Music, Books, and Video Games. This app does it all for one low price compared to other apps that you would have to purchase individually to cover all the catagories. And iPod support as well! Response from the Developer is quick. I'm running a Mac Mini Solo running 10.4.5. If you are looking for a simple, clean app for all your assorted media types look no further. This is the app you need. Keep up the GREAT work!

so i got all my dvd's in various sleeves with catalogue numbers--or as the software has it "media location"-- (i.e. B5 would be Sleeve B, Slot 5). i'd rather not have to go to the computer every time i want to browse my collection for a move and i'm bummed out that there isn't an option to print out all my titles with jacket cover artwork, basic info and media location so that i can simply flip through a hardcopy booklet. other than that it's a decent piece of software.

I am using DVD Cache 1.1 on a Mac Mini running Mac OS X 10.4.2 There is a serious bug in this version when it tries to 'Find' a tile using the IMDb. if you enter a title in the 'Movie Title' edit box, and have DVD Cache set to Source 'IMDb' Location 'USA' Format 'DVD' DVD Cache returns a single line in the Display window containing the string 'IMDB Title Search'. If you search the Amazon db instead you can still get limited data on the dvd. I WOULD NOT RECOMMEND THIS PROGRAM UNTIL THIS IS FIXED!! I HAVE SETN EMAIL TO THE DEVELOPER AND HAVEN'T SEEN A RESPONSE. I believe that IMDB must have changed their RPC/SOAP query format and DVD Cache 1.1 does not use the new format. but that is just a guess on my part.

I've always liked this small app, but never been able to fully trust it. I have twice lost access to the database of movies created by DVD Cache while upgrading versions (haven't tried re-importing into this latest version). The internet look up functions have at times been glitchy (a technical term meaning maybe it will, maybe it won't). There has just been a persistent beta, unfinished feel, to this app. I won't rate this version until I have had a chance to try it further, but I'm getting that "glitchy" "twitchy" feeling again. Check out the toolbar, for example. (Adding the Amazon menu item adds a second, faded, IMDB menu item. There appears no way to add the Amazon search option to the toolbar).

Smart remark # 1: Do you really need this program. If you say yes then you are saying that if your wife kids or friend borrowed a dvd and did not return it then you would not know it was missing. come on, get real. If you ever borrowed a tool from old pops tool box when you were a kid you would know the answer. You bet he noticed it was not there. Get over it Dev. this app is just unneccesary and $20.00 are you kidding me?

Nice idea`, but just far too buggy to be of any use. I have tried (5 times) to add a DVD to the database. Every time it fails, and every time the application crashes (with the "Application has exited unexpectedly, do you want to submit a bug report" requester). Fire up the application. Click to Add a DVD. Enter the DVD name, find it in IMDB and Amazon, click Add. So far, so good. Click Done. Oh, it didn't actually add it after all. Hmm, let's try again... hey, where'd the app go? It just died. Repeat ad nauseam. It's a shame, because the idea is good, and I REALLY need an application like this to track my DVDs, CDs and books. I'm more than willing to pay. Just not for something this buggy and unstable, I'm afraid. One to keep an eye on, but it's got a long way to go before it is usable.

I paid for 'pedia a day before I tried DVD Cache and in spite of being under the poverty line, I paid for DVD Cache immediately. I've had no regrets (other than having paid more for that other app I haven't used in almost a year.) Chris is a conscientious developer who responds immediately to any problems that have cropped up -- which are few and far between. I use this application every day and have more than 2000 movie titles, 1500 books and upwards of 1000 pieces of software that I've catalogued. I can't see using any other application - this one works, the developer continues to upgrade it, and it handles more than one type of media for one shareware fee. Definitely 5 stars.

Great Application. Been using it for many releases now, and have experienced very few problems with any of them. .98a is by far the best so far. Just got done adding about 400+ titles to my database with little problem. Only twice in those 400 individual title additions did it return no results from IMDB or Amazon when doing individual movie searches for adding a title. Just had to relaunch the app and the searches went through fine. Keep up the great work.

This is a really good application. I think it's not fair to give it a very bad comment when obviously it wasn't even tested properly. I used it for months now and I put all of my DVDs in (I do have a huge collection). Every few days there is an update and it's still possible to try it for free. Lot of features and works well. Sometimes I could see a litte bug but those were always repaired immediately. The first time you start it it takes some time until it opens, but then the speed is OK.

Collections work basically like iTunes's playlists. The Library collection is everything, you can create more collections by clicking on the plus or by dragging one or more movies into the collections drawer. Movies can be in multiple collections at the same time.
