Very handy application. I really like the phone app sync for keeping my catalog up to date.

I have been using this for years. Overall it has been a good app to track my DVD's, BluRay's, 4k, & Digital Movie Collection. Not sure what happened, but now the IMDb information is missing on almost every search I do and in the last month that has been well 35-40 movies. Why? I upload my collection to Doghouse collection weekly. First, we lost Amazon and now it seems I must manually add IMDb too.... Frustrating and time-consuming.

Das Programm kann leider keine HD scannen (wie z.B. Plex) und die Ergebnisse mit einer IMDB oder ähnlichem abgleichen. Bei einem Bestand von 3000 Filmen verzichte ich darauf 18.- auszugeben und dann monatelang Filme zu registrieren.

constant crashes. it can catalog movies ok. Just importing a folder works which is cool, but if the folder has a bunch of tv shows with the correct title - seasonEpisode, dvdpedia does not update the info for them. must be an issue with how the app talks to imdb or the tv database.

Finest piece of software available and great (fast) customer service. Regular updates and superb graphical interface. It puts so much information about movies at your fingertips. Indexing your dvd collection makes your collection all the more valuable. With over 3500 titles I'm not always sure what title is in my library and I don't want to buy duplicate titles. With DVDpedia at my service I never will. Well worth every penny!!

I used to use DVDpedia for my collection until the camera no longer worked to scan barcodes. It still does not and is completely useless. I contacted Support only to get nowhere and given an excuse that the camera is trying too hard to focus. Anyway, Delicious does not have any issue whatsoever capturing barcodes off my movie media.

I have been using it for years and it is just the best for a reasonable price. Updated on a regular basis. Room for some tweaks on printing side like being able to print a DVD case cover. Other than that, I have had no problems. Intel iMac, OS X 10.6.8. Highly recommanded.

I spontaneously decided to try out DVDpedia today since I experienced a couple of issues with DVDHunter in the last months (very slow, wrong content shown for selected movie, delays in processing tasks, uncomfortable handling of database, faulty smart collections etc.). Downloaded DVDpedia and everything works flawlessly. Easily imported the database that I exported with HunterExporter. Just dropped it on the DVDpedia icon. Done. Immediately it showed error free all the contents of my movie collection. Was able to create all kind of smart lists without any trouble in a jiffy. Great Mac-like experience. Definitely worth the price. The only downer is the iPhone app that conveniently is available too. First of all you have to pay in addition, that policy is not really up to data any more. Second it works not very nicely. I thought after the synching I will be able to survey my carefully arranged smart collections... No. All you get is the library that you can also alter a bit on your iPhone, but why would you wanna do that? Makes much more sense to import all the predefined categories too. Well, anyway, in my opinion the DVDpedia is good work.

A long time I was working with Delicious Library 1 & 2 and I was happy with all the given features. But with the time I wished me some other features like linking to Trailers on my HD or the web like over YouTube. I go sometimes in contact with the developer over mail or on their "complicated" feedback forum, but nothing has changed over the years. Also the application was slowing down with my growing collection (over 400 DVDs). The final brake with Delicious I made, as it was more and more clear that they won't develop again an application for iOS. Well, there was one in the past, but the dev. run in trouble with using the Amazon API and he dropped the mobile client. Now I'm working with DVDPedia for around one year and it works so great for me. The beginning was a bit tricky, because I has problems to import my Library from Delicious Library 2, but after I contact the support over Mail, they helping me in less hours. So the support is gorgeous at ever point where you need help or has suggestions. Also I can insert now a lot of more details around my movie collection as I ever can do before and I love the connection to a wide range of different sources to complete the movie informations... For example: If you fill in the IMDB ID of the movie, you can simply import all the information's of the selected movie in seconds. If you fill in the original title of the movie, you also can safe the time to fill in the IMDB ID, but for German movies this will often not work and I'm a German user. Also I love to have some own free forms, where I can insert keywords who I prefer and the application will remember this keywords for future filling. And the best thing is, that there is a mobile application available to, to sync my full collection with all the list's who I created. This will safe me also sometimes a bit of money or time, because in the past who I using Delicious, I bought sometimes a movie two times in the store. The only thing who can be a bit better is the handling here and there. For example... If you hit the shortcut "cmd + n" it will create a new folder. Personally I would prefer it will create a new entry for a new movie. But the command for this is "cmd + f". Well... F for found I think. But If I would found something, I prefer to using the search in my own lib and not for a new movie. Also I missed sometimes a bit greater OS interface. Well.. It's a database, I know... But pls. let me dream a bit ;-)

Excellent program! However... - I hate the sort feature that omits articles like "A", "The", etc... because it behaves differently that the Finder, and therefore my sorted list of files in the Finder doesn't match the list in DVDpedia. A way around is to use the "SortTitle" field, but it is a pain to edit all those lines manually, it is only OK for a few exceptions but I just have too many entires to edit. It makes more sense to have Preference to choose whether sorting is desired by omitting articles or not. I would also love, for expert users, to be able to open the DVDpedia database in an external program such as Bento or Filemaker in order to make global edits. For instance, I wish I could automatically fill the "Sort Title" field with the first letter of the "Title" field.

The program crashes my system quite often, especially when I click on the movie to play from the program. One MOST annoying thing is that when I search for details about a moie on IMDb, the progam chooses one of the choices (some of the time it is the wrong one). Then I have to delete each of the categories in the listing and try to manually search for the movie myself. The only way to erase the details about the movie is to delete the movie itself - all I want to erase are the wrong details, and not the movie itself.

I love this app. It is so Mac, exactly what Mac is no longer to do (eg the latets iMovie, iDVD and QT). It is so easy and beautiful to use, quick and neat. The pleasure of choosing films and having any information at a glance is uncomparable. It actually makes one feel like watching films that would have been injustly ignored with other movie storage/cataloging. Eventually, the following improvements could be appreciated : - larger size of the covers in the full screen mode - large choice of sites from where to draw the cover picts and movie details - automatic removal of useless informations drawn from the websites (eg. price) - when a search is made using a director or an actor as the criterion, the selection of a given movie interrupts the search process. Then, the search cannot keep going from where it was paused, it has to restart from the beginning (reloading many pages of movie lists sometimes). Therefore, it can be slow and cumbersome when a large catalog is started.

Absolutely the best investment i made as a switcher from pc to mac with more than 1200 movies in my database (ant movie catalog) DVDpedia was able to import them in a breeze I like the flexibility to index the files the way i want because they're on different locations so i name my collections and numbers according to the stored location, never have to search long for one of them. The ability to search moviesites like moviemeter, Filmaffinity, etc... is something not found on others so i can keep the movie info localized. Features: Would love to see more templates and print templates but this has nothing to do with the features they're rich packed dvdpedia is aviable in Spanish, French, German, Italian & Dutch localizations (love that last) Easy of use: well designed a kid could work with it, and its so flexible that it's even challenging for more pro users. Stability: using it almost a year now and it never crashed on me Value: worth every cent of it one of my first apps i will instal on my mac.

Version 4.5.3 "improvements:" >List view button updated >Added missing gradient to reflection in Add/Edit panel >Date Added not set for some users This called an update? Hardly. This is a free promotion for the developer. Sure, this is a very well conceived program, but don't invite ridicule by rearranging a few pixels, just so you can get extra press for your wares. Do the work and stop playing Limewire. There are plenty of significant improvements that can be offered beyond "Added missing gradient to reflection."

I own licenses to both DVDpedia and Bookpedia but have never been able to really use the softwares, because the Info Views are so bad. Delicious Library on the other hand is beautiful to look at (it has a truly designed interface) but it doesn't offer all the functionality of the 'pedias. Oh... How I wish the "Info View" in all these 'pedia apps was not ugly as hell... And yes I tested them all, including every single extra listed in the site... There's not a single one that looks even slightly "designed"... they're just "put together". How hard is it to hire some real and talented designers to create amazing and professional looking templates to make the apps "look" as good as I know they "are"? What good is it to rely on user contributed templates if (apparently) only amateur and/or bad designers seem to give it a try? This is just a comment... I will not post it as a review (with stars) because I really believe these apps ARE good and I really hope they LOOK good in a near future... But still, the lack of proportion, alignment and visual hierarchy to the information, in all these view templates is incredibly low quality... I know taste is a matter of personal opinion, but I truly don't believe ANY good designer can take a look at those templates and not be disgusted.

I've got a huge collection of DVDs and Video Games, and have long wanted a first class library management tool. I've tired FileMaker, web based utilities, Delicious Library, and a few lesser known shareware programs, and I can say this is hands down the best of the bunch. It's easy to use, feature rich, very snappy even with large collections, and takes full advantage of Leopard's features. Heck, with the cover flow feature in the finder, I rarely have to open it other than to add new titles. It even has a nice iPhone companion app. I wish they offered an "all in one" version of the pedia apps, but that's really the only complaint I have, and that's not really a complaint. If you're looking to manage your collection of DVDs, Games, Books, or CDs on a Mac, the Pedia apps are the best tools for the job.

Very good cataloging program. I actually prefer this one to delicious library for a couple of reasons: it starts faster and also the program is responsive, the library cache for the images is pretty small compared to that used by delicious library. While the eye candy is definitely not up to par compared to delicious, the program's functionality is stellar.

A really nice program - even though it's not as attractive to look at as Delicious Library, it's fantastic for use in a home-cinema setup where you want to store all your movies on your hard drive and use this app to start them. Only complaint would be that the information pane would work better if it was positioned to the right of the screen, and the iSight import feature doesn't work very well. Other than this, a fantastic app!

I own a C2DMBP. Scanner feature worked once. I can't get it to scan again. I have tried it in brighter conditions, closer to the camera, farther away, at an angle, rebooted, etc. It simply doesn't work anymore, or if it does its twitchy enough that it doesn't work very well. With a catalog of over 500 movies I need this feature to work for any app I buy.

i have been using DVDpedia for about 2 years and it just keeps getting better and better. Like previous posters i had trouble with the barcode scanning but seems like bruji has sorted that out, DVDpedia now successfully scans all DVD's i have tried. This app was the very first app i bought after switching to the mac, i was surprised that such a cool app was so cheap! mac software developers truly are the best in the business. Do yourself a favour and give DVDpedia a try ... then if you like it, support a small developer :)

This is a really good program with all the features you'll ever need EXCEPT, like the previous poster mentioned, it has zero practical barcode scanning capability with the new computers that have built-in cameras. I ended up having to hook up my firewire capable camcorder to my mac and using that for the video input. Even then you had to work at making it be recognized - I had to give up on autofocus and hold the barcodes at a very specific place to get them to read reliably. At least the developers acknowledge this problem and are supposedly working on it... I also wish the default movie rating would come from IMDB and not Amazon. People who rate stuff on Amazon are usually biased to liking the movie because they purchased it in the first place (hence the ratings always seem higher). IMDB ratings aren't biased in that way and they also have many more votes to average things out.

Useless. The iSight scan is crap. Didn't work on any of my DVDs, on my iMac Core Duo. Not one, despite trying many times, moving the barcode around, turning every single light in the room on. You have to hold the barcode far too close to the camera to fill the alloted space (it's very difficult to hold it perfectly straight) and thus the image of the barcode gets blurred. Not one single DVD was recognised. This was with a latest-generation built-in iSight. Delicious Library recognised them *all* within a second of holding them up to the camera, even at an angle, and considerably further away. DVDPedia may have a nice, iTunes-like GUI, but if I have to manually load my 450 DVDs, forget it. Especially when there are other apps around that do the job better. I'm sorry, it isn't worth the hassle IMHO.

I really like this app. However, i'd love to be able to use on my TV, but the fonts are too small to read. If text could be made bigger and smaller (through a slider) that would be awesome. Also, when in "Cover View" it would be good to still be able to sort the view by various options (i.e Title, Genre, Duration... etc)

The updated features make this version a must-have. If you don't have it yet, buy DVDPedia. In fact, buy all the pedias you need (CD, Book and Game). I was a committed Readerware user for DVDs, CDs and books. When I started using the comparable pedia apps I couldn't believe what I was missing. The ability to generate .html pages, with graphics, easily is one big feature - the reporting options are great. It has better features in the advanced fields. Bruji has come a long way in making their automatic web search feature as good as the Readerware apps. This, and the other pedias, are really sweet apps if you want a database in which to keep track of your collections, and at a really wonderful price! Highly recommended!

This is the best of the DVD databases out there, for many reasons: 1) it's good looking 2) extremely stable 3) feature rich 4) Developer Bruji is continually improving the application, with frequent updates. They consider suggestions and feedback in a non-defensive manner. 5) Bruji is also EXTREMELY responsive to customer questions or issues, with replies to emails within 24 hours from reps who make sure the issue gets resolved. If you're looking for a DVD database, look no further.... this is it!

After searching for a convenient easy software to store, sort and manage my DVD collection, I tried DVDpedia. This soft had gone way beyond my expectations. It's easy, smart and comes in several languages. Plus the lend management tool is great. Now I really know where my DVDs are and DVDpedia can even prepare a remaining mail to the lenders. A must have. Consider the price and try to find better ;)

This software is the the best DVD manager out there. Period. Personally, I (and many others) would rather pay a small amount to a shareware developer for a program that WORKS than get something for free where the developer has no accountability. They are responsive to bug fixes and new feature requests (the ideal developer-user situation), and the application grows leaps and bounds with every minor point release. Test it out and see what you think. I'm sure you'll agree.

I've tried pretty well all the DVD database software available for OS X in a search for one that suited my needs. Finally, despite the availability of freeware programs that are similar, I registered DVDpedia. The feature set, development cycle and responsiveness of the developer were all things that influenced my decision. This is a great app that is worth the small price paid for it!

We have users with 1500 DVD entries, and the program runs very well. I myself have tested up to 3000 DVDs but not in everyday use, just sorting speeds, loading times, etc and it performs very well. The new cover image view can be sluggish with incorrect settings, depending on your computer you should adjust the image size. The bigger the images and the fewer images on screen at a time the better, that is the nature of images. The program is developed and tested on a 1.3 Ghz G4 with 512 RAM, and this more than sufficient, you have an even better computer, you lucky man, so there must be something else going on. If you would like us to look into this more email us with more details. Regards, Conor.

this is a gr8 program and i've also registered a while back. But i've noticed it becomes quite sluggish lately, maybe because i've got over 300 dvds entered now?? Speed shouldn't be an issue - i've a dual G5 with 3gig ram!

DVDpedia is still my favorite and allthough the configurable custom fields are nice, a lot of extra's could be added. What I would like to do though, is challenge the users of DVDpedia to come up with more interesting templates, using all available options, including interactive pages with JavaScript and search options. This would give the developers a chance to concentrate on the rest and perhaps encourage them to add a feature to use WEBTEMPLATES, templates that are not on your local disk, but in an online library, which can be updated without having to remove the older ones. This could also work for the other pediae...

Why not combine all your pedia apps into one super duper version called...are you ready? Wait for it.... MediaPedia! Brilliant if I do say so myself.

After looking at all of the other DVD library management applications out there, I decided to license this one. I have had no regrets! The developers respond quickly to requests, and this product is still the most full-featured one I have found. Keep up the GREAT work! As far as those who are requesting ISight support: I purchased a CueCat barcode reader for less than $10, and it scans the barcodes rapidly and correctly, and works with other products too!

It would be nice if Bookpedia, CDpedia, and DVDpedia were all integrated into one app. And if you add Isight support for reading barcodes, I'll be sold. The new Delicious Library has these features, but your application is faster and crashes less often.

I hardly ever review applications and I'm prudent about where I spend my shareware cash. But this program is simply great. The interface is clean and simple, the features are extensive, and the developers are very responsive to feature requests and bug fixes. Owning this software is the IDEAL shareware model and how other shareware programmers should interact with their users in developing their product. (I know because I've purchased many pieces of shareware and some developers--like MaxiBidder--are unresponsive, arrogant, or just simply treat their users like retarded children.) If you have a DVD collection, get this.

Summary of film is not always accurate. It seems to be pulling a customer review from Amazon. Other than that it's a great program!

Having tried just about every application of this sort for OSX, I can say that this is easily the best. The very iTunes-like interface is attractive, intuitive, familiar and very well executed. This is genuinely iTunes for your DVD collection. Unlike iTunes, it is written entirely in Cocoa, and as such, theme-friendly for GUI nuts like me. The interface is customizable, and able to display as little or as much information as you like. Typically, the main window displays basic info such as title, genre and rating, and a slide-out drawer caters for the rest, including such info as full cast, release dates, and even plot summary! The search system wisely combines information from both IMDb and Amazon to retrieve the most accurate results. A common flaw of other similar applications is that they only use one source or the other, meaning IMDb based results lack information such as price, and often have unwanted artwork such as theatrical posters rather than DVD covers. Similarly, results garnered only from Amazon will lack in-depth information on cast, crew and studio. The devoper has acheived the perfect combination with this search engine. DVDs can be added quickly and effectively, complete with all the information you could ever want. My fellow Europeans will be glad to hear that the preferences are well thought out and thorough, offering many options to default to European standards of Region 2, PAL, plus of course the abililty to retrieve results from Amazon.co.uk rather than .com. For the first time I have been able to add DVD after DVD without worrying about changing the artwork or technical DVD data. There are still a few minor bugs that need to be ironed out however... This may just apply to British prices, but my value statistic in the status bar constantly says -0.00, even though all my DVDs have valid values. Also, even though I have chosen a preference to exclude "wishlist" DVDs from the main library, they still remain there - even after restarting the application. These are minor glitches however, and shouldn't distract from the fact that this app is SLICK, PROFESSIONAL, VERSATILE, AND VERY USER FRIENDLY. Definitely worth $18 of anyone's money. I wouldn't complain if it was $30.

As an update to the missing entries problem, I can report now that, after having downloaded two or three updates to DVDPedia since the original problem with the missing DVD entries, I haven't experienced any further problems with the deleted entries. This seems to be the perfect program for my needs and it compares favorably with similar programs on the Mac platform. One inconvenience I've noticed is that after typing in the name of a movie with a simple proper name (like the movie "Maurice" for example), I sometimes get several hundred search results while the movie names that are returned don't even contain the name "Maurice." It might take five or 15 minutes to search though all the titles (depending on whether one is using a broadband or dialup connection) to find the entry that matches my movie. Apparently DVDPedia searches through the names of actors, directors, etc. to make matches, not just for movie titles. This may not be a fault of the program though.

What's going on here? I posted a comment here 2 days ago. I stated that my suspicion that about a third of the 400 movies I own had strangely disappeared from DVDpedia's database through some bug in the program. I checked back tonight and found that my comment had not been posted. Practically all of the 36 reviews of this were unabashedly positive, as if no one had encountered a problem or had a significant criticism. Well I do, and I did, and if someone is filtering these reviews because of content, I expect that this message too will disappear, just like so many of the DVD movie entries I painstakingly inputted and lost.

What if there was a NetFlix tool in DVDpedia, as in iTunes with the Music Store? It would allow you to browse the NetFlix site and view your Queue all within DVDpedia, and easily add DVDs you bought after having rented them from NetFlix right into your collection? This could integrate the review system and recommendations into DVDpedia? It seems like it could have some potential value if enough people that were using DVDpedia were NetFlix users. If you think so, please let the developers of DVDpedia know so they can consider it. I would pay for an upgrade with those features!

This program is AWESOME. The interface is beautiful, which makes it a joy to use. Of all of the other similar programs, this easily has the best feature set and best interface. It has served me well and has been worth every cent and much more. If you are into reading as much as you are your movies, you have to check out Bookpedia too. It's by the same folks, and it brings the same organization to your collection. AWESOME!!!

This program is fast, easy to use, has lots of great features and is always improving. It is by far the best one out of 4 that I've reviewed and the one I recommend to my friends and associates. It is inexpensive and worth every dime.

The most complete DVD catalog app out there for the Mac period! I would like to see more options for export. Specifically being able to edit templates easily. I don't have an HTML editor so I would like to be able to pick and choose which fields I want to export in the HTML export function. Also, Smartlists would be cool too. Keep up the tremendous job!

This is hands down the best DVD library tracker out there. Easy to use, speedy, and looks classy. I never had better luck finding my DVDs then with this keyword search engine. Right now my only suggestion is something I have yet to see in a DVD tracker, a 'view all covers' option, that would take you to the details of that dvd when clicked. this is the most intuitive way of viewing DVDs for me, and makes it like browsing through my physical collection.

excellent program! However, can i make one suggestion - please can there be a real Export To Web Sharing feature. iTunes Catalog supports this brilliantly, and i'd love to see the same within DVDpedia also. Sure, i know i can export and manually pick out the folder and then save... but it'd be great to have this automatically done by DVDpedia :-) Otherwise SUPERB application :-)

I have been waiting a long for for a media database that ties into the internet. This makes it all to easy, fast and so worthwhile! Great developer, listens to his supporters! I agree with other comments about having more parity with iTunes smart lists! Worth every penny if you are a serious collector and you like to loan your movies out.

I really like this application - I like it so much that I purchased it. I hope it continues to be developed. I would like to see a provision where you could click between two or more entries to place another record, like for instance: you have episode 1 with episode 2 beneath which may be followed by a few different other movies, but suddenly you found episode 3 to add, so you can insert it before the others directly under episode 1 and two...... if you get what I mean?

Cool program but it would be cooler with Smart Playlists like in iTunes. I would like to see Live Updating of movies when say I add a Comedy DVD it would update my Comedy Smart Playlist automatically. Other than that pretty cool.

Overall a very solid piece of software. I would like to see options to choose which fields to include when printing to PDF. I would also like to see a "cancel X" to the far right of the Search field, similar to the OS X Finder and iTunes. Fields like UPC, Region Coding, DVD Format (NTSC/PAL) would also be a bonus in the future, as well as pull-down menus in certain fields like in 'Rated' and 'Screen Ratio'. Also, being able to edit multiple DVD's would be time saving. I'm sure these features will be implemented in future releases anyway, but I thought I'd contribute my 2 cents. I've tried a lot of DVD organizers and this seems to be the best so far. Keep up the great work!

DVDpedia is the best DVD catalog product available. Clean, attractive interface, very easy to add, search, list print, export, and track your library. Had a couple of nit-picky suggestions and the developer responded in hours (!) before I had even registered. Yes, there are free alternatives that offer far less functionality and polish than DVDpedia. And if you are going to catalog a large library -- why complain about a program that costs less than even one DVD???? DVDpedia is off to an incredible start, and from the developer's interest and responsiveness -- DVDpedia is going to get even better! Great work Conor!

If it could display a "Year" column that would make it just about perfect. Having the year of release in the drawer section is okay but I like to be able see a separate column for "Year" instead.

The marketplace is full of this kind of shareware for this purpose, all around this pricepoint (plus or minus $5). Each has its on features, for instance, some have better interfaces, others catalog other things, some interface to the net and download data about the DVD and provide artwork. So far no package stands out for me as a clear cut winner. My advice is to research the topic first and try several packages before paying your shareware fee. You can easily do this by searching on MacUpdate using first the keywords "DVD Catalog", then after finishing researching the results from this search redo the search using the keywords "DVD Collection". These 2 searches should give you most if not all the entries on this topic.
