Just purchased this software and it does EXACTLY what I need, ie, a fast link to my ripped DVDs. Picks up all the information from IMDb, even for my arty-farty films. This program is a God-send. Thank you. The user interface by the way may not be the prettiest, but it is intuitive and flexible. For instance you can add your add extra data to all the records, particular to your needs (I added a field for the location of the video_ts file, ie Hard Drive 1, so that I only have the hard drive in use powered up). Thanks again.

I bought a copy of DVD Database X about a year ago, and have been extremely happy with it. Consequentially, I haven't even bothered to look at any other DVD inventory programmes. My old G3 Graphite Imac didn't have an Isight camera, and I was only on dialup, but it was able to find pretty well all my movies. The few exceptions were some Aussie films that aren't available in the US, so I had to add them manually. No big deal. The old Elvis Presley movie "Girls, Girls Girls" caused a bit of a headache though (remember, Joe?) In February I bought a new Intel Core Imac, and now I can fit the whole application on the screen at once. Brilliant. Just like iTunes, you can alter the sequence of the columns and their width, as well as customizing some fields if you want. (I'm sure you'll find everything's covered). You can do searches based on anything you like (Title, Year, Director, Plot, Genre, Actors, etc.). You can also give each DVD a rating out of 5 stars. Earlier this week I upgraded to Version 1.7.1 (with a lot of help from Joe Kusterbeck, the wonderfully patient designer of this software) and the interface now looks even better. There is a cover display option where all the DVD covers are laid out in neat rows , alphabetically. Talk about how to impress your friends.

The only thing I haven't used is the ability to download trailers onto your computers' hard-drive, but I'm happy enough without that. Money well spent frankly.

Joe Kusterbeck, the designer of this programme, has always replied to my e-mails, sometimes within hours, despite the time difference between Australia and the US. He has been incredibly patient explaining things to me in layman's terms, even when it was bleeding obvious to him, but not to me.

I highly recommend this programme for cataloging your DVD collection. I do not believe there is a better one on the market.

Software is solid.

Really wish you could create collections and print collection lists. Available in other sofrware applications which is a bummer.

Search is also burried in menu bar and not in interface which is totally aggrivating.

Updates in this regard would be fantastic.

DVD Database X is crummy but functional software. The UI won't win any awards but the software works and fills a gap. I'm using it to track the DVDs I have purchased and ripped (using MacTheRipper) to a 1 Terrabyte raid hanging off a server in the garage. The thing that DVD Database X does is give me playback if I tell it where the VIDEO_TS folder is. Delicious Library does not. Having said that, the UI is god awful. If I had the time, I'd write something better. With any luck, someone else will in no time at all.

In case the developer is reading things, the top thing I'd like to see is drag and drop support. Let me drop a VIDEO_TS folder on to the list of movies. Pop up the display to ask for more information and perform an Amazon or IMDB query. Add drag & drop to the VIDEO_TS folder thing in the dialog.

Excellent software -- yeah, it costs some $$$, but doesn't anything that is the best cost something? I looked at all of the competition and this is the best. The search by UPC code is amazing; and quick if you can type. Also, the Amazon search to input movies works well too. Anyway, I just finished inputting all of my DVD collection into the Mac; piece of cake, not one stumble. This is a piece of software that delivers just like the rest of OS X; simple to use yet very effective.
