This application is awesome. I could go on and on but you get the picture. The only thing better than an awesome app would be the developer support. I sent the developer an email asking if there was any way to import the 580 or so movies in my DVD collection from DVD Cache. He emailed me back almost immediately asking that I send him some info about the app, which I did. Another quick email from him stated that setting up the import would be easy and that he would let know soon. Soon was right, in about an hour or less, he sent me a link to a revised Coollector Movie Database version that included import from DVD Cache. (no longer supported)
I used the import function and all my movies moved over without any errors. Great, great support, and a great application.

Oh wow!! This is a gem of a software! The ease of use is what drew me towards it. But its the movie recommendations that are making me stay! Excellent in every way. Guys do you also plan on making a database for foreign movies? That would be amazing! Or does it exist already? Sorry, I just am not finished with the exploration yet!

Hi! Thank you very much for liking our program!

Our database includes movies from all around the world. If you are missing some movies, you can request them on our forum, and they'll be added with the next update.

One of a kind. Loving it.
This will come in handy especially if you have tons of movies stored in your hdds.
And also great for searching your next movie or finding childhood memory with precious little clues.

One thing I'd see is to search just Movies(or TVs) with customizable vote count. This can give user more controls over what content they expect instead of seeing movies and TVs with all kind of vote count all over the place.

Hello Tom! Thank you very much for liking my work!

About the vote count, at the bottom of the filtered search you can set "IMDb popularity" as the order of the results. The most popular movies (those with the greatest number of votes) will be listed first. Personally I use it a lot because the blockbusters are the movies I like the most (I have mainstream taste, sorry).

To combine the "IMDb popularity" order with the "year" filter is a great way to fill you wish list ;-)

Thank you for answering.
the IMDb popularity function is great.
Though it will be splendid if it could be sorted by imdb voting at the same time.
For me, I've watched most of the popular films and looking for films liked in small crowd. Like The Criterion Collection but with my own choice.
I think if that, this software will be even cooler.

You just have to scroll the list to the position that you're interested in, knowing that the most popular movies are at the top, the least popular are at the bottom, and the others are somewhere in between.

If you want to list only the movies that you haven't seen, don't forget to set the rating filter to "not rated (not yet seen)" ;-)

Thank you very much, Hector, for the Mac version.

Why not including a link for Snow Leopard users, in your description ?

Thank you for the suggestion. I don't have a Dune player myself, and in fact I have a hard time understanding why people buy this kind of gears. In my view, for a movie fan, an HTPC is a much better option. For example, an HTPC could directly run Coollector with a remote. But probably I am missing something. Could you please explain ?

I had a look at your other reviews, and about SMBUp you said "Now i can stream moview from my mac to Mede8er with smb". That sounds interesting. If you have movies on your Mac, my program will scan them automatically (Tools->Scan my video files), and once added to the database, you can play them by clicking the play icon. Is it possible to watch them on your TV by streaming them to your Mede8er player ?

I'd like to note that Coollector isn't for DVD collectors only. You can also manage your video files, or even keep track of the movies that you've seen but don't own. And much more...

I watch probably 40+ DVDs on a DVD player (mostly with my 7-year-old). Not everyone has the resources to get a Blu-ray player or Mede8er player. Are you daft?

It's not a lie, Coollector Movie Database really is the "only program of its kind".

Have you downloaded it? Tried it? I doubt it!

Yes, there are many programs out there that manage your video collection. But Coollector's approach is unique. It's the only one that works the way it works.

I have downloaded and tried DVD Hunter, and here are the differences:

1) You launch DVD Hunter for the first time, and you're in front of an empty database.

You launch Coollector for the first time, and you're immediatly in front of an impressive movie database of nearly 90,000 movies, with cast info, pictures, IMDb popularity and rating, etc... Even before managing your movies, it's fun to browse the database, rate the movies you've seen (even if you don't own them) and discover new movies.

2) with DVD Hunter, you'll have to add each movie one by one, and input ALL the data (I'm amazed it doesn't even include a feature to import data from the internet).

With Coollector, all the data is already there. With a single click you can rate the movies you've seen. If you have videos files on your computer, the program can scan your hard disk and add them automagically. And for your physical medias (DVD, BLU-RAY, etc...), you can use our database of existing videos (yes, Coollector includes both a movie database and a database of existing videos).

3) DVD Hunter is so basic that it's not really to that kind of program that I wanted to compare Coollector. I meant to compare it with the most advanced programs who fetch the data from the internet. Well, Coollector is different from those programs because Coollector is movie-centric, while those other programs are all video-centric. If you search "Inception" in coollector, you get to that movie page, which includes a list of existing videos. If you search "Inception" with another program, you'll have to choose from the xxx videos that will be shown as a result.

For what it does, it's not surprising that DVD Hunter is free. And it's your right to like it. But many users won't be cheap and will prefer to pay and get a more powerful program.

You can go to our support forum, and you'll see that we also receive a lot of praise from our satisfied customers.

What's the point of your attitude ? You don't even test the programs you talk about. You call me a liar about a fact that is absolutely true. You belittle my program only because it's not free.

Don't you have better things to do with your life ?
