Looking for good DVD inventory program

My wife says it's time to make an inventory list of all my DVD's so that it's easier to choose movies to watch when we have company.

I did a quick search on the web and found a few different DVD inventory programs out there.

Please recommend the BEST one for me.

Thanks,

Steve

Delicious Library



It's only for Mac, though.

I use DVD Aficionado and DVD Profiler. Both have their advantages and disadvantages.

Q: Does Delicious Library run on Windows PCs?

A: No, it doesn't, and we don't have plans for this in the future.

Delicious Library is very dependent on Mac OS X-only technologies and that is a major contributing factor to its success. Rather than porting the application to Windows or Linux, we would rather invest our time and resources in improving Delicious Library.

Also, we just really love the Mac.

Thanks for all the suggestions.

But with so many choices, I would appreciate others jumping in to "vote" for their favorite program so I can get an idea of which one to use.

Thanks again, Steve

I wasn't aware of Delicious Library, but being a rabid Mac fanatic, you can bet I'll be checking that out. Looks sweeeeet. Of course up 'til now I've always used FileMaker Pro, but that may change now that I've seen Delicious Library.

Um, it might also be worth mentioning to the folks who chimed in with this and that "dot com" that Steve was apparently looking for actual software packages, not just websites.

Well that mac one looks good but I don't have one. DVDAficionado suits my purposes for the most part.

Oh, and for anyone who complains that they refuse to develop a Windows version, think of all the Windows developers who refuse to develop for the Mac. Of course the difference is that most of the time there's something better available for the Mac, so we're usually not all that pissed about it.

Sorry for the topic drift, but the Mac vs. Windows thing started pretty early on in the thread.

I use 3, but if you want something to show your guests I'd say DVD Profiler is best. It lets you print out customized reports (with big covers, small covers, no covers, lots of detail, little detail) which is a handy thing to show your guests (when I want to do that I just print them out about 40 to a page and stick them in a binder). It's nice for those guests that don't take pleasure in getting down and dirty with your DVDs.

Not only are those comments not present, but at least from me, I was expressing frustration at *MS* for not being able to allow developers to come up with something similar for Windows. I think you Mac boys are too quick to the trigger sometimes.

Okay, I'll admit to having missed your "Damn MS" comment (and did you remove the "Bastards!" comment, because I find it hard to believe that it wasn't aimed at the developers), but mine was a general comment to anyone who was lamenting that there was no Windows version, not just you.

Furthermore, it's not MS who doesn't ALLOW developers to come up with this kind of thing. It may be more difficult to develop such a program under Windows, but I'm sure it's possible. If you want to blame MS for something, blame them for leading you to believe that you HAD to buy a PC and run Windows in order to get any serious work done, and blame yourself for actually believing that crap.

I personally love to hear people whine when they find out that something (MegaSeg, etc.) won't run on Windows, and probably never will. There was a lot of that over iTunes until Apple finally caved and ported it. People are also constantly whining about programs Apple bought, such as DVD Maestro, and turned into Mac-only apps because they're the best tools available and it leaves a big hole in the Windows-compatible software market. So again, it was a general comment, not just a response to your post.

Also, could people please stop posting websites??? The guy wants SOFTWARE, not websites. Sheesh!

I removed the comment because it was not clear that the "bastards" comment carried over from my previous post.

Frankly, a PC is just a better investment. They are cheaper, easier to upgrade and run 95% of the software out there. It always amazes me the pretentiousness of MAC owners. It's the same thing in the LCD/DLP/Plasma debate. The bottom line is the same - each OS has it's +s and -s.
