How do you keep track of your DVD collection?

What program do you use?

Currently I am using Excel but I want to use a specific program for DVD collection...

So far I am thinking of

http://www.collectorz.com/movie/

Anyone has this?


Oh I tried searching if there is a thread already but it seems there isn't, which id kinda odd, maybe I did not search hard enough. If there is a thread already please post thanks!

Chalk another one up for DVD Profiler. I love the look and feel of the new 3.0.

I have Collectorz, but since the new version of DVD Profiler was just released, I'm using that more often.

Ant Movie Collector. By far it is the easiest to get up and running with (since it has IMPORT capabilities). It does a nice job of handling those "homegrown" discs too. Although it provides many templates and scripts out-of-the-box, it is easy enough to create custom reports.

I use DVD Aficionado for a conformity reason but now it looks like DVD Spot - Oh well.

I also use Word Document to list films that I have watched and owned (*) in order of release years ie.

Faust [1926] F.W. Murnau
*Metropolis [1927] Fritz Lang

I find it very helpful for my study and reference.

I started using DVD Aficionado initially and at about the 100 mark dumped everything into
DVD Profiler. I used their 2.x version and recently purchased the 3.x version. High res scans, lots of details in each profile, reports, nice for browsing and filtering your collection.

Hands down the best program for keeping up with your DVDs (and CDs, books) is Delicious Library.

But of course you'll have to upgrade your computer to a Mac.
