microsoft windows Probably the best way of managing and maintaining a movie collection is to make use of a movie database software. We have covered several software programs in the past like the video collection software Movienizer, Eric's Movie Database or the movie collection manager Griffith. Today's movie database software is MBase 2, a portable software program that is available with an English and German interface.

MBase 2 makes it dead easy to add and manage movies. The only input that is required is the name of the movie. MBase 2 will then perform an Internet search for the movie and display results. It is up to the user to pick the best result from the list. All information about a movie, including actors (including pictures), director, movie covers, genre, year or description are downloaded and added to the various fields in the software once a movie has been identified.

It usually takes less than 30 seconds to add a new movie to the movie database. It is still possible to change certain information although that is usually not necessary. A quick link to Wikipedia is provided as well which can be used to add information easily or retrieve additional information and links.

MBase 2 comes with a loan management module to keep track of movies that have been loaned and extensive statistics. MBase 2 is a comfortable portable movie collection software.

      Check out either Kodi or EMDB. Those are the best, free solutions I know of, if you don’t care to have a sketchy server and/or some funky browser based tool.

    All My Movies is also one of the best software for movie collectors.

      As for for paid options go, All My Movies looks okay, and they offer a 30 day trial, and it’s still being updated.. Yet based on the screenshots on their site and recent YouTube video reviews, the GUI looks dated and limited. For my PC use, I want a full wall of posters, with black background. If I was to pay, then I want something that looks modern, like Kodi, which is free.

    Nice application but lacking in its lookup capabilities. Especially with many US films, where it frequently seems to be unable to the locate cover art and plot summary.

    Very good at gathering up actor information however.

    Interface is somewhat non-standard for a Windows app. Interesting to note there’s no QUIT choice to exit the app from the main menu.

    Definitely beta at this point. Hopefully, the finished product will be better
