DVDpedia is a movie cataloging application that retrieves all information about your movies from the Internet via keyword or UPC scan, so you have time for more important things like watching movies.

Accessing several international movie sites, including Doghouse, the program's own media server, DVDpedia lets you retrieve information for DVD, Blu-Ray and VHS. To search, enter keyword combinations - movie title, director, actor, studio, etc. - or scan the UPC and let DVDpedia do the rest.

Create smart collections and start a wish list for those movies you don't own yet and a borrowed collection for those you want back. View your entries as a standard list, browse only the covers or use the info view for a personalized look of DVDpedia. Share your collection with friends using the customizable HTML export templates and learn more about your own collection with the Statistics feature. DVDpedia comes with full Spotlight integration.


Release Notes:

Improved energy efficiency.
Doghouse search speed and interface enhancements.
When showing special filtered results with a footer, clicking the x in the search field will set the filter method back to the user's preferred setting.
Bug fix: links in the details view were not working correctly under 10.12.4 macOS update
Bug fix: clicking on last read date in statistics and filtering the view to show those results did not work correctly.
Bug fix: smart collections for last seen/read/played did not update immediately after using the Mark As Seen/Read/Played menu command.
Bug fix: Show search filter text when toolbar is on text only mode. (known bug: only displays if launching into text mode, not after switching.)

I've been loving it for years! - Years ago I took a thorough look at all of the cataloging apps I could find. In the end I chose DVDpedia. I am still very happy with this program and it continues to surprise me (in a good way). Every time I think of something new I want to do with my data, I generally can find a way to do it with DVDpedia. The really good, key features for me are the auto-incrementing CollectionID number and the fact that you can define custom fields with default values. You can also define a list of auto-fill values for all fields. In other words, you are not completely locked into the developers way of doing things. Also, some standard export options are provided so that your database doesn't get trapped in this program should it go away down the road. Unfortunately, the companion iOS app seems to have been abandoned. In spite of that, DVDpedia is a great app (and I rarely give glowing reviews.) So far I have not seen any problems with the database conversion to version 5.

Review by crabbyoldmannc

Delicious is FAR better... - I bought this program for my wife’s use based on its supposed capability of using a bar code scanner for item entry and then retreiving information about the entry automatically. What was not known to me is that you have to jump through hoops to access the Amazon database that is standard with Delicious Library. Granted this program will allow a lot of data to be associated with each entry, but this feature is over shadowed by the lack of ease of use. And as most people know, if momma win;t happy, no one is happy. SO, again, save your money… get Delicious… you will be far happier…..
