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.
Updated minimum system requirements.

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.
If I am wrong, I will apologize - I wasted my money on this. Its great to have all this information about each item. However, it is useless unless you can find the item. I have found no means to input a location, numbering, or some other way lo locate the desired item. With several thousand items, that is a major concern, and really the only reason I purchased this app.I have recently migrated from windows to Apple OS and of course cannot use Ant Movie List, which I have used for a very long time. As yet I have been unable to import my files to any degree of satisfaction. If anyone has a solution, I am open to suggestions. Update: My apology, I spoke a bit too soon. After receiving some advice from the developer, I have since managed to import my files from Ant Movie Catalog, clean up a few errors and complete a backup. After learning more about the app, I would certainly recommend it. I will say though that it can be a bit intimidating at first. Thanks to the developer for the opportunity make amends for a bad review.

Best option I’ve found on the Mac - After seeing the tiny number of reviews, most of them poor, I realized I should leave one. Moved to DVDPedia after Delicious Library moved to version 2 (which was an absolute mess). Tried every option I could find, and settled on this. I’ve been using it for over 5 years now, and it’s a decent organizing and library tool. Helps keep several thousand titles (including my ancient laserdiscs!) findable.
Can not find By Bar Code Search - This app is useless unless it can actually do a barcode search and come up with reasonable results the majority of the time! I don't expect perfection but in my attempts of scanning barcodes I am getting useless results every single time! I scan the same items on different apps and have no problems finding the movies! I used to use this app and appreciated it's eas eof use then several years ago this issue arose and upon checking back today it seems to not have been fixed. Be wanred - unless you want to add everything manually.... go elsewhere!
Well it _used_ to work - I’ve been using the previous version (purchased from Bruji’s website) for years. I just noticed that it’s now on the Mac App Store, so I decided to buy it there to further support Bruji and to have the app serviced and available through the store. Initially, the store version was working fine, but this morning I launched it and all of a sudden I’m getting an error stating “Part of the path to the database file is not writable; check the permissions on /Volumes. Data was not saved.” I’m running High Sierra, and I’ve made no configuration changes recently.
