Projects / VideoDB


VideoDB is a database to manage your personal video collection. It's designed for videofiles but you can also put your DVDs, games, and VHS tapes in it. It features fetching movie data/covers from the Internet Movie Database (IMDb), Amazon, Allocine, DVDInside, DVDPlace, Google, OFDB, and TV-Tome, local caching of cover images, an option to mark movies as seen, a search by genre or title/subtitle/plot/cast data, a filter for TV episodes, a random movie function and a simple borrow manager. Optionally, it features user management and authentication for sharing the database with others and adding custom fields. The design is completely customizable by templates. There is PDF and XML export, RSS support, and online help.
