    Does anybody have recommendations for software that can be used to catalog a DVD library collection? Bonus if the software can do a web lookup to get additional information like DVD Profiler -

    dvdcache is awesome. it looks it up your movies on imdb and puts the dvd artwork there. it also works with your address book so you can tell who is borrowing your movies. only thing i dont like about it is that it doesnt have its own icon yet, which is why it isnt in my dock.

    I tried out about five today, and it looks like I'll be registering DVDcache. I was very impressed when I finished putting in my DVDs, then tried a game just for kicks and it worked. Now I can actually keep track of people depriving me of Ikaruga...

    Anyone able to help out here?

    This is now the only thing i have left to arrange since my switch.
    Seems none of the apps I've glanced at are up to the standard I am used to coming from a... you know.... that other OS.

    I used to use DVD Profiler - which was good - but unreliable... and clunky... but had good level of detail, good functionality, displays, options, etc.

    I even then swapped to a new local app that was being developed DVD Collector (different to the Mac based DVD Collector though) by a guy here in Australia - which was showing GREAT promise!

    But alas I've looked around and none seem to be what I want?
    I opened DVD@home briefly
    viewed DVDAttache, DVD Database X, and DVD Cache.

    DVD Cache seemed to be the better of an average bunch (or am I being picky?)

    None seem up to the level of what I want. Sure a few of them were able to look up movies from either Amazon or IMDB which is great.
    Most seem to have some sort of Loan system (but not loan history),
    and very few of them seem to have a Purchase history or fields,
    but almost none had a front end layout that seemed pleasant to the eye with sufficient detail for me.

    Similiarly the images loaded seemed only thumbnail - and not necessarily anything but R1 titles or coverarts.

    So - what is everyone using to manage their DVD collection?

    Delicious Library

    Check out Delicious Library from www.delicious-monster.com

    It looks fantastic, and is out in the next week. Got an iSight it will be even more useful as the iSight can act as a barcode scanner.

    Mmm this looks interesting!
    Initially the most professional and promising I've seen yet!
    Thanks mate!

    Seem to be able to customise the layout, seems very R1 centric but most apps seem to be.

    Can you edit all the details? including the artwork? alot of the images don't seem to be the same as the R4 titles.
