    Recommend me an application to help me manage my movies collection, please.

    I have 147 movies stored on my drive and I need an application which can index them and organize them into a catalogue.

    I have looked for such a program on Mac Update, Version Tracker, Softpedia, CNet, Download.com and Google with limited success.

    Recommend me such a program, please.

    Because iTunes wasn't designed as a movie manager? Why post it twice when it's obviously not been responded to anyways?

    What's wrong with just keeping them in the finder like they are now?

    I realize this has been mentioned twice, but let me say...

    I use iTunes to organize my movie collection, well over 400 movies. I can use the apple+i to change the album art, genre, title, and all other info. The problem is, if it's not encoded using itunes settings to begin with, iTunes, when you cnange any info re-encodes this info into the movie file itself. This can take a quite a lot of time. I suggest, if you go this route, highlighting all 'Action' movies, and then assigning them the 'Action' Genre, and then walking away for a bit while it plugs away at the files. It really is a nice way to organize them, easy to search, and easy to use...free and built in.

    with a mac you can just drag them in and it seems to work fine

    (Converter gives you a bit better quality on the full screen as apposed to iPod)
