If you’re like me, then you love movies. I’ve got literally hundreds of DVD’s in my movie collection. Some of them are physical, some are digital; but they all need organizing. This is where EMDB saved my bacon. It’s a DVD collection app for Windows and its pretty cool.
EMDB is a small utility to keep track of your DVD collection. The app allows you to keep your DVD collection up-to-date. It features automatic data import from IMDB, and can export data to csv, text or to a complete website. It also has thumbnail cover previews.
The thing that I really like is its loan tracker. With it, you can keep track of which friend and relatives have borrowed which movies. Remember the saving my bacon part… ? Yeah…that was it. With such a large movie collection, I’ve got friends and relatives pulling things out of my movie cabinets all the time. With EMDB, I know who has what, and how long they’ve had it.
EMDB is a decent DVD catalog manager. The fact that it can pull all of the relevant meta data you would want from IMDB is pretty cool. It would be a winner just with that feature. Its loan tracker, however is what really attracted me to it. I’ve got people sticking their hands in my DVD collection all the time. EMDB makes it very easy to know who has what, and where I might be able to find it when it stays gone too long.
