Publisher's Description

Collectorz.com Movie Collector is a movie database to catalog your collection of DVDs, DivX files, VHS tapes, etc. Adding movies to the database is quick and easy - no typing needed. Just type the movie title and it will automatically download all information from various sources on the Internet (IMDb and DVD Empire), including the cover image. After adding your movies, the resulting database can be browsed, sorted and searched in various ways. Movie lists can be printed and exported to HTML, CSV files or XML. Use the integrated Loan Manager to track which movies you loaned and to whom.

Good movie database collector, paid for it some time back. Big drawback now is limited sources to get info/data from, but I just manually add info/data, like movie descriptions and back cover art from DVD Empire, as well as movie rating from IMDB. You also only get updates for the current base version(like if you buy version 6.0 and want the last version of the 6.x series), but you can always buy a temporary update license for a small fee later on if you so choose. I've never felt the need with the latest 5.x version.
Only 4 stars for limited movie database sources.

Downloaded, installed took look around and one look at the useless data base that is full of stuff I will not buy/order/rip to add to my collection is unwanted visual BS.
To add to the database I might as well be using a spreadsheet for all the lack of functionality that this program has allowed the user.

Recommendation is do not bother with this program.

I highly recommend users read this post:

Be warned, this is a third party site and not part of the collectorz.com site. There you will see that they are essentially snuffing the users of v5. I, for one, am pissed that I wasted all of this time and now I cannot get the movies I want to add without manually doing so or relying on a subpar database. Please, join me in telling Alwin (President, Collectorz.com) how you really feel.

Please note that as of today, 22MAR2009, there is a screenshot of a topic which had 6 pages of posts, which is now gone due to the team deleting it for containing negativity towards their product.

Again, I recommend staying away from this product. The users clearly do not matter to this developer.

Be advised, collectorz.com and the staff have deleted ALL negative posts on their forum. This was done so as to give the illusion that the product is being received with unmatched positivity. They are also trying to alienate their users that have purchased under the lifetime license program. Most of the users who complained were not only new users, but a good majority were the older users from before collectorz became big.

For more information. Many users from their forums have come to post about the experience. Be warned users who submit your entries, this might eventually become a subscription service where you have to pay for DB access, thus alienating the remaining lifetime users. Do you really want them making money off the work YOU DO to enter your movies? They have remained neutral on this stance about this happening but there are signs as some posts suggesting this have also been deleted. This is completely feasible give that you can no longer download this information automatically for over 50% of movies out there since you have to use their database. You are no longer able to use IMDB, DVD Empire, Amazon, or various other sites.

Previous versions worked wonderfully, but, as others have pointed out, for "commercial reasons", the latest V6 release has removed the ability for users to download movie info from various sources like IMDB and instead restricts users to using proprietary and woefully inadequate Collectorz database. To add insult to injury,the company also expects paying users to help fill the database for them after having deprived them of access to information sources that could automatically fill in the data.

This use to be a great product to reduce the work of creating a database of your movies. Now it is just another database program with very little to lift it above freeware offerings or creating your own.

I agree with the reviewer below (FixXxeR). This program has become useless since version 6 with the database change.

What did they do to this! They removed the ability to search any other database besides theres. Now you get entries, if at all, that are highly incomplete and they expect the users to pick up the leg work for them. I am sorry, this is unacceptable. They have lost a customer. Check out the forums

Before you review this, you might want to check your facts. Users who purchased the program under the lifetime license agreement are entitled to free upgrades. You simply have to contact collectorz.com for your license.

New version 5 is out, with some limited new features that apparently justifies it being a major update. (Box Set support... barely, and support for episodes of tv shows, also just barely).

Unfortunately the company has also suddenly decided to make customers pay for major upgrades.

That said, Movie Collector is a good application, but I'm one of several users disappointed by the lackluster latest version and their changed upgrade policy. I recommend you to use the trial and see if for instance lack of multi-disc support and box set details is of importance for you. If not, you'll be quite happy with Movie Collector!

Great piece of software here! I tried dvdprofiler, and the feature set of this just blows it out of the water. I love the fact that it can download its info from multiple different websites (not that a central DB is not a good approach, I just prefer this)

TOP NOTCH! Been using it for 3 years now, great product. Great features. The export to xml is awesome as I've begun work on a new site that provides a more natual interaction than that provided by current templates.
