A great Video Cataloguer, let down only for the lack of documentation and online support. Have more than 400 DVDs and tried both the apps in this category, stayed with PVD. Nimble and quick, doesn´t have all the importers that AMC has, but makes finding blanks and editing a breeze. Recomended.

Una base de datos para películas muy buena, sobre todo, la posibilidad de importar los datos y carátulas de páginas web.
- Falta solamente la traducción al español.
Gracias, thank you.
Congratulations !!!

Apparently development on this has ended, which is a shame. You can still find it on Softpedia:

Hugh0202 on 2013-05-07 20:27

This software expects each book to be added individually, or from an imported table. It cannot walk a tree of your existing library and build its database from that.
This makes it pretty much useless for anyone with a sizable library already.
