DVDpedia is a movie cataloging application that retrieves all information about your movies from the Internet via keyword or UPC scan, so you have time for more important things like watching movies.

Accessing several international movie sites, including Doghouse, the program's own media server, DVDpedia lets you retrieve information for DVD, Blu-Ray and VHS. To search, enter keyword combinations - movie title, director, actor, studio, etc. - or scan the UPC and let DVDpedia do the rest.

Create smart collections and start a wish list for those movies you don't own yet and a borrowed collection for those you want back. View your entries as a standard list, browse only the covers or use the info view for a personalized look of DVDpedia. Share your collection with friends using the customizable HTML export templates and learn more about your own collection with the Statistics feature. DVDpedia comes with full Spotlight integration.

Ratings and Reviews

If I am wrong, I will apologize

Don’t use one

I wasted my money on this. Its great to have all this information about each item. However, it is useless unless you can find the item. I have found no means to input a location, numbering, or some other way lo locate the desired item. With several thousand items, that is a major concern, and really the only reason I purchased this app.I have recently migrated from windows to Apple OS and of course cannot use Ant Movie List, which I have used for a very long time. As yet I have been unable to import my files to any degree of satisfaction. If anyone has a solution, I am open to suggestions.

Update: My apology, I spoke a bit too soon. After receiving some advice from the developer, I have since managed to import my files from Ant Movie Catalog, clean up a few errors and complete a backup. After learning more about the app, I would certainly recommend it. I will say though that it can be a bit intimidating at first.

Thanks to the developer for the opportunity make amends for a bad review.

Developer Response

We'd love to help you get over any hurdles you might have encountered with DVDpedia. Just email us at our Bruji support mail and we'll be happy to answer any and all questions you might have.
To input a location - you mean you're looking for a field to enter the physical location of the movie in your house/on a shelf? If so, that'd be the field "Location". Or there's "Collection ID" which is where you can enter an ID number or letter for each entry. (Or, if you prefer, have the program assign an ID automatically for each new entry.)

I've been loving it for years!


Years ago I took a thorough look at all of the cataloging apps I could find. In the end I chose DVDpedia. I am still very happy with this program and it continues to surprise me (in a good way). Every time I think of something new I want to do with my data, I generally can find a way to do it with DVDpedia.
The really good, key features for me are the auto-incrementing CollectionID number and the fact that you can define custom fields with default values. You can also define a list of auto-fill values for all fields. In other words, you are not completely locked into the developers way of doing things. Also, some standard export options are provided so that your database doesn't get trapped in this program should it go away down the road. Unfortunately, the companion iOS app seems to have been abandoned. In spite of that, DVDpedia is a great app (and I rarely give glowing reviews.)
So far I have not seen any problems with the database conversion to version 5.

Ecellent app


I've been looking for a decent video catalog for a few years now. This one is a bit pricey (probably one of the main complaints about it). Other than that, it's a great app. It has a slew of import options that worked without issue for me, auto-update features to about 15-20 external sites like The TVdB, The Movie Db, IMDB, etc.

The views are very 'iTunes like', with an easy search feature and a customizable toolbar. Also has 'loan' options to track discs you loan out, and options to generate emails to those folks automatically or manualy reminding them of the loan.

From a support perspective, teh Buji folks are very responsive. They answer questions quickly and tend to address bugs quickly.

I do wisjh it would incorporate storage for the library in your cloud drive. It’s not very multi-computer friendly. Although it has a corresponding mobile app, you must sync the app with the primary mac while on the same wifi network. Sync options are not available at any other time. You also can’t manage your library from multiple computers which is a drawback.

Overall a great app. If you are looking for a video disc library software, this is the one that should fit your basic needs.

For the high price, and the lacking cloud features, I gave it a 4 out of 5.
