Best Movie Collection Managers For Linux

Filed under
Software

If you are a movie buff you must own tons of movies, old and new. I own a lot of movies myself, some of them are on my computer and others are in my cupboard. While I love bragging about my huge collection of classics and blockbusters, one of the most tedious things I come across is the act of organizing. Call me lazy but organizing movies, especially if they’re stored on your computer, seems like a herculean task for me. Lots of people crave that iTunes-esque automatic sorting of movies wherein you have all the information about the movies you own. Too bad, we’re all FOSS fanboys here and as always we are not short of workarounds.

Personally, I love to have all my metadata intact be it music or photos. That’s why I prefer using the collection managers that come with media players like Amarok for fetching metadata. For movies, though, you don’t have many collection managers to boast of. On Linux, the choices are quite limited. There are barely any good movie collection managers on our favorite platform; however, some of them are quite good. Here’s a list of the best ones in the genre:

Distro Development: Rescatux and Bodhi

  • Rescatux 0.40 beta 9 released
    Many code in the grub side and in the windows registry side has been rewritten so that these new features could be rewritten. As a consequence it will be easier to maintain Rescapp. Finally the chntpw based options which modify the Windows registry now perform a backup of the Windows registry files in the unlikely case you want to undo some of the changes that Rescapp performs. I guess that in the future there will be a feature to be able to restore such backups from Rescapp itself, but, let’s focus on releasing an stable release. It’s been a while since the last one. UEFI feedback is still welcome. Specially if the Debian installation disks work for you but not the Rescatux ones.
  • Bodhi 4.0.0 Updates and July Donation Totals
    Late last month I posted a first alpha look at Bodhi 4.0.0. Work since then has been coming along slowly due to a few unpredictable issues and my own work schedule outside of Bodhi being hectic over the summer. Bodhi 4.0.0 will be happening, but likely not with a stable release until September. I am traveling again this weekend, but am hoping to get out a full alpha release with 32bit and non-PAE discs next week.
