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:

  • The Future of Marketing Technology Is Headed for an Open-Source Revolution
  • Edging Closer – ODS Sydney
    Despite the fact that OpenStack’s mission statement has not fundamentally changed since the inception of the project in 2010, we have found many different interpretations of the technology through the years. One of them was that OpenStack would be an all-inclusive anything-as-a-service, in a striking parallel to the many different definitions the “cloud” assumed at the time. At the OpenStack Developer Summit in Sydney, we found a project that is returning to its roots: scalable Infrastructure-as-a-Service. It turns out, that resonates well with its user base.

  • Short Delay with WordPress 4.9
    You may have heard WordPress 4.9 is out. While this seems a good improvement over 4.8, it has a new editor that uses codemirror.  So what’s the problem? Well, inside codemirror is jshint and this has that idiotic no evil license. I think this was added in by WordPress, not codemirror itself. So basically WordPress 4.9 has a file, or actually a tiny part of a file that is non-free.  I’ll now have to delay the update of WordPress to hack that piece out, which probably means removing the javascript linter. Not ideal but that’s the way things go.
