Any Software to Sort my AVI films & TV

    I am after a piece of software that does some/all this software and can be had free:

    Scan HDD for Movies
    Browse the Movies on the HDD
    View description of the films from IMDB
    Browse the movies by category
    Allow a film to exist in multiple categories e.g. fantasy, adventure

    Preferably doing this automatically based on IMDB data and possibly (though not at all needed) launch able from an external HDD

    I assume there is nothing to do all this but thought someone may know



    I have no idea but a quick google came up with this…el/

    There is a 14 day trial so you can test it out.





    I've had a good look for software like this and it is a mixture of doesn't exist and far too fiddly to be any good.
    The best alternative I've found is a fantastic piece of software called EMDB. you do need to type in the movie titles but it can then auto search imdb for all the details, including the genres and ratings. Can also link to the file so you can open it.
    Its what I use and I think its awesome!

    XBMC without a doubt


    I use XBMC for media player but Ember Media Manager for file info and images etc.

    It does play almost everything but it wont do any of the things in the op will it.

    Yes XBMC. brilliant piece of kit. gets you all the album artwork as well, and can browse your films by actor, genre, whatever you like.
