Question How do you keep track of your DVD/Blu-Ray Collection

Hi Folks,

How do you keep track of your DVD/Blu-Ray Collection?

Only have 150 or so titles, but don't have them on display as such, the majority is in the loft. Due to this, the titles are rarely watched ...

Looking for a website that's the equivalent of Discogs, for for films.

Needs to have a website, export, an App, and hopefully some way to scan the barcode to add the title.

Many thanks

Please move to the correct forum if there is a better one for this question to reside?

Dvd Profiler used to be the thing, back in the day. Looks like they have an app nowadays.

Blu-ray.com has a nice collection feature, I've not used it extensively enough to know what you can do with it, though.

I still use dvd profiler. They have android and IOS apps. Not sure how scanning works.

As above, I use Blu-ray.com for Blu-rays, can use it for DVDs as well

Used to use DVD Profiler years ago but stopped using it when other users rejected legitimate updates.

I use Excel spreadsheets for all my stuff (Books and CDs too), with added macros and pivot tables

Many thanks to all that replied!

I have a few options to look at.

Will also have to add the purchased streaming films, it's so easy to forget what you have with so many different services

I don't have a massive amount, maybe 300-400, but I just know what I have (the same with CDs).

DVD profiler would be perfect for this.

Rip them, store them, stream them.

Using Kodi or some other media friendly GUI you get your full Bluray or DVD quality easily accessible from a HDD or NAS.

You get all your movies synopsis, search by title, actor etc.

Plex would be good for that also, as it downloads pictures/previews/synopsis from the net automatically. And it also converts on the fly when streaming. Your library would be accessible on internal and external networks too.

I have a Lifetime pass for Plex, it's great ... but ripping them all, naming, setting the seasons and episodes, investing in the extra HDD capacity, no I don't have time or the inclination, just want them catalogued

Nice suggestion mind

TBH, I have done this from memory for the last 20 years or so. Not ideal I know but I do have organisational OCD and this helps with remembering what I have and what I don't. I have only been wrong twice, and on one of those occasions I mislaid my BD of Avatar, could not find it right away and ordered another before realising my mistake.

But at 61+ I know that this is not a satisfactory method anymore and have to think of an alternative.

As has been said DVD profiler works well, in my case it's a must as my memory is quite bad at times (and the collection rather large), and these days I sync the PC programme with my tablet or check the online page for a portable list.

I think I've been using it since about 2002.

Yep, dvdprofiler for me too. The mobile app is invaluable when out shopping as I have an atrocious memory & far too many dvds

(Edit: Just noticed my dvdprofiler link is still in my sig, which will give you an idea of how it looks online - the desktop program is much better of course).
