Its main assets are the automatic import function from IMDB, the search function and the seen/unseen marking option.

As you explore this software tool, you will find even more options that allow you to manage your movies efficiently.

EMDB works no matter what kind of movies you have on your computer (Bluray, DVD, HD DVD, VCD, SVCD etc.).

The intuitive interface allows a variety of operations: importing data from IMDB, searching, loan tracker, manually inserting information about the movie and so on.

Add your own comments and information to the movies, such as title, version, year, country, color, plot outline, cast, genre, your own rating and many others.

Technical information can be added as well, such as aspect, codec, source, resolution etc.

The information you have added can be removed with just one click.

The information gathered in EMDB can be exported as plain text, HTML or Excel. Moreover, you can use search filters to find certain films you are interested in using a variety of criteria.

This application will seem even more meticulous when you find out it can display statistics about the movies in the database and your activity.

EMDB is being constantly improved with each new release, and the latest updates refer to the user interface, to adding some new languages and to some HTML export and IMDB import issues.

EMDB is an excellent choice if you are passionate about movies and like to keep track of what you’ve seen and of your wishlist and to have at hand extensive information about movies all the time.

The application has received the appreciation of many users due to its impeccable functioning and diverse features which help you catalogue your films like no other tool.

- Translations: Updated the Arabic, Czech, French, German, Simplified Chinese, Slovenian, Traditional Chinese and Dutch translations.

EMDB (Eric's Movie Database) v.49

EMDB is a good freeware program for cataloging your movies (DVD'S,VHS etc). The interface is clean and well layed out and the controls are simple to use.

It can import movie information and cover thumbnails from IMDB (Internet Movie Database) and includes options for some user added info. While the program was developed for XP, it seems to be fairly compatable with Windows Vista.

If your looking for a simple method to keep track of your movie's this works just fine.It will be interesting to see how this program will develop over time.

Easy to use, Able to print the database list, exports the list as text or a comma seperated file, Able to generate a html page of your database, Fair sorting and search function,Author listens to bug reports/suggestions and is quick to update.

No instruction sheet, while the controls are simple and can be quickly figured out, some option's might not be as obvious so some users. Also a list of what files are installed and where they should be located would be nice.

Some minor bugs/glitches mostly with importing & exporting and with where files are stored, this maybe do to some compatablity problem with Vista. The author seem's so be clearing those up quickly as they are reported.
