Recommended maintenance update for Movie Collector 9

March 19th, 2013


A small, but recommended, maintenance update of Movie Collector 9 for Windows has just been released.

Fixed:

  • Update Automatically: sometimes actor image links would disappear
  • Main Screen: sorting on IMDB rating was very slow
  • Quick Search: cast and crew names weren’t always searched correctly depending on the “Show Names as Last Name, First Name” option
  • Edit Lists: ID column was never showing values
  • Templates: movie poster or backdrop weren’t showing when movie had no links.

To update, just use Help > Check for Updates in your current version of Movie Collector.

Mac users, good news!

A new major version of Movie Collector for Mac, version NINE, is coming soon!

Yesterday we have revealed the first v9 feature to the members of our MOVIE9MAC Preview Club.
It is up on our Preview Page now, with screenshots.

Game Collector review

January 11th, 2013


Torontothumbs.com already reviewed Movie Collector and now also Game Collector.

“I have been using Collectorz.com’s Movie Collector to keep track of my movie library for years. Versatile and quite user-friendly, Movie Collector takes a lot of guesswork out of tracking my Blu-rays and DVDs, and even has a Loan function to keep tabs on movies that people have borrowed. Collectorz.com recently sent us their Game Collector program to evaluate. While there are other applications available to keep your videogame library in order, none of them are as complete as Game Collector.”

Complete review can be found here.
