Or... use them both, as perfect companions!
Both CLZ Movies and Movie Connect can be used on their own, as a stand-alone solution. But these tools really come to live when used together, as they are great companions.
While away from your computer use CLZ Movies on your phone, then use Movie Connect at home, to work on your database on a big screen, with a real keyboard.
Of course, you can sync your database between them through our CLZ Cloud solution.
Also still available: Movie Collector for Windows
Movie Collector is our legacy desktop software. Old-skool software that you install on your own computer, with your data stored locally.
Using Movie Collector is only recommended for advanced Windows users, who know how to install/update software, manage folder and file permissions, configure firewall/security software, make their own backups, etc...
Latest software updates
I will keep recommending your software to all of my friends and family. I wish you could see how impressed people are when I demo the programs for them.
Reviews from customers
Suffice to say that I have now gone down the same route with my cds - and CLZ Music. Thank you for helping me free up several shelf units and endless boxes...
With this app it scans the barcode and instantly files the movies alphabetically with all the stats and actors/actresses. We have not loaded our complete collection but we scanned 350 movies and had them sorted alphabetically and back on the shelves in 25 minutes scanning took about 6 minutes.
This app is one of a few apps I have that actually does what it says it can do and has exceeded my expectations.
I transferred the files from the old computer to the new computer via my home network as both computers are wired via ethernet. It could not have been easier. No copying files from the old to a USB or portable hard drive.
Install worked flawlessly except for cover pictures but the maintenance tool fixed all issues.
Congratulations for making the process so easy.
But I happened upon the New Update File Links "wizard" and finished it in both DBs in under 15 minutes combined. I have a 1TB SSD for c drive in this one (really FAST). I would not have ever finished the manual update of cover locations.
Another very useful feature.
Now I have over 700 and decided to check out what you have done with the software. To my surprise, version 7 introduced the scan and add feature, this feature has saved me countless hours of adding movies to my database. I added all 713 movies in a matter of a couple hours rather than days or weeks. The thing that took me the longest this time was just making sure the search grabbed the correct movie and even that was quick and painless.
Another thing I would like to add is being a previous customer, this is the first time I purchased the pro version and I can say that I will not be going back to the standard version as the integration with Windows Media Center is beautiful. I use a Media PC on my home theater system and have actually never used Windows Media Center, though now that I have seen first hand how well it can work when there is data for each movie I will now be using it on a regular basis.
Thank you so much for adding the scan and add feature, I can open up movie collector again and have all the movie covers and details and now I don't have to scroll through a boring folder with all my movie files. My friends also appreciate that there are details for each movie again, it is quite hard to pick something to watch when you just have a folder filled with over 700 movies and no details on them.
I have currently approx 1,250 movies in my collection (with more to add) and having access to the collection via the Clz iPhone app is fantastic!
As a workaround I had been printing my Collection to a pdf list and then loading that on my iPhone via a "files" app, but having the Clz app is the only way to go, it's a must have for any collector!!
On the strength of you comp upgrade I have also just purchased Music Collector Pro. It will be my next project after I get my Movie Collection fully up to-date.
I then wrote a friend asking if they knew of a good program for keeping track of my DVD Movies, and they directed me to your site and I d/loaded Movie Colllector. I entered in a couple of titles and was amazed as to the ease of use, and the thoroughness of the Movie information that was included automatically. It even imported the information from the other program. I bought your program immediately.
I buy the DVD Movies and make copies so I can watch the copies and keep the originals in pristine condition. I store the DVD's in several locations. Those I loved and I want to watch over and over. Those I'd like to see again sometime. Those I have not seen, and those I would not want to watch again, but I'm too cheap to throw them out. Your program makes it so easy to keep track of the movies and their locations. What a gem of a program you and your team have created. It is also great to have help files that covers everything and you don't have to guess what is being said. But best of all I like to install a program and just start using it without jumping through hoops.
Your program is intuitive and easy to use with a shallow learning curve. Thank you for this, and for keeping your program so affordable.
For years now I've been laboriously cataloguing my DVDs (current count about 580) using Microsoft Access, for insurance purposes if nothing else.
Your software has turned what had become a chore into an obsession! It's just such a comprehensive and powerful tool, and the end result is just so damn sexy! Being able to export to the web with a click of the mouse is just fantastic, and makes the database so much more secure and accessible.
The program is so well designed that I've barely even glanced at the help files - everything is just so easy to work out. How you guys read my mental wishlist I don't know, but please keep up the great work!
