v4.5.5: Further improvements to the Add Movies screen

November 22nd, 2017

In today’s update for the CLZ Movies app, we have made further tweaks to the Add screen, to make it clearer than previous versions:

  • Add from CLZ Core:
    • Faster movie title search.
    • Color high-lighting: Movies already ‘on wish list’ now have an orange title, movies already “in collection” show up with a blue title.
    • Slightly smaller font for the movie title, so that longer titles fit better.
    • Search as you type now respects tv-series only/adult filters.

Fixes in this update:

  • After changing the sort order the list could sometimes scroll to a random position.
  • Small CLZ Cloud sync tweaks.
  • After restarting the app an empty details template could sometimes show.
  • After restarting the app it would sometimes repeatedly scroll to the last added movie.
  • After manually typing a barcode in the add by barcode screen you weren’t able to search another one.

In today’s update for the CLZ Movies app, we have made further tweaks to the Add screen, to make it clearer and (hopefully) more stable than previous versions:

  • Slightly smaller font for the movie title, so that longer titles fit better.
  • Color high-lighting: Movies already ‘on wish list’ now have an orange title, movies already “in collection” show up with a blue title.
  • Improved scroll behaviour.

Fixes in this update:

  • Full screen cover scroller on iPhone/iPod devices was not properly updating its title bar

    v17.2.2: Fixed a problem with formats for box sets and more

    October 5th, 2017


    • Main Screen Details View: when there’s no order in box set movies they will be listed sorted on release year.

      • Movies were not removed from the search queue after linking them.

    v17.2: Automatically add multi-movie box-sets

    October 4th, 2017

    After many months of work from our content managers, our Core online movie database has now been enhanced with movie list information for thousands of multi-movie box sets.

    Today, Movie Collector 17.2 for Windows is the first to use this new Core data:
    Just use the enhanced Add from Core screen to find a box set, either by title or by barcode, and our Core “knows” which movies are in the box.

    See it in action:

    Find and add box sets by barcode

    Scan a box-set barcode and Core will show you which movies it contains. Click Add Box Set at the bottom right and all contained movies will be added to your database, automatically linked by a box set entry.

    Find and add box sets by title

    Alternatively, use the By Title tab and enable the new Box Set search to find box sets by their title.

    Note: the new Movies, TV Series and Box Sets checkboxes now let you search each of these three Core section separately OR combined.
    AND: The check boxes now also operate on the Search-As-You-Type suggestions, for even quicker searching and adding!

    New design of box set panel in templates, with movie list!

    A nice re-designed box set panel at the top of the movie details for each of the contained movies. Now showing the list of the contained movies, in the correct order, AND with clickable links to go straight to the other movies in the set!

    Report unrecognized box set barcodes

    Our Core online database now recognizes thousands of box sets by barcode, but of course, it is possible that you own one that is not recognized.

    In that case, the Unrecognized Barcode screen will popup, which now features a special tab for Box Sets. This new Box Set tab will let you select which movies are in the box, so that you can add it anyway.

    At the same time, the barcode and the movie list are sent to Core, to complete our database and to make sure that the next user who scans this barcode WILL automatically get the full info 🙂

    Movie Connect

    v17.0.5: Now compatible with macOS 10.13 “High Sierra”

    September 21st, 2017

    Next week, Apple will release the new macOS 10.13 “High Sierra”.
    If you are planning to update your Mac to this new OS, then we strongly recommend to update your Movie Collector software to today’s version 17.0.5!

    Movie Collector problems on High Sierra:
    We have been testing our software on beta versions of High Sierra for quite a while, to make sure we were ready for it’s release. We found that most of the software seems to be working as normal.

    Unfortunately, we found a big problem in the Preferences screen, it does not open at all anymore, making it impossible to make any changes to program settings.

    Luckily, our Mac developer Ronald was able to fix the Preferences screen to make it work on the new macOS. A fix was released today, in version 17.0.5.


    • Preferences screen didn’t load properly on macOS 10.13 “High Sierra”.
    • Upload Cover to CLZ Core: Images were not always uploaded properly even if they were within the 500KB file size limit.
    • Main Screen: Quick Search: Occasional crashes in the quick search when using the “Search-as-you-type” suggestions.
    • Sync with CLZ Cloud: Sometimes crashed during the upload of covers.

    Improved search results, plus Search-As-You-Type suggestions

    September 7th, 2017

    A nice upgrade for the search feature today, in both Movie Connect and the free CLZ Cloud viewer for movie collections!

    We have completely replaced the search engine, making the searches much faster and giving you better, more focussed, less “fuzzy” search results.

    On top of that, we have now added our popular “Search-As-You-Type” mechanism to the search box for quick finding and selecting a particular movie in your database:

    • In the Quick Search box, just start typing the first few letters of the title you are looking for.
    • While typing, a drop-down list will appear, showing the first five matching movies, with small cover images.
      (for most movies, it only takes 2 or 3 letters before it shows up.)
    • Once you see the one you were looking for, use the up/down keys to select it, then hit Enter.
    • This will instantly take you the movie details page for that movie.

    See the Search-As-You-Type system in action:

    • Add Movies from CLZ Core: the 4 “Add by” tabs now have icons.


    • Add/Link Movie files: Link to Existing Movie:
      • Double clicking the column header in the movie selection screen would act as double clicking a movie and close the screen.
      • It wasn’t possible to resize the columns in the movie selection screen.
    • Edit Movie: Links tab: When editing a local link, the “previous” button didn’t work.
    • After adding a movie where a pick list item (such as an actor) was updated with new information, not all movies using that same actor were marked as “dirty” for syncing with CLZ Cloud.
    • Adding a movie could cause a cast member’s image URL to be overwritten even when update setting “cast/crew images” was “Leave as is” or “Update empty fields only”.
