Best Free DVD Collection Software



I have been collecting DVDs for many years, and I now have a wall full of them. The first time I bought a DVD that I had already bought, it became obvious to me that I needed to organize my collection better. So I thought about what I needed in a software package. My needs were relatively simple. The software should have the following characteristics:

  • free
  • user-friendly interface
  • easy input
  • support for free online information
  • filtering, statistics and reports
