Video organizer tools?

Post by nohitter151 » Mon Apr 30, 2007 7:03 pm

What kind of video organizers are available? I'm looking for something with Mediamonkey type organizational tools, but for video, and also is free. What do you guys use to organize video?

Don't laugh, but I use MediaMonkey to organize my video files. I have installed many video plugins to be able to scan them in the library. I can tag them like I do with music files. MM is not ideal to play videos, but to organize them it's great.

Can you use the auto organize feature on videos?

Yes, why not. If all required fields are there, it should work. I think that MM keeps tag info in the database, even if can't put it in the tags. But in that case, be careful to not rescan the files otherwise you might loose some info.

Can you please name the plugins you use ?

I dont use "many" video plugins anymore as sometime they conflict one with another. Video plug-in VID4WA v.2.6 is doing the job. You will find it on MediaMonkey main web page in the Add-ons/Input Plug-ins page, or you can download it directly from RC4WA.

I tried it with a fresh installation of MM 255, but I find only music-specific possibilities for tags/information.
Do I miss something for video-specific ones or do you just live with this ?

Oh you mean specific video tags? Like image size, quality and others?
Nop, can't do this with MM. The plugin will not add any specific field, as they are built-in the library.

:(
I just had some hope, as Lowlander replied
You can only add video support with WinAmp plugins and as mentioned elsewhere some support additional information.
and I can't find a thread, where these ones are named.
Seems I have to follow "moiss" on my search for a MM-like movie-database.

However, thanks for your replies...

Is there any way that I can make MM open all video files externally?

I tried using MM to organise my videos before but got annoyed with it cause I couldn't open them easily.

How would I use that to automatically open all video files externally?

Read the description of the script. It installs a toolbar button whereby you can click on a file, then on the button and open the file with another program. That's the closest you can get to opening video files with MM at this point in time.

I am also looking to organize my video's.
I have movies, documentaries, music video's, funny clips, religious sermons and more.
Some programs want you to organize your files only by the file description. (No I want to sort them with my audio files).
Some programs want you to organize movie video's only. (No, I have more then just movie videos on my system).
Some programs only lets you tag/edit/play some video extensions. (No, I want to play all video extensions)

At least these are some of the problems I am having.

I'm thinking of using multiple programs.
I can't seem to get any of them to do everything I want.
Here is the best I can find.

http://www.jaangle.com/ - The best for music Audio and Video. (problem: only supports some video types)
http://www.jrmediacenter.com/features.html - Good if all you want to do is look at them. (problem: Can't edit video tags)
http://www.jockersoft.com/jenius.php - Best all around one for sorting (problem: You can't sort videos with your audio by album name/tag)
http://www.cyberlink.com/products/power ... en_US.html - Never Tried (Don't look like you can tag edit)

Here is a couple more:

http://www.getsongbird.com/ - This one you can edit many video tags, funny thing is you the player don't support them. :lol:
http://www.bsplayer.org/ - This one is close, Can't edit the tags yet but they have the fields there and it plays most types of videos.
