Movies have become more byte-sized, with larger terabyte drives and fast Internet speeds for easy downloads. It is now common to have hundreds of movies on your desktop, but sorting through all these can be cumbersome. Fortunately, Movie Explorer paves the way for a saner movie archiving experience.
Once you run Movie Explorer on your PC, it will instantly crawl your documents for movie files and then find out its details from online movie databases like IMDB and Moviemeter. With the app running, it can automatically add new movies once the files are added. You can then sort your movies by title, year, director, genre, and more.
Movie Explorer also lets you add your own organization by creating new categories other than the usual attributes. This allows you to create your collection or playlist.
Perhaps the best feature for movie and computer geeks is the easy export to XML. This will allow you to transform your personal movie database into data you can share or use.
This app is free and pretty simple to use, especially for anyone who want to instantly see their movie collection without downloading media center apps like Boxxee, and Plex.
