    Hey, just wanted to get an idea out there.

    Do you guys think it would be a good idea to have a sort of DVD/CD/Book collection manager. Sort of a database with set fields such as

    Name:
    Main Actors:
    Rating:
    etc.

    I have one on my computer, and I really like it, since not all of my DVDs and CDs are in one place.

    Anybody willing to make this happen

    Sorry for the ancient bump, but I was thinking about this today and figured I'd just bring this thread back up since there are a bunch more dev teams and coders now than when I last posted this.

    Other thoughts:

    It would also be cool to have a jacket/cover field.

    Forgive me for not understanding completely, but do you mean a seachable database, with information on DVD's/CD's, and the like, or what exactly?
    A giant list of every media available that can be played on the ipot?

    And sorry about this one, but I have to say it, books have actors?

    No, I mean a database where you can put in the books/CDs/DVDs/Video games that you own, your ratings, and that sort of information.

    No, books don't have actors, when I mentioned actors I was referring to DVDs.

    Ohh I see now, but I still think that it would be better if you could sync with the internet, and find other people's ratings, and favorites. Plus I don't have enough DVD's or CD's to make a database useful for me.

    To give an idea of what I'm thinking of, something similar to this: http://www.delicious-monster.com/ (not necessarily the interface, but the features)

    EDIT: I just noticed that it has an export to iPhone option. Unfortunately, I'm on Windows.

    What is the program you use on Windows?

    I use MediaMan, which is more or less a clone of the program I linked to above. It has an export to .html function, but it doesn't play too nice with the iPod.

    I would like this application to, what would also be amazing if you there was a play option that worked with the Music Player, Books Reader, Video Player, so if you had the content on your iPod Touch or iPhone you could play it directly from the content manager, almost acting as a new library.

    That would be cool too, but I was thinking of this, for example, in the way that I have a ton of DVDs not on my iPod, and I'd like to be able to have a "mobile" catalog of them.
