Are you guys aware of the best and most efficient DVD Cataloging Software that utilizes IAFD info? I've tried Movienizer but it seems like trying to input my DVD collection and populate it with detailed information will be quite a chore. I've likewise tried Personal Video Database and All My Movies neither of which appear to be the answer.
I think the optimal solution would be a DVD cataloging software specifically designed for adult movies (the ones I mentioned are all purpose with adult movies included among all other genres). If you are aware of such a software package, I'd love to know about it.
Additionally, any chance that UPCs will be added to the IAFD or is it too late to back fill the large population of records?
Thanks again.

I will draw Jeff's attention to your questions. If anybody can answer them, it's him.

Our vendors give UPC info, so it won't be impossible for us to link those title we have vendor info to provide UPC info -- the biggest problem being the UPC info usually SUCKS from the distributor. It's not unheard of for many products to share a single UPC code, so it's usefulness is suspect.
(Does it defeat the purpose of UPC codes? Certainly. Porners don't seem to care.)
Anyway, one of these days we'll add it.
To answer your first question -- we don't support any database program using our data past our own website.
That said, we're aware of one that does scrape our site and try to make some use of it, and we (so far) haven't done anything to discourage it. We did try to reach out to the developer to work on an API, but they weren't interested.

Thanks for the reply. The software you referenced actually looks pretty slick...too bad a Windows version is not available. From what I could tell without actually running it, that particular DVD cataloging package is head and shoulders above the 10 to 15 organizers I looked at....at least your data is being packaged in a nice home!!
Is there any chance CSV files of titles and actress filmographies could be exported and made available to the public for import into any old DVD cataloging software? I'm afraid my adult DVD collection is close to numbering around 1,000 so any efficiencies compared to keying the info I can pick up by using someone's existing data would be much appreciated!!
Incidentally, I've been involved in some retail manufacturing ventures and those damn UPC's are expensive!! I think it's something like $5k to $10k up front for a pretty big block of numbers that would exceed what most studios publish in a year so I'm certain the redundant UPC you've scene is another effort to keep production costs down.

Just my personal opinion (coming from a guy who has his own personal database(s) on porn as well -- in the 6000+ range).
I can understand your wish to have easy access to data to import into your private database, but I must say it also grates on me a bit. The IAFD staff has been working on entering the data for free, day in day out. You can consult the data for free as well. I have no problem with that at all. But I have to draw the line at giving away the data itself to use in whatever capacity for free. I have worked too many hours on the database to allow that. Really, this is the line where I have to demand that I am being paid for all the data entering I have done so far.
No harm in asking and no offense intended. And if Jeff decides it is a go, that's the final word on this anyway. Just letting you know how I feel about this.
p.s. Also I have been thinking about the following. I am sure your intentions are pure and your motives are honest, but I have had bad experiences with several guys who tried to charm me to give them access to my private database for free. Only to find out some months later that these guys have started their own on-line porn(star) databases. Data on IAFD has been copied and 'borrowed' for use on so many platforms without any kind of mention of IAFD, that I really don't think it's a good idea to give even easier access to the data than we do now.

I have also seen several web sites (russian, french and such) where they have basically copied word for word EGAFD's performers filmographies (as well as IAFD and IMDB). Other than hiring a bunch of lawyers and spending all kinds of money to have them desist, it's utterly useless. Anybody with any knowledge of porn/mainstream filmographies and the basic databases like IMDB, IAFD, EGAFD, EBI know the REAL source of those "copy/paste" filmographies. I do not know why those sites do that, rather just link to them or acknowledge where the information comes from (after all that's what these databases really ask for---to be CREDITED).
I have also seen Adam Film World's porn star bios on a number of other web sites, but I do not know whether they have licensed out that information to those sites or whether it's just neing unauthorized.

Mr. Burns, I can tell this must be a sensitive topic since with all due respect, you jumped to the conclusion that I was asking for it free. What I actually asked is if it could be "made available" to the public. Believe me, when I pay $40+ for a disc (and usually around $300 is my total spend every time I visit a shop), I would happily pay the $30 to $40 these DVD catalog software packages sell for. Moreover, I've invested a great deal of time searching and testing software to see what it can pull down as far as adult info goes (and did find one company that's decent actually) but the 20+ hours I spent doing my research could have been spent much more enjoyably watching porn or helping a girl pay some college debt.
I did say CSV because that would be the quickest way for me to get organized but I'd be happy to defer my project of straightening up my porn filled office if you told me there was a cataloging product in your pipe line that was in development. Remember, even if you did hand out a spreadsheet with the data I'd have to buy the software from somebody else to input the data so I'd be out the $30 anyway. Obviously I'd much rather give my money to you then some other company since we share a common interest in adult films!!
Still, having the data would only be partially satisfying. I'm sure you're familiar with Videobox.com and if you've ever been on the site, you've noticed their recommended video feature which is based on a member's viewing trends. I think that's a great idea and when I first started looking for some cataloging software, I had this end in mind - that is, I would be able to sync up my database with the vendor to get info updates and at the same time share with them my viewing preferences which would allow them to send me DVD suggestions that are right up my alley.
You know as well as anybody how much material is out there and while I enjoy visiting adult stores and spending an hour or two looking through the titles, I would certainly take advantage of a convenient email from one of the big-boy DVD sites saying here are 5 discs that you don't have but we bet you'd like. Right now, I'm on a huge Jaelyn Fox kick and don't leave an adult store without her and there's no way I would resist ordering more of her if it was thrown my way so conveniently.
My next step is to contact some of the online DVD companies to see if they have anything in development or plan to do so because right now, the girl-on-girl spam I get from Gamelink is useless to me. Send me an email about an 18 year old asshole getting mauled by a huge black dick or a new release that features a lot of girls eating man ass!! That's what I wanna hear about but no one knows it and that's the problem that needs solving.

LegalizeHooks did you ever find a decent software out there? I'm in the midst of locating one right now. I had been using an open source software called , it worked for both Windows and Linux, it fetched information from AdultDVDEmpire, AdultFilmDatabase, and Xonair. Unfortunately over the past year the sites have changed and the plugins that once worked are outdated, I'd write the plugin myself if I was familiar with the perl languag, however, I'm not.
It'd be really good to know if you came around with a decent software, or maybe someone here on ADT is familiar with Perl and would like to contribute to the development of the plugin for GCStar?
Cheers!

Hello,
Just to let you know my software will let you cataloging your DVD.
There is a special section for Adult Movies.
This section will take information from several Database :
IAFD of course for cast, artist credits, buy link etc.. but also Adult Dvd Empire, SugarVod, CdUniverse, Orgazmik, HotMovies, AdultBluRayHDDvd, The Movie DB, Dorcel Shop, Amazon and Bing :)
So you will get all your movies filled with information in about 10 seconds.
With myCollections you will also be able to catalog your apps, books, movies, games, music and Tvshow
And of course it's completely free without ads, just take care of the installer.
Do not hesitate to contact us for improvement or bug fixing.
/>Hope this help

I use GCStar too , on Linux Ubuntu , but I have to put the data in it myself, it seem unable to get data from any adult site , nor I can find any plugin for the purpose, Tried with Tellico too but I prefer GCStar
The process is very slow especially for the covers Sometimes I have to scan them myself

This is an old thread, BUT
I found the thread searching on Google for "DVD catalog software" xxx
I have enough DVDs now that I really need to keep track of what I have so I don't buy something or rent something I already have or have seen. I tried several DVD catalog softwares: some free, some with free trials. I don't mind paying if it does what I need. But nothing works well for porn. UNTIL I saw this message!
If you are trying to catalog your porn, install this free program. I'll repeat the link here so you don't have to hunt it:
URL=/>Description: CodePlex page info about myCollections free software
Click the Download link and install it. It's a very small installation file and there were no problems for me (Windows 10).
When you want to add an adult (porn) movie, either click the icon with the X in it or select "Action, Add, XXX." Don't click to add a movie because that doesn't link to the places you'll want. When you select to add XXX, you should type in the title and then at the bottom of the screen click on Web Update and select one of the drop-down choices. If the first one doesn't get it, try another. Choices will be familiar: AdultDVDEmpire, CDUniverse and many more. You don't have to stop at one! You can add to the amount of info you get by searching two or three of the sources. You'll get a cover image, Studio name, description, . . . .
Hell! Enough of my ranting. Just try it.
Regards and many thanks to myCollections --- this is his (?) only post here! It was a good one!!!
