    Smile Can Anyone Suggest a Good Video File Manager?
    Hey Everyone,
    I'm importing all of my old home movie tapes to a hard drive. I'd like a good program to organize and sort these once they are all imported. Can anyone suggest a good program to do this?

    I use Plex for my movies but these are personal home movie files. I feel like using that would be going overboard. Just looking for something simple and reliable. I googled this question and came across Miro. It looks ok but I feel like there is something better out there. Features like categorizing groups of files, writing content descriptions, and sharing between computers on the network would be a major plus. A free program would be ideal but I'm willing to pay for one that will work the best.

    Thank you in advance for any suggestions and advice!

    Any reason why iTunes won't meet your needs?

    Please verify and include the exact model/year of your Mac and OS X version number (available from "About This Mac", then "More Info" on the Apple menu).

    I thought about just using iTunes but I'd like to see if there is a program built more exclusively towards what I'm thinking. Like a program better suited for grouping videos into main categories and expanding from there. Also writing large descriptions and whatnot.

    except expanding i think you can do all with iTunes - no problem writing large descriptions.

    Sounds like what you want is a DAM -- a digital asset manager, and not too complicated, and oriented around video files.

    Here's two to look at:

    I have no first-hand experience with either one.

    I stick with iTunes. It does everything I need and has the advantage that it is easy to copy any video to iPhone or iPad plus they all show up on the TV with my AppleTV2. Apart from that I can't see the point in using more programs than I need.

    I came across this iPhoto-like video manager named Cosmos and was wondering if anyone had any first-hand experience with it.
