  1. Hello guys!!!

    I have around 500 backed up movies from my personal dvd collection inside my pc.

    Does anyone knows a software that " emulate" or actually act as a video movie server in my pc???

    What I am thinkink of is something like a software that allows me to see all the movies (maybe separated by categories...) I have stored, choose one of them , and load it to watch it.

    Thanxs in advance

    You don't say whether you are on a MAC or PC

    if you're on MACINTOSH, the newest APPLE COMPUTERS are USING SMART FOLDERS in OS X that will allow a FOLDER placed on the desktop to automatically contain any movie you ever make on the machine (or transfer to it) by being a "SELF - UPDATING" folder.

    also new APPLE's have a sort of HOME THEATRE organizer built into OS X 4.5 (or such)
    This "FRONT ROW" application organizes any video put in a special folder called "MOVIES" that has already existed in the MAC USERS FOLDER in OS X.
    Using a REMOTE supplied with the computer, you can play all your movies without a MOUSE (using the remote)

    how have you backed up them? avi, dvd-video folders,iso files?

    media center tools can automatically categories files on your for example Media Portal, SageTV
