There used to be a separate program that let you do that and with a much bigger database, but it was really cumbersome to use so I just use http://www.filmaf.com/ instead. It's missing a lot of international releases so I just add the closest equivalent.

DVD profiler is what I use and it works great. Also tracks BDs and you can upload it to their website only if you pay for the program.

I use 3 spreadsheets for keeping track of my movies. One spreadsheet is for laserdiscs. It is where I track the LD names, condition, surround sound and format (widescreen, CAV, CLV. or letter box) of my LD's. The second spreadsheet is for tracking my CED's. I record on it the titles, any with more than 1 disc, whether the disc is in stereo, condition (new or used) and rarity. The last spreadsheet lists all the movie titles and what format(s) (VHS, CED, HD-DVD, VCD, DVD, BD, UHD or LD) the movie is recorded on. This last spreadsheet is where I go when I find a movie I might want to buy. Occasionally, I print out the 3 spreadsheets so I have a hard copy to refer to.

Currently, I am at 860 movies recorded on 8 different formats.

It turns out you can track DVDs on Blu-ray.com, so I will be tracking from there.

Laserdiscs today play new and LD players function perfectly ! ...Sony garbage gear (U-matic,beta sp,ed beta) is dead....no reliability,

no parts,no clean playback, 100% broken units on ebay...Junk ! .....Laserdisc format is better than Betacam sp and S-VHS machines

are way better than ED Betas.....finally Sony on his Video8 and Hi8 adopted the JVC tape load system...

No need to be such a negative nanny about it. There's working gear out there, you just need to look for it - outside of ebay if necessary.

But yeah, U-Matic would be a rather pointless thing to collect since it never had any commercial releases, so the only content you will find is industrial, professional or amateur/hobbyist content.

In the other hand, you could probably make some money converting other people's tapes to another, more modern format.

i visited some Broadcast stores out off ebay, no one sell brand new Betacam sp decks, only used with limited warranty ( the limited warranty is cause they know they were equipments with a build quality intended to intensive use along with daily Betacam service technicians on tv stations; i remember their orange jackets with Betacam logo on)

yes my friend, Betacam magnetos are the first ones to die forever, i lost my money on a last attempt but no more...just say this for info purposes; S-VHS not as good but still alive and kicking
