Description:

Movida helps you organizing your movie collection, whatever media the movies are on (DVDs, MPEG-4 encoded files - like DivX or XviD movies and more).
You can search your movie collection using simple or complex queries and add custom tags for better management.

What movies starring Joe Joystick do I have? And where did I store them?
Nothing easier!
And who directed those movies? Maybe it's the same director as...
Well, just find it out with Movida!
And what about adding a tag to all your favourite movies or to your Joe Joystick movie collection?

Searching your movie collection has never been so simple and fast!

Send your collection to your friends and easily compare different movie collections!
So you can know what movies you're going to ask your friends next!
Movie collections are stored in a completely platform independent way, so you can watch them or edit them wherever you want.

And now, the most important thing: Movida is completely free!
Don't think it's just free to download, it comes without any charge!
Movida is open source software, this means you can get it for free, you can send it to your friends and, if you are a programmer, you can download the source code and maybe fix bugs or add other features, as long as you do respect the terms of the GNU General Public License version 2 or later.

Movida is cross-platform: it runs on noth Microsoft Windows XP and Linux operating systems.
Support and testing is only done on Microsoft Windows XP and Linux, but it may run on different versions of Microsoft Windows and it may be built successfully on Mac OS X.

It seems to me that your app is quite similar to Tellico. Can u explain me the difference? Is an import / export to Tellico planed? Is it also quite flexible with the Datafields or is it just for some special things like DVDs yet?

Hmm, was just to say about the same thing.

There is much you can learn from Tellico, or, better yet, tune tellico to what you want to accomplish and the world will be a better place.

Sorry guys, but Tellico is a quite different project.
I know Tellico very well and it's a really good piece of software, but Movida is different.
The OSDaB Project (this is where Movida was born) should have been something similar to Tellico, but then I saw Tellico and similar software and I changed my mind. Here are some reasons and differences from Tellico:

1) Movida is cross-platform (*nix, Win32 and possibly MacOSX), Tellico is for KDE
2) Tellico is a general purpose cataloguer. Movida is an ad-hoc movie cataloguing software. This means it has an ad-hoc GUI (the Tellico dialogs are not so bad, though) and ad-hoc features (or planned features, as I have few time to work on it), like import/export to or from online and offline resources (tellico is not excluded!).
3) The world would be a better place if children wouldn't be starving while a bunch of politicians and CEOs are taking a bath in their football-sized swimming pool filled with hypocrisy and demagogy.
4) I have no need for other cataloguers but for a _good_ movie manager ;) I know, this is a pretty selfish reason ;)
5) Thanks for your comments, I really appreciate ;)
6) A tighter KDE integration is planned but it's really on the lower end of my TODO list.

sure, it's already planned :)
i will start working on applications for managing cd and book collections as soon as development of movida is in a more advanced state. i din't have lots of free time this last two months, so it will take some more time (i hope movida will be almost completed for the last quarter of this year).
