MediaLibrary is a multi-platform free software that lets you catalog your media files ( CD-Rs, DVDs...)

Its main purpose is to reference your media files in a category tree with any comment. You can then easily find any file you are looking for.

MediaLibrary is Free Software available under the terms of the GNU/GPL running on Java.

Here are some key features of "Media Library":
Status Bar with Current Selection Management & Monitored Task Stacking
Catalog Load Tracing (options/trace menu)
Recent files list
Automatic backup & Warning if saving on an already existing different Catalog
Graphical file category change
Browsable help & documentation
Numerous switchable gui icon sets (through setting the property in the resources/medialib.prop file)
2 GUI loading & indexing refresh politics: continuous or on action end only (customizable in resources/medialib.prop by setting the medialib.gui.refresh property either to "OnModelEvent" or to "OnActionEndOnly"). The last one is 6 times faster.
XML format:
* Read & write catalogs in XML and gzip XML
Full ADC catalog 1.15b format compliance:
* Minus: media drive "free size" field
* Read & write (catalog, medias, dirs & files, categories, dates, comments, sizes...)
