Movies by CraigWorks Description
Movies by CraigWorks is a straightforward and useful piece of software meant to offer you an interesting mix between a movie collection organizer and a movie player application.
Not your run-of-the-mill movie organizer
Truth be told, Movies by CraigWorks is not like most organizers, as it cannot be considered a standalone application.
Instead, it uses a web server to help you organize your movie collection and one of the most popular video players out there to display the media, therefore you could name it a partly-web-based app if you want.
Easy installation, provided all requirements are already installed
The installation process is quite straightforward, assuming you already have both Java Runtime and VLC media player installed on your computer, and you can quickly start using this app to organize your movie collections.
On the downside, while other apps of this sort automatically install all the required third-party software, in the case of Movies by CraigWorks, you need to take a few minutes of your time and manually install them.
Subsequent to its installation, you can start using this app with the help of your default web browser to access the following URL: http://localhost/CraigWorks/. The app’s web-based interface is quite simple and intuitive which makes the app accessible even for inexperienced PC users.
Organize, play and add movie information in seconds
Creating new entries is also a very straightforward and stress-free process, as you need to click the ‘Add Movie’ option from the dedicated menu within its interface.
From here onwards, you only have to type the title of your movie and click the ‘Import’ button. The app automatically searches all its online resources and, depending on your Internet connection’s speed, takes more or less time to display a complete detailed list.
You can organize your collection or create custom lists of movies, stream videos to other external mobile devices and add parenting filters for PG-13 or R rated movies. Also, thanks to the integrated VLC media player, you can enjoy almost any type of media file within the app.
Surprisingly capable and efficient movie organizer
All in all, Movies by CraigWorks is a really interesting take on what a comprehensive application for organizing movies should or could be.
Despite the fact that it is highly dependent on third-party software, Movies by CraigWorks might prove very handy for certain users who want everything packed in a single interface.
