CD-Index: My media cataloging solution

Added by 8 months ago

I have a huge media collection, that I created many years ago. Eventually, in some time I got need to find several files by their names. After unsuccessful checking tens of my CDs I realized, that it was too complicated to do that simple task as my media collection was just too big. In this way, I came to the conclusion, that I needed a media cataloging tool.

I tried many ready solutions, but none of them appeared to be good enough for me to use. The biggest problem with them was the search – it was just damn too slow. And, it was so slow becauses they used plain text files, e.g., in XML format, to store the file structure information. It looked like they loaded those big text files, parsed them and then made the search. And they did that for each media. So eventually, I realized, that I had to implement my own solution.
