Calibre-like for video?

Anyone know of a Calibre-like program that will maintain a video library? Preferably one that scrapes IMDB or something similar?

not quite the same as calibre, it doesn't store the video files themselves, only keeps a database of what you have. in each record you can specify the location.

"Plex" of plexapp.com comes to mind. It at least will scrape metadata and allow you to assign meta-data. Otherwise, there is (shudder) iTunes.

I must admit, having Calibre handle videos would be a cool "next step," as many of us upgrade our eReaders to Tablets!

I ended up going with XBMC. It doesn't organize files but does scrape for metadata and has a decent search function.

I use iTunes for both music and video. Free, works well, and has good search and organisational capabilities.
