So I got a problem and I hope someone knows the answer. Basically I am looking for a DMS (document management system) for my music and movies. I have a huge amount of files, currently in folders but this doesn't work anymore. Wikipedia told me that the term DMS is used slightly different in German than in English so to clarify my point see the requirements below.
What I want to do is this:
- Store my music and videos on the filesystem
- Have a software to manage meta data and location of those files
- Search for tags, categories etc. that are related to my files
I have something like a software in mind, which does this management maybe using a database.
- I have neither Dropbox nor git or anything similar in mind. I need no version control and no synchronization. I just want to have a centralized solution do manage that data.
- I don't want a solution only focused on music or videos, I would like to find a solution to manage any kind of files.
I found this during my research, but I would prefer not to use a web-based solution, neither do I need a server. The software may be client software, although a server client structure would not be a problem.
Suggestions so far:
I also found this after I knew what exactly to look for. I don't have the time to test these systems, but there may be a good solution. Maybe someone following this has the possibility to test one or more and give some feedback here.
I will try to improve this question continuously while getting your feedback. If something remains unclear please ask.
Thanks in advance for any useful information and hints!
