Version 23.1.1
  • Release Date: Nov 25, 2022
  • In this update we’re introducing a new setting to display YouTube trailers in the details panel. Instead of an embedded YouTube player, they can now be displayed as clickable thumbnails/titles!

    You will see these noticeable improvements from this change:
    • Browsing through your movies is a lot faster.
    • The Details Panel loads a lot quicker.
    • Clicking a trailer will now always open it in your default browser!
    This new way of displaying the trailers is switched on by default, and can be switched off if you rather have the embedded trailers by switching the new setting.

    The new setting can be found under “Tools > Options > Customization”, at the bottom:

    • Statistics weren’t showing correctly in Light/System skin
    • Update IMDb rating/votes report: The votes column did not show the right number
    • An access violation error could occur when using Update from Core on a box set

Version 21.4
  • Release Date: Sep 15, 2021
  • Version 21.4 is now available for your Movie Collector software, with a nice graphical update for your folder panel. The folder panel now show horizontal bars in the background behind the folder entries, representing the “relative size” of the folder, that is, relative to the biggest folder in your collection.

    This creates a nice subtitle bar chart in the background, making it easier to spot your biggest Formats, your most popular Actors and Directs, your favorite Genres, etc…

    TIP: Sort by Count(at the top) for a nice chart from biggest to smallest.

    Important: We are confident that MOST users will LOVE this new graphical update.

    BUT: we are also 100% sure that SOME users will absolutely HATE it 🙂
    ( we have been in this business long enough to be aware of that )

    So, of course this new feature is OPTIONAL (although enabled by default). You can switch it off using Tools > Options > Customization > “Show bar chart in folder panel”.


    • The menu item “CLZ Core > Submit item to CLZ Core” was not enabled when using Card View
    • Update from Core: Data Language setting was being ignored
    • Adding Movie Files: better automatic splitting of filename into year and title
    • Added format and format icon for “Movies Anywhere”
Version 21.3.3
  • Release Date: Aug 12, 2021
  • Fixed:
    • Date fields didn’t always transfer correctly
Version 21.3.2
  • Release Date: Aug 7, 2021
  • Improved:
    • Better transfer of pick list data: where possible the tool will copy images and URL fields to the destination field now too.
    • After using the Transfer Field Data tool, modified movies didn’t trigger a change to Sync with CLZ Cloud
Version 21.3
  • Release Date: Aug 3, 2021
  • New “Transfer Field Data” tool

    Not exactly a super common request, but we do see this question regularly:

    ” How can I move all data from field X to field Y? “

    Sometimes the question originates from a user’s new insights into how to use the program’s fields in the best way. But, lately we see the question occur more often from users planning to switch to Movie Connect, and therefore regretting their usage of User Defined Fields and now wanting to move some UDFs to Location, Tags or Notes.

    Sadly, we did not have a solution for this (other than lots of manual labor). But as of today, we will be able to answer the above question better, with a happy:

    “Sure, just use the Transfer Field Data tool, from the Tools menu!”

    A new tool, with a deceptively simple UI (just select the From and To fields).

Version 21.0
  • Release Date: Jan 14, 2021
  • New Pre-fill screen that pops up when adding movies

    When adding a movie to your database using the Add Movies screen, it will now pop-up a new screen called “Pre-fill movie details, letting you set various fields right then and there.

    Fields available in the Pre-fill screen:

    • Location
    • Owner
    • Purchase Date
    • Purchase Store
    • Purchase Price
    • Quantity
    • Tags

    No more need to edit your added movies afterwards!

    (BTW: of course, using the new Pre-fill screen is optional. If you don’t want to use it, just uncheck the “Show Pre-fill screen” toggle at the bottom. You can always re-enable it through the program’s Options screen.)

Version 20.6
  • Release Date: Aug 25, 2020
  • The Manage Pick Lists screen is one of the most important screens of your Movie Collector software. This is the screen you need for:

    • Merging duplicate actor entries
    • Correct a Director sort name
    • Fixing typos in Genres, Tags, Locations, etc…
    • Removing unused pick list entries
    • etc… etc…

    But… judging from daily questions in our support channels, many users don’t even know of its existence. (Hint: it can be opened from the Edit menu). So with today’s update we are aiming to increase the awareness the Manage Pick Lists screen and to make it easier to access from anywhere.


    • User Defined Yes/No fields are now available as options for the folder panel.
    • Edit Multiple: Updating date fields wasn’t always working correctly if you only filled in a year.
    • Edit in List: Editing the Collection Status field did not work.
    • Folder panel: “Collection Status” folder option has been moved to “Personal” heading.
    • Movie files: Episodes wouldn’t play if % was in the file path.

  • Release Date: Jul 30, 2020
    • Please refer to this page for a list of changes
Version 20.4.3
  • Release Date: Jul 1, 2020
  • Fixed:
    • If no rating was set, it would show with rating “0” in the rating column. It now shows “nothing” in the column again.
    • If no rating has been set for a movie, it would show in a “0” folder, and now shows in a “[None]” folder in your folder panel.
