Just released another beta version 0.5,
which fixes some major bugs and seems to work stable.
Now it is possible to enjoy movies right from omov with the
new built-in video player (QuickTime required).

OurMovies single purpose is managing your movies -easy, isn't it, huh?!
It does so by providing a simple table where a single row represents your movie. Because a movie can consist of multiple files, omov assumes your movies are all stored in their own folders. So it just let's you manage them; no playing at all, that's out of scope.
If you have a current
QuickTime installed, you even can watch movies right from the application (proper codec required).


Data versions

OurMovies uses different data sources which all have different versions and are all incompatible to each other. There are tree different sources existing:

If one of the core sources versions does not match (by comparing the data source with the expected application version) an error dialog will be displayed and OurMovies quit immediately. If the preferences source is incompatible an appropriate converter will try to convert the stored data into the new version by using some default values.

For solutions about version mismatches see the troubleshooting section below.
