I have spent years ripping and downloading a nice collection (about 1,000) of my favorite movies. Currently, they are all on a Seagate FreeAgent external hard drive and when I want to watch one I simply click on the file in windows explorer and watch in Windows Media Player. Pretty old school setup. Are there any software programs that refine and sophisticate this approach? I saw a video of the Popcorn Hour C-200 in action with some kind of software that turned the movies on the internal hard drive into a veritable on-screen jukebox with supplied information from IMDB. Does something similar exist without buying a 300 dollar piece of hardware? Anybody know what I'm talking about?
Any help will be apprecited.
I didn't find the right solution from the Internet.
