Types of information

Previous pageReturn to chapter overviewNext page

CATVids stores several types of information:

Videos. You can enter information such as such as title, format, release year, publisher, purchase price, cover image, etc. "Video" is a general term that can mean a Buy-ray disc, a DVD disc, a VHS video tape, a laserdisc, and so forth.
You work with videos in the Video View.
Contents. You can enter information such as title, studio, director, producer, cast, rating, synopsis, etc. "Contents" is a general term for any recording or work (segment) that is contained within a video (a video can contain multiple segments).
You work with contents data in the Contents View.
Note: To add new contents data, bring up the 'Video Edit' window, and add contents data via the contents list.
Lookup tables. Lookup tables are lists that contain information linked to data fields, for example the Person, Format or Genre lists. When you modify an entry in a lookup table, for example to fix a typing error, the change will be reflected in all data fields that are linked to this lookup table.
You work with lookup tables in the Lookup View.
Select the lookup table you want to edit from the View button on the toolbar.
Loan data. This includes both videos that currently are on loan, and the complete loan history.
Open the Loan View to look at the loan history.
To get an overview of videos current out on loan you can also use the Video View (select the On Loan filter).
Want list. The want list allows you to keep track of videos you have on your want list. You can enter information such as title, format, release date/year, order date, and price.
You edit the want list from the Want List View.
