Download it today and test out the new Auto indexing feature
We have been hard at work to bring new features to you as well as improving a few old ones.
Some customers have reported challenges that we track back to video codecs. To address this in an easy way for you as a user, we have included a set of video codecs inside the Fast Video Cataloger software. This means there is always a working set of video codes for playing and indexing files as a fallback, if the ones on your PC does not work properly. It should give an even more stable experience when playing and indexing lots of video files. You find how to switch between different codecs under preferences/Video player.
Password protection and Auto indexing
Sometimes you need that simple password protection on catalogs so they are safe from curios eyes. I used this recently when I needed to turn my computer in for service. You find the password feature either at the creation of a new catalog or in the File menu in an old one
One of the most anticipated features has been the Auto indexing setting. Point to any folder on your disks to be watched by the program. When Fast Video Cataloger run it will identify new video files inside the folder to add to the catalog. This means you can have a Dropbox folder shared with others where you keep your videos.
Security by 256 bit aes encryption
When you need really tight security you can use the masking feature of Fast Video Cataloger 4. This heavy encryption is done on a video file level so even the video files and filenames on your hard disk is encrypted.
Be careful though. This is a full strength encryption 256 bit aes encryption and we do not have any backdoors. I.e. if you lose the encryption keys there is no way for us to help you get the video back, please use this feature with care!
With this feature comes the capability for Fast Video Cataloger to play video files downloaded with Videodownlodhelper. This is a popular Video download helper add-in for Chrome.
