Pocket AMC Reader

Pocket AMC Reader


This application will allow you to read catalogs created by Ant Movie Catalog on your Android phone. It will read XML catalog and import it into its own database which is done for performance reasons. On each start the application will check size of the XML file and when it changes, database is updated. Depending on size of your catalog and speed of your phone, it might take several minutes to import all movies and to start up.

Converting AMC to XML
If you keep your database in AMC format, you will have to export it to XML to be able to use this application. You can easily do that in 5 steps:

1. Open your AMC database in Ant Movie Catalog
2. Select File -> Save as...
3. Select type XML and click Save
4. When asked about pictures answer OK
5. Copy XML and all pictures to your Android device and start Pocket AMC Reader

If your import crashes leaving you with only few movies imported, you will have to fix your catalog with Ant Movie Catalog script called RemoveBadChars. Run this script on your PC and try again. More at http://forum.antp.be/phpbb2/viewtopic.php?p=33221#33221

It's works but is missing some features I can't find the option to just view the posters, indeed of poster then movie title. Plus there is so much of my screen wasted with black space on my tablet. Finally the text that you force me to use is too small for everyone else who is on the couch to read.

Super Logiciel pour BlueRayvore. J'ai le logiciel depuis longtemps sur mon ordinateur et je rêvais de pouvoir avoir sur moi ma filmothèque. J'ai réussi à faire rentrer 1238 Blu-ray et 2980 dvd avec leur jaquette sur mon S3 Mini...Super Génial pour faire ses emplettes...Merci à toute l'équipe d'AMC. Depuis la version 1.8.4 il est passé en Français...C'est encore mieux...

Ant Movie Database Great App, works like a charm, have been looking for something like this for a long time and now I don't even have to re-enter everything, just had to copy Ant Movie Database from PC to phone. Thank you very much.
