It would be good to organize all of your movies and TV shows into one central application. And from the research, we are able to conclude that iTunes would be the best software for what we would be using it for. As you know, iTunes is a free app that runs on Mac, PC, iPhone, iPod, iPad and Apple TV. With it, you can organize and play digital music and videos on your computer easily, but due to file format issues, iTunes can't support these formats (mostly MKV, AVI, VOB, MPG, TiVo, etc).
