For years I've maintained the ChapterGrabber application that can extract chapters from Bluray, DVD, and HD-DVD so it can apply names to each chapter.  Since version 4.2, I incorporated a database into the application to compliment the TagChimp database.  Over time the database has grown and there are now over 31,000 chapter sets and over 612,000 individual chapters.

Current Stats

As of 2011-12-23 11:10 AM

Type Count
DVD 14865
Blu-Ray 10688
HD-DVD 103
Other 5497
Total 31153


Previously, the only way to access all this useful information was the ChapterGrabber application.  With a website, more users can access the data and eventually maintain the data.

Introducing ChapterDb.org

Although the website is under early development, you can already search for chapters and see top contributors.

The following future enhancements are planned:

  • Cleanup and combine duplicates
  • Better API support
  • IMDb and TMDb integration
  • Star high quality chapter set
  • Flag low quality chapter set
  • Download support in multiple formats
  • Better searching

I was wondering if you have any documentation for the chapterDB.org API? I was going to throw together a OSX application that would auto add chapter information to MP4 files on macs using mp4v2's mp4chaps tool to append the chapter information and your chapterDB.org database to add the data. As always I would give you full credit, and it would be 100% freeware application. I would also not mind porting your ChapterGrabber application to OSX. Please let me know. Popmedic.
