Projects / VVV


VVV (Virtual Volumes View) is an application that catalogs the content of removable volumes such as CD and DVD disks for off-line searching. Folders and files can also be arranged in a single, virtual file system. Each folder of this virtual file system can contain files from many disks.

    Release Notes: This release has been translated to more languages. It can read metadata (author, title and so on) not only from MP3 files, but from almost any audio format. It should not crash anymore with some corrupted MP3 files. It has a new file information dialog that shows all information about a file, included the list of all the virtual folders where it has been copied. Audio metadata cataloging is now optional. Users can disable it.

      Release Notes: The Linux version is also available as a 64-bit program. It is now much simpler to build VVV from sources, especially the Linux version (CMake is used). VVV has been translated to more languages. It is now possible to expand all the sub-folders of a selected folder with a single command. It is now possible to choose the language that will be used by VVV. More powerful search features were added. In virtual view and search view, a command was added to show the selected file or folder in the physical view.

        Release Notes: VVV has been translated into Croatian, Czech, Dutch, English, French, German, Italian, Portuguese, Polish, and Spanish. It is now possible to update an already cataloged volume. Many people are using VVV to catalog removable hard disks: it is useful to see the content of those disks even if they are offline. With this new feature, you can periodically rescan those disks to make sure that the catalog is up to date. The program can be started with command line options to make it portable and to automatically update a volume.

          Release Notes: The program should now be able to correctly handle filenames containing foreign characters. Support for localization was added. At the moment only an Italian version is available: translators are welcome. The ability to backup and restore a catalog was added along with the ability to export data to a CSV file. The program's icons were changed to avoid licensing problems with the Tango icons.

          •  22 Dec 2007 21:14

            Release Notes: A help file was added. Now it is possible to share the same catalog among the computers connected to a network server. A Tools/Options menu was added to handle program settings. Now VVV can automatically reopen the last used catalog. Now it is possible to show only some of the MP3 metadata stored in the catalog. Now the program's windows remember their position and size. Now it is possible to press the F2 key to rename an object. Now it is possible to delete one or more files from a virtual folder. Now the program plays a beep sound at the end of long tasks.

            Since ditching Windows, the only thing I really missed at times was something akin to WhereIsit. I found GWhere, and while it does do the job, I find VVV to be the superior program. Good work!
