I have a lot of Audio CDs, DVDs, Data CDs/ DVDs containing audio/ video media like MP3 files or mp4 files, etc.

Could you please recommend some software that will index this media and let me search the database? So, I can tell DVD1 contains this movie and Data DVD4 contains this mp4 file, etc.

I am running Ubuntu 13.04, more specifically, gnome 3.6

sudo apt-get install cdcat
