In this article, I will cover a free tool to generate movie catalog using IMDb data. IMDb (Internet Movie Database) is the wide database that provides information related to movies, TV series, etc.
There are many free software out there to generate movie catalog. Most of those software use IMDb API to fetch the information from the IMDb database. But, over the period of time, API got updated and left most of those software broken.
To overcome this problem, OMDb tool uses its own custom OMDb API rather than using IMDb API. This custom API fetches information directly from the IMDb website. So, the chances of things getting broken are minimal here.
