Fellow Forum Members,
Can anyone recommend an app (preferably free) that can check through a bunch of video clips and identifiy duplicate or near duplicate video clips? I need a fast way of identifying duplicate video clips for fast deletion. I run a video business and need to make space on my customer archive hard drive. Thanks in advance for any help.

Google

Duplicate Files Finder

and you should get some good results, none that I see are video specific though. Although I guess that would only find identical files, not edits of the same video.

I googled the above term but replaced files with video, got this:

http://visualsearchpony.com/

Can't vouch for it, haven't used it.

Reason,
Thanks for the link. This type of app is exactly what I am looking for. The frosting on the cake seems to be that it's FREE. I say "seems to be" because I suspect the FREE applies to a basic version and the full version probably is not FREE. I need to check this out. It supports the MP4 format I work with which is great. Should save me a lot of time. Thanks again.

I would also recommend Visual Search Pony. Besides the way, they changed the name to duplicatevideosearch.com.

I'm a professional video editor and my computer is usually full of copies of various clips, related to my work.

Previously I was trying to organize them, by creating some directory structure, like a year>month>project, but this didn't always help, since some clips are common for several projects and some projects are ongoing, so there can be multiple folders per one project.

All this lead to a headache, each time, I needed to find smth.

This product helped me to put them in order. I would not say, that my problem was completely resolved, but it is easier now to find, what I'm looking for. I'm just running Duplicate Video Sarch other the whole hard drive and got all duplicate videos grouped together.

This will be what you’re looking for...

Duplicate Files Deleter is a simple, but effective tool to locate duplicate files in one or more selected search paths. It scans the files and compares them based on Byte for Byte Comparison, which ensures 100% accuracy. You can then choose to delete the selected duplicate or original files. The program is multi-threaded and performs scans quickly.

You can go through this way: http://DuplicateFilesDeleter.com
