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.

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.
