Export a list of my movie titles from Channels?

Does anyone know of a way to export a simple list of all the movie titles in my Channels library?

I have about 900 movies and I would like to export the list of titles in csv or excel for my own record keeping. Is there currently any mechanism for achieving this goal?

Thanks for the quick reply. The new API feature looks great. I will see if I can figure out how to output into a format that will work for me. :grinning:

@rudejustus what columns would you like to have in the Excel sheet?

I'm really just looking for a list of the movie titles. It wouldn't hurt if I could get the release date too, but the title is my only real requirement. I just want to create a simple spreadsheet for keeping track of which movies I have.

I'm working on a script for myself that will do this. Once I'm done with it, I will share it with you, if you are interested. :slight_smile:

That's great. Yes, I would definitely be interested. Thanks very much for your help!

Sorry for the delay, @rudejustus, life got a bit busy and it took me a while to sit down and finish my script.

But finally, it is ready. :slight_smile:
