Searching barcodes of DVD's

Okay, simple question which isn't 100% Delphi related, but still... :-)

I have a barcode reader which I can use to scan the barcodes of the DVDs in my collection and the ISBN numbers of by books. Since I have a huge collection, it's a good way to get them catalogues quickly. And using this barcode reader is way too easy so no problem there.

No, the problem is searching for these codes and getting the proper descriptions and titles for these books and DVDs. There must be several online databases containing this information but where are they and how to use them in my Delphi code? Or to put it simple: has anyone already created some code to do this? :)

Well, that it can be done is shown by http://www.collectorz.com/movie/ where they're providing a good solution. It is what I am using at this moment but it has no source code. (Well, I could listen to the network traffic that it's doing.) But I have no use for this data in some propriety database, even though it provides an export method. I want to maintain my own list. (And keep it up-to-date in the background continuously.)

It seems most programs get the book info from Amazon.
