I am looking for Calibre-like software to manage off-line learning video (such as from coursera, Lynda or from no-name author) courses saved on local disc.

All courses can be tagged and filtered by fields: Author, Language, Publisher etc.

Each course can be divided into chapters (= directory on fs) an themes (= file). This structure can be borrowed from fs.

Learning progress (which chapter I have seen/time/last position saved) should be also tracked.

Video can be shown in embedded player VLC or other open source player with SRT support.

    Any specific operating system, or should it be cross-platform like Calibre?

You are unlikely to find a collection manager tailored specifically for offline training courses, however one of these two collection managers may fit your needs:

  • I will try to use Datacrow

  • It looks like VLC itself has your own collection manager
