Managing media information on a computing device. The media information is stored in a plurality of media sources where at least one of the media sources is an external storage associated with the computing device and where at least one of the media sources is a local storage associated with the computing device. The computing device identifies one or more media objects stored in at least the local storage media source and the external storage media source. Metadata relating to the media information stored in the media sources is retrieved from the identified media objects and aggregated. A user interface is generated to display the aggregated metadata on the computing device.
