[Ubuntu 12.04 LTS] Video organisation/tagging software using external storage.

So I am about to embark on a long research expedition which involves me documenting large amounts of video. To store it on my computer would be impractical due to the quantity, so I have a 2TB hard drive for that. I would like a way of organising it via tags, as each video may be relevant to multiple topics.

I have seen some multimedia organisation and metadata applications that allow for tagging, but most of them seem to be geared towards organising movies, and by the looks of them they need to have the videos on the computer, rather than an external hard drive. I may, however, be wrong about this.

Has anyone got any recommendations as to good software for organising like this?

Thanks in advance.
