For those of us who are a bit of a mess about having to keep our video files correctly labeled, organized and in a format compatible with our iOS or iTunes devices, any application that makes this task easier is welcome.
Today we want to show you iFlicks, an application for OS X that in addition to conversion functions is capable of adding all the information to our video files , whether it is a TV series or a movie. We show you in video how iFlicks works.
As you can see in the video the operation of iFlicks is simple and effective. We will have a main window to which we will drag the video files. Then we click on the file and then on the icon Search details that is located at the bottom of the application window.
A window will appear with a list of titles similar to the one in our file. It is important that it contains only the name and spelled correctly (no The.Spiderman.2012) so that the application finds similar results more quickly.
Selecting the title of the list of films or similar programs that we believe correct we accept and in a matter of seconds we will have added the title, actors, directors, synopsis, etc…
Now, at the top of the iFlicks window we select the preset we want to use, a great news is the possibility to make use of elgato Turbo.264 HD (device we analyzed in Apple), the location where the new file will be saved and if we want it to be added automatically to iTunes and the original file is deleted or not.
But there’s more. iFlicks allows us, via the iTunes Services menu, to add information to the files already added to our iTunes library . In this way, if at the time we do not fill in the fields, with iFlicks we can do it without having to make conversions again.
iFlicks is an application available on the Mac App Store for £1.59 £7.99 (buy it from the Mac App Store as the licence fee from the web is £14.99) which, if you have different film or TV series files in your iTunes library without the metadata, is well worth it.
One last note. If anyone has problems adding or playing a file in iTunes, change the run mode from 64-bit to 32-bit. As indicated in the iFlicks blog.
iFlicks requires Perian that despite being discontinued you can still download from this link and remains one of the essential add-ons to install on every Mac.
The price has changed, it now costs £3.99. The price has changed again. It now costs £17.99.
