iTunes seems to be used more an more on your Mac (and Windows) it is becoming your one stop shop for all of your digital media. One of the problems I face when using iTunes is importing video media. It doesn’t seem as fluid as the other sections, as well as this it never seems to have all of the tagged information of music. This is where iFlicks comes in, it is a video importer for iTunes. Its designed to manage you video files before your import them into iTunes.
Using iFlicks is really simple and clever. Simply select the files you want to import and let it do its magic. The program will go on the net to relevant websites and collect all the data about the video files you have. Say for example you have ripped your movies from DVD’s, as long as it has the correct name the program will be able to collect the genre, actors, and loads of other pieces of information.
Once as it has collected everything you can then hit the import button. Depending on your settings it will convert your video files into iTunes and iPod compatible files. These files can then be used to watch on your iPod or other Apple device. The importing section takes no time at all and I was surprise at how quick it was.
Other than adding files to the program and adding all the metadata there isn’t a lot to this program. But it does work really well. Adding a whole series to the program take no time at all.
This program is top quality. It works really well. Out of my very limited video collection all of the videos could be tagged and imported. This program is cheap at around $18 so it doesn’t break the bank. There are not many negative points to this program. One feature I would like to see is previously imported videos, it has a nice interface and if you are importing hundreds of videos you could waste some time re-importing the same video.
P.S Sorry for the lack of posts over the last couple of days, I have been really busy.
