Not bad, but for less money (20$) You can buy much
faster and slightly better iVideo.

What I'm seeing now is a cripple fight between the top two shareware video gallery software apps, iFlicks and Movie Gallery. What we need is a union between them to make a fully useful application. On their own, they're half of what they should be for twice the price they seem worth.

Here's what I've found so far:

Video Formats
iFlicks - info support of all quicktime readable, windows media and real media
MG - only support for Quicktime readable

Thumbnails
iFlicks - bigger, with live updating preview frames, .mpeg, .rm, and .wmv make no thumbs
MG - previews made only during import, .mov and mpegs 1-4 supported

Interface Controls
iFlicks - clunky and incomplete
MG - more complete, less space efficient

Libraries
iFlicks - tries to do the iPhoto method
MG - supports multiple libraries as files (better)

List View
iFlicks - so many fields you won't use them all
MG - basic fields, more would be nice

Hi Hoby!

Well don't agree that there's a cripple fight between MovieGallery and other video gallery software. MovieGallery has some distinct features/differences that make it unique. We have always had the web-publishing part in mind when developing the app and we needed re-compression and stability. That's why we choose to build it around QuickTime. This is my opinion on your ideas:

Video Formats
QuickTime is fully extensible by adding components. Today we can play a wide selection of video formats and more is coming. When Tiger arrives we will also have support for H264 which is one of the best video formats seen to date. We could have implemented ffmpeg support but we needed the export functions of QuickTime in order to make this app happen. There's also some legal problems around ffmpeg that seems bad at the moment. Read more at http://ffmpeg.sourceforge.net/

Thumbnails
You say that previews only are made during import which is actually wrong. You can easily ctrl-click on any frame in the movie and build a new thumbnail. You can also choose an picture as a thumbnail.

Interface Controls
We have always tried to follow the human interface guidelines from Apple (even though Apple don't do it themselves). You say that MG is less space efficient than the competition. Do you know that you can hide the toolbar by clicking at the icon in the window's upper right corner? Do you know that you can hide the left pane by dragging the divider all the way to the left? You will only have the movie left on screen which seems pretty space efficient to me.

Libraries
Yes, MG has a totally different approach to libraries that the competition. We work document-based and it will soon show that this makes a great difference ;-)

List View
You want more fields? Which?

best regards / Jörgen

I agree, this is written way better than iVideo. There are a couple of things though that I think should be added:

1. Support for non-Quicktime movies (Realplayer, Windowsmedia, etc.).

2. Multiple Libraries. Multiple playlists are great but not complete without separate Library files.

Otherwise, great job so far.. Also, the ability to open movies into their own windows would be useful sometimes.

Oops, scratch number 2. I didn't realize MovieGallery's window is a savable document, which you can have as many as you want.

So I guess just plugging into other formats is my only feature suggestion.

MovieGallery is a document-based application. You can have as many galleries as you like. Just select New from the File menu.

iMovie Gallery is far away from iVideo.
It can make you share on web and that's the point

On the surface MovieGallery might look like iVideo, but under the hood they're totally different. MovieGallery is written in Cocoa and it's designed as a document-based application. You can work with multiple galleries at the same time! You can share your work on the internet using beautiful web templates. And much, much more. So, again, they might look like each other but they are in fact very different.
