This developer does great work, however, MetaX can chapterize your files and it is free... Food for thought.

MovieChapterizer shows a lot of promise with a nice UI and a fast and reliable delivery of the final file, but support for a wider variety of formats like flash, and h264 is a must before considering charging for it.

I look forward to downloading the next version.

I tested this app and I really saw a potential in it. I've been searching for something like this for a while now and couldn't wait to test it.

Though the first I noticed was that I couldn't add chapters to movies I encoded with Quicktime Pro (High resolution h.264 for iPod/iTunes, .m4v) which is the main goal for me. It did support files encoded with Virtual hub which plays fine on the iPod, the only difference is that the Virtual hub file makes mp4-files instead of m4v. If support for these files are added I will buy this program!

Also, I think I found a little bug. When I add a chapter to a movie, it doesn't show up in the column to the right. At first I thought that I did something wrong and added another chapter (a few seconds later than the first). Then, when I saved the chapters and opened the movie in Quicktime there was in fact two chapters there. This will certainly be fixed in the near future.

To sum up, I really like the app and will buy it if Quicktime encoded h.264 will be supported.

A little update, it seems that I no longer can open the Visual hub encoded mp4-files. Don't know what happened.. I hope this can be resolved!

Regular QuickTime H.264 encoded files are supported, but not if they are for m4v files, i.e. for the iPod. This is not a restriction that MovieChapterizer requires but because m4v files with chapter data aren't allowed by iTunes. If iTunes changes to allow such files through to the iPod then MovieChapterizer will allow them to be created.


I too downloaded moviechapterizer 2.5 hoping to be able to add chapters to mp4 files created in visualhub. I have been able to create mp4 files with chapters using handbrake if the source is from a dvd, and I am able to use these files with chapters in my ipod.
MovieChapterizer 2.5 on Leopard won't let me import any file with .mp4 or .m4v extentions.


"js8dev (developer) replied:
...m4v files with chapter data aren't allowed by iTunes...."

But I have m4v files with chapter marks created by Handbrake on my iPad right now. Apparently, it can be done even if iTunes doesn't allow it.


Just change the extension! There isn't any real difference, other than the file extension. Apple uses m4v to flag it as a video file and attach it to iTunes. An m4v is more likely to have video ID3 style tags embedded. But in the long run, an mp4, m4a and m4v are all variations of the exact same file type.


Macrob, thanks for the suggestion. I tried converting my h.264 video from .mp4 to .m4v. MovieChapterizer still won't import it.

So, I don't know why MC won't import these files. The developer says that QT h.264 encoded files are supported. QT didn't create the movies, but it's inspector says that the format is h.264.
