The issue with iFlicks selecting the wrong audio track is a big one. Best would be just to let me pick an audio track when multiple audio tracks found, because now it's a lottery and usually the wrong audio track is selected. Fix it please.

Never notice this issue cause I just leave the original audio track. I take out all of the other audio tracks (if present) with MKVTOOLS first and than use iFlicks: http://www.macupdate.com/app/mac/24872/mkvtools
Because it adds up to the file weight.
I leave the commentaries, etc, of course.

I just wish they would upgrade this with some new features to.

That is the problem if you have more than one track. I have a bunch of films that after iFlicks is done with them have commentary as the main track for some reason.

I would give it a perfect 5 if the preset "Reference File" would work. But no, I have change iTunes to work in 32bit (because thats the recommendation on iFlicks site for this preset to work) and although it makes the small reference file appear and play fine in iTunes, it does not appear or play in my Apple TV 3.
I have to mux (without encoding) all my MKV films with the option "iTunes compatible". Witch is perfect by the way. But it takes more time than a simple "Reference File". Waiting for the next update to "fix" this. But still, a great app that I'm going to by in the next update. ;-)

Isn't iFlicks supposed to embed SubStation Alpha from MKV?!

it should, but it doesn't work! Really annoying!
I'm importing in iTunes all my movies from DVD, extracting them with makeMKV, and, before using iFlicks, I have an MKV with every subtitles I want; after iFlicks, no subs.

Am I doing something wrong or it's an iFlicks problem?

another thing I've noticed: iFlicks put the actors in a random order, not in the importance order (how it should be, and how it is already done in The Movie Database)!!

Great App!!! The best in its genre, with its precise metadata and artworks from "The Movie Database".

But..

1) It's not possible to import a video with its subtitles (.srt and .sub files)

2) It's not possible to import from a DVD (like from a VIDEO_TS folder or an .iso file)

3) It's not possible to specifically choose which fields take from TMDb (for example I would like to deselect to import comments, tagline and stars).

4) It doesn't work on correcting genre and stars when you select multiple movies.

5) It sometimes crashes, specially with .flv video


Fix these things, and this app will be a 5 STAR app!

UPDATE: 2 stars!

I've just bought Elgato Turbo.264 HD and I've discovered that iFlicks doesn't work with Elgato Turbo.264 HD !!

Another thing: iFlicks put the actors in a random order, not in the importance order (how it should be, and how it is already done in The Movie Database)!!

A lot of things to fix here. For the moment I'm looking for other apps..

See here why they decided to remove compatibility with the Elgato Turbo-264 stick:

Nice functionality, however...

Only processes one file at a time, making progress very slow for multi-file batches.

Generates a large amount of inactive RAM when doing batches, and never seems to release it. If I do a TV season for example, I have to restart my Mac afterwards to get my memory back (2.8 GHz i7 with 16 GB RAM).

Try this and see if it helps with the RAM issue:

But I don't know how useful is this kind of apps anyway. :-)

Thanks, but that's just a GUI wrapper for the purge command. Already tried that in Terminal but no luck.

Hi, I just updated my Iflicks on my wifes mac 10.5 and the new version isn't compatible with that but every time I download a previous version it reverts to the new one and I cant seem to get it to work. Is there a work around for this problem?

Many thanks

If you have not updated to 1.4 yet, do yourself a favour - don't. I don't use the encoding functionality so my review is specifically about the metadata function.

I have raved about and recommended iFlicks to a lot of people, it is an excellent app that does metadata search and write quickly and efficiently - except version 1.4.

The switch from AppleScript to Services, while a little painful, would have been more palatable if the new method worked - the simple fact is that it doesn't. In fact with 1.4 the app has become one frustrating to use crippled mess. The selected service will work 1 in 10 times, the app 9 out of 10 times will hang - and that is when trying to add media by the service menu, + button or drag and drop.

It is astounding that the developer has released such a buggy mess to the market. I have downgraded to 1.2.3 because it actually works. I'll think long and hard before upgrading again.

I'm using iFlicks from the start (bought it not stole it) an it was great.

New version is also very good and i haven't encountered any problems. I do only 'iTunes compatible', but it works very well. I also use folder action to import videos and i have some rules set in iFlicks itself.

So far it's perfect record.

Please try the latest update (1.4.1), it will fix the problem with the services. It is available for download from the website now and will be in the App Store soon.

Full credit to the developer for the quick update, 1.4.1 is back to working flawlessly.

iFlicks is the best app for iTunes metadata on the Mac, fast, efficient and accurate.
