iDentify is an OS X application for tagging iTunes-compatible MP4 video files.

Normally, when you convert a video file to the format used by iOS devices such as the iPad, iPod, iPhone, or AppleTV, all the information about the video is missing! The only thing you see is the name of the file where the title of the video should be! Enter iDentify 2!

iDentify looks at the name of files as they are added to it. Based on the name of the file, iDentify determines whether it is a TV show or movie based on common naming conventions. From the file name, a lot of information can be gleaned, such as movie title, show name, more...

What's New

Version 545:
  • Fixes file parsing error that resulting in all numbers in movie file names being treated as ID numbers instead of what they were supposed to be, such as dates and years.

Requirements

OS X 10.5 or later

This is a good tag updater, but it lacks a couple of important features.
One is we should be able to select which tags to overwrite vs all of them in the advance settings.
Another, it should be able to add to tags. i.e. add the tag to the Gravity (2013). I know I can do this by hand, but is not fun when you have a lot of movies.

How do I edit my own review...it took a whole sentence out...Another, it should be able to add the "year" tag to the "title" tag, etc. i.e. add the tag to the Gravity (2013).

Latest version continues to lookup incorrect meta data for movies.

For some reason in the latest version it keeps wanting to set movies up as either "Shadows in Paradise" or "Ariel" - Out of like 100 movies, it's tried to change about 10 of the meta data info to those two movies. I have to go in, look at the title of the movie, the actual movie title, which it's not using, and then look at ID number up in IMDB, re-set the ID Number and then rescan the item and it finds all the correct info.

Yes I have the exact same issue. I have even added a movie that I just tagged and it still has the wrong information. It never used to do this at all. I get a lot of crashes as well. I used to love the program now it is a headache. It only does it on movies not TV shows.

Same problem here - every movie comes back as either 'Persepolis' or 'Ariel'. Only way to make it work properly on movies is to look up the 'tt' ID on IMDB, paste that into the ID Number tag field and then select Rescan Item(s), which sort of defeats the object.

I like the functionality and the interface is reasonably easy to use, but the performance is too inconsistent and makes using the app far too frustrating. Tagging the first half of a season of a tv show one day and then not being able to tag the remainder the next day is beyond inconsistent.

I know it's been a while, but I'd like to hear more about your troubles. I'm quite sure there is a reasonable explanation for it.

It's a tossup between this and MetaX, which is long in the tooth but still does some things better than iDentify. iDentify is very fiddly. It often won't find titles that I can find searching for the exact same string on tagChimp manually. It doesn't let you edit some fields (e.g., the "comment" field). There's no easy option to disable writing all chapters if the chapter names it finds are garbage—you have to manually delete them one at a time, and if there are 25 chapters, that's pretty tedious.

Thanks for the feedback. I'll keep these in mind while working on iDentify 3.

It's a great little app and with the fee, ***but why does it change an mp4 to m4v?*** I really like to keep them as mp4.

Found the answer! Disable "iTunes friendly extensions" in the
preferences. Doh! LOL!!!

Great app!
Maybe because it's a 32-bit app, not 64, but any file I tag that is over ~4GB takes FOREVER to save. Anything under 4GB saves instantly.
I don't have any issues looking up metadata, just saving files.
This is on Mountain Lion on my rMBP and Mac Pro.
