I made a few changes to iVideo in response to the problems reported here: - iVideo is now a 15-day demo instead of limiting you to 25 movies per library. This will allow you to make sure iVideo can handle all of your movies correctly. - Importing is now handled by a separate helper app that runs in the background, which means iVideo will be more stable during imports. Hopefully that will result in a much improved experience for some people.

I have started using iVideo and I like the app a lot. Can anybody tell me where the app saves the tags & notes etc that you enter? Is it possible to export all video information (time, date, notes, tags, etc) from iVideo?

What's New Version 7.0.1: Fixed issues with inline editing in list view. Fixed a bug with adding online videos using https. Fixed a crash involving the transitions between playlists and videos. Fixed a few minor visual glitches. Other bug fixes. Tested v7.0 and had few bugs indeed Now 7.0.1 has the same bugs as the previous version... i'm under yosemite and when trying to modify Video conversion setting in preference, the pane for mp4 when adding custom settings is all messed up and no way to go back to any functions. Force quit is the only option... Anyone experiencing this? i guess I'm no lucky with this one :D

I've always liked this app and have spent considerable time organising my iVideo 5 library – applying pictures to clips to act as previews, including DVD covers for movies. The problem is, every time (out of 4 attempts) I've tried to update to version 6 of iVideo, the application crashes. And if I uninstall iVideo 5, install version 6 and try to swap the video library files to get my playlists and so on, the application again either doesn't open or destroys my library. Is there a way around this? I know the developer keeps an eye on these comments, so if you are reading this, can you make any suggestions? It would also be nice if, in version 6, there was the choice to have the file names under the files in icon view as opposed to overlaid on the clips themselves. At least if they are overlaid there should be a solid colour behind them so the titles are legible.

MKV format is generally unsupported by QuickTime-based apps, which iVideo might be. Installing Perian sometimes works around that limitation.

mkv video files import fine with Perian installed or even better with VLC installed at the top of your Applications folder.

I have over 1100 mkv files imported into mine. The picture you've shown is not even from the recent version 6. I know 5 and 6 can import mkvs… the Help Versions section says mkv importing was added in 4.0.3. I'd also install both Perian and VLC since iVideo relies on Quicktime and it's plugins or VLC (if found in the Applications). So, update, install the other tools and then see if that works. There's always a chance that it may just be having a problem with some of your videos but not all.

Hi, I can confirm that MKV files play correctly as long as the Perian QuickTime component is installed. I always keep a small set of MKV files around for testing purposes. Check the F.A.Q. in the help files for links to the recommended QuickTime components to get.

For your interest: Perian is abandon ware. Not sure if one would depend on this.

If you have a Smart List created using "Playlist is 'Source playlist 1'", "Playlist is 'Source playlist 2'", etc. with Live updating, and you add new videos into the Souce playlists, The Smart Playlist doesn't update with the new videos as expected. Even quitting and re-opening doesn't work. You must edit the Smart Playlist and re-save it and then the new videos appear.

Clarification. If drop the video into All videos to import and then move it to the Source playlist, the smart playlist does auto update. If I drop the video directly into the source playlist to import, that's where it doesn't auto update.

Seems to cause a large memory leak within Window Server. Not sure if number of videos added has any bearing. Open the app and immediately my Window Server memory starts climbing from starting point of around 150 MB to very high if you leave it open for an hour+. It grew to 2 GBs at one point. Quit that app and it's stops growing. Watching Activity monitor, the memory moves up 1-2 MB every 5-10 seconds. Quitting the app may cause it to slowly start going back down or at least drop a little bit then stop, but if the memory has grown to multiple GBs, the only solution is to reboot to get the memory back quickly. Purging the system memory doesn't have any affect and it remains Active memory.

I am using this software quite for some time and was a bit worried as well that iVideo start to be a Abandonware. Therefore I was more than happy to see that there have been some actions made lately to update iVideo not only to work better with the latest OSX version but also add new features as well. I encountered some issues which I have reported to Mike and there was for each bug report a fix so far - some been fixed within one day only. Anyone who is looking for a software to organize your movie files I really encourage to download the software and give a try with a trial - there are some features you wont see on the spot but are very handy for the daily workflow. Comparing to other apps for the same purpose the price tag is very comprehensive and for my personally is iVideo the best choose regarding features and price. I hope there are more peoples who see the potential of this software and support with there purchase future development.

Hi, can you explain what you mean by this? Are you trying to add videos to your library by moving them to a folder in the Finder, or are you referring to the playlist folders in iVideo?

if you add a video to an existing folder in the finder, the video does not show up in the ivideo smart playlist folder for that folder

Oh, you have to add the files to iVideo first. You can either drag the files onto the iVideo window, or you can choose "File > Add Files to Library" or "File > Find New Videos" from the menu. Once you do that they should show up in the smart playlists in your library.

I have been using it for about 2 hours and it has crashed about 10 times already. Nice interface, easy to use, but VERY crash prone. Given that development has not moved since Sept 2010, I'd seriously advice not buying it.
