[ Via Apple.com ] Does for movies what iTunes does for music. Instantly display, organize, sort, and browse thousands of flix by title, genre, artist, and more. Add flix from the Internet Movie Database, or drag and drop movie files, folders, DVDs, or CDs. Track thousands of flix available on the Internet and launch your BitTorrent client to download your favorites.

If you choose the official BitTorrent client, iFlix can use your operating system to launch your BitTorrent client. We prefer Azureus as it is much more system-friendly, but iFlix can't yet initiate a download automatically
What's New
Version 1.45:
  • Added Synchronize Filenames with Displayed Names feature (Advanced Menu) - this feature can rename any flick file to the name you have assigned to it - use with caution as there is not an undo feature! - Thanks to B. Whitson for this suggestion, and we have already used it ourselves! The flix must, of course, be accessible (online) and not on CDs/DVDs. This is very handy for anything you have downloaded using BitTorrent so you can give your filenames meaningful / consistent names.

    Use iFlix's Find/Replace, Prepend, and Append to change multiple item names, then when you have them all as you'd like, use the Synchronize feature and you'll then be even more organized.

  • Added a preference Always Ask For Torrent Download Folder - if true, iFlix will always ask where to download torrents - handy if you have multiple computers downloading using Azureus setup with Auto-Downloading

Program works great, just as described. Definitely going to put this one to heavy use. Thanks!

The concept is good but the time was spend on the installer and not the app. I would pull it down and polish the UI and functionality until I had something that was simple and clean.

Slow and clunky. Nice idea but I find it easier to use my Panther Finder - it's faster for one and more straightforward.

This app still needs a lot of work.

Is it legal? no.
Will you get caught? Highly doubtful.

what's funny is that no one has caught the irony here... the irony in the fact that this app is posted at Apple.com at their third-party software downloads page.

think for a minute. a software that allows for downloading pirated movies, and it is posted at the Apple website.

Can you say PlayFair? Or how about Pixar? i could go on, but perhaps you get the picture. heh.

Umm, well, I think you're missing the point here. This is a generic product for viewing videos, and it hooks into torrents. Big deal. That's about as illegal as itunes itself. There are tons of torrents of movies that are in the public domain which are perfectly legal, just like there are tons of mp3s out there that are perfectly legal! So, where is the illegal activity? You could have said that about Winamp or Audion or any of the other pre-itunes-music-store products.

it has an itunes "concept" but i think the gui should really be worked on more.. and if it could play the movies inside the player, kind of a "windows media player" for windows thing would be nice.. perhaps the author of this can work with vlc ...

It does not exactly that for movies what iTunes does for music: It is not freeware!
But ok, it's a nice app. It works.
