horrible software,
good idea but terrible execution.

i like the fact that it organizes my movies and lets me play from vlc or another movie player, but the functions are soooo..... This program is half done and the developer should not ask more than 5$ for this. It´s full of bad accomplished stuff.
An example:
If you choose to move or copy your videos to the iFlicks library when you import them, well, you should later be able to move your library to another location or external drive, and then just put the new library path in the iflicks preferences, thats how itunes and iphoto works! but not in iflicks! if you move the library the movies wont work. you must have the library in the original location. what´s the interest of having a library?... what a crap!!! I have my iTunes and iPhoto libraries saved on a network computer to save disc space in my mac and i thought i could do the same with my videos.. i was wrong.
inability to edit movies information in gallery mode
inability to create folders in the playlist
inability to open iflicks always in galery mode
etc etc etc
also very buggy and slow. they copied itunes interface , but not apples innovative features.

Good start for an app. Loads of promise. Kind of reminds me of early versions of GarageSale, which seemed clunky, but now seems dead polished- hopefully this will go the same way.

However- have been waiting for an update from 1.1 for a long time now, with some necessary features- multiple editing of items for one. Come on, let's have this ASAP- for $30 I would expect more regular updates.

What I'm seeing now is a cripple fight between the top two shareware video gallery software apps, iFlicks and Movie Gallery. What we need is a union between them to make a fully useful application. On their own, they're half of what they should be for twice the price they seem worth.

Here's what I've found so far:

Video Formats
iFlicks - info support of all quicktime readable, windows media and real media
MG - only support for Quicktime readable

Thumbnails
iFlicks - bigger, with live updating preview frames, .mpeg, .rm, and .wmv make no thumbs
MG - previews made only during import, .mov and mpegs 1-4 supported

Interface Controls
iFlicks - clunky and incomplete
MG - more complete, less space efficient

Libraries
iFlicks - tries to do the iPhoto method
MG - supports multiple libraries as files (better)

List View
iFlicks - so many fields you won't use them all
MG - basic fields, more would be nice

Very nice, but the GUI definitely needs some polish and refinement. Also needs some improvements speed-wise.

I've been using this app for a few days now, and I have noticed a whole slew of bugs.
1. If you select multiple movies and select to edit movie info (CMD - I) it takes you to a dialog similar to iTunes, but you can only edit data for one movie at a time. For example if i wanted to change the name of mulitiple movies to the same, I have to change each, individually.
2. It seems to crash more than it should (for a 1.0)
3. It seems to loose track of tracks that have already been imported, not displaying them in the library.
4. Deleting movies from a playlist can also delete them from your library, if you are not careful.
5. Double-clicking a movie doesn't play it, it selects that text box for editing.
6. Support of more filetypes could be in order (wmv, asf).
7. There are more, but these are the ones I notice most.
There are the makings of a nice app here, but I think it may have been released a bit to premature. I look forward to more versions, but until then, I'll let Finder and QT do my movie sorting.

This is an interesting application. This mimics the iTunes interface pretty well, so it's familiar and pretty easy to use. that's nice. However, there's 2 big reasons why I'm not going to use it, and 1 feature that I think would make it much better.

2 reasons:

1) Its Netflix support is pretty bad. It's not entirely clear how to use it: the My Netflix popup never had anything below the separator. In the rental history selection, it didn't tell me what those green and red squares in the first column were. It gives very little information about what I'm seeing - pretty much just the title, and in the queue it has the number as well. No Netflix rating, no information about the movie, nothing. Granted, for real Netflix control you should go with Netflix Freak, but I still expected more from iFlicks.

2) It's $30. And it doesn't really give me any reason to pay that. I don't have very many movies on my computer, so I'm not in dire need of an organizer. Especially since I don't have any information about said movies aside from the names. So using iFlicks is pretty much worthless. Maybe if I kept a lot of TV series on my computer it would be worth more (I do occasionally download episodes of 2 different series, but I delete them after watching because I don't need to waste the space). This is the biggest question about this application - most people don't keep a lot of movies on their computers. Movies are large. Music, on the other hand, is much smaller and is used much more often and lasts for a shorter time, so people keep a *lot* more on their computers. That needs an organizer. Movies generally don't need an application to organize - a simple folder hierarchy generally does the trick.

If iFlicks improved the Netflix support so it's actually usable and dropped the price down to maybe $12.99 or something, I'd actually consider buying it. But right now, definitely not.

The one feature I think would greatly enhance iFlicks:

The ability to fetch information about movies. It should be able to query Amazon.com to get all the information it wants about a movie, the same way Delicious Library does. This would actually give me a reason to start putting movies into iFlicks, because I could gather information about them and organize them that way. And when I say Amazon.com, I really mean the source that's best for that medium. For movies, Amazon.com is probably decent, but for, say, Anime, there's probably a better place to get information from.

Yeah, except it's not *free*. Horrid price.
