VideoDrive

Add your video collection to iTunes with one click.

VideoDrive overview

VideoDrive makes adding videos to iTunes, iPhone, iPad, and Apple TV as easy as drag-and-drop.

  • Add any video format: VideoDrive supports over 20 video formats, including MP4, MKV, AVI, MOV, VIDEO_TS and FLV. If you have it, VideoDrive will put it in iTunes.
  • Identify movies and TV shows: Movies and TV Shows are automatically added to the right category in iTunes. With matching descriptions and artwork found online. You can also categorise videos as Home Videos, Music Videos and even iTunes U videos.
  • Videos on the go: With you videos in iTunes, you can sync them easily to your iPhone or iPad, or watch them on the big screen with Apple TV. VideoDrive can automatically sync newly imported videos to your iOS devices..
  • Share your videos: VideoDrive is compatible with iTunes Home Sharing and Airplay. Share your video collection with anyone in your household and beam videos to Airplay enabled devices.
  • Works with the tools you know:Download videos from Transmission and convert them with HandBrake, Elgato Turbo.264 (HD) or QuickTime.
  • Queue and Process: Queue your new videos and until the time is right to add them to iTunes. Or let VideoDrive do its thing at night. New option to postpone conversions when running on battery power.
  • Inbox folders: With Hot Folders, you can create inbox folders in Finder. Any new video file that arrives in this folder will be added to iTunes, even if VideoDrive is not running.
  • Store videos where you want: Store videos locally or on an external disk or NAS, while keeping your music on your main drive. With VideoDrive, you just set and forget.
  • Add matching subtitles: Like watching foreign videos? VideoDrive will add SRT subtitles files to your videos. And browse the web and automatically download matching subtitles in your language (Requires the Subtitles app).
  • Backup: Optionally keep a copy of your original video files in a separate folder or external disk as a backup.

Note: This demo version is fully functional and allows you to import and tag 15 videos.

Version: 3.7.06
Apple has released macOS Catalina 10.15 on 7 October 2019. The latest version of VideoDrive is not compatible with this version as iTunes has been retired. When launching VideoDrive you will get a warning and VideoDrive will quit. If you rely heavily on VideoDrive, it is advised not to upgrade yet. If you do upgrade, all videos previously imported by VideoDrive into iTunes will become available in the new TV app. VideoDrive 3 will most likely not be made compatible with macOS Catalina as it would require a complete rewrite of the software.

Version 3.7.05 is also NOT working correctly with Mojave, or it has somehow taken five steps backward in its ability to scan or even add simple IMDB data to the metadata of a file. The result is a "lost" video, added to iTunes somewhere, listed as something that has no relation to the title, genre, year, etc. Mind you, the result I describe is achieved for me only after asking the app to simply copy the page info from my browser, after I've done all the work. Please test and fix.

3.7.03 states incompatibility with Mojave. Is an update from 10.13 to 10.14 really that hard? Looking forward to said update, as the app is very well done.

Deals with any video file I throw at it. Automatically processes them, downloads metadata and adds them to iTunes as movies or TV shows. And initiates a sync with my iPhone afterwards so my videos are copied. All without any interaction on my part. There's no other app that does this. Highly recommended.

While VideoDrive is excellent at adding all my videos to iTunes, I do wish Apple would release an overhauled version of iTunes as the interface has become too bloated and confusing.

Save your money. This app is mediocre at best and you have a number of free alternatives that perform just as well if not better.

As a long standing user, I just upgraded to 3.1. This is a huge upgrade, they could as well have called this version 4. You can now see all your video files in queue and their status. Very convenient, makes me wonder why it hasn't been like this all along :-) With Apple Music I just reinvested in iTunes, so I'm definitely keeping iTunes as my media center. Just hoping for a new AppleTV now ;) (and yes: 3.1 is a free upgrade unlike what's said below! I just checked)

Very nice application, I use it a lot for importing my movies. I like how it automates the process of converting (if necessary) and importing the metadata :) Thanks to the developer for actively updating and improving this software.

When I try to import an FLV file it takes me to IMDB.com and asks me to 'accept' some random movie (What's THAT about?) ….and then the import fails. Apparently VideoDrive "makes it easy to add videos to iTunes with or without converting them or losing quality" but it doesn't look like it does anything of the sort. I just want to import an FLV video into iTunes and play it! I'm happy to pay if it works, so throw me a bone here chaps!
