Add your video collection to iTunes with one click.

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.

We always publish release notes on our website and in the inline VideoDrive update mechanism. We have never released any update without accompanying notes. We are not responsible for the content of MacUpdate. MacUpdate automatically detects when we release a new version and updates its site. We have noted that on a regular basis the release notes are not included automatically. If we notice this, we manually update the MacUpdate listing. Please view the VideoDrive website (www.aroona.net) for any official news on our 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.

Okay, now after two weeks there actually is a version 3.7.02. Surprising, that MU can be that far ahead.

Since iDentify has stopped working I am still searching for a metadata replacement. Can you recommend this? I don't need to transcode, just batch edit TV and movie files. I went to read reviews in the AppStore but it is not there, which sort of concerns me.

@WilloSF, VideoDrive 3 is not available in the Mac App Store, and never will because it does not comply with the strict Sandboxing rules imposed by Apple as it manipulates your iTunes Library and uses third party components such as HandBrake. I advice you to download our software for free and test it before consider buying.

Hi, if you purchase Videodrive on MacUpdate, make sure to use the email address provided by MacUpdate and not your own email address. That should do it.

Nice update to the interface with lighter colours and cleaner icons. This one fits macOS Sierra much better.

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.

How do you make it automatically sync with your iPhone?

To automatically sync videos with iPhone or iPad, take these steps (you only need to do this once):

1) make sure your iOS device is set up properly in iTunes: either connect it with a cable or allow for Wifi sync)
2) specify in iTunes which movies or TV shows to sync with your iOS device. For instance, the 5 most recent tv show episodes, all movies added to the VideoDrive playlist, ...
3) in VideoDrive, click on the iTunes tab on the main screen and check the option "After finishing sync iTunes with devices".

Now, whenever you add new videos to iTunes with VideoDrive, a sync will be initiated and your new movies and TV shows (that match whatever you specified in step 2) will be immediately copied to your device.

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.

Just ripped over 200 titles off of DVD's that a friend had and put them in iTunes. No need for other software to import. The interface changes little by little as do most interfaces of apps over time. Not that confusing, but yes iTunes tries to master TV, Music, Radio, Movies, etc and could be broken up but then we would have to deal with two new interfaces and learn them.
