The issue with iFlicks selecting the wrong audio track is a big one. Best would be just to let me pick an audio track when multiple audio tracks found, because now it's a lottery and usually the wrong audio track is selected. Fix it please.

Never notice this issue cause I just leave the original audio track. I take out all of the other audio tracks (if present) with MKVTOOLS first and than use iFlicks: http://www.macupdate.com/app/mac/24872/mkvtools
Because it adds up to the file weight.
I leave the commentaries, etc, of course.

I just wish they would upgrade this with some new features to.

That is the problem if you have more than one track. I have a bunch of films that after iFlicks is done with them have commentary as the main track for some reason.

I would give it a perfect 5 if the preset "Reference File" would work. But no, I have change iTunes to work in 32bit (because thats the recommendation on iFlicks site for this preset to work) and although it makes the small reference file appear and play fine in iTunes, it does not appear or play in my Apple TV 3.
I have to mux (without encoding) all my MKV films with the option "iTunes compatible". Witch is perfect by the way. But it takes more time than a simple "Reference File". Waiting for the next update to "fix" this. But still, a great app that I'm going to by in the next update. ;-)

Great App!!! The best in its genre, with its precise metadata and artworks from "The Movie Database".

But..

1) It's not possible to import a video with its subtitles (.srt and .sub files)

2) It's not possible to import from a DVD (like from a VIDEO_TS folder or an .iso file)

3) It's not possible to specifically choose which fields take from TMDb (for example I would like to deselect to import comments, tagline and stars).

4) It doesn't work on correcting genre and stars when you select multiple movies.

5) It sometimes crashes, specially with .flv video


Fix these things, and this app will be a 5 STAR app!

UPDATE: 2 stars!

I've just bought Elgato Turbo.264 HD and I've discovered that iFlicks doesn't work with Elgato Turbo.264 HD !!

Another thing: iFlicks put the actors in a random order, not in the importance order (how it should be, and how it is already done in The Movie Database)!!

A lot of things to fix here. For the moment I'm looking for other apps..

Nice functionality, however...

Only processes one file at a time, making progress very slow for multi-file batches.

Generates a large amount of inactive RAM when doing batches, and never seems to release it. If I do a TV season for example, I have to restart my Mac afterwards to get my memory back (2.8 GHz i7 with 16 GB RAM).

If you have not updated to 1.4 yet, do yourself a favour - don't. I don't use the encoding functionality so my review is specifically about the metadata function.

I have raved about and recommended iFlicks to a lot of people, it is an excellent app that does metadata search and write quickly and efficiently - except version 1.4.

The switch from AppleScript to Services, while a little painful, would have been more palatable if the new method worked - the simple fact is that it doesn't. In fact with 1.4 the app has become one frustrating to use crippled mess. The selected service will work 1 in 10 times, the app 9 out of 10 times will hang - and that is when trying to add media by the service menu, + button or drag and drop.

It is astounding that the developer has released such a buggy mess to the market. I have downgraded to 1.2.3 because it actually works. I'll think long and hard before upgrading again.

I'm using iFlicks from the start (bought it not stole it) an it was great.

New version is also very good and i haven't encountered any problems. I do only 'iTunes compatible', but it works very well. I also use folder action to import videos and i have some rules set in iFlicks itself.

So far it's perfect record.

Full credit to the developer for the quick update, 1.4.1 is back to working flawlessly.

iFlicks is the best app for iTunes metadata on the Mac, fast, efficient and accurate.

Requirements are incorrect for version 1.4.0!

The developer has stopped support for PowerPC leaving behind those paying customers that helped paved the way for a crap store submission.

Requirements
Mac OS X 10.6 and higher (10.6.8 or higher recommended).
iTunes 10.2 and QuickTime
Perian 1.2.2 is recommended for best video format support.

This is the 20th developer that has rudely abandoned paying customers in their vain hopes of making a quick buck at the MAS.
And this was the last one I will ever pay for software again. I'm through with supporting people that don't give a rat's ass about their customers.

I thought I left this kind of mentality behind when I converted from a Microsoft dominated platform to the Macintosh platform. The tables have turned and it's Apple who's telling everyone how high or when to jump. And the lemmings follow them off the cliff.

Thank you for nothing and for adding the fixes of bugs I paid for into a version I can not use. I own a MBP 2011 but I prefer to use the G5 as a server and a workhorse to avoid slowing my work projects down.

I like this program, it's got some bugs and issues but I use it a lot to import my converted dvd's and tv shows. It would be really nice to see an update for 10.7 Lion and to iron out the wrinkles in it. It's been a year since the last update.

I really want to like this program. It does what it claims pretty well. It's nice to be able to update meta data directly in iTunes and it's auto-downloading of meta data is quite nice. Unfortunately, it is marred by a number of frustrating bugs. The app is constantly freezing (spinning beach ball) or outright crashing for me. I've submitted the first few crash reports to the developer in hopes that they can improve its stability. It also seems to have problems recognizing video types (movie, tv show, etc.) and I'm constantly having to update that manually either in the app or after it exports to iTunes. All in all, this app has great potential but for $23 I'd expect a more stable app.

Isn't iFlicks supposed to embed SubStation Alpha from MKV?!

it should, but it doesn't work! Really annoying!
I'm importing in iTunes all my movies from DVD, extracting them with makeMKV, and, before using iFlicks, I have an MKV with every subtitles I want; after iFlicks, no subs.

Am I doing something wrong or it's an iFlicks problem?

In order for iTunes to transfer the videos to your Apple TV they have to be modified in a special way. Since only a small portion of users requires this, the option is not enabled by default. If you want your videos to be modified, open the iFlicks Preferences and select the QuickTime tab. There you'll find an option labeled "Make compatible with hacked Apple TV". Once you have enabled this option, all videos imported to iTunes using the QuickTime preset will be transfered to your Apple TV.

The option in the preferences is not selectable am i missing something ?

By the way everything else it's a fantastic app.

This option is only available, if "Move Video to a compatible container" is also chosen. Otherwise it wouldn't make any sense to prepare the video, because they would be playable on the Apple TV anyways, or not at all (in case of Reference files).
