Clipstart1.5

03 July 2012

Manage your home movie/clips collection.

Overview

Clipstart complements your photo application to give you a place that is designed for home movies. Import your videos, tag, search, and upload with one click to Flickr, Vimeo, YouTube, and Twitter. You can even quickly upload a trimmed portion of a movie without needing to save a new copy. If you have dozens or hundreds of short videos from a Flip or video camera, Clipstart provides the workflow to finally make sense of them.

What's new in Clipstart

Version 1.5:
  • Adds a new Consolidate command for finding duplicates in your library, or adding files that aren't yet managed by Clipstart
  • New AppleScript support for uploading
  • Performance improvements
  • Bug fixes

I like it, but it crashes at the end of playing EVERY clip without explanation or any catalyst that I can discern. Also, I wish it did video conversions. You don't even have to add much code, just hook it into the QuickTime encoding framework. That would make it really useful and worth paying for. Right now it's just a nice way of organizing my disparately-filed home movies (or it would be if it didn't constantly crash), but it's not special enough to pay for -- especially at $29! And it has no preferences for customizing anything, except for account info for uploading to Flickr, etc. I have over 400 short videos I took of my children with 5 different digital cameras (not camcorders), and we love to watch them frequently. But even that's not enough to convince me to shell out 30 bills just to herd them all into one app. But make that app capable of manipulating those clips and I'll gladly fork over $30, but no more than that. Nice, but not quite ready for prime time. (2.4 GHz Core2Duo Unibody 13" MacBook running 10.6.2 with 4 GB of RAM)

I've been looking for a way to catalogue the thousands of video clips I've shot over the years, from crappy little things filmed on old mobile phones right up to high-def clips shot on a compact camera. Though itunes & iphoto and supposedly, iMovie can handle films, none fo them are up to the task of cataloguing them correctly. iLife really needs a new program to deal with this kind of thing, or give iMovie the same library handling as iPhoto has for movies. In the mean time - Clipstart is not too bad - it's really very basic and a little anaemic on features but with a great deal of polish could really become useful. So far, apart from a few stalls, and after a great deal of looking, it's the best thing I've found for the job.

In addition to my previous comments, I've noticed another annoying behavior of this app. As soon as you startup ClipStart, it calls YouTube to obtain your "categories". I did not witness this behavior using Little Snitch, rather I started ClipStart when my WiFi was off, and then I got an error message that it "could not find your YouTube categories". Mr./Ms. Developer, in case you hadn't noticed, people are getting pretty peeved about applications that constantly send our information to third party corporations (or worse) over the net without our knowledge or approval. So your app should not be coded to call out all over the internet before it even knows whether it's necessary. It should first check my YouTube preferences in ClipStart to see if I want it to upload videos there before trying to send my info to the company (and probably the other 3 video services it can upload to)! I mean, why did you even include individual preferences for each video service if you coded the app to ignore them and call those companies first and THEN check the prefs? I guess ClipStart is the wrong app for me anyway. I was considering it simply to organize my home videos because its advertising claimed it would "complement your photo application to give you a place that is designed for home movies." But it seems our culture's rampant exhibitionism won out during the coding process, because its YouTube uploading capability dominates the app, not its home video management features. Of course, due to its constant crashing, pointless callouts, and mislabeled role, I have abandoned it.
