Contrary to its what its name suggests, this app handles many tasks: mkv to m4v conversion, subtitle export (as srt) and meta tagging. It does take some effort to get it running on the latest versions of OS X (visit the website for info) and it lacks batch features, but I consider it essential.

I needed to fix some stubbornly unco-operative subtitles.

It took a bit of hit and miss but I discovered the only method that worked was saving to .m4v and Forcing All Samples subtitles.

Then I opened the .m4v file in QT 7 Pro and resaved it as a self-contained .mov.

Bit round about but it was the only thing that worked.

First, I was so relieved to find Subler. I use both MKV and MP4 for different reasons, and until now I could not do much about thumbnails, covers, and/or metadata for MP4. It is exceptional... but not as good as the sound/music metadata editors (and same for MKV) that I use... and I am speaking of actual "editors".

Unlike what is claimed on the developer's websites, this is not a metadata "editor." Importing metadata makes it a... well, metadata "importer"... not "editor." And such a shame that it is not otherwise.

I have found both TVDB and iTunes have typos, errata, and outright errors now and then in the metadata they distribute. In addition, iTunes has the worst thumbs, covers, and screens I have seen across the internet. iTunes also puts data into fields where it does not belong by media type.

Lack of actual editing combined with mislabeling the ability to do so was frustrating, because I expected actual editing capability when I downloaded Subler. But it is far better in what it does than most comparable applications in the Mac world.

What you are saying is not true, you can add and edit every tag manually.

Yes, I more recently stumbled onto (into) the editing capability you mention. It was not as intuitive as what I am used to in such programs as MetaZ.

Subler does slightly better in searching of metadata, but MetaZ has a better editing environment able to mix from different meta from more sources. The two actually do alright to everything tag in file for all the various ways in which I use my media.

JCH2 what are you using for intuitive metadata editing of mkvs? I am aware of mkvtoolnix but the concept of that is a little beyond me. Works great for muxing but not for editing metadata imo. So I'd be curious to know what you are using.

Hi M.J.; as implied / stated, I do use MetaZ and MKVToolnix as well. So far, those two along with Subler do the job as needed... adequately.

I would say that Subler is too "mac" oriented in its (mis)use of certain metadata fields to match the same in iTunes, but that would be obvious for around here. (I live / work / play in multiplatorm world when I can.)

I am still on the hunt for a good MD editor that can handle all "containers" such as mp3, mp4, mkv, etc. Admittedly, I may be dreaming in that quest.

It solved my strange crash and no response issues in multiple versions that had worked until an update.
Also if it could be updated to an 64bit program

I've had "iffy" luck with Subler. I followed the Directions to the Letter, and the ap runs the length of the Progress Bar and then just stops.

I'm on an old Intel 2.8 GHz Quad-Core Xeon in Snow Leopard.

What a great tool and although it's not yet 64bit once that happens along with a few more tweaks, I can't see what else there is to want!!!

Thanks!

Also useful for editing metadata of non-DRM'ed m4a purchases from the iTunes store.

Awesome app to add .srt subtitles to m4v file, to add others audios/chapters tracks or to rename the tracks. Usefull to mux a mkv file to m4v without re-encoding.

I recently discovered the metadata feature, which is quite cool to retrieve metadata and iTunes Artwork to have a proper video file.

Found this to be difficult and unreliable. Loaded my .mp4 file, then Subler automatically found the .srt file and loaded that as well. But no clear menu choice to begin conversion. Tried clicking several of the buttons in the window, nothing begins muxing.

Ridiculous. Even for free, this is a bad value.

I've not been using Mac for long but using this program was simple. The export button is at the top right of the window (like the sharing icon). You then go to window and open the queue and start.

I’m curious — why has Subler grown between versions 0.18 and 0.19 from 12.5 MB to 30.5 MB?

The best tagger.

However since v0.24, I'm unable to tag Rating as "USA movie: Unrated". After saving, it will always end up as "Unknown movie & TV: Unknown".

Bug?
