MetaZ1.0.beta-116

10 July 2020

MP4 metadata editor (Beta).

Overview

MetaZ is an MP4 metadata editor for OS X.

It started its life when another great metadata editor, MetaX, stopped getting updated. Some of the web services it used changed in ways that broke functionality and it had some really annoying (to us at least) little missing things like no proper window resizing. This lead to us starting MetaZ as a reimplementation of MetaX with a few ideas of our own sprinkled in there.

What's new in MetaZ

Version 1.0.beta-116:
  • Merge pull request from jmcintyre/develop
  • Revert "Don't let Carthage copy the Sparkle.framework (breaks XCode 11)"

So, in VLC, when opening the Media Information window, there is a field 'Description'. But this field does not appear to map to either the 'Short Description' or 'Long Description' fields in MetaZ or visa versa. Using Subler, the field in VLC called Description, actually has the header 'Comment', but that 'field' doesn't show up in MetaZ either.

This Comment field shows up in Plex, VLC and other apps, so the inability of MetaZ to be even recognize it, let alone edit it, is a shortcoming

Nice editor. I needed something to fix a tag in a movie for Plex that I suspected was embedded, and this did the trick!

Since I couldn't figure out how to use it, I will refrain from rating it... yet. But it is loaded with some bad signs. --No basic help file. --No obvious online documentation. --Does not successfully connect to anything for me but TagChimp, which is the pig-pile of the metadata world (filled with multiple entries with all sorts of differing errors for most titles). Looking for something to supplement missing (actual) metadata editing in Subler, but this isn't it.

I loved MeaX and have been using for years. Seeing this was an upgrade to one of my favorite tools, of course I tried it. It totally blew all of my files up. Too bad - really wanted it to work.

Absolutely horrible "upgrade" of meta x. Riddled with bugs and unworkable issues. Yes, they managed to include the new 'movies' category but most everything else is broken. Why doesn;t someone make a non-freeware version that works? I would gladly pay $10.

MetaZ comes with four metadata lookup plugins installed, but github shows there are two additional plugins: Amazon and IMDB. How do I get and install those two additional plugins?

Can't add any cover art in 1.0a9. Seems to be fixed in the code - waiting for another update I guess.

Was looking for something to help me tag my library of Handbrake ripped TV Shows and Movies. This worked wonderfully in tagging my movies, a few times though it would randomly stop searching for stuff requiring a reboot or something. I started to tag TV shows and midway through tagging a season, the search feature just stopped working and did not return search results anymore. Guess I can't complain because it's free, but having a functional search feature would be nice. I was using the same search term as before so I am not sure as to why it would just randomly stop showing the same results. Off to give Vidalin a shot.

This is a great piece of software. It makes the process looks so simple. I'm glad I can organize my video files properly now.

Great software. And glad to see that people took up the task off reanimating the already dead metax. Thanks for that. I have a problem with the date though. Every date I enter comes out one day earlier. I saw a ticket for that in the ticketsystem but 1.0a8 is still broken.

How are you supposed to use the Plugins? I see Amazon and TagChimp, but no way to configure them from the GUI.... thanks

Simple but helpful little app that is really needed if you have a Western Digital media player or anything that can play .mp4 files. You will end up with a library with integrated cover art, which is both pleasant and simple.

Nice upgrade from MetaX. MetaZ seems to find artwork for Movies and TV shows more reliably than MetaX, and seems to write files more quickly.
