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-49:
  • Fix tokens in .travis-ci.yml
  • Write to log when fetching TheTVDB series fails
  • Add all scripts to Xcode
  • Make new encryption key
  • Merge branch ‘better-load-errors’ into develop
  • Show the actual read error from AtomicParsley
  • Updated xib file version

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.

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

Have you gone to IMDB?
They have posters for most shows. If you can not simply drag them to your desktop do a screen snap using command shift 4 - drag over area.

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.

Okay, started to figure it our in opening an MP4 (duh). Does not find metadata for half the episodes of the new prime time shows I watch. Chapter editor is worthless, does not correctly read the number or duration of entries in a chapter file... and does not let you edit the duration of the entered chapters. Serious work is needed here, since I know the chapter file works as is and is produced correctly by Subler. More later perhaps.

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.

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?
