This is an excellent little program which works unobtrusively and integrates well with Handbrake, my video convertor of choice, when batch and single converting video formats and brings metadata to my conversions

My process is simple, I rip DVDs using Ripit, then use Handbrake to convert to my preferred format. Before converting ensure you set up Handbrake preferences to use Identify. That way it will open automatically upon conversion and start to trawl the usual websites, primarily IMDB, for the appropriate metadata and artwork. It then automatically adds to iTunes. Couldn't be simpler.

This works better than MetaX and feels more integrated, as it should, as it is a paid for app and whilst MetaX never really let me down it did come up with strange matches every now and again. So long as you have labelled the conversion with the right details Identify almost always finds the right detail.

I am particularly impressed with TV shows, I label the conversion thus: TV Series title, S1 Ep1 and so on, with S1 meaning season 1 and Ep1 as Episode 1, Identify almost always finds the right show, series and episode. Fantastic time saver.

Occasionally Identify won't find the movie title, usually foreign movies, by opening up the movie using edit and simply copying in the IMDB unique code its sorted and the metadata of the original movie is updated.

Overall, well worth the price for ease of use and just for doing its job and doing it well.
