Regretfully the current version no longer works in Snow Leopard; it crashes momentarily after launch.

This is by far the easiest app to add Chapters to iPod compliant mp4 files. However, normally QuickTime ignores the Chapter markers if the filename is not .m4v but QuickTime strangely recognise this app's Chapters no matter the filename extension is .mp4 or .m4v. I'm not sure if that's a good thing, so I make sure I rename accordingly.

One major quirk is iTunes cannot add the Album Artwork to mp4 files created by this app. I overcome it by re-exporting the file in QuickTime (using mpeg4 with "pass-thru" video & audio). The newly exported mp4 is now QuickTime compliant and supports Album Cover. Needless to say, the file extension must be .m4v for QuickTime to show the chapter selector.

All the above shortcomings are resolved in the just released version 3.7.

Amazing.

I wish I could call up SimpleMovieX directly within iTunes simply by highlighting a movie I want to edit (primarily to add chapter markers) and right-click. Maybe someone can write an iTunes Script for it.

Oh, the "i" button still calls up a screen that show non-English characters as garbage text, although otherwise non-English meta are preserved.

It seems version 1.4.3 is not compatible with Leopard. A message to the effect "You are not a root user" showed up when I tried to run AppleJack.

Let's hope an updated version is released soon.

I've been using this since its incarnation eons ago.

It just works...

... for free too.

Please write useful & unique apps instead of wasting everyone's resources on 2nd class clones.

I don't get the joke.

I did waste time installing & uninstalling it after just a test run.

AppleJack was the *only* app I miss dearly ever since I acquired an Intel Mac in April 2006.

I'm sooooo happy the wait is over!

Question: Should I stick to the previous PowerPC-only version for my old Macs?

In case anyone is wondering...

Version 1.1.4 works great in Tiger 10.4.8, QuickTime 7.1.3, and in my Intel iMac.

But I look forward to a universal version. Really.

As a habit (for years now) I run "Automation" once a week. 2 days ago my 2012 iMac (10.8.5) could not boot up after running Automation. I had to re-install Mountain Lion, which fortunately restored the iMac to prior-condition without losing anything.

Thinking it was an isolated incident and perhaps my iMac was at fault, I ran "Automation" on my 2010 MacBook Pro (10.8.5). Regretfully exactly the same thing happened.

I searched and no one seem to encounter the same issue... but having it happened on both my Mac seems unlikely I'm the only one experiencing it.
