Are all your videos hidden in a bunch of folders or stored haphazardly in the cloud? Wouldn’t you rather they were all as easy to sort and locate as your iTunes content, with metadata like movie posters and cast credits?
Using iFlicks 2, you can easily import your video collection into iTunes. This gives you the ability to watch your third-party videos directly in iTunes or transfer them to your Apple TV, iPad, iPod or iPhone. On top of that, iFlicks downloads metadata (information or visuals related to your videos) and lets you tweak the metadata manually. Managing your video collection in iTunes has never been this easy!
What sets iFlicks apart from most of the competition? This easy-to-use tool automatically adds the most complete metadata available for TV episodes and movies, pulling information from The Movie Database and Online TV Database. This happens automatically in almost all cases, but can be adjusted — by hand or by setting up smart rules to automate the process.
Another big advantage is that iFlicks only encodes videos when required (or desired by the user). In all other cases, the video and audio streams are passed through to m4v containers, which makes for blazing-fast performance.
While quite simple for beginners to understand, the latest version of the software (iFlicks 2.2) is also very powerful and customizable for power users. Watch folders, rules and AppleScript allow users to completely automate and customize processing of their videos, taking the sting out of repetitive tasks
iFlicks 2 processes most common video file types, like H.264 and DivX, extremely quickly, and supports most common video containers like .mp4, .mkv and .avi. It delivers high-quality encoding and offers support for multiple audio tracks and subtitles. Handy presets let you optimize videos for display on a particular Apple device (iPhone, iPad, Apple TV or iPod touch).
Additional features include clever parsing of file names for great automatic detection of the correct titles of movies and TV shows, and very fast pass-through of H.264 streams from other containers to m4v/mp4.
iFlicks 2, which works with OS X 10.8.3 or later, makes it all possible with an intuitive and beautiful user interface. It makes wrangling your video library easier than ever.
The software is on sale for $18.99, a 25 percent discount off the usual $24.99 price, through the end of April. You can download iFlicks 2 now from the Mac App store.
