Metadata for video content
Tags: iTunes Store | MetaData
Added On: 27th Jul 08
Unlike for audio content editing metadatas in iTunes is very limited for video content. You can’t enter a description nor is any of the information actually saved inside the file itself which makes readding it to a pain. Previously mentioned AtomicParsley solves all these problems, but most people don’t like the idea of editing maybe hundreds of files on the command line. On Macs the problem has been solved by the power tool Lostify, but on windows there are only some very limited guis for AtomicParsley.
Because of this I created my own interface which covers almost everything Lostify can do. The only two exceptions are the genre flag (Only important to Movies, while Lostify is mostly a tv show tagger. However you can set it from inside iTunes) and the actor/director informations which only matters for AppleTV users. It also supports Templates for Shows or Movies, so you can easily load the correct metadata and artwork of your episodes from one of the existing template files instead of having to type everything yourself (I uploaded a demo template for the first season of LOST here).
You can download the application here.
