HD Tag

By Empoc, LLC

Open the Mac App Store to buy and download apps.


With the click of a button, you can add an HD tag to multiple video files.

The HD tag, if set, is read by iTunes and will place a little HD icon next to your video file to indicate that the resolution is HD.

There are other apps out there that allow you to tag your videos with the HD tag but none so far that I've found that allow you to tag multiple files at once.

I originally wrote this app for my own personal use and it came in handy when I was digitally storing all of my TV Shows and needed to tag the HD ones with the HD tag so that iTunes would display the HD icon.

HD Tag will save you countless hours, maybe even days, depending on the amount of files you need to tag.

Finally, Some One Does What Apple Won't. Thank You!

I've been waiting for the ability to tag my movies as HD ever since i got an Apple TV over two years ago. I use MeTax for importing my movies but sadly it does not have the ability to add the HD tag. People mention a program called Subler that will do the HD tags but its a nightmare to use. This works great because I don't have to reimport any movies or retag them. I've put several requests in to Apple to add the ability to HD tag movies within iTunes but obviously nothing has happened yet. Seems so easy and a request that many users would have. I have over a thousand Movies and TV shows that only took me a couple of hours yesterday to HD tag the appropriate files. The HD tag shows up in iTunes and Apple TV just fine now. Just wanted to thank you and advise anyone who's looking for a way to HD tag their files, this is the way to go.

Actually, it will work

Initially I thought this app didn't work, but after contacting their tech support, I realize it does, just not within iTunes. You have to add the tag TO THE VIDEO FILE using Finder, and then either add it to iTunes (if it is a new video), or find the video file and add it (if it is already in iTunes). If the file is already in iTunes, you can play the file to update the entry or delete it from iTunes (but DON'T add it to the trash) and re-add it for the HD tag to show up. Could be a little more user-friendly, but it gets the job done. And thumbs up to their tech support, who replied within a couple of hours.

It does exactly what it says

It does exactly what the write up says it should do.

I’d imagine the people saying it’s garbage aren’t following the directions.

In your iTunes directory, mark the .m4v file, mp4 file or whatever as HD using this applette.
Delete the movie from iTunes but do NOT delete the file
Import the movie back into iTunes.

It will be marked HD now.
