iDentify is an OS X application for tagging iTunes compatible MP4 video files.
Normally, when you convert a video file to the format used by iOS devices such as the iPad, iPod, iPhone or AppleTV, all the information about the video is missing! The only thing you see is the name of the file where the title of the video should be! Enter iDentify!
iDentify looks at the name of files as they are added to it. Based on the name of the file, iDentify determines wether it is a TV Show or movie based on common naming conventions. From the file name, a lot of information can be gleaned, such as movie title, show name, season number, episode number, year of release, and imdb code. iDentify can then automatically look on The TVDB, The Movie DB, and tagChimp to gather more information about the title, such as description, rating, chapter names and more! iDentify also inspects the file and can automatically turn on the HD flag on the movie when the resolution of the file goes above a set minimum!
iDentify not finding info about your video? Fixing it is easy! Simply edit the movie title or show name to match that found on theMovieDB.org, or theTVDB.com (respectively) and click rescan!
Want to change the tags of multiple files in one fell swoop? No problem! Add the files to iDentify, select all the ones you want to edit from the list, and click edit. All changes you make are now applied to all selected files!
When you are done, just click "Process Files" to write the new information to your files, and when iDentify is done, you are ready to add your videos to iTunes!
This is the full (registered) version of iDentify. It includes features like automatic file renaming, auto add to iTunes, the ability to automatically process files when they are added and more.
What's New in Version 551
Fixes for TVDB lookups
Removed tagChimp Support, as the service closed.
Works well but needs a little work
Works well for movies but could use a few tweaks for TV content. The last few versions of iTunes require that TV shows have the show name in the ALBUM field to display properley in ITunes. It’s annying to have to manually add this information every time. It would also be nice if the app used square TV art on TV shows so that the art displays correctly on apple TV or IOS devices. Otherwise it works great.
UPDATE the 1-8-15 update has still not fixed the not populating the ALBUM field for TV shows or square art issues. It’s not a huge deal but its annoying to have to do it manually for every file. Hopefully the next update will fix these issues.
Version 551 Back On Track!!
Since I had to rate the Version 545 bad for not working, I wanted to make sure to come back in and rate this app VERY HIGHLY now that it’s functioning again!!! I’ve been using it since before the App Store existed and continue to use it now. Exactly what I want and need for tagging shows and videos before dropping them in iTunes!!
Tag Chimp is a Great App
This app has improved my personal iTunes Library so much I can begin to tell you.
It’s the easiest way to add tags to your media files on a Mac.
Updates keep Identify running the way it should.
If we ever get a version 3, I will upgrade immediately.
I’d like to thank Justin for all his fine work on this app.
