Mp4Autotag for Mac

CNET Editors' review

MP4Autotag streamlines the process of tagging MP4 videos on your Mac so you can upload them to video sites -- with tags and other metadata ready to go. It also provides valuable tagging information for display on mobile devices if you are loading up your MP4-compatible tablet, phone, or media player with videos for a long trip or study.

MP4Autotag downloads directly from the developer, allowing you to start it right away, though you'll need to add a security exception to open it in Mountain Lion. After doing so, you can drag and drop an MP4 video to the system and it will attempt to automatically look up the video in thetvdb.com or themoviedb.org. All tags will be dropped to the video if a match is found. If there is no match, you can attach new images, change results, add tags, or rename meta tags or file names from within the interface. Images can also be pulled from the iTunes store if you have personal videos you've copied.

MP4Autotag is a useful piece of software for anyone with large video collections from before modern online directories -- meaning their tags are out of date, missing, or inaccurate. At the same time, you can add tags to your own personal videos just as easily with the streamlined interface provided in the app. It's not a perfect MP4 editing app, but for metadata editing, it works quite well.

    "A good editor until it loses files"

    November 23, 2013  |   By jerry7171

    Version: Mp4Autotag 0.1.5

    Pros

    Free.

    Usually matches files in the majority of instances.

    When it finds a match, it writes all the important information to the file and inserts matching artwork.

    Mostly fast.

    It has a very simple interface that is obvious and easy to use -- there is not a complicated layout with many options to tailor.

    The resulting edits create a file that iTunes will immediately recognize and import without any complaint.

    Cons

    It isn't completely autonomous.

    Sometimes it can't find the information due to a file name not being precise to the dot.

    Sometimes without any obvious reason, it'll take up to a minute or two just to add tags and artwork to a file but then perform the same actions for the next file in under a few seconds.

    It can be wildly inconsistent. I don't know if this is more to do with the sources of information or a quirk of the software.

    Worst of all, it LOSES a file after being edited. In rare instances, a movie that has been tagged and saved simply ceases to exist. A thorough search inside the Mac Pro and the external HD where the file originally lived turns up nothing and I'm losing my patience as some of the lost movies are very hard to find anywhere now.

    Summary

    This software is visually easy on the eyes and mostly delivers on its promise of taking a lot of the grunt work out of tagging and organizing any video libraries. However, it does sometimes need to be taken by the hand and guided along.

    For example, the movie "Xanadu" turned up nothing, but as soon as I renamed it "Xanadu (1980)" it finally found the correct information. The same was true of James Cameron's "Titanic." I was forced to rename the file "Titanic (1997)" to help the software figure out what it was dealing with.

    But in other instances, I didn't have to go so far as to rename a file.

    It becomes even trickier with TV series.

    All of this is a minor quibble until the software goes through to motions of tagging and adding artwork to a movie file, only then to seemingly erase it out of existence after I hit "Save!"

    I'm still looking everywhere I can think of to attempt to recover the missing videos. It seems to happen with increasing frequency to the point that I'm having some serious remorse about using this software.
