I have written a metadata program for OS X. You can download MovieMetaX
from my website. It requires OS X 10.7 Lion or better.
I put most of my effort into the interface. MovieMetaX is meant for the casual video entertainment consumer like me, who doesn't need to do a lot of automated processing of hundreds of metadata files. I only ever need to process one movie or a dozen episodes at a time, so I wrote this for myself.
The way it works: you just drop a video file on the app, it reads the filename to determine the title and perhaps the year or episode number, and then it queries one of three databases: TheTVdb.com, TheMovieDb.org
, and/or OMDbAPI.org
. Then you choose the correct episode if necessary and click the save button to save a PyTivo metadata file.
Over time, I could add much more functionality, but I have doubts about the necessity for that. How many Mac users need to use this? Do they care? I guess I'll find out.
Please note that this is the first OS X app I have ever shared with people, and I don't know what sort of bug reports to expect. Please be kind.
Documentation is very sparse (just the one page on my website), but I'll add to it if there is any interest.
