*** Use Video File List to find out more about your movie files, detect poor quality content, and easily clean up your movie archive. ***

Main Features
* Detect poor quality content in your movie library
* Sort and filter all your movie files based on many properties like runtime, resolution, video format, fps, tags, etc.
* Can identify and classify up to 500 movie files per minute on a fast Mac
* Supports most common movie formats on Macs
* Export and print the list
* HEVC encoder for converting mp4/mov/mpeg files: optimise your files using HEVC hardware encoding (requires macOS 10.13 or later)

Just drag and drop a bunch of files and/or folders on the application icon or directly in the main window. Video File List will then search for valid movie files and display them in the list.

Pick one or several filters from the left sidebar to limit the list to specific files/formats or sort the list by any of the columns e.g. to find duplicate candidates.

Files from the list can then either be
* deleted
* revealed in the Finder
* played/opened in an external video player
* encode to HEVC (requires macOS 10.13, only works for mp4/mpeg/mov files)

Great app, greater developers

I've been using this app at work to help me pull technical metadata for our archives inventory list, and this app is perfect for the task. Or will be, soon -- the limited ProRes support added in this last update still doesn't recognize the many varieties of ProRes files we have in our inventory.

But what's really impressed me is the responsiveness of the developers to the multiple inquiries I've sent them about different things. They've been extremely friendly and helpful.

Super Useful Utility

This utility has one single purpose lets you find videos based on metadata. It helped me find videos hidden in folders I didn't even know about :-) I love how fast and intuitive the UI is.

Fills a missing gap in macOS

While having to sort though a lot of video media, I learned that macOS Spotlight doesn’t index the video resolution as searchable criteria in the Finder (even though the “Info” window in macOS will display this metadata..).

This app fills that void nicely by searching a folder (of volume) and returning the metadata I needed.

A few things missing from the app:

1. The ability to save a search from within the app and re-load later.
2. The ability to export the search as a Finder “smart search”
3. The ability to export the search results to Excel or comma delimited format (not just .txt)
