If you build you own movie library in iTunes, then you want it to look perfect. Imagine having all of the information about a movie at hand - actors, release date, directors, overview etc. And of course you want nice looking cover arts for your library. MetaMovie brings all this to your movies. Just drop your movie files on the movie list, start the search and then you need but one click to bring all the Information to your movies. The tagged movies look great in iTunes and on your Apple TV. MetaMovie supports the iTunes friendly .mp4 and .m4v file formats (MKV is not supported).

Great App but could be better.
This app does exactly what it says it does, but not without some problems.
Firstly the good points, you simply drag a file in to the window and it will automatically search the web for info about the movie, including the artwork. You can often pick which artwork and info you want to apply, and if its not there you can easily alter the search name till you find it, it found all of my movie titles. It then applies the artwork and info and hey presto you're left with a much fancier looking folder. The info/artwork seems to be applied to the actual file so when looking on my windows pc it also shows the artwork, absolute genius. It can also add chapters to the file, but this does add time to applying the info.
The downside is that you have to drag each file across individually, ok if you only have a few movies, tedious if you have a few hundred to do. It frequently hangs, resulting in going to the activity monitor to quit the application, I did this a few times resulting in the file being left unreadable/watchable, so don't be tempted to quit the program just be patient. It can take anything from 45sec to 4mins to do each movie; average will be about 1min 15 sec.
Hope this has helped.
App has been running on MacBook Pro, with 30 meg+ broadband.
Just the app I was looking for to be able to edit the ID tag on my movie collection.
I also add my own thumbnail pic if I’m not happy with the one from the search selection that comes up in the search.
The app does need to access the internet to search it’s database.
Very easy to use.
