What’s New

Version 3.4.1

iFlicks 3.4 is the second major update to iFlicks 3

After bringing support for the TV and Music apps on macOS Catalina, in the previous updates this one focuses on further refining the experience. One important task for this was adding automatic support for the new wide artwork and fixing some minor bugs along the way.

Works with Catalina, metadata works

This esentially fixed what had broken for me in Catalina..."itunes" integration. Also the metadata works in this version.

I don't think the dev intentionally broke metadata in iflicks 2...sometimes it just happens.

The price is a little steep for what is essentially a maintenance release...but if it gets me through a few years like iflicks 2 did then well worth it.

Intentionally broke iFlicks 2

I love iFlicks, but it appears as though the developer deliberately broke the metadata lookup in iFlicks 2 in order to force people to upgrade to iFlicks 3 (this is just my theory). The latest update on version 2 makes it so the app cannot get metadata or cover art. I purchased version 3, and magically, metadata and cover art lookup seems to work. Unfortunately, the computer I use iFlicks on the most can't run the new version. So, buyer beware ... in buying this software, the developer may choose to intentionally break this version when version 4 rolls out.

UPDATE: In response to the developer ....

The developer blames the TVDB site of not working properly.

I purchased iFlicks, versions 1, 2 and 3, and I have all three working. Whenever I add files to iFlicks 2 now, it doesn't work. Whenever I add files to iFlicks 3, it magically works. IF this really were an issue with TheTVDB, then neither of the apps would work.

When this developer came out with iFlicks 3, there was an update to iFlicks 2. That update made it so iFlicks 2 could no longer get metadata or cover art. My version, which I have on three computers, broke on each machine. When I bought the new version, everything worked again. However, if I use iFlicks 2, it still doesn't work.

The developer may claim it isn't their fault, but the proof is in the fact that version 2 doesn't work any more.

This will be the last time I purchase iFlicks.

Developer Response ,

You are correct, that this is YOUR THEORY and of course completely incorrect. TheTVDB which provides the metadata is currently performing updates and they are having major issues with the api. I can absolutely guarantee you to never ever break any features on propose. This would go against anything I believe in.

Edit: You keep making assumptions without background information. iFlicks 2 uses the older v1 API from TheTVDB, iFlicks 3 the current v2/v3 APIs. While the v2 API has some issues as well right now, the v1 API is almost completely broken right now.
I will not push any iFlicks 2.x updates for now, so hopefully you believe me when it "magically" works again and will update this review.

Additionally, this does not even align with the release of iFlicks 3, as iFlicks 3 was released almost a year ago and not now.

Fantastic..... Until v.3.2/Catalina

This app has been PERFECT for the last 5 years, at least. Everything JUST WORKED. I've used the "iTunes Compatible" presets to convert 1080p and 4k movies flawlessly until iFlicks 3.2 (and/or Catalina?) was released. Now, 1080p movies convert fine using the now-"Apple TV compatible" settings, but 4k movies end up looking like something you'd see from the Predator's viewpoint, but in mostly pink. No settings adjustments seem to work. And it is NOT the source file, as those play fine when I play them straight on non-Apple devices. PLEASE FIX ASAP.

Developer Response ,

Thanks for your feedback. In cases of problems like yours, please contact so we get a chance to fix this.

That being said, please try if the latest 3.2.1 makes a difference for you. Otherwise, please contact support.
