Metax For Mac

MetaX saves you a lot of time and typing by tagging your movie collection in a completely automated way, so that they're easier to manage and look great in your movie manager such as iTunes. MetaX ensures that your movies are tagged correctly so that iTunes can retrieve the correct cover art for your movies and TV shows. MetaX for Windows, port of MetaX, makes it easy to tag your movies with cover art, descriptions, artists and all the other fields that will display in iTunes/FrontRow/Apple TV. It automatically gets data from sources like Amazon, tagChimp, TVDB and TMDB. You can tag movies or entire seasons of TV Shows with just a few mouse clicks. By default, the app opens a dialog box and ask you to select the DVD mounted on your Mac. Rodney Kerstetter’s free MetaX is designed for that purpose.


MetaZ is an mp4 meta-data editor for OS X.
It started its life when another great meta-data editor MetaX stopped gettingupdated, some of the web-services it used changed in ways that brokefunctionality and it had some really anoying (to us at least) little missingthings like no proper window resizing. This lead to us starting MetaZ as areimplementation of MetaX with a few ideas of our own sprinkled in there.

For bugs and feature requests you can use our issue tracker at github

We have created some extra resources and small plugins that were deemed tosmall or silly to be included with the main program.

The classic moo from MetaX is finally available via a small MetaZ plugin youcan download from here.To install it simply unpack the zip file and drop the unpacked script onto theMetaZ dock icon.

Contribution steps

We follow GitHub flow, as a workflow. Basically:

  • Create a feature branch in your fork
  • Make your change with documentation as appropriate
  • Please run and test a release build before submitting a pull request!
  • Submit a pull request from your branch
  • Someone with commit access will review the code and merge it. This applies even if you also have commit access.

Metax Tagger

Going forward we will follow rubinius’leadand once you have one pull request accepted into MetaZ, we will add you to ateam that has push+pull access. Basically you will get a big green mergebutton on other people’s pull requests, and you will be able to commit thosepull requests to the griff/metaz master branch.

This also means that you could push your commits directly togriff/metaz without going through a pull request. We ask that you not dothis, however, so that any code on master has been reviewed. This does not applyto branches other than master; if there is long-term collaboration happening,create a feature branch and feel free to push directly to that (but have commits reviewed before merging that branch into master).
