MPAA ratings not added (and other questions)

Post  kevmacmills on Sun Feb 24, 2013 4:25 am

I am currently evaluating VideoDrive and have a few issues that are preventing me from purchasing it:

1. The episode naming for TV shows is good, but why is the episode number placed in the show name? e.g. "17 - Test the Store" is the final name for "The Office (US) Season 8, Episode 17". Personally, I don't think the episode number belongs in the show's title since it is handled elsewhere in the metadata. Is there a way to control this?

2. The MPAA rating for TV shows doesn't get added to the metadata (TV-14, TV-MA, etc). This is a BIG deal for me. iFlicks does this and I need this to keep my kids from accessing shows that I am not yet ready for them to see!

3. File deletion. I don't have "Move original video files to trash..." checked, nor do I have any deletion option selected, yet after the conversion and addition to iTunes my original file is gone! The first file I tested with I dragged from my NAS share and it is now gone forever! I've tried 3 different files so far and each time the original file is deleted after it is added to my iTunes library.

In my evaluation I've tried iFlicks and the show/movie naming seems a bit better (more complete info seems to be added) and the MPAA rating is included properly. I also really like iFlicks' rules - I can use that to fix up oddly named shows or filenames that I know will mess up the searching algorithms. However, this project seems much more active and I love the documentation and the clarity of the indicator lights in the UI. Hopefully someone can help me with these issues as I always like to contribute to authors who take the time to write great software!

Thanks!

Well, hey look at that: "Add episode label and numbering in episode names" is an checkable option. So, great - that takes care of my first issue. If anyone has input on my other issues/questions, that'd be swell. Thanks!
