MetaX lets you tag Your Movies To Look Perfect in iTunes, Apple TV or other Media Players- When you want your movies to look as good as those purchased from iTunes, with cover art, descriptions, ratings, actors and more, you NEED MetaX. With only a mouse click or two, MetaX will scour all the major sources of movie and TV information on the web: TVDB, TheMovieDB, Amazon, and tagChimp, as well as IMDB and Yahoo posters and display the information. You can select from multiple entries to get just the look you want, then quickly write the tags into the file so that it shows up in iTunes, Apple TV or whatever media play you use, just like it would if you had purchased the movie from iTunes. MetaX supports MP4, M4V, MOV, AVI, MKV and WMV files.

Version 2.71
There is a new feature on the Help Menu, Manage Shortcuts. Selecting this will launch an app that will create a File Explorer shortcut, Open with MetaX. You will need to allow this app to run as admin for it to work. Please let me know if you find any issues with it.

There are major changes to allow tagging larger numbers of files. To enable this, you must enable the /VM switch. Then after an entry is tagged, it is removed from the write queue. I have been able to tag over 300 (untagged) files at once using this. Note, trying to open a large number of tagged (with cover art) files will still run MetaX out of virtual memory, but it will provide a message to that affect and stop trying to open files.
