iDentify 2: more than a dream

more than a dream, it is almost here!
Yes, there is still a fair chunk of work to do, but the core functionality is here.
I threw together a little screencast preview of iDentify 2 in it’s current state, which you can download here.

    WOW! Looking great man! Really excited about the new version! I already love the current version, but the new version is a lot cooler than I was expecting even!

    If you need any beta testers, then I’m happy to put it through its paces!

    Just took a look at the video of iDentify 2. I can’t wait til its released.

    Looks great. Love how its very minimal and looks like it gets data from a variety of sources. Will be eagerly awaiting the release.

      It gets its info from the TVDB, the TMDB, and tagChimp. The IMDB is no more, as we apparently can not scrape their pages legally. However, the TMDB allows lookups via the imdb code.

      The TMDB has better quality info/ posters, etc anyways…. The IMDB just has more.

      Internationalization won’t be in the initial release, but I will try to include it as time goes on. Thanks for the offer.

    Looks very good, and especially love the ability to browse certain sub functions (e.g. artwork) from multiple sources. Hope eventually this capability works its way to the other meta data tabs.

    I also appreciate that you may have built a framework to eventually add in support for other data like subtitle streams. This would be perfect, as there are multiple subtitle repositories you could allow the user to browse and select from (similar to FileBot but more user friendly). I know that’s for the future, so just release this one ASAP!

    One question, in the current Identify the code doesn’t update capitalisation in the meta data. For example, if the file is called “zombieland” then the downloaded meta data says “Zombieland” but the meta data stored in the file says “zombieland”. Is that behavior fixed in your new release?

      In short, yes. When identify 2 does a search, it replaces every tag detected in the file name with the tags gathered from the source site(s). I don’t know if I will add in the ability to select other data from other sources, though. In fact, I rather doubt it. I might, however, consider subtitles for a future release.

    Looks awesome. Can’t wait. One suggestion. In other tagging programs, I’ve carefully entered titles, descriptions, cast, etc., but during writing, the app crashes and I lose all the tags I have entered (big problem when I have 28 episodes of a TV show to tag–and have carefully edited the long description to fit in the short description field). My suggestion would be for the App to write all the tags to a temp file (first) in case of a crash or computer problem. That way the data isn’t lost. (like when Handbrake crashes and you reopen it, you have the option of reloading the queue that was in progress, or clearing it).

      IDentify 2 is different from… that other program which shall remain unnamed… that I have had similar expereiences with. I aim for no crashes. That said, the onbly time I’ve experienced crashes with identify thus far were during the lookup phase when files are added, which are crashes that can be quickly fixed, and none of which have happened in quite a while.
