I'm trying to rip some DVDs on my Mac, the boxset for a TV show, using Handbrake. I'd also like to automatically fetch metadata - show name, episode name, etc. But MetaX isn't getting any metadata for me for this particular TV program. Any other Mac apps I can use that do similar?

What sort of metadata are you hoping for that it won't provide? –  Ben Wyatt Jan 26 '11 at 13:54
    
Name of show, episode, description, season #, etc. –  bpapa Jan 26 '11 at 14:29

Some that I've found:

I've yet to find one that does everything I want. iFlicks.app comes close, but the feature I want that's missing is the ability to tag chapters. You can always use more than one app, but I don't like the idea of different programs overwriting my metadata.

iFlicks is the best I've encountered. Recommended. –  Gauzy Jul 25 '11 at 1:06

You can try Handbrake. Hands down, the best I've tried.

Right, I'm already using Handbrake to rip. But that has nothing to do with automatically fetching metadata. I'll edit the question to clarify. –  bpapa Jan 26 '11 at 14:28
