    Hi,

    I have finally found some time to rip my DVD collection onto my HDD and link them to itunes using Handbrake (Thank you to all for the great settings..). My plan is to sync this to my ATV so I can watch them on my TV or to my iPhone4/ iPad when im away.

    My problem is I would like to have all of the correct film info (Title, synopsis, year etc) included, but do not know how to do this? Can anyone help? I don't fancy typing it all in! Any help would be great!

    Thanks

    Sean

    I use an app called Identify 2. It was recommended by others here. It works pretty good. It has a free version or you can pay $10 for a full version license. I just use the free version as it does everything I need.

    Run the files through MetaX.

    It can automatically tag files, provided you search for the right film/TV episode.

    For movies, I use Vidalin to get the main bits of info. If I don't like the poster art, then I take the file that Vidalin makes and run it through Subler, after finding a good poster using Google/Yahoo.
