    Ok so i just canceled Dish Network and the encoded videos are piling up for me to properly tag and get into itunes. I mainly use episode guides and i would like to automate MetaX by supplying it with a text file with all the correct tags for all the files i want to tag, and have it go to work. Is this possible? Can atomic parsley itself be used in this way? Any help would be great.

    I highly recommend IVL in the Mac App Store (

    It will watch folders and automatically populate meta-data, convert to mp4 and add to iTunes.

    In conjunction with Sickbeard ( IVL has allowed me to set up a completely hands off workflow to download, add meta-data, convert and add to iTunes the new episodes to my favorite shows.

    I avoid MetaX

    Subler works well but don't think it can be automated.
