    When I run my file through handbrake, it comes out fine (plays through iTunes and quicktime), however after tagging through metaX, all i get is a black screen with no sound as the video. This is happening more and more frequently with my files, is there a different Meta Tagger that people can recommend?

    There's many threads on this very topic. I use Subler but there are probably better apps specifically for tagging.

    Assuming you're having this problem on a Mac, there are plenty of options far better than MetaX, among them iDentify2, iFlicks, and the previously mentioned Subler. I have no experience with iFlicks bit users here seem very happy with it. Subler does a great job but I personally prefer iDentify2 as it allows tagging large batches of files simultaneously and the lookup functionality works great, pulling data from themoviedb, TVDB, and TagChimp (and possibly IMDB, not sure).

    Just stay away from MetaX for Mac--no longer supported and the common source of tagging nightmares, as you've seen.
