[prMac.com] Paderborn, Germany - Indie developer, Jendrik Bertram today is pleased to announce the release of iFlicks 2, the first major update of iFlicks for Mac OS X. iFlicks has integrated video muxing and encoding capabilities, so that users can choose the best option to quickly import their video files into iTunes. They can add metadata to Movies and TV Shows to make their iTunes library look awesome and even update existing videos by dragging them from iTunes to the iFlicks window.
With iFlicks, users can process their video files faster than ever before, so that they can watch them on their iOS device right away. iFlicks uses the most advanced encoders to convert the video stream while keeping quality high and file sizes low. Many current video files can be transferred into m4v containers without lengthy re-encoding or quality loss.

iFlicks can be fully automated using rules, watch folders, and scripts. Users can automatically open videos copied to watch folders and run custom rules to modify metadata and settings. The app handles all common video formats like H.264 and DivX and supports all common video containers like mp4, mkv, and avi.
Using the powerful rules, users can not only move metadata around to their preference, but also automatically choose preset, destination, and further processing options depending on file path, type, or other conditions. Simple rules easily make repeatable steps work automatically and there is powerful rules support for video tagging.
