MetaZ

Two letters better than MetaX

Introduction

MetaZ is an mp4 meta-data editor for OS X.
It started its life when another great meta-data editor MetaX stopped getting updated, some of the web-services it used changed in ways that broke functionality and it had some really anoying (to us at least) little missing things like no proper window resizing. This lead to us starting MetaZ as a reimplementation of MetaX with a few ideas of our own sprinkled in there.

Bugs / Feature request

For bugs and feature requests you can use our issue tracker at github

Extras

We have created some extra resources and small plugins that were deemed to small or silly to be included with the main program.

The classic moo from MetaX is finally available via a small MetaZ plugin you can download from here. To install it simply unpack the zip file and drop the unpacked script onto the MetaZ dock icon.

If you use Script Debugger from Late Night Software you are in luck because we have created a Script Debugger template for MetaZ plugins which illustrate the different types of events plugins can respond to. To get the template click here

Building

There are some files missing in the git repository that you will need if you are going to build your own version of MetaZ.

Plugins/Amazon/Access.h
This file contains Amazon AWS access credentials.
Copy Plugins/Amazon/Access_template.h and insert your own credentials.

App/resources/CowHead.png
App/resources/faded_cow*.png
App/resources/presets.png
These files are mostly just taken from MetaX but since I don't have the rights to use them they are not included in the repository.
I have though made a tar with these files and uploaded it to github: missing.tar.gz
