Beware Country-Specific iTunes Stores

If you buy an iPhone, iPod touch, or iPad, and you happen to be a user of the iTunes Store in more than one country, take note which country's store you're viewing in iTunes when you plug in the device for the first time. This will be the country the device will register with, and you will be forever barred from purchasing or even updating free apps from anywhere else. The only way out is to delete everything on the device and do a full restore.

iFlicks 2.0.1

Send Article to a Friend

After several months of beta testing, Jendrik Bertram released version 2.0 of his iFlicks video encoding and metadata management app a few weeks ago with a redesigned interface and a number of metadata search improvements (including localized content ratings). If you’re not familiar with iFlicks, be sure to read Josh Centers’s overview in “iFlicks Improves iTunes Imports” (10 January 2013). Bertram recently updated iFlicks to version 2.0.1, which now makes sure to wait for new items in a watch folder to finish copying before processing, fixes an issue with setting the current location in Preferences, fixes problems with audio encoding and muxing, and updates several unspecified translations. ($24.99 new from the Mac App Store, free update, 10.6 MB)

Cool. I contacted them via email (on a Sunday) to see if it would process eyetv files and they answered yes in less than 12 hours.

Unfortunately it didn't work. I sent the following to the app owner. We'll say what the owner says. "It didn't work. I tried to convert a 4 minute Eyetv video to the preset iPad and iTunes and 1080P compatible format. The iPad did the conversion but the result was 16 minutes long so when played in iTunes the video was way behind the sound. The iTunes compatible format would not load into iTunes at all. I even tried exporting to 1080P from Eyetv first but that failed entirely."
