FCTR(tm) iMport TV (v1.0)
FCTR(tm) iMport TV is a nifty little program that assists you with importing TV shows into iTunes 7.1 (or later).
Importing MP4 (or M4V or MOV) files into iTunes causes iTunes to automatically place them into the "Movies" library. Since TV shows are NOT movies, it becomes REAL tedious to rename and change all the info on all the TV shows you've imported. Not useful.
Assuming you've named and filed all the TV shows correctly on your hard drive (see the example included in the help screen), FCTR(tm) iMport TV will import the files, update all the info, and change the type to TV Show automatically.
FCTR(tm) iMport TV is written in Visual Basic 6.0 for Win32 platforms. It's been tested under Windows XP (Service Pack 2).
It's FREE! That's right, FREE! Donations are always appreciated, however.
!!!ATTENTION WINDOWS ME and WINDOWS 2000 USERS!!!
Apparently, there is a problem with replacing system files using a setup program. If, during the setup of this program, you are prompted to replace system files, please decline. You must upgrade your operating system to the latest service pack. This can be done at:
Sadly, at this time, there is nothing I can do about this. Thank you, Microsoft.
Windows 95/98/NT/XP/2003/Vista users shouldn't have this problem and can safely answer "Yes" to replace system files, if prompted.
!!!ATTENTION WINDOWS ME AND WINDOWS 2000 USERS!!!
If you are a Windows NT/2000/XP/2003/Vista user, make sure you are logged in with Administrator privileges. Once you've downloaded it, run FCTRSetup.EXE. Internet Explorer users can "Run from this location".
Select the root folder containing your arranged TV shows, and watch it work!
If you need assistance importing your TV shows from DVD to your hard drive, we HIGHLY recommend DVDFab Platinum.
