Big problems

I can't get it to work on my iMac 12.2 despite what the support has told me and now I cannot find anyone at support to help me

Works well with a few odd habits

Compared to all the other packages I've tried (iMovie, Premier Elements, Premier Pro) where digitising is painfully slow and complicated to initiate, LifeFlix has a really simple interface and just gets the job done. It's a real gem in this respect and I like the clear instruction to just "compress all downloads".
I had to go back to v. 3.6 because although 4.1.8 has a cleaner interface, the simple Combine button has gone or has been moved or renamed. File management is a bit of a headache in 3.6 and guidance as to what works best (e.g. saving to the computer HD or to an attached external drive) is absent. It is easy enough to switch video file location but the message "All existing tapes and media will be moved to the new location" may not necessarily suit the user who just wants the next few tapes go into folder somewhere else. If there is a reason for this an explanation would help.
Professionals are unlikely to use LF so reasons for why it does what it does need to be simply explained. I agree that file names should contain the name of the tape unless they prove to be too long.
Lastly a simple manual that is quick to read and explains buttons and menu items is essential for grownups. Frequently asked questions are of limited use.
All that said Ill just persevere with LF having just digitised about 40 x 42 minute Mini DV tapes over a just a few days with very little fuss.

Basically works, but could be much better

Basically allows me to capture my MiniDV tapes. However, it’s not clear why it stops half way: captures scenes get a UUID as file name, so the scenes are scrambled in the file system — why aren’t they just numbered ascending? Speaking of file names: why isn’t the the name of the tape enclosed in the file name? What is the tape name good for? LifeFlix usually detects scenes and end of tape markers but I didn’t manage to capture timecode information.

Well worth money as it works with older FireWire cameras!

Easiest way to get your DV footage!

After trialing out several different methods, cables & hours of youtube videos trying to get my VHS footage I came across lifeflix and it's made the process completely streamlined and stress free.

Fantastic way to archive

Archived 48+ hours of skydiving footage from minidv tapes and all went smoothly. Software did a good job at scene detection.

Old Tapes, No problem!

Added all my mini cassette DV tapes to the app back in 2017, updated my Mac to the latest Ventura 13.1, developer sent me the latest version, was able to re-import from the old files, works great!

Works Perfectly

Bit on the expensive side but if you have a ton of old tapes then it’s well worth the money. Does the job perfectly.
