Easy to use for old DV Tapes
This program has helped me digitize all my old home videos that have been neglected for years. It is easy to use and we are excited to video of our children when they were young. I highly recommend this product.
It took me a long time to find a reliable way in which to transfer old mini dv videos to my iMac, but LifeFlix is the only software I have tested that has done it. I like the manner in which individual clips are placed into readily-accessible folders that enable me to undertake further processing with other software, as that in LifeFlix itself is rather limited. But clips can be combined and saved easily under LifeFlix should the user prefer.
LifeFlix does all that it promises and more importantly the customer service is second to none.
Even in the free version.
I must have exchanged a dozen emails with questions and Tim from LifeFkix never wavered. He responded to all of my Questions even though I had not yet paid for the full version.
Good Customer service on a great product
Easy to use program with little but enough features. Only downside is the rather unusual way to save. If you don't pay attention and you change the storage link to another location, it will move all you videos with it. That should be changed, but the rest is tumps up. A lot of old video codexes. I can recommend this software to save your video memories.
Used for my trial tape. No issues and audio synced correctly. Like the product but wish the price was lower.
I inquired about how to export the plist formatted database info into a CSV formatted file so that I could integrate the scene lists with a larger custom DB I designed for my extensive set of source videos (3/4”, Beta, V8...). Their tech lead put together a quick program that did the extraction into a set of delimited fields - perfect for import to my DB. The programmer turned this around in a couple of days. Thanks so much!
This could be a very powerful tool for production studios or anyone with another media database.
LifeFlix Importer & Editor 3.5
The software does the job for Mac users. I have transferred about 9 hours of video without any errors so far. About half of that was Hi8 analogue tapes I transferred from one video recorder through another digital recorder on to DV tapes. The other half was DV tapes directly. I have then created a file about 1 hour long in LifeFlix and then successfully imported this into iVideo on the Mac for editing and creating an MP4 file. Brilliant! Salvaging all of my old format video has been fabulous.
I tried everything to transfer my mini DV tapes to my computer and nothing worked. Then I found Lifeflix and it did the job flawlessly. I’m going to buy the program soon.
I used LifeFlix to back up 12 mini DV tapes from my old Sony mini DV cam. Was super smooth, upscaled all tapes efficiently. Recognized all cuts and separated them into individual clips. Highly recommended!
I have a bunch of mini DV tapes that I wanted to capture. I tried iMovie, which did capture the video, but the audio was out of sync with the video. So then I tried Final Cut Pro, and again, the audio was way out of sync from the video. So I sprung for LifeFlix, and was able to capture every tape with perfectly synced audio and video. Thanks LifeFlix!

Recently I mentioned we originally developed LifeFlix in 2012 because of old MiniDV tapes in a shoebox. I then described how we realized that just as many, if not more people, are using LifeFlix to capture old 8mm video formats like Video8, Hi8 and Digital8. I started thinking about Video Home...Read More
We originally developed LifeFlix in 2012 because we had about 100 old MiniDV tapes in a shoebox. Even though I've spent 25 years in the video technology industry it was still difficult to import these old tapes easily. I tried iMovie but it was cumbersome and frequently didn't work at all. ...Read More
The truth is we've been sitting on this feature for a few weeks now. We're working hard on Catalina support and the idea of introducing a new feature before we completed that work made us pause. I was worried our customers would definitely NOT find that amusing and prefer we focus! ...Read More
