The free trial proved to me that the software works exactly as promised. It will be invaluable in digitizing hundreds of hours of tapes, it is perfectly automated, even separates scenes. In many ways, I wish there was an option to just ingest the whole tape, but I can see the problem with tapes that are only partially used. There’s one issue, in the current build it will, at some point, stop recognizing my deck, requiring an entire reboot of my Mac to have it rediscover the deck. Power cycling the deck and re-inserting cables does nothing.
Previous to Lifeflix when I tried to digitize my older videos they broke into a million short clips. Lifeflix is intuitive and seamless!
Just downloaded for evaluation and everything worked fine with my old JVC camera. Decided to buy the full product.
Worked good for my one free tape
I felt that the product worked as advertised but, it was cost prohibitive and just not for me.
I stumbled on this application while watching YouTube videos. I’m super happy with this discovery. I have many mini dvd and hi-8 tapes that I’m now importing. Makes this job so easy. I’m able to do a rough cut with the app then import the clips into my editing software.
I had a very good experience installing & using this product. It helped me move forward by resolving an obstacle I was having. Good quality output!
I was having issues connecting my two camcorders to my computer and they responded quickly to my questions. In the end, I had to request a refund since I was not able to transfer my videos but they were very helpful and supportive. Would have no issues purchasing software from this company again.
This is a wonderful life-saving piece of software. Just what I needed at a time when I was struggling with upgrades on my Mac, at the same time as I was attempting to exhume video from old MiniDV and Video 8 tapes. Many years ago I had previously exported the videos as mp4, m4v, flv etc - but that was at a time when disc space was limited, when streaming was done at low bandwidth or not at all, and the viewing monitors were low resolution. I wanted products/files with enough quality data to look reasonable on modern high-resolution monitors or TVs. Anyone in the same situation as me should not ask themselves twice about whether or not they should buy LifeFlix. It is a no-brainer! Without the need for any documentation, I was able to use the application with great success. Yes, of course, I am sure the app. could be improved in places, but in its current state, it is stable, it is very easy to use, and it is just so much better than anything else I have seen for the non-technical home user. There is nothing to compete with it as far as I am concerned. A real life-saver. Well worth the investment. Thank you!
Overall LifeFlix is very useful and very easy to use. Already did around 30 mini DV tapes which are around 15 years old. It had no problems at all.
I hooked up my video camera and everything worked for import the first time. Very nice experience. Sometimes it crashes when I try to "convert to HD" more than 1 clip at a time, so now I just do 1 at a time and it is fine. Totally recommended purchase, if you want to save your old movies you should buy this.

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
