Have about 50 DV tapes that I needed to digitize before it was too late. App works as claimed - easy to use and results look great.
Was having trouble finding something to copy across my digital camera tapes tried this free version worked great so I purchased the product
Ich habe eine alte Sony DCR-PC110E und bereits viele Versuche gestartet, über Firewire die Bänder auf mein MacBook Pro (MacOS 11.2.3) zu übertragen. Mit LifeFlix funktioniert das einwandfrei.
Das Aufsplittern in einzelne Szenen würde ich gerne abstellen können. Das ist anscheinend nicht möglich.
Tried a few other free apps. LifeFlix does exactly what I needed. Rewinds, grabs MiniDV, breaks clips into scenes. Leaps over breaks in timecode (big win).
I used the free version, and while the app is not perfect, it does the job quite well and is really the only option out there on the Mac side for digitizing video from a Hi-8 or DV camcorder. I was able to successfully digitize a mini-DV tape using a Canon Elura 100 camcorder, and in spite of the weird audio bug with Canons I was able to work around that and capture the audio correctly.
I could not believe how simple and fast the transfer process was once I figured out how to daisy chain connections from my Sony handycam to my MacBook air. I put the clips on a peripheral hard drive to save space on my MacBook Air- LifeFlix allowed me to download directly to that drive. I will say, it is frustratingly slow to edit directly in NetFlix; I moved clips to iMovie for that task. Very satisfied with LifeFlix overall.
It is expensive but it works. Good luck with your project
did the job
I connected my Canon HV10 and a Sony GV-D1000 to a Mac Mini 2018. Then imported around 60 DV and HDV tapes very easily and without any issues using the Lifeflix full version (I tested the free version first just to confirm the function). The SW was certainly worth the money for us, thank you!
Excellent product and I’ve tried a number. Only one that would not stop import and detection of break in data.
Just what I was needing for the hundreds of precious camcorder tapes I have taken over the years. Imported three so far and delighted at how easy it is, so far so good.
computer/software would not recognize the signal from the camera, LifeFlix was like flipping a switch.
I'm waiting on cords and adapters before I can use the program. Looking forward to seeing it in action.
Worked like a charm for my needs. Camera and laptop synced instantly and I was able to pull the files from my camera with ease.
Used once. Seemed to work well. Considering trying it again.

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
