iTunes Videos no longer open up in separate window? :(

In the brand new itunes, whenever I play a video file, it covers up all of itunes. I liked when it opened a separate popup window. Anyway to go back to that? Thanks.

Preferences -> Playback

You can set videos to play in a separate window there.

Preferences -> Playback is NOT correct. In iTunes 10.4 (80) you simply right click on the video and select play in seperate window.

It was correct two years ago when the thread was made.

Yah, I'm pissed as well. I still want to work with itunes when a video is playing. This should still be a preference setting.

if you right click the video there is an option to play in separate window. I noticed that it doesn't want to play in a separate window if its an iTunes extras video though.

Mac version menu

To get the menu in the Mac version of iTunes, simply CTRL+Click on the video window. You will get a menu similar to that which rodman109110 shows above, but it will say "Play Video in Separate Window." That is, unless you're already seeing it in a separate window, in which case that item will read "Play Video in iTunes Window."
