music video category

Hello all. Quick question. iTunes has categories on the left for
music
movies
tv shows
podcasts
etc...

Why is there no music video category, or is there? I'm not a fan of having music videos mixed in with all my music and then having to hunt them down.

Thanks.

I am trying to figure this one out as well. Seems like there should be a music video category.

finally a reply, lol.

Yea, with all the stuff iTunes has/does, there is no category there on the left. Seems crazy to me.

Look a little lower on the left, in your Playlists area. One of the new preconfigured Smart Playlists in iTunes 9 is called "Music Videos". Its one rule: Media Kind is Music Video.

If you're still in iTunes 8.x, you'll need to enter a common indicator, for example the words Music Video, in an unused field (I'd use Grouping) on each video, then create a Smart Playlist that had the rule: Grouping contains Music Video.

This has was also there in iTunes 8, we've had it for a while. It makes no sense to me that we have no MV tab though...

I just don't like having them in there with my music. They get in the way if you select a bunch of songs to create a playlist. You get the popup asking if you want to mix the two. You have to go through and search to deselect them. Not to mention find them to play them. I forget that I have them at times.
