    Actually, there are plenty of options, at least with Strings! Type this into Terminal

    Edit the strings to what you want

    I have edited and all but I cant find my remote :\

    Oh and backup your Localizable.strings just in case!

    Front Row shows "movies" that are in your movies folder.
    If you want a movie to be seen in Front Row put it in your movies folder.

    Movie trailers are on Apple's website and are only one size normally.


    A 5 GIG movie will take some time to "buffer" because it's .well..5 Gigs :) and also it depends on the type of file.

    you cant simply "copy" a DVD to your HD and watch it because it has seperate video and sound TS files for reference.

    Just stick the DVD in and watch it with Front Row.

    Well, you can always rip it with e.g. Handbrake and place the resulting mp4/mov file in ~/Movies/ and Front Row will play those very well... ;)

    Remote missing? command-esc launches Front Row from the keyboard, use the arrows to navigate and enter/escape to go back and forth.

    Thanks, thats actually pretty awsome! I just wrote a short Applescript to make it work, but I didnt know about that. The people at the Apple Store, when I bought my MacBook, said you can only access it thru the remote.
