    iTunes might be pretty good for music but it just aint good enough for videos. And I have a lot of them on my Mac. Over a 1000 I guess. From small clips downloaded from web to full length dvd rips to home videos. I know iTunes can play all of them but it doesnt do a good job while organizing them. Is there any alternative available? I tried iVideo but it doesnt play the video well enough on my MB coz it`s not UB. Is there any other good app available which takes care of your videos better than iTunes?

    i store them manually. i have a videos folder, then folders for each thing, such as movies, seinfeld, house, etc. works good enough for me

    Thats exactly how I (and apparantely everyone) is doing it. But it`d have been really great if these could be organised in a better way.

    Hi,

    I've been thinking about it because I will have my first mac ever next week.
    Since I have a considerable amount of divx and want to enjoy them in front row and use itunes for cataloging I found this;

    method for getting divx files into itunes:

    Also take a look at the first reply there, that guy found about the same way but maybe a better one

    method for automate the above;

    Don't know if it works, but if you try, I'd love to hear your experience with this. IF it works, all I still need to do is finding out how to show srt subtitles along with it, but haven't found anything for that yet
