    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.
