    Why hasn't Apple come out with an application similar to iTunes but for video, say... iVideo.
    It would be nice if I could use one program and browse through my video collection (although It doesn't need to show wmv or asf files). It would also be great when we finally get the Video Capable iPod. Any thoughts, or wishes for this App.

    Or, FTM, for software. Or any other collection.

    I imagine it would be more like iPhoto, but let you attach some kind of link to a thumbnail image that would tell you the physical location of whatever it is.

    Maybe I'm just not getting what your are saying here but I think we already have this app, it's called the Fiinder. In Column View you can very easily scroll through a folder and view thumbnails and preview all your movies. Am I missing something here? Not trying to crap on your idea or anything, I just don't think I understand what it is you want to do.

    It is true that the finder does some of these things, however, the same is true of MP3s. Hence I believe a new iLife program would be helpful. One would no longer have to search through the endless folders in the finder. Also one could have continuous video. Like running your own Music Video display for durring parties, or while studying. I find it quite annoying to be forced to also self organized videos or movies, I think iTunes CDDB style tags could be imbedded into the files to keep them organized by artist or show. I just feel that it would greatly increase the iLife value.

    I don't think videos are popular enough for Apple to create a program for them, a lot of people may download .mov's etc but there probably isnt that high of a market for them which is also why you most likely won't see a iPod video player any time soon.
    Ripping cd's into mp3's/AAC/etc is a great idea used by many, ripping DVD's/Movies into files/mov's/avi's/etc is not so great idea as they take up a lot of space with a significant loss in quality and not many people use it.....
