    Does anyone know how to restrict which videos are displayed in the Movies menu. Currently it displays ALL videos on my hard drive.

    Sure, move the videos that you don't want out of the Movies folder in the Finder window.

    That should fix it.

    That was the first thing I tried. But it did not work. Is there anyway to set preferences for FrontRow?

    Why?

    Are some "mature" videos showing up, or something?!?

    I don't know of any way to restrict movies from popping up. Perhaps if you have another hard drive, you could put your "other" videos on that, and unmount the volume from within Disk Utility, thus making them unavailable.

    That might work.

    Or create a hidden folder - make a new folder named "other" or something like that. Then, launch the terminal, and type in " mv ~/other ~/.other. Then, to open the folder from the Finder, hit Apple+Shift+G, and type in ~/.other, and it will open the folder. Then, when you close that Finder window, the folder will disappear again.

    That might work, too.

    I cleaned up the Movies folder and that helped. The other culprit was iTunes. I apparently had copied all my .mov's to my iTunes library, which also shows up in the Video menu of Front Row. All is well now. :D

    Yup. iTunes videos + home 'Movies' folder videos. That's it.
