Argh! I'm pulling my hair out!! I have ripped a chunk of my DVD library and stored it on an external drive. (avi files). I would like them to play from front row on my mac and if it's all good, I plan to use a permanent front row based media centre. Obviously, it would be nice to see the dvd cover artwork and movie information - it would also be nice to be able to keep the films on the external drive (and use pointer files stored on the mac if necessary). I understand I need to get my movies into itunes to do this properly. But I don't want to re-encode films that have already been encoded once before for obvious reasons - therefore, I need to make some itunes friendly tag file thingies. This is the only other option to re-encoding, yes? Yes I know there are already plenty of guides around to do this, believe me I have tried about 20 of them, but I still can't do it. I have tried... Quicktime Save as reference movie ...Needs Quicktime pro though Movie2iTunes 1.2 Great! Simple drag&drop app to make an itunes friendly file tagging my movies ...I start it up, select media folder then it crashes ...Restart, do it again, it just crashes (I'm using the latest imac with up to date software - is it crashing because it relies on QT pro to already be installed???) VideoDrive 1.8 Looks great, but again you need to pay for it and I only want the ability to add cover artwork not all the other stuff. Any help would be GREATLY appreciated.
