    i had a quick play around with this the other day, ive got about 50 or so music videos i wanted an easier way to watch and find the videos i want so i tried enabling video playback in iTunes and copying them to my library.
    first thing i noticed was it seems to take the video about 2 seconds to "settle down" and play smooth if you start a video or fast forward a little. in this few secs it lags and the sound doesnt match the video.
    anyone else had this problem and got any ideas of how to sort it?

    I don't think there's a solution for what you're experiencing.

    I really dislike watching videos in iTunes unless I need to (ie, it's a hassle or not worth it to drag and drop to open in QuickTime). One thing I haven't figured out (which is probably due to the lack of the feature) is to get something playing at half the size, double the size, etc. or to be able to see at what resolution the video is currently running at. I've never been able to expand or contract something and then get it to play back at the actual resolution either.

    All of these things really bug me, so I end up using QuickTime as a video player (and a great one at that). Using the Favorites feature and also having a nicely organized music videos collection (not to mention Spotlight if I really don't care to open a new finder window) serves my purposes quite well—that, and watching all of my non-music video related content on my iPod too.

    If you ctrl-click the video while it's playing, it gives you the options for half size, normal size, double size, and full screen.

    I just use quicktime or my iPod. Spotlight finds them fast enough.
