Hi guys,

Is there anything I can click in iPhoto so I can just view the videos that are in my iPhoto library?

I have a couple dozen home movies scattered about various dates and I would just like to see them all on one page.

Thanks!

Maybe not quite what you wanted, but you can arrange it so that your vids are all in one event.
Navigate your events for suitable videos.
Select (highlight) video you want.
Select Photos from the menu bar, go down the list and select 'Flag Photo'.
Repeat till you have selected all you want.
Navigate back to the event home.
Select Events from menu bar and go down to 'Create event from flagged photos'.
A warning will pop up saying that this will move the videos to the new event, click ok if this is cool.
Then you get a new event comprised of your selected videos, the original events will now be missing those vids.

Make a smart album.

You could use something like *.MOV for a filter.

I do this so I can easily export my movies or pics etc.

Depending on your version of iPhoto (though I think the past few years worth all do this), any movie files imported into iPhoto are automatically tagged with a Movies keyword. Just use the search functionality and search for that keyword and it will show all movies from all events at once. :)
