    So, I just downloaded seasons 1-4 of The Office, and they're in .AVI files. How do I import them into my iTunes TV Show Library? MUST I convert them ALL first? :(

    Note, I want to view them on my iPod also.

    You'll need to convert for iPod with iSquint or other similar software.

    You're gonna get flamed for pirating films.

    BUY IT like a normal human. They're available in stores and online.

    If you want our help, you'll not pirate things.

    All we can really do is tell you not to pirate copyrighted material. But if you still want to, I suppose there's nothing we can do to stop you from doing so. But that doesn't excuse your arrogance.

    Hooray for tools like this who give the music, movie and tv studios ample reason to keep pushing DRM on us. "It's the Internet. That means it should be free!"

    You will care when your computer dies because of all the viruses you'll pick up from those files.

    Don't complain to us when that happens.

    It's a Mac. There are no viruses. This is currently impossible.

    Trojan, not a virus. Look up the definitions. :)

    Yes, I'm afraid you are going to have to convert them all. It's frustrating, I know, but the converter program I use ( called free ipod video converter ) let's you make a selection of the files you want to convert, and has the option of shutting down when converting is done, so you can leave it converting while you sleep . . . that's what I did.

    I did NOT convert pirated movies, I converted files I had bought myself . . .

    You can use something like ATV Flash. Once your Apple TV is hacked, you can FTP into your Apple TV (AppleTV.local, username and password: frontrow) and upload the .AVI files into the Media directory.
