    Is there a way for me to print my movie list off of itunes?

    Some of my movies seem to be messed up, whenever I play them on my apple TV they dont play, freeze the apple TV, and then the apple TV restarts. I want to check all my movies on the apple TV to see which are messed up (I have a feeling its quite a few, even though they all play fine in iTunes). I have time right now to re rip the DVD's that are not working right.

    Having a list would be handy (and since the library is on my desktop which is not in the same room as the apple TV).

    So is there a way for me to do this easily?

    If you right click Movies in iTunes, you can "Export song list", but that prints all the information about the movie in a text file with lots of long lines, with everything from play count to location.

    To just print the movie titles, change the view options for Movies to uncheck all columns so you see just the movie name, select all movies from the list (command-a), and copy (command-c) into a TextEdit file (command-v). This pastes just the columns being displayed, in this case just name.

    I used DVDPedia and CDPedia. Both work really well. You can Google for more info I'm sure...

    I got it, plinden's suggestion worked great. Nice to have a printed list, my chicken scratch writing throws me off at times, lol.

    Thanks guys, much appreciated.

    A much simpler approach is to copy all data fields, paste them into a spread sheet, and then delete all the columns except the movie titles.

    In iTunes - VIEW - VIEW AS - LIST
    FILE - PRINT and there you go. You can also save this as a PDF

    You don't even need to change the iTunes view before you print. The options are in print dialog:
