Including Music Videos in Playlists?

    This may be more of a general iTunes question, but here goes:

    Is there any way, when I have my AppleTV play a playlist of Music from my iTunes library, for it to play the Music Videos that are part of that playlist as they come up? For instance, "My Top Rated" playlist includes a small number of Music Videos. It would be cool if I could choose that playlist on Apple TV and it would go through each of the songs, showing just the Album Art for most but then occasionally playing a video instead of just the Album Art.

    Right now, although I have made the videos part of that playlist, both AppleTV and iTunes just show the first still from the video where the Album Art would otherwise appear - they never play the actual video (presumably because I have chosen Music rather than Music Videos).

    I assume there is no way to do this, but I wanted to confirm. Thanks.

    I play my ripped music videos all the time. Just use the 'Music Video' and not 'Movie' when you do a FILE/Get Info/Video Kind on your video. I have a 'Folder' called Music Video to find them.

    But what I want do is play Music Videos as part of a Playlist that includes both Music and Music Videos. I don't think this is possible, but let me know if you think it is.
