    With the new iTunes 9.2.1(5), I seem to have trouble sorting some of my video files. Every video file (converted from .avi to .mp4 with Handbrake, using the "Universal Apple" preset) I throw at iTunes seem to be added to the Movies section.

    I tried updating the metadata from Get Info, filling out the Video tab with appropriate names, season number, episode number and episode ID. That didn't get anywhere.

    I tried putting "TV Shows" as a genre but that doesn't do anything either.

    I even tried making a new folder in the iTunes folder, naming it "TV Shows" and throwing videos in there. No luck either.

    Any other ideas?

    Options tab

    In the Get Info dialog in iTunes, check the Options tab to see what kind of media the file is. Handbrake marks files as Movies. Change the kind to TV show and it should go where it belongs. You can select multiple videos and change them all at the same time with Get Info in iTunes.
