    hi....i just burned a DVD into my "movie" section via Handbrake. I then copied the movie into Itunes so i can sync with my ipod. Am i doubling the amount of memory used? (I assume I am)

    is there a way to have itunes movies point to "movies" in Finder as to avoid this?

    You can adjust whether or not iTunes imports files to a separate location in iTunes Preferences > Advanced > General, although I'm unsure if this applies to video files as well.

    You can check by navigating to your iTunes music folder and looking in the folder named "Movies."

    Why not just delete the other file and let iTunes handle everything?

    You probably did double it I'm thinking because handbrake made a copy then you dragged it into itunes. If you go into your preferences you can change it so that itunes won't copy it and file it on its own. It will just go with the file you dragged in there. Caution if you move the file anywhere else after dragging it into itunes it won't be able to find it.
