    But if I reclassify the videos as "home video", it works just fine.

    Anyone know whats up with that?

    No issues here with the latest ATV software and iOS. Tried the basics, reboot the ATV and the computer?

    Do they show up under Music > Music Videos and just not play, or do they not show up at all?

    What I'd like to do is be able to either 1) queue up music videos via iTunes or the Remote app, or 2) have a playlist of music videos shuffle on the AppleTV.

    I don't care if it is done via the AppleTV or from the computer running iTunes, but neither is working.

    I've rebooted the computer, rebooted the AppleTV, and no go.

    Another twist: if I have the file listed as a music video, I can queue them up in iTunes, but can't send them to either of my Apple TVs via Airplay. Or, if I have them formatted as a home video, I can send them to Apple TV, but I can't use the "add to up next" feature in iTunes.

    It makes my head hurt.

    Try no on skip when shuffle. I have over 2000 that play flawlessly. Also I group them by band name and album name music video.
