    If I have downloaded a video - which goes into my downloads folder as standard - and then choose to add that video in Itunes, is it safe to delete the video from my downloads folder as its now stored on Itunes?

    Yes. This will be stored in your "iTunes folder". go and check it for you own peace of mind but I speak the truth :)

    It depends on the setting "Copy files to the iTunes Music folder when adding to library". If it is checked, you can delete the original. If not, you can't.

    Oh ok. It must be checked by default?

    Yep, it's checked by default. Some of us prefer unchecking it, so we can manage our iTunes files, rather than letting iTunes do it.
