    I've been encoding my X-Files DVDs to put in iTunes, and I notice that in the iTunes store, the description of each episode matches the back cover on the DVD. However, I've noticed movies such as American Psycho have a unique description. I also know most metadata taggers get their info from IMDB, amazon, etc. which is not the case with iTunes. So does anyone know where iTunes collects their metadata from? Do they make up their own descriptions for certain titles? Also, are their any programs that gets the exact info as what iTunes has? I've been using MetaX and Videotag to add metadata, but I've been doing it by hand so it mimics iTunes' descriptions.
