Getting any videos in Front Row!
A great tip submitted by Laurent Lenert: Getting any videos in Front Row! Apple did a very good job with Front Row especially with its simplicity. The only thing with something that simple is that it is there, but there isn't much information about how to use it at its best. I have a lot of videos on my hard drive in a wide variety of formats. I don't want to have to import them all into iTunes just to get them in Front Row. On top of that, there are some great video formats that iTunes doesn't work too well with (such as DivX). Well it seems there is an easy way of getting that content into Front Row without changing much. In the Front Row "Videos" section, there is a sub-menu called "Movies". This brings you every video stored in the "Movies" folder, located in you Home folder, into Front Row. The only thing with that is that I like to keep that folder organized by iMovie by keeping other videos stored elsewhere. You can easily solve that problem with an Alias. Just create an Alias of the folder containing all the videos you want in Front Row and paste it in the "Movies" folder. What is great is that it works with every video format I tried (including DivX). Thanks for the great tip Laurent!
