ITunes :: Can't Change Movie Genre To Categorize Films?

May 16, 2012

I've just bought Apple TV and seeing the way navigation works I've tried to change the genre in itunes to categorize my films. I can change the genre on some, but most of them I can't - the function is greyed out when I go to 'Get Info'.

Applications :: Creating New Movie Genre Thumbnails In ITunes 8

Sep 21, 2008

I saw a couple of other threads talking about this and thought we should have a thread where you can show off and share your own custom made Genre thumbnails. In case your not sure how to do it this is a good guide: [URL]. Basically you need to create a jpeg, put it in the right folder (iTunes>Contents>Resources) with the correct name and then adjust a tiny bit of information in the genre plist.

Its very simple and people who have no experience with this kind of stuff will be able to do it easily. Also if (like me) you are annoyed at the fact that some genres are missing you can add your own in the exact same way as in he link posted. Note in mine that Action & Adventure are now two separate genres and i've added Gangster, Kung Fu, Comic & Anime. Mine are all supposed to be the best films of that genre (ok maybe not Transformers ). Pic link now added, download!

ITunes :: Downloaded HD Films Won't Play As Message States Movie Requires QuickTime

Apr 7, 2012

I'm have iTunes 10.6.1 and have just downloaded two HD movies from iTunes.  They downloaded fine but when I went to play movies I get the following message "This movie requires QuickTime, which is not supported by this version of iTunes"!  I can play the movie via QuickTime but not via iTunes.  I am also unable to sync the movie to my iPad as it states during the sync that "this movie will not play on your iPad".

ITunes For Mac :: How To Create Library That Is Genre Specific

Sep 5, 2014

I have accumulated a large amount of Christmas music in my iTunes library and am running out of space on my hard drive.  I would like to create a library on an external hard drive that contains only my Christmas music and delete it from my computer.  I have successfully created a library that i named "iTunes - Christmas".  On this  HD there were 64 albums that had nothing to do with Christmas music. 

My question is, how do I get my 758 pieceses Christmas music from my MacBook Pro to my iTunes Library on my external HD, freeing up space on my computer?

ITunes For Mac :: Automatically Changing Genre Metadata?

Jun 23, 2014

MacBook Pro 15-inch, Mid 2012
Processor: 2.6 GHz Intel Core i7
Memory: 8 GB 1600 MHz DDR3
Graphics: NVIDIA GeForce GT 650M 1024 MB
Software: OS X 10.9.3 (13D65) 
iTunes 11-2-2 (3)

Why is iTunes automatically changing my genre metadata? For the past couple months I’ve noticed that iTunes has been changing genre information in my music library.  This is a problem because I’ve spent the past decade tweaking the metadata in my iTunes Library to be exactly the way that I want it (particularly with genre and grouping information).   

I have a very large iTunes library and I’ve changed genre and grouping info for organizational reasons.  When iTunes changes the genre of my music, it’s effecting my smart playlists and causing a domino effect of mis-organization.  Tracks and albums are popping up in multiple genres, and things are getting disorganized very quickly. 

I suspect that iTunes is changing the genre info of my purchased music back to how it appears in the iTunes store and that this is going to be a new ongoing Apple issue that is quietly ignored. 

Other notes/observations:

-I am NOT using iTunes Match
-Genius is turned OFF
-Tracks being automatically edited is music that has been purchased from the iTunes Store
-Not all tracks purchased from the iTunes Store is being automatically edited
-If I Command-Info a track that has been edited by iTunes, the metadata changes back to what I had changed it to.  But ONLY when I Command-Info or play the track.  Otherwise the track stays lost in it’s reversed genre and the track disappears from smart playlists that it’s included in.

Mar 31, 2009

I'm not really great with technology and I was wondering would somebody be able to give me a step-by-step guide on how to put videos under one title (like an audiobook, if that's possible). My sister uploaded videos on youtube of her wedding/holidays etc and I have them on my iTunes (there are about 20 of them!) but in the movie library it all looks a mess! I was wondering is it possible to put all the movies under one title? I know I can just make a playlist or something but can be same be done in the movie library?

I have 2 films which are each their own video TS file. When using toast to burn a dvd, I can only drag one of the video TS files. Each video TS file is a full length movie, but what I want from each movie is one short film which is part of the extras. So I want 2 short films on one DVD. How can I put these 2 short films on to one disc?

Software :: DVD Player Not Play Films On G3

Jun 18, 2008

My DVD player software no longer functions on my Powerbook G3 Lombard (Bronze). I had a boot sector problem on my Powerbook and needed to do a wipe and reinstall. I have MacOS X 10.3 and MacOS 9.2.2 on my machine. I am aware that you can't use the 10.3 DVD player and so reinstalled 9.2.2 first. Unfortunately, I cannot find my original Powerbook system disc, so installed 9.2.2 from a G4 system disc I have. Now, the DVD player will not play DVD-Video discs in OS9.

This is a crucial function for me, as I like to watch films on it when I travel on the train. I need to find some software to reinstall from, or fix the hardware incompatibility in some other way (a patch or something). My hardware is: Macintosh Powerbook G3 "Lombard" (Bronze) 400MHz, 256MB RAM, 6GB HD, DVD-ROM. Nobody seems to have the DVD player program (1.3). They say you need 9.1 discs etcetera. I even tried one link that said download DVD player version 1.2 and a tome reader, but the tome reader download site wasn't functioning.
