What's in the Videos Menu

Your iPod is also a personal movie player. Before you grab the popcorn, here's what you'll find on its menu of video-setting and sorting options:

  • Movies. Go here to find any full-length feature films you've purchased from the iTunes Store as well as your own home movies.

  • Rentals. If you opted to rent a movie instead of buying it outright, you'll find it waiting for you in this menu.

  • TV Shows. A menu for iTunes Store-purchased episodes and personally recorded shows.

  • Music Videos. A list of your collected music video clips.

  • Video Playlists. Just like music, you can create playlists of videos in iTunes.

  • Settings. You can configure your TV playback options. For example, you can set the iPod to play video in widescreen format or adjust it for full-screen viewing. An option to turn on closed-captioning is here, too.

Playing a video works just like playing a song: browse, scroll, and select. Chapter 7 and Chapter 8 tell you how to buy, sort, and organize your iPod's video collection using iTunes.
