Watching Video

When you’re finished downloading video content, you can click Videos in the Source list to display your video titles. As shown in Figure 6, I’ve been putting that quick connection to good use by downloading an episode of Lost, a music video by Michael Jackson (he may be weird, but he sure can dance), a Pixar short, and two video podcasts. The other video item in there is the first movie I ever made with my digital camera.

Figure 6 Downloaded and imported videos appear when you click Videos in the Source list.

Now you can watch videos right in iTunes. Make sure that album artwork is displayed—if it isn’t, choose Edit > Show Artwork. Figure 6 shows the artwork for the selected video, Lost, in the lower-left corner of the iTunes window. You can resize the artwork by dragging the Source list’s divider bar to the right or left. If you make it too big, however, you’ll lose some resolution.

To watch a video in iTunes, select it and click the play button. Pretty intuitive, huh?

But that’s not what this article is about. The goal is to get that video on your iPod so you can watch it there.
