    Hi folks, is there a way of listing videos instead of thumbnails?

    I've the 32gig, a lot of room to load on movies and music videos,
    there in lies the problem as you have to scroll the thumbnails a lot
    to try and locate the one you want, I know, tuff problem to have ;)

    But is there a way to have it listed like the music section has?

    Thanks,
    G2

    It depends on the type of movies.

    If you are referring to movies purchased via iTunes, then no, as the Videos app only has the thumbnail overview. But if you have normal movies without DRM, you could use the CineXPlayer to list and play your movies.

    The movies I have are ones converted from my DVD collection using SlySoft
    and made into Mpeg4 videos, so probably out of luck on that.

    But it's more the music videos than the movies, only can have maybe
    a dozen or so movies anyways so not that big a deal, but the music
    videos, that's a different story, I've bought far more than I should from
    iTunes, I'm sure they're happy with me though ;)

    Thanks for the reply,
    G2

    If you go into your computer's iTunes music sync options (with iPad connected), you will see an option to sync music videos. If you do this they will show up in the iPod app.

    It still takes you into the Video's app to play them, and it does't automatically go back to the iPod app after playing them. But you can view them like a music list.

    Two cautions:

    One, make sure you unselect the videos from the Movies sync, so you don't accidentally end up with two copies.

    Two, if all your music, or videos are not already in the Computer's iTunes library be sure to go to the File menu and Transfer to the iPad before syncing.

    Note: You can prevent iTunes auto sync tendencies by going into Preferences in iTunes (on the computer). Select Devices, your device from the list, and check the prevent auto syncing check box.

    thanks I see them when I view the iPod section but as you say, once it plays one,
    it reverts back to Movies/Music Videos, it's not a terrible thing, but would be nice
    to have it go back to where you started ;)

    Again, thanks for you input!

    Oh well, can't win them all.

    I didn't think it would a good solution anyway. I have looked for better apps to play the music videos stored in iTunes. It comes up from time to time. No luck so far.

    I figured once I bought this one, the new styles would be out, oh in about 31 days
    after I bought it ;) as that was my luck with the iPod long ago, 45 days after getting
    that, they came out with the 120gig and would exchange it with your 80gig if you
    bought it within 30days, but, cross my fingers and knock on my head, it's still running
    very well now!

    I fund my 'toys' with my knife sheath work I do, for folding knives, so it takes a lot
    of cows to pay for my toys, other wise I'd not have anything as my day job's paycheck
    goes to the wife and family, BUT, this way there's no guilt associated with the toys ;) a very good thing!

    Cool, knives.

    I bought my first iPod, a first generation, on a friday. Saturday Apple announced the second generation, shipping immediately. Checked, but mine was already in the mail. Can't complain much. It held all my music and worked beautifully. It probably still works, if I could find it.
