    Unhappy adding movies to iTunes
    Hi!
    I need your help as I am new in "Mac world". I have many gigabytes of movies on my external drive and I want to add some of them to my iTunes, so I can watch them via Apple TV on my big screen. Because I watch them using Divx player, I have them all in .avi format. I tried to add one today by dragging it to itunes and.... nothing happened.
    Any advises how I can do this?

    Is there a way to do it without Quicktime pro? My QT7 does not allow me to do so.

    Specs:

    Using an App like Handbrake will allow you to convert them to M4V or another iTunes compatible format. If you're going to be a Mac user, you might want to ditch .avi and move to MPEG-4, it's a significantly better, more capable, more advanced and more modern Codec that is still under active development. .AVI has been dying for years.

    You can get Handbrake here: handbrake.fr/

    I convert everything to 'Universal' format. Usually looks pretty good on a 60". I'm having a volume issue (I like movies loud) but I think that is more based on my hardware setup.
