    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.

    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.
