Hey I currently have my video files stored on an external hard drive an I'm using vlc to play them. Is there anyway I can add these movie files to Front Row while reading them from my external? Or do I need to convert the video files into a format recognized by iTunes and store them on my laptops internal hard drive?
QUOTE Thanks

In the version I have, front row has a Video File that just links to my systems Video File in finder. It plays all formats, .mgp, .mp4, .dv, .avi..etc.

Everyone hates cliffhanger endings because..

Found my advice useful? Use the reputation button in the upper-right corner of my post!
