How to Change the Video Type of Your iTunes Media

These are instructions on how to set the type of your iTunes video media as Movies, Music Videos, or TV Shows.

If you important a video file into iTunes it will automatically be placed into the Movies category. This is fine if you have imported a movie; however, if the video file is a Music Video or TV Show you must modify the video type so that iTunes utilizes it correctly. Otherwise when trying to play a Movie from your AppleTV or iPhone you will notice that the Movies category is cluttered with video files that are not Movies.

Step One
Launch iTunes by clicking its icon in the dock
