How to make certain video files appear in Front Row
Authored by: Peachie on Jan 26, '07 10:03:34AM

As joshewah pointed out, if you have the proper codecs installed in quicktime, and have the video files under movies, the files will be seen and playable under front row without having to create any reference files. Now with this in mind, if you have your video files elsewhere, on an external drive, or network mounts(!!), simply create aliases to any network mounted video folders and put the aliases into the movies folder. As long as the drives or shares are mounted, the aliases (treated by front row gui as folders) will show all the video files on the remote drives!
Enjoy!

How to make certain video files appear in Front Row
Authored by: thomas tran on Jul 18, '07 08:26:43AM

Maybe an easy question, but i'm a mac newbie sorry.

I have changed the name of the Movies folder, and i lost the video clap icon for ex. So Front row does not go to the right place.

Does anyone know how to restore the original folders name?

Or can we configure Frontrow to look out in other places ?

Thanx
