Lifehacker The newest version of Apple's media player, iTunes 4.8, now supports video and syncs calendar and contact information to your iPod. In addition to iTunes' superior music library management (fast search through multi-gigabytes, ratings, Smart Playlists, etc), now you can drag and drop video files onto iTunes and add to playlists, convert to MP3 and assign ratings. iTunes can play the video file (Quicktime only) full screen (use the button on the lower left hand side) or within the song artwork panel.
