iTunes 4.8 manages movies?

iTunes 4.8 was released today. Get it at the usual place.

Apple's "What's new in iTunes 4.8" simply says: "Includes new Music Store features and support for transferring contacts and calendars from your computer to your iPod (requires Mac OS X version 10.4 on your computer)."

At first, it seems like Windows users are left out in the cold on this release. But drag any .MOV or .MP4 file into your iTunes library, and you'll see that you can finally play them from within iTunes. By default, they will play in the album artwork section.

You can click on the movie to have to have it pop up in a new window...

...or click on the fullscreen button to have it play fullscreeen.
