Using video playlists on the iPhone/iPod touch

I also love the fact that all the videos in the playlist will play one after the other. I like to keep TV episodes on the Touch and prefer them to keep playing. And the ability to actually organize them into the playlists I want is also appreciated.

During my various attempts to get my playlist of videos to load properly I enable "Sync Movies". Later when I found this article and got my videos flagged as music videos, I kept getting told I did not have enough free space to load my videos. I knew my videos were less than 5 GB in size and that I had at least 6.5 GB free space. After trying lots of things I found that there was some duplication of files happening due to the fact that "Sync Movies" was selected, even though I had no movies or anything selected there. When I removed this setting, sync'd and fixed my playlists again, all was well. BTW, I was using a PC running iTunes, perhaps this was the issue. Dunno.
Short tip: make sure "Sync Movies" is not selected, or else you will duplicate some of the videos in your playlist. They will be ungrouped under videos and more storage space will be consumed.

Unfortunately, sometime in the past four months (probably after upgrading iOS to 6.1 or to iTunes 11) I've been unable to see the videos in my playlists except for a brief moment under the following conditions:
1.) Open a playlist containing several mp4 videos
2.) Press "Edit", then the "+" button to add one or more songs to the playlist
3.) Hit "Done" and now (still in edit mode) you can see the videos in the playlist.
4.) Hit "Done" again to finalize the playlist and watch the videos disappear again!
Apple needs to get on the ball with creating superior experiences with their software/hardware integration. Thanks for the tip of retagging all my movies as "music videos" as my playlists are full of the content that should have been visible the whole time (however now it's harder to manage my videos because they're now "music" and no longer show up in iTunes as "movies."
Cupertino better get their act in gear ASAP. The last time I had to do an "end run" around a system glitch like this I was using a PC running XP!
