How can I fix incorrect video categories with the XBox Video application in Windows 8?

LolaBelle

It seems like the Xbox Video app in Windows 8 just tosses a lot of videos in the “other” category when filing them away. I have tried to find a way to correct this so I don’t have a library full of “other” videos (instead of movies in the movies category, for example), but I haven’t figured out how to change the video type for the files. Is there a way to do this?

As far as I know, the XBox Video app doesn’t allow you to change them. However, you should still be able to use zune software, which is what XBox Video is based on, to make the changes. You will need to download it from www.zune.net.
