Disk Space Consumption - iTunes TV Videos

I am in the process of buying a 60G V ipod. I am curious how much disk storage is consumed by say a 42 minute "Desperate Housewives" TV file. Also when you purchase the video clip on iTunes, do you have the option to set the bit rate to modulate the quality vs size tradeoff like you do on music files? Thanks in advance for the responses.

It will all depend on he data rate at which your movies (or purchases) are encoded. A 25 minute episode of Doctor Who targeted as a 100MB file has a typical rate of 540-560 kbits/sec. Using a 2-pass encode, the rendering on the iPod remains very sharp and crisp -- quite viewable on an SD TV, Thus, you should expect to put about 5 such shows on your iPod per 1G of space used. You can, of course double or triple this rate, but the increase in quality will be minimal as far as the iPod screen is concerned. Hope this is of some help.

  • Log file disk space consumption

    Do I need to care to any log files (excluding website access logs), like mail logs or anything else that could grow indefinitely and consuming much disk space ?
    How about the bayesian filter of SpamAssassin - does it have a maximum size limit or grows it forever ?
    Any other logs or files or whatever to keep an eye upon ?
    Currently I have made these settings on SA:
    FTP: Log anything (all checkboxes marked)
    Mail: Log anything at level "Information"; archive every one day
    Firewall: Log max. of 1000 packets
    DNS: Log enabled, level "Information"

    I looked into /ezc/weekly and it seems that this does already what I want, doesn't ? It seems that there log files are cleaned up so I feel that anything is okay as it is currently...
    Especially since I don't have an real idea which log files are missing there (and finding out their path, which is the hardest task
    I just want to prevent that such undeleted logs are eating my diskspace slowly but steadily.

  • IMovie won't share/export my project as it says 'not enough disk space' - how on earth do I get this movie onto a DVD?

    I really hope someone can help me please?
    I have a 16GB iPad and have created a really nice wedding DVD for my sister.  It consists of about 20 mins worth of video clips and 25 mins of images set to music with movement between slides etc.  I have cleared absolutely everything off that's possible from my memory and I can't seem to get the iMovie project off my iPad!  My storage says that 8.7GB is taken up by iMovie and I've deleted all photos from my camera roll as iMovie can run the project without them, it doesn't cope without the video clips though (tried that!)
    I hve now tried exporting to iTunes and it says I don't have enough disk space - I don't understand how it can't just lift the project off my iPad without having to consume yet more storage?  I have also tried exporting to camera roll trying 1080pHD - too big.  It started on the 710pHD and got all the way through exporting (around 30 mins) and then at the end told me I didn't have enough disk space.  Funnily enough, iMovie was only taking up around 6GB of space prior to this, so it's storing this failed attempt to export some how but I can't see how I can get rid of that.
    I am heartbroken that I've spent three months doing this and now can't transport it from my iPad by seeminly any means possible.  I don't want to just give up.  I've seen other threads that say 'go to my computer and look in the DCIM folder and it's there... but it's not.  All the video clips are there but not the actual project. 
    Any help anyone can give would be so much appreciated.  Is there a way I can do this without essentially having to give up on apple products and buy some video editing software for my PC. Which isn't a MAC by the way.  As you can tell, I was hoping to screen this movie on Christmas day for the family :-(

    Are any of your apps video players? Some app store apps contain a file you can't see which saves logs of everything you do. Say if you have had an iPhone for 4 months and watched 50 videos with a video player these 50 videos may have been copied to the log file inside the application and may be what is using up all your disk space. Delete all video player applications from your iPhone.
    If that doesn't solve the problem copy the photos to your computer and restore your iPhone with iTunes back to factory settings and when you have restored DO NOT "restore from back up" because that might restore whatever is causing the problem instead DO "set up as new iPhone". Once you've set up your iPhone sync apps, books music, photos...etc back to the device.

  • Disk Space: Other

    It is strange, but I swear that my disk space on my 30gb video iPod has decreased. I have had 3gb worth of space and now I'm down to half a gig. I have uploaded somew new music, but on the iPod management window on iTunes, it shows that over 2 gigs of space is used by "Other". I tried looking at my iPod in the finder window, thinking I might have dropped some stuff in there that is taking up some space, but it seems the most a folder is using is about 27mb. Strange. I can't find what is using that much space?
    Anyone else have this problem, or know how to find out what is taking up so much space?
    iBook   Mac OS X (10.4.8)  

    Other can be contacts, calendars, photos, album art, and anything put on iPod in disk mode. One way to clear things up is to restore iPod then fill it up again.

  • You are running out of disk space error message

    When i connect my iphone to itunes its continously tell me I am running out of disk space please delet some videos and photos and i have a ton of space available?

    Did you try to reset your phone by holding the sleep and home button until the Apple logo comes back again?
    Do you have an "other" section on your phone, bigger than 1GB? If yes, try to restore the phone to bring it back to normal size, it might contain corrupt data from an unsuccessful sync.

  • ITunes U video playback constantly freezes

    I have 64Gb iphone 4S with plenty of free space.  iTunes U video (a Yale course in this case) constantly freezes during playback.  The video is downloaded onto the iphone, not streamed.  I do not have this problem playing the video through the video app.  I would like to be able to use the iTunes U app.  Anyone else having this problem?

    Try updating to the new iTunes U app that was released today.
    If that doesn't work, try testing other Yale course videos and other iTunes U videos.

    For information about the Other category in the Storage display, see this support article. If the Storage display seems to be inaccurate, try rebuilding the Spotlight index.
    Empty the Trash if you haven't already done so. If you use iPhoto, empty its internal Trash first:
    iPhoto ▹ Empty Trash
    Do the same in other applications, such as Aperture, that have an internal Trash feature. Then restart the computer. That will temporarily free up some space.
    According to Apple documentation, you need at least 9 GB of available space on the startup volume (as shown in the Finder Info window) for normal operation. You also need enough space left over to allow for growth of the data. There is little or no performance advantage to having more available space than the minimum Apple recommends. Available storage space that you'll never use is wasted space.
    When Time Machine backs up a portable Mac, some of the free space will be used to make local snapshots, which are backup copies of recently deleted files. The space occupied by local snapshots is reported as available by the Finder, and should be considered as such. In the Storage display of System Information, local snapshots are shown as  Backups. The snapshots are automatically deleted when they expire or when free space falls below a certain level. You ordinarily don't need to, and should not, delete local snapshots yourself. If you followed bad advice to disable local snapshots by running a shell command, you may have ended up with a lot of data in the Other category. Ask for instructions in that case.
    See this support article for some simple ways to free up storage space.
    You can more effectively use a tool such as OmniDiskSweeper (ODS) or GrandPerspective (GP) to explore the volume and find out what's taking up the space. You can also delete files with it, but don't do that unless you're sure that you know what you're deleting and that all data is safely backed up. That means you have multiple backups, not just one. Note that ODS only works with OS X 10.8 or later. If you're running an older OS version, use GP.
    Deleting files inside an iPhoto or Aperture library will corrupt the library. Any changes to a photo library must be made from within the application that created it. The same goes for Mail files.
    Proceed further only if the problem isn't solved by the above steps.
    ODS or GP can't see the whole filesystem when you run it just by double-clicking; it only sees files that you have permission to read. To see everything, you have to run it as root.
    Back up all data now.
    If you have more than one user account, make sure you're logged in as an administrator. The administrator account is the one that was created automatically when you first set up the computer.
    Install the app you downloaded in the Applications folder as usual. Quit it if it's running.
    Triple-click anywhere in the corresponding line of text below on this page to select it, then copy the selected text to the Clipboard by pressing the key combination command-C:
    sudo /Applications/OmniDiskSweeper.app/Contents/MacOS/OmniDiskSweeper
    sudo /Applications/GrandPerspective.app/Contents/MacOS/GrandPerspective
    Launch the built-in Terminal application in any of the following ways:
    ☞ Enter the first few letters of its name into a Spotlight search. Select it in the results (it should be at the top.)
    ☞ In the Finder, select Go ▹ Utilities from the menu bar, or press the key combination shift-command-U. The application is in the folder that opens.
    ☞ Open LaunchPad. Click Utilities, then Terminal in the icon grid.
    Paste into the Terminal window by pressing command-V. You'll be prompted for your login password, which won't be displayed when you type it. You may get a one-time warning to be careful. If you see a message that your username "is not in the sudoers file," then you're not logged in as an administrator.
    The application window will open, eventually showing all files in all folders, sorted by size. It may take a few minutes for the app to finish scanning.
    I don't recommend that you make a habit of doing this. Don't delete anything as root. If something needs to be deleted, make sure you know what it is and how it got there, and then delete it by other, safer, means. When in doubt, leave it alone or ask for guidance.
    When you're done with the app, quit it and also quit Terminal.

    You should never, EVER let a conputer hard drive get completely full, EVER!
    With Macs and OS X, you shouldn't let the hard drive get below 15 GBs or less of free data space.
    If it does, it's time for some hard drive housecleaning.
    Follow some of my tips for cleaning out, deleting and archiving data from your Mac's internal hard drive.
    Have you emptied your iMac's Trash icon in the Dock?
    If you use iPhoto, iPhoto has its own trash that needs to be emptied, also.
    If you store images in other locations other than iPhoto, then you will have to weed through these to determine what to archive and what to delete.
    If you use Apple Mail app, Apple Mail also has its own trash area that needs to be emptied, too!
    Look though other Apple Mail folders like the junk mail and delete the mail that is in there. Look through your sent items folders and see there is any mail in there that can be deieted.
    Delete any old or no longer needed emails and/or archive to disc, flash drives or external hard drive, older emails you want to save.
    Other things you can do to gain space.
    Once you have around 15 GBs regained, do a search, download and install OmniDisk Sweeper.
    This app will help you locate files that you can move/archive and/or delete from your system.
    STAY AWAY FROM DELETING ANY FILES FROM OS X SYSTEM FOLDER!
    Look through your Documents folder and delete any type of old useless type files like "Read Me" type files.
    Again, archive to disc, flash drives, ext. hard drives or delete any old documents you no longer use or immediately need.
    Look in your Applications folder, if you have applications you haven't used in a long time, if the app doesn't have a dedicated uninstaller, then you can simply drag it into the OS X Trash icon. IF the application has an uninstaller app, then use it to completely delete the app from your Mac.
    Download an app called OnyX for your version of OS X.
    When you install and launch it, let it do its initial automatic tests, then go to the cleaning and maintenance tabs and run the maintenance tabs that let OnyX clean out all web browser cache files, web browser histories, system cache files, delete old error log files.
    Typically, iTunes and iPhoto libraries are the biggest users of HD space.
    move these files/data off of your internal drive to the external hard drive and deleted off of the internal hard drive.
    If you have any other large folders of personal data or projects, these should be archived or moved, also, to the optical discs, flash drives or external hard drive and then either archived to disc and/or deleted off your internal hard drive.
    Good Luck!

  • Videos Disk Space Usage

    Good morning,
    When I go to 'About this Mac' I see it says I've got 81 GB of videos on my Mid 2013 MacBook Air (OS X Yosemite 10.10.1), but I am sure I don't have that many, also because when I click on the videos folder in Finder it shows I've got about 10 GB of videos. I've deleted all my iTunes movies, even the folders on iTunes Media. How can I free this space?
    Thank you,

    If you haven't already run disk cleanup and be sure you get the temp folder as well.
    Now defrag the drive.
    Also, is your drive formatted in FAT 32?
    If you have XP you can switch it to NTFS without endangering your data.
    Now try again.

    it keeps saying running out of disk space need to delete some photos and videos but i already cleared out all my photos and videos and it keeps saying the same thing.

    Connect the iPod to your computer. Click on the iPod under Devices and iTunes. How large is the "other" category as shown in the colored bargraph? If larger than about 3/4 GB, restore the iPod. That large of "other" indicates corrupted files.

  • I am not able to update iTunes keeps popping up message saying no free disk space I checked and there is enough to support the upgrade but I cant figure out why it wont let me. Help anyone!

    So heres the deal, I updated my iphone and in order to put any music on it or even ringtones I have to have the most updated version of iTunes, unfortunately my macbook wont allow the update, I do have a lot of pictures and song stored on here but I have no documents I have deleted everything the only thing left on here is what the macbook came with. I checked and it says that I have enough memory so is there another reason I cant update. When I try and check for the update option in iTunes it says its up to date but I have version 10 something so I know its old, I haven't been able to update anything on here. Do I have to take it to the store or is there something that I can fix on my own because my warranty is up and I have nothing but problems when I go into an actual apple store.

    If you want to try to clear even more disk space see https://discussions.apple.com/thread/5872318?tstart=0

  • "Not enough disk space" when there seems to be (+ rapid memory consumption)

    [Note: I originally posted this in the iDVD section, but due to an answer I got there to another question and further conversations with my daughter, figured out this is probably an iMovie question?]
    I'm a newbie to iDVD and iMovie and Forums (my last Mac was a Performa 6360--still using it for the family budget). I got my daughter a MacBook as a graduation gift. She is using it to combine movie inputs from a wedding/reception that come from digital camreas and a couple of video cameras. We went to Flip4Mac to get the necessary software/features to import .wmv files (only way we could download one of the video cameras was by going from PC to Mac--can't remember if it was a Sony or Canon).
    Issue: When she tries to import vidoes into iMovie HD 6.0.3 which have already been transferred to her computer, she gets: "The file could not be imported: There is not enough disk space to import Macintosh HD/Users/julie/pictures/iPhoto Library/Originals/2007/Roll8/CIMG1442.AVI" [She says this is about a 4 min. clip.]
    Basically the question is how to get more room on her disk to import and to save? She seems to only be able to Save--she can't Save Project as an option because it says she doesn't have enough disk space (she's already deleted the Trash). Help says you need to have more than 400mb of free space or it gets difficult but the indicator shows 28.8GB free space left...so there seems to be some kind of disconnect?? (Or maybe we're talking apples and oranges?)
    [Even more disturbing, just in the last couple of days with only a little time spent on the computer, the 28.8 GB has dropped to 2.3GB--obviously there is something she is doing that she is not aware of or shouldn't be doing that is consuming memory at a rapid pace.] On top of that, she also gets the same error message when she tries to burn the project onto a disk using iDVD???
    I went through the first 5 pages of the forum and couldn't see a similar problem, but then I may have not known what to look for?
    Any help would be greatly appreciated...she's trying to give the DVD as a Wedding gift--somewhat belated.

    Hello Karstn Schluter,
    This is fm's daughter who is havin ghte difficulites. at the end you tell me to try to answer 1-8 so i will try.
    1- how can you tell if the avi is containing divx? or not?? do I need to just keep this in mind when importing these files
    2- I have not brought in an external drive. I did try making my laptop computer a harddrive so I could import my imovie poject to my eMAC at one point, but it was not allowing me to do that either. Because I had to have it in DVD form or something
    3- No I did not segment the internal drive....sorry How do you do that??? Right now I am trying to find out what is taking up all the memory and Hard Disk Drive space....i do not know how to do that either....Do you know how???
    4-Yes I know flip4mac is for wmv....I guess what that question was emplying was that I also have wmv files that I am trying to import to imovieHD and that is not working either...I can get my avi to get into imovieHD, but not my wmv. files
    5-THank you for the tip with the trash then another question to this one how do you delet projects that are taking up memory that are no longer in use?
    6-Thank you for the tip...so then ignore the not enough disk space.....how can you alter the disk space so that you can save the project under save project as and not just save project?
    7- Sorry my dad was miss informed I cannot import the wmv. files to imovie and I cannot import imovie to iDVD I only have transferred one and then all of the other files are not seen as movies so I can not import them?? Does that make since
    8- When we were useing the Sony Camera originally we could not import the video to the MAC because it did not have the correct firewire cable and it would not been read onto the MAC computer. So, we have to buy the flip4mac equipment so that I would be able ot download the inoformation to the computer by a wmv.file dvd so we are having difficulites trying to import that file.
    I hope these answers clear up the question a little bit more and sorry that your answers brought out more questions. Thank you very much for helping me. I was using a different program in my college class so changing to imovie and idvd has been a huge struggle for me. Thank you once again.

  • How do I move my movies from iTunes to a portable drive in oder to free up disk space?

    I have less than 10% of disk space free and often receive a message that my strat up disk is nearly full.  I therefore want to free up space by moving my movies to a portable drive.  How?  I want to keep the movies on my iPad, though.

    How do I move purchased movies from itunes to the icloud? 
    Delete them from the local computer.  Nothing gets moved.  If the content was purchased from iTunes it should be available for download again in the future.

    If the device is synced with iTunes on the computer and the content is deleted from iTunes it will also be removed from the device.
    Realistically, if you want to keep the content, keep it stored locally.  Purchase an external drive to store the content on.  Keep in mind that iOS devices are NOT backup devices, they merely mirror the content in the iTunes library on the computer.
