Not working. Here's what I'm doing: Plug iPad into Mac Pro, iTunes launches. Select iPad in left iTunes column and then click Movies tab top of iTunes page.
In Sync Movies I see old movies that are no longer on my hard drive and ones that are and in my Movies folder that I want to delete.
If I select a movie I want to delete that is or isn't on my drive by single click, the movie shows a blue border around the thumbnail, but under Edit, Delete is grayed out.
If I control click any movie, nothing happens.
If I check the checkbox, Revert and Apply appears at the bottom right of iTunes window, but that not what I want.
If I delete a movie in Finder, the movie still shows up in iTunes, Sync Movies, even if I quit and relaunch iTunes.
So no matter what I do, I can't get movies that were once in the Sync Movies / Movies box.
If I click "Movies" under my iPad in the left column of iTunes, I only have a couple movies there. If I uncheck them in the Movies tab, then they will no longer show in my list in the left column after sync finishes, but the movie still shows in the movie tab and like said above, nothing I can do will remove the movie(s) from this window. Even deleting from my hard drive.
So I assume the title is in the Library?
I have a similar issue except the movies are showing up in the ipad movie list but not in the itunes movie list. I've tried everything I can think of to get rid of them and they simply will not go away. I've removed files from the library section on the hard drive under itunes and still they show up...and if I tell the ipad to sync all movies they show up on the ipad. If I delete them on the ipad they still show up int he list and sync the next time I connect.
Itunes has continued to be a huge pain in the butt with the synch.
If you are on Windows try this.
1. Close iTunes
2. Go to C:\Users\<USER_NAME>\Music\iTunes
3. Delete everything
4. Start iTunes
This should remove all knowledge of iTunes about your music, movies, apps - all lists should be cleared as iTunes was installed the very first time on your PC.
My personal view on iTune is pretty negative. iTune designer's view on user experience is in fact software design flaws... just look at how the backups work or how it doubles the contacts in your iPhone after it synchs with Outlook or the tools it offers to delete an item or the lack of drag&drop features when I need them. Fortunately, I have found permanent solution for iTunes - run on Linux... next step is to use Android
On iTunes, Click on view - Choose movies. Now choose home videos, if your movies are stored under home videos. If you want to delete a single file - right click on that and go down to delete and then confirm delete.
Cmd + space bar allows you to choose multiple files. Once this is done, right click on any movie and go down to delete and then confirm delete. Now go into the trash and delete from the trash.

Pretty sure the original poster sorted this out almost 4 years ago
But he wants to be absolutely certain.
View -> Movies and deleting them worked... but I had more... then I found out that some Movies had been classified as "Home Videos" :-)
I deleted them too... now I cannot even see "Home Videos" in the menu, I'm not sure how I got there... probablythey were in View -> More
Anyway, problem solved for me, hope this can help!
