    Hard drive says I have 22GB of movies, but I don't have any movies on my hard disc???

    I am trying to open up more space on my harddrive. When I go to "about my apple" and click on storage, the display says I have 22GB in movies, but when I open up a finder window and click on movies, nothing is listed. Not sure where these movies are and how to get rid of them or at lease see what they are. I called apple care, they told me to reset the hard drive on spotlight and that this would recategorize all of my files, but it is still showing the same 22GB of movies. I have searched all of my files for movie file extensions, and still do not find any movies. What's up with this????

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.
    MacBook Air, OS X Mountain Lion (10.8.3)

    Do you not use iTunes for movies or TV Shows? What movie formats have you searched for? How about browser caches? Do you use anything like iMovie or Adobe Premier Pro? I'm not certain, but their project files may get listed as 'Movies' within these system listings.
