I've got a laptop that has a fairly small hard drive, so I'd like to keep my movies on something else. Is it possible put movies on an external hard drive and sync the movies onto my phone from there?

Make sure that your external hard drive is plugged in before you start up iTunes. Otherwise iTunes will default to your hard drive on your laptop, if it can't find the external hard drive. If that happens, go to organize library and consolidate. that will copy everything back to your external hard drive

Good stuff to know, I'm about to add an external to my macbook and keeping my movies like this will be a big help.
