Best answer

audio|acacia works with audio only.

Any type of video streaming will fail as video streaming is not supported by audio|acacia nor is it in the scope of the project.

To remove the Movies and TV Shows from appearing in the 'Audio Sources' list in audio|acacia:

  1. Open iTunes and go to 'Preferences'.
    Windows: Edit > Preferences > deselect Movies and TV Shows > click ok.
    Mac: iTunes > Preferences > deselect Movies and TV Shows > click ok.
  2. Close iTunes and now the Movies and TV Shows sources will be hidden from your Audio|Acacia audio sources list.

Note: Doing this will hide the Movies and TV Shows from your iTunes library as well.

Just to clarify: audio|acacia is able to play the audio from many video files, but it wont display the video.
