Apple Computer said on Monday that it has sold more than 1 million videos in the 19 days since it launched its video iPod and started selling TV shows, short films and a wider assortment of music videos.

Apple introduced the video iPod and started selling the TV shows and other videos on Oct. 12. at a splashy press event in San Jose, Calif.
