Thank you. I am new to managing movies in ITunes

I see the discussion going on about where to get high quality movie poster artwork.

My question is:

Once you get the artwork, how do you get it attached to your movie (.mp4 file) in the Itunes database. I'm looking everywhere and can't see how to do it. There are settings for music album artwork but I can't find the same for the movies.

Any help would be appreciated

if you're just adding the artwork, just select the movie, get info and then paste the artwork into the artwork tab. if you want to tag other fields, i use metax.

I was looking for a Get Info type option but didn't find it.

Now that I know what I'm looking for I'm sure I'll find it

Thanks

I've added artwork for a movie I ripped from the DVD, and it shows up in itunes.

But on the Apple TV 2 it still shows the original thumbnail from the ripped .m4v. I've tried both .jpg and .png for the artwork.

Anyone know why this is?

From my experience, if you add artwork in iTunes AFTER having gone through the Apple TV 2 menu and seeing the old artwork (or thumbnail), the Apple TV 2 will remember the old artwork and never show the new one.

The only workaround I know is to go to Settings on the Apple TV and reset it. This is annoying, and means you'll have to set up your network, Netflix, iTunes ID, etc. all over again.

If anyone knows something easier, let me know.

Well I guess you could remove the movie from itunes and then add it back. Anything to force a refresh of the cache of that movie. It would be nice if there was some type of refresh button.

For anything that is a High Def rip I have been getting artwork from Blu-ray.com

Find your movie, click on it and then click on the "Large:Front" link.

They have huge high quality BD case artwork posted on most things (not all).

This is where I go:
http://www.impawards.com/

They have multiple versions of most movies. The images are large. They even have old original theater posters for most vintage films as well. Try it.

I know that this is an old thread... Just putting information here incase anyone gets directed here like I did and finds that some of the links are not working or not as good as other resources.


I use these two to get my artworks:
http://www.valkae.blogspot.ca
http://www.movie-poster-artwork-finder.com - the search sucks on this one so run the search then use cmd+f to search the results.

Both give High Quality iTunes Artworks.
If I can't get one from there (or I don't like the iTunes ones) I just go to google images. Sometimes Amazon as well except they usually have to many badges on their covers

I have used getvideoartwork.com and http://bendodsonapps.com/projects/itunes-tv-artwork/ for a while now. Both are useful.
