    I have a question that I can't seem to find the answer for anywhere, so I'll toss it out here:

    When I import a video or movie into iTunes (v7.1.1) the frame that shows up in Coverflow for the selection is the very beginning or first frame of that video. Since in many cases this is a black screen, that's what I get in CoverFlow.

    Is there a way to scroll through the video or movie and choose the frame that is displayed in CoverFlow? Other apps, such as iDVD and Toast allow you to do this, so I'm thinking there must be a way to do it in iTunes. . .

    Thanks in advance,

    MD

    Play the movie until you find a suitable frame and then right click, set poster frame.
