    Just a question regarding coverflow on the iPhone. I know that when you rotate the iphone in the music section it brings up cover flow...

    Can somebody confirm if this is the case for TV shows and Movies... and if covers I have applied will show like they do in iTunes or wether it shows a preview still from the movie.

    Thanks in advance.. all you lucky iPhone users :)

    Thanks for the reply.. so basically for iPhone use, there is no point adding album art to tv shows and movies??

    I can't change the image. Normally in iTunes i can play the file i want and drag an image to the "Now Playing" window to specify the image i want to display but on video the "now playing" window IS the video.

    Attached is a quick bad photo of an example of what i mean. It's the excellent GeekBrief.TV podcast

    aarhhh see that could be a difference as the "purchased" items have full cover art but not the "free" or converted items .

    Interestingly enough , that'll be a NO !

    I added some coverflow to Prison Break which iTunes sees. Synced the phone and a few things happen. On "Song" mode and cover flow while the podcasts are all their my Prison Break has gone.

    In video selection Prison Break appears with the new album art, however rotating the iPhone does NOT bring up a video coverflow screen. Interesting.
