    Itunes 8 is showing all of my movies to have the same artwork. I have about 50 movies, and in grid or coverflow view, they all show artwork for "The Hurricane".

    When i go to get info on each indivdula movie, it shows the proper artwork, but that artwork does not show up in regular itunes views.

    Also, i stream my library to my appleTV, and appleTV shows the correct artwork as well.

    This is a new problem since upgrading to Itunes 8.

    Any ideas?

    RE Itunes 8 Movie Artwork Glitch

    For some inexplicable reason Apple decided to start using the Album title in determining what artwork to display rather than the artwork affiliated with a certain file.

    When you import a movie into itunes, the album defaults to something like "Video Album", so you probably have most of your movies using the same album title and itunes is randomly choosing the artwork from one of those identically name albums and displaying it for all. You need to copy the Name filed (or some other unique name) into the Album field and the correct artwork should show up.
