    Do I have to get all the Movie Covers manually, is there any software to "speed" up the process.

    Stupid me.
    I thought I could drag in all my movies and go through one by one. It was trying to tag all my movies as Batman Begins.


    Got it working now but dreadfully slow. 5 minutes per film. I guess it's something I can do in the background.

    I think you can queue them up, but I haven't tried it. If you look at the folder where your movies are, you'll notice the program rewrites the movie file, probably to place the chapter tags. That's why it's so slow.

    edit: queuing works fine - just tag the first movie, open another and it is added to the queue. Click the write button and they all get updated appropriately.

    Also keep in mind that is basically re-tagging the entire film. Same thing happens when you tag a music file. It tags the whole file. So yes there is going to be a slight delay. Also if you are doing this over the network as opposed to doing it on locally there will be even more of a delay.
