    When adding movies to iTunes that do not have artwork, I am running into issues adding artwork. I can easily change the icon in finder using the "Get Info" command but when dragging the mp4 file into iTunes the cover doesn't show up. When I add the artwork within the "get Info" option in iTunes there is at least a 1-2 minute delay before the album artwork successfully attaches to the file. Is anyone else having this huge delay, and if so is there a more efficient way to add the artwork? Thanks for any help.

    iTunes 10.6.3 (25)
    64 Bit

    the get info process is not necessary. just add the artwork in iTunes by right clicking the movie, Get Info, Click Artwork Tab and drop the file there.
    It will be a bit of a delay as it has to write to the full movie file (usually 1GB+) as well as add to the iTunes cache. This is normal.

    I just don't recall the extended delay from previous versions of iTunes. I assumed it was something in the current version.
