    Do you use MetaX to tag your movies? You can add artwork to your movies that way.

    Or you could press CMD+I on the Movie and click on the artwork tab and drag artwork into there.

    Not sure if Control+I does the same thing on windows (I believe it does), but just right click and Get Info.

    You can get the images for most movies on IMDB (http://www.imdb.com). Find your movie, and then the DVD artwork should be to the left of the title on the page.

    You should be able to find what you looking for here

    http://findmycover.com/

    as for adding the info just right click on the file initunes and click get info ( windows - properties maybe? ) and it should open a popup window where you can add all kinds of info and attach an album cover.

    You people should read the other topics in MacRumors - the itunes one in particular.

    Cause if you did you would have known about the official and photoshopped movie art threads which later got compiled into a full blown website - www.getvideoartwork.com

    I've been part of one of the biggest artwork threads on this site, and have yet to see a post about that website. So bring down the arrogance a bit and just kindly point the guy in the right direction.
