    if you use the IMDB scan MP will download the coverart. If you didn't like that one, you could probably find it in the thumbs folder and change it for your own. Just make sure the sizes are similar. You can change the generic icons in the skin folder. For each of these you may also need to delete all packed*.* files in the skin folder that you are using.

    Placing a folder.jpg in a folder makes MP show this instead of the standard folder image.

    can you use something like this for example as the coverart for a movie ( in this case batman begins)

    http://www.imdb.com/gallery/ss/0372784/Ss/0372784/begins.jpg?path=gallery&path_key=0372784

    And you dont have the batman begins film file in its own folder but in a folder with the rest of your movies.

    a lot of recent movies i've seen on imdb seem to have these big covers now and it would be great to use them somehow in MP. As the small covers usually look crap in film strip view.

    Something like the vista mce recorded tv view with big coverart,
