Hi All

I have a bunch of .avi files that i want to load onto a portable hard drive and connect to my WDTV. Is there a program or any other way I can add cover art (dvd front covers, tv shows) to the files? In the past I have used the excellent iSquint/MetaX combo for converting them into iPod format, but now that I have the WDTV (which will play .avi's) I don't want to have to convert them into .mp4 just to add cover art.

Any help would be appreciated!

iFlicks is great, but not free.

I don't think avi supports embedded artwork. :(

Not that I'd know, yet isn't Plex (http://www.plexapp.com/) a good candidate for all this and more.

plex is fine for this though does not work with the WDTV though you could try the beta firmware for the WDTV which includes movie sheets that does a similar job to plex though the WDTV cannot work with plex due to the embedded xml over http that plex uses to scrape tvshows though this is stored locally on a mac not on a WDTV though i belive you have to be running windows to use the editors and gnerators though i have not used this yet

For me - that was... incomprehensible.

Jaime - could you kindly impart your knowledge in the future, using punctuation and especially, full stops.

I think Jaime is using "though" as either a comma or a full stop. Does that help?
