Is anyone else having issues adding artwork to movies in iTunes 9?

I can still add artwork to mp3's just not m4v! Grr

EDIT: I can only add artwork to movies if I play the file and skip forward a bit, then add the artwork!

So, when you do a Get Info on the movie file, and click on the Artwork Tab, you cannot either navigate to the artwork to add it

OR

Drag'n'drop it from the location on your Hard Disc onto the Get Info ~> Artwork page ...

Nor can you drag'n'drop it onto the Now Playing window at the foot of the Source Column?

To be perfectly honest ... I wasn't even aware that one could even add art to a movie or tv show file :)

I add them to my TV shows without any problem. I import a season. Group it, and add to the artwork panel. No trouble there.
I would try to copy your artwork, right click, get info, artwork, click on the panel so it has the blue highlighted line and paste.
I just tried it then and it was fine.

Kerstetter.net - MetaX (http://www.kerstetter.net/index.php/projects/software/metax) will do it for you and allow you to fill in all the other tags while you are at it :)

That worked perfectly..'Mooooo'

Thanks :-)

EDIT: It fixed the album art, BUT, now the movie is playing black and no sound!!

Back to the drawing board, and hello TimeMachine!

iFlicks is SO much better:
Manage your Video Collection with iTunes | iFlicks (http://iflicksapp.com/)

Give it a try. I migrated from metax, never looked back.
