What about movies? As you flip through your movie collection using Cover Flow in iTunes, you’ll see a few gaps.
MovieIcon is the Mac app that does to your movie collection what album art apps do for your songs.
Just like those Mac apps that search the internet for album art to match your iTunes music collection, MovieIcon does the same for movies and TV shows. It’s all drag and drop (either one at a time or multiples at a time.
Drag movie or TV shows onto MovieIcon and the search begins. When it finds movie art, it gets attached to the movie file which is then displayed appropriately in iTunes Cover Flow.
If MovieIcon can’t find suitable movie art, you can choose from a few dozen generic (non-Apple) icons instead. The app itself uses the popular IMDb and TMDb movie and TV show databases to grab movie art and posters. You can also add your own movie art.
MovieIcon is decent and cheap and couldn’t be simpler to use. Drag and drop. The only real issue is most Mac users may not know exactly where on their Macs a movie or TV show file lives.
Hint? It’s not the Movies folder in the Finder. If you use iTunes, you’ll find most of those files in the Music folder, inside the iTunes Library folder.
