MovieIcon is a simple Mac application designed to automatically apply movie-poster images retrieved from the Internet as icons to your video files, helping you to keep your collection with the sleek style you expect from a Mac.
Easy to use. Just drag a file or folder into the window (or add it from Finder Services menu) and MovieIcon immediately will select the video files, search the movie title in TMDb, an open free movie database, and retrieve cover art information for you. MovieIcon uses the file name as title to search so you don't need to have any metadata in your video files.
The place to be. You can select the right movie if title search returns several matches. Your choice. Browse through the images found for a movie title and choose the one you want to apply to your file.
Taking control. No luck in your search?. You can type the exact terms to search till you get the desired movie, choose among 42 generic covers or even add your own image manually.
One click... or less. Once you have selected the desired image, all you need to do is click Apply button to have a nice file icon. You can apply the image to the current movie file or the whole batch of files dragged. You can even set the Apply images automatically preference to let MovieIcon apply the first image found for you.

This for me is a must-have piece of software. Simplifies adding multiple covers to complete TV series files. Never fail to add your desired art again. It uses the moviedb.org database. Should you not find your desired cover, just google it until you find what you're looking for and save it. Then click on end custom tab and add your own. This software is simplistic and just get the job done without fuss. Developer is very responsive. Well worth the purchase.
I Tried it in Demo Form.It founf the wrong icons for each and evey movie I had. I was somewhat disappointed with its performance.I know the developer is trying hard but for me it is an ineffectual application.
Can this application to export covers?Because a lot of people don't use Apple TV but different media players.
For example for Mede8er media players the cover's name is folder.jpg and for background with synopsis and info for actors,directors etc is about.jpg
Can this program do this?
I will buy immediately!
Doesn't seem to work at all for Apple's .m4v suffix. Not sure why. You can manually change the suffix to .mp4, use this, then change the suffix back to .m4v.
Developer should implement .m4v functionality since that Apple's default iTunes suffix.
