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.

There's a new version of MovieIcon out and I'll take the opportunity to add the following to my previous review...

Ricardo, the developer, has been extremely responsive and was able to implement the features I've asked for, in about a week or so...

Buy it just to try it (like I did)... if for some reason you're not satisfied, you can contact Apple and ask for a refund. So don't worry (as I've worried for the first months of using the Mac App Store) about not being able to download a trial...

This is the best app I've found for grabbing movie covers from IMDB and TMDb. It's beautiful, it's sleek, it's great.

I've been searching for an app like this for quite a while, so I'm pretty sure this is the best one there is.

This app is particularly useful if you like to have your movies in your own folder structure, instead of being locked into some media player's own structure.

...You're able to just navigate in Finder (with cover flow enabled) and easily see each movie's poster / cover. It's simple, and elegant -- like everything on the Mac should be. :)

@Jazzyguy This app does work very well for me. Contact the author and I'm pretty sure he will help you with your issues.
And, as I stated in another thread, the MAS store has refunded me several times already.

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.

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.
