DVD Cover art in Media Center?
I've got some DVD videos (.IFO, .VOB, etc) under My Videos - each in their
own directories. They show up and can be played in Media Center.

How can I add cover art to replace the default covers provided by Media
Center?

RE: DVD Cover art in Media Center?
First, did you know there is a DVD gallery that you can enable through your
registry? (Alternatively you could use an app called My Movies from
http://www.mymovies.name/home.aspx)

For the registry change:
Registry key -
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\Curre ntVersion\Media
Center\Settings\DvdSettings
Registry value - ShowGallery
Registry value data type - REG_SZ
Registry value data - Gallery = enable My DVDs; Play = do not enable My DVDs

By default, the registry value data is "Play", you would want to switch that
value to "Gallery"

To have cover art show, you put a pic named 'folder.jpg' in the

example: C:\DVDs\movie1\video_ts (video_ts contains the IFO, VOB's, etc.)

You would put the 'folder.jpg' in the movie1 folder.

David -

I'd read about the registry change - and had it in place. It's definitely a
useful hack.
I tried the folder.jpg as you suggested, but that didn't seem to work. I
also tried posting in in the VIDEO_TS directory, but that didn't work either.
Have you tried this technique yourself under Vista? If it did work for
you, I wonder if the jpg has to be a specific size?

I don't offhand if you have to use any specific sizes, but if it helps, the
jpg's that I am using are all 350x500.

Did this just today--worked great, using Vista Ultimate. I put it in the movie1 folder alongside the video_ts folder. My jpg was 150X208.
