    It would be awesome if a cover image would be saved as well. CloneBD shows it at the beginning. That would be great for Media Portal etc.

    In what format would it have to be? Any naming convention?

    Would be nice for my Plex too, don't think it requires any specific filename or extension. JPG would be fine.

    Thanks Pete :)

    I use Media Portal 2 but Media Portal 1 uses a cover manager:
    Unfortunately it doesn't have all covers but it's possible to get front and back cover.

    I suggest to let the user define it in a simple way, maybe with a wildcard:
    - simple input field for the filename (e.g. %title% as a parameter which is replaced with the movie title; people then have the possibility adding a prefix or suffix like "HD - ").
    - format (jpg, png plus whatever)

    That should cover a lot. Usually it was always cover.jpg in the folder where the movie was ripped into. In case of a DVD it was in the same directory as the AUDIO_TS folder.
    But if you have a single mkv or mp4 file the user should have the possibility of individual cover names.

    That should "cover" the most ;)
