    Hi -

    I've been using AnyDVD for many years. I'm trying to clean-up the backup collection's cover art. Some DVDs have good resolution cover art, some have poor resolution cover art and others have none. I doubt this is an AnyDVD bug or deficiency.

    I'm currently using a Netgear EVA9150 for playback, which displays the cover art.

    I'm looking for a relatively simple way to add or update the cover art.

    Many years ago, I had a tool for doing this, but can't find it now. In a PC GUI, you opened a file or folder containing the backup, found a good cover art file and dragged/dropped it into a pane in the app. From then forward, the EVA displayed the updated cover art.

    So, I'm looking for an app for my PC or Mac that can edit the cover art in the VIDEO_TS folder.

    Along the way, can anybody tell me which file in the VIDEO_TS folder contains the cover art. BTW, it has nothing to do with a .JPG file in the folder. None of the movies for which cover art is correctly displayed have a .JPG file in the folder, therefore, it's embedded in one of the .BUP, .IFO, .VOB files. So please, no suggestions to create a .JPG file.

    Thx - Bob

    Hello this is not an AnyDVD issue, So I am going to move it to the General Chat section. Thanks.

    It wouldn't be in a BUP or IFO file because those are probably too small to contain images. Plus, those contain the navigation commands for DVD playback, so you wouldn't want to add extemporaneous information to them which might confuse an older player. They would then have to be in a VOB somewhere, but those generally only contain audio and video. Still images would only be present in DVD menus that have no motion in them.

    Most DVD's I've seen that have cover art on them are contained in a folder in the root directory called JACKET_P.
