i can give you my manual method. But it is only good for separating via folders and depending on the folder for the pretty picture.
Step 1. Know the title of your movie.
Step 2. Search that title at imdb.com Or amazon.com
Step 3. You see the thumbnails used by these sites? Steal them... by Right-Clicking and "Save image as.."
Step 4. The file will have a weird filename... you must rename it to "folder.jpg" for WMC to treat it like a "cover" rather than a normal picture. It tells WMC to treat that pic like it's an icon.. It should be all lowercase. If the file is jpeg change the extension to jpg.. It will still function fine.
Step 5. You must Give each Movie file it's own folder.
Example: c:/videos/Spider-Man  Divx/Spider-Man.avi
Step 6. Move that "folder.jpg" to the folder of your movie.
c:/videos/Spider-Man  Divx/folder.jpg
When you are done your list of movies will now be a list of folders that are made to look like covers.
