Yeah i wasn't sure if that would help, if you do figure something out I'd like to know how you did it. sure seems like there should be a way to do it. good luck.

as mentioned earlier once you find the cover art you want to use as the icon put the movie file and the art file in a folder named for the movie. rename the art file to "folder.jpeg" you dont have to edit any registry settings this alone will tell it to display the cover art as your icon.-

i suppose you could try going into the properites of each file and replacing the icon with the cover you want to use but i don't know that it will stay that way or do what you are trying to accomplish as i've never tested it. i do know the way i listed works, it'll show up as a movie poser rather you are viewing it through MC or explorer.
