Windows 7: Windows Media Player 12: Library display of DVD art

Windows Media Player 12: Library display of DVD art

Hello all...

I apologize in advance if this question has been asked (and answered) previously, but I didn't see it anywhere.

I am wondering if anyone knows how to get DVD cover art to display with videos in the tiled or icon library display in WMP 12? I have a mix of .avi and m4v files in my video collection, though I'm slowly trying to upgrade it entirely to m4v. Nonetheless, many of those MP4 files have embedded album art, so I was wondering if anyone knew how to get these videos to display the art.

Ideally, I'd love to have it displayed for the .avi files as well, but I realize that might not be practical given the limitations of the metadata in those specific video files. Thanks in advance!
