    Hello,
    I'm a long time user of KMTTG, and I love it. I have been feeding my iPod and iPhone for years!

    Fast forward to 2013, and I now would like to feed my iPad, but my iPad wants to display only a picture in the movie library, not the name of the show. As it turns out, you need to set a "Poster Frame" for every video that you put in the iPad, or else you won't see the right thing, and you'll never be able to tell what show you're potentially clicking on...

    I do know the "Manual" way to do this in iTunes, but I really would like to automate this as part of a KMTTG, ffmpeg, or Handbrake command.

    So... The question: Does anyone know any ffmpeg or handbrake commands (Or any other software, Mac or PC) that will set the Poster Frame of a video from a jpg file? Typically the "Poster Frame" is the first frame of the video, but I'd prefer to set them from a jpg of the show title.

    Well, I just fingered it out on my own...

    The answer... Atomic Parsley, the tool that's already used by KMTTG. Now to see if Kevin can incorporate that particular atom.
