    The new movie app can see the movie files that I placed on the XOOM easy enough but it shows a screen shot. Has anyone figured out how to use cover art instead? I have cover art already on the XOOM too, put it cannot seen to put them together.

    The Gallery app doesn't read thumbnails or "albumart" so screenshots is al it does.

    For 3.0 you could create individual folders for your movies, and place a JPG in the same folder, and Gallery would display whichever file is newer, so if you would copy your movies first, and your jpg's afterwards, it would display the jpgs on top of the video thumbnail:

    Unfortunately with the 3.1 update, Google broke it :(

    Now when you do the same, you will briefly see the jpg on top, but then the video-thumbnail is moved on top of it.
