    so I have been ripping my personal dvd collection to wmv10 format so I can play them on my xbox and now the same files work on my phone...

    my problem is this when you go to the gallery and select videos it shows a square black or green icon and a play button but there is no title.

    is there a way to associate a thumbnail to the video so I can scan my dvd cover and create a picture..

    currently I am just using the file browser and navigating to my movies directory and selecting on whatever movie I want to play.

    but I am sure that there must be a way to utilize the gallery so I dont have to navigate through the file browser

    Not with Gallery.

    It creates a screenshot from the video somewhere between the 5 and 15 second mark (random) and ignores things like MP4 tags or "album art".

    There are plenty of video players in the market (Act1 for example) that do display titles / filenames, but unfortunately gallery does not.

    thats a shame... well I guess I download even more apps to replace the pre-packaged ones.

    Thanks for the reply :)
