MovieIcon is the easiest way to get a spectacular view of your movie collection. Just drag video files into this simple app to make it search its titles in the Internet and change its bored file icons by actual movies cover art. Your video collection will look awesome now, making more pleasing, easy and fast to find out any file. MovieIcon brings the eye candy of a Media Center together with Finder simplicity. Don't miss the spectacular icon coverflow view! You can even embed art to compatible movies so it can be shown when added to iTunes / AppleTV (Lion and later only).

The app uses IMDb and TMDb databases to automatically hunt down all of the available posters for your titles, whether they’re movies or TV shows.

Occasionally, there isn’t a poster to be found for a movie or television show. That can happen for rare titles. Nevermind. Just use one of the provided generic pieces of artwork, or drag your own custom cover from a web browser or Finder. This is also the perfect solution for personal videos that you’ve created yourself.

The easiest way to check MovieIcon power and simplicity is seeing in action. Please, visit to find screenshots and videos.

Ratings and Reviews


It’s awesome! Does exactly what it says. Great value too.

I mostly watch my movies on my Western Digital TV Live Media player and use its thumbnail mode to show movie posters in its browser. I used to have to labouriously find the poster I needed, scale it in photoshop, rename it and copy it to my hard drive.
With Movieicon, it automatically finds poster art for most movie titles and embeds that art in the movie file. That’s great for finding my movies in Finder, alright. But my Western Digital won’t show those titles with the embedded art. It wants a separate jpeg named the same as the movie file. Well, by dragging the art that MovieIcon has found into Finder, it automatically adds that jpeg to my movie folder. It’s exactly what I’ve wanted for years!
Occasionally, especially with TV shows, MovieIcon won’t find relevant art but that’s not a problem. You can drag your own art into the program, even direct drag and drop from your browser!

I highly recommend MovieIcon.


Awesome App

After strugging to get movie posters to save correctly in iTunes 12.2 (using Command+I and selecting artwork wasn’t working for me after using either Handbrake or MP4 Tools), this little app allowed me to add the poster directly to the file before importing the movie file into iTunes. This preserved the poster so that all my movies in iTunes now look like they should. On top of that all movie files now have their correct posters when viewed in Finder as well. Highly recomment this app.


Easy, Effective, all-round awesome app!

This app works perfectly, and makes applying cover art to all your video files a breeze! Great user interface, quick and smooth to use. Highly recommended!
