I'm rolling over my AVI's to MP4 for my new AppleTV. Is there a good program out there for tagging the movies with their appropriate details?

Also, I noticed iTunes will get "Album Artwork" for some movies and not others. I don't know if that's related though. I am doing this conversion on a Windows 7 box.

If you are asking for the name of a Windows program that automatically tags movie files with their info, then you should ask this question on superuser. – sentinel Oct 15 '10 at 20:35
Yeah, I'm definitely looking for an automated solution. Thank you for the redirect... – GreenO Oct 16 '10 at 13:57

You can do that in iTunes, select each file and click Get Info on the context menu. You can even tag several files at once if they share common info, such as the episodes of a series.

Also, you can add covers in the same manner. Just paste from IMDB or (as I do) from the iTunes browser previews

Thank you for the info Victor but anything less than full automation would be very tedious... – GreenO Oct 16 '10 at 13:58
