    Thanks for the replies. I don't need iPod compatibility as I use my laptop to sync my Jesus phone. I got Songbird installed and it looks like what I'm looking for. I have a bunch of movies on a hard drive. What I'd like to do is be able to browse and watch the movies using cover art. I had a few questions if I may. One, the movies I have cover art attached to them, but when I click on them in Songbird, then appear in the lower left, like this:

    What I'd like is for the cover art to appear in the middle at the top. Was there something I missed. I tried a few other views like coverflow and grid, but they did the same things. I know this is going to be a real stupid question, but when I play a movie, the sound works, but I get no picture or pop-up box displaying the movie. I'm sure there's an easy answer to this one. Lastly, any way to get rid of all the tooltips when I mouse over stuff? Thanks for any help.

    for the album art you can always try mediaflow instead..
    its an addon for songbird
    for the movies try windows native media support..

    I think I used coverflow when I meant to say mediaflow. I tried that and grid for viewing, but they're still stuck in the corner. They're just plain old Mp4 files if that makes a difference.
