Question is same as title. If it can be done in ffmpeg, it would be quite a help to include the command too.
Phew! Thanks again! I've seen you put great posters as covers in your encodes, which was why I originally even asked this. And again big thanks for the heads up about tvdb. Never even heard about it!i have a slightly complicated script for this which pulls episode metadata from tvdb
and adds covers but it can be done with a simple mkvmerge command, that is:
for %A in (*.mkv) do mkvmerge -o "out\%A" "%A" --attachment-name "cover.jpg" --attachment-mime-type image/jpeg --attach-file "cover.jpg"
to make things easier, you can save this command as a bat file (don't forget to change all % to %%)
and put mkvmerge.exe in path (google how to set path system variable if you don't know)
and then you can run it from any folder you want
tvdb is good source for cover arts
ask dedsec, he made something to do exactly thatI have a related question for this thread -- where can I actually find a reliable source of bd/dvd covers of each volume release?
For example, I extracted the covers for @dedsec's release of Alicization (which has 8 different covers that correspond with the 8 volumes) and reverse-searched them on various engines, but still could not find a consistent collection and most I found were not clean covers (had the side spine thing).
So yeah, kinda stumped and I have checked different tv databases to no avail...
There are some anime series I would like to add official covers to that coincide with the boxsets. Help?
