    Movies no longer have title below it
    I load my own movies, which would previously show the opening scene and below it was the title. Now for some reason on new movies I transfer, a icon of a monitor/TV shows and no title. You have click it to open and see the title which is a pain. Otherwise they play fine. And the earlier ones still look the good way. It is just the new ones I load that no longer have the title beneath them. I use 1280x720 resolution and use quick time player to convert the movie from my camera. I have not changed the way I do it.
    How do get back to the way they used to be? Is it the new OS? I am running 4.2.1

    TV show has no title

    The Videos app on the iPad does not show any text underneath the image of

    a TV Show (unlike Movies). This is not a bug - it is a feature.

    ;)

    The workaround is as follows:

    First, download a picture of the title page for the TV show. Wikipedia

    usually has this.

    Second, in iTunes right-click on the episode (you can multiple select)

    and choose Get Info. Click on the Artwork tab then click the Add button

    and navigate to the picture file.

    Third, (re-)sync with the iPad.

    THANK YOU so much for the "artwork" suggestion. It works perfectly!!

    I asked, at the genius bar, and was told "there isn't a solution." We postulated that I could change the video to a music video and it would show up with a title. But that did not work. Your solution was excellent. Thanks.
