    I am new here.
    been lurking for years.
    looked at the FAQ's (got lost)
    Posted in DVD RIP, after looking this is probably the best forum.
    A friend gave me some flintstonse avi files.
    each file has a pic. in the icon.
    how was this done?
    I se ImTOODvd ripper
    I have ripped many dvd and IFO files to AVI
    but the other day I ripped "trenity is till my name" Darned if there is not a picture in the icon!
    HOW did this happen!
    I can not make it happen again!

    I don't know about .avi file icons however there is a simply way to change the icon of any file. Simply right click on an icon and then click on the customize tab. In it you will find a button that says change icon and then just pic one! After, press apply and then o.k.

    Thanks but you did not understand my question.
    Maybe I did not make it clear.
    1st) Yes I can right click on any file and change the icon.
    Problem: This will change all icons in .AVI format and also not what I wish to do.

    What I wish, is to have a still picture of the movie as my .AVI file
    such as
    Batman Dark Night. I want a still picture from that movie or the DVD cover as my icon for that .AVI file

    Bambi same thing , I would like a picture from Bambi movie or the DVD cover of Bambi as the icon for that .AVI file

    I will tinker with your idea. Maybe there is somthing so simple I am over looking.
    I do this at work many times. some things are to simple . If that makes since. :eek:)

    well... That kind of works.
    I need to learn more about icons.
    I can make a folder and put a pic on the folder.

    but if I try and change the AVI file icon , I bump into problems.
    I googled "make your own icons in XP"
    I found
    open pic in paint
    open image , attributes
    change to 32 x 32 pixels
    save as .ico
    not much space to work with there (sigh)

    what do your avi fil icons look like?
    mine look like a film section. like 1 inch by 1 inch but the middle is a black square.
