Red face I'm slow - Album Art and Videos?

Ok, I'm new at this, as you may have gathered. I've been browsing around this forum for some time, and I was hearing reports about this fantastic rockbox. I decided to try it, and I must be missing something about it. I am usually excellent with computers/tech stuff, but it took me an hour to even get it installed.... So, on to my questions, and if they are answered elswhere, please redirect me to that link, I've searched and found nothing in the FAQ helpful-

1) I know rockbox supports MPEG videos, but where do they need to go? In a specific folder? What if they're on a microSD card?

2) I can't get the album art to show. I finally got it to work with the old firmware and WMP11, and then I switched and it won't show up.

So, yeah, as you can tell I'm not very familiar with this at all...

It doesn't matter where they are, just select the file in the file browser.

Here is a guide for using album art in Rockbox:

Also, please at least take a glance at the manual:

Default Thank You

Thanks, I tried to bring up the manual in PDF format, but the connection would time out every time. But that one works, thanks again.

The MPEG videos can go anywhere you can see in the file browser, but it has to follow the specifications shown on this page: http://www.rockbox.org/twiki/bin/vie...uginMpegplayer.
