Hey there, I've got another quick iTunes related question I wonder if either of you or anyone else can answer... In iTunes (and possibly up to, it was possible to navigate through Movies, TV Shows, Music Videos and Podcasts in your iTunes library 'frame-by-frame' by clicking the appropriate forward / reverse buttons during playback or using the left / right directional keyboard keys. This meant it was possible to be very precise about which frame from the video clip would be used as the 'poster frame artwork' to represent the content in the iTunes library and Front Row application. However, since iTunes OR 8.2.0 [I can't remember which] up until the present version, this facility appears to have been removed or alterted in some way because when clicking the on-screen forward / reverse buttons during paused playback, the video clip does not advance by a frame; it just remains stationary. Tapping the left / right directional keyboard keys now seems to skip playback to the previous / next chapter or video content item in the library. In order to get a temporary workaround for this issue, I've had to install iTunes on the WIndows half of my Mac just to set the poster frame artwork for my videos, which I then remove from the Windows library and import into the Mac OS X iTunes library (currently 9.0.2). Although this is a semi-suitable solution, its rather inconvenient and to be honest, ridiculous that I should have to boot up Windows JUST to quickly edit the poster frame artwork of an occasional video clip to customise the appearance of media added to my Mac OS X iTunes library. So in short, can anyone please explain to me how to navigate forward / reverse through a video clip added to an iTunes 9.x.x library, 'frame-by-frame', like used to be possible in iTunes 8.x.x.x and earlier?

I have the same issue and it is SO frustrating. I would love to hear a resolution and work around, I can't understand why they made this change. It is a big step backward! Please let me know if get a solution/workaround.

Does anyone know if it is safe to update to 9.0.2 in terms of iPhone 3GS jailbreaking compatibility? I'm currently running iTunes 9.0.1 which I only anxiously updated to yesterday after much reading of forum posts over several weeks as to whether Apple might have patched it to prevent jailbreaking. Turned out things were ok and I used 9.0.1 in conjunction with PwnageTool 3.1.4 to jailbreak my iPhone 3GS onto OS 3.1.2. I'm always cautious about new iTunes updates, major or minor and like to reassure myself that Apple haven't done any 'sneaky tweaks' to iTunes behind-the-scenes to cause us jailbreakers' issues.

@musclenerd tweeted that pwnage tool works with iTunes 9.0.2.

Okies, thanks for letting me know. Now I can have 'the latest' iTunes version installed for a good while, that is, until the next update is released of course... =)

Anyone else updated and had problems adding artwork? iTunes refuses to add any artwork that I attempt to either drag or copy/paste.
