Default Media Center Video Thumbnails

I'm wondering if there is a way to use my own custom thumbnail images for videos in Media Center. It is currently displaying them as a screenshot from the actual video file, which makes it difficult to tell what video it is just by glancing at the image. Thanks.

Found the solution:

Just put your custom thumbnail image in the same folder as the video file and give the image the same name as the video.
