For the icon (or cover art), just place an image in the folder called
folder.xxx.  It supports most image formats.  The theme will look for that
first before using cover art from a video.

As for the background (or fan art), I believe that is a theme specific
thing.  I could be wrong.  I actually always modify my themes to never show
any background fan art.

Hope that helps.
