album art files (1 Viewer)

I know that the mp3 player uses files called folder.jpg to determine cover art for mp3s. Would it be possible to also use cover.jpg or, even better, to expose the filename used as a setup option?

I would like it to pickup any file with a .jpg extention

All my Album art is named after the album itself, one in each album folder. I don't like the hard-coding. Would save me a bit of work
:wink:

I think it's best then to do what foo_looks does - choose the first .jpg that matches a few predetermined formats: "folder.jpg", "cover.jpg", "front.jpg". If not available, just choose the first picture, since that's all you can do.

Is this on some todo-list? I'll really like that function!
Windows even does it in the Explorer.

Have to disagree with you all, explorer automatically looks in a folder for "folder.jpg" and if it finds it, will use it as the folders icon. If the directory contains images, it will give you a small preview of up to 4 of the images as the folders icon, but thats not the same thing.

Many programs follow the "folder.jpg" standard, i would suggest you just rename your files to folder.jpg, then they will look prettier in explorer as well as MP :twisted:

VLC does read the ts files but the TV's remote does not allow to control basic VLC functions like FF or FR or pause etc... Tried 1-2 other apps, even...

Many thanks for the answer. So far I've used Logitech's Harmony hub. This allows you to control all components (including the media portal). I have now contacted the Sofabaton hotline. It should also work here like with the Harmony. Unfortunately, not all of the IR codes are correct. You can also learn commands here. But that doesn't...

OK I solved the problem. I ran another import on 2 new albums and this time the Album art was successfully grabbed. I had been messing around prior with restoring AudioMetadataExtractor.dll in both the MP2-Client and MP2-Server directories under 'Program Files (x86)' from my MP2.3.0 backup but the import wasn't working but when I...
