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:

I found the answer. The files were downloaded, and must have had some sort of corruption in them that passed the other players I tried them in, but produced the green bar in the TVSeries plugin. After downloading the files again, the problem went away. Thanks for your help.

Of course this would be the best option, but I guess it’s not that easy to integrate external players into MP2. It was somewhere discussed, but I could not find the related thread.
