    I can't seem to get cover art to show up for tracks on the audio home, all of my music is tagged, has embedded cover art, and most times a folder.jpg in the directory. But so far, I've only had one track appear with art even though other tracks have at least the same amount of information and art. I must be overlooking something I think. Anyone have any suggestions?

    Have you also tagged the audio tracks with the cover? The folder.jpg is only used for album purposes as far as I know.

    @ge2301 yes, each track is tagged with the cover also. I think maybe this weekend I might move my whole music collection to another location and then after the database clears itself I'll try adding just one album back and see if I can figure it out that way. I do have a lot of flac tracks but that shouldn't make any difference should it?

    There should't be issues with flac, you can also tag covers for them.
    I had also a few tracks without cover a few weeks before in flac format. After tagging a cover and reimporting problem was solved in my case.
    As you mentioned give it a try and if it doesn't work you can come back here.

    So after a little testing with only 4 albums in the database I've found that I can get Album Art to show up in the Unplayed album section of the Audio Home.screen. But only if I have a Folder.jpg in the album folder. Still no artwork for Latest Played or Latest Added tracks even though every track has tagged front cover artwork embedded. I tried moving my mouse from one item to another in that area and got these corresponding log entries. I assume it's looking for cached entries for those files and failing?

    Strange, everything is working here, I just checked it again. Also in HomeContent all covers show up correctly.
    @henso any idea about the failure above?

    For flac? If yes, then that’s not currently support because of a resent change for mp4 tags.

    He has flac files. But I have also flac with tagged covers and I can see the covers also in HomeContent.

    I did make sure that one of the albums was all mp3s. But the others were flac. I'll continue on testing some things, maybe I'll discover something else.

    I was remembering wrong. What I was remembering was about video files. Audio flac, mp3 etc. should all be supported.
