  • Feedback for embedded art?

    Hey David, there have been multiple requests to have CF support embedded ID3 album-art rather than the folder.jpg style. Are you planning looking in to this at all? I feel I am missing out on 50% of the new interface by just seeing that default "missing-art" picture all the time. (also, how to you change that default image (the blue CD thing on the white background)?)

    they're called audioart.jpg and videoart.jpg and located in:

    C:\Program Files\Flux Media\Centrafuse\skins\[skin name]

    Here's what I'm using..

      Thanks TJ, you 'da man! I hope David will support ID3 art. I'd hate to have to choose one album for each artist diesctory and figure out a way to batch-extract .jpg's from my ID3s.

        I think it should be an option to display either the album art view or just a text list view

          then you can't watch videos or see a non-fullscreen vis anymore...

              David: So are you looking into ID3 embedded art, or should I start looking into ripping my ID3 art to folder.jpg's?

                  Ok cool... I can wait, I just wanted to make sure it is planned because if it was a definate "no" then I would have to look in to extracting the jpgs. Good to hear it will be coming some day.

                    bump. please add this. with the view switched to album art mode in the new CF, it's impossible to tell what album i'm selecting without some serious squinting.

                    thanks

                        xbox media center has album art from id3. they actually are very astute w/their handling of media files.

                        maybe talk to them? they may have good tips?

                          does anyone know if this has been added yet ... and I just can't find it ... or has it still not been implemented ?

                          Cheers !

                            No, it has not. That's what the people in this thread were talking about.

                            But, I don't mind, because I've got my album art saved as folder jpg's.
