  • album art

    In itunes I see my album art. But when I used road runner with omega or bmv2 most dont display. Any reason for this?

    I'm pretty sure that Itunes downloads album arts automatically for its own use, but doesn't mean other applications will be able to use it. Please take a look at this thread:

      i think, in intunes, you can ask it to embedd the artwork into the mp3 file
      then the mp3art plugin can use it...
      but the native itunes artwork, is stored in the itunes database and not avail for external use

          I am using tagscanner, and have managed to get 90% of the album artwork. I save each album accordingly but they still dont show in rr. I followed the step for the mp3art and some artwork appeard. each one is saved as a .jpeg. Any ideas. Also is there a program that will consolidate my music into specific folders. Somehow itunes started it but never finished it. Here is the program with song highlighted and rr playing song with wrong artwork.

            well, rr will show as albumart... a file in the directory of say the mp3 file
            and its type is set in rr.ini
            i see u mention ".jpeg" is that right? or did u mean .jpg

            coverfile=*.jpg

            in my case
            but i use mp3art plugin, which 1st tries to get it out of the mp3 file itself 1st, but falls back
            to the file based, like "cover.jpg"

            and all of my dirs are like...
            Artist\Album
            and inside folder "Album", i have "Album.jpg"

            which is my cover file..

                I am not sure, but some times you can just rename:

                album.jepg = album.jpg



                Also, I don't know why??? but I have had a problem with one or two songs in the album
                not showing the artwork, but the others did...for these songs I would look at them with
                "godfather" (mp3 file renamer)
                and these songs would have artwork embeded in the tag,
                once I deleted the embeded art for these songs, then they would show the
                artwork in RoadRunner

                  here is the verdict, after screwing up my library using diff programs to accomplish what i wanted I manually edited every song. Roughly 1500, did a little at a time and now it works great. What a PIA. What i did was used tagscanner to tag the songs and search for the albums and download the album art. Next i made folders with the diff albums in each artists folder then place the corresponding songs in their albums. Now just have to maintain it.
