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.
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.
