  • Embbeded Mp3 Art Plugin

    SEE: http://www.mp3car.com/vbulletin/rr-p...rt-plugin.html


    [UPDATE 12/06/08]

    -Fixed some issues with displaying Radio Art and Sat Radio Art

    [UPDATE 12/02/08]

    -ONARTCLICKED event added.
    -NoCover.JPG support and improvements made by El Camino and Sal R.

    Thread attachments updated.

    ----------

    I've been meaning to do this for the longest time, it was very easy to do, just had to find the time to test it propperly.

    Attached you'll find the plugin and the source, feel free to modify all you want and report any issues. Should work with embbeded JPG, GIF and BMP files only (May work with PNG -- GDI+).

    Read 'Readme.txt' for instructions.

    Works great for songs that are playing, but can it also be added to the audio browser?

    Ie. when I select an artist, it lists all the albums, but only ones with actual coverart jpgs show (when in albumart view mode). Also, once you go into the album to view the tracks, the coverart doesnt get shown either. Maybe use the coverart from the first mp3 in the folder if no actual coverart file is found.

      That's a feature from inside RR that can't really be changed that easily.. plus, it is already slow as hell to load the album arts as separate files, so if I was to actually open each file looking for art to save/display, it would take forever. Now I know there are tools out there to extract the art onto the folder, so it would be pointless to re-do it.. all I could possibly do is to make the plugin save the art file within the album art path when played so next time it will indeed display, but that defeats the purpose of leaving the art INSIDE the mp3.

          Fair enough Guino. It's not really a problem for me (as I like to keep cover art jpgs in each folder) but just thought I would point it out incase it could be done easily

            DOH! I spent a couple hours today getting images into folders assuming this capability would never come! My bad... O'well It was fairly easy, just time consuming.

            Thank you as always Guino for making it better!

              I still recommend saving art files separately, but who am I to tell users what they should or should not like.. I can understand using it for "compilation" albums, however I'm more likely to slap an image of the "compilation album" in the folder and most likely never use this thing.. hahaha

                last version of my plugin can do that...
                that means you tell the plugin the file with:

                loadalbumart;c:\music.test.mp3

                and in the label "nextalbumart" it will give you the path to the jpg or gif. After a certain time (parameter in the ini), it will show the next file. So you get a slideshow of the selected album (all picture files in folder and embedded albumart will be shown)

                please inform me about my listpospl and listposdl request. Thanks!

                  I don't think that's what he meant, he meant to display the art for the files while in the audio browser (art browse mode).

                  the individual list info is available on the latest beta, I thought I had told you about it already.

                  there are three label codes: PLPOS, DLPOS and PBPOS for each list type. From flash you can request those directly/immediately with fscommand("GETXXPOS"); and it will return one of the variable vars immediately without delaying execution. just download the latest beta and try it out: http://www.rrdownloads.net/BETA/RoadRunner.exe

                    oh, ic...
                    i thought he wants 2 see only the selected file or dir - for the albumart mode it will not work, thats right.
                    he individual list info is available on the latest beta, I thought I had told you about it already.
                    Thats really great! Thanks a lot, i will try it today...

                        This loads the first cover fine but doesnt switch when the next song begins. If I exit out of rr, the art updates correctly for the current song but doesnt switch on the next song.

                          Not really seeing the purpose of this. I know I'm tired but if you have mp3 songs and you have the coverarts in each folder do you need this? Is this suppose to get the coverarts if they don't exist??

                            Yes, it reads the cover art tag from within the actual mp3 itself if no cover art exists.

                              In that case it would be VERY helpful.
