  • MP3Art Plugin - UPDATED 11-17-2010

    **** UPDATED ****
    11/17/2010 V1.5.0 - Fixed issue when non .mp3 file passed though

    Readme.txt:
    DESCRIPTIONS
    ------
    This RideRunner plugin reads EMBEDDED Cover Art from MP3 files and tells RR to display that instead of usual album artwork.
    Any skin that displays normal album artwork will work directly without any other changes.

    Enjoy,
    Guino
    Mitch

    EXTRAS
    ------
    "ONARTCLICKED" event is fired when clicking the album art indicator.


    NOTES
    ------
    This only works with .mp3 files.

      If it hits a file with no embedded album art, will it try to fall back to the art in the folder? Or just give up?

            Not sure whats different from guinos old one but this finally solved my days and days of lurking around.

            I tried everything to get embedded album art to show up correctly in lsx smoke 3.01 and it would work sometimes and then disappear.

            This works great!

            Thank you!

                It doesn't work right for me. I have Win7 32bit. I reinstalled the plugin twice and was able to register the dll fine with regsvr32 "c:\program files\riderunner\mp3art.dll". The album art just flashes for a second and then it says "no cover available". It was working for a minute or so and it stopped again. Any ideas?

                Thanks.

                  TRY latest RR, and use the CARWINGS_DYNAMIC_LITE skin as a test

                  and ps there is no need to mess with regsvr32, the installer is there for that

                    I tried it today and wasn't able to get it to work either.
                    I have RR 3/3/10 and tried with my custom skin as well as Carwings Lite on some MP3s that have the art embedded but not in the folder. If I open the MP3 in WMP 12 it shows the album art.

                      Maybe the type of art in the file. I've seen some files that have the art compressed inside the file -- those are not compatible with the plugin.

                      You can send us a sample file with an an art that doesn't work for us to try/check. Also, WMP used to save the art on the FOLDER (not in the file), I don't know about version 12 and I don't know if you used WMP to get the album art for the file -- I just thought it was worth to mention it.

                        WMP 12 saves it in the file. I know that because I was using it do get the album art for all of my mp3s because it's so easy then when I was done and it wouldn't work with the regular command in RR, I went into the folder to find out why and there were no images there. Then I opened an mp3 in WMP and it shows the art in the background. Unless maybe it saves them all into some random folder and just links it somehow...

                          The files it used to save were HIDDEN, so I'd advise checking the files with a tag application. I'll try it myself to check and let you know.

                          EDIT: I just verified it and like previous WMP versions it saves album art files as hidden files in the same folder of the song -- it does NOT embed the art in the file itself. It does however appear to cache in the images other than just in the files it saves (Probably in some database organized by filename). You can also double check it by opening winamp and check the file's properties to see if there's an embedded album art.

                            Thank you for the quick response. I have the latest RR and this happens with the default Carwings and the Elite skin that downloaded. It works intermittently though which is the weird part. Sometimes it shows fine and then sometimes it doesn't. I have tried the same albums so i know it worked at least couple times
