    Does/Will FP show album art by....

    Does/Will/Can Frodoplayer show album art by having the album art in the MP3 id tag?

    I really hate having to go into my folders and rename all the jpegs "album".

    Thanks

    Yes. It will read from the ID3 tag if art is present.

    what about folder.jpg like windows XP does for thumb nails? All my art is saved this way because media player 9 created it.

    right now it looks for "album.jpg" in 1.09 this is a configurable field.

    is it possible to have it just look for any(or first) .jpg file that it finds in that dir also, my music lib was ripped by multiple players over the years and each one wanted to name the file something different.

    this would be great.. Also, for us that have several images per album, a small slideshow of all images in the current folder would be nice.

    @Bravellir yeah that's a good idea becuase when I download my albums from the FTP scene (I'm mean buy them from HMV) I get a front, back and cover jpg, so a slide show would be a good idea.
