    Album art enbeded into ID3?

    So i've been trying to find a front end actually still supported to switch to from Frodoplayer but I always seem to run into something that keeps me from wanting to switch, tried installing Riderunner however I can't seem to get it to properly work with album arts embeded in the ID3 tag and that's how I have my library set up cause that's a standard among any MP3 player out there including winamp which Riderunner uses, but I can't get it to work, I even tried the plugin for it but no go, well it partially works, but not fully, seems to only work when every file in the folder has the same album art, if each song has it's own like NIN The slip for example it doesn't, is there any way to get this to work correctly?

    the skin that you are using has a lot to do with this,also you said that you tried the mp3Art plugin, to use the plugin is a matter of registering the dll, then use "AlbumArt" indicator, thats all, latest version has been improved and updated for RideRunner and RoadRunner.

    Right now i'm using the default skin (Carwings_Dynamic) and I did register the dll and it does show up as enabled in the plugin manager.

    That's how I just added my album art, and I'm running DFX4 on RR.

    I did try DFX4 but didn't have much luck with that either, it wouldn't even build the music database actually.

    How exactly do I go about doing that? the thread with the albumart plugin didn't say anything about customizing, just registering the dll and enabing the plugin. Carwing does use albumarts as well, but only as a jpg in the folder, if that's what you ment by not using it.

    you can use the skin editor or even notepad can help,
    i.e. open "audio_player.skin" an look for a line like this,

    Code:
    I,632,81,165,169,"AlbumArt"
    RR is a great Front End, and to get the most of it, you need to understand the basics about customizing it. if you want to get this working right out of the box try another skin(you will need to go over the installation process), there are a lot of nice skins out there, not just 2 or 3, give them a try, and good luck.

    you know what

    J command will pickup the albumart!
    it falls back to if no picture mentioned to use albumart

    no need to edit skin

    just drop mp3art, into plugins dir (to be nice in its own dir)
    and register it...

    done
