use the Mp3Art plugin.
I use Rhapsody for all of my music and convert it with a program called Tunebite. They are all selected to include the album art but I think that its actually part of the mp3? If I play it with wmp or something its got the art for it but since it seems for RR and winamp you have to have the jpg in a separate folder I dunno how to add it for my music. I have over 2000 songs so I am not going threw and hunting the images for all my artist and putting them in there. What are my options here?
Also check out the FAQ I put together HERE.
Album Cover Art downloader (Link in the FAQ) is a fantastic little free program. It can download a selection of album covers in various resolutions, as well as save out the ones that are embedded into the album folder for you.
Thanks a bunch guys! I saw the plugin when I was searching but for some reason missed the part that it was for the songs that have it embedded(just what I need)..oops lol
Question on the instructions what does step 2 mean?
Nvm figured that out but it still displays nothing...hmm ima search the thread.
And again nvm..Got it! Works great!
Only thing is I can only get it to display the album art on the music page. I went through and added the line x,mp3art or whatever in all my skin files but it just randomly displays my honda image that is not even in the music folder?
actually i have an improved mp3art plugin...
i cleaned up the code a bit... i really need to post it but i keep forgetting
I just posted it
"Did you test it in carwings??"
Sun, Come shine my way
May healing waters bury all my pain
Wind, Carry me home
The fabric of reality is tearing apart
The piece of me that died
Will return To live again
Tunebite has an album art feature built in as well.

You need to put the X,MP3 in ONLY the menu.skin. This is the very first skin that is loaded, and thus loads the plugins from that skin. You need to remove it from all the other skins you put it into.
Secondly, if you are using a newer version of Ride Runner, the X,MP3 line is not needed at all. Just put the dll in the Ride Runner/Plugins folder, and RR will load it for you automatically. Just make sure you register it again if you move it.
Hmm still it only shows it for that one page. Any idea John?
wonder why you would not just use mp3tag program since it embeds the art into the mp3 id tag. its really easy to use and varifies your file names etc are correct http://www.mp3tag.de/en/ via Amazon etc.
Mp3tag supports online database lookups from, e.g., Amazon, discogs, or freedb, allowing you to automatically gather proper tags and cover art for your music library.
just a thought...
