    secondary album art

    hi all,i want to include a parental advisory image in with selected albums hopefully to be shown in my audio browser skin when my music folder is browsed,but aswell as the standard album art,is there an object type i could use to achieve this?Any image format will do.Thanks

    oh, BTW,its for when my girlfriend is transporting our kids,so she doesn't play something inappropriate by mistake.

    Well the way album art works currently, there would be no way to display two disctint pictures simaltaneously. The way I see it you have these options.

    1. Use a naming convention that shows songs w/ adult content. Example, filename in ALL CAPITALS.
    2. Use parental Advisory label instead of album art.
    3. Make sure album art had parental advisory label on it.
    4. Use parenthesis in the file name, Example, "2Live Crew - Face down *** up (Adult Lyrics).

    J187 suggestions are well valid. The only other thing you can do is to add an extra folder with an album art image in it like:

    C:\Music\Eminem\Advisory.jpg
    C:\Music\Eminem\<Album Name>\<your mp3 files>
    C:\Music\Eminem\<Album Name>\<Album Image>.jpg

    That way she'd see the advisory image upon highlighting "Eminem" and she could hit "select" to play the album directly or browse two steps into the album to select individual songs.

    dosent most album art that is for explicit albums have the sticker on the album art also. I know a ton of my stuff has it. Maybe just make the album art bigger so she can see the label on it.

    Thats what I meant when I said Make Sure album art has advisory sticker on it. I was thinking the same, thing. You might be getting your album art from the wrong places or something, but ALL of my art has explicit warnings...

    Hmm, seems like we need a sensorship mode in RR.

    when set to true, any song / music video/ video, that has say '{adult}' in the title (something user defineable maybe) doesn't get played.

    Then we could go down our whole playlist and edit the titles accordingly.

    i wasn't thinking that advanced, i was hoping for maybe a line of code to support (album art (front ) and album art back then name the jpeg's accordingly.Yes most of my albums of this nature have there own warnings on their covers but not all and none that would grab your attention at such a small scale.

    something like this

    the album cover is much smaller on my lili 7"

    Just edit the image and overlay the logo on top of it. 99.99% of us don't care much about a secondary album art.

    There. How hard is it?

    dim strLyric as String

    If strLyric = "****" or "****" or "titties" then
    blnSensorOn = true
    End if

    look around! 99,99% of people don't like the same thing(thanks open source),i see it like this "if you don't ask the question you don't get an answer".
    You could of said "don't let your girlfriend drive your car" that would of been equally usefull.
