    I think by from legal sources he was implying that both legal and illegal downloads include cover art in the file tags...not that forum members were pirates.

    Well the surprising thing is that the three fastest scans did have album art support...I really feel its down to the core technology behind them.

    For riderunner - best speeds were achieved using an external exe most likely because threading isn't possible with vb hence slower speeds using a dll. The speeds were still not as good as the top 3 due to the inherent overhead of IPC.

    For cf - using a jet database (Labeled obsolete by msft after 2003) has an obvious performance impact although not as bad as I would have expected.

    sd - i don't even think thats worth mentioning. I'll leave it at - i don't plan on using wmp for my music library anymore.

    Who said anything about it having to be a special file name in order for it to be used?
    Folder.jpg is technically a special file name. It is used by both the OS and media programs as a fallback for album art.

    Right. I was arguing the importance of tag-based-album reading as opposed to magic filename reading. Besides, I find that illegally downloaded music is usually also well tagged and often has embedded album art as well.

    +1 for tag-based album reading. I spend a long time tagging my files with lyrics, ratings, etc. Forget folder and file names, tags should have priority.
