    Album Art for StreetDeck

    StreetDeck will recognize album art for music files in a number of ways to support a wide variety of ways you may maintain your album art in...

    First off it will NOT recognize album art embedded in the mp3 files itself. This is done for performance reasons and is one of the only unsupported ways.

    Second, album art will be copied whenever music is ripped from a CD or thumb drive through StreetDeck.

    The following, in order of precedance, is how StreetDeck will read album art:
    1. By GUID
    Every song in a windows media player database uses a globally unique id to identify the album. When media player downloads album art from the internet it will save the art to a .jpg file that is hidden, placed in the album's directory, and named after the GUID. StreetDeck will attept to read this album art for the song so if you manage all your music with media player, and copy the entire directories over to your streetdeck music folder, the album art will be recognized.

    2. By Name
    If there is an image file (can be .jpg, .png, .bmp, .gif, etc.) with the same filename, differing only by extention from the music file, it will be used as album art for that file. i.e. the art for "Linkin Park - By Myself.mp3" would by "Linkin Park - By Myself.jpg"

    3. By Folder
    If there is a file called folder.jpg or AlbumArtSmall.jpg in the same directory as a music file, it will be used as the album art.

    Album Art Conversion

    A utility is now available for automatically extracting album art embedded in mp3 files and converting them to a format StreetDeck understands.

    The StreetDeck Album Art extractor will extract all album art embedded in mp3 files and save them as PNG files with the same file name as the mp3 file, but with a .png extention instead of a .mp3 extention.

    To use, simply run the executable, if StreetDeck is installed, it will recursively run through the mapped StreetDeck music folder and covert all mp3 files in it. If StreetDeck is not installed,it will prompt for a root directory to perform the conversion on.

    To extract files from a path other then the StreetDeck music folder,
    run with the -browse command line option. i.e.
    "C:\program files\StreetDeck\StreetDeck.exe" -browse

    Special thanks go out to Konnichiwa for contributing the code that made this utility possible.
