Regarding the problem that foobar shows 'multiple items' when selecting an album that has the same cover for all the songs in it, because they are stored in tags.
Isn't it possible to fix this?

Probably by storing a checksum of the album art in the database, because that's faster to compare than a big album art image, because those are loaded on demand from the tags (I guess). So when the checksums for the covers of all selected files matches then it will be displayed.

I'm no programmer, but what you're saying sounds possible to me.
Correct me if I'm wrong, but if the solution from Fandango would be used it would work as followed:
You would have to generate the checksums once so they get stored in some kind of database and when the album list is updated you can update the database with new checksums. When you select an album fb2k compares the checksums of the album art of all the selected songs and if they're the same it shows the image.

It would be great if Peter could say if this is possible or not (or maybe it has some disadvantages that make it not useable) and if he is planning on implementing it.

has anyone been able to get album art working with TAK? I use mp3tag to embed the album art but foobar2000 does not show it. is this an issue with the album art viewer itself or an issue with the TAK component?

Hmm... After the upgrade to 0.9.5, only folder.jpg (as opposed to folder.bmp) seems to be recognized. Any suggestions on what could be wrong, what could I do? Thanks.

I'm getting the same and cannot locate any options for "album art viewer".

It is possible to rename all album art that is folder.bmp to folder.jpg that works.

Wow, it does; thanks. Strangely enough, it recognizes bmp files fine on my Vista machine, but not on my XP box. I wish someone can come up with a solution that doesn't require incorrectly renaming hundreds of files though... (if anyone is wondering why I have all these bmp images, many of the files, I just pulled out the album cover images from iTunes; it's bmp)

I also keep all my art in one folder, and use a custom %art% tag which is simply the filename of the picture I wish to display (this eliminates every problem that could crop up as far as not showing the proper JPG).

This seems trivial to implement in the new foobar with titleformatting.

Admiral Oggbar, how do you use your custom %art% tag precisely ? I don't understand.

Is there even a way to delete album art tag information via foobar? (i.e. adding a field to properties that shows that the metadata is present)

How new album art viewer supports multiple artwork? I can only see "front cover", which is in fact back cover (but its not "first" cover in file).

Hi,

Is this post answered? I skimmed about 4 pages but couldn't find a solution.

Right. Thanks for that shakey. I see

Feature: Only display art for playing track (don't follow selection)

"Only"

Now I hope that is a typo or something. A user would like both methods to be available.

1/ Selected Item
2/ Now Playing

I, too, can't see cover.bmp artworks. It's a shame because that's the way Rockbox is expecting the files to be named and I have a portable version of foobar2k installed on my rockboxed Gigabeat, which I use to create personalized playlists and such.

Also, I'd like for cover art to stick to the currently playing song too.

The recognized filename patterns for the different kinds of album art that can be selected are as follows:
  • Front cover: folder.*;front.*;cover.*
  • Back cover: back.*
  • Disc picture: medium.*;media.*;disc.*;cd.*;dvd.*

No it's not possible and I don't know if it will be possible in future Versions!

You could still rename all your covers to front.jpg (There are possibilities for mass renaming eg with FlexRename)

Still can't figure out how to get album art working.
I have _all_ album art in a folder named "Albumart"
Which lies here: "D:\Musik\Albumart\*artist* - *album.jpg*"

This is the code I'm using:
D:\Musik\Albumart\$replace($if2(%album artist%,%artist%) - %album%,:,_,?,_,/,_).jpg

It's been working great until now. Can't figure out how to get all working.

BUG/REQUEST:
If you browse, for example with facets in album list, the official album art viewer only displays the art when there is a folder.jpg in the folder and NO embedded album art.
If both are present it displays: [multiple items]
So the request is to give folder.jpg the priority, so that foobar will also display the art when both are present.

IMHO there should be an option in the Advanced preferences dialog, where we can enter wildcards of our own. (Just like the ones under "Legacy title format settings" or "Properties dialog" or even those like "Media Library->File Types").


I'd just like to add my support for custom sources for album art. Currently all my album art is named "[Front] %album artist% - %album%.jpg" and stored in the relevant albums directory. This makes far more sense to me than having hundreds of files named front.jpg

Me too...


I use the same naming scheme as you. I think it's the most logical solution. The cover picture belongs to an album and it can be front, back, cd etc. So I use %album% - front.jpg for front cover.

Using names such as folder.*;front.*;cover.* is not possible for me, because sometimes I have multiple albums (selected tracks) in one folder. So I have many cover pictures in one directory.

I wish it would be possible to define my own searching patterns and their priorities as in album art panel.

OK I'm kind of a fb2k noob, but I can't get my external album art to display at all. I renamed the files as "front" "back" and "disc" then copied them to the album folder and expected fb2k to magically display these files when I selected a song from the playlist or album list, but no go. My songs all have embedded art, so I expect that will over-ride displaying the "front" cover and I have no problem with that. But the disc and back art doesn't display either. Do I have to delete embedded art to get the folder jpegs to display, or what?

Also is there any way to get the album art to display when multiple files with the same art are selected (as when clicking on an album in the album list) as can be done in iTunes?
