This is what I tried, from command shell:

echo "METADATA_BLOCK_PICTURE=`base64 --wrap=0 cover.jpg`" > picture.meta
vorbiscomment -c picture.meta song.ogg

When I look at song.ogg I can see it is in the vorbis comments, but when I add the song to my rhythmbox library - no album art.

Am I do something wrong or does rhythmbox just not support album art with ogg?

It does with both flac and mp3 but both metaflac and lame have switches for adding album art, vorbiscomment does not appear to.

Gawd - I'm reading osdir mailing list archives trying to find how to do this from command line tools and suddenly audio adverts start blasting.
Why osdir ?? why? You use to be one of the good guys. *ah well*.

The official way is to use a FLAC METADATA_BLOCK_PICTURE structure. Base64 data of the picture itself is not enough. I haven't tested embedded artwork in Ogg files though, I don't know what playback software supports it.

If it is suppose to end up looking the way an embedded image within a flac file looks, looks like I'm out of luck with the reference encoder and vorbiscomment then, I guess I'll have to wait for them to come up with a command switch similar to what is in metaflac for adding artwork. I believe I'm running the latest vorbis-tools, I don't want to mess with a third party tool to embed them.

Does Vorbis tag support BMP pictures?
I've tried to insert BMP file in Vorbis, but Foobar2000 reported an error.

from http://wiki.xiph.org/index.php/VorbisComment#Cover_art :

"Picture data should be stored in PNG or JPEG formats..."

This is a bad idea to store BMP pictures as an album art inside audio files, especially if they’re big. You can convert those to png without any loss of quality and they are supported pretty much by all of the media containers.

Can anyone recommend a good player that supports METADATA_BLOCK_PICTURE? (windows/linux/android)

It's working for me in any of the GStreamer based audio players.

Flac, ogg vorbis. ogg opus - all display art added with that tag.
