just to let you know if you want to use EAC to output M4a files you can use ffmpeg to do this and get tagging. The best command line I have come up with is:

-i %source% -metadata "ARTIST=%artist%" -metadata "TITLE=%title%" -metadata "ALBUM=%albumtitle%" -metadata "DATE=%year%" -metadata "TRACK=%tracknr%" -metadata "GENRE=%genre%" -metadata "ALBUM_ARTIST=%albuminterpret%" -metadata "COMPOSER=%composer%" -metadata "DISCNUMBER=%cdnumber%" -metadata "COMMENT=CRC:%TRACKCRC%" -metadata "TOTALTRACKS=%numtracks%" -acodec alac %dest%

Sorry if this is old news, if there are any better command lines, a link to the forum post would be appreciated.

Long time reader, first time poster at HA for me. Starting my lossless ALAC archive using EAC, used this command line from the wiki. However how do I modify it so it will embed album art?

Please forgive me, I have no clue when it comes to code; I tried adding -metadata "ARTWORK=%coverfile%". Do I need to use %hascover% anywhere?

I'm assuming that if I've done it right, the file icons in windows should change to the album art?
