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.


I second that! cool.gif

In my opinion, currently (0.9.5.1) missing is an option to choose which art has priority: embedded or the one found in directory.

Personally, I'd prefer folder over embedded as a default, but I could also live with a configuration option to choose my preference.

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


I have a tag that is simply the base filename of the art that I want to display. Then I add "front", "back", "insert", or whatever else to narrow it down further if I have multiple scans. This solves EVERY problem I've had, including those "2 albums on 1 CD" discs. Adding this tag to every track on an album takes less than a second with a custom keyboard shortcut that runs a script. tongue.gif

I certainly don't expect the new UI to allow that sort of flexibility, but I am very suprised at how limited it is for people like me who keep album art separate from the music.

Still desperately checking every beta changelog for some progress concerning the default ui album art viewer... but nothing new, yet sad.gif

Is there at least still the consideration of making the album art viewer a little more customizable? The argument that the average Joe doesn't need a configurable album art viewer is feeble, as the average Joe isn't a candidate to use foobar2k in the first place...

Why not give us at least just a little flexibility, e. g. setting wildcards of our?
The 'new' default ui has really grown dear to me, but not being able to display my scanned cover art is just annoying, more than ever because making the album art viewer a little more flexible wouldn't be too hard at all, would it?

Kind regards & keep up the good work,

I together with my friends would highly appreciate if Default UI's Cover Art component was able to cycle all graphics from the current (playing from) folder.

Thank you in advance,

dreamscene just wrote exactly what I'd wanted to. I second and third it. foosion, please mark this as a feature request? Please? Pretty please? unsure.gif

Additionally, the following features would also be lovely:
1. Ability to cycle through "Front", "Back", "Disc", etc., by single/double-clicking the album art.
2. Opening up the picture file in the default viewer (if it is a folder.jpg or other non-embedded picture file) via a right-click menu (or possibly, double-clicking).
3. (If it is technically feasible to override the embedded art): Ability to choose which to display when both embedded art and folder art are present.

Thanks for making the best music player out there (and for keeping it free).

Cheers.

Will the "cycle sources" option be implemented or is it impossible for technical reason ?

Like some other people, I'm still waiting for some progress on this UIElement, cause for now, I can't use DefaultUI because I really miss Album Art Panel.

I'd like to see artist.jpg as a standard for album art viewer. I renamed all my artist.jpg to disc.jpg but that isn't of course what i really want.

What does icon do? what name must a jpg have to be shown in that field?

I don't know if this is the correct thread or not, but It'd be nice if foobar would show the first cover in a group instead of showing [multiple items].

Why?

Well, in my case this happens when:
1) You click on an album where all the songs have embedded covers, since they're from the same album, they're most likely the same.
2) You click on an album that is split into 2 CD folders and each folder has a folder.jpg/cover.jpg, most of the time these jpgs are the same, and sometimes they're not, but it'd still be better to just show the first.

Is there support for alternative naming schemes for cover art yet? Only thing keeping me back from the DUI is inability to display my cover art.

I will request this again...

An option to disable image resizing. If my album art viewer is 500x500, and I have an image that is 300x300, leave it at 300x300. When it is resized, it looses quality and looks pretty bad. Sometimes higher resolution album art cannot be found.

There is no option 'yet'. The album art support is limited by embedded album art (im mp3, ogg, flac etc...) and limited by ... see page 1

QUOTE (foosion @ Oct 22 2007, 12:39) *
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.*


Nice to see the topic is still alive, hopefull something get's implemented. I've seen great solutions to nice solution, all better than we have at the moment. I again vote for foosion solution. post

if you mean me Bobjua blink.gif , I was replying to zfed who wants to display his files named 'Thumb.jpg'. Since this thread is concerned about album art, I assume zfed means he wants to display 'Thumb.jpg' as album art.
So my post simple informs, no you can't make 'Thumb.jpg' as album art in foobar at the moment.
To have album art, the art should either be embedded or is one of the recognized filename patterns foosion mention.

Don't think this was mentioned...

Incredibly easy *sorta* workaround for getting album art to show now-playing:
Go to playback menu and set "cursor follows playback".

I like it like this.

Can it really be that f2k 0.9.5 doesn't recognize a TIFF image (e.g., 'folder.tif')? I had to rename it 'folder.jpg' to get it to display.

I'd also like the album art viewer to pick up on whatever's in the folder, I don't mind so much what it does if there's more than one image there, as long as if I have hbyry54.jpg and yhbyhh76t36.jpeg in the folder the music is in and it shows one of them, that will be a big improvement for me. I would also like it to cycle through whatever's in there and to have the option of ignoring images embedded in the audio file, but they're less important to me for now. I don't really understand how having to rename them is simpler for novices!

Keir, foo_uie_albumart will be a solution for you then - if you're not on default UI. Works just fine here.

I am on the default UI, I was on Columns some time ago but I switched back because the default UI got better. I might switch back.

I also switched back from columns ui. I still like the new default ui, but I am a little dissapointed that the album art feature doesn't seem to be actively developed atm. foo_uie_albumart was much more flexible. sad.gif

I've got a problem which is similar to post #19 & #21 by garym. But, it still bothering me even if I got 0.9.6 installed.
I use Mp3tag v2.4 to arrange embedded art in my mp3 songs and they are placed in the "My Music" directory, which is also my media library monitoring directory.
Recently I put some mp3 files without embedded art into the monitoring directory, and the default art viewer shows the art which is embedded by another mp3(named A). Strangely, I've tried to remove all tags in A and placed A to another directory, but the no embedded art files in library viewer selection playlist were still showing A's embedded art. If I move those no embedded art files to another place and add them to foobar's another playlist, the art viewer will show no art correctly. I'm sure that there is no any jpg files in the monitoring directory. I've even tried removing foobar completely (all profiles got removed) and reinstalled, but they just showed exactly the same art which shouldn't be in my hard disk now.
Is this a bug or something? And, any solution? Thanks.

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.*

Is that regexp or simple */? windows matching? Because I have a lot of scans and foobar shows only few of them. For example:
"01 - album name - digipack front.jpg"
"02 - album name - digipack back.jpg"
"03 - album name - cd.jpg"
"04 - album name - digipack inside 1.jpg"
"05 - album name - digipack inside 2.jpg"
"06 - album name - booklet 1.jpg"
"07 - album name - booklet 2.jpg"
"08 - album name - booklet 3.jpg"
"09 - album name - booklet 4.jpg"
"10 - album name - booklet 5.jpg"
"11 - album name - booklet 6.jpg"
"12 - album name - booklet 7.jpg"
"13 - album name - booklet 8.jpg"

Foobar doesn't show any of these. :-(
Maybe foobar should have option "Where to find album art:"? And in context menu (right button click) instead of Front cover, Back cover, Disk, Icon should be names of found gif, png, jpe, jpeg, jpg in that location? What do you think?
