more Options Display Album Art Cover

Postby rasti » 03 Jun 2015, 11:17

Dear developpers,

currently the image displayed is
1st if mp3 file contains image this is displayed
2nd if no image is within the mp3 file then
cover.jpg of the folder is displayed

I have two suggestions
#1 a 3rd option in which rune performs an image cover search on google
based e.g. upon the file name or mp3 content or ???
#2 it would be nice if the user could select the preferred order of
display options, e.g. always mp3 image or first cover.jpg in folder
if none is found, then mp3 image, then google image or
any other possiblle order

Hi Ralf,

this is the way it's done in 0.3beta (with updates installed).

1. embedded
2. folder.jpg / cover.jpg / folder.png / cover.png
3. lastFM
4. no cover

I don't have a last.fm account and the order should not be fixed but user selectable. And maybe an image search based upon whatever is a nice idea....

Hi Ralf,

An account is not needed for this.

I only told you how it is done at the moment.

currently the image displayed is
1st if mp3 file contains image this is displayed
2nd if no image is within the mp3 file then
cover.jpg of the folder is displayed


correct is:
1. search for cover embedded within meta tags (mp3, flac and so on)
2. search for cover.jpg, cover.png, folder.jpg and folder.png
3. search last-fm with currentartist and currentalbum

OK. I thought this had something to do with last-fm on the settings page.

"Send to Last.fm informations about the music you are listening to (requires a Last.fm account)"

I wonder because until now I only remarked embedded arts and the cover files in the corresponding folder.

Hi Ralf,

"Send to Last.fm informations about the music you are listening to (requires a Last.fm account)"

This is for the so called "srobbling" to Last-fm and has nothing to with cover art.

I wonder because until now I only remarked embedded arts and the cover files in the corresponding folder.

This may be related to a non correct / different tagging of your files.

Best way to check this is:
- make 3 folders with the same song in it
- first folder gets an mp3 with embedded cover (a jpg containing only the word embedded).
- second folder has the normal mp3 without embedded cover, but with a folder.jpg (picture contains the word folder)
- third folder has only the mp3 without any jpg.

well even if my files are not well tagged I will not be able to change that.
I use mp3 for over 20 years now and the collection has grown to over 70gb or so with a few hundred subdirectories. I (almost) never do use the tags for searching.... everything is in folders in alphabetical order.

I can compare what I see in Rune with mp3 files in my windows VLC player.
- if an (embedded) image is shown in VLC, it also appears in Rune.
- if no image is shown in VLC,
=> Rune shows the folder cover.jog, if here is one in the subdirectory or
=> rune shows the rune logo, if there's no cover.jpg in the folder.
I still don't understand how last fm comes into the game now.
Is any data sent to last.fm to get the correct album art ?

The same as you proposed with google.
Use artist and album as a query to get the right cover image.
If you have a better solution in mind, you are welcome to help.

Thanks Frank,

I am getting closer to understand I think.

I searched for MP3 with and without meta data.

Those with artist data in fact display a last.fm image.
So this works as it should. Forget about my google suggestion.

But:
1) MP3s which only have a file name seem to display the rune logo only.
So am I right that the rune server only sends embedded data ?

How about the file name itself to get an image from last.fm?
Is it correct that this information is currently not used ?
If so, that would be ideal for me....

2) the order is fixed but as said, I'd prefer another order

1 folder.jpg / cover.jpg / folder.png / cover.png
2. lastFM
3. no cover
4 (embedded ->ommit)

Ideally the order is optional.

I tried a search of the following mp3 which I have here.
All of them have no artist name or other media data
So last.fm finds no image

BaseUnique_VoyageVoyage.mp3
Anton Feat DJ Ötzi - Das Album - 03 - Gemma Bier trinken.mp3
12. Hotel California - Gypsy Kings.mp3
12 - You came.mp3
01EAV - Geld oder Leben.mp3

If you
=> strip of .mp3
=> strip off all numbers and _ and - and %
=> search on last fm
=> search on google images

you get quite good results (not always,e .g. you came is too general).
