File art instead of album art

One of my libraries contains only folders with mixed songs - the tags are adapted to work better for DLNA usage - therefore e.g. the title is "Darkness", but the album is "Pop-Shuffle".

As the Folder contains ~150 titles i would like to use the embedded cover art for all of them (as it differs mostly).

Even tho i have Media extracting activated (and it works) all songs in one album have the cover from the first one - is it possible to change that?

P.S. i used to have my organised library and the 'mixed folders in one server, so i gave them all the artist "Playlists" to not destroy the artist and ablum tab with many duplicates/incomplete artists

Hi, we use the same for each track in an album as an optimization, but an option to control this is always possible.

This option would be awesome.

I found a few other Threads (older ones) having the same problem.

Funny fact: VLC does the same (caching the album art and when artist and album dont change they load it from the cache)

I personally would put a slider in the hidden options of library (where the "pre download art" option is), as it will slow down library scanning (at least i think so)

 

Thanks in advance - could you reply to this thread if the option makes it in the program?

Mfg Raimund
