Getting covers working

Post by simonmason » Sat May 02, 2009 2:00 pm

I am not sure what I need to do to get covers displaying. I have a jpg image in each directory that is either named the same as the album or the track. How do I tell netjukebox which covers to pull up for which files? My other media programs seem to accomplish this without my intervention so I am not sure what they are doing exactly. Thanks.

The image name can be configured in the config.inc.php file.
See: http://www.netjukebox.nl/filestructure.php

Can I configure this to look for jpg images based upon a certain format? For example, most of my files are "Artist - Album.jpg"

Any interest in changing it to accommodate this?

I have no plans to implement such a feature in the near future.
Besides of manual adding images to a directory, netjukebox has three other ways to add images:
  • Extract them from an mp3 or flac tag.
  • Retrieve them form the internet.
  • Upload images.
All these images must have the same filename to prevent selecting an older or wrong image.

Maybe I can add an optional feature to the batch_rename_image.php script to scan for all images in a directory and only rename the image with the highest resolution and delete al other images.
At the moment I have no time to implement such a feature.
