display art from id3 tag for individual songs

Unread postby ayefly » 23 Jul 2015, 22:53

I have albums organized by folder, with an additional folder called non-album.
I have all my singles organized in this non-album folder, with art embedded in their tag.
when I play a song, it just shows the artwork from one of the songs, using that same image for all of the ones in that folder.
Is there a way to make it display the art of the song currently being played?

*without creating separate artist folders under the non-album folder.*

Don't suppose you ever had any luck with this? This is easily at the top of the list of things I wish worked better. I have many custom compilation folders, all of which are carefully tagged with embedded art. Having the art from the first file shown for every other file is very disappointing behavior.

Sadly this is how it seems sub- and madsonic work. They only load 1 cover art per folder. I don't usually even bother with folders as I just keep individual songs I like and so mostly just have them all in a single folder. Trying out *sonic and I think I'm going to have to go through and have mp3tag create directories for each "album" (most of which probably only have 1 or 2 songs). PITA

If either of you find a solution that actually just uses the embedded art and tags, let me know as I'd love to find something too! For now trying to work within constraints of madsonic...
