Is your music directory structure like this?:
Music/Artist/Album/songs

There's also a FAQ entry for fanart in now playing.

ok, then it won't work for you.
the artist folders need to be directly under the root folder.


as for the animated fanart in now playing, there's no option for it in Transparency!
