Full Version: Display Album Art

Hello,
I've used XBMC and now Kodi and feel that I am fairly familiar with the functions but I have an issue with the display of album art. I use Kodi/Quartz (greatest skin there is) with Flac or MP3 files that have album art in the tags. I have folders for the 50's, 60's, and 70' that I put music in, those songs that I identify with but which I feel it unnecessary to purchase the entire album. Previously when I played these files the album art for the individual song would be shown. But since I have scanned the library now it only displays a single album cover for all songs in the file. I have tried clearing the cache, I have turned on read tags but cannot get it to revert to showing the albums for each song in the file.

I believe this is not isolated to the Quartz skin, I see the same issue when I load Confluence or Metropolis.

Any suggestions on how to set this up so that it reverts to the previous?

Thanks for any suggestions or flak.

Hi m_tburg! Can you elaborate which version of the skin you are using? Can you provide some images to show me the problem and steps to reproduce it? Smile
Hi,
When it opens up it says version 16.1. The 50s, 60s, and 70s folders contain MP3 files that I download from Amazon. When I look at those files with a tag editor program I can see the individual art work from each album that the song was pulled from. The size is about 250 KB.

One of the reasons I went with XBMC and now Kodi is the desire to display album art while listening to music, which led me through Slappa cases, to Squeezebox Touch and now to Kodi.

Thanks,
Mike
Thanks for your explanation.. sadly this is for Quartz 4.. Currently I'm focussing my energy on Quartz 5 for Krypton builds. Maybe, really maybe, if I have some time left I'll try fixing this, but don't expect it to be soon..

Thanks for all your efforts. My issue is minor and may be solved by either deleting all my cache or reinstalling. I really like the skin.
