,

no error at all, and i need to ask, you are 100% sure C:\Users\Joshua\Music\Chris Brown\Yeah 3x\Folder.jpg is not 200*200, just wanna make sure we dont miss the obvious


RE: Music Artwork Resolution Small - speeder212! - 2017-07-04

Yes, I did another check to confirm and it still tells me the embedded image is 900x900. I don't think anything else on my PC could cause this issue, but maybe. I don't know why it caches incorrectly.


RE: Music Artwork Resolution Small - meowmoo - 2017-07-04

I'm not asking for the size from the embedded image, the folder.jpg inside the album folder matters, read my post again Smile


RE: Music Artwork Resolution Small - DaveBlake - 2017-07-04

Sorry I don't know about those errors either, but they are key to this issue and I will see if I can find out more.

Meanwhile the question from @meowmoo is a good one. Has your ripping/tagging process created lower res images outside the music files. For example what size is C:\Users\Joshua\Music\Chris Brown\Yeah 3x\Folder.jpg?


RE: Music Artwork Resolution Small - meowmoo - 2017-07-04

Daves post triggered another idea, maby the jpg are hidden, and you need to turn on the windows option, show hidden files, this issue bugs me a few hours, when I was tagging mp3s from a friend, the ripping tool stored the album as a hidden jpg, and I was wondering why all my covers are saved as folder(1).jpg

If this also is not the problem, I'm lost and can't help anymore


RE: Music Artwork Resolution Small - speeder212! - 2017-07-04

I never thought of that! But that isn't the problem either, there are no hidden jpgs in that directory (or images of any file type).


RE: Music Artwork Resolution Small - meowmoo - 2017-07-04

Ans whats the size of C:\Users\Joshua\Music\Chris Brown\Yeah 3x\Folder.jpg?

@DaveBlake why did kodi store the thumbs "only" in 720px, without this issue here I would have never noticed it anyway, but the main source for covers is fanart.tv and the are all 1000px.

Ideal would be if kodi store them at the original size.

So @speeder212 C:\Users\Joshua\Music\Chris Brown\Yeah 3x\Folder.jpg does not exist?

The 720px is a default max, you can change that to 1000px in advancedsettings.xml if you want.

I would guess the 720px limit was set with a mind to smaller devices, it is easy to fill up a RPi SD card with big thumbs. But I don't know as this all predates me by a long way.


RE: Music Artwork Resolution Small - speeder212! - 2017-07-04

Correct DaveBlake. C:\Users\Joshua\Music\Chris Brown\Yeah 3x\Folder.jpg does not exist! These album folders only contain the mp3 music files (which have the images embedded into them).


RE: Music Artwork Resolution Small - meowmoo - 2017-07-04

I don't believe it, so kodi is picking up a ghost folder.jpg ?!
Im still going with my hidden files jpg guess Smile


RE: Music Artwork Resolution Small - speeder212! - 2017-07-04

I enabled hidden files in windows explorer and still nothing appeared.
Thanks for trying though.


RE: Music Artwork Resolution Small - DaveBlake - 2017-07-04

I have to say I am dubious too, sorry @speeder212, but here is why.

The log says for example
Code:
20:00:19.901 T:9660   ERROR: CImageLoader::DoWork - Direct texture file loading failed for special://masterprofile/Thumbnails/3/39825544.jpg
...
Code:
20:00:19.902 T:9660   DEBUG: Caching image 'C:\Users\Joshua\Music\Chris Brown\Yeah 3x\Folder.jpg' to '3/39825544.jpg':
20:00:19.902 T:9660   DEBUG: cached image 'special://masterprofile/Thumbnails/3/39825544.jpg' size 200x200
That is the image loader running in background fails to load a thumbnail, so it goes off and sucessully finds the master image file and caches it as 200px.

If C:\Users\Joshua\Music\Chris Brown\Yeah 3x\Folder.jpg did not exist it would complain.

I am reasonably sure that Kodi does not make temporary folder.jpg files, but I will check.

Perhaps try another approach. Create a test music album, with unique artist (no other music) and some tracks but do not embed any images. Maybe use Mp3tag not dbpoweramp. Add that to Kodi, a new music source would do, with debug on, and share the log file.

RE: Music Artwork Resolution Small - meowmoo - 2017-07-04

I think i will wipe the db/thumbs and run ./texturecache.py Smile
