Embedded artwork isn't supported unfortunately, as it can only be cached by browsing the GUI (if you have "Extract thumbnails" enabled in Settings) or - presumably - by the original scraper, and not by downloading the embedded artwork from the webserver, which is the method the script is using.

Any artwork that is embedded (where the url begins with video or music, eg. "[email protected]://blah/blah/song.mp3") will not be processed by the script when performing a caching operation, so if you run "C songs" it will not remove any of your embedded artwork (as it can't be re-cached) but it will remove and re-cache any non-embedded artwork.

As for Folder.jpg, the first thing is to confirm if any of your albums are actually using the Folder.jpg file as their "thumbnail" artwork - check with "jd albums", then if you find an album search the cache (s "you-folder.jpg-thumbnail-path") to see if the corresponding url is present in the cache.

All of my albums have "cover.jpg" (not folder.jpg) in the album folder and these are scraped and cached OK, is "folder.jpg" the correct filename for album artwork when scraping the music db?

Yes Im adding allow.recacheall=yes to the cfg.

Thanks, I should probably re-word that to be "Filter mandatory, unless allow.recacheall=yes" or similar.
