Cover Art - Folder with Various Artist

Postby sleazell » Thu Jul 20, 2017 1:17 pm

I have my library sorted by folder. I have a couple of "mix" folders with songs from various artist. Subsonic only shows cover art for the first song for all of the songs in the folder. Is there any way around this? All of the songs have embedded artwork.

Kinda sounds like my experience ...
Subsonic on Android - App connects, lists music files, but only shows 1{the same} pic for any song - NOT THE PIC THAT IS EMBEDDED IN THE {ANY} SONG. It doesn't even show the correct "Album Art" {Folder.jpg in folder containing numerous mp3's} anywhere.
The webserver interface does show the correct "Album art" but nowhere does it show the "embedded" Art for each song.

Can anyone please help me get this App & Server to work correctly ???

By default Subsonic relies on the first image file in a folder to be the coverart. So if you have back.jpg and cover.jpg in a folder, subsonic will use back.jpg as coverart.
If there's no image file, Subsonic will use the first embedded image it finds and use that for the complete album, even if other tracks have different coverart.
But when you play the files in Subsonic the correct coverart for each track will show.

Same experience here, although the last poster says that when playing the tracks in Subsonic, the correct embedded cover art for each song is shown. That does not seem to happen for me in the web player or a few of the mobile ios players I've tried. It still shows the embedded art for the first track in the folder.
Does anyone know if this is something that's going to be fixed in future version(s) of subsonic?
