There should be an option to disable little circular automatic artist pictures that Subsonic downloads from the Internet. I have a lot of niche artists and the images that Subsonic finds are completely incorrect. Please add an ability to turn this feature on/off.
Thank you!

Funny, you want an option to turn this off, mine doesn't do it at all !!!
I want the phone Android App to show the Embedded Art that each song has and NOT the Art from just the first song.
I have 6,000 songs in 1 folder, each with a different embedded art picture, and THOSE are what I want to see when the song is playing.Individually.Different.

Ok, ok, so a year later, plenty of time to be calm and shit, been charged automatically my "renewal" fee, and STILL NO RESPONSE to my concerns of ANY post here in the forums regarding bugs, NOR any help in trying to figure out any of the issues - so they are CLEARLY bugs - which have neither been acknowledged nor rectified.

IT, the Android App, may find in a search what I am looking for, but, does NOTHING when I click/choose anything from the findings. WTF?

In "Library" mode, IT still does not list the library {contents of the folder with the songs} in one coherent string/list alphabetically from A-Z, IT does still show the list in multiple strings of A-Z ... VERY FUCKING ANNOYING.

And now for the "Album Art" issue. STILL NOT working properly. STILL the very same it was, a fucking YEAR ago. When a song is playing, the EMBEDDED ART of THAT song should be showing. ***HINT to ALL *** The Embedded ART of any song might/can/will BE DIFFERENT from the Album Art of the ALBUM !!!***

Otherwise, this is a fine App, really love it.

This is exactly why I came here. The little round artist Picture shows some times and sometimes it doesn't. I put a picture called band.png in the root of the artist folder on my computer and that seems to show up sometimes but I can't figure out how to get it to show consistently or control what picture shows up.

Update - I was able to fix some of the round artist pictures by deleting the contents of lastfmcache and lastfmcache2. But some pictures are now coming up with a generic band picture called - 4040/icons/generic-artist.jpg I wish I could have the option to pick my own.
