RockBox album art support

<< < (2/6) > >>

Does this question reach the evaluation of task validity directly between developers in the discussions in this forum?  Or should I register with tracker?

Doesn't it support artwork png even if it is a user option?

The image viewer is a plugin, which has more resources available (since plugins don't necessarily support playback at the same time.) So what saratoga said still stands.

How is Rockbox supposed to know if music art was purchased from some store?

Maybe it would be better to make Rockbox treat the filesystem as case insensitive? (No idea how much that depends on the underlying Linux system) I wouldn't be surprised if that could cause issues with playlists too, since not all OSes consider filesystems to be case sensitive.

Why does RockBox only support jpg, jpeg and bmp formats?
In particular, jpeg and jpg have the same format, but I would like to know the reason why they support writing conventions but do not support other formats at all.

PNG is impractical.  What other formats are you looking for?

Rockbox is running on systems with very limited resources. Some things are simply not feasible. Just to put things into perspective, the Ipods (before the 6G) run at 80MHz. Compare that to your multi-GHz desktop PC.

And last, someone has to do the work. Aside from technical details nobody did it so far. Feel free to step up ...
