Title: 5th gen iPod - problem with album art
Post by: garwhi on June 09, 2009, 07:22:31 PM
Maybe i'm an extreme n00b at Rockbox but i can't get my 80GB 5th gen iPod to display album art at all. (I had no similar problem with a 30GB 5th gen iPod of mine). I have folder.jpg's in each of the album directories. I even tried AlbumArt Extractor for Rockbox, but that was no help. I finally, as a test, converted one of my art files to cover.bmp and that now gives me one piece of album art. It's obviously pretty labor intensive to convert all of my hundreds of albums to .bmp. Can anyone tell me why album art display doesn't work with jpegs on this iPod. Is there maybe some option i need to set? I should say that i also have embedded album art on all of my files, and i thought that Rockbox would now work with embedded art. And, if this is relevant, all of these music files are .flac format. Thanks for any help.

3.2 doesn't support jpeg album art. Try using a current build.

OK. Wow. Thanks for your quick solution to my problem. I'll uninstall what i have now and install a current build. I thought i had installed the latest stable build but i obviously didn't read closely enough before installing. Thanks again.

OK. Update. Just went upstairs and installed the current build over the other. I'm lookin' at gorgeous album art. Thanks so much. Love Rockbox.
