hmm, but if the images are not zipped, but in the same folder as the zip file (which is what I understand castaway's situation to be), then it should be possible to use titleformatting to get the current directory, right?  I think this will work, and it even should work for regular (non-zipped) tracks as well:

Code: [Select]
$substr(%_path%,1,$strrchr(%_path%,'\'))folder.jpg

Sorry, my bad, I just saw the word 'zipped' and assumed the images were in the zips 
Hmm, I'd been using
Code: [Select]
$replace(%_path%,%_filename_ext%,)folder.jpg
, but I do like the string you're offering - it wont fail if the filename appears elsewhere in the path (unlikely of course).

As for zipped folders, I just made a test file, the path comes up as:
Code: [Select]
C:\Documents and Settings\<removed my full name>\Desktop\this is a test folder.zip|this is a test folder/bleargh.wav


It appears to be using a forward slash for directories inside the archive, so gfngfgf's code should work.

So to clarify, in the case of a zipped album, you should use gfngfgf's string, which is
Code: [Select]
$substr(%_path%,1,$strrchr(%_path%,'\'))folder.jpg


Edit: removed my name from that filepath. Stupid windows, storing stuff in such a stupid place lol.

how to display a no cover art?


[CRASHWARE] updated foo_uie_albumart

I'm am still confused about something. I've been trying to read this thread, but it is very overwhelming.

I used to use iTunes for all my album artwork. Nearly every single song on iTunes has artwork, however, when I use the foobar plugin MAYBE only 10% of the albums display artwork. The problem is I don't know where iTunes saves the album artwork files. I also do not understand why foobar only picks up a handful of artworks and other don't get picked up at all when they work in iTunes just fine.

Can anyone shed some light on this for me please?

iTunes saves the artwork in the tag. Currently the plugin does not read covers from tag.


@acedriver

Anyway to implement this now that the 0.91 SDK is out?

@G-Lite

Any chance that the album art can be obtained from the actual tag itself (similar to iTunes?)? (instead of a jpg in the directory)

Thanks for updating & porting this plugin to v0.9!

Can the panel look for covers stored in the following format %artist%_%album%.png ?

if it can what would I put in so that it would find the images in H:\music\covers ?


I guess it can and suprize suprize I needed to put H:\music\covers\%artist%_%album%.png for it to work

Foosion has made a newer, improved version compatible with Columns UI 0.1.3 beta 1. Grab it here:
http://foosion.foobar2000.org/0.9/foo_uie_albumart.dll

Note that he has no intention of doing any further development for it, so don't even think about bothering him with it.
I've updated my page to link there.

My minimum panel heght value is always at 999 and i can't change it (it always jumps back to 999, making the plug-in useless for me)
Could somebody help me solving this problem ?

I have that bug as well.

there is some problems with this version. If i had album art to column UI, i cannot add any other panel anymore because the panel menu in insert menu doesnt open anymore. Another thing is that if i change the min size it got stuck to 999 and i cannot change it anymore.
I had to delete the plugin and its settings for the min size to get back to 0.

EDIT: just seen that he panel problem was due to column UI, you are all really toooooo fast . thanks for your amazing workkkkkk

This happens whenever I put Album Art Panel in as a component.

Latest beta, I still haven't updated Libpng, everything else should be to the latest versions.

Enjoilax: this is corrected, you need the last column UI(v3)

there's also a problem with foosion's version. if you go preferences > Album Art Panel > Behaviour and check the "album covert art follows cursor even when playing", it works. but when you click "Save All", it becomes unchecked(even though it is actually in effect. so i guess the problem is that it can't be turned off.

There's another problem with it. When you specify the minimum panel height and press Save All, it always gets reset to 999. And you cannot change it to anything else anymore, even to 0. Only Reset all helps

Yeah i can confirm this (using v0.162), you can still turn it off from the right click context menu on the panel though (toggle follow cursor).
