How can I tell Album Art Viewer to always get images from one folder?
Hi,

I've a question about the Album Art Viewer in Foobar.

All my audio files are organized like that:

Beethoven - Sonata No.1... - Deutsche Grammophon\
...
_LIVRET_    <---- where i put all image files like Front cover, Back, Disc, etc
Sonata 1-1.flac
Sonata 1-2.flac
...

So, when i play the file, there is no image in Album Art. I would like to set my folder _LIVRET_ as the source for the Album Art Viewer.
I type this name in the Display options with all the others parameters (front.jpg, etc) but it doesn't work.

Is that possible to tell to Foobar, go here, all my image files are there !

Thanks a lot.

Try  \_LIVRET_\front.jpg

Thanks but it doesn't work. The idea is that the component search in one or two folders up to the file.

My tree organization is like this:

György Ligeti Edition - Sony

  _LIVRET_ containing images
    ^  Vol. 1 - String Quartets and Duets
    I    Vol. 2 - A Cappella Choral Works
    I    Vol. 3 - Works for Piano
    I      01 Etude 1 (Book 1) - Désordre.mp3
    I      02 Etude 2 (Book 1) - Cordes à vide.mp3
    +---- 03 Etude 3 (Book 1) - Touches bloquées.mp3 [PLAYING]

I don't think it is possible...

Try also ..\_LIVRET_\cover.jpg and ..\..\_LIVRET_\cover.jpg (two dots before backslashes).
