Displaying Albums( don't having artwork)
I wonder is there any way to make the foobar display only those albums which dont have artwork, so that i can manage them easily. using facets, simplaylist.

You can do this filter in mp3tag

or in other words: no, it's not possible in foobar2000!
however, i'll desire that feature too but i think it requires something like a cache that also could mmade image loading in several parts of fb2k (f.e. facets) faster? (more a question than a claim)

yes, that would be a good move though this could result in performance vs memory trade-off. So for now should i assume that i have to keep searching manually every album and fix it (seems weird).

You could try some sort of batch file to check each folder, look for a folder.jpg file, then print the full path if the file was not found.

If your artwork is in your song files, like I said, you can do it in Mp3tag.

It seems fairly odd that there is not a way to do a basic search for files where the tag is missing in F2K since you can use F2K to embed the artwork in the tags. It's not clear why something like

Code: [Select]
%cover% MISSING

isn't implemented for use in a search, facets or autoplaylists.

foo_covers should be able to do this. Unfortunately, queries such as
Code: [Select]
%albumart_front% MISSING
cause foobar to become unresponsive.

You could get around this by checking a smaller number of songs at a time, or adding %albumart_front% as a custom column and scrolling down to see if any are missing.

Is this even being developed anymore? There doesn't even appear to be a download for it.
