Wrong cover art
I have some albums with not only the cover but also the inlay etc.

The search patters are like this:

front.jpg
cover.jpg
%filename%.jpg
%album%.jpg
folder.jpg
*front.*
*front.*
*cover.*
$replace(%path%,%filename_ext%,)*.*


But now on some albums, it displays the inlay instead of the cover (i think because of the $replace(%path%,%filename_ext%,)*.*) . I use that pattern so if there is only 1 image in the folder (usually the cover) it will use that one. But in the above situation it doesnt work the way i want.

is there some way to avoid this? Or to like prioritize patterns?

that is done in the order they appear. assuming you're using the default UI artwork panel, double click it and that will locate the file in windows explorer. that might help you pinpoint your issue.

also, that $replace isn't needed. simply use

Code: [Select]
*.*

Thanks for the assistance. I replaced the $replace with *.* now.

Still some albums have issues. My Pink Floyd: Dark Side of The Moon has all the art in the same folder as the music. (Front, back, inlay, cover) And still it displays the back instead of the cover. Any ideas why this is happening?

maybe the art is embedded in the file? right click the file>tagging>manage attached pictures.

or you have some hidden files inside your music folders. check windows explorer options to show hidden and system files.

There is no art embedded in the file and no hidden files in the folder :/ Thanks for the hint though.

edit: i have found another album where this happens. This album does have a picture embedded in the file (the cover) and multiple files in the folder but still it displays the inside instead of the cover. Weird.

even if the file has no embebbed picture,  right click the file>tagging>manage attached pictures - REMOVE all attached....

also remember to rename the pictures according to your tags - sometimes the name has misspelling and it get's shown wrong. 


and  sometimes the name/album/info tagging is wrong and gets foobar to show the incorret picture.




at my foobar i use only :

*front*.jpg
*back*.jpg

so it ALWAYS dusplay the main/front cover as album art (and of course the files are named  name of albumFRONT.jpg  / albumBACK.jpg)

Put these rows in a batch-file, f.e. "show.bat"
Code: [Select]
@echo off
cd %1
attrib -h -s *.* /s
echo.
echo.
dir *.jpg
echo.
echo.
pause

Copy the batch-file in the folder and start it. Look at the outcoming window.
