Ok, I have this working now . Flac files also use VorbisComment, so is it ok to use this method for flac files as well?

No. FLAC was added native support for embedding album art with version 1.1.3. The PICTURE block is already supported by a few programs, including MP3tag 2.38 and Audio Shell.

However, I wouldn't recommended mass storing image files in the Vorbis comments without testing the system with all intended SW & HW players. Not all players work correctly when an ogg file has this kind of big comment frame.


Yes, my library falls foul of this as does Winamp. From the Ogg documentation I think if the total size of the Vorbis Comment is greater than 64 kb it will need to span multiple Ogg Pages. And in both these cases it expects all the Vorbis Comment to be on one page. Im going to fix my library but I think the key thing is to only add quite small images

Foobar seems to handle these art comments just fine as far as still playing the tracks and displaying the other tags properly, but...is there any way to get Foobar to actually display these embedded files?

Hello everybody.

I have more or less the same question...

In fact, is there anything at all that will display the base-64 bundled images?
So far I was succesful tagging some of my albums with Tag&Rename which does a good job IMHO with the embedding of the album art.
Also their shell thingy (whatever its called -audioshell?) shows the art (which is to be expected).

But nothing else 

Only MediaMonkey v3 beta does it 
But its beta and who knows how much more months years or centuries till stable.

Anything else out there that can actually look inside the vorbis comments?
So far all plugins and mediaplayers I tried make it the simple and boring way that has been available since World War II - look for *.jpg image inside the folder... not quite impressive.

Thanks paultaylor.
While I'm not thinking about using it, at least makes me happy to see embedding the art might not be a lost cause after all.

Just to note, whatever method Jaikoz uses for tagging OGG files works with the new Default UI in foobar.

Ok, let's make a step forward:

I succesfully embedded covers in OGG with AudioShell but PHP Easy Downloader (wich uses getid3 to read tags) can't extract it.

Can someone help me ?

i wanted to let you know that there (again) have been lively discussions about the ogg vorbis album cover art issue at the ogg vorbis developer mailing lists.

the consensus is to find an official standard on how to embed (or link) album cover art pictures within ogg vorbis files.

you can help to establish a standard by downloading and testing a provided sample file. please check this ogg vorbis wiki page for details.

thanks!

The first post of this thread is 2 years old...

Whilst the wheels of vorbis comments standards are revolving at full speed they should also define:

track count, disc count, album artist 

(these 3 have unoffical standards as used by many programs with flac such as TotalDiscs totaltracks and albumartist).

Cover artwork within vorbis comments has now (finally) been officially specified. Please check the specification here at the XiphWiki if you're a developer and interested in supporting embedded cover art within ogg (vorbis) files.
