Recognising and choosing Cover-Art

A way for Winamp to automatically find cover-art, would be very very nice.

but if this can not be made, when clicking get album art a choose local file, or just opening up in the folder that the current playlist is playing in would also be better, than getting a *no cover art matching this album could be found* when ive got the file locally.


changing or duplicating each file to get a "folder.jpg" file in each folder dosn't feel like an optimal solution.


this is my folder name
Blackmore's Night - Shadow of the Moon (1997)

images in this folder.
Blackmore's Night - Shadow of the Moon-back.jpg
Blackmore's Night - Shadow of the Moon-cd.jpg
Blackmore's Night - Shadow of the Moon-front.jpg
Blackmore's Night - Shadow of the Moon-inside.jpg

that is how most of my cover-art files are saved.. if there is a way to recognise "front" in the filename this would be very very nice

... opening up in the folder that the current playlist is playing ...

You can double click the Album Art window, if that helps.

I don't get it. Yes double clicking the album-art window opens the folder in windows explorer.. and now what ??

What I wanted was to select the cover-art/album-art file in my local folder to show in Winamp, without having to rename the file.

And secondly for Winamp to automagically see a .jpg file with the word "front" in it's filename as a cover-art file.
