Displaying artwork

Hi!!

How about this:
A window - wich can be toggled like the visualizer - will always display the cover-artwork of the item currently being played, which could a jpg-file with a certain name (for example "cover.jpg") located in the folder of the file which is being played.

Not everyone listens to very popular music, of which the cover-thumbnail is always found in the "show-info" web area . I never use that anyway, but instead, have a cover.jpg in nearly every album folder. I consider it very important to know what the album artwork looks like for the music currently being played.

Thanks!!

Please tell me how it can be set to take the cover.jpg and only that from the album folder from which the current file is being played?

I doubt very much that that works.

the cover.jpg is in the same folder as the file playing?

or are there multiple images in that folder(in which case i think it switches between them)? you can right click the window and uncheck 'cycle covers' and that may fix that

it should automatically see any jpg, regardless of what its called(i think.. i know it at least sees folder.jpg and cover.jpg) as well as covers that are in the id3 tag..

if having the id3 tag info bothers you, then you can go into prefrences(right click->prefrences->general purpose->cover and tag->uncheck 'show tag' or right click the video window and hit configure)

the cover shows up in the video window(so right click and click video to open it up)

if none of that is what you needed, then could you re-explain?
