Ron gives up? Impossible 😉
If he even gets ogg, flac played… how about converting the image before streaming it? Using ImageMagick, for example ( http://www.imagemagick.org/ )? Using that to convert to a stream compatible format, it should be “possible”.
But “available” is up to Ron of course 🙂
Btw, what’s the progress on the option to use templates to define the art file name? Last week I improved my tagger application by a part that downloads all my album covers from Amazon (giving the choice to select one specific one of course, since sometimes the Amazon search isn’t very exact), and now that I have all files as “ArtistAlbum.jpg” I would love to see them of course 😉
(if not, I’ll have to find some documentation on how album art is actually stored inside ID3 tags – right now my ID3v2 code is only able to read/write the usual string/int fields – any recommendations on that?)
