    Question about old official Logitech Squeezebox Controller App for Iphone

    I like this old App a lot - it is fast, its look & feel is the same as my duet controller and Jivelite...
    The only thing I noticed is that the Cover-Art is not showing in the now playing screen. (It does show the Art-Work in the play-list view.)
    -> Is that a known bug of that App, or is it something which has to do w/ my setup (so there is a chance I can fix it)?

    My setup:
    Logitech Media Server Version: 7.9.1 - 1503129892 @ Sat Aug 19 09:29:31 UTC 2017
    Betriebssystem: Debian - DE - utf8
    Plattformarchitektur: i686-linux
    Perl-Version: 5.18.2 - i686-linux-gnu-thread-multi-64int
    Audio::Scan: 0.95
    Datenbankversion: DBD::SQLite 1.34_01 (sqlite 3.7.7.1)

    *Edit*: Also, Artwork shows fine when using jivelite, Duet etc ...Only on the Logitech Iphone App it is missing....

    I am running LMS w/ -nomysqueezebox parameter

    P.S. I know there are other very good apps available - I have some of those (including Android Squeezecommander, Orangesqueeze, ...).
    But I like the original one on my Iphone. Also, I have an old I phone (4s), so future 64bit migration is not a concern for me

    With any content? Local or online music only?

    > I am running LMS w/ -nomysqueezebox parameter


    Would the artwork show without that parameter?

    Hi Michael;
    I rarely use local music anymore. But I just tested it - with local music it works!
    Via Spotty, but also via Internetradio it does not.

    I will also check running LMS w/o -nomysqueezebox and report back.

    Hi Michael.
    It has something to do w/ using "--nomysqueezebox"!

    When I leave that parameter out, the Artwork appears on the Nowplaying Screen!
    However - then it is missing from the playlist screen (via Spotty).....which worked before when using "--nomysqueezebox"....

    Strange....

    *edit* and:

    I found that I can toggle that behavior while not using "--nomysqueezebox":

    - When using option "Plattenhüllen Grössenanpassung: Plattenhüllen auf mysqueezebox anpassen", I get Artwork in the NowPlaying screen and not in the Playlist screen
    - When using option "Plattenhüllen Grössenanpassung: Plattenhüllen lokal in LMS anpassen", I get Artwork in the Playlist screen and not in the NowPlaying screen

    This behavior is independent from what parameter I use for "Plattenhüllen zwischenspeichern"

    Using LMS to resize artwork is enforced when running LMS in --nomysqueezebox mode. Therefore it's little surprising they behave the same.

    I guess there's a bug in the app code which mess up relative vs. absolute paths. Or where it incorrectly handles resizing, eg. trying to send the imagproxy URL to mysqueezebox.com etc.

    Whatever it is: it won't be fixed...
