    Album art being derived from COPYRIGHT URL

    I have a number of albums which were released for free under a Creative Commons licence, all of which have a COPYRIGHT URL tag like this:

    http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nd/3.0/

    The album art for each such album is an image representing the CC licence. The image changes depending on the details of the licence; for example, the URL above would result in the "by" and "nd" symbols appearing on a CC template.

    These albums each have a "folder.jpg" which is picked up by foobar 2000 (so the images seem okay). How can I get SC to see the image files in preference to the licence-based image?

    Thanks,
    Steve

    If you have embedded artwork, it is used before any files in the same directory. You'll need to remove/change the embedded artwork to fix this.

    That occurred to me soon after posting. D'oh! But I did look for embedded artwork using The Godfather and saw none. Is there another tool that can help me, or am I perhaps not using The Godfather correctly?

    I didn't embed any artwork myself, so I assume it will have been done by the distributor.

    Thanks for any advice!

    Perfect! mp3tag showed me the images. All I have to do now is go through the few hundred files that I think are affected. I appreciate the help; cheers.

    mp3tag will work on multiple files and directories at one time, so you could temporarily move the affected folders into one parent folder and let mp3tag scan that, highlight all files, remove images, save, and then move the folders back to their proper locations.

    Thanks. In fact I've managed to do it a bunch of folders at a time by using the following filterL::
    Code:
    NOT %_covers% IS ""
    mp3tag tells me that there are three covers stored in each affected file: the actual album cover, a logo for Jamendo (from where they were downloaded), and the creative commons image. Is it possible to get SqueezeCenter to use the first embedded image instead of the last embedded image? That would save a lot of tagging time.

    It should choose the correct image, make sure the cover is marked as type FRONT_COVER or whatever it is. Send me a file if you want me to check it out. http://wiki.slimdevices.com/index.php/Large_File_Upload

    Thanks Andy. I've uploaded "01 - Overexpanding.mp3". According to mp3tag the cover is marked as a front cover, and the other two images are marked as lyricist and other. SqueezeCenter reads the third image, marked as other.

    OK I was wrong, SBS currently uses the image with the lowest type value. Front cover is type 3, while the 3rd image in your file is type 0, this it gets chosen. I do consider this a bug, as type 3 should be preferred above 0-2. For now you may just want to delete the 3rd image.
