View Full Version : Can't get Cover Art to work!?

Hi....

I have trying to get the Slimserver to work with the Gallery View in some time now. But now I cannot find any more excuses to ask you guys - really hope you can help me.

I have just downloaded and installed the latest version of Slimserver 6.5.2 and like the other versions of Slimserver, I have rescanned mu music library several times with the option "clear and rescan the library"

My music library include about 1000 Cd's and is ripped in FLAC format. Every Cd have there own folder, where I have set in a JPEG picture of the album. The picture in every folder, I called "Folder.jpg" I know that it can be, that the big F, maybe was the problem, but in the Slimserver and server option/Interface I can set the a name to let Slimserver to look for, and here I set in the "Folder.jpg".

But my problem is still that I still cant't see my pictures in the Slimserver Gallery View - what do I do wrong??


Please!!

Kolvig,

This semms like the same problem I am having. I also have flacs with the cover as folder.jpg (small f in mine) saved into the album folder.

I can see the artwork when I select the actual album in slimserver but I don't see a thumbnail when I "browse by artwork".

I'm also hoping someone can come up with a suggestion as to what the problem might be.

I'm running slimserver v.6.3.1 on an windows xp box.

TIA

server settings->debugging
select d_artwork and d_import
click change

server settings, start a wipe and rescan
click on the log link at the end of the description text and watch the
log once it starts showing the artwork info. My guess is that something
is halting the scan before it processes artwork. The artwork for
gallery view is processed at the end of a rescan.

Thanks kdf - I'll give it a go.

Do you know if it processes some sections of artwork first as my rescans so far have found the artwork in the folders and display it when I select an album. What I can't see are thumbnails when I "browse by artwork".

I asked on another thread but didn't get a reply specifically to the question: do I need thumbnail versions of the cover art or should slimserver resize them automatically?

Thanks again kdf.

The artwork for gallery view is processed as part of the scan as this
greatly reduces the wait for loading gallery view if the server has to
check for 50 albums worth of artwork each time you load the page. A
single album track list uses artwork that is found in real time as it
only needs to look for one image. At one point, this would update
the gallery thumbnails, but this created problems when users
deliberately had no artwork, and for certain cases of file formats and
artwork filename settings.

The server resizes and caches the thumbnail images, so you only need a
single image per album.

It will add artwork as it finds it, but for reasons I've never understood, unless it is found on a real scan, it doesn't make it into the browse windows. It still shows up in the show-album and show-song type modes, just not the browsing.



I asked on another thread but didn't get a reply specifically to the question: do I need thumbnail versions of the cover art or should slimserver resize them automatically?

With 6.5 you don't need them, it should resize them for you.

LOL! Well I don't know why a third complete rescan should do it but obviously just having the debugging enabled made it work!

Thanks kdf - however it worked it did!

One sort of associated question:

Is it possible to get "browse by artwork" to sort by artist name a-z rather than just album title a-z?

TIA

Not with 6.3.1 version of the server. 6.5.x versions have a pulldown
to select from various sort orders.

Thank you very much for all the help you all given me.......

I'm really sorry to say, that I still have the problem. I can't see the pictures in gallery view, I have set into the folder for each of my Cd's.

I have trying to debugging and rescan the library, like there is been told in the threed. But it's not helping me either.

There must be a solution to the problem?....... In all my music folders I have checked the picture format, and all are in JPEG, but the resolution of the pictures is not the same for alot of the pictures - can this have anything to dog with the problem?

Otherwise I am absolutely blank to resolve this problem. And I will so very very much, like to have it to work.

Please do not give up on me.......

When you look in the log (the link is at the end of the description
text at the top of the debugging page), are you seeing the artwork
scan taking place?

You can paste some of the info from there into this thread if you need
more details about what the messages might mean. Most should say
something like "Looking for image files in..." and "Looking for a
cover art image in tags of:..."

Thank you for your patience kdf.....

I have now maken a new rescan and now I got a error message: ERROR: _isValidPath: Couldn't find directory: [F:\Musik\CD\Folder.jpg] on disk: [No such file or directory]..... Folder.jpg because I have ask Slimserver to look for these files.

And now I came to think, that the scanning of my pictures is not deep enough in the search. Because if Slimserver looks for pictures in F:\Musik\CD, it's only looked at all my music folders, but not within the folders, where I have attached the picture (jpeg). Then I click into the folder there have the name CD, then I got in about 1000 folders there have the name of the artist and the album name, and within every of these 1000 folders I have attached a picture (cover of the album)

Therefor I don't think the search F:\Musik\CD is deep enough, but how do I make the search criteria right. I have trying to let the search be like this F:\Musik\CD\, but Slimserver sets it back to F:\Musik\CD, without the extra \

Hope this helps to resolve the problem.

Thanks

Sorry, my mistake. The d_artwork setting does not get used by the
scanning process. Let's at least make sure that the process finishes
fully. Try opening a command prompt (Start->All
Programs->Accessories->Command Prompt). Then do the following:

cd \Program Files\SlimServer\server
scanner.exe --d_import F:\Music\CD --wipe --logfile c:\scan.log

This will run a scan of your music and send all messages to a file
called c:\scan.log. You can then attach that log to a post on this
forum. Hopefully this will at least show that the scan finishes
completely. If it is crashing before the end, this could be the cause
of the missing art in gallery view.

I'll add the artwork flag to the scanner in the 6.5.3 nightly builds,
so you can try that tomorrow

It certainly should be checking each folder that contains an album.
If you are using Folder.jpg, please confirm your settings (server
settings->interface) as follows:

Artwork: Folder.jpg
Artwork Thumbnail: Folder.jpg
Artwork Folder: (blank)

ah, I had a typo in the command I gave you. You need to use the proper path for your music. I'm assuming it is F:\Musik\CD

This at least proves that the scan is completing properly. Is your
gallery view still coming up with only question marks? Try a right
click on a thumbnail that you know should have artwork and select
"view image". Once that comes up, try refreshing the browser window
to reload the image. This will make sure it's not a cache problem.

As I said before, I'll have to make a change in the code to give you
more information between those two lines from the log above. You can
then try this with tomorrow's nightly build. If you feel up for it,
you can try the current nightly build here:
http://www.slimdevices.com/downloads/nightly/latest/6.5/

There is nothing specifically known to deal with artwork any
differently, but it's always worth a try. Once you download
tomorrow's build, you can install it overtop of 6.5.2 and run a
similar command:
scanner.exe --d_artwork F:\Musik\CD --wipe --logfile c:\scan.log

Hopefully that will shed some light on the problem.

Also, please do check your artwork settings and let me know how they
compare to what I mentioned in my earlier post. You want to have
Folder.jpg in both Artwork and Thumbnail setting, and the Artwork
Folder setting left blank.

Folder.jpg in both Artwork and Thumbnail setting, and the Artwork
Folder setting left blank.

cheers,
kdf

if I stand in Gallery View in Slimserver and rightclick on the picture there is'nt there. I don't get the posebility to "view image"..... I'm not sure how I find thumnail images?

I waite for the nightly builf version and hope this can help to resolve the problem...... Can I download this version in the normal download page?

I have Folder.jpg in both artwork and thumbnail settings and the Artwork is blank.

I came to think about my setup of the Slimserver and the library - it can be that this can course some trouble for the missing images?....... All my music is ripped directly to a RAID controller. This means that F: is actually a RAID controller there is configurated to RAID 5........ In my first rips, without saving on the RAID controller I got the FLAC image on all my ripped files. But after I began to save to the RAID controller, Windows could not recognize the FLAC format and now is all my FLAC without the FLAC logo....... Can it be, that my RAID system have the fault. I have absolutely no problems to play all my FLAC files, but it can be something about the view?

Like you already have guess, I'm not so familier with english. I come from Denmark - hope you undestand what I have trying to explain anyway.

Thanks

so far so good :)

If you can play your FLAC files, I would expect that there would then
be no problem with the artwork files as long as they are in the same
folders as the FLAC files.

We'll see what turns up tomorrow.

Nothing in the log is showing artwork information. Did you use the
following command:

scanner.exe --d_import --d_artwork f:\musik\cd -wipe

Also, did you download the 6.5.3 build from this site:
http://www.slimdevices.com/downloads/nightly/latest/
make sure you download the windows executable (ends in .EXE) and
install it overtop of your existing setup.

Unfortunately, I'm about two minutes from heading out the door for the
weekend, so we'll have to resume this later sunday or next week unless
someone else jumps in to help you in the meantime. good luck.

Hi again kdf.....

Yes I have used the command you have above. I also have downloaded the Slimserver 6.5.3 executable and run it over my existing setup.

About the scanning. there is the same 2 lines about the Artwork like we saw from yesterdays scanlog.

2007-07-06 21:41:47.0314 Import: Starting findArtwork().

Please post in the thread, then you have some time to analyze further... :-)

Again I must give you many thanks for the time and help you already have given me.

Have a nice weekend.

Not sure if my problem is related to the others in the thread.

Running: SlimServer Version: 6.5.3 - 12361 - RedHat - EN - utf8

On ClarkConnect 4.1, Perl is: 5.8.5 i386-linux-thread-multi

Whenever I do a complete wipe and rescan, I get cover art (and thumbs).

But, new music that is added to the library after that scan, picked up by the nightly rescan, does not get thumbnails. The art is picked up if I browse to the album detail page, but no thumbnail is created.

Seems to be true regardless of whether the image is in the file itself (as an embedded jpg) or as folder.jpg in the directory with the file.

These are all mp3s, if it makes a difference.

Any ideas? I've enabled d_artwork and run a rescan, but nothing looks odd to me in the log.

Here's the entry from the log for one of the newly added files:

---- snip ----

[Post Updated: If I browse to /music/65220/thumb_200x200_f_000000.jpg, I can see that the thumbnail has indeed been created and cached - but for some reason it isn't getting used when the New Music screen is getting drawn. Same is true for the browse by album view- generic thumbnail even though the thumb for this cover does exist.]

Is there some issue where it is seeing "no need to process image"?

When I browse to the new music screen, in gallery view, the page points to /html/images/cover.png for the new files.

Thanks in advance any ideas -

John

only a full scan will collect thumbnails. scanning just new music will
not make thumbnails

kdf - thanks for the reply.

But doesn't this usage scenario seem wrong?

I do a complete scan of my library on a new install.

Then, periodically, I add new music. There's a plug-in for rescan music library.

Out of the 4990 albums and 65000 songs in my library, 12 are new - in one album. But in order to add that album *and its cover art thumbnail* I have to forget the whole library and rescan it all?

Could I put in a request that scanning for new music should add thumbnails, if they don't already exist?

Without something like this, I'm not going to be much help. If you

Hi again kdf......

Here is a new scanning and just to be sure, you also have the lines I set into command prompt.

First I set the line "cd \Program Files\SlimServer\server" and enter - secondly I set in the line "scanner.exe --d_import --d_artwork f:\musik\cd -wipe" and enter and the scanning is on.
If I only use the second line, I got a fail and cant come further.

2007-07-09 13:56:28.5385 Looking for image files in F:\Musik\CD\Various - Ïl, Fest Og H°jt Hum°r CD1

This folder, and ones like it may suffer from a known bug: http://bugs.slimdevices.com/show_bug.cgi?id=4485


2007-07-09 13:56:29.4375 Looking for image files in F:\Musik\CD\Walter Becker - 11 Tracks Of Whack

This one should be working.

Does F:\Musik\CD\Walter Becker - 11 Tracks Of Whack\Folder.jpg exist?

Could you attach that file to this thread?

After this scan, is the artwork view still only showing the "question mark" image for ALL
albums?

You could try a program like Tag & Rename to put the artwork into the tags of each file.
This would get around the problems
of the non-latin folder names, and possibly whatever else is not letting the Folder.jpg
art show up.

I'll have to try something on my setup, as I really don't see why most of your albums
aren't working.

The results of my test, using Folder.jpg in the same folder as the files:

2007-07-09 10:51:30.6703 Retrieving artwork (cover) for: file:///C:/music/Artist/Album/NArtist%20-%20(01)%20Songtitle.mp3
2007-07-09 10:51:30.6706 readCoverArtTags: Looking for a cover art image in the tags of: [C:\music\Artist\Album\Artist - (01) Songtitle.mp3]
2007-07-09 10:51:30.6742 Looking for image files in C:\music\Artist\Album
2007-07-09 10:51:30.6760 Found cover file: C:\music\Artist\Album\Folder.jpg
2007-07-09 10:51:30.6825 Import: Album [Album] has artwork.

Here is the folder structure for this test:
c:\music\ is my music folder
c:\music\Artist is full of album folders
c:\music\Artist\Album is the test album folder, containing the track:
Artist - Songtitle.mp3

and artwork:
Folder.jpg

So, you can see why I am expecting that everything should be working for your setup. Some possible things that could be wrong include Folder.jpg files that perhaps are not being recognised as jpeg files, Folder.jpg is not in the same folder (directory) as the mp3 file, or for some reason I cannot explain the Folder.jpg file itself is not accessible from slimserver even though the fla c files are.

Or the Windows feature of adding extensions to help you...

Ie, edit a file, save it as "folder.jpg" and watch the real filename be "folder.jpg.jpg".... Depending on your settings it may show up in a file list in Windows Explorer as "Folder.jpg" and hide the extra .jpg that is there.

There is a "Show me the real filenames and quit hiding file extensions" in Windows somewhere, i think the options for the folder view.

That is a sneak feature that comes back to bite you in all sorts of ways (including mail worms that sent out stuff as "This is not a virus.txt.exe" that would show up as a txt file but really be an exe...)

I'm really sorry, but I being confused now.......

kdf. if I undestand you correctly, should my Cover Art work as it is now?......

I just been finished, to let the Slimserver scan my music folder again. I have set a couple of pictures as "folder.jpg insteed of Folder.jpg. But still no changes........ I can't see pictures from any of my music library.

I have also let the Slimserver scan my music folder, with my firewall turned of. If this could have give the problems

yes, but your log is showing no sign of the jpg files. They should be
there, but something in your case prevents that.

I'm inclined to side with snarlydwarf. I expect that you may have
created files with .jpg.jpg. By default, Windows will hide the last 3
letters. This means that if you are looking at the file in a folder,
the name will appear as Folder or folder, instead of Folder.jpg and
folder.jpg. If you rename to Folder.jpg, then what is really there is
Folder.jpg.jpg. The server will not work with this.

To turn this feature off, Look for "Folder Options" under the tools
menu in your windows folder, or windows explorer. Look for the "view"
tab, and uncheck the "Hide extensions for known file types" option.
That will make sure that you see the real file name of your artwork
files.

You could also check from the command prompt with:
dir F:\Musik\CD\Walter Becker - 11 Tracks Of Whack\

make sure "Folder.jpg" apears. It is also still useful if you do find
it and attach it to the thread so that I can verify that the file
itself is valid.

Juhuubiiiiiiii!!!

Yes yes yes. You guys have resolved my problem........

Many many thanks to your both. I nearly was come to the conclusion, that I must learn to live with it....... But not anymore. I'm really so happy to see, that is working now.

Yes, the problem was that I have jpg.jpg after Folder. So now I must rename all my cover pictures, but this will be a plesure, when I know that is come to work!!

Thank you very much!

Score another one for Microsoft for making our lives easier by hiding those those pesky filename extensions from us by default....
