I'm running my SqueezeCenter on a low power NAS (QNAP TS-109) and I have noticed one possibility about how to increase SqueezeCenters performance.

Currently Artwork thumbnails are cached in one small size only, so SqueezeCenters has two files - original and downscaled copy.

The problems is that there is a need for a medium sized Artwork also!

Medium sized Artwork is used in SqueezeCenter web interface for the song that is currently being played.

I have noticed, that SqueezeCenter makes this medium sized Artwork on the fly, and therefore sometimes it causes music playback problems.

I think that when my music library is rescanned then medium sized Artwork should also be cached for better performance.


What do you think?

I think this would be related to this bug:

Either that or there should be a new bug that sugests changing the phumbnail from 96x96 to 100x100
