I'm having some trouble with the browse by artwork option. My library
is mainly AAC (m4a's) plus some m4ps. For the m4a's I've used a
freeware app (Fetch Art) to lookup the artwork from the tags and embed
it in the files. If my server is set to "Use iTunes" all is well, I
can browse my library via the artwork. But if I instead use the Music
Folder option no joy, I get just a handful of albums with artwork. For
various reasons I'm forced to go the Music Folder option now... is
there any way to get my iTunes artwork displayed in the server browser?

What version of the server are you using, which skin, and on what OS? The
recent nightly builds (http://www.slimdevices.com/downloads/nightly/latest/)
will allow you to use the browse music folder and use iTunes at the same time.
If you have not tried the latest nightly, could you please try that out and see
if the artwork does appear with just music folder browsing.
