i have an album art .jpg file in all of my album folders - the file names
are not consistent though and squeezebox doesn't show album art for about
half my albums. is there anyway to put a wildcard (*.jpg) in the album art
box in server settings? which would display the first jpg image in any
folder? how can i get slimserver to pick whatever .jpg that's in a folder
and assume it's the art? what if there are multiple copies - can it choose
the largest/best resolution?

That's a good suggestion. Can you add it to our bug/enhancement
database:

Thanks!

This is probably best done as part of the SQL backend. if the UI can be set up
to work, the DB would be able to store a filename to artwork for every track.
An external script would be the best way to scan the music folder and pick
artwork, instead of taking slimserver resources.
