I would like to see Poweramp add supportIn for the tag name "METADATA_BLOCK_PICTURE" in ogg vorbis files in addition to the currently used "COVERART" field. According to wiki.xiph.org using the tag name "METADATA_BLOCK_PICTURE" is "...the preferred and recommended way of embedding cover art within VorbisComments." Until now I have used foobar2000 and mp3tag to embed cover art in ogg files. When I started using Poweramp I found that artwork from my ogg files was not displayed. While trying to solve that problem I found Poweramp displayed art embedded in ogg files that I had tagged in Tag&Rename just fine. More experimentation revealed the two programs I had been using utilize the tag name "METADATA_BLOCK_PICTURE" while Tag&Rename employes the "COVERART" field to embed art, but can display art from both tag types. I don't want to retag my music collection so I think it would be nice if the Poweramp team would update this great player to accommodate the currently recommend method of embedding artwork in ogg vorbis files.
Album art embedded in ogg vorbis tracks (vorbis comment tags) is not displayed by Poweramp. If I include the folder.jpg file in the album folder, it is displayed just fine, but that is not how I have organized my music files. Embedded art of the same size (500X500 jpg) works just fine in mp3 and flac files on Poweramp. Through trial and error I have found that it seems that Poweramp does not support embedding cover art in vorbis files using the METADATA_BLOCK_PICTURE field. However it does support the unofficial COVERART field. See http://wiki.xiph.org/VorbisComment for info reguarding currently recommended comment fields The software I use to embedd cover art (foobar2000 and mp3tag) uses the recommended METADATA_BLOCK_PICTURE field. I found that Tag&Rename produces the COVERART field. Verizon Galaxy S3
