Album art issue

Recommended Posts

Hello,

I'm running into an issue with the beta that I haven't had before.

I have a directory of 46 songs, mp3 format. All songs belong to the same album, and have the same album name. They are properly numbered 1 through 46. Every song has a unique title. Each individual song has it's own embedded album art, 600x600 png. There are no other image files present in the folder where these songs are located.

Today, I tried to change the album art of a single song. I selected the song, pressed "Album Art", and picked an image from my gallery. When I changed it, it changed the album art of all the songs in that album. When I look at every single song and look at the "Album Art" option, each one still has the proper embedded art inside it file. Selecting the right image again changes the cover art for every song in that album.

I tried resetting the album art cache, doing a full rescan, restarting Poweramp, restarting my phone, copying all the songs from my Android phone onto my PC and copying it back, etc. (When I look at the songs on my PC, each one has the correct cover image).

How do I reset the album art in Poweramp that it always shows the embedded image, and not some thing I once selected?

Thanks,

Sem

@clever_man I did this, and now all songs have no cover art. After doing this I also tried to reboot my phone, tried to clear the cache and tried to do a full rescan. No luck so far ?

@clever_man yes, each individual song shows a 600x600 image and it says "Embed album art" under it. The "Embed album art" is different for each song. But when I select it for that song, it changes the album art for all the songs in that album. But before I tried changing one of them, all songs had their unique and original cover art.

I wonder if Max has implemented the long-requested mode to change artwork for a whole album in one go? Try viewing in All Songs mode and see if you can change them song-by-song.

@andrewilley I tried doing that, but it still changes the cover of every song in the album. It's kind of weird ?

And if that was a long-requested feature, I can't find a toggle for it. Perhaps it is a bug? I didn't think it would be, because it worked properly before I changed any cover.

@maxmp, could you comment on this please? If this is a new feature, then I agree with the OP that it ought to be an optional setting.

Seeing the same behavior on latest v3-build-838-amd64-play [838004-ab48a502a] installed via Play Store's beta channel.

I have the exact same problem. An album with 212 songs, each song has its own embedded album art. But it applies the album art of one of the songs to every song on the album, and when I change it to the right album art for one song, it changes all the songs to that same album art. Any solution to this yet?

@Semx11 album art is per album. Poweramp will set per-track cover for singles only (tracks missing album tag). Thanks!

Found the solution in another thread:

"Album Art" means art for the album. If you don't want that but have already seleted one, go to the following directory

/Android/data/_com .maxmpz.audioplayer /selected_aa

and remove the file for the album.

This works. Just delete the jpg for the album in that folder.

Thank you so much, this fixed my issue!

I understand, but gladly I was able to reset it to a different image per track in the same album through the above method. Perhaps it could be made more clear that this is possible, possibly through a "reset selected album art" button?

This needs sorting I have hundreds of podcast files from the same providers so the albums are set to them but the embedded images usually has who's presenting the show as well as other details like guests, episode numbers or dates, surely if a file has embedded art it should respect that above all else

I think this came about as a result of people complaining that when they updated one track of an album it did not update all the other songs in the same album. Just can't win I guess. Making it (another!) option might help though.

I come across the problem for album art update which is opposite to the one above.  When I tried to update the album art, it only updates the first song.  The rest of the songs are still without album art.  So, I can only update the album art for each songs one by one.  That's really tedious.  Please advise how to update one album art for all songs in a album.

I use mp3tag on my PC. It allows you to choose as many tracks as you like to embed the same album art in. Using it at the moment coincidentally ....

You can place the album art in the album folder as a stand alone file, something like "Folder.jpg" and it will show up for all songs in the album. This also reduces storage space required on your device as there's only a single album art per album.

And yes, MP3Tag on a PC can add album to all tracks in an album as a single operation.
