Alternatives to "album art": show more metadata insteadl


Recommended Posts

Most of my music doesn't have album art (in many cases, it's not possible to find it online, and anyway, I've never personally really cared much for that feature). What I do have is a lot of metadata.

So...there's a great big space taking up the majority of my "now playing" screen that just says "Poweramp".

My wish is for a setting that says:

Option 1: don't use album art :

- make the transport controls bigger

- show much more information about the track metadata (*)

- toggle to swap this metadata display with the current playlist (and position of current track within it.)

Option 2: if album art is on, but none can be found for this file, either:

- display a default picture (user can select one, or perhaps a nice "music icon" )

- display a random photo from gallery app.

(*) The current "info/tags" screen shows the sort of thing I mean, but it should be much better formatted so as to fit into the space available. Compared to the current Info/tags screen, I'd change this by:

moving the filename to the bottom (and much smaller), Hide the "album art: No embedded album art" section.

Thanks very much.

Yes but:

1) You have to do this for each song one by one

2) Instead of dynamic info you have a dull static picture

I want to see the lyrics from the ID3 tag there

Or I want to see my playlist there and be able to scroll and play other songs from there

This is a huge central area, it sould be configurable what you want to do with it.
