My question is (and this is by no means a criticism), why do you want to use
the embedded album art? I have found that in order to get a decent picture
on my 1080p screen, I need to have VERY large album art. In the +500KB
range. Then I'd have to attach that image to EVERY song. That's just
multiplying the storage of that one image at least 10 times (assuming a
whole album). I just put the cover.jpg in the folder, and MM picks it up
fine. I understand wanting to have it embedded for use on an iPhone/iPod,
but Rhythmbox converts the cover.jpg just fine for each song. I'm just
curious as to your use case that's all. Thanks!
