Hi Peter,
I guess the program is reading the encrypted artist/album name attached to the image and displaying it.
the other thing is that 500x500 pixel image size was not displayed. I tried successfully upto 350x350 pixels.
Widows 10 supports the following image formats:
.bmp .dib .ico, .jiff  .jpe .jpeg .jpg .png .tiff .tif .wdp
I wonder if you can make out anything from this.

I really have no idea what you are talking about.

You changed a name of an image into another name, and now it works (you say).
I only ask you : what was the old name which did not work ?

Thanks,
Peter

Hi Peter,
The program reads  folder.jpg . I just realised that it is not important to have the Artist or Album name.
Yes I changed the downloaded image details as it appears in the website and saved it as folder.jpg
I'am quite sure it works as just now I had downloaded an album image and forgot to rename it ,and xxh did not read it. As soon as I renamed it Folder.jpg the image was displayed.

Shreekant,

Are you now saying that if the file name does not contain "folder", it does not show ?

Or maybe more clear for you :

What name does NOT show ? (literal example please !)
-> But test this against the name (after renaming) which DOES show ! So I want one example which does not show under name xyz-etc.jpg but which does show under folder.jpg and I also need ONE example of where it does *not* show (answer could be "middle pane").

I hope you can answer soon, because I like to solve this (soon).

So Colin, what you say is that when we name the coverart GreenMill3.jpg and play Unattendely, there's completely nothing visible for image - not even the X cross which normally indicates "no coverart found" ?
Can you confirm this please ?
(I never have een anything like that - just saying)

Thanks,
Peter

Colin,

I think you have an accicental different problem;
If really nothing shows for Wallpaper (so not even a frame or anything) then the program creating the Wallpaper errors out. If it helps for you to rename to Folder.jpg (or any nother more specific name like Front.jpg (there are some more)) then it forces the program to give priority to that. IOW, when this priority is not there, it tries to determine the best image from various other parameters which allows to run through all of the other available images as well. IOW :

If you recognize you indeed do have other images (picture files) for this album, then at least one of them should give troubles (of at this moment unknown kind). Thus would you eliminate those all temporarily (remove from the album folder) and the one with the random .jpg name you prefer remains, then it should work. Watch out : not that we want it to work by this means, but it would identify the problem to some degree.

Anyway, renaming a random .jpg for Cover that I have over here, to Greenmill3.jpg and it just keeps on working. Of course the picture is different but only very far theoretically the cause is the content of your picture file, indicated by the fact that it surely can work when named folder.jpg. However, might you have the idea that it is the content of the file after all, then please post the file so I can try it over here.

Thank you for your help !

Hi Peter
Your right

The download also created a folder in the music files which also had a jpg file in it. Deleted that folder and it works with any jpg name.

Thanks

Hi Colin and all,

Whether what you (Colin) found is the same as what's in my line of thinking, not sure but a fair chance :

I think it is fairly easy to obtain those what I call "stupid" ._ files of which I don't know really the origin (but I will open a topic about that). And while these files are about meta data of some kind, they have a very normal extesion like for example .jpg. Thus, you can easily have a ._Folder.jpg and while this can be anything (for name) I can't really deal with it because I look for extensions (like .jpg or .png or whatever, but in the end can be 1000s, also .AIFF files and what not). And it seems the wrong way around to adjust a(ny) program to this, so the obtrusive file can be skipped.
Point and fact is : such a .jpg is not that and if you'd open it yourself, that will fail. Thus, the Windows OS too associates the .jpg with your photo vieuwer or whatever it is - and already has been associated with, but because there is no image inside, the viewing obviously fails, as will the program which creates the Wallpaper. And more. Everything will fail on it.

Why since 2.07 ? well ... this will not be really so; I forgot whether it was 2.06 or maybe 2.04 where regarding this the prevalance changed but because of a mistake of me the prevalence of Folder.jpg changed to Front.jpg. Thus, now think that such a prevalence results in explicitly looking for a file Front.jpg and when found it shows that and does not look further (more coverart files hence images can exist in your Album Folder). Next thing is that when Front.jpg does not exist (and most of the time it does not because remember, I myself did something wrong in 2.06 or 2.04), it examines the other files for size and some more, and the fake (a.o. .jpg files) just won't ope and thus are layed aside).
But now I change back the prevalance for Folder.jpg in 2.07 and this explicitly takes it for granted that that is the one and only Coverart file - does not examine sizes etc. but just uses it ...

Et voilá ... nothing shows.

Why did nobody notice prior to 2.06/2.04 ? Well, because this "mechnism" acts like a virus and it creaps into more and more (say two years ago I didn't run into it myself ever). DropBox stuff, or what/whenever a USB stick is shared between some Apple device and Windows and ... I actually don't know. A NAS (Linux based) is key in this too.

More about this in a new topic, later.

Regards,
Peter
