    Hi There

    Quick question about the stock audio player...

    I've copied across (via USB) my audio collection from my (android) phone. Its a mixture of MP3 and AAC files (aac is from iTunes).

    On my phone, and PC (ubuntu), I can see the album art, and compilations all appear correctly as single albums.

    On the TP, most of the album art isn't present (even those directly copied from iTunes), and compilation albums appear as individual tracks.

    All play music correctly - but it's a little annoying, having spent a fair amount of time recently sorting out 'part of compilation' tags and album art tags...

    Has anyone any pointers over this? (do's / don'ts) - I'm assuming there's no MP3 tagging program on the touchpad at this time, so I could sort out in situ....

    All the best

    The issue seems to be that the stock player does not check for an Album_artist tag. Next version of AudiophileHD should address your concerns as long as the album_artist tag is set.

    Here is the latest build with better support for compilations. Let me know if this does what you need:

    go look in the photos & videos app.
    all your album art is in there.

    it annoys the **** out of me.

    Thanks for this - I'll have a looksee - I assume you download it to a directory on the TP and then then open it with Internalz Pro?

    OP.. you should be able to use a free app like MP3Tag to make sure the Meta-data of your music is set correctly for the artwork. I had this problem also - ran the MP3Tag app on my computer and don't have the artwork showing anymore.

    I wrote the app, and retain all copyrights to it.

    Anyone know of a way to get rid of all the album art in the stock photo gallery, pretty annoying to have to go through all those pictures.

    Yeah. I usually use dev tools to install, but I think you can do it that way too. If you are not happy with how it works, let me know, I am always looking to improve.

    Just clicked on the link, and it installed straight from there.... trying it now...

    Interesting that it seems that it doesn't show the album art either, however, I'm out of range of wifi at the moment, and I think I spotted a setting that said it'll get the artwork from the web?
    Unfortunately it still shows a lot of compilation disc tracks as separate albums... - what is the algorithm/tag used to determine this? - when I was going through checking the tags, the 'part of a compilation' tag is set, along with 'compilation artist'... I suspect that the only tags being used are album name and 'normal' artist...?
    Saying that, it's very useful that I can look at the music by directory (which is how I've got the music sorted)... and I really like the crossfade...! :-)

    I am moving to a new library to detect metadata, it should do a better job of finding the compilation tag. Right now I chck album_artist first, and then regular artist.

    Sent you a pm.

    So I think I figured out the problem. Like I suspected, the issue is that the webOS stock music player is not reading the tag for album artist. However, it seems that apple does not store album artist under the album_artist tag, but instead under a different tag. I should be able to rig something up to read the apple specific tag.

    This is a big one for me. I own audiophileHD but it doesn't see my playlists so it's basically useless to me

    Playlists are next after I get the new metadata library in place. Already started adding some dynamic lists for frequently played and most played.

    The Touchpad music player only shows album art that is embedded within the MP3 files as tags, not album art in a folder (e.g. folder.jpg) as Windows Media Player does.

    This is a fairly quick and easy way to deal with the problem.

    ***Getting album art to show in Music Player***

    1. Download and install the free version of MediaMonkey MediaMonkey Download
    2. Once installed, download the Album Art Tagger script from here Scripts...
    3. Click on the script file and it will install it into MediaMonkey
    4. Click File --> Add/rescan tracks to Library and point MediaMonkey to the directory where all your files are. Let it discover your music
    5. Select "Album" from the tree on the left to see your albums, and select the ones you want to fix album art for in the pane on the right
    6. From the menu, select Tools --> Scripts --> Album Art Tagger
    7. Select Process "02. Embed Artwork (copy from mask to tag)"
    8. If your album art is in the folder.jpg file in each album folder, then in the options type "<path>\folder" (without the quotes), select "embed in tag" from the drop down and remove the other file extensions to just leave "JPG". Leave all the other check boxes empty
    9. Click "Go" and wait!

    Once you have done the above, transfer the files to the Touchpad, and you will see Album art for each track.

    -- This should work for music ripped from Windows Media Player. But MM is flexible enough to deal with any setup if you take a few mins to think about it.
    -- I suggest you try it on one or 2 albums at a time before you select your whole collection.
    -- It takes about 10 mins to setup, but can take a while to execute if you have hundreds of albums, especially if on a network drive.

    ***Removing album art from Pictures/videos***

    If you find that having copied your music over to your Touchpad, the album art is shown in the Pictures and Videos app, and you want to remove it then: -

    1. Connect your TP to your computer and select USB drive mode
    2. Go to a command line on windows, go to the TP drive and cd into the directory where you have copied your music,

    cd Music

    3. type dir to make sure you're in the directory where your music resides

    4. While in the music directory type "del *.jpg /a /S" (without quotes)

    *****This will delete all JPG files from the directory you are in and below, so make sure you're in the Music directory not the root of your TP, otherwise you will delete every JPG on your device!
