Album art mp4 video

Post by ulc6 » Sun Jun 17, 2018 5:44 am

MMA didn't show the "album art" of mp4 video files.

I transfered some mp4 files with album art via USB to my android smartphone, LG Nexus 5, Ores 8.1, Unleagacy ROM.
MMA listed them and correctly playback them, but didn't show the album art.
MMW and the windows file explorer show the album art correctly.
PS: The album art is set by MMW, but I transfered the files not via MMW, cause MMW says that my smartphone didn't support mp4. Yes, I set the settings in MMW to smartphone support mp4, didn't convert it, but MMW ignored this.

In that case you're relying on the Android Media Scanner to pick up the Artwork. MMW > MMA sync would be better as MMW directly edits the MMA database with more information than Android Media Scanner can provide.

Which version of MMW are you using?

Hello Lowlander,

thanks for the answer.

I use the actual MMW Gold,

I had an additional look to the native (=AOSP) gallery app.
They show correctly the album art of the mp4 video files, MMA didn't.

PS: I had also a look in the VLC media player app; they didn't show the album art too.

Best regards
