Some album art showing up and others not (mma)

Post by Sciz » Sun Oct 28, 2018 3:00 pm

Hi,
I am using MediaMonkey for android and have had some issues with getting album art to show up on some albums.

I use MusicBee on my PC, and on my android MediaMonkey. I have 128gb of space so I have manually transferred like 100 gigs of album folders to my phone. All of these folders are set up in the same way, the mp3's and a cover.jpg or folder.jpg for the album art. When I first got my new phone a few months ago I transfered most of my music library, and as far as I can remember all the album art worked for all of the albums. However in the months since when I have transferred new albums to my phone, a lot of the time the album art does not show up. I would estimate only like 10 out of 50 albums I have added since actually have album art showing up in the music library. If I go into properties of the albums where the art does not show up, I can actually see the album art in a small picture in the top left, but on the main music library pages I just get the black stock image of a monkey with flailing arms. How can I ensure album art on all my albums? I don't understand why some of the albums don't show the album art in the library when I have all my folders set up the same way and it works for most of them, and I do have the album art as a file in every single one of my folders.

Since this has basically only happened to new additions I assume something must be not working in this process, but the album art does show up for some new albums so I don't really understand what the difference would be.

Help very much appreciated!

I am on MediaMonkey pro, Version 1.3.2.0824

Hi,
ATM MMA depends on Google Media Scanner which can be problematic.

MMA 2.0 is planned to change that, but more about that in upcoming months.
