Mine doesn't show the art that's in the music file tags.

I put a .nomedia file in the music folder so Samsung gallery wouldn't show every album. Then at the advice of the devs took it out. Now MMA won't show the art. I've reselected the library folder and rescanned and nothing.

I am getting so sick of this software's constant issues. More time wasted trying to resolve sync issues and this art problem than it's worth.

nvm, I came across another post and they said to re-select the library folders so that's what I did and it worked

I recently upgrading MediaMonkey 5 to one of the betas (I think the last one before it started mentioning yearly licenses or whatever) and now my album art not showing up on Android. Artwork shows up on each individual file when browsing on phone in file explorer, in addition to the albumart.jpg file in each artist's folder but it's all blank in MediaMonkey Android

Hi,
MM respect that too.

My best guess would be to disable Adding albumart.jpg in device profile

Putting .nomedia on the Music folder does suppress the albums in Samsung Gallery. So they are respecting the file presence.

The problem is it also kills all the album art in MMA.

Hi,

Respecting .NoMedia is up to manufacturer to follow standard or not. In the past Samsung was known to not respect that by default.

It must be something related to your device settings or we would be getting much more reports like yours.

Yes, MM on Android.

Sorry, guess I posted in the wrong section/forum.

MediaMonkey on Android?

I sync MM5 on Windows to MM on Android.

S9 (I know older but I prefer having an SD card).

Gallery app was showing all the album art in Albums. The option to flip from "disable" to "enable" folders to include in Android isn't' there and I don't want to have to "disable" every single album. Seems Android is insistent on showing "albums" in the SD card Music folder.

I put a .nomedia file in the root music folder I sync to on the SD card. That got rid of the album art showing in Android Gallery, but now MM isn't picking up any art.

You're talking about Android and MediaMonkey for Windows. Is that what you meant? If so can please detail more about this setup? Are you viewing files on a device connected to your PC?

I searched and did not find this addressed in MM5, only really old posts for older versions.

All album art showing up in Android Photo Gallery.

dropping a .nomedia file in the root 'Music" folder stops that craziness but now MM5 album art is not showing.

What is the expected behavior and is this the correct way to handle the issue?
