Album Art
« on: December 20, 2007, 08:00:09 AM »

Am I the only one who's album art stopped working with the 1.05 firmware update?

If somebody out there on 1.05 has album art attached to their MP3's and it shows up on the DSM-520, please let me know.

As of right now in 1.05 I believe the album art is limited to a 200x200 resolution embedded image. We are working on expanding this to higher resolution images.

Not only do I have a problem displaying Album Art since Version 1.05, I can not display any of my jpg files.  I did not have this problem with Version 1.04.  Do you know when the next upgrade is supposed to come out to solve these "Huge" issues as they are the primary reasons I bought the DSM-520 (to view photos) along with Music (with album art).

Thanks...

Obviously, DLink has not been much help at all. I'll tell ya what I found out.

The problem appears to be with the server software and firmware 1.05. I gave up on Dlinks server software, and I am now using Windows Media Player as the server. (Since there is no way to return to firmware 1.04 (without hacking it). With Media Player as the server, the album art shows up properly now.

It's seems a shame that these software and firmware releases are not tested fully before being released. I do like the DSM-520,  but I am disappointed in Dlinks support of their software.

How do you make album art display on the TV using WMP 11? I can't figure it out...

Thanks!

We will be releasing firmware to better implement the album art feature in the next firmware with the DSM-520. WMP11 seems to work best as the media server right now and album art. Please view this FAQ for adding album art to your audio files.

This FAQ pertains to Media Monkey which I don't have. The choices are not the same in WMP11. I've spent a lot of time trying to get the unit to work w/WMP11 and Napster (since Windows Media Connect is no longer available). I have album art for my CD's that I've copied to my hard drive, but the ones for Napster content don't work at all. Any ideas?

Thanks!

I got the album art to work using Windows Media Player 11.  After ripping the music.  Click on Album and find the album.  Double click on the album to display all the songs.  Select all the songs and then right click.  Select advanced tag editor.  Then click on the pictures tab.  Click on add. Search for the folder where the music is and pick the large jpg image.  Then click on apply.  then click on OK.  This works if the album was found and there was an image when you were ripping.
If there was no image during ripping and windows couldn't find it with the search for album function, then I went to Amazon.com, music, and did a search.  You can right click on the pictures and save those Jpgs to the folder.  In some cases you might just pick the best picture. 
This album art then shows on the DSM.
