|Summary||0015898: Track Properties: Add album art Manual scan inside Track Properties|
|Description||Some users reported that Album Art is not updated even Folder contain Cover.jpg or albumart.jpg|
It would be good that on Art long Tap action context beside Delete add Option to Lookup/Search for album art locally and possibly online (if not to complicated)
I guess if Implemented it will update all tracks from same folder with Album art.
|Tags||No tags attached.|
|Fixed in build|
This suggestion helps in the odd case where an image is missing for a file, but does this really solve the problem?
i.e. if a user has a bunch of images that the system media scanner didn't recognize, then they're going to have to add images one by one with this approach. Moreover, they're going to have to do it without even knowing in advance whether an image is contained in the folder (i.e. many times, the user will check for missing album art, but nothing will be found!).
It seems to me that automated metadata lookup (already implemented) is a much better solution in the short term. And in the long term, when MMA gets its own metadata scanner, it should check the directory of newly scanned tracks for AA.
So I'm not sure if it's a good idea to spend any time on this, since it's just a short-term workaround, and not a great one.
