Local Cover Art 0.3 [Picard]

I have updated the Local Cover Art plugin for Music Brainz Picard.

This plugin allows you to embed in your music files the cover of the album they belongs to.

The plugins looks for these files: Front, Cover, Folder and, if the album has more than one disc, it looks also for Front-discnumber, Front discnumber, Front_discnumber and these files have higher priority. They can be also all lowercase and the extension can be png, jpg and jpeg. The first file found is used.

There could be some problems if the disc are in different folders and each folder has a “front” image file. I’m sorry but solving this problem would make the plugin heavier because of how the plugin is implemented. If you find a solution please contact me 😊

Older versions of the plugin had problems with FLAC files. Now they’re solved.

The license of the plugin is released under Creative Commons Attribution 3.0. The authors are me and Oliver Charles and Philipp Wolfer (the authors of Cover Art Downloader, the plugin I modified to create this one). If the original license isn’t compatible, please contact me, otherwise I prefer keeping this license. I’d prefer publishing in the Public Domain but I don’t know the license of the original Cover Art Downloader. Now it’s released under GPL but I’ve modified it before it was covered with this license.

If you find bugs please contact me.
