Display existing cover

Asked by Viper on 2009-12-22

I have all of my covers in the same folder where music file sit with the name Cover.jpg. But CoverGloobus don't see this at all. Please, tell me what should I do to display this Cover.jpg covers (maybe via editing .py file) without download from Amazon? And do you plan to make searching of existing covers more flexible?

As covergloobus gets the path to the covers by asking the player you're using, which player do you use?

I use Rhythmbox and that's the CoverGloobus console output while searching the cover ("Enable Amazon Covers" UNCHECKED):

$ covergloobus
[INFO] Theme: Vinyl
[INFO] Song Changed: No More
[INFO] Song Changed: Smile

Files Cover.jpg just here, in right place, but CoverGloobus display only "No Cover" message. I found that if "Enable Amazon Covers" is CHECKED, everything is OK and local Cover.jpg in every folder displays correctly. But is this logically right that I should CHECK this option to display LOCAL covers? Because covers are exist locally, no need to download it. Thanks for advance!

I discovered that if "Enable Amazon Covers" CHECKED and local Cover.jpg exist program output shows:

$ covergloobus
[INFO] Theme: Vinyl

despite local Cover.jpg program download cover via Amazon site with name "three_days_grace-life_starts_now.jpg" and put it to /home/viper/.covers folder. But why?

This is solved in my bzr branch now, will probably be merged into trunk soon, and will be fixed in release 1.6!
