The latest version (9b) has a bug were it defaults to image embedded within audio files instead folder.* image, images embedded in the audio files have low resolution making the cover look smeared and blurry even if high resolution cover photo is present in the album folder.

I really like this, although I might suggest a simple visual (or at least a higher-quality "no album cover" picture) when the file doesn't have an album cover and a more elegant solution to replace the obnoxious blue bars that you use now. (If the blue bars are out of your control, I apologize.) Otherwise it does what I got it for without any trouble.

Can you change command for configuration.
example letter c on kexboard?

Great plugin! Would like to see support for .bmp files and the ability to toggle through image files in the folder being played i.e. cover, back, cd, liner notes, etc...

Why if download failed, local cover are not shown ? (or maybe you could add proxy authentification support :-) ).

Nice plugin!
But I dislike "No Album Cover" image :( I'll reshack if I can.

First of all the resolution is lower than the 1x1 square of default skin's Vis vindow, pixelfont could fix the problem.. And the second - it's just not great. But I still vote 4 of 5 ... no 5 of 5! Cuz it does The Whole exact job of coverart display! Even standalone 'CD Art Display' app needs to be tweaked and still does not do everything

Exact what I needed. Thanks for providing this plugin so I can verify the cover art for my portable player rip.
