Ok, so, I have never had a perfect music library. In iTunes? Sure. In BluOS? Never. I'd say at least 20% of my library does not show album art in BluOS. That's fine. I accepted this as my fault. Perhaps incompatible art embedded in the metadata or something. I don't know. Anyway, thanks to Covid, I've found myself with more time and I set to updated, filtering, culling and otherwise perfecting my music library. One of the items on this to do list was to fix the Album Art issue in BluOS.
I had read many threads here about the art issue and followed the instructions to a T. I have found art for each album, resized everything to a max size of 500x500 pixels, converted to .png and made sure every file was under the 600kb limit. I named each file folder.png and placed inside each albums' folder alongside the song files.
I deleted the share completely then re-added the share and rebuilt the library database.
So what did I do wrong. Still missing album art.
I went one step further and deleted the share again and added a new share with a test music folder containing just three albums. I put the exact same folder.png image inside each albums folder before indexing and boom! Nailed it right? Nope. Only 1 of the 3 albums is showing the album art.
