  1. WMP 12 "paste album art" pop-up missing


    I have reported this several times and the posted solution "is the problem". As of 10/24/2019 WMP 12 DOES NOT show "paste album art" in the pull down where it used to be. It appears Microsoft has removed that feature. What gives???

    :)

    WMP 12 Album art

    I am using WMP12 in W10 on a Surface Pro 2. Since moving from WMP 10 to 12 some of my album art has disappeared, even though they are still there on the MP3 tag editor. Has anyone any ideas?
     
  3. Some albums and most album art not appearing

    (Using WMP11, I ripped lots of CDs to MP3 on my Win XP PC, and synched them to my Lumia 520's SD card.)



    On my phone, many of the albums didn't appear in the Albums list, and only about one third show the album art. All of the individual songs appeared in the Songs list, however.



    I edited the album details on the PC for the missing ones then resynched the phone and that added the albums and added album art for a few, but still the great majority of album art doesn't show up. Also, a few albums now appear as multiple entries with,
    say, a 12 track album appearing as 12 individual albums, none with artwork, but all of which contain only the same single track - the first track of the real album. If I look instead for that artist's songs, all of the tracks appear normally.



    Any suggestions gratefully received.

    WMP 12 "paste album art" pop-up missing

    N97 Album Art.

    I think WMP stores the album art in the folder with the music files but does not embed the album art in the actual file. iTunes does something similar but stores the album art in a database instead of in a flat file structure.



    Just to make it clear, the problem is that the album art is not embedded in the music files.



    There are several things that you can do:



    • Load the album art onto the phone as images and link these to each album (not ideal as it requires quite a bit of work and the images need to remain on the phone and in the same location)
    • Google "embed album art mp3" and download an application that can embed the album art.
    • Import your music into iTunes, add the album art, and the convert to AAC (iTunes Plus) format which embeds the album art.
    Hope this helps!
