More iTunes: Playlist Sharing

[ #11944 ]

In Playlist Sharing, you don't get some of the information for a song, like the disc number, or the artwork. The playlist sharing window doesn't have disc number as an option for the information you can see in View Options. If you click Get Info you can see it. Weird. But worse is that if you stream the file, you don't get the artwork. It's right there embedded in the file, before the actual music; you'd think iTunes would/could pull it out.

  • I've found that artwork added to tracks by other programs won't necessarily display in iTunes. I typically add artwork to the OpenBSD theme songs using MusicMatch for Windows but iTunes4 doesn't display it in the album window or the artwork window.

    I also spent some frustrated time trying to use your perl script [] for extracting artwork before I decided that the ID3 tags must be different. I'm still a Perl noob, how can I use 'keys' with the hash reference get_mp3tag returns so I know what all the keys are? B

        I'm interested in using Perl to access the art because I'd really like a script which can remove the art from an mp3. We're using MusicMatch to rip a bunch of CDs and its pretty good but one bug is you can't tell it not to add the album art to a ripped track if it finds some. The problem with album art is when we use Apache::MP3 to steam files containing album art, some clients won't play the t
