Transferring images through HTTP

Hello. I'd like to know if there is any way to implement the displaying of cover art over HTTP.
I know BrowseAmp is basically a webserver which can serve files up in the skin's root folder. My MP3 files are stored in a different folder, and I'd like the skin to show the cover art. I managed to make this work on my local Internet Explorer (programmed the skin to load the cover art using file://c:\<song folder>/folder.jpg) but then this won't work over the internet or on my PocketPC. I also managed to make it work using my computer's network name (file:\\<computer's network name>\<song folder>\folder.jpg) but then again this won't work (PPCs natively cannot access networked files through the \\<computer> scheme).
Any other ways to make it happen without having to resort to a real web server?

Have you tried the eXtended skin? It uses the ?src=<path_to_image> command to load the images right the way you want it.

The latest version of TTunes (v1.5) also displays cover art. It looks for "albumartsmall.jpg", but, this can be changed in "ttunes_art.html".

It works! It works! :-D Now I'm all set. Now all I need is to make PocketIE run in fullscreen mode...
Thanks for the quick replies!

i had a question about the extended skin ... well ... maybe not the extended skin .. but .. eh whatever .. I'm thinking of implementing some way to use a sql db or just txt or somethin  to have browseAmp remember which cover art images go with which songs

 ... for instance ... if you have a misc. folder with a bunch of stuff in it .. when you play that song and view the webpage you don't want to see just the one image in that dir that matches the image name given in the options ..

if in the options dialogue the filename of the cover art was saved  with relation to the song / album that'd be leetsauce :P

maybe i'll try and nake that options dialogue an iframe with a php or .NET page ... or perhaps the method for storing images in the ID3v2 tags as mentioned in some other post .. at least i think i read that somewhere ... ?? ... if I hadn't .. that sounds like a good idea :P

it's relly too late for me to be thinking cognitively ... sleep == gooood

I gave something like that a bit of thought, and, ended up just creating folder structures (i.e. artist/album/song).  :blink:
