hey guys, great piece of software, i'm totally loving it

however, i do have a question. i checked the manual (here), and it said you can use the tag <#CurrentTrackDirectory> for getting cover art. i copied+pasted the example code into my index.html, but it won't display the image. i've been messing around with it for about 3 hours now, and i still cannot get the image to be displayed. it's linking to the correct path, everything seems ok, but the d██n image won't load.

any suggestions? thanks in advance

Are your pics filed as front, album, or folder.jpg?

Try this...
<img src="album.jpg?src=<#CurrentTrackDirectory urlencoded=1>" width="160" height="160" border="0">

it's labeled as front.jpg, and it just sits in the cd directory.

unfortunately, the code you posted does not work. the image, once again, does not get displayed. however, it seems to be "there", as i can right click and "copy link location". when i paste this in my browser, it says:

http://192.168.1.129/album.jpg?src=Z%3A%5CCDs%5CAcceptance+%2D+Phantoms

that just doesn't look right, does it? the file is located at "Z:\CDs\Acceptance - Phantoms", but i don't know why the image won't show up.

not that this probably has anything to do with it, but the album art is supposed to show up in a different page. i've got a psp, and i've successfully written a skin for it, and at the bottom of the skin i've got links to various things (playlist, browser, options, and cover art) to eliminate scrolling. so my index.httml has a link to browserart.html, but browserart.html is just one line of code... the one you gave me. do i need to have anythingthing else in the html for this to work?

*edit* hope that made sense, if not just ask me to clarify, lol

With that code, your path would decode to this...

z:\cds\acceptance - phantoms\album.jpg

If it was front.jpg, would that be correct?

Your code should be like this...
<html>
<body>
<img src="front.jpg?src=<#CurrentTrackDirectory urlencoded=1>" width="160" height="160" border="0">
</body>
</html>
