New Version 2.0 (04 september/2010)
This application can extract the album art embedded in the music files in a iPod, and create the necessary files to display album art correctly in RockBox.
RockBox supports Album Art but with some limitations like described in his wiki page AlbumArt.
Between the limitations are that does not support Embedded album art, only external image files in BMP or JPG format.
This application is addressed to make easy the visualization of album art in Rockbox. It reads the iPod database to find music files then it does the folowing actions:
- Scan and extract album art from music files.
- Resize the albums extracted.
- Convert the format to bmp or jpg.
- Move the file converted to a folder in the iPod (or any other location).
The album art files are stored in iPod_Control\Music\ folder in the iPod by default.
The following characters will be replaced with an underscore (_) in the filename: \ / : < > ? * |. Double quotes will be replaced by singlequotes.
Now you can see album art displayed in RockBox, and use PictureFlow to visualize albums.
It needs .NET framework 2.0+ to run (can be downloaded from here: .NET Framework 2.0 Service Pack 1 (x86)).
This app uses SharePodLib and TagLib#.
