New version 2.1 (08 august/10)
This application can extract the album art embedded in music files, and create the necessary files to display album art correctly in RockBox.
If you have an iPod, you can take a look at iPod Album Art Extracter for 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 scan music files and extract, convert and save album art in a external file, just what Rockbox needs.
The following characters will be replaced with an underscore (_) in the filename of the AlbumArt file generated, : \ / : < > ? * |. Double quotes will be replaced by singlequotes.
Now you can see album art displayed in RockBox, and use PictureFlow to visualize albums.
