Player that can view multiple album art images within a single FLAC file?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

I just got around to skimming Google on how to insert custom album art into some of my collection.  I was never intending to go nuts with it and do every single album / song in my collection, just specific ones.

 

However, after figuring out how to use MP3tag to insert multiple images into a single FLAC file, I'm now realizing that there's basically no way to view those multiple images once you've done so!

 

Foobar seems to only show the front and back covers, and the disc cover and the artist image.

 

But there's no way to set the Foobar player to automatically rotate through the included images during the playback of that song.

 

So you basically have to manually right click - change it to the back cover.  Then right click - change it to the disc cover.

 

Which is not at all what I was hoping for.

 

I typically keep the playlist for my music on a separate screen, and wanted to add the option of displaying the album art of the song currently playing.  I'm not looking to mess with it every 5 seconds, so I figured if there was more than 1 image embedded in the FLAC file, the player would recognize this and simply rotate through the available images as the track is played back.

 

This seems like it would be an obvious, no-brainer feature.  Otherwise, what's really the point of having the ability to put multiple images into a FLAC file if you'll basically never see them?

 

Is there a way to do this, or another FLAC player that's better suited for this?

 

Windows 7, btw.  I know the FLAC playback options are lacking on iOS as well.

With this Foobar skin, I can cycle covers in different intervals

That's awesome, that's basically exactly what I was hoping for.  Any idea what that skin is called?

 

Also, looks like I have version 1.1.11 of Foobar.  Guess I held off on upgrading because I wanted to copy down all my playlists just in case something went wonky with the installation.  Looks like upgrading is on the to-do list tonight.

Okay, I found it:

 

The Foobar2000 theme is called CaTRoX by extremehunter1972 on deviantart:

Thanks again!
