#11947 closed Patch - Feature (fixed)

[PATCH] Read embedded images from FLAC files

Reported by: Karl Newman <SiliconFiend@…> Owned by: Karl Newman <SiliconFiend@…>
Priority: minor Milestone: 0.28
Component: Plugin - MythMusic Version: 0.27-fixes
Severity: medium Keywords: flac, album art, images, embedded
Cc: Ticket locked: no


I wrote up a patch which uses taglib to read and write embedded images in FLAC music files (patterned after the support for ID3-tagged files). For some reason it only seems to work if you go to Edit Metadata->Album Art->(Menu)->Rescan for images. It doesn't get picked up when you modify the file and perform a scan for new music. Perhaps there is some method in the scanner which is not hitting the right code paths?

MythMusic: fix compilation for users of taglib < 1.8

Seems you need tablib >= 1.8 to remove Picture blocks from xiph comments
but the minimum we currently support is 1.6 so since this is a rarely used
feature just disable it on taglib < 1.8 for now.
