Album art display issue


Volumio does not display art albums, whose URI is given in the xml.

On the other hand, it correctly displays the title, the album and the artist.
The option find covers on the web is disabled in the settings.

Volumio: 2.916

Example xml from miniDlna server:

<DIDL-Lite xmlns="urn:schemas-upnp-org:metadata-1-0/DIDL-Lite/" xmlns:dc="" xmlns:upnp="urn:schemas-upnp-org:metadata-1-0/upnp/" xmlns:dlna="urn:schemas-dlna-org:metadata-1-0/" xmlns:sec="" xmlns:xbmc="urn:schemas-xbmc-org:metadata-1-0/"><item id="1$4$274" parentID="1$4" refID="64$1$2C$F$8" restricted="1"><dc:title>'87 And Cry</dc:title><dc:creator>David Bowie</dc:creator><upnp:class>object.item.audioItem.musicTrack</upnp:class><upnp:artist>David Bowie</upnp:artist><upnp:album>Never Let Me Down</upnp:album><upnp:genre>Rock</upnp:genre><upnp:originalTrackNumber>9</upnp:originalTrackNumber><upnp:albumArtURI dlna:profileID="JPEG_TN"></upnp:albumArtURI><dc:date>1987-01-01</dc:date><res protocolInfo="http-get:*:audio/x-flac:*" size="33309177" duration="0:04:18.800" bitrate="1029649" sampleFrequency="44100" nrAudioChannels="2"></res></item></DIDL-Lite>

Any ideas?

Volumio uses album art from the album folder, it needs to be named folder.xtn or cover.xtn where xtn is either jpg or png as far as I’m aware. It won’t use overly large image files either, possibly a 1 MB size limit.

In my opinion, this is a problem, because it does not respect DLNA standardization.
So if I understand correctly, the DLNA server, must have a folder.xtn file in the album folder?

Yes, it uses the image file in the same folder as the music files. I put the full size cover in as folder-lg.jpg and a smaller 500x500px one for volumio to use as folder.jpg.

but I’m developing an application that can drive DLNA renderers, and it’s impossible by programming to copy the png/jpg file into the album folder. It is not accessible by DLNA. If there is networking of the disk in SMB, webdav, ftp… of the disk it is impossible to know the access path…

It’s a pity that volumio does not respect the standardization which is the whole point of DLNA…

Is there a possibility to make a request to the developers somewhere on the forum?

I guess @volumio has to answer your questions regarding DLNA.
