album art problem with growl

Postby siren77 » Mon Nov 26, 2007 9:29 pm

Hello all. I've been using the Quicksilver option to display growl notifications for music playing in iTunes. It works perfectly fine except for some specific songs, it refuses to display the album art and instead shows the iTunes icon in the notification. I know the album art has been added properly because it shows it in iTunes as well as on my ipod. I'm a newbie to Mac (and thus Growl and QS) so I'm not sure if this problem is because of QS or Growl. I tried re-adding that song to my library, as well as adding the album art again, but still no luck. Can anyone help me with this problem? Thank you.

Is the artwork in the id3 tag, or saved on the file system in the iTunes Music directory? :)

Wow thanks for the fast reply :)
To answer your question, the album art is saved on the id3 tag.

Are you saying this because you went into the file system to check? I just want to be clear, because itunes sometimes saves to the file system and not into the track itself, and I believe that quicksilver will read off that.

Try it with GrowlTunes if so.

well the way I add album art is I just go into a song (or album's) Get Info dialog in iTunes and I add the album art there. I've always believed that means it's saved on the id3 tag since it shows up on my iPod too.
Sorry for my ignorance but what do you mean by saving to the file system? Does that mean it saves in image in the folder where that specific song is? Because that's not the case for me...

at this point it looks like the issue is a quicksilver problem.. so maybe look in their forums

the answer is to convert all of your itunes music to id3 version 2.3 then quicksilver will show the artwork. or 2.4, either one.
