Doesn't load covers [Solved]
« on: May 25, 2024, 08:52:58 am »

Importing my music from NAS, all albom covers are folder.jpg files.
MC 3.1 doesn't load any.

Many of the albums it loads can't be played. It shows white rectangle with "No content found here".

Checking further, it loads music correctly only from the PC itself.

If the network share on the NAS requires authentication (username and password) make sure that the computer and account on the computer running MC (client and server) is able to automatically enter those credentials and access the share. And will need read and write access.

It can be a bit confusing to get Windows 10 or 11 to automatically do that in some situations. Ultimately you need to make sure that the correct credentials end up in the "control panel >> Credential Manager >> Windows Credentials".

An alternative is to put all the music in a public share with read/write access to everyone who can access the NAS. But I don't like that solution.

The white rectangle and message indicates that MC doesn't have read/write access to the network share where your music is. For some reason.

My NAS appears in Windows Credentials.
Also accessible from explorer and MC Import.

Some folder are loaded with covers. Most doesn't. Weird.
It does load covers from the pc or external hardisk.

The NAS was shut down for a few weeeks. It all started when connected again.

Solved.

Tools | Options | File Location | Cover Art

It was changed to "In a specified folder". Not by me...
