Rhythm box album art
« on: January 06, 2013, 11:19:12 am »
Having got my media centre thing (raspbmc) working, I thought I'd rip my CDs to play on it.

I'm using a ubuntu box with the choice of Soundjuicer or Rhythmbox to rip it. Ripping to flac.

the ripping itself goes fine, and the library updates when I ask it.Even got the hang of smart playlists.

However, I don't get any album art. No big deal, but it would be nice. Soundjuicer dioesn't do album art, but Rhythmbox should. Bung in a CD and it shows up as unknown album with unknown tracks. This suggests it's not reading the CD info, either from the CD itself or from whichever online database it uses, although I can't see where that is specified. The relevant plugins (album art etc) are installed.

Any ideas? Alternative programs to use? Or one click workarounds?
