Covers in different folder

Hello,
I am quite new to EMMS but it seems to be great!
I use it alongside J. River Media Center which saves covers in covers in
a folder where filenames are formated as Artist - Album.jpg.
Is is possible to tell emacs to emms-browser-default-covers  but that
seems to define the default cover rather than some rule for cover
location. 

Also, all my mp3 should contain embeeded covers. Would EMMS be able to
use these?

Thanks in advance,
Rasmus

See 
,----
| emms-browser-covers is a variable defined in `emms-browser.el'.
| Its value is 
| ("cover_small.jpg" "cover_med.jpg" "cover_large.jpg")
| 
| Documentation:
| *Control how cover images are found.
| Can be either a list of small, medium and large images (large
| currently not used), a function which takes a directory and one
| of the symbols `small', `medium' or `large', and should return a
| path to the cover, or nil to turn off cover loading.
| 
| You can customize this variable.
`----

So you can set it to a function which guesses the right cover by the
path name.

I see. Would this be simple function like c:/.../cover art folder/%artist
%album? (with the correct %-functions), 
or would it need to be emacs lisp?
I am guessing the later. . . I have got through the introduction to Emacs lisp
one day. . . (It seems very good, btw)

Thanks,
Rasmus

You won't get along without elisp. :-)

If you tell us exactly how your music is organized somebody may come up
with a function that fits your needs.

Seeing ??? - ?????????

Hi there,

I'm running emms (v3.0) with Emacs (2008-12-14) on WinXP.

I have mp3info for windows installed. However, it displays Chinese track
with question marks like those in the subject line of this message.

I have tried setting emms-info-mp3info-coding-system to various options
with no success. The track metainfo can be correctly viewed in
application such as vlc.

Any idea how to fix this?

Thanks,

Emms reads mp3infos output, so I suspect the output is garbled.  What
dou you get when executing `mp3info <chinese-track.mp3>' in a cmd
terminal?

That doesn't use mp3info but accesses the mp3 idv3 with some API
directly.  This way it cannot be affected by coding issues with cmd.exe.

K:\Music\cn>mp3info "You and Me.mp3"
File: You and Me.mp3
Title:   ???                            Track: 1
Artist:  ?? ?????
Album:   ???                            Year:
Comment:                                Genre: Pop [13]

Looks like it can not display it either though all the Chinese files can
be displayed correctly in explorer.

Thanks for the explanation.

Missing LastFM patch in Emms?


Hello,

In this posting:
[http://20y.hu/20081217/listening-to-lastfm-in-emacs.html], Gábor Török
says he is using tsdh's Emms to play LastFM because it has some extra
patches not in "mainline" (for lack of a better word) Emms.

Is this true? If so, why aren't those patches in "mainline" Emms?

Re: Missing LastFM patch in Emms?

Hi, 
i also use my own patched version of EMMS for lastfm,
because the patchs have never been submitted, especially to use emms in
anything with globals tags (music type) and similar artist.

Oh, and I don't have my emms repo on my server anymore, and my local one
doesn't have any differences compared to the mainline.  But I recon I
did some refactoring/adaption to new lastfm API some time ago.  So we
have to contact him as soon as possible to get those changes.

> Is this true? If so, why aren't those patches in "mainline" Emms?

Sorry, I think I wanted to give the new implementation a test drive
before asking Micheal to pull, and then I forgot about it and deleted my
repo on the server to make things even worse.  I really don't know what
drove me to do that...

Tassilo
