Embedded art with RIP

Post by TomBK »


Could anyone enlighten me as to which format album art is embedded into the Flac files with RIP - .pngs or .jpgs?

ADS/D/Cara1 • KK/1/D • 5103 • 2 Solos • 242s/quinwired k600+k400 • Center: Klout/Ekwal aktiv • Linn silver ics • Readynas Duo/Twonky 5.0.68
Bits & bobs listed elsewhere...;-) But I'm on a Mac...

For FLAC files Rip embeds artwork as PNG.

More precisely, it creates a temporary PNG file with the album artwork and passes that file as the --picture argument to the command line encoder.
