Album art not showing for some albums/files

Hi,

I'm having problems getting the album art to show for certain albums, while it is there for others.

Most of my album folders have a "folder.jpg" file for the album art, is this supported at all? Either way, I even tried using metaflac and --import-picture-from=folder.jpg, metaflac --list then shows that there is JFIF data for '3 (Cover (front))' but still I'm not seeing any of the artwork. Any ideas?

Thanks!

If you have a FLAC file with embedded art and the art isn't showing this is a bug. Would you be willing to send me an offending file on Dropbox?

After further investigation it seems this only happens if I add cover art while Decibel is running, if I restart the application then the artwork does show up. Is this expected?

Yes, because Decibel doesn't keep files open when they aren't playing so it isn't notified of changes to them. File notifications are something I may be able to support in future versions.
