i'm not sure this can be said as a "bug", but oh well... (don't be rude)
let's say i have an album with "cover.jpg" in its folder
i launch a scan in gmpp all is perfecty read so far so good
then i see that the cover is only 300*300px or the quality is ugly, whatever...
so i launch "Album Art Downloader" to find a better one (win10), and the new file is saved as "Folder.jpg"
since the "cover.jpg" is useless i delete it
then i sync the files to my phone and start a new scan
after this, the previous cover is obviously lost but afaik the new one isn't "seen", gmpp doesn't say "hey the last cover is gone let's see if there is a new one with maybe another name in the same folder"
sorry for being so long, french native tongue so i can't really use shortcuts to explain
not really a bug. if artwork is changed from outside the app you always have had to manually refresh it. GMMP caches art and in most cases the cached art is still going to be around even if the original file is removed
i can add a request to add an album art check to "clean database" that'll remove missing art files (if it already doesnt do so)
ok, if i take the decision to delete the file "cover.jpg" it's fine that gmpp doesn't show this art anymore BUT is there a way to make gmpp scan the folder again to "see" "Folder.jpg" ? you said in another thread that gmpp only scan new or modified files thanks to their timestamp, so i'm wondering if a new jpg file is seen (as i'm SURE that changing "cover.jpg" from an ugly 300*300 to a shining 1200*1200 is perfectly detected)
if you run an artwork search it'll look for any albums or artists with missing art. The searches always look on the local file system first. The scanner only automatically finds art when an album is first added
