Randomly switching artwork

Post by push2flush »

Yesterday I added several tracks that I downloaded that had no artwork. I assigned the same artwork to the tracks and everything appeared fine. I synced my nexus 6p (using mediamonkey for android) and when I went to play it on my phone (using Jetaudio for playback), I saw a different artwork assigned to those tracks. I opened the playlist in Play Music and saw the same incorrect artwork. In mediamonkey for android, no artwork displayed for those tracks. When I got home and looked in mediamonkey (desktop), the tracks had the same random artwork assigned and the artwork that I had assigned the day before was gone. Not only is the current artwork incorrect, but the artwork was downloaded and assigned by mediamonkey as I have no music in my library which the assigned artwork matches. this is the second of 3 artwork related bugs that I'm currently dealing with.

a) You're using an old release of MediaMonkey (MMW), the latest is 4.1.15.
b) Are you using wifi or USB sync?
c) MediaMonkey only syncs 1 Artwork per Album (not Track). So if you have track based Artwork in MMW you won't get the desired results in MMA.
