Bug Description

Binary package hint: mp3check

I recently bought a couple of mp3's from both ubuntu-one and amazon - ubuntu-one's are higher quality, but amazon's have the nice feature to have encoded the album cover at about 200k at the beginning of the song, so that e.g. gnome mplayer shows the cover instead of the visualisiation.

When using the --cut-junk-start parameter, the image is treated as junk and thrown away. I don't know if the covers were always there, maybe the were inserted from rhythmbox or banshee. Nevertheless, mp3check should recognise embedded cover or other image data in mp3s...

Unfortunately, this is the expected behaviour since mp3check does not support ID3v2 tags and considers them as junk (see this 12 year old bug: I don't think this is going to change any time soon.
