    Hello, I purchased a Nexus One a couple of months ago and I am happy to say I feel like I made the right decision. The music player I wasn't to impressed with though so I downloaded Mixzing. I love the app, it works great and is very smooth. But I was wondering how can I get album artwork into this app. Please Reply as soon as possible, Thanks. :)

    In a similar vein, I am using Realplayer on my Desire. Artwork seems to get displayed if there is a jpg file in the album folder.
    Can anyone confirm this, and also if the same applies to other music player apps?

    I was pulling my hair out on my Hero, trying to get the album artwork to display. Then purely by accident I discovered that if you place a .jpg file called AlbumArt.jpg in the folder containing the music it displays it.

    I am new to Android so not sure if this will work on the Desire or Nexus One, but perhaps its worth a try :)

    I have answered my own question to some extent. Realplayer will display the first jpg file (alphabetically) that it sees in the album folder. Not absolutely sure, but the HTC music player seems to do the same.

    i use the cubed player. it gets the artwork for you. you have to make sure all the music files have the right information tho. Any Art Grabber needs the info to be correct to go grab it. Check out the Cubed Music player in the market. its free.
